The iPhone 14 is coming soon. In anticipation of Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup, we have come up with the wished-for features we would like to see added to the upcoming iPhone 14 series.
- Some rumors suggest that Apple will be getting rid of the notch from the high-end iPhone 14 Pro model, others say the tech giant may introduce the iPhone 14 Max, a replacement for Apple’s iPhone 13 mini. This year, we put together a wish list of the features we want to see on Apple’s next iPhone.
- Apple first added a ‘notch’ to the high-end iPhone X in 2017, replacing the Home button and TouchID with the TrueDepth camera and FaceID. Despite many calling it an odd choice at first, it was actually a smart move. After all, Apple’s FaceID solution is so much more complex because it uses 3-D mapping technology to get a complete overview of your face.
- Rumors say that the iPhone 14 may feature a pill-shaped hole-punch design for its front-facing camera which is a graceful solution compared to the notch. This way the display provides more information on top of the iPhone 14.
- Apple may abandon USB-C in favor of a port-less iPhone. Given that wireless charging is slower than expected, Apple still needs a dedicated wired charging solution for the iPhone. This is the only option Apple has to offer a USB-C port on the next generation iPhone.
- High-refresh display is not a new feature in smartphones these days. Every mainstream Android smartphone, regardless of price, comes with a 90Hz or 120Hz display. Actually, some gaming smartphones, including Asus’ ROG Phone, have a 144Hz display. The iPhone also has a super crisp Promotion display, but only on its top-end ‘Pro’ model. That needs to change, starting with the iPhone 14 series.
- The iPhone 13 Pro Max is great, taking great shots in both daylight as well as low light. In fact, it is one of the best cameras on a smartphone. One thing that can make the iPhone, especially the top-tier models, exceptional is a large zoom lens. Sure, the iPhone 13 Pro comes with a 3X zoom lens, but it’s in no way comparable to the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s 10X zoom lens.
- Reverse wireless charging would be a nice feature to have on the go, so you can charge your AirPods or Apple Watch by simply placing it on the back of the iPhone. It is still surprising to see why this feature has not been built into the iPhone despite leaks and rumors in the past.
