Hey Apple, the iPhone 14 needs these new features – CNET | Hot Mobile Press

That iPhone 13 and 13 Pro are undoubtedly included The best phones to buy in 2022. They offer an excellent combination of excellent all-round performance and camera capabilities that rival professional cameras. But rumor has it that Apple’s iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are on the way and we anticipate a variety of changes that are possible Theme and camera updates (maybe even an improved selfie camera).

We don’t expect Apple’s next iPhone until the fall – here’s everything you should know about the rumor release date, Price and new design — So Apple still has time to read my wish list and make sure she ticks everything off. Because that’s how it works, right?

In no particular order, here are my highest hopes for the iPhone 14.

No notch on iPhone 14

The notch. It has to go. Yes, it served its purpose as it houses the front-facing camera and the various scanners that allow you to unlock your phone just by looking at it. And while the Notch got a little smaller With the iPhone 13, it’s still a large chunk of screen that’s cut away. So it’s time for a better solution that will really make this screen shine.

Perhaps Apple could perfect under-display cameras that are present but essentially invisible. We’ve seen this on phones from ZTE and Vivo before, but the technology is far from perfect. Then there’s the weird pop-up selfie cameras seen on some Oppo phones, which pop out of the top edge and keep the display uninterrupted.

I’d even compromise with a simple punch-hole solution that fills the front with the display but just pops a few small, less noticeable holes for the cameras to peek through.

In-screen fingerprint scanner and Face ID

Speaking of things hidden in the screen, let’s also place a fingerprint scanner underneath. Apple’s Face ID is working fine for the most part, or at least it did before the pandemic hit. Wearing masks in public is much more common than before the pandemic and before the release of iOS15.4 In March, Face Unlock just didn’t work without also pairing with an Apple Watch. Although now you can Unlock your iPhone while wearing a mask Thanks to the iOS update, I think Apple should bring fingerprint scanning back anyway.

In-screen scanning technology is very common today with affordable phones from OnePlus hiding scanners invisibly in their phones’ displays, and I’ve found them to work pretty much as well as physical scanners that used to be on the back or side of the phone phone. It’s not a step backwards to use this technology – it would simply be an acknowledgment that the world may need a different solution than what we had before – which can be said of so many things.

A larger zoom and sensor for the iPhone 14’s camera

The iPhone 13 Pro’s camera is excellent, taking beautiful pictures in daylight and taking bright, sharp shots in the middle of the night. It’s one of the best cameras you can find on a phone, though i am a photographerso of course I’ll ask for more.

The main thing I want here is a bigger zoom. Yes, Apple increased the zoom level to 3x with the iPhone 13 probut that still pales in comparison to them Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultrahas a whopping 10x zoom. Zoom lenses are excellent tools for finding interesting compositions in your surroundings and getting a closer look at details that would simply be lost when shooting with a wide-angle lens. The 4x zoom from Google is also new Pixel 6 Pro was a jump enough to allow for more telephoto-style images.

Shot with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which also has a 10x zoom, it’s clear to see how much benefit a longer zoom option can have.

But while we’re in front of the camera, I’m always interested in seeing overall quality improvements. So let’s slam in an even bigger image sensor too – maybe a 1-inch size like we’ve seen on Sony’s recent Xperia Pro I, or damn let’s go APS-C or full frame if we’re dreaming. The bigger the sensor, the better the overall image quality and with every generation of camera upgrades we’ve had, the less I have to carry my camera with me.

Maybe with the iPhone 14 I can just sell my DSLR and just shoot with my phone.

USB-C charging to replace Lightning

Apple has now rolled out USB-C to almost all of its products, from the iPads to the MacBooks to the AirPods. The iPhone still uses Apple’s old Lightning connector, making it the only device on my desk that I have to find a different cable for when I want to charge it. All of my Android test phones, my tablets, and even my mouse and keyboard plug into my USB-C power cables, and it makes the iPhone feel a little dated.

But Apple has always had its own charging methods. When everyone else was using Micro-USB, Apple had that massive 32-pin connector first seen it on ipod and that was a pain too. So expecting Apple to keep up with the rest of the industry is about as likely as asking giraffes to maybe try having shorter necks like the rest of us, OK? You too, swans. Donkey, you are fine, you have enough to do.

But what I don’t want is for Apple to remove the port entirely, which was rumored when it launched MagSafe charging. Because then I still need a dedicated charging cable. Also, MagSafe charges slower than the Lightning cable and doesn’t currently support data transfer. You see, it wouldn’t work. So USB-C is it. Many Thanks. At least I can use something now USB-C to Lightning Cable to get at least half the convenience I’m looking for.


Foldable phones are great for fitting a big screen into a smaller body.

A foldable iPhone 14

Foldable phones were the biggest physical design revolution we’ve seen in phones since the advent of the smartphone. But they haven’t really caught on – possibly because of their high prices, but also possibly because they just don’t offer a compelling reason to take advantage of that fold.

But Apple has a decent track record of taking an existing innovation and actually finding a way to make it work well enough to have an impact on our lives. Apple didn’t invent tablets, but the iPad was the first to really show how useful they can be, and now it’s basically the only tablet that matters. And I like foldable phones. They’re fun and allow a large screen, which is great for video and photo editing, to fold in half and be much more pocket-friendly.

So I’d love to see how Apple approaches this device genre and what their team would do with a product that’s halfway between an iPhone and an iPad. Maybe not like that only Phone it starts but maybe as an additional one dubbed the iPhone 14 Fold that sits on top of the iPhone 14 Pro. And although there are only a few Rumors about a foldable iPhone To suggest that this will ever be a real thing, I’d invest good money in a working Apple folding phone concept that’s now sitting somewhere deep in their research labs on this spaceship campus.
