But one way Apple could justify a price hike for the iPhone 14 Pro at least, could be a new entry-level storage tier. According to some rumors, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max will start at 256GB storage space not 128GB.
However, this iPhone 14 Pro storage upgrade has been shot down in a report from Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu, who claims that Apple will keep the storage the same as with Apple. iPhone 13 Prowhich means sticking with 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.
Camera upgrades are all well and good, but one of the worrying rumors circulating is how the iPhone 14 range will be more expensive than the iPhone 13 rangewith the Pro phone will go up $100.
But market intelligence firm TrendForce (opens in a new tab) had predicted that the price spike would be less severe, with a $50 price increase instead. Supposedly, this will be a means for Apple to be more careful with prices when global inflation is on the rise. We’re not sure how much we bought for it, but we’d prefer no price hikes at all, especially if the standard iPhone 14 hasn’t changed much.
Come in! Rumors of the new iPhone 14 Pro. This time is a picture of what is claimed iPhone 14 Pro case on top of iPhone 14 Prowith a big take because the camera lenses of the next generation of iPhones could be bigger than the current Pro phones.
What does this mean in practical terms? A bigger lens can let in more light and that means more detail is captured by the phone’s camera. With iPhone 14 Pro is already expected to get a 48MP main cameralet in more light and improve low light photography too, can see it above us best camera phone list; although we have to go through some testing before drawing any conclusions.
As for the Apple Watch 8 itself, we weren’t expecting to see a number of major changes, but the Pro model has been tipped.
And looking at some photos of the allegedly leaked case, it seems Apple Watch 8 Pro will be a very sturdy smartwatch capable of withstanding the elements and tough outdoor activities while still offering access to the range watch OS 9 feature. That’s possible thanks to the extra buttons and titanium construction by default.
Moving away from the iPhone, we expect to see at least two new Apple Watch models on Wednesday. But there’s also Apple Watch SE 2 that may appear.
If you’re wondering if you should be ready to buy an iPhone 14 when it launches, or if you should wait 12 months and get your hands on it iPhone 15then telephone writer Richard Priday has chewed on iPhone 14 vs iPhone 15.
It looks like the iPhone 14 Pro will be the phone to get. But if you are in iPhone 13 ProYou might want to consider waiting as the iPhone 2023 model could bring some big changes, like USB-C connectivity and a periscope camera.
However, we have now heard of a new variation on this theme — namely that The A15 chip in iPhone 14 will be an enhanced version.
This is according to Wall Street Journal (opens in a new tab), citing “people familiar with the plan.” There’s no indication how the A15 will be upgraded — but we suspect it will offer slightly higher performance than the A15. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Maxwhich offers one additional GPU core compared to the A15 used in the base iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
The dual chip approach is one we’ve heard a lot about. For example, Mark Gurman of Bloomberg also tipped about Regular iPhone 14 to stick with A15while the Pro model gets an upgrade.
On the one hand, this will be disappointing — Apple almost always puts new chips in new phones. But on the other hand, you could argue that The A15 Bionic is so powerful that having it on an iPhone 14 isn’t a bad thing by the way. And if the A15 version used is more powerful than the iPhone 13, there’s no longer any reason to worry.
One of the latest rumors to surface ahead of Apple’s event concerns the battery upgrade for iPhone 14 Pro range.
That’s according to well-connected Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who wrote in his piece Newsletter Turn on (opens in a new tab) that “beyond the notch, I was told to expect the iPhone 14 Pro model to appear slightly larger overall and include slimmer bezels. They will have bigger batteries too.”
