Apple iPhone 14 Pro: High resolution renders show alleged final design in four colours
Jon Prosser and Ian Zelbo have collaborated again to deliver new renders of the iPhone 14 Pro. Claimed to be of the smartphone's final design, Prosser asserts that Apple will offer this year's Pro model in four colours again, at least initially. Apparently, Apple will bring across the Gold, Graphite and Silver finishes from the iPhone 13 Pro, albeit with a new violet colour replacing Sierra Blue.
It remains to be seen whether Apple will release a mid-cycle refresh as it has with the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series, though. Unsurprisingly, Prosser thinks that Apple will return to a matte glass back panel, unlike non-Pro models. Additionally, Prosser remarks that titanium sides could make an appearance on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, albeit without any certainty. Currently, Apple equips the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max with stainless steel sides, which it claims offers better scratch resistance than the aluminium equivalents on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.
As other leaks have suggested, the iPhone 14 Pro will receive a flat display with two punch holes for a front-facing camera and Face ID hardware. Supposedly, 20% slimmer bezels will give the iPhone 14 Pro a 6.12-inch display too, up from 6.06-inches in the iPhone 13 Pro. Furthermore, Prosser and Zelbo's renders show that the iPhone 14 Pro has more rounded corners than its predecessor, owing to larger radii.
While the change is subtle, it could make the iPhone 14 Pro more comfortable to hold in one hand than the iPhone 13 Pro. Currently, the entire iPhone 14 series is rumoured to launch in mid-September alongside other hardware refreshes, such as the Watch Series 8.
