Rumor | iPhones with upgraded titanium frames are coming, but not until 2022

iPhones that finally upgrade to 120Hz displays are thought to debut in 2021. However, their successors might have even more compelling upgrades, a step up to the incorporation of titanium in the Pro models included. JP Morgan Chase is now reportedly solidly behind this idea, and believes it will contribute to a bumper year in revenue for Apple's mobile division.

The investment consultancy JP Morgan Chase (China Division) has reportedly thrown its weight behind an upcoming generation of iPhones, asserting that they will start another "supercycle" due to upgrades that will rival the upgrade to 5G seen in the 12 series. However, the devices in question are to be of the "14" vein of 2022, not the 13 (or possibly 12s) line of the coming fourth quarter (4Q2021).

The firm reportedly now believes that these iPhones 14 are to be the ones to launch with a hotly-anticipated feature: premium builds that integrate titanium, also currently seen in some Watch variants. Then again, there is apparently some confusion as to where this high-end material will be found: in the phones' internal mid-frames, external frames or both.

However, JP Morgan Chase seems clearer on the point that the upgrade will be seen in the iPhone 14 Pro variants, the predecessors of which do indeed sport stainless-steel frames as opposed to the aluminum of the 12 or 12 Mini. On that note, the company may have reiterated claims that this experimental compact version will indeed be phased out by 2022.

Therefore, these are potentially bullish indicators for a range of Apple devices that are not even in production yet - if less encouraging in terms of their potential price-tags. On the other hand, the OEM itself is allegedly more than reasonably confident in demand for its impending 2021 line-up, having ordered up to 90 million units thus far, as well as up to 100 million of the A15 Bionic platforms on which they are to be based.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
