The iPhone 14 Pro The iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to top out with features like thinner bezels and a “punch-and-punch” TrueDepth camera array design rather than a notch, but the standard iPhone 14 models are believed to be Lacking these upgrades. For the first time, the standard Iphone Models are also expected to miss Apple’s latest chip, with “A16” is reserved for iPhone 14 Pro only. According to rumors so far, the standard iPhone 14 models will drop a handful of new features that are exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models, including:
Other, less likely rumors about A .’s potential Titanium structure and Steam room thermal system Also focus on the iPhone 14 Pro models. As such, it appears that Apple plans to continue its trend of increasingly distinguishing between Pro iPhone and non-Pro models, as many of the cutting-edge new features first appeared on Pro models, before moving to non-Pro models at a later date. For example, the standard iPhone 15 The models are rumored to feature the iPhone 14 Pro disc and TrueDepth Pinhole Camera Array design.
With that in mind, what upgrades and features are the standard iPhone 14 models expected to offer later this year?
Larger size option: ‘iPhone 14 Max’
distance lackluster sales to iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini, both featuring a 5.4-inch screen, Apple reportedly Plans to stop producing small iPhone And introduce a larger model to replace him in the lineup.
The iPhone 14 Max is expected to sit atop iPhone 14 in the group and features a 6.7-inch screen like iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Pro Max. In the same way that ‘mini’ iPhones in recent years have offered all the same features as ‘mini’ iPhones iPhone 12 And the iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 Max is expected to offer all the same features as the iPhone 14 standard but with a much larger screen.
While it is said that there will be no iPhone 14 mini, iPhone 14 Max will offer an option for users who want a new iPhone with a larger screen, but don’t need “Pro” features like the ProMotion display and telephoto camera. As one of the most visible changes to the iPhone lineup this year, iPhone 14 Max could take center stage in iPhone 14 marketing.

Although Kuo suggested that all iPhone 14 models will feature 6GB of memory, the LPDDR 5 memory of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be one and a half times faster and up to 30 percent more energy efficient.
A 50 percent memory boost in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max could enable it to keep more apps and browser tabs open in the background for faster resumption, give developers more space to build powerful memory-hungry apps, and make devices more futuristic — steadfast in the years coming.
Improved battery life
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max can offer improved battery life Thanks to the new and more efficient 5G chip.
The 5G RF chip of the iPhone 14 is said to be made using the 6nm TSMC process, providing a physically smaller chip with lower power consumption. The 6nm RF process enables the chip to use less power on the sub-6GHz and 5GHz 5G bands while still providing a high level of performance.
In addition to being more efficient, shrinking the large radio transceiver component inside the iPhone is expected to free up physical space. Each additional square millimeter of volume reclaimed is said to make more room for a larger battery. Together, the improved efficiency and miniaturization of the iPhone 14 RF chip are believed to improve overall battery life.
Wi-Fi 6E Connectivity
All iPhone 14 models are expected to support Wi-Fi 6E. Wi-Fi 6E provides Wi-Fi 6 features and capabilities, including higher performance, lower latency, and faster data rates, extended to the 6GHz band. The additional spectrum provides more airspace than current 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi, resulting in more bandwidth and less interference.

Ultra Wide Camera Improvements
iPhone 13 Pro introduced a f/1.8, 6P (Six-element lens) ultra-wide-angle camera with autofocus. This year, this improved ƒ/1.8 Ultra Wide camera is rumored to be leaking to both standard iPhone 14 models.
Front camera improvements
Besides the improvements to the rear camera system, the iPhone 14 front camera is rumored to feature even more significant improvements.
Specifically, all four iPhone 14 models will likely be It has an upgraded front camera system With autofocus and a wider f/1.9 aperture. In comparison, the front camera on all iPhone 13 models has a fixed focus and an ƒ/2.2 aperture.
A wider aperture will allow more light to pass through the lens and reach the sensor. Kuo said these camera upgrades could improve the depth-of-field effect for Portrait-style photos and videos, while autofocus could enhance focus while shooting. confrontation time and Zoom video calls.
Color options update
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are rumored to come in a range of color options, including Black, white, blue, red, purple.
Assuming that the rumors about the iPhone 14 black and white options actually refer to Midnight and Starlight, the new color assortment will mean the use of pink and green on the iPhone 13 will be discontinued. Except for mid-cycle color additions, such as Green and Alpine Green for iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Earlier this year, information indicated that the iPhone 14 will be launched with the same number of color options as its predecessors.
As in recent years where the same multi-colored colors have been updated across generations, the blue and red color options of the iPhone 14 are likely to be shades of up to date compared to the iPhone 13 models. However, the choice of color options on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro can make the difference. It looks somewhat similar to that of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, but it’s likely to be announced by reintroducing the shade of purple.
The iPhone 14 Purple color option seems reasonable considering that Apple introduced a Purple iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in a mid-cycle update in April of last year to Positive response from customersand 24 inches iMacsixth generation iPad miniAnd the fifth generation iPad Air All are available in purple.
