The iPhone 14
launch event is now less than a month away, assuming yesterday’s leak about an earlier-than-expected reveal
is legit. It is pretty much established that the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will ditch the notch
as well as the primary 12MP camera
. Videos and images of an iPhone 14 Pro Max dummy unit visualize what the final product will look like.

), the images and video clip compare the design of the iPhone 14 Pro Max to the iPhone 13 Pro Max
. Although the phones have the same general design, two significant changes have been made: the iPhone 14 Pro Max has pill-shaped and hole cutouts for the Face ID tech and the front camera instead of a notch and it also has a thicker camera bump.
This fits with the rumors we have been hearing. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are highly likely to swap out the 12MP main sensor for a 48MP camera and the new module could be 57 percent larger
than the module it’s replacing. This will result in a bigger camera island
Per previously leaked schematics
, the camera bulge will grow in thickness from 3.60mm to 4.17mm, and the size of the bump may also expand nearly 5 percent in each direction, which will result in an increase in the width from 35.01mm to 36.73mm and in height from 36.24mm to 38.21mm.
The new sensor will theoretically allow for brighter and more detailed photos and will also enable 8K video recording. These improvements could help the iPhone 14 Pro Max become the best camera phone of 2022

The phone itself might also be a little thicker and wider
than the outgoing model. Per one leak, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a width of 78.78mm, whereas the iPhone 13 Pro Max is 78.1mm wide. The phone is rumored to have a thickness of 7.85mm (without the camera bump), which would make it thicker than the 7.65mm thick iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will allegedly be powered by the new 5nm A16 Bionic chip. The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone Max will presumably stick with the A15 Bionic. The standard models are also likely to retain the 12MP main camera as well as the notch.
The regular models will reportedly be available in
Green, Purple, Blue, Black, White, and Red hues, and the Pros will come in Green, Purple, Silver, Gold, and Graphite.
It was previously believed that the iPhone 14 family would be introduced on September 13, but it now looks like they will be announced on September 6 and go on sale on September 16.
