As previously reported, the iPhone 14 Pro/Max will receive a new A16 processor based on TSMC's 5nm process. Performance is expected to improve incrementally.
"A16 in the 14 Pro/Pro Max have been seen testing at a few percentage points higher on test boards due to a better heat management system."
New for this year is an "Always On Display" mode that will look similar to Nightstand mode on the Apple Watch. This mode will use the same complications as the lock screen and will not be enabled by default. Users may be asked if they'd like to enable it during setup and it can be manually enabled under Display & Brightness > Display > Always On Display.
Will only follow the lockscreen widgets and have no way to make them different. They're going for continuity here so the complications are a mirror of the lockscreen.
Despite making some prototype housing options out of titanium, the company allegedly found them hard to work with and determined they were not a cost effective option. Instead, the iPhone 14 will use the same body material and introduce a new purple color (#574f6f) that could replace pink for the iPhone 14 and Sierra Blue for the iPhone 14 Pro. The handset will continue to use Gorilla Glass Victus and could get minor improvements to its wireless charging coil and magnets.
Gorilla Glass Victus, no major changes there. Wireless charging coil will have the ability to do proper RWC but not at launch. iOS 16.5 is my best estimate. MagSafe magnets are slightly stronger, nothing major. New MagSafe battery is larger so it's heavier.
Finally, wired charging speeds are expected to improve.
30W charging for 30W or higher bricks for the first bit of a charge cycle. Drops down to 27-25W (depends on heat) so results may vary. Note this wired. Wireless is staying the same.
Apple is widely expected to unveil four new iPhone 14 models this fall including an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It's believed the iPhone 14 Pro will get an A16 processor, a 'pill + hole' cutout design, a 48MP wide camera, a larger camera bump, an autofocus selfie camera, and rounder corners. The iPhone 14 is expected to keep the A15 processor and current notch but get 6GB of RAM.
