Not long ago, Apple just held a spring conference. So we have to wait for the next batch of Apple products in autumn. At this event, the Cupertino-based company will uncover the long-awaited iPhone 14 series. But it seems that Tim Cooks and his company will make some changes in the product line planning of this year’s iPhone series.
iPhone 14 Series Screens
Particularly, the company is going to cancel the iPhone mini model. Other than that, the two entry-level models will get some changes as well. For instance, the two basic iPhone 14 models will sport 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens. As a low-cost large-screen model, they will retain the small bangs on the screen. There will be a large-screen iPhone 14 Max.
Moreover, the Pro version will differ from the previous models a lot. For the first time, the company will cancel the notch and adopt the punch-hole design.
Although it is still early rumors, almost all the news from the supply chain points to this solution. The recently exposed iPhone 14 Pro CAD renders confirmed these rumors.
It is worth noting that according to the latest information, the iPhone 14 series will use OLED panels that support LTPO (low-temperature polycrystalline oxide) technology. However, it will still be exclusive to the two high-end versions of the iPhone 14 Pro. This means that the LTPO adaptive refresh rate screens will not be available on the two lower-end products of the iPhone 14 series.

More importantly, the iPhone 14 series may also continue to miss the high refresh rate. It’s related to LTPO. We mean the high refresh rate without LTPO may continue to stretch the iPhone 14’s battery life. So there is every reason to think that Apple might continue supporting a 60Hz low refresh rate on the low-end models.
iPhone 14 Hardware
Every Apple fan knows that the main advantage of Apple products is that their hardware and software are created for each other. This is the reason why they work so smoothly and unlike Android phones, they don’t need large-capacity memories and other hardware. In this regard, the upcoming models will be the company’s first iPhones to use 8GB memory. This sounds a bit odd because the Android phones come with 20GB and larger RAMs. Unfortunately, the next-gen Apple A16 Bionic chip will be present only on the higher models.
Anyway, the iPhone 14 is considered to be the most anticipated smartphone of 2022. And Apple has to work hard to meet customers’ expectations. On the other hand, whatever Apple does, it’s welcomed with applause.
