Rumors say Apple's 2022 "Pro" iPhones will feature a notch-less display with a hole-punch camera, a faster A16 chip, and more.

Apple releases new iPhone models every fall, and 2022 will be no exception. Four new iPhones in 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes are expected. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be normal, more cheap variants, while the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be higher-end "Pro" editions.

We have all the details on the higher-end iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max in this roundup, and you can also check out our iPhone 14 rumor roundup for a thorough review of all four iPhone models, including the more affordable ones.

In 2022, we can expect a 6.1-inch "iPhone 14 Pro" and a 6.7-inch "iPhone 14 Pro Max," similar to the iPhone 13 Pro series. Because Apple is adding improvements to the Face ID camera, rumors claim there may be some big design alterations between the iPhone 14 Pro versions and the normal iPhone 14 models.

The iPhone 14 Pro variants are said to include two display cuts instead of a notch. The Face ID dot projector and other Face ID components will be housed in a pill-shaped cutout, while the front-facing camera will be housed in a circular cutout. The regular notch is expected to remain on non-Pro versions.

The iPhone 14 Pro models could have a titanium chassis, which would be a step up from the iPhone 13 Pro's stainless steel chassis. The iPhone 14 Pro would also be distinguished from the iPhone 14 variants, which are believed to retain an aluminum chassis.

The camera on the iPhone 14 Pro models will be improved. Apple is anticipated to release a device with a 48-megapixel camera and 8K video recording capability. There could also be some telephoto lens enhancements, as well as an improved Ultra-Wide camera. 

The 48-megapixel Wide camera, telephoto lens upgrades, and LiDAR Scanner will all be reserved for Pro users. All versions could get an enhanced front-facing camera with a larger aperture and focusing capabilities.

In addition to camera enhancements and notch modifications that will not be available on the iPhone 14, speculations say that the iPhone 14 Pro models will receive an improved A16 chip, while the non-Pro models will continue to use the A15 chip seen in the current iPhone 13 lineup. 

If this occurs, it will be the first time Apple has included a speedier processor in a Pro iPhone model. Both basic and Pro iPhones have previously used the same processor.

Apple is likely to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon X65 5G chip, which is the world's first 10-gigabit 5G modem with higher speeds and improved connectivity. 

Along with the X65, Apple is likely to unveil new satellite-based emergency features that will allow users to send texts in an emergency and report accidents even if they are not connected to the internet.

For select iPhone 14 models, Apple is removing the notch, and reports say that the notchless design will be limited to the Pro variants.

Instead of a notch, Apple will use a smaller set of cuts on the display. Initially, speculations suggested that Apple will introduce a single circular hole-punch design to accommodate the front-facing camera, but new research suggests that Apple would likely add two cutouts.

For select iPhone 14 models, Apple is removing the notch, and reports say that the notchless design will be limited to the Pro variants.

Instead of a notch, Apple will use a smaller set of cuts on the display. Initially, speculations suggested that Apple will introduce a single circular hole-punch design to accommodate the front-facing camera, but new research suggests that Apple would likely add two cutouts.

Both a pill-shaped and a circular cutout are expected, according to display specialist Ross Young. The front camera will most likely be housed in the circular hole, while the Face ID hardware and potentially other components will be housed in the pill-shaped cutout. According to leaked pictures on the Chinese social networking site Weibo, the round cutout will be 5.631mm in diameter.

Apple may potentially aim to embed some of the Face ID technology behind the iPhone's display, which would reduce the size of the cutouts required and free up more screen area on the device's front, although it's unclear whether this will happen.

Front glass panels for the iPhone 14 models surfaced in April, with the pill-shaped and hole cutouts that would replace the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models portraying the pill-shaped and holes cutouts that will replace the notch on those models. Notches are still present on the normal iPhone 14 and 14 Max displays.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max screens have slightly lower bezels and a higher aspect ratio, and all of the display panels are consistent with previous rumors.

Schematics and Dummy Models iPhone 14 Pro

The display arrangement of the iPhone 14 Pro is supposedly shown in a schematic released in February, which purports to illustrate the precise size of the two cuts that will replace the notch. The pill-shaped cutout will be placed in the middle of the panel, according to display analyst Ross Young, although the schematic reveals an off-center design.

Schematics and Dummy Models iPhone 14 Pro

Schematics purporting to show the iPhone 14 Pro models were leaked in March, indicating that it will have a somewhat thicker design and a larger camera bump.

According to the schematics, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a width of 77.58mm, which is roughly comparable to the width of 78.1mm on the 13 Pro Max. It will be 160.7mm tall, the same as the 13 Pro Max, and 7.85mm thick, somewhat thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro Max's 7.65mm.

The camera bulge on the iPhone 13 Pro Max will be 4.17mm thick, up from 3.60mm on the iPhone 13 Pro. The camera bump's width and height are predicted to increase by around 5% in each direction, from 35.01mm to 36.73mm and 36.24mm to 38.21mm, respectively. Apple will add a 48-megapixel camera to the handset, which will require a larger camera bump.

