The iPhone 14 may adopt a radical new design (compared to the iPhone 13), but that doesn't mean Apple is going to rest on big new things for what comes after that handset. According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple is still planning on introducing an iPhone with under-display Touch ID. And, what's more, the company's first foldable iPhone is still on the way, too.
As is par for the course, now that the newest iPhone is officially official, it's all about what's coming next. The cycle never dies! And today, legendary analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is hoping to keep the ball rolling at least for a bit longer. And this time, it's all about the display and camera in a future Apple-branded smartphone.
It wasn't too long ago that, every other year, we'd get an "S" variant for Apple's iPhone. It was a very, very obvious way to tell the world that this was an "iterative" update. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you. Not by any means. But, now, at a glance, it would appear that Apple's moved away from that plan of attack.
Now that the iPhon 13 lineup is officially official, the rumor mill can switch gears and really focus in on what's coming next. Like the iPhone 14, for instance. And sure enough, we've got a new report that aims to shed some light on what Apple may bring to the displays of its future handsets.
The rumor mill still has some time to suss out a few more details regarding the iPhone 13 lineup. After all, those devices won't be announced until September 14. But, with less than a week to go before new iPhones are unveiled, a new report looks farther into the future. At what comes next.
Apple's been predicted to launch a pro-branded titanium iPhone 14 in 2022 sporting a lighter, stronger titanium alloy frame than the current stainless steel frames used for the pro models.
One of the features that Apple has yet to add to its flagship iPhones is a faster display refresh rate. There have been rumors swirling around for quite some time the company is close to doing it. And maybe this year will be the year. But it won't be until 2022 that the entirety of the new lineup boasts the feature.
The iPhone 14 Pro and the flagship iPhone 14 Pro Max, both coming as part of Apple's handset lineup in 2022, have been predicted to provide major upgrades in the camera department.
According to a new research note from TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the 2021 iPhone models will come in the same four sizes as the current iPhone 12 lineup, with the Pro models bringing significant upgrades to the ultra-wide cameras.
