A source on Weibo, a Chinese social media network, claims that Apple is going to introduce the new iPhone 14 series in a new color option, purple and the company has also redesigned the flash in the rear camera module.
In 2021, Apple introduced iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in purple but did not expand the color option to iPhone 12 Pro models. The company also skipped the purple color option for iPhone 13 series but introduced a new green color across the series with slight variation in the color’s richness for base and Pro models.
iPhone 14 series will have a bigger flash in the rear camera system
According to the source, the iPhone 14 base models will be available in white, blue, black, red, and purple. The iPhone 14 Pro models will be available in gold, silver, white graphite, and purple. The new purple color will shift tone as per the lighting conditions.
Furthermore, it is claimed that Apple will replace the currently used dual circle flash with a new single and larger flash which is described as “a small circle in a big circle”.
AppleTrack, the publisher that spotted the rumor, believes that the new color option will be good addition but is not sure about the new flash claim.
Purple for all models, at launch, is going to be a big hit. I remember when Apple launched the purple iPhone 12 in April 2021, so many folks wanted it! But they had already bought one of the other colors months earlier. Based on the way it is described in the Weibo post, it sounds pretty stunning. If it looks as good as it sounds, I’m in. As for the flash change…it’s unclear what that means right now.
Recently, it has been reported that iPhone 14 series will feature an upgraded front camera with improved autofocus to take better pictures in selfie or portrait mode and for improved video calling and will not include a 5.4-inch mini model, instead, the new series will have two 6.1-inch models and two 6.7-inch models.
The iPhone 14 Pro models are rumored to feature a 48MP Wide camera with a 21% larger camera sensor, redesigned “Pill+Hole” notch, and a faster USB 3.0 Lightning connector.
