Only iPhone 14 Pro And Pro Max Will Feature The New 48MP Camera
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 refresh will bring with it a new 48-megapixel camera, according to various reports. But Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that the camera upgrade will be reserved for Apple’s high-end models.
Gurman was writing via his weekly Power On newsletter when he made the claim, saying that he has been told that it’ll be the Pro models taking advantage of a camera upgrade.
From what I’m told, the new 48-megapixel sensor for the wide-angle camera (which is essentially the “main” camera on the iPhone) will be exclusive to the Pro models. The regular iPhone 14 line will stick to a 12-megapixel shooter.
Those buying an iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Max will have to make do with the standard 12-megapixel camera that has been used in recent years.
The same report also notes that Apple will only put the latest A16 processor in the two Pro models, leaving the current A15 to take the strain on the lower-end versions. Quite what that will mean in terms of performance remains to be seen, but few have accused the current A15 Bionic — the chip that powers Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup — of being slow at any point since it arrived last year.
Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone 14 lineup in or around September of this year.
