Metal molds show only two sizes of iPhone 14: 6.1″ regular and 6.7″ Max. We’ve seen CAD-based renderings for iPhone 14 models before. iPhone 14 series before, now it appears the concept is near enough to being final enough to begin manufacturing metal molds that will be used for the production of phones’ cases. Images of these molds are being circulated on Weibo which confirms that Apple has reduced the size options available for its flagship series from three to two.
From the labels they will have the two 6.1″ models, and the two 6.7″ versions. The mini is gone, but a non-Pro Max will be in. In keeping with the traditions, only Pro models will come with another camera at the back, the Telephoto module.

The 14 generation won’t miss out on periscope cameras however, it is said to have the latest main camera, with 48 MP sensors. This will allow for 8K video recording as well as more digital zoom. It is important to note that analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that only Pro models will have the latest sensor.
Camera bumps for the two Pro models are likely to be thicker and larger over the 13.3 Pro pair, which is likely to accommodate the latest camera’s hardware. The models that aren’t Pro may be able to stick with the exact camera hardware however, it’s more than that. We’ve also heard reports that they’ll use an Apple A15 chipset from last year, and Pro models will have the latest A16.
This chip is expected to provide additional processing power to deal with the capture of 8K videos. The biggest changes in this year could be seen on the front side rather than the back. In the case of iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max however it is expected that they will change from a notch design to the dual punch hole design. For the iPhone 14 and 14 Max are likely to remain with the notch design, however they must at least be upgraded to a 120 refresh rates.
