The designs of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro have already been heavily spoiled, and we now have a much better sense of how these differences will appear.
A video by Mac Otakara is responsible for this. They tried existing iPhone 13 covers and screen protectors on 3D-printed iPhone 14 dummies allegedly obtained from internet retailer Alibaba.
It may seem unusual, but it’s a perfect example of how little changes in phone specifications can have a big impact on how devices look and feel.
To begin with, the dummies’ fundamental appearance matches the rumours we’ve already heard. There are four devices on display: two smaller, two larger, and two with two and three rear cameras, respectively.
These are expected to be the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, with the larger 2-camera gadget said to be a new iPhone 14 Max variant. All four phones have flat sides, just like the iPhone 13.
Meanwhile, the two non-Pro variants have the slimmed-down notch design we’ve seen before on the front.
The Pro mock-ups have no notch at all, which may be seen as referring to under-display cameras.
However, speculations indicating that new models will instead include pill and punch-hole-shaped cutouts for the camera and Face ID sensors have a lot more weight.
The iPhone 14 may not be compatible with the current 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max cases, despite using the same sizes as the iPhone 13 series.
The reason for this is the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max’s redesigned camera bump form, which is reported to be getting thicker to make room for new camera hardware like thicker lenses and a 48MP primary sensor.
There’s also an increase in overall thickness for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, which prevents the case from even getting around the phone’s four corners.
