As we are inching closer to the September 7 launch, the rumors around the specifications and design the upcoming iPhone 14 series will bring onboard are getting aggressive like ever. Apparently, the latest rumors around the punch-hole cutout where different reports corroborate different layouts, and apparently, the prices have been leaked as well although take it with a pinch of salt.
Apple iPhone 14 Series Price Leaked
According to a story published by 9to5Mac, the prices for the upcoming iPhone 14 series have been leaked. The series comprises four models i.e. 6.1” iPhone 14, 6.7” iPhone 14 Max, 6.1” iPhone 14 Pro, and finally, a 6.7” iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Talking about the pricing, the report adds that the vanilla iPhone 14 will start at a price tag of $749 or approx INR 59,600/- which will definitely put the model within reach of many interested buyers. Moving on, the next non-Pro model is the iPhone 14 Max teased to arrive at $849 (or INR 67,500/-) and again, these aren’t official pricing.
Next up, there’s iPhone 14 Pro at $999 (or INR 83,500/-) which puts it above the iPhone 13 Pro counterpart when comparing the entry-level pricing. Finally, there’s the iPhone 14 Pro which is likely to arrive at a $1,149 starting price or INR 91,400/-.
iPhone 14 Pro Models Tipped With Pill-Shaped Cutout
For the unversed, iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are highly likely to ditch the infamous notch and will get a punch-hole notch onboard which takes less screen real estate and doesn’t just stare at your face like a normal notch. However, there have been many reports about the notch and Mark Gurman has more information about it.
According to Mark Gurman, the notch onboard iPhone 14 Pro models will have two punch-holes instead of a single pill-shaped notch. Here, Apple is likely to use some software-based unlit pixel technique to conjoin both the punch-hole into creating a pill-shaped notch. The space between the cutouts will be used for privacy indicators where your iPhone will notify you if some apps are using a camera and/or mic. It will save up crucial screen real estate since the current iPhones have these privacy indicators on the extreme right of the status bar.
This information comes from some of the alleged employees working at Foxconn who happen to know about the Pro variant.
Apart from the tipped notch updates, Apple is likely to redesign some elements of the built-in Camera app. A mockup created by MacRumors shows how the camera app will have some of the controls moved to the top of the screen including Live Photo and Flash. This will allow the users to have more screen real estate at the bottom of the screen.
The Apple iPhone 14 Series will arrive officially on September 7 at the Apple Far Out Launch Event along with Apple Watch Series 8, and Apple Watch SE, among other announcements that we will get to know more about once the products launch.
