Rumors and leaks related to the presence of the iPhone 14 have been around for a long time. And this time, it’s Mark Gurman from Bloomberg who leaks the latest information regarding the iPhone and iOS 16. Next week, Apple will hold the WWDC 2022 (Worldwide Developer Conference). The event will be held on a hybrid basis where Apple will introduce the latest OS versions ranging from macOS, iOS to watchOS. And reportedly, the MacBook Air M2 will also appear later. Although the rumors are not as strong as iOS 16. Reportedly, there will be quite a lot of changes to the appearance of iOS 16, especially the front screen display.
AOD on iOS 16 Utilizing AMOLED Type Power Saving
Mark said, iOS 16 will bring a new lock screen wallpaper with features such as widgets. Previously, iPhone users with iOS currently had to swipe left to access the widget. Not only that, but the always-on display feature will also be available.
In addition to Apple’s chipset which is indeed power efficient, the absence of the AOD feature up to the iPhone 13 Pro Max of course also contributes to battery life. Later, Apple will be confident to present this feature with iOS 16 without fear of draining too much power. This is thanks to the use of the LTPO panel on the iPhone 14 Pro Series. It is still unknown whether only the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max support AOD or will it be downgraded to the 13 Pro Series as well. Apple is the first to use the LTPO AMOLED panel type for the Apple Watch Series 5.
iPhone 14 Will Have a 48MP Camera
Previously, Mark also mentioned several upgrade features that are exclusive to the iPhone 14 Series. Some of them are a new front camera system, Apple A16 processor, and a 48MP main sensor on the back for 8K video recording.
From the rumors circulating, it is possible that the non-Pro version of the iPhone 14 will use the same chipset as the iPhone 13 Series. Also, the Mini version will be omitted. Instead, there will only be iPhone 14 & 14 Max. As if to confirm that consumers do prefer a large screen over comfortable one-handed use.
In addition to the iPhone 14 Series, other information that is quite awaited at WWDC 2022 is the appearance of the latest MacBook Air with the Apple M2 chipset. The M1 generation itself has been released in 2020 with the same design as the previous generation.
