Apple’s next flagship iPhone 14 lineup could feature new purple color options for both the standard and the Pro models. In addition, the lineup is rumored to support 30W charging, according to a leaker.
Leaker reveals new tidbits about upcoming iPhone 14 lineup
As per anonymous Twitter user Jioriku, the Cupertino tech giant will launch a new purple colorway for the iPhone 14. The standard model will ditch the Pink colorway that was introduced with the iPhone 13 whereas the Pro model will ditch the popular Sierra Blue option. Other colors set to be offered for the lineup include “Green, Purple, Silver, Gold, and Graphite,” the leaker says. The standard iPhone 14 will also be available in the (PRODUCT)RED version.
The same leaker goes on to say that the lineup will support 30W charging for the first time. However, customers will likely have to buy a new 30W charger as Apple is unlikely to include it in the box. The 30W charging speed will also drop down to 25-27W after the first bit of the charge cycle.
Also, note that the 30W charging speed only applies to wired charging. Wireless and MagSafe charging will still see limited speeds at 7.5W and 15W, respectively.
On the topic of MagSafe, the leaker says that the MagSafe magnets in this year’s iPhones will be stronger and the new MagSafe Battery case will be larger and subsequently, heavier.
As for other expected features, we know that this year’s standard and Pro iPhone models will have some key differences. The standard iPhone 14 model is set to feature the same design as its predecessor with the same A15 chip. On the other hand, the Pro models are expected to get the A16 chip, a new pill + hole punch cutout for the display, major camera upgrades as well as rumored features like an always-on display. All models are expected to feature 6GB of RAM.
In addition to this, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have reported that the Pro models will feature an upgraded front camera. As revealed by Kuo, the front camera will feature autofocus which will offer sharper images and improved picture quality.
Furthermore, the camera will also have a 6-element lens instead of a 5-element lens, which will also add to the image quality. The rear-end camera for the Pro models will be upgraded to 48MP which will enable 8K video recording.
