CAD renders of iPhone 14 and 14 Pro show differences in notch design
Apple is still far from unveiling the iPhone 14 series, but rumors and leaks about the new iPhones appear regularly. The most recent is CAD renders of the vanilla variant of the iPhone 14 (from MySmartPrice) and the iPhone 14 Pro variant (from 91Mobiles). These renders tie in with earlier reports that suggested the iPhone 14 Pro would ditch the notch. If you thought the giant from Cupertino wanted to get rid of the notch for good, that might not be the case this year, as the renders of the iPhone 14 have a similar design language to the iPhone 13 series.
The most obvious difference is the “Pill+Hole” cutout on the iPhone 14 Pro models. The exact details of the underlying sensors and such are unknown. But we can safely assume that the tablet will contain a Face ID transmitter and an infrared sensor, while the selfie camera will be in the hole.
Apart from a fresh look on the iPhone front, the advantage of this design is the extra space for the status line.
The rest of the design is familiar.
The only noticeable difference in the design of the iPhone 14 is a thicker glass cover on the back of the camera.
CAD renderings of both iPhones show a Lightning connector (sadly, no USB-C this time either!), cutouts for the 5G antenna, volume button, power button, back/swivel switch, SIM tray, microphones, and speaker grilles. These elements are arranged more or less as you would expect.
In an earlier report, we learned that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro would be available in screen sizes of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches. If you are curious about the iPhone 14 mini, forget it, as you can get an iPhone 14 Max instead.
The biggest difference, however, should be in the internals. According to rumors, the iPhone 14 Duo will be equipped with the same Apple A15 Bionic processor and LPDDR4x RAM, while the Pro Edition iPhones will have an Apple A16 Bionic chip.
But Apple rumors do not always match reality. As is often the case with leaks, all such information should be taken with a grain of salt.
