Expectations for the new generation iPhone
- Up to now, there have been a lot of speculations and surely everyone has their own predictions and expectations about it.
- In my opinion, this year the new iPhone will not have too many breakthroughs, but it will be enough for us to be surprised, surprised, and eagerly await.
- What are those breakthroughs, I would like to share with you the predictions and expectations about the new iPhone generation from my personal point of view below.
Name and size iphone 2022
- This year, perhaps Apple will remove the mini version, so the new iPhone series will have one more version and there have been quite a few rumors that the name of this version is iPhone Max,
- but in my opinion with the same configuration as the iPhone 14, it usually only has a larger screen, so calling it iPhone 14 Plus would be more reasonable,
- The remaining versions have the same name as their predecessors, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, respectively.
- With this change, it can be seen that Apple has divided the new iPhone series into two segments, standard and Pro.
- From here on I will call iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus the standard series, and iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max the Pro series.
- The size is still the same as its predecessor, which is 6.1 inches for iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7 inches for iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Design iphone 2022
- Almost the same as the iPhone 13, but there will be three changes in my opinion that are very worthwhile.
- The notch will be smaller in the standard line, and in the Pro series will be gone, but instead will be a horizontal i cluster with a long part similar to a pill, which is the selfie camera cluster, flash and the remaining round dots. is the FaceID sensor cluster.
- However, when the screen is bright, this i cluster will look almost like a seamless pill because the middle part also displays black and is responsible for displaying the operating status of the camera, microphone and announcement of some other tasks. .
- This is also a sign that gives us hope for an iPhone with a true edge-to-edge screen in the not too distant future.
- The camera cluster on the back will be designed to sink in more,
- Therefore, the device is also a bit thicker but in return the back is more beautiful.
- The fingerprint sensor aka Touch ID will return and be hidden under the screen but only on the Pro series.
- It’s a bit of a pity that the bezel remains the same, still aluminum for the standard series and stainless steel for the Pro series. But I still expect the iPhone Pro Max version to have a titanium frame, while the standard series does not. with notch and Touch ID
Color iphone 2022
With the standard line, there are up to six colors to choose from: red, black, white, navy, mint green and purple.
The Pro series only comes in five colors: graphite, gold, silver, sierra blue and purple.
- So the whole series is purple, maybe this will be the main color this year,
- Therefore, it is also taken care of with special effects when it is possible to change the color depending on the lighting conditions, as Apple did with the sierra blue version of the iPhone 13 Pro.
iPhone screen 2022
- Still using Super Retina XDR screen with ProMotion technology, but using a new version of OLED panel with upgrades such as:
- Standard line, refresh rate raised to 90Hz and maximum brightness of 1000 nits,
- while the Pro version is slightly better with a 120Hz refresh rate and a maximum brightness of 1200 nits.
- However, the resolution remains the same 2532×1170 Pixels for the 6.1-inch version and 2778×1284 Pixels for the 6.7-inch version.
- The screen border in the Pro series will be smaller than its predecessor.
- An indispensable component to increase durability and better protect the screen is the Ceramic Shield glass that will also be upgraded in this new series.
- Regarding the screen, I only expect the 120Hz refresh rate to be supported on the standard line, not just for the Pro series.
Camera iphone 2022
The front camera on all versions has a resolution of 12MP, an aperture of f / 2.2 and will also integrate the same technologies as on the iPhone 13 but be better upgraded, the difference is only in the rear camera cluster. .
With the standard line, the camera cluster will include:
Wide-angle camera: 12MP resolution, f/1.5 aperture, support PDAF phase-detection focus technology,
OIS anti-shake technology.
Super wide-angle camera: 12MP resolution, f / 1.8 aperture, wide angle up to 120 degrees
- The Pro line will include:
- Wide-angle camera: 48MP resolution, f/1.9 aperture, support PDAF phase-detection focus technology,
- OIS anti-shake technology.
- Super wide-angle camera: 12MP resolution, f/2.2 aperture, wide angle up to 120 degrees.
- Telephoto camera: 12MP resolution, f/2.8 aperture.
- With the significant camera upgrade in the Pro version, it’s not uncommon for it to be able to record 8K videos.
- In this section, it is expected that the standard line will be upgraded to 48MP main camera and can record 8K videos like the Pro version.
iPhone battery 2022
- iPhone 14 will only slightly upgrade battery capacity in most versions,
- However, there is no need to worry because there will be new energy optimization technologies that will significantly increase usage time,
- The charging technology is also improved to help reduce the charging time quite a bit.
- MagSafe charger will be upgraded with a magnet ring with strong suction for better grip and a few other improvements to be able to support charging up to 30W.
- The Lightning port will also get an upgrade in connection speed and also support charging up to 30W.
- The detailed specifications of the battery capacity on the versions will be 3,279mAh for iPhone 14, 4325mAh for iPhone 14 Plus, 3200mAh for iPhone 14 Pro and 4323mAh for iPhone 14 Pro Max, respectively.
- But I still expect the Pro Max version to have a 5000mAh battery.
iPhone 2022 performance and connectivity
- This is the first year that Apple uses two types of chips for the new iPhone series, in which the standard line still uses the A15 Bionic chip manufactured on TSMC’s 5nm process, and the Pro series is equipped with the A16 Bionic chip manufactured. on TSMC’s 4nm process.
- The new iPhone series will all be equipped with 6GB of RAM, but like the chip, the standard line will still use LPDDR4X RAM, while the Pro series will use the latest version of LPDDR5 RAM.
- The memory capacity options remain the same as 128GB / 256GB / 512GB / 1TB, but in the Pro series there will be no 128GB option.
- Supporting the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard with a high-speed 6GHz band, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 5G modem is manufactured on TSMC’s 6nm process with a smaller size and more energy efficiency.
- As the initial images on the invitation to the upcoming Apple event, we can fully expect the iPhone 14 generation to have breakthroughs related to the universe and in my opinion, one of them is Connectivity. satellite.
- With this part, I expect the Pro series will have 8GB of RAM, especially the iPhone 14 Pro Max version uses the M1 chip and the standard series also uses the new A16 Bionic chip.
iPhone software 2022
- The official iOS 16 will be released, but there will not be many breakthroughs, only upgrading the old features that were available in most of the beta, fixing some bugs, improving performance and stability.
- The only bright spot is probably the Always-on Display feature, also known as the always-on screen,
- with this feature the phone will always display information such as clock, weather, calendar
- some basic notifications even when the screen is turned off, but still ensure optimal battery consumption at the lowest level and for this new feature to work effectively, the lock screen will also be improved and added. many new options.
- Unfortunately, this feature is only available on the pro series.
- However, I still expect the Always-on Display feature to also be available on the standard line.
Selling price of iphone 14
- This year Apple is quite favoring the Pro version with most of the valuable upgrades available on this version, so the price will probably increase by $ 100 compared to last year,
- However, the standard version with quite faint upgrades still retains the old price.
- Prices are respectively:
- iPhone 14 – From $799
- iPhone 14 Plus – From $899
- iPhone 14 Pro – From 1099 USD
- iPhone 14 Pro Max – From 1199 USD
