As you probably already know, Apple is shaking up the iPhone lineup in 2022. Gone is the 5.4-inch iPhone mini to be replaced by a non-Pro 6.7-inch model. We’re calling this phone the iPhone 14 Max, but there’s speculation that Apple will revive the name “Plus” it first used with the iPhone 6 Plus in 2014. That year, Apple released the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5. -inch iPhone 6 Plus.
It’s nowhere near official, but the “iPhone Plus” name is rumored to be returning in 2022
The Pro models also get the ProMotion screens with the 120Hz refresh rate and the triple camera setup with a telephoto lens. The iPhone 14 Pro Max may even have 20% thinner bezels based on renders made with CAD images. Obviously, Apple would rather you spend the extra money to buy one of the more expensive Pro models.
Reverting to using the old iPhone Plus name may help with the potential confusion some consumers may face this year. After all, those who are not smartphone enthusiasts can easily mix up the iPhone 14 Max for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Still, there are ways to easily tell the two 6.7-inch iPhone 14 models apart. For example, there will be no misunderstanding about the price difference between the pair, or the number of cameras on the back of the two 6.7-inch iPhone models. And let’s not forget that this year, the non-Pro models will still have the notch, while the Pro models will sport the new “sideways i” cutouts.
