iPhone 14 becomes iPhone 13S: Steve Jobs’ masterpiece has reached its peak, but Apple is making Max

iPhone 14 becomes iPhone 13S: Steve Jobs’ masterpiece has reached its peak, but Apple is making Max
Written by insideindyhomes

It looks like Apple’s iPhone has peaked. At least as far as the standard model is concerned. Yes, you heard here first. Breaking News!

Seriously… I know it might sound like “I’m getting hot” but before you panic, the good news is that Tim Cook & Co are masters at marketing and Apple has unparalleled brand awareness so millions of people will continue to buy… iPhone 14 But now, in the not-so-good news (leaks and rumours)...

Apple’s last (official) model was the iPhone XS, which looks exactly like the iPhone X. Since then, the company seems to have learned an important lesson in branding, so we have the iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 – despite the differences being that little visible between the latter two, the “S” model, was discontinued. Sure, we’ve had this conversation before. However, it looks like 2022 really will be “General S” is disguised For vanilla iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. On the other hand, Apple wouldn’t be if the company didn’t have a few tricks up its sleeve to lure buyers.

So let’s take a look at what suggests the iPhone 14 will be more of an “iPhone 13S” model, but also what upgrades to expect and could actually make it a viable option for older iPhone users. Maybe you’re better off with the cheaper iPhone 13 or even waiting for the iPhone 15?

The iPhone 14 will be the first flagship iPhone to reuse an old processor, but Apple will get away with it

  • iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max get a brand new A16 Bionic chip
  • iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max to reuse the same A15 Bionic processor found in the iPhone 13 range

That is Large The news anyway Poorly News for those who want the cheapest new iPhone. But! Not for the same reasons you’d expect… First of all, the A15 Bionic chip is still the fastest chip out there, even after a string of recent releases from Qualcomm and MediaTek since September 2021. So we know the “slow chip” . Dispute is not the key to this coffin.

And this is where I see Apple poised to turn things in its favor. While this is unconfirmed, I would expect Cupertino to actually use the iPhone 13 Pro chip for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max instead of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini.

In case you didn’t know, it’s technically the iPhone 13 Pro’s SoC Different and better One of the ones on the iPhone 13 because it uses an extra GPU core (disabled in the Standard Edition). While this makes almost no difference for real-world use, even when it comes to heavy-duty tasks, suffice it for Apple to say that the chip in the iPhone 14 isn’t the same as the one in the iPhone 13, and that wouldn’t be wrong .

iPhone 14: 15-year-old Steve Jobs’ creativity reaches peak: is it a real problem?

Yes and no.

While we’ve never seen a new flagship iPhone with an old chip, the year-round gains in computing power are actually not as significant as you’d think anyway. For example, the A15 Bionic chip in the iPhone 13 series is only 7-10% faster than the A14 Bionic chip in the iPhone 12 series, which itself is only 7-10% faster than its predecessor, the A13 Bionic that powers the iPhone 11 .

The biggest differences come in the manufacturing process (less is better) as the iPhone 11-iPhone 12 cycle made the jump from 7nm to 5nm, making the iPhone 12 more efficient. However, probably due to a worldwide chip shortage, the iPhone 13 had to keep the same 5nm process. But it gets even more confusing, as the iPhone 13 still manages to deliver notable efficiency gains over its predecessor thanks to larger batteries and ProMotion on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max (the latter breaking all battery life records in terms of flagship phones).

All in all, if there’s anything to worry about with the iPhone 14 processor, it’s whether this chip/phone will enjoy the same number of iOS updates as the iPhone 14 Pro running on the latest 4nm will SoC compared to the existing 5nm SoC in the iPhone 13.

We’ll know the definitive answer to this question in about five years, when Apple finally stops sending out updates for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14. However, my educated guess is that Apple will give the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max the full number of iOS updates as the iPhone 14 Pro, given that they’re from the same family of phones despite the differences in hardware.

