    1/6 Leave alone the iPhone mini, the new iPhone 14 Plus/Max is expected to have a larger display than even the standard iPhone 14. It is rumoured to have the same 6.7-inch screen size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max, albeit without the features that make it “Pro”. Apple is restarting the trend of assigning “Plus” tag with its larger devices, last seen in the iPhone 8 Plus. (Representational image) (Amritanshu Mukherjee / HT Tech)

    2/6 According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus/Max will be powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic processor. Only the Pro models will receive the new A16 Bionic chipset. Although, the A15 chip in the iPhone 14 is expected to be an improved version of the A15 Bionic currently powering the iPhone 13 series. (Representational image) (Amritanshu / HT Tech)

    Apple Event
    6/6 iPhone 14 Plus/Max along with all the other iPhones and the Apple Watch 8, is expected to be launched at Apple’s “Far Out” event scheduled for September 7 at the Steve Jobs Theater. However, all the information released by leaks and rumours should be taken with a pinch of salt as these are still unconfirmed reports. So, we can only wait until Apple officially confirms the details, which could be at launch of the iPhone 14 series itself. (REUTERS)

    Just a few days before the Apple Far Out event, how the always on display on iPhone 14 Pro will look has been revealed. According to a source that spoke to MacRumors, the iPhone 14 Pro will feature several new features and changes on the Lock Screen and the status bar. Earlier, it was also leaked that the iPhone 14 Pro display cutouts could well appear as a single long pill shape when turned on and it will show camera plus microphone privacy indicators.

    It can be known that during the Apple launch event, the company is expected to launch 4 iPhone 14 models- iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max/Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max/Plus on September 7.

    Coming to the latest leak, according to the information provided to MacRumors by an anonymous source, "iOS 16's Lock Screen will directly interact with the iPhone 14 Pro's always-on display, featuring integration with notifications and the depth effect and colors of wallpapers."

    The status bar on the iPhone 14 Pro will also see changes because of the increased amount of usable space at the top of the display, moving the cellular signal indicator to the left and re-implementing the full-width battery status bar on the Lock Screen and notification center when the device is locked, the report said.

    According to the information provided by the source to MacRumors, the iPhone 14 Pro will have the following benefits for the users:

    1. When the display on the phone will be in always on mode, the background of the Lock Screen wallpapers with a depth effect will be removed and fully darkened. The foreground will be dimmed and tinted with colour and feature edge highlights based on the user customisation.

    2. In order to prevent OLED burn-in, the widgets will fade in and out at set intervals on the always on display.

    3. "Content shown on the always-on Lock Screen and the full-illuminated Lock Screen must be configured in the same way and cannot be separated, meaning that they have to share the same wallpaper, color choices, fonts, and widgets. The core visual elements of the always-on display itself can be independently customized," the report informed.

    4. Notifications will roll in from the bottom one at a time and remain visible for 10 seconds. And as soon as the display is woken up, the notifications will animate from the bottom and proceed to the user-defined setting of how notifications are presented on the Lock Screen (such as count, stack, or list). Apple is also expected to also allow users to enable a notification counter at the bottom of the always-on display.
