The speculation is high that the release of the next premium flagship phone iPhone 14 Series, is just one or two months away. The next-generation smartphone is likely to launch in September this year.
As per the reports of 9to5Mac, the bad news is that Apple’s partners are experiencing supply problems, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. The good news is that these issues should not affect the release date.
In one of the tweets, Kuo says, “I’ve learned that recently some iPhone 14 panel and memory suppliers have experienced supply issues, but it should have a limited impact on the coming mass production of the iPhone 14 because other suppliers can fill the supply gap.”
The iPhone 14 Pro series are likely to shed the front notch to introduce a new design. However, it seems that Apple will combine a circular hole-punch cutout for the camera clubbed with a pill-shaped cutout to house major Face ID components. This feature will, unfortunately, be restricted to the Pro models, and the more affordable iPhone 14 models will continue featuring a standard notch.
The iPhone 14 Pro models may employ a titanium frame instead of a stainless steel frame, and microphone grilles and redesigned speakers may be potential addition. Apple could also sport an innovative vapor chamber thermal mechanism to keep the iPhone cool to reduce the effect of faster chips and 5G connectivity.
Rumors suggest that the models are expected to continue with the same A15 chip that was integrated into the iPhone 13 series, while the iPhone 14 Pro models receive an upgraded A16 chip. This can be the first time that the Pro iPhone models receive a faster chip. However, this move by Apple to cut down on expenses can be caused due to ongoing supply chain issues.
