According to the charts, the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max has a width of 77.58mm, which is slightly smaller than the iPhone 13 Pro Max at 78.1mm. Also, according to charts, ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max will be nearly identical in height to ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max, measuring 160.7mm compared to 160.8mm.

In terms of thickness, the iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max will measure 7.85mm, which is slightly thicker than the current high-end iPhone, which is just 7.65mm. With the ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max, Apple has significantly increased the size of the camera plateau on the back compared to the iPhone 12 Pro. In 2022, Apple is looking to repeat a similar trend.

The iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max’s current camera bump is just 3.60mm tall, according to Apple’s guidelines for accessory makers to follow. According to plans for the iPhone 14 Pro Max shared by Weinbach, the camera bump in the high-end iPhone‌ 2022 will be 4.17mm thick. The camera plateau on the back of the iPhone‌ will also increase in size by about 5% in each dimension, from the current width of 35.01 mm to 36.73 mm and height from 36.24 mm to 38.21 mm.

Today Weinbach also shared sketches of the smaller iPhone 14 Pro‌. According to those plans, the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ is nearly identical to the iPhone 13 Pro‌ at just 71.45mm wide as opposed to 71.5mm. The height of the iPhone 14 Pro‌ is essentially unchanged compared to the iPhone 13 Pro‌, measuring 147.46 mm versus 147.5 mm. Like the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max, the iPhone 14 Pro‌ will also have a more prominent 4.17mm camera bump compared to the current 3.60mm.

Initial renders allegedly ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max, shared days before the iPhone 13 launch by leaker Jon Prosser, revealed a bumper-free design for the camera, but instead showed off lenses, an LED flash and a LiDAR scanner flush with the back glass. Prosser renderings also featured circular volume buttons, reminiscent of the iPhone‌ 4.

Neither of these two design elements apparently will materialize, according to blueprints shared by Weinbach and last week by 91Mobile. However, as always, Apple’s plans can always change, and rumors should be treated with caution.

The rumors regarding the iPhone 14 lineup are still in its infancy; However, rumors confidently suggest that Apple will remove the notch in its high-end iPhone 2022 phones in favor of a circular, pill-shaped cutout.

Previous rumors believed that the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ and iPhone 14 Pro‌ would have a single pill-shaped intrusion at the top of the screen. However, the rumors have since become more consistent in revealing that Apple is planning a circular pill-shaped splitter to be displayed at the top of the screen. According to rumors, the two pieces will not be centered with the screen but instead off-axis, as shown below.

With the ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ and iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max gaining a rounded pill-shaped cutout, the two low-end iPhone 14‌ models are rumored to still have the same notch as the iPhone 13‌. Current information indicates that Apple is looking to further differentiate its “Pro” iPhones from the lower-end models.

Besides giving the high-end variants a new front-view design, they could also be the only ones that get improved performance. Trusted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get the A16 Bionic chip, while the remaining ‌iPhone 14‌ models will retain the A15 chip from ‌iPhone 13‌.

We’re also expecting a wide range of camera improvements across the entire iPhone 14‌ lineup, along with the possibility of a new titanium case option, a potential vapor chamber thermal system on high-end models, and more.
