Leaked Apple iPhone 14 renders showcase major design changes from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series
Apple may not have unveiled the iPhone 13 series yet, but Jon Prosser and FrontPageTech have already moved onto leaking iPhone 14 information. Evidently, the various iPhone 13 models will broadly retain the design that Apple introduced with the iPhone X, save for an extra camera or two. Hence, we doubt that Apple could continue releasing iPhones with this design next year, too.
According to Prosser, the back of the iPhone 14 will resemble the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 series, with three rear-facing cameras joined by an LED flash and a LiDAR sensor. However, Prosser asserts that the camera housing will no longer jut out from the back housing, as has been the case with recent iPhones. Instead, Apple will completely remove the camera housing and the comically large lens covers, with a flush back panel sitting within a titanium frame.
While that would be a big generational change in its own right, Prosser also claims that Apple has tweaked the iPhone's front somewhat. Reputedly, the iPhone 14 will not feature a notch, another aspect carried over from the iPhone X to the iPhone 12 and beyond. Prosser stresses that the hole-punch display may only be available on Pro models, although he clarifies that he has not seen a leaked iPhone 14 prototype, just an iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Prosser also speculates that Apple will integrate Face ID technology beneath the display, rather than adopting an in-display fingerprint scanner. He has not seen any evidence of this yet, though. On the one hand, they look more modern, with a greater screen-to-body ratio than current models. On the other hand, they do not stray too far from what people will already be used to with the iPhone X onwards. Overall, the designs presented here are a logical step for the iPhone, in our opinion.
