No matter how you measure these things, the iPhone reveals that each fall is the single biggest event in Apple’s calendar. It impresses the most customers (and potential customers), drives the most revenue, and gets the most media attention so far.
Yet it is almost always a frustration.
Perhaps that is inevitable. How can anything be created to spread speculation and rumors for a whole year? That’s not possible যদি unless Tim Cook gets a sub- $ 200 knockless and portless iPhone with an under-screen fingerprint sensor stuck in his back pocket. No real iPhone has been able to compete with the imaginary iPhone in the human head.
But it’s a reflection of Apple’s innate conservatism when it comes to its most lucrative product line. For most of the year, the company simply repeats with the new iPhone, popping in a faster processor, tinkering with the camera, and adding support for the quality of a communication technology that other manufacturers have incorporated over the years. Occasionally, Apple adds a curve to the sharp edge or makes the groove slightly smaller. Technical writers can get the whole article from these little changes, but I suspect to the general public that the new iPhone seems to have changed very little in five years.
There’s an element here that says, “If it doesn’t break, don’t fix it.” Definition of iPhone almost unbreakable dictionary. Despite the rare changes, despite the relentless jokes about the lack of innovation, and despite the fact that it usually has weaker features than the Android equivalent (whether you believe such things are important or not), this product line alone makes more money than Microsoft’s entire business. A radical change will be brought Huge Risk
This is not to say that Apple Never Makes a big change. Switching from the home button to the notch was a reasonably big deal with the iPhone X in 2017, and reviewers say so at the time. However, Apple keeps the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus as a hedge. Also, Apple didn’t have much choice. Due to advances in the design of Android phones, the iPhone looks old. The sheer inertia of 50 50 billion in quarterly revenue makes the iPhone a kind of corporate cruise liner, capable of changing direction with just a few notices or the push of small tugboats.
Safe inside and out
Let’s get precise. What can we expect from iPhone 14?
Size: Basically the same, give or take one-hundredth of an inch on Pro models. Oh, and there won’t be a mini model, so the only sizes to choose from would be 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches.
Screen: Same, groove and all. In the Pro models, we’re pretty sure the notch is on the way out, but it will be replaced by two smaller apertures, which we’re struggling to see as a huge improvement.
Lightning port: Not going anywhere. It will probably be replaced by USB-C, but not before 2023.
Camera: Also the same: two cameras with three cameras in the Pro models. Speaking of a 48MP sensor, which will still produce a 12MP final image but better performance in low light and 8K video on Pro models.
Processor: At least buyers of the Vanilla iPhone 14 can rely on next-generation processors … or can they? There has been serious talk this fall that Apple could limit the new A16 to the iPhone Pro model and give the basic iPhone 14 and 14 Max some soup-up A15.
As you can see, this is the shape of a quiet fall. More than ever, Apple is pushing consumers to pay for the premium version of its most important product, leaving the standard versions as annoying. And even the pro models, who are getting the lion’s share of the change, are unlikely to see the real radical differences because huge bets encourage conservatism and risk aversion.
The iPhone 14, along with its Pro and Max siblings, is expected to be unveiled at a special event in September. In the meantime, you can keep up with the latest rumors with our iPhone 14 SuperGuide. But don’t expect to find anything so exciting.
