What’s New in the iPhone 14?
The iPhone 14 is the next generation of the iPhone. Its features include Face ID and Touch ID, New front-facing camera, and IP68 water and dust resistance. This article will go over some of the most important features of the new iPhone. We’ll also look at what the new phone has to offer and whether it’s right for you.
Rumors abound that Apple is working on a new design for Face ID on its next iPhone. According to a Bloomberg report, the technology could appear under the display. This would allow the camera to remain flush with the glass body, a design that would be more appealing to some users. Apple has been known to change the appearance of its iPhones every few years, and this latest redesign looks set to be no exception.
While there have been a lot of rumors about the iPhone 14, many are still waiting for it to come out. Apple is expected to make it available in the fall, and it is expected to include Face ID as a standard feature. As such, the phone is a hot topic among consumers. However, it is unknown if the under-display Face ID feature will be included in all models.
Considering the iPhone 13’s notch, Apple may not want to abandon the technology anytime soon. This is based on Apple’s patents. However, even if the notch is gone, the company will still be adding the components necessary for Face ID. This will give the iPhone a considerable advantage over its rivals.
Face ID is easy to use and works nearly every time. The new system is also 30% faster than its predecessor, and it supports more angles. Previously, Face ID required you to pick up the phone and hold it at a certain angle to unlock it.
The iPhone 14 may have both Face ID and Touch ID. Apple is still developing screen tech and may place both sensors under the screen at some point in the future. In the meantime, Face ID and Touch ID are present on devices without a home button, such as the iPad Air (2022) and iPad mini 6. Ming-Chi Kuo had previously predicted that the next iPhone would have Face ID and Touch ID, but we are not sure which one Apple will choose.
The absence of Touch ID in the iPhone 14 has been widely rumored for a while. Apple executives have repeatedly hinted that it won’t be on the phone this year. However, display supply chain consultant Ross Young says that Apple will continue to test in-display Touch ID in the coming months.
If the company chooses to ditch Touch ID, it could introduce a new biometric unlocking system. In-display fingerprint readers are becoming more common on high-end smartphones. They are especially useful for people who need to unlock their device while wearing masks. And in addition to being convenient, in-display fingerprint readers also provide a reliable and fast way to unlock a phone.
Early iPhone 14 rumors indicated that Apple could put a Touch ID sensor under the display. However, Ming-Chi Kuo has since reported that Apple had pushed this technology to 2023 because it had “lower than expected progress on development.” Another possibility is that Touch ID would be integrated into the iPhone power button. This is the most likely scenario, though Apple is not expected to use Touch ID on the iPhone 14 this year.
iPhone 14 New front-facing camera
Apple’s new iPhone 14 is expected to sport an upgraded front-facing camera system and auto-focus system. According to a report from Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected industry analyst, Apple will upgrade the camera hardware and software on the iPhone 14. Kuo also claims that Apple has confirmed a supplier for the new iPhone’s front-facing camera elements. He expects the new front-facing camera to improve the quality of selfies.
The new front-facing camera module is expected to be manufactured by LG Innotek and Cowell, two South Korean suppliers. While China manufacturers had previously been considered for such camera modules, Apple has ruled them out due to quality concerns. Kuo also says that the new iPhone will feature an auto-focus system, which should improve photo quality.
The new front-facing camera on iPhone 14 models will have a wider aperture, which will let more light pass through the lens to the sensor. This will improve image quality and give Portrait mode better depth of field. It will also improve autofocus, which could improve focus during FaceTime and Zoom video calls. The current front-facing camera on iPhone 13 models has fixed focus and a smaller f/2.2 aperture.
The new front-facing camera is expected to cost about a third of the price of the primary camera on the iPhone. In comparison, the rear camera costs nearly double. It is not clear how much of the cost will be passed on to the consumer.
iPhone 14 IP68 water and dust resistance
An IP68 water and dust resistance rating means your iPhone 14 is protected against liquids and dust. It means that your iPhone 14 can survive being submerged in water for 30 minutes and not lose its performance. The IP rating is based on a scale from zero to eight. The higher the number, the more protected the phone will be.
IP ratings are the industry’s benchmark for how well a device is protected against dust and water. They range from one to six, where the first digit indicates resistance to solid objects and the second digit indicates resistance to liquids. An IP68 phone is dust and water-resistant to 1.5 meters, though Samsung advises against using the phone while swimming. However, an IP68-rated iPhone can survive up to 6 meters of water for 30 minutes without losing functionality.
Apple has been fined $12 million by an Italian judge for misleading consumers. The Italian court ruled that Apple had made misleading claims about water resistance. While IP68 means “waterproof,” it is not true under normal conditions. Its water-resistance claim only applies under controlled laboratory tests.
While iPhones with IP68 water and dust resistance rating are water and dust-resistant, the resistance varies from model to model. The iPhone 13 Pro, for example, has an IP68 water and dust resistance rating. The Galaxy S22 Ultra is another waterproof phone with an IP68 rating.
iPhone 14 New colour options
New colour options for iPhone 14 are expected to be similar to those of iPhone 12 Pro. The new devices are expected to come in Purple, Green, Blue, Black, and White. They may also be available in Gold or Silver. It’s possible that Apple could add another color that was not available on previous models, such as purple.
Black is the safest colour option. It is subtle and will appeal to many consumers. The rumoured white colour option is also a popular choice. Two different sources suggest that Apple will offer the iPhone 14 in this colour. However, these are just rumours. There is no official word yet, but the possibilities are high.
As of now, there are five colour options available for iPhone 14. The classic silver and gold colours will remain the most popular options. But Apple has added purple and blue options this year, which may raise some eyebrows. The new colours are not as popular as previous ones, but are still available. If you are considering getting a new iPhone, it’s worth checking out its colour options before buying.
iPhone 14 Pro is also rumoured to come in purple. This new colour has a gradient effect. The dummy model was shown to be much darker than the iPhone 12 purple, so it’s likely that the purple colour on the iPhone 14 Pro is a bit darker than expected. But the rumour is not official yet, and anything can happen until Apple makes an announcement.
iPhone 14 Price
The price of iPhone 14 is expected to be the same as iPhone 13 in India. The price of the iPhone 13 is currently Rs 79,999. Apple hasn’t increased the price of its iPhone in the US or India in the last two years. It may follow the same strategy in India as well. The rupee has depreciated to a historic low.
The earlier release date of the iPhone 14 will create more time for the launch event, and will give Apple one more week to sell its new devices in the fiscal fourth quarter. That’ll help Apple surpass last year’s sales record of $83 billion. Analysts are predicting that the company will make $89 billion in sales this year. The iPhone 14 Max is widely expected to be Apple’s most popular new model. However, the production process for this model has proven to be the most challenging. Compared to previous iPhone release dates, the shipments of the iPhone 14 Pro components have been three times higher than the shipments of the iPhone 14 Max components.
Moreover, Apple’s price hike could be attributed to shortages in critical components. For example, the new front-facing camera module, manufactured by LG Innotek, is three times more expensive than its predecessor. Though Apple’s prices have not been confirmed yet, the leaker’s tweet has highlighted a 15 percent price hike in the iPhone 14 range.
