It has just been over three months since the launch of Apple’s latest iPhone series this year, the iPhone 13, and now the Apple enthusiasts are already looking for rumours, leaks and any information about the next-generation iPhone that is expected to arrive in September 2022.

Here, we are listing out the best of what we know so far about the upcoming devices so that you have an idea of what to expect from the 2022 iPhones. Let’s dive in to find out.

Line-up: iPhone 14 mini dropped


Apple is expected to drop the iPhone 14 mini from its line-up next year. Despite poor sales of the iPhone 12 mini, the company launched it this year. However, we are likely to see four devices making the line-up next year, namely the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with the iPhone 14 Max making its debut.

iPhone 14 design


The iPhone 14 design is rumoured to be an amalgamation of iPhone 12 and iPhone 4 with flat edges. The sides are said to be made of titanium, making it sturdier than previous generation devices. The back is expected to sport the same glass surface.

On the front, Apple could drop its wide notch for a punch-hole type camera housing. As for connectivity, Apple is likely to stick with its Lightning port for another year. The rear cameras could also see a redesign, sitting flush with the back without the protrusion.

iPhone 14 display


As for the display, we could see two display sizes across the four models. A 6.1-inch display on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, and a larger 6.7-inch display for the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. There will likely be no 5.4-inch mini next year.

This year, the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max featured a 120Hz refresh rate display, but we expect Apple to extend it to other models of the phone as well. We may also see the Always-on display feature that was tipped to arrive on the iPhone 13 series.

iPhone 14 cameras


Not much has been heard about the camera, but the biggest upgrade is likely to be here. The rear camera is expected to see a 48MP primary sensor, up from a 12MP sensor found in the iPhone 13 series. We may also see telephoto lenses with better capabilities and improved optical zoom.
