iPhone 14: Coming in 2022 and Everything to Know

There are still a few months until the 2022 iPhone 14 models are ready to ship, but because these smartphones are expected to receive considerable changes, we've been hearing rumors about them since even before the iPhone 13 models were released.

Since 2017, iPhones with Face ID have featured a notch on the front to hold all of the essential electronics for face recognition, but with the release of the iPhone 14, that will change. The notch is scheduled to be removed from the iPhone 14 Pro models in 2022 in favor of a new design. Right now, rumors are conflicting, but it appears like Apple will utilize a mixture of a circular hole-punch cutout for the camera and a pill-shaped cutout to house the crucial Face ID components. Unfortunately, this functionality will only be available on the iPhone 14 Pro models, while the normal iPhone 14 models will continue to have a conventional notch.

The back camera might also get a makeover, with Apple introducing a thicker shell that would minimize the camera bulge. The lenses, flash, and LiDAR scanner might all be flush with the back glass if this is true, although we've only heard one rumor indicating this.

Some of the new iPhones may feature a titanium frame, and redesigned speaker and microphone grilles are a possibility. Apple could also use a new vapor chamber thermal system that will keep the iPhone cooler to minimize the impact of faster chips and 5G connectivity.

New iPhones always include camera improvements, and the iPhone 14 is no exception. There will be improvements to the Ultra-Wide camera, and there's a possibility that Apple will introduce a "periscope" zoom lens that allows for much greater optical zoom, but it's still not yet clear if this will come in 2022 or 2023. The Pro iPhone models could also get 48-megapixel cameras and 8K video recording capabilities.

Rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 models are likely to continue to use the same A15 chip that was introduced in the iPhone 13 series, while the iPhone 14 Pro models receive an updated A16 chip.