The iPhone 14 Pro is believed to be the same size as the iPhone 13 Pro, measuring 71.45mm wide and 147.46mm tall. It will be 7.85mm thick, with a more pronounced camera bump.

The varying camera bump sizes are best displayed in a set of leaked iPhone 14 covers. In the image below, the cases are the iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14, in that sequence.

Schematics and Dummy Models

The size of the camera bumps on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max compared to the iPhone 13 models may be seen in 3D printed mockups. Because of the camera bump and chassis variations, covers made for iPhone 13 models are unlikely to fit iPhone 14 models.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max, on the other hand, will be identical in size to the iPhone 13 Pro Max, but due to the larger camera bump, an iPhone 13 Pro Max cover will not fit the iPhone 14 Pro Max.


iPhone 14 Pro

Jon Prosser, a YouTuber, presented various renders of the iPhone 14 Pro versions based on all of the rumors surrounding the product.

The renderings show a design with a dual-hole camera cutout at the front and a significantly larger camera configuration at the back to accommodate the 48-megapixel Wide camera lens, similar to the part leaks, dummy models, and schematics.
The renders show a design that is quite similar to the iPhone 13 Pro models, with flat sides and a few minor design changes. The photographs do reveal a new purple color for the iPhone 14 Pro models, which has been anticipated for some time.

ProMotion Display

For the iPhone 14 Pro versions, Apple is obtaining LTPO OLED panels with 120Hz ProMotion refresh rates. Despite the fact that Samsung provided the OLED panels for the iPhone 13 Pro models, Apple plans to source some displays from LG Display and BOE in 2022.

Upgraded ProMotion screens capable of lowering to as low as 1Hz, down from 10Hz, could be included in the iPhone 14 Pro variants, potentially allowing for always-on display technology.

Size Alternatives iPhone 14 Pro 

In 2022, there will be no 5.4-inch iPhone since Apple is discontinuing the "small" series due to low sales. Apple is likely to focus on larger-sized iPhones in the region of 6.1 to 6.7 inches for its flagship handsets in the future, with the iPhone 13 mini being the last of the tiny phones.

A 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max are all expected, with the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max replacing the small model.

The 120Hz ProMotion display technology will continue to be supported by the two iPhone 14 Pro variants, and speculations imply that ProMotion will remain a feature reserved for the more premium iPhone models. Though there have been reports that 120Hz refresh rates may Apple added to all iPhone 14 models, display analyst Ross Young believes this is unlikely due to display availability concerns.

Colors (iPhone 14 Pro )

According to an unconfirmed report, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will be available in purple. The speculation indicates that both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models will be available in purple color with a unique finish that varies tone depending on lighting conditions, though this has yet to be confirmed.

Colors (iPhone 14 Pro )

If the purple rumor is true, Apple has previously utilized the same color for the normal iPhone and Pro models, but in different shades, so that might be what we see in 2022. The iPhone 14 and 14 Max are expected to be offered in black, white, blue, red, and purple, with graphite, gold, silver, and purple for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.


According to a JP Morgan Chase investor report, Apple's future iPhone 14 Pro versions could feature a high-end titanium alloy chassis design. Titanium had already been utilized by Apple in the Apple Watch, but this would be the first time the material has been used in an iPhone.

Titanium is more scratch-resistant, stronger, and corrosion-resistant than both steel and aluminum.


High-end iPhone models are expected to use a vapor chamber thermal system starting in 2022, which Apple is believed to be "aggressively testing." Because of their higher computing power and better 5G connection rates, high-end iPhones will require the VC thermal system. There are currently smartphones with vapor chamber cooling technology from Samsung, Razer, and LG, which are designed to keep a device cool when it is under a lot of stress.

Camera  improvements (iPhone 14 Pro)

The Ultra-Wide camera on iPhones in 2022 could be improved, and Apple is expected to improve the telephoto and wide-angle lenses on iPhone 14 Pro models. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that the telephoto camera will be upgraded from a 6-element lens to a 7-element lens.

Camera  improvements (iPhone 14 Pro)

It's uncertain whether the vapor chamber thermal system will meet Apple's stringent requirements, but the company is attempting to improve it, and high-end models may soon adopt it.

Kuo also expects the 2022 Pro iPhone models to include a 48-megapixel Wide camera, a significant upgrade over the current 12-megapixel camera, as well as 8K video recording capabilities, which will allow iPhone-recorded footage to be projected on an 8K display or TV for a "better user experience."

The anticipated 48-megapixel camera in the iPhone 14 Pro versions will also be able to take 12-megapixel photos, most likely by pixel-binning. Pixel binning improves low-light sensitivity by combining data from numerous tiny pixels on the camera's image sensor into one "super-pixel."

When the lighting is excellent, the iPhone 14 Pro models may be able to take full 48-megapixel images, but when the lighting is low, it will employ the pixel binning technique to produce a higher-quality 12-megapixel photo that utilizes the 48-megapixel lens.

The iPhone 14 Pro's Wide camera could possibly have a 21% larger sensor with smaller pixels, which would give photographs more clarity. Because the information comes from an unconfirmed Weibo account, it should be treated with caution.

