Just after pre-orders commenced for the flagship lineup of iPhones, it looks like we’re getting a first glimpse on what Apple has in store for next year’s iPhones going forward according to Ming-Chi Kuo. This includes an iPhone with a Touch ID-embedded screen, a foldable iPhone, and an iPhone 14 Pro.
First, Ming-Chi Kuo expected that the supposedly named “iPhone 14 Pro” will feature a 48MP Wide Camera – a 4x improvement in resolution from the 12MP camera the iPhone has had for years. The company is also planning to do away with the notch introduced with the iPhone X in place of a hole-punch display. Know that this year’s iPhone 13 models features there smaller notch with the earpiece moved closer to the top. This hole-punch design is similar to what Samsung has been doing with their displays, and it is one step closer to having a true edge-to-edge display.
Second, Kuo initially reported that the first iPhones with under-screen Touch ID would ship in the second half of next year. Now he reported that development has been delayed into the second half of 2023. If Touch ID were to exist under the screen, it would most likely complement Face ID as a second option for authentication. Third, with more and more foldable phones in the market, Kuo has expected that the big company will launch its foldable competitor in 2024.
Another model that Kuo expects to see next year is the third-generation iPhone SE with 5G support. The iPhone 14 models will launch late next year as we are expecting. Would you be looking forward to a foldable iPhone?
