Of course, the excitement and attention over Apple’s next-gen ultra-high-end handsets never really subsided, with a steady stream of information
practically leaking from everywhere
these past few months, but today’s visual reveal is different from everything we’ve previously seen.
By no means surprising, as they essentially line up perfectly with all the other renders floating around since March, the super-high-quality images produced by Ian Zelbo
carry Jon Prosser’s Front Page Tech
stamp of accuracy while depicting purple, silver, graphite, and gold iPhone 14 Pro flavors in unprecedented detail.
Only one special iPhone 14 Pro color this year?
Unfortunately, it sure looks that way, at least for now, with details of this nature however being subject to change until the very last minute. As things stand, Apple
is definitely planning to retain the silver, graphite, and gold hues of the iPhone 13 Pro
for its 2022 sequel while basically replacing the “Sierra Blue” paint job with an arguably snazzier purple.
Of course, it’s far too early to be sure that a green-coated iPhone 14
Pro will see daylight next spring, so for the time being, we should just feast our eyes on these razor-sharp and presumably 100 percent reliable renders of the silver, purple, graphite, and gold versions of the 6.1-inch handset coming this fall.
There’s really not a lot to add today to everything we already knew about the iPhone 14 Pro design, which is all but guaranteed to look extremely similar to its predecessor from behind while getting rid of the outdated and highly divisive notch in favor of an equally as controversial combination of a pill-shaped screen cutout and pinhole selfie camera.
iPhone 14 Pro specs and features you can take to the bank
While the latest display tidbit
rumored on the interwebs is “expected” but not “confirmed” yet by an otherwise rock-solid insider, the specifications we’ve heard from multiple sources that Jon Prosser is essentially ready to vouch for today include a hot new 48MP primary rear-facing shooter
with advanced pixel binning technology and up to 8K video recording support, an upgraded telephoto lens with seven instead of six elements, and a 6GB RAM count.
That 48-megapixel camera expected to produce the sharpest possible 12MP photographs is likely to be one of the key components setting the iPhone 14 Pro
and Pro Max
apart from their non-Pro siblings, both in terms of imaging muscle and overall device thickness.
Cash-strapped “iFans”, however, may also need to settle for last year’s Apple A15 Bionic
chipset in addition to last year’s notch on the iPhone 14
and iPhone 14 Max, although for what it’s worth, said previous-gen SoC is at least tipped to be paired with the same 6 gigs of memory as this year’s (and last year’s) Pro models.
Things like satellite connectivity
(across the board) and super-premium titanium sides
(for Pro and Pro Max variants only) are also rumored but far from guaranteed, with price points largely missing from the conversation as Apple continues to navigate chip shortages and rising component costs
