The iPhone 14 in a Nutshell: All the Rumors Summarized

We're still months away from the launch of the iPhone 14 models, which we're expecting in September 2022, but we've already heard enough rumors about the new devices that we have a clear picture of what to expect.


Rumors for upcoming products can sometimes be hard to follow, so we thought we'd do an at-a-glance rumor summary for the ‌iPhone 14‌ so our readers can get a quick overview of what we might see without having to delve into tons of reading. We've separated the info into ‌iPhone 14‌ and iPhone 14 Pro lists, as these models are expected to be quite different in 2022.

iPhone 14 Pro Models

  • 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes
  • No notch, under display Face ID hardware
  • Hole-punch cutout for front-facing camera
  • 120Hz ProMotion display
  • Triple-lens camera
  • 48-megapixel wide-angle lens
  • Titanium chassis possible
  • iPhone 13 flat-edged design
  • 8GB RAM
  • Less/no camera bump possible
  • Faster 5nm A16 chip
  • Faster 5G
  • Satellite-based emergency features
  • WiFi 6E

iPhone 14 Models

  • 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes (no 5.4-inch)
  • Notch and standard Face ID hardware
  • Likely no ProMotion, but possible
  • Dual-lens camera setup
  • Less/no camera bump possible
  • Aluminum chassis
  • ‌iPhone 13‌ flat-edged design
  • 6GB RAM
  • Faster 5nm A16 chip
  • Faster 5G
  • Satellite-based emergency features
  • WiFi 6E

Note that these are early rumors, and some of these features might not pan out or might have to be scrapped if there are manufacturing issues. What we get in September might ultimately look different than what we're expecting in December, but in past years, most early iPhone rumors we've heard have turned out to be accurate.

If you want to read more about the ‌iPhone 14‌, we have an in-depth roundup that's regularly updated with all of the new rumors.

Titanium for weight reduction on the pro, then make it thicker with a bigger battery for no camera bump might make this a worthy a year over year upgrade.

2022 is going to be a big year. Glad titanium is taking over a stainless steel frame. Everyone should be expecting or thinking to upgrade to the iPhone 14. Let’s go!!!

Mona Lisa approves it.

?Please No Camera Bump ? Please No Notch ? Please Jet Black Colorway ?
I really hope Apple brings Matte black option in 2022. It’s long over due.

iPhone 7 Plus max color pattern vibes.
