From Mark Gurman's "Apple’s ‘Pro’ Products Will Steal Show at iPhone 14 Launch Event" posted Sunday on Bloomberg News:
After several weeks of anticipation, we’re in the home stretch: Apple Inc.’s biggest event of the year is about three days away. This Wednesday, at a presentation dubbed “Far Out,” the company is set to unveil the iPhone 14 line, a fresh slate of smartwatches and new AirPods.
Last year, I called the iPhone 13 an incremental update to the iPhone 12. It ushered in some camera improvements and added ProMotion to the Pro version, but wasn’t a departure from the earlier model. At the time, I expected the iPhone 14 to bring more significant changes. While that’s still true, I think the enhancements—for the second year in a row—will be more modest than mind-blowing.
The device will continue to come in four variations: two Pro models and two standard versions. But, as I’ve covered exhaustively, there will be no iPhone 14 mini to succeed the iPhone 13 mini. Instead, Apple is focusing on large devices. It’s planning a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The regular iPhone 14 models will get some camera hardware changes, but the most significant upgrades will be reserved for the Pro line—and that could be a theme of the event. The company’s upscale products should generate the most fireworks at Wednesday’s launch, which will include a new high-end Apple Watch and upgraded AirPods Pro earbuds.
Unlike the standard model, the iPhone 14 Pro is poised to get a faster A16 chip, an always-on display and a 48-megapixel rear wide-angle camera system.
My take: Apologies for not posting this yesterday, when it landed. Had a house full of relatives. Still do.
