iPhone 14 leaks: Leaked images of the upcoming iPhone models have been circulating online for a few weeks now, and if you’ve been paying attention then you probably know what to expect: a new design. You might not like it—especially if you were hoping for an edge-to-edge screen or a triple camera on your next phone—but that doesn’t change the fact that this is just another iteration of what we’ve come to expect from the device. However, that might change with the release of the new leak.
A video has surfaced on Chinese social media site Weibo purporting to show nearly all of the inner workings of Apple’s upcoming smartphone, along with an array of other details. If accurate, this leak points to some very important changes coming to all future iPhone models moving forward…
Is iPhone 14 coming green?
The video, which was shared with the Weibo hashtag #iphone14leak, features a young woman opening the new phone and taking us through what’s inside. There are three major points of interest in this video. The first is that there is no headphone jack on the iPhone 14. Rather, the phone uses Bluetooth headphones similar to Apple’s AirPods.
Secondly, we see that there is a larger battery compartment on the back of the device, meaning that Apple could be making it easier to swap batteries without having to take off the case. Finally, and most importantly, we see that this is not an iPhone XS model but rather a “iPhone 12 Plus” with a shapely edge-to-edge screen and triple camera setup.
It will also have an RGBW camera for augmented reality, which is rumored to be exclusive to this model (along with other additional hardware changes). These are all significant departures from what we have come to expect from iPhones in recent years…
iPhone 14 Price Leak
It appears that the price of the new iPhone will be $900, which would be a significant increase over the current model. Apple has traditionally sold its phones for between $650 and $850, so this is a dramatic departure from their usual pricing strategy.
Furthermore, this leak offers up some significant hardware changes with regards to the design and functionality of the phone. It has been rumored that Apple’s next flagship will have an edge-to-edge screen, four cameras on the rear of the device, and no front-facing camera.
This leak confirms those rumors while also revealing a potentially much more powerful chipset than what we’ve seen in previous models. Additionally, it seems like Apple will be ditching 3D Touch as well as Force Touch altogether in favor of using pressure sensors on the sides of the display instead. The video also reveals a near bezel-less design with a tiny home button at the bottom center of the device.
The video also gives us our first glimpse at one of Apple’s rumored new iPhones–the iPhone X Plus–which looks nearly identical to this leaked one except it has two cameras on the back side rather than one. If true, then this means that we may finally get a triple camera backside on our future iPhones! The video also claims that users can expect these changes for three new upcoming generations of iPhones: iPhone 8S (iPhone 8SE), iPhone XS (iPhone XSE), and iPhone X
Apple iPhone 14 Storage
iPhone 14 Pro Capacity
The iPhone 14 will be the first Apple smartphone to feature a 256GB storage capacity. This is a huge step up from the current standard-setter, the iPhone 12 PRO MAX(128GB), which has been the flagship since it was released in late 2021.
The reason for this upgrade is quite simple: data storage and demand are continually on the rise, and storage sizes must follow suit. With more people using smartphones and streaming services like Netflix, Apple is finally starting to feel the pressure of not being able to keep up with its customers’ demands.
256GB may sound like a lot of space, but you need to remember that there are countless other apps and files on your device as well. With all these things running simultaneously, going over 128GB can get tricky quickly.
