1/5 iPhones are ridiculously fast smartphones that breeze through even the most demanding tasks without breaking a sweat. Even 2020’s iPhone 12 can hold up against most smartphones. Even better things are coming, though. Apple might give the upcoming iPhone 14 series a major performance boost. (FrontPageTech)

3/5 This is a major upgrade over the 4GB LPDDR4X RAM which powers the current iPhone 13 series. The report claims that the LPDDR5 RAM will be a faster and more efficient type of memory compared to the old LPDDR4 RAM which powers the current iPhone 13 series. This is a major power boost for the iPhone 14 which is sure to strengthen iPhone’s position as the fastest smartphone in the market. (Front Page Tech)

4/5 A report by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, previously tipped that the next flagship A16 Bionic chip will be powering the iPhone 14 Pro models. On the other hand, the non-Pro models will continue with an upgraded version of the A15 Bionic chipset, which currently powers the iPhone 13 Pro models. (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

5/5 Further rumours suggest that iPhone 14 series is expected to have the same flat-edged design introduced with the iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 14 is expected to have thin-flat edges, larger camera bump, new notch design and more. However, since there is no official confirmation from Apple, all this information must be taken with a grain of salt as they are still unconfirmed reports. So, until the iPhone 14 series officially launches in September or October, we just might have to wait. (FrontPageTech)

iPhone 14 Pro likely to be available only in 128GB storage variant! (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

Apple is just a month away from the launch of the iPhone 14 series. However, there is a lot of speculation about the expected upgrades, price and specs and it is creating a lot of confusion. A new leak about the expected storage variant of the new lineup suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro model will start its base model variant from 128GB storage as was the case with iPhone 13. As shared by MacRumors, research firm TrendForce suggested that iPhone 14 Pro models could get a storage booster with base model starting from 256GB, but this theory looks to have been trashed by the latest leak. Now, Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu tipped that the upcoming Pro models will continue with 128GB of storage for the base model.

According to analyst Jeff Pu (via MacRumors), the Pro versions of the iPhone 14 will retain the storage of the current iPhones: specifically, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB. Though he had earlier stated that iPhone 14 Pro models' storage would start from 256GB, but now he has added a 128GB variant to his specs chart for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Meanwhile, there were speculation that the iPhone 14 lineup could be priced the same as iPhone 13 line up, however, popular analyst Ming-Chi Kuo tipped that the iPhone 14 Pro models will have "price hikes" by 15%. He did not reveal exact pricing, but suggested that the average selling price of the entire iPhone 14 lineup will increase by about 15% vis a vis iPhone 13.

Currently, iPhone 13 or iPhone 13 mini are available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage variants whereas iPhone 13 Pro models are available in 4 storage variants - 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.

Apart from these rumors, there is speculation that the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Max are going to use the same A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 13 range (albeit they will get the upgraded chips that are in iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max phones) while iPhone 14 Pro models will get a new A16 Bionic chipset.
