iPhone 14 will have 4 major changes
Apple has just launched the latest generation of iPhone, but the gossip about iPhone 14 is boiling again. This time it is about the iPhone 14 and other follow-up models. The core question is: What new features will Apple bring? What can we expect in 2022?
More importantly, who can you believe it? In the past few years, the name Guo Mingchi has appeared in foreign technology and financial media as many times as possible. He is an authoritative Apple analyst in the industry. As soon as his analysis report comes out, all major players The media are the first to explode, because he has successfully predicted Apple’s technology, products and delivery volume are quite accurate. Recently, this analyst has also joined the gossip battlefield, but to give Guo fans more room for imagination, let’s take a look at the key points:
iPhone 14 lineup: Is the Mini going to get bigger?
According to Guo Mingchi’s analysis, Apple should want to completely abandon the iPhone mini in 2022 because of poor sales. Therefore, there will no longer be an iPhone with a 5.4-inch screen in the future. Instead, Apple is likely to plan to launch a low-cost basic model called the iPhone Max. According to analysts, this phone is equipped with a 6.7-inch screen and is priced below the $900 mark.
Will iPhone SE have a 5G version?
The iPhone mini is most likely to be eliminated because of poor specifications and high prices. Guo Mingchi’s report mentioned that the iPhone SE will have the next-generation 5G version in the coming year. However, in terms of design, the iPhone’s mid- and low-end products are inherently It is unlikely to change, the new generation of iPhone SE is also the same, the shape is similar to the previous generation. Guo Mingchi also pointed out that this model was developed based on the iPhone 8 specifications and is equipped with a 4.7-inch screen. The TouchID located below the ID sensor should also remain unchanged.
How about the bangs and camera upgrade of iPhone 14?
On the other hand, Guo Mingchi expects major changes to the iPhone 14. He talked about the upgrade of the camera with a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens. The “bangs” that many people don’t like will disappear completely. The original position uses an ID sensor design, with the lens buried underneath, and a 3D sensor for face recognition is also connected. .
During the epidemic, everyone expected that the iPhone 13 could be equipped with on-screen fingerprint recognition, so that there was no need to take off the mask. As a result, everyone was disappointed. Guo Mingchi said that this technology does not seem to have been overcome, and it even has to wait until 2023.
Do we need a foldable iPhone?
Guo Mingchi said that anyone who has been expecting Apple to release a foldable iPhone may have to wait longer, even 2023 or 2024. This is his analysis based on the supply chain’s process status and capabilities, but the reason for the delay is unknown. .
Whether these predictions will come true remains to be seen: As usual, Apple declined to comment on these rumors
