Jon Prosser recently published renders of what appears to be the new i phone. The rumor mill suggests that Apple is planning to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 chip in the phone, and it is rumored that Apple will also introduce new satellite-based emergency features. Apple will most likely increase battery life and add multi-camera functionality to its new device. Ultimately, it will be an expensive phone, but it will have all the bells and whistles to keep you entertained.
Jon Prosser released renders of the new i phone
Some rumors have Apple preparing a full-screen iPhone. But what does the 14-inch device look like? Fortunately, a tech channel insider and blogger named Jon Prosser released renderings of the new iPhone 14 range. These renders show changes in hardware, including faster speeds, new cameras, and a longer battery life. In addition, the new iPhone might also be able to hold a bigger display.
Despite his spotty track record, Jon Prosser recently published a series of ostensibly accurate renders of the new iPhone 14 Pro. The renders, which were made based on the images that Prosser has seen, are largely accurate. The “iPhone 14 Pro” is expected to be a thinner version of the iPhone X, with a camera bump replaced by a hole. The new model will also feature round volume buttons and a glass front, according to the renders.
In addition to the renders of the iPhone 14, Prosser shared other rumours. Among them were a possible rumoured purple colour. He also shared renders of the Apple Watch series 8 with a flat display. But these renders didn’t match his original claims. It’s unclear if Apple will include the infamous “Second” earpiece in the iPhone 14, or whether it will feature a USB-C port instead of a headphone jack.
Apple has been notorious for leaking internal information about its latest products, so it’s not surprising that Jon Prosser was among the most prominent leaker for the iPhone 12. He had early insights into pricing, naming, and the late launch cycle. He also managed to predict the release date of the HomePod mini. In addition, he got the wrong price of the new device.
The camera bump is also a common rumor, but the new iPhone will feature a much thicker design. In addition to hiding the camera bump, it may also give the phone a better battery life, and Prosser notes that the back of the phone will have a glass sheet, reminiscent of the iPhone 4 and 4S. The new iPhone will also have round volume buttons.
Apple is rumored to be working on a design that will incorporate both a pill-shaped cutout and a circular hole punch
Rumors are swirling that Apple will introduce a new notch-less iPhone. The circular hole will be a smaller version of the current notch. That will give Apple more room to install other components on the front of the phone. While a pill-shaped hole punch design would be similar to what Android manufacturers use, the new hole design will be unique to Apple.
LTPO, or low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, will enable screens to remain constantly on, even when the device is locked. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicts that this technology will make its way onto the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The technology works similarly to Apple Watch’s haptic feedback, allowing the device to lower the refresh rate of its screen when it is locked, but still display useful information.
If this rumor turns out to be true, then the iPhone 14 will be the first iPhone with both a pill-shaped cutout and circular hole punch. This device will be made available in a range of colors, starting with gold, rose gold, and silver, and will also support mmWave and sub-6 5G networks. And since the device will still have a 6.1-inch display, the company is expected to phase out its iPhone 11 series and introduce a whole new lineup of smartphones.
A Chinese website called ShrimpApplePro recently posted a possible iPhone 14 prototype that shows both circular hole punch and pill-shaped cutout. Apple is expected to ditch the notch on its next-generation iPhone in 2023. According to Young, the iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone models will have both designs. Lower-end models will continue to have a notch.
Rumors have suggested that the new iPhone will be slightly taller than previous models. The iPhone 14 Pro might even feature a pill-shaped cutout to house the front camera, and Face ID. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman believes that this is the case. Leaked front panels for the new i phone range also support this idea.
Apple is rumored to be using Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 chip
The iPhone 6 Plus will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X65 chip, which enables satellite connectivity. The chip will allow users to report emergency situations using satellite networks. Apple is also working on a new technology for car crash detection. This technology will use the phone’s accelerometer to detect an accident and then automatically send help to emergency services.
While the new iPhone has a more powerful CPU, its modem will likely get a major upgrade. The Snapdragon X65 is the first 10-gigabit 5G modem, which will allow it to deliver faster data speeds. The new chip will also allow for satellite connectivity options, such as Emergency Messages. The new messaging protocol will also limit message length and enable gray message bubbles.
As with previous generations, Apple may use Qualcomm’s X60 modem in the new i phone. This chip supports sub-6GHz 5G, which will be available in iPhones sometime in 2022 or later. Apple may be using this chip to speed up the process of developing new iPhones, but this is not a guarantee. If Apple uses the new chip, the device will most likely be a big improvement over the iPhone 13.
While Qualcomm is a good partner, it isn’t a perfect fit. Qualcomm and Apple signed an agreement six years ago to continue to work together on chipsets. If the agreement goes through, Apple could be free from Qualcomm in 2023 and count on their own 5G modem chip. This would be a major win for both companies and for consumers.
While the rumors of a Qualcomm X65 chip are still a bit confusing, it’s a good sign. It means Apple is putting a new chip into the next i phone and a new processor for iPhones. Using the same chipset for different iPhone models has proven to be a successful strategy.
Apple is expected to introduce new satellite-based emergency features
The next iPhone may have emergency features powered by satellites, and it might send medical IDs, location, and emergency messages to the right people wherever you are. This feature could be very useful in times of disaster and could spoil the plot of any horror movie. But is it really possible to use emergency features with a phone? According to Bloomberg, Apple is currently working on a number of satellite-based safety features that would allow people to send emergency messages to preselected contacts and emergency services around the world.
The new Emergency Message via Satellite feature will let you text emergency contacts, even if there is no cell signal, in an emergency. The message will have a maximum length and gray bubbles, but will bypass Do Not Disturb settings. Emergency messages can also contain medical information and be sent through emergency contacts’ phones. Apple has promised the new feature will be available in the new iPhone.
If the new Apple phones do have this feature, it will require a special modem chip that supports satellite communications. Although Globalstar is not a confirmed partner, Bloomberg has not ruled out the possibility. Apple may also bring this feature to the Apple Watch, although that has not been confirmed yet. As with any major technology, it is likely to become a standard feature on Apple’s products.
The new iPhone is a smartphone that will be capable of sending texts to first responders. It also will allow users to report emergencies in areas where cellular service is not available. The new iPhone is expected to be available sometime in the fall of this year, but if it does not, it will be released later in the year. Its availability will depend on how quickly Apple decides to make it available to the public.
The iPhone 13 could have a Qualcomm X60 baseband chip, which would allow it to take advantage of both 4G and 5G networks, as well as satellite signals. Kuo says Globalstar is the most likely satellite partner for Apple. This company has satellites similar to those of SpaceX and Starlink. So, if the new i phone does have satellite features, this could be a great feature.
