Apple has reportedly started production for its September product launch event for the next iPhone and Apple Watch
New ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ information will be revealed at an esports event later this week
iPhone 14 Pro specs may include 48MP main camera and 8GB RAM
Apple is expected to tweak the iPhone 14 lineup next year, and a new report suggests the Pro models could ship with some highly requested upgrades. The high-end devices could be introduced with a new main camera and a higher RAM capacity.
Multiple reports mentioned that Apple would no longer launch a “mini” model next year. But the iPhone 14 series will have a base model with a 6.1-inch display, 6.7-inch “iPhone 14 Max,” 6.1-inch “iPhone 14 Pro,” and 6.7-inch “iPhone 14 Pro Max.”
A research note from Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu (via MacRumors) predicts that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will sport three rear-facing cameras just like their predecessors. But what could change next year is that both devices may have improved main cameras.
Currently, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max features three 12MP sensors, including a wide-angle primary camera. However, Pu’s note suggests that iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max would ship with a 48MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and 12MP telephoto lenses.
Pu’s prediction lines up with an earlier report from another renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, who also expects the iPhone 14 Pro phones to ship with a 48MP camera. Kuo also expects the new camera to allow the device to capture videos in 8K resolution.
Apple is also expected to increase the iPhone 14 Pro phones’ RAM capacity next year to 8GB RAM. If accurate, this should be one of the most notable upgrades from the smartphone lineup next year. However, it is unknown if the standard models of the iPhone 14 will get the same treatment. Currently, the iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 offer 4GB RAM, while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max both have 6GB RAM.
Next year could be a big one for iPhone fans. Aside from the expected upgrades mentioned above, several reports are claiming that major design changes could also be in the works. For one, the iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to ditch the notch for a hole-punch cutout.
It will still take time, though, before Apple confirms the leaks and predictions. The iPhone 14 series is likely to be launched in September 2022.
