Apple may have a plan to launch its iPhone 14 with an upgraded camera system in 2022. There might be several new features. Let’s have a look at all the iPhone 14 leaks and rumors out there so far-
Kou says Largan and Yujingguang are working with Apple to come up with a 2Q22 AR/MR HMD lens and 2H22 new 48MP lenses for 2022 iPhones. A few days back, Mr. Kou said that AR/VR headset prototypes that Apple has made could be somewhere between 200-300gm in weight. He also mentioned integrating Sony micro-OLED displays which will be self-powered along with their storage system in the device.
Mr. Kou further says there will be four models of different sizes. However, 5.4-inch “Mini” sizes will retire in 2022. The sizes are-
- 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Regular Models
- 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro Models
“We reiterate our previous key specifications forecast for 2H22 iPhone models, namely that Apple will launch two high-end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) and two low- end iPhones (6.1″ and 6.7″) in 2H22.
We believe the growth drivers for the new 2H22 iPhones will come from 1) the potential for under-display fingerprint support (using Apple’s own technology), 2) the lowest price ever for a large (6.7″) iPhone (we expect it to be under USD 900), and 3) a wide camera upgrade to 48MP for high-end models.“

The New Camera
There is a huge possibility that the iPhone 14 will come with a 48MP camera in 2022. Right now the iPhone 12 Pro Max has a decent 12 MP camera as the main shooter. iPhone Cameras are better even though they are not featuring high megapixel lenses like every other company is doing. However, Apple may be thinking of upgrading the cameras. There might be AR headsets as well according to tech analyst Min Chi Kou.
TouchID or FaceID
After a long time, it seems Apple is finally listening to fans again. There will be under-display TouchID on iPhone 14 according to Ming Chi Kou. However, if Apple gets rid of the FaceID, it can be assumed that iPhone 14 will have a smaller notch even smaller than iPhone 13 or no notch at all. You see, in 2022, there will be several upgrades and modifications to devices like smartphones, therefore, Apple could offer an under-display selfie shooter as well with an earpiece housed in the top bezel.
Ming Chi Kou revealed some plans that Apple has for the 2022 iPhone models. You see, over the years, iPhone is being one of the expensive devices. Even the trimmed down SE models as well. In 2022, Apple wants to offer more and it seems the larger base model i.e. 6.7-inch iPhone 14 will cost no more than $900. Therefore the customer will get a larger iPhone except for the “Pro Model” tag on it with $200 less from 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro. 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro max might cost nearly $1099.
Apple will be announcing its new iPhone models this September, iPhone 13 lineup. However, this iPhone 13 lineup will not get a 3nm A15 chip as the rumor goes. Therefore, there is a great chance that iPhone 14 will get some real upgrades in cameras and the chipset after iPhone 13. Stay tuned for more iPhone 14 leaks and rumors.
