Some other anecdotes before the iPhone 14 event. According to BloombergMark Gorman in his book employment Newsletter, iPhone 14 Pro models will have larger batteries. This will be the second year in a row that Apple has increased battery size while improving processor performance. Additionally, the company appears to be focusing on eSIM technology straight out of the box, rather than physical SIM cards.
This is not the first time 9to5Mac Reports indicate that the iPhone 14 series will have larger batteries. In June, Twitter user shrimpwho has always been able to find rumors on Chinese social media about new Apple releases, shows a post that can confirm the battery size of the new iPhones, both regular and professional.
According to Baidu’s post, the regular iPhone 14 can feature a 3,279 mAh battery compared to the iPhone 13, 3,227 mAh. The 14 Pro can use a 3,200 mAh battery, compared to the iPhone 13 Pro, 3,095 mAh. On the other hand, the 14 Pro Max will have a slightly smaller battery, with 4,323 mAh compared to the 13 Pro Max with 4,352 mAh.
Although Gurman isn’t talking about the regular iPhone 14 models, it would be really interesting if he was right about the Pro models getting a bigger battery – something users have always wanted.
Beyond that, I was told to expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to appear slightly larger overall and include slimmer bezels. They will have bigger batteries, too.
iPhone 14 Pro features
As this is his last newsletter before the event, Gurman checks out what he expects Apple to deliver with these new iPhones. He says the regular iPhone 14 models will get “some changes in camera hardware” and that’s it. Focuses on iPhone 14 Pro versions. he is writing:
- front camera to feature autofocus for the first time;
- improved sensors for facial recognition;
- New 48MP wide-angle system;
- improved ultra-wide-angle and telephoto sensors;
- Improvements to video recording and low-light photography;
- A16 chip.
Last but not least, talk about Apple pushing eSIM technology. While it has been rumored that the company could ditch the physical SIM card slot on newer iPhone models, it’s unclear if Apple will do so with the iPhone 14 line. Gurman says:
And Apple will give the eSIM a bigger push this time around, with carriers preparing to steer users toward built-in digital SIMs rather than physical ones. In fact, Apple has considered removing the physical SIM card slot entirely starting this year or next for some models.
