While we expect big changes in the design of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the same is not true for the standard iPhone 14 or the rumored iPhone 14 Max. But Apple may only keep the current design of the base models for another year.
It depends Ross Young (a leaker with an excellent track record for display-related information), which claims that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Max will have the same screen sizes as the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max .
This suggests they’ll also get the dual-camera (and no-notch) cutouts we’ve seen in leaks for the iPhone 14 Pro series, as this design change will likely change the screen size ever so slightly.
I meant, “You can expect the 15 and 15 Max to be the same sizes as the 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max…May 10, 2022
Indeed, Young made this claim in a tweet following the one where he compared the screen sizes of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max to their predecessors, so that explains the almost imperceptible difference in size that the cutouts of the camera do. .
So if you’re bored of the notch but don’t want to dive into a Pro model, it might not be long before Apple releases a phone that’s right for you. That said, this is only one person making the claim, and it’s a very early leak, so we’d take it with a pinch of salt for now.
Analysis: Hopefully more changes will come inside as well
Moving the entire iPhone 15 lineup to a notchless design would be a big and welcome step from Apple, but the company might need to do more than that to make the base models worthwhile.
From the rumours, it almost seems that Apple can’t be bothered with the standard iPhone 14, while the iPhone 14 Max is slightly more interesting as it’s new, but has the same issues. .
One of those issues is the continued presence of the notch, but leaks also suggest that these two phones won’t even get a new chipset. So the iPhone 14 in particular could be little more than a re-released iPhone 13.
Hopefully the move to a new design – if it happens – is a sign that Apple is putting more effort into the iPhone 15. While it may still be way behind the iPhone 15 Pro, this which, according to reports, could be in line for a periscope camera (offering 5x optical zoom) and a single – rather than two – cutouts in the display.
