It really is worth noting that the moulds seen in the Weibo image were most likely created for the creation of third-party iPhone cases rather than real devices. Nonetheless, they appear to match unsubstantiated data we’ve been hearing in recent months, particularly in regards to the devices’ size.
The absence of an iPhone small model is the first significant distinction in the lineup. In 2022, iPhone sizes will change, with the 5.4-inch iPhone being phased out due to customer dissatisfaction.

Apple is now providing bigger iPhone sizes for its flagship smartphones, including an 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, following the disappointing sales of the iPhone 14 mini. The iPhone 14 models are expected to feature the same flat edges as the iPhone 13 models.
Camera bump sizes are anticipated to vary slightly throughout the range. The camera bump on the 2022 high-end iPhone will be 4.17 mm thick, or 0.57 mm thicker than the hump on the iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to iPhone 14 Pro Max schematics released by Max Weinbach. The bulge on the rear of the iPhone will also grow in size by around 5% in each dimension, from 35.01 mm to 36.73 mm in width and 36.24 mm to 38.21 mm in height. We don’t know what the differences between the ordinary iPhone 14 rumours will be.
Improvements to the Ultra Wide camera are also expected as a result of these camera bump modifications. According to rumours, the iPhone 14 Pro versions would offer major enhancements to the wide-angle camera as well as telephoto lens changes. Ming-Chi Kuo, an Apple analyst, expects that the 2022 Pro iPhone models would include a 48-megapixel Wide camera, a significant upgrade over the present 12-megapixel camera, as well as 8K video recording capabilities.
While the picture only shows the backs of the smartphones, the notch is believed to be replaced with a mix of a circular hole-punch cutout for the camera and a pill-shaped cutout in the 2022 iPhone 14 Pro models. This update is believed to be confined to the Pro versions, with the notch remaining on the normal iPhone 14 images devices.
If Apple sticks to prior launch schedules, the iPhone variants are slated to be unveiled in September 2022. For a lot more detail on what we know about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, check out our dedicated guides.
