A series of leaks reveals a host of iPhone 14 secrets, including color options and reverse wireless charging

Written by admin

More information has now surfaced about possible iPhone 14 core specs, the always-on feature and color options for the series.
The huge leak comes from tipster McGuire Wood. He notes that most of the things he has shared are just confirmations of previous reports and not new information.

iPhone 14 Pro A16 Bionic Performance

First, he confirms previous reports that the A16 Bionic chip that will power the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will be based on the 5nm process, so we shouldn’t see drastic performance gains. to expect. This will be the third year in a row that Apple has used 5nm technology for its chips. Meanwhile, the best android phones of 2022 are powered by the more modern 4nm chips.
However, we can still expect some performance gains, and as a previous report had said, these would result from the refined 5nm process, N4P to be exact, and an increased number of transistors.

The phones will also apparently have a better heat management system.

iPhone 14 Pro Always-On Display

Code snippets had previously indicated that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max would have an always-on display, which was in line with reports. It will apparently be easier for Apple to include the feature this year, as the phones will have a more advanced LTPO panel that will be able to lower the refresh rate to 1 Hz.

The latest version of iOS 16 contains hints that Apple is preparing wallpapers that will work hand-in-hand with the always-on mode. Apparently the native wallpapers have a state called Sleep now that has faded elements. This seems to indicate that a dimmed version of wallpapers will be visible in the always-on mode, allowing you to see at-a-glance information even when your device is locked, and help conserve battery life.
Yesterday, MacRumors contributor Steve Moser and developer @rhogelleim have revealed that the Xcode 14 beta will have a lock screen interface that removes details from a widget when the screen wakes up, which seems to suggest that sensitive details are hidden from the lock screen when always-on mode is enabled. and color widgets become semi-transparent. The clock will still be visible.
This sounds similar to how the Apple Watch’s always-on display works, as the wearable shows the watch face when the mode is active, but some visual elements have been removed.

Wood also backed up this leak, adding that the always-on mode feature isn’t enabled by default, but users can enable it by going to the Display & Brightness settings.

iPhone 14 design

Wood has quelled rumors that the iPhone 14 Pro may be made of titanium alloy and says it will stick with stainless steel.

Wood also says that the new pill shaped and cut out arrangement that will replace the notch looks ‘weird’. He also claims that the phone will have stronger MagSafe magnets, which would help accessories stick to it better. He also says that the phone’s wireless charging coil will be able to charge wirelessly, but the feature may be disabled at launch.

He also claims that the iPhone 14 Pro will support maximum charging speeds of 30W, but will drop to 27-25W after the first stage of the charging cycle.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will apparently be available in Green, Purple, Blue, Black, White and Red, and the Pros will come in Green, Purple, Silver, Gold and Graphite . Basically, the pink hue of the iPhone 14 will be replaced by a purple colorway, while the Pro’s Sierra Blue will be retired for a purple hue.

Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 14 family next month alongside new watch models.
