Apple iPhone 14 Design
The new iPhone is expected to come in a new design, ditching the famous notch look of the iPhones since the release of the iPhone X. The new smartphone, however, may feature a hole-punch or a combination of a pill-shaped and hole-punch cutout to house the front-facing camera as well the necessary hardware needed for face-ID.
Also, Apple may stop focusing on the iPhone mini and release 6.1 and 6.7-inch iPhones only. The iPhone 14 and 14 Pro are small devices while the iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max are much bigger. The phone might also feature a titanium frame with a redesigned microphone and speaker grills.
The body of the new iPhone 14 is said to be slightly thicker so that the flash, lidar scanner, and lenses could sit flush with the rear glass.

Apple iPhone 14 Specs
The new iPhones are expected to come with an upgraded A16 Bionic chip that will be built on a 3 or 4-nanometer chip; every upgraded chip improves the efficiency and power of the phone.
The ultra-wide camera is expected to be improved in the new iteration and there are also talks of a “periscope” lens that provides much greater optical zoom. The main shooter can be a 48-megapixel camera with the capability of recording 8k videos. However, this is not yet clear if these additions will be present in this year’s release or not.
There are varied speculations about the new iPhones coming with a 120Hz ProMotion display. Some experts believe that Apple is sourcing displays from other vendors as well and there is a possibility that every iPhone 14 has a high refresh screen. However, the Korean website The Elec claims that at least one iPhone model will come with the standard 60Hz screen.
As for connectivity, Apple is said to be using the world’s first 10 gigabit 5G modem for smartphones, the Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 modem. The phone will also feature WiFi 6E connectivity and users will be able to enjoy high-speed wireless transmission that is necessary for augmented and virtual reality experiences.
Other features include a car crash detection feature, unavailability of a physical sim slot, satellite connectivity, and higher storage.
