What are the highlights of next year’s iPhone 14? A source close to a South Korean screen factory broke the news that the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch 14 Pro Max are expected to use a screen with a punch-hole at the top center for the front camera.
iPhone 14 Pro models will have punch-hole displays and a 48MP camera
Frankly speaking, as far as the public technology is concerned, although the 13 series has reduced the area of the notch through the rearrangement of the Face ID components, this is really doubtful, unless Apple decides to abandon the face identity technology or find related solutions under the screen.
In fact, the analysis god Guo Mingchi mentioned in March this year that Apple might adopt a punch-hole screen; but this has been overturned in the latest research report in September.
In terms of other configurations, it is said that the iPhone 14 Pro series will be equipped with a 48-megapixel main camera for the first time; support 8K video recording, upgrade the storage space to 2TB, and use titanium alloy for the cover.
After all, it is almost a year before the release of the iPhone 14 series; and the truth will gradually appear.
According to earlier rumors, the iPhone 14 series will include three smartphones. The company will not release a compact mini version of the device as demand for small smartphones has fallen short of Apple’s expectations.

Many analysts predict that the 2022 iPhones will receive the Apple A16 chipset; which will be made according to TSMC’s 3nm process technology. However, this may not happen. The Information reports that TSMC is facing production difficulties that threaten to disrupt the launch of mass production of 3nm products.
According to engineers familiar with the matter; the new 3nm processors will not be ready by the time the conventional iPhone 14 is scheduled to launch. However, TSMC is expected to start producing 3nm chips ahead of its competitors anyway. However, delays in the launch of 3nm products could result in lost profits for TSMC.
At the moment TSMC manufactures chips according to the 5nm process technology; and is also preparing to launch the N4P technology, which is an improved version of the 5nm process technology. TSMC intends to start the production of chips based on N4P technology by the beginning of the second half of 2022. However, we will for sure get more information in the few upcoming months.