Anyway, the important takeaways are:

  • The legacy SoC on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will still be more powerful than any other chip (non-Apple) and capable of giving you smooth performance for the next four to five years.
  • The standard iPhone (iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max), or the iPhone most people buy, has literally peaked Maximum performance – This is because Apple is trying to differentiate it from its professional siblings, something the company needs to sell.

iPhone 14: Same design as before, but new iPhone 14 Max model to the rescue

The other obvious factor that makes the iPhone 14 the iPhone 13S in my opinion is that the new 2022 model is expected to reuse the same old design we’ve seen since the iPhone 12. Yes, unlike its Pro counterparts, the humble iPhone 14 is expected to retain the reputation for evil that, while iconic, is slowly fading… Of course, Apple’s saving grace here is the all-new iPhone 14 Max model, which is expected to come in at $900 dollars will begin. Even if at first glance it doesn’t make sense that this device will replace the iPhone 13 mini, Apple is putting an end to it small Small phone attempts.

The iPhone 14 Max will have a larger 6.7-inch screen and a significantly larger battery than the regular iPhone 14, which is expected to keep its 6.1-inch screen. While the 14 Max isn’t an entirely new concept for Apple (they already have a Pro Max iPhone), it will feel like something entirely new for those who want it Pay less and get more.

Apple recognizes the demand for phones with bigger screens and bigger batteries, so you can enjoy content in more immersive ways for longer. So I have no doubt that customers will respond positively with their dollars. In fact, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the iPhone 14 Max becomes the best-selling iPhone 14 model (especially if the Pro models go up in price).

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max get new old rear camera hardware but a new 12MP selfie camera

As I want to emphasize, Apple likes to “recycle” Pro iPhones by adapting them to the new vanilla iPhone, and I don’t expect this year to be any different. When it comes to camera hardware, the iPhone 13 borrowed the exact same sensors from the 2020 iPhone 12 Pro Max, and it stands to reason that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will borrow the primary and ultra-wide cameras from the iPhone 13 Pro.

That’s right – not the iPhone 13, but the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. This is definitely good news for those looking to buy a vanilla iPhone 14 model – this device will appreciate quality camera hardware. Sure, flagship 2021, but still…The reason Apple could be more generous to its budget-conscious users is that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are getting new 48-megapixel cameras, which will be enough to outperform the cheaper models thanks to features like native 8K from the more expensive to distinguish video recording and a primary sensor Larger and more detailed images in general. Everyone wins. Allegedly.

The one exception to Apple’s hardware recycling rule is the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max selfie cameras, which are said to be getting a much-needed upgrade to a new 12-megapixel sensor with a larger f/1.9 aperture with autofocus. This helps you and your friends focus when taking your photos and videos and delivers improved quality in low light conditions.

In the end: should you get the iPhone 14… iPhone 13, or… wait for the iPhone 15?

Sure, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max stick to the same old notch, and they’re also expected to use the same A15 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 13. Again, the same notch will have the iPhone 14 Pro’s Face ID (love it or hate it) and when we’ve built an iPhone 13 Pro 8-core GPU A15 Bionic chip that will keep you going for years .

Additionally, the iPhone 13 Pro’s cameras are still amazing and fit nicely into the $800 iPhone 14. On top of that, you get a brand new selfie shooter – just like in the iPhone 14 Pro.

Thanks to the iPhone 14 Max, affordable iPhone battery life is also expected to set new records, and I’m sure millions of iPhone customers will appreciate that and vote with their credit cards.

Get an iPhone 13 instead of an iPhone 14?

For those who enjoy buying iPhones on places like eBay, 2022 will be your lucky year because you won’t be missing out on much under no circumstance I decided to get an iPhone last year.

Unless you’re new to selfie shooters and a bigger iPhone 14 Max (with a bigger battery) tempts you, there’s no reason not to pick up the iPhone 13 for $200-$400 less, depending on the offer you can find. Same chip, almost the same cameras, same design… It’s a no-brainer for those on a budget.

Skip the iPhone 14 and wait for the iPhone 15 (with USB-C)?

Oh boy. The biggest. At least in my book.

After decades of “leaks” and rumors, the iPhone 15 is now expected to transition to USB-C thanks to new European legislation (which isn’t complete yet), and that’s by far the biggest reason to wait for the 2023 model. But she keeps getting better…

According to a trustworthy publication, Ross Young, the iPhone 15 will bring the new dual-hole design (like the iPhone 14 Pro), a new processor (it could be the A16 Bionic from the iPhone 14 Pro) and of course more to be revealed Tweaks Leaks and Rumors Let’s wait and see the iPhone 14 first, but if the leaks and rumors come true, I wouldn’t mind using the iPhone 13 in case I need an urgent upgrade. If not… iPhone 15 is shaping up to be a whole different beast. I mean… USB-C?! Come here!
