Hate iPhone 13 'faults'? Apple iPhone 14 set to fix it all
A stunning new iPhone 14 concept has appeared online and it has 'fixes' for two big iPhone 13 faults.
The iPhone 13 series has been launched. Needless to say, it may have pleased many, but it disappointed some fans simply because it was not updated enough even though other rival phone-makers have these new features. Apple could have made these changes on iPhone 13, but chose not to.
Now, Apple fans are thinking about what they can expect from the iPhone line-up next year. Well, the company is believed to be working on a new iPhone SE (2020) successor as well as the iPhone 14 series that could arrive later in 2022. Importantly, for all those people who were disappointed by the iPhone 13, the iPhone 14 could come with serious changes to the smartphone’s design.

True, with the iPhone 13 series launched less than a month ago, the iPhone 14 is a long way off and it could be months before we have our first look at a leaked image or renders of the iPhone 13 successor. However, every year, artists use their imagination to visualise what the next iPhone could look like, and now a new concept video of the iPhone 14 has appeared online - it is a stunner.
In the concept video of the iPhone 13 successor spotted by Tom’s Guide, artist ConceptsiPhone has imagined a brand new look for the iPhone 14. The biggest change so far, and the one that is most noticeable is the disappearance of the notch. In the concept video, the iPhone 14 only has a punch hole camera, but it is currently unclear where the other sensors such as the infrared camera and other sensors used for Face ID will be located.
The iPhone 14 concept video also imagines the return of Touch ID, which was strongly rumoured to arrive on the iPhone 13, but never materialised. However, unlike the suggestions of an in-screen fingerprint sensor that was previously suggested for the iPhone 13, this video looks at Touch ID making a comeback on the power button like the iPad mini 6.
The concept video also visualises an iPhone 14 that does away with the Lightning port, which also shows a USB Type-C connector created in its place. Finally, the concept video also imagines the camera bump on the iPhone 14 being completely done away with. This could be achieved with a smaller battery, which would also mean a slimmer phone – while some might argue that it could also allow for a larger battery with a thicker body.
While these concept videos are exactly what the name suggests – concepts, there is no indication as to whether these changes will actually appear on next year’s iPhone. It is too early to speculate on the iPhone 14 series, especially with the camera bump and the notch, but with the EU’s plans of making USB Type-C connectors the norm, it might be worth waiting and seeing what Apple decides to do with its next flagship smartphones.
