TrendForce additionally suggests that the new iPhone 14 Pro models are likely to start with 256GB of storage. This is compared to 128GB for the iPhone 13 Pro Models. However, this information is not entirely certain, as the storage is listed in a chart as “TBD”.
Rumors from the Mill
Previous rumors also include that the two features likely to be exclusive for iPhone 14 Pro models will be a possible upgraded 48-megapixel camera lens and an A16 chip. The standard iPhone 14 models are likely going to continue with the A15 chip.
Further rumors for the iPhone 14 is that no iPhone 14 mini is expected this production season. However, Apple is likely planning to launch a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models, as well as 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max models. There are also rumors that the iPhone 14 may feature an “always-on” display.
