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.
