Now that Apple has already closed the design of this year’s iPhone, the iPhone 14, it is the busiest time for filter feeders. At 9to5Mac they have discovered interesting information about these new iPhones, such as the fact that the Pro models will have a higher screen due to the redesign that Apple is working on.
Without mini and with somewhat larger Pro models
Although some of the leaks published today by 9to5mac had already appeared in the past, the truth is that “verifying” this kind of information is always interesting, especially after a considerable amount of time. In addition, the publication provides some details that we did not know until now.
According to 9to5Mac, this year’s iPhone 14 they will abandon the mini model. The iPhone 14 will arrive in two sizes, code-named D27 and D28, which correspond to 6.1 and 6.7 inches respectively. For its part, the iPhone 14 Pro, which in code we will call D73 and D74, will have a slightly longer size to accommodate the new notch with a stripe and dot design.
We would therefore be facing an iPhone 14, an iPhone 14 Max, an iPhone 14 Pro and an iPhone 14 Max. Thanks to this we can choose the screen size that most interests us without having to opt for a model with better specifications.
In parallel, 9to5Mac claims to have been able to verify that, as Ming-Chi Kuo said, we will see two models with an A15 Bionic chip. One that could arrive as “A15X”. Furthermore, all models are expected to have 6 GB of RAM.
Satellite communication for emergencies
A little before the launch of the iPhone 13, there were rumors that Apple was working on a satellite communication system. A feature that, although it was initially considered as one more communication channel, was later clarified that it would be reserved only for emergencies in which the phone was out of any coverage.
This feature never made it to the iPhone 13s, but 9to5Mac sources say Apple is still working on it. For now We do not know if this feature will reach the iPhone 14but it seems that the company already has prototypes capable of sending text messages through satellite communication.
The project, known internally by the name of “Stewie” would open the doors so that, in an emergency, any iPhone could request help from anywhere in the world. A resource designed so that it never has to be used, but which is undoubtedly interesting to add to a device with the ability, among others, to automatically notify rescue services in case of detecting a fall or strong blow.
With this new information, plus what we already think we know about the future iPhone 14, it seems clear that we are facing a generation that will bring interesting changes. Changes in strategy, size, notch and probably many more, although we will have to wait until the fall to find out.
