- About a week from now, Apple will announce the new iPhone series at the “Far Out” event.
- iPhone 14 series will certainly have many new features, but there are also many things that have been rumored for a long time, but will not appear on this year’s iPhone version because Apple will reserve them for future iPhone generations a few years later.
- The iPhone 14 will have the usual ports, but that doesn’t include USB-C.
- According to many sources, it was not until the iPhone 15 that Apple made the transition to USB-C, before the European Union’s requirement took effect in 2024.
- Not only iPhone, but Apple also had to switch to USB-C for AirPods headphones.
- Today, USB-C has become extremely popular and many Apple devices also use this charging port,
- Therefore, an iPhone with a USB-C port to simplify accessories is what many iPhone users are looking for
IPHONE 14 WILL NOT HAVE A “PORTLESS” DESIGN
- Rumors of an iPhone with a portless or “holeless” design have been around for a long time.
- Some information even suggested that Apple would apply this design on the iPhone 13, the results are known to everyone.
- While this could be a way for Apple to bypass the European Union’s USB-C requirement,
- but a portless iPhone is probably still very inconvenient. That won’t happen this year, and may never happen
NO CAMERA BELOW THE SCREEN
- iPhone 14 Pro is expected to remove the notch and have a new “i” Face ID cluster design, while the iPhone 14 and 14 Max retain the old design.
- By 2023 with the iPhone 15, all new iPhone models will have the same design, but every source indicates that an iPhone with a hidden camera like the Galaxy Z Fold will not appear in the near future.
IPHONE 14 FLASHING SCREEN
- While Samsung is already in the fourth generation of its foldable smartphone lineup, it doesn’t seem like Apple is in a hurry to get into this game.
- Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo first predicted a foldable iPhone would appear “as early as 2024”, but then pushed his prediction to 2025.
- When Apple announced it would hold an event on September 7, people began to guess what “Far Out” meant.
- The invitation shows a constellation that makes up the Apple logo.
- While this may be referring to the periscope camera, it is more likely that Apple is hinting at an astrophotography mode.
- In fact, a periscope camera has been rumored to be on the iPhone, but that’s the iPhone 15.
- According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the periscope camera will first appear on the iPhone 15 Pro Max, while the iPhone 15 Pro will retain the telephoto lens.
