New Delhi. Tech giant Apple’s suppliers have started shipping parts for the iPhone 14 model, which is expected to launch in September. This information has been given in media reports. MacRumors quoted Digitimes on Monday as saying that the report probably refers to parts being shipped to manufacturers like Foxconn for final assembly of the iPhone 14 model in the next few months.
“The component suppliers have recently started their shipments for the next generation iPhone series to be launched later this year,” the report was quoted as saying. Rumors suggest that major changes are coming to the iPhone 14 Pro model in particular. The notch is expected to be replaced by a new pill-shaped cutout and hole housing the Face ID sensor and front camera.
The new Pro model is expected to feature a faster A16 chip and an upgraded 48MP rear camera lens with support for 8K video recording, while the standard iPhone 14 model is said to retain the A15 chip and 12MP lens. The report says that the rumored headline feature for the iPhone 14 Pro model is Always On Display which is integrated with iOS 16’s new lock screen widget.
The full lineup is expected to include the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max, with the 5.4-inch Mini model being discontinued. Improvements over the standard iPhone 14 model could include increased RAM, an upgraded front camera with autofocus, and Wi-Fi 6e support.
