What will the iPhone 14 be like? It’s a question many people are understandably wondering — and, if you are planning to soon buy a new iPhone just for business purposes, you could currently be indecisive about whether to purchase an already-available model or wait for a new iPhone model to arrive on shelves.

With Apple traditionally announcing new flagship iPhones in September, that’s when we can expect the Cupertino firm to unveil what will presumably be called the iPhone 14. So, what is it likely to be like?

Will There Be a ‘Mini’ iPhone 14?

Sadly not, according to rumor. Though the 2020’s iPhone 12 series and 2021’s iPhone 13 series have each included ‘mini’ models with 5.4-inch screen size, Apple looks set to ax this particular option with the iPhone 14 due to poor sales of the previous ‘mini’ models, as MacRumors has reported.

The iPhone 14 will be available in just two display sizes: 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches. The former will be used for the standard iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro, while the latter is anticipated with the iPhone 14 Max and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

All of this news could be somewhat inconsequential for you, as you might like to regularly use your work phone for on-the-go productivity, where a larger screen can naturally prove particularly helpful.

Will the iPhone 14 Look Much Different from the iPhone 13?

The short answer is likely ‘no’, though you could still notice a few changes. For example, the Pro models are said to feature — in place of the divisive ‘notch’ at the top of the display panel — a circular hole-punch cutout and a pill-shaped cutout housing, respectively, the camera and key Face ID components.

Face ID is, of course, the facial recognition system that Apple has used for top-of-the-line iPhones since 2017. While Face ID should be staying on all models, the Pro units are said to be in line for camera enhancements — including the additions of 48-megapixel cameras and 8K video recording capabilities.

Perhaps unsurprisingly in light of this, the camera bumps of the iPhone 14 models are rumored to be roughly 5% larger — meaning that any case you already have for an existing iPhone is unlikely to fit any of the iPhone 14 models. Still, you could be content with this sacrifice if your work involves a lot of photography.

Could the iPhone 14 Models Be More Expensive?

Alas, it looks like they indeed could be. Tom’s Guide reports one leak suggesting that the iPhone 14 Pro will cost $1,099 — $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro’s price tag. While the standard iPhone 14 is expected to keep the iPhone 13’s $799 price, this is $100 higher than what is charged for the iPhone 13 mini.

So, you should consider how long you would likely keep an iPhone 14 if you do purchase it. Fortunately, when used with business-friendly telecom services like Gamma Mobile (https://www.gamma.co.uk/products/gamma-mobile/), your iPhone 14 could stay highly functional for quite a while to come.
