We are already in the second half of March, which means that Apple does not have much time to determine the final design of the new iPhone models. They’re expected to be released sometime in September, and the company typically lays out design and hardware configuration details about six months in advance. So it’s hardly a surprise that the first sketches with the new phones have started to appear, based on CAD plans of the phones, which reveal what appear to be the final design candidates for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.
Other than the lack of a notch, the iPhone 14 Pro hasn’t changed much
The first images taken from the iPhone 14 Pro 3D blueprints show what we’ve seen so far in various other leaks. We’re talking about a phone similar in shape and size to the iPhone 13 Pro, with a 6.1-inch display and flat edges. However, based on previously revealed information, it appears that this model does not feature any new design elements as has been suggested. Thus, one cannot speak of a smaller room module, but of an even larger module.
It looks like Apple will improve the camera hardware again on the iPhone 14 Pro, likely with larger sensors, which will cover even more space on the back of the phone. The module will be highlighted again, with a pronounced “bump”. Otherwise, we don’t have too many surprises in this regard: three cameras, a flash and a LiDAR sensor.
The screen is the only one that differs from the iPhone 13 Pro, with a double cutout at the top: one for the front camera and one for the True Depth module, used for Face ID authentication.
The iPhone 14 looks almost identical to the iPhone 13
However, the “standard” model of iPhone 14 is even less modified than that of the 14 Pro. It looks almost identical to last year’s iPhone 13. The screen uses the same small “notch” that debuted in 2021, while the camera uses the same two lenses, positioned diagonally on the rear of the device.
iPhone 14 upgrades may be minor compared to the previous generation. While the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to launch with the new A16 Bionic processor, the “standard” iPhone 14 might get the same Apple A15 Bionic processor. The only upgrade would be 2GB more RAM.
Everything indicates that the iPhone 14 generation will be another year of minor upgrades. This design started with the iPhone 12 and will likely be carried over to the next generation. Recently, Apple only changed the design after three generations, so we can only expect something new in 2023 with the launch of the iPhone 15.
