Apple’s iPhone 14, which is expected to arrive between September and October this year, could include an important new model: the iPhone 14 Max.
A recently discovered image of four milled aluminum blocks in the designs of four potential iPhone 14 models has experts guessing at the iPhone 14 models. iPhone (first introduced with the iPhone 12) is unmistakable.
Besides what appear to be two very important camera modules on the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max and 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro models, there’s a notable addition, suggests Apple Insider, who spotted a published leak by Quick Review Lab on Chinese. Weibo social media platform.
Instead of a single-ended 5.4-inch iPhone 14 mini model (it’s long been said that the mini is on the way out), there’s a new 6.7-inch model – the iPhone 14 Max. It’s notable not only for being the same size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but for sharing a dual-camera mod system with the iPhone 14, and we’ve been hearing about it for a few months now.
Granted, we’re living in the gap between the Apple iPhone 13 in our hands and the iPhone 14 we expect, filling it with rumors fueled by apparent design and manufacturing leaks. In other words, we should take these rumors with a big grain of salt.
Still, the possible existence of a big-screen iPhone 14 Max could mean an exciting new option for budget-conscious iPhone fans. After all, Apple has now shown a propensity to push its best display and top-tier processor across all of its iPhone models, and use things like camera array, storage, and memory to adjust prices.
A 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max could, price-wise, fall between the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro, while still offering, with the large screen, a bit of what you can get at the top end.
Is bigger better?
Ask consumers and you’ll hear a consistent story: They like their phone great. The flagship standard on iPhones and Android are devices 6.5 inches or larger. The problem with big-screen phones is that they usually come at an equally high price.
An iPhone 14 Max could be just what your wallet ordered. Especially if Apple doesn’t skimp in other areas.
It would be a shame, however, if the addition of this larger entry-level device means the end of the iPhone 14 Mini. Apple’s commendable mini-line is the latest iPhone to respect those with small hands and perhaps small-screen aspirations too.
Yes, we can glean a lot from a collection of aluminum blocks, especially when we are so desperate for any kind of information about Apple’s iPhone 14 plans. As always, none of this is set in stone or even sand. As the iPhone launches, we could be looking at four new handsets that look a lot like the current iPhone 13 lineup – and laugh at how we were once misled by metal bricks.
