The upcoming Apple iPhone 14 series smartphones have become the centre of attraction now that iPhone SE 3 has been launched. The iPhone 14 series has been all over the internet for the past few weeks as more and more leaks and rumors keep surfacing online. In the latest development by well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are rumoured to have a bigger 48-megapixel camera sensor and the rear camera bump is likely to get very much more pronounced. The Pro and Pro Max models of the next-generation iPhone will expand the bump, suggests Apple analyst Kuo. Explaining the reason in a tweet, he wrote, “The main reason for the larger and more prominent rear-camera bump of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will likely be upgrading the wide camera to 48MP (vs. 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max's 12MP). The diagonal length of 48MP CIS will increase by 25-35%, and the height of 48MP's 7P lens will increase by 5-10%.”

However, Kuo's prediction clashes with earlier reports suggesting that the redesign for the forthcoming flagship phones might ditch the chunky camera bump, which houses two or three lenses depending on the model. A tipster earlier predicted that iPhone 14 would ditch the bump entirely, which could mean a thicker chassis for camera components.

If the reports are believed to be true, then it will be a significant change by Apple as the iPhone 14 will shift from a 12-megapixel camera sensor to a 48-megapixel primary sensor.

Not only the camera bump, but the tech giant is also rumored to bring significant changes from design to internal specifications in iPhone 14 and its Pro models. For example, earlier a few reports has suggested that the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will be powered by the Apple A16 SoC while the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be powered by the A16 Pro processor. However, the jury is still out on that.
