The announcement of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 flagship lineup is less than a month away now. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are rumored to get a redesigned display as well as support for an always-on feature. A stunning new concept recently shared on Twitter gives us a good idea of how iOS 16 will look on the upcoming iPhone.
Check out how iOS 16 will look with the redesigned display of Pro iPhones
The concept, created by Graphic Designer AR7, shows us what a Midnight iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max could look like running Apple’s next-generation software update – iOS 16.
It has been reported time and time again that Apple will ditch the notch in favor of a “hole + pill design” on the display of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The artist’s attention to detail is also impeccable as the concept even features the battery percentage graphic Apple has added to the top of the display through iOS 16 beta 5.
Adding on to this, the concept even includes the new music and podcast preview for the Lock Screen that is set to arrive with iOS 16. Users just need to tap the cover of a song or podcast while their iPhone is locked, and the preview will take over the display.
Lastly, we have the long-rumored and Always-On Display. As we have previously reported, the wallpapers Apple has released for iOS 16 not only have references to the functionality but also feature elements that support it.
Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has repeatedly stated that Apple is working on an always-on display for iPhone 14 Pro that will show information on the screen when it is locked, similar to the Apple Watch and Android smartphones. This glanceable information can include new emails, messages, or calendar information. Here’s how the artist imagines the functionality might look on the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro.
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.
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.
