The production of the iPhone 14 would already seem in the validation phase, at the engineering level, but without the periscope camera that some rumors had suggested.
The new type of lens for the iPhone camera, which would allow users to take photos with 5x optical zoom, could take longer than expected and only come to market with the iPhone 15 in 2023. That doesn’t rule out major upgrades to the iPhone 14 camera, however, which – it’s assumed – will be 48MP.
Six months before the presentation of the iPhone 14, the smartphone therefore undergoes the last engineering tests. In a note reported by 9to5Mac, Haitong International Securities analyst Jeff Pu alleged that the iPhone 14 is now in EVT phase, a very promising news that would dissolve the clouds hanging over the hypothetical production delay due to the confinement.
Moreover, the analyst shared some curiosities about the upcoming iPhone 14 and said that the A16 chip, intended for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, will feature a larger size than the A15, despite the migration to 4 technology. n.
We expect extremely high performance from this new SoC which, thanks to the production technology and the supposedly larger dimensions, could contain a much more powerful core than the previous generation. After all, Apple’s experience in the ARM realm is nearly endless, as we’ve seen with the M1, M1 Pro, M1 Max, and M1 Ultra chips.
We will see what Apple will present next fall and we will follow, as always, the various rumors for you.
