The year 2022 has flown by in the blink of an eye; this year, Apple released a new iPhone SE in March, followed by iOS16 in June, and the iPhone 14 series in September. The iPhone 14 series will be released in September, as expected, and the screen upgrade has become an unavoidable trend, according to online real-world information. I didn’t expect the iPhone 14 ProMax’s foreign media release to astound so many people, with its bold horizontal row of lenses and all the pixel upgrades. The perforated capsule-shaped screen, which supports 2K resolution and 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, has a different design effect.
Apple’s new machines have always been conservatively designed in recent years. Nonetheless, Apple phones with a curved screen have done exceptionally well in recent years, filling the gap left by Huawei in the flagship phone market. However, the iPhone 14ProMax is clearly prepared this time; the screen alone has been upgraded. To know that the new Apple machine, which attracted a lot of cell phone manufacturers to imitate with its last big upgrade, and this time using the digging hole capsule shape, will not set off another share of the replacement boom? In fact, Apple is not without innovation, just cautious to keep new machine sales stable.
Apple’s strategy is that a major upgrade every few years will entice a large number of fruit fans to switch. This time, the iPhone 14 ProMax features a brand new screen with 2K resolution and 120Hz adaptive refresh rate, which is quite appealing.
Apple phones are full of surprises when it comes to camera features every year. Smart Intelligent HDR, Photo Fusion technology, and other enhancements are visible to the naked eye. For the first time, the iPhone 13 ProMax released last year added macro shooting and movie mode, giving fruit lovers more options when it comes to taking photos.
The iPhone 14 ProMax is even more opulent this time, with the lens switching from a bath to a horizontal shape. The frame is designed right at the top of the back of the body, as seen in the concept image, and is also equipped with a lens. This lens is all 20 megapixels, possibly in preparation for the future 48 megapixel main lens, which is expected to support 8K video recording. The rear lens aperture size on the iPhone 14ProMax is the same, and it supports 3 to 5 times isometric lossless optical zoom shooting. In addition, the iPhone14ProMax has enabled 4K recording in movie mode, as well as photo and video recording. This is a significant upgrade.
In terms of processor, the iPhone 14ProMax will be equipped with an A16 bionic chip with 6 cores and TSMC’s 4nm process. However, there are rumors that the standard version of the iPhone 14 will only be equipped with an A15 processor, which is similar to the iPhone 13PoMax, and the GPU will be all 6 cores, in order to encourage users to buy the high end. The standard version’s price remains unchanged, while the iPhone 14 ProMax will cost a few hundred dollars more than the iPhone 13 ProMax. In addition, the battery capacity and charging speed will not change. I’m not sure if a price hike like this will be acceptable to fruit lovers.
The front and back body changes on the iPhone 14 ProMax are significant, arguably the most significant in the last five years. Whether it’s the function or the design, each has a distinct impact. Do you think that if Apple releases such a model, it will trigger a wave of replacement machines? Please share your thoughts in the comments section!
