According to various reports in the media, Apple’s component suppliers have started sending out shipments of iPhone 14 models’ components, which are scheduled to be released in September.
It’s possible that the claim refers to components being transported to manufacturers such as Foxconn for the final assembly of iPhone 14 variants in the coming months, according to DigiTimes.
“Part suppliers recently began their shipments for the next-generation iPhone series to be launched later this year,” the report said.
According to rumours, significant improvements are on the way for the iPhone 14 Pro models in particular. Specifically, the notch is believed to be replaced by a new pill-shaped cutout and a hole that would house Face ID sensors and the front camera.
It is also expected that the new Pro models will feature a speedier A16 chip and an Apple-enhanced 48MP rear camera lens with 8K video recording, while the ordinary iPhone 14 models are expected to keep the A15 chip and a 12MP lens.
Apple’s latest iPhone 14 Pro models are also expected to include an always-on display, which would work with the new lock screen widgets in iOS 16.
The 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max are all likely to make up the full iPhone 14 lineup, with the 5.4-inch tiny model slated to be dropped.
Increases in RAM capacity, an improved front camera that supports focusing, and support for Wi-Fi 6E could be among the upgrades that come with the regular iPhone 14 models.
