Apple’s special fall 2022 event “Far Out,” is scheduled to take place on September 7. Ahead of the event, a new leak from the Chinese social media site Weibo has shared the dummy units of the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro lineup. The dummy unit shows two new blue and purple colorways.
Check out the alleged dummy units of the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro
A purple color option rumored to be coming to both the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro was first rumored earlier in August. It was reported that Apple would ditch the Pink colorway that was introduced with the iPhone 13 whereas the Pro model would ditch the popular Sierra Blue option.
Now, we have an idea of what the purple colorway is going to look like via Weibo. Unlike previous CADs which imagined a pastel purple, these dummy units feature a deeper purple. In addition to this, a darker blue can also be seen. The standard Silver, Gold, and Graphite colors are also present.
Purple only appears at certain angles.

Apple typically provides the dimensions and molds of its upcoming devices to accessory makers ahead of launch to ensure a wide variety of accessories are available following. So, dummy units are true to the size of the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro but the colorways could be different as they are not produced from the same material as the smartphone itself.
This year’s standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are set to feature the same design as their predecessor with the same A15 chip. On the other hand, the Pro models are expected to get the A16 chip, the above-mentioned pill + hole punch cutout for the display, and major camera upgrades. All models are expected to feature 6GB of RAM.and support 30W charging. As for the internal storage of the device, there are some conflicting reports about whether it will start from 128GB or 256GB, given the price hike.
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.
