Apple just announced that they have developed over one hundred million apps since the release of the first iPhone in June of 2021. At that time the App Store was only available for a few dollars per app and there were very limited options in terms of platform and graphic design. Today, the iPhone is an everyday technological accessory and has a long list of features that make it a desirable choice for consumers. What will the new iPhone 14 look like?
The official Apple roadmap does not mention a release date for the iPhone 14, however it may come as soon as this year’s model, the iPhone 12 Pro max. Apple recently introduced several new products to their lineup including the iPhone 7 and the Apple iPod Touch. These products have a tendency to outsell their predecessors, so it could be that these are part of a launch early in the year. Since the Apple Watch is also on the horizon, Apple may decide to introduce the next generation of their smartwatch before introducing the next version of the iPhone. Since the rumors are all about new hardware, accessories, and software updates, it is likely that the rumors are true and that the next Apple Watch will be introduced sometime in 2021.
Since the company is notorious for “feeding” the media false information in order to promote their products, it is likely that the next iPhone will be introduced with a lineup that changes every year. The most recent lineup would include four phones. Although the analyst speculates that the four devices could be the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 7, it is more likely that one of these will be the primary product. A primary iPhone could have everything that the company has developed for the iPhone in a single package, or it could have additional features that are specific to each model.
Two of the rumors state that the next Iphone could see a release date of mid-late September. If Apple is planning to introduce two new models with drastically different hardware then September is not a bad guess. It could also be a bad guess if they are planning for a simultaneous release of their previous model. If the previous model was released in April, then it could be a bad guess to release a new model in September as it would require new software, hardware, and different applications. A simultaneous release date would require that Apple must first figure out what they need to update to support the new generation of iPhones and then they could make a corresponding upgrade to the software and hardware.
Another rumor claims that the next Iphone will include a high-tech camera. The rumor says that the camera will use the infrared technology that the iPod uses to capture images. The infrared light is not visible to the human eye, but it is detected by the camera’s infrared sensor. This would mean that the pictures could be released in black and white or in color. The infrared light will allow the camera to determine focus even in low light situations.
A rumor states that the biggest change in the iPhone 14 would be the increase in the refresh rate. Many people believe that the iPhone is following the iPhone 7 and Android phones in that the iPhone refresh rate is slowly increasing from the current rate of about thirty frames per second to a rate of a slow-motion video mode. Some people think that this change will only take place if the iPhone can do two things at once. It could be a way to increase battery life on the phone while making it easier to use touch screen controls. However, it could also mean that the iPhone will finally be able to capture HD video.
If this is true, then there are only four years left for Apple to ship out their new model of iPhones and hopefully a new camera system along with it. The other rumors say that there will be a total overhaul of the camera system. One leak says that there will be two camera systems in the new iPhone. One camera system will be able to take pictures, shoot videos and then import them into the Live Photos feature of the mobile app while another camera will be used to take still shots.
A newer rumor says that the Iphone 14 will have a much smaller design than the previous models. The rumor says that Apple will be cutting the size of the dock connector that they use as well as some of the features found on the iPhone. Some reports indicate that the lack of internal expansion will cause the new lineup of iPhones to be priced lower than any of the previous models. So hopefully we will get more information on the Iphone 14 sometime in the near future.