According to the rumor, the iPhone 14 Pro's Wide camera pixels would be smaller, measuring 1.22m. When compared to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, there is a 0.68m reduction. The sensor is believed to come from Sony, and it will have Apple's "Focus Pixels" function that has been available for years.

The sensor on the camera is rumored to be 1/1.3-inches in size, which is a 21.2 percent increase over the 1/1.65-inches sensor on the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max's Wide camera. The lens will be able to catch more light with a larger sensor, which will result in a larger back camera array.

All iPhone 14 versions likely to be released this year will have an improved front camera with a larger f/1.9 aperture and focusing capabilities. A larger aperture would allow more light to travel through the lens and onto the sensor, resulting in clearer, crisper photographs and a greater depth of field. The improved autofocus would help with focus tweaks during video calls.


Apple usually releases new iPhones with an improved A-series chip, but this year the company may vary from its usual practice. Only the iPhone 14 Pro models will have the new and speedier A16 chip, according to Apple expert Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to Kuo, the ordinary iPhone 14 models will have the same A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 13 models in 2022, indicating a substantial distinction between the Pro and non-Pro iPhones.

According to reports, the A16 processor for the iPhone 14 Pro models will be constructed on TSMC's 5-nanometer "NP4" technology, which is the company's third major upgrade of the 5-nanometer family.


The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models will have 6GB RAM, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, which is the same amount of RAM as the iPhone 13 Pro versions. According to rumors from the Chinese supply chain, the iPhone 14 Pro models will include 8GB RAM to equal the Samsung Galaxy S22, but Apple rarely implements features to match competing devices randomly.

Car Crash Detection (iPhone 14 Pro)

Apple is developing a crash detection feature for the iPhone and Apple Watch that could be released in 2022. It will employ accelerometers and other sensors to detect car accidents by sensing a spike in gravitational force.

When an automobile accident is detected, the iPhone or Apple Watch will automatically dial 911 for assistance. This could be a feature built for the iPhone 14 models and the Apple Watch Series 8, although it's not likely to be limited to those devices, given that it's slated for 2022. It will be an expansion of the existing Apple Watch and iPhone models' Fall Detection capability.

Modem Snapdragon X65

The Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 modem, which is the world's first 10 Gigabit 5G modem and antenna system for iPhones, will be used in the iPhone 14 models.

Radio Frequency Chip

According to Taiwan's Economic Daily News, Apple has bought 5G radio frequency (RF) chips from TSMC, with Apple using its own technology rather than Samsung's.

The chips are said to be made using TSMC's 6-nanometer process, which allows for a smaller package and lower power consumption. This could result in longer battery life and support for WiFi 6E while using 5G technology.

Satellite Internet Access

The Qualcomm Snapdragon X65 supports some satellite connectivity features, and Apple wants to deploy satellite-based emergency features with the modem, allowing users to send messages in emergency circumstances and report significant incidents in places where cellular coverage is not available.

When there is no cellular or WiFi signal, Emergency Message by Satellite will allow users to text emergency services and contacts utilizing a satellite network. Along with SMS and iMessage, it will be a new communication system with gray message bubbles. The length of messages will be limited.

Another feature will allow users to use satellite networks to notify serious catastrophes such as airline crashes and fires. These features are still in the works and are expected to debut in 2022 at the earliest.

6E WiFi

According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 Pro models will have WiFi 6E connection. WiFi 6E, according to Kuo, will provide the high-speed wireless transmissions required for AR and VR experiences, and it will also be used in a mixed reality headgear that could be released in 2022.

WiFi 6E uses the 6GHz frequency in addition to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels to enhance bandwidth and reduce interference while also providing the performance gain and low latency that the WiFi 6 standard provides.

Storage capacity of 2TB

Apple established a new 1TB storage tier with the iPhone 13 Pro models, and reports say that with the iPhone 14 upgrade, Apple could boost it even higher to 2TB.

There is no physical SIM slot.

Apple may release the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro without a physical SIM slot, instead opting for an eSIM-only design. According to reports, Apple is advising major US carriers to prepare for the launch of eSIM-only smartphones by 2022, implying that some iPhone 14 models may be the first to be released without a SIM slot.

Apple released some iPhone 13 units without a nano-SIM in the package, allowing cellular plans to be activated through eSIM instead. An eSIM enables the addition of cellular plans to a device without the use of a nano-SIM.

Because eSIM technology isn't accessible in every country, certain iPhones will still need to have a nano-SIM slot. In places where a SIM-free iPhone is offered, it may be optional, with customers able to pick between a SIM-free and a SIM-enabled version. More than 60 nations support eSIM, according to Apple's website, which includes a list.

iPhone 14 Pro Launch Date

If Apple sticks to prior launch schedules, the iPhone 14 variants are slated to be unveiled in September 2022.

Foxconn, an Apple supplier, is said to have started trial production of the iPhone 14 Pro in February, implying that the device's design has been completed.

Because of pandemic-related delays in China, at least one of the iPhone 14 models is three weeks behind schedule, which indicates that one of the next devices could be delayed or in short supply at launch.
