Apple Preparing Complete Redesign For 2022 IPhone 14, Plus Foldable
Apple’s engineers have been hard at it, and not just on the iPhone 13. With the dust barely settled on their freshest release, news has been filtering out that next year’s iPhone 14 will be a “complete redesign”.
With only minor changes on the 13, pundits are saying this means the engineers have been working a long game and keeping their eye on 2022, when we can expect “new entry-level and Pro models”. There should also be a super-sized Max unit.
According to a tech analyst that has seen a prototype but wasn’t allowed to photograph it, the Pro Max will come without the camera bump and notch. In place of the notch will be a pin-hole selfie camera, such as those on Androids like the Samsung Galaxy S21.
Speculation is also at fever pitch that the Mini is set to go the way of the dodo, and that Apple are only a few years away from launching a foldable.
With the success of Samsung’s foldables, a number of patents suggest the company has had a similar device since 2016, expected to be a clamshell.
Research estimates that 100 million foldables will ship in 2025. It’s no doubt Apple will want to stake their share of that.
