Going by several leaks from sources with insider information, it seems that Apple could soon be launching iPhone 14. This smartphone will have four variants—iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The almost sheer number of the variants isn’t surprising because Apple has been releasing each subsequent iPhone with at least three different choices. iPhone 6 came in three varieties—iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Plus.
The same can will be for iPhone 12, which came in four choices— iPhone 12 Mini, followed by iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pr Max, respectively.
We expect Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, to surprise us with the iPhone 13 successor in September, probably ahead of the Google Pixel 7 launch.
Even though iPhone 14 could come with a disappointingly high price tag that could easily surpass $1000, you can be sure that this smartphone will offer lots of goodies in return. With lots of cool features, there’s no denying the fact that it will deliver a seamless smartphone experience no other iPhone ever has.
Apple hasn’t revealed anything about the phone yet, but we’ve gathered a little intel about some cool features of this phone from sources seemingly with insider information. Speaking of which, here are some of those features;
Top Features To Lookout in Apple iPhone 14

1. An Upgraded Display
Rumor has it that the display in these two new models has significantly improved from the previous ones. For example, it will feature the LTPO 2.0 OLED panel with a maximum refresh rate of 120Hz.
Note that your display’s refresh rate refers to the number of times it can refresh an image per second. Notably, all iPhone models, including iPhone X, 8, 8S, 7, 7Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 6 Plus, and 6, have a display refresh rate of up to 60Hz. That means an iPhone refreshes an image sixty times per second.
The improvement in the refresh rate on iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will ensure a smoother-looking screen that doesn’t strain your eyes even at maximum brightness levels. But that’s not all. The technology will also adjust the refresh rate to 1Hz whenever a high refresh rate is not needed, e.g., when the screen displays a static image. It will help prolong the battery life of these smartphones.
Additionally, the display will come with an “Always-On-Display” or “AoD” that some Apple gadgets like the Apple Watch Series 5 and many Android phones have had for years.
AoD enables a few pixels on your screen to light up when the screen is off as an alert during incoming calls, notifications, and so on. When turned on, the feature will ensure that a significant portion of your screen remains off such that only the mentioned pixels illuminate your screen so you can see new information. It will be a great way to save power and prolong your battery life.
2. An Improved Camera

Notably, iPhone 14 comes with a dual-camera setup comprising two cameras—a primary camera and a secondary camera, working together as a single unit. Each camera is 12 megapixels.
We can see a slight deviation from the iPhone 13, which came with a single camera setup. It consists of only one primary camera, a selfie, and a rear camera. The camera uses a 12-megapixel lens in selfie mode to capture decent-quality photos. The rear mode employs a 12 + 12 megapixels lens to take even better pictures.
However, iPhone 14 may outshine it in certain camera applications. Some experts predict that the upcoming smartphone’s dual-camera system will be very useful. For example, pictures of distant objects, photos that show the entire person or object with their surroundings, and pictures that capture a person’s personality using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses.
However, Apple seems to have retained the external look of the iPhone 13’s camera system in the iPhone 14. Like the former, the latter will feature three flush camera openings on the upper left side of the back.
Other Features Of iPhone 14 May Not Be New
We expect to see a few exciting improvements in iPhone 14 if the leaks turn out authentic. At the same time, we look forward to getting slightly disappointed by this upcoming iPhone model because many of its features won’t be any different from iPhone 13’s.
For example, the processor, RAM, and OS will still be Apple A15 Bionic, 4GB, and iOS v15, all found in its predecessor. Keeping these feature similarities in mind, would it be worth spending the extra hundred dollars on upgrading to iPhone 14 from 13 when it hits the market?
