Each fall, Apple introduces new iPhone models, and 2022 will be no exception. We're expecting four new iPhones in 6.1 and 6.7-inch sizes. Two of those iPhones will be standard, more affordable models called the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, while the other two will be the higher-end "Pro" models called the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
In this roundup, we have all the details on what to expect from the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, and you can also check out our iPhone 14 rumor roundup for a complete overview of all four iPhone models, including the more affordable options.
As with the iPhone 13 Pro lineup, in 2022, we are expecting a 6.1-inch "iPhone 14 Pro" and a 6.7-inch "iPhone 14 Pro Max." Rumors suggest there will be some major design differences between the iPhone 14 Pro models and the standard iPhone 14 models because Apple is introducing changes to the Face ID camera.
Instead of a notch, the iPhone 14 Pro models are rumored to include two display cutouts. A pill-shape cutout will house the Face ID dot projector and other Face ID components, and a second circular cutout will accommodate the front-facing camera. The non-Pro models are expected to continue to have a standard notch.
The iPhone 14 Pro models could have a titanium chassis, which would be an upgrade from the stainless steel used for the iPhone 13 Pro. Titanium would also set the iPhone 14 Pro apart from the iPhone 14 models that are expected to continue to use an aluminum chassis.
For all iPhone 14 models, the rear camera could also see a new design with Apple introducing a thicker body that allows for the camera bump to be eliminated. If this pans out, the lenses, flash, and LiDAR scanner could sit flush with the rear glass.
There are camera improvements coming to the iPhone 14 Pro models. Apple is expected to introduce a 48-megapixel camera and 8K video recording capabilities. There could also be some improvements to the telephoto lens, and we may see a better Ultra Wide camera. The 48-megapixel Wide camera, the telephoto lens improvements, and the LiDAR Scanner will continue to be Pro-only features.
Though the iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to see camera improvements and notch changes not coming to the iPhone 14 models, all four iPhones coming in 2022 will use Apple's A16 chips with improvements in power and efficiency.Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.
Apple is expected to use Qualcomm's Snapdragon X65 5G chip, which is the first 10-gigabit 5G modem with faster connectivity speeds and connectivity improvements. Alongside the X65, Apple is expected to introduce new satellite-based emergency features that will let users send texts in emergency situations and report accidents with no cellular coverage.
