iPhone 14 dummies hands-on video confirms major design leaks

In a week, Apple will reveal a host of big software updates for its most popular devices at WWDC 2022. We’re more interested in seeing what the company has in store for iOS 16, like a rumored always-on display. There’s also a chance we’ll see new hardware at the event, but Apple is saving all of its biggest announcements for the fall. That said, there may not be much left to reveal if these iPhone 14 leaks don’t stop popping up.

iPhone 14 leaks continue ahead of WWDC 2022

On Monday morning, Apple leaker Sonny Dickson shared a video featuring dummy units of the four upcoming iPhone 14 models. It’s just a short, grainy video, so don’t expect to get anything new if you’ve been keeping up. with all the leaks of the iPhone 14.

Speaking of leaks, these dummies seem to sync up with everything we’ve heard about the next iPhone. It’s hard to tell with the screen off, but the notch doesn’t appear to be present on the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max. Countless rumors and reports claim that Apple will replace its notch with two small cutouts on the Pro models this year. One of the cutouts will be pill-shaped and the other will be a hole punch.

The notch will remain for another year on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max. This will likely be the last time we see the notch on a flagship iPhone.

Moving on to the back of the phone, the design looks largely unchanged from last year. There were rumors that Apple would remove the camera bump by making the iPhone 14 a bit thicker, but the most recent leaks have seemingly debunked those rumors.

It’s not the redesign we expected.

As the evidence continues to mount, it has become increasingly clear that the iPhone 14 will not be the big redesign that some consumers were hoping for. Except for the “pill and hole” replacing the notch on the Pro models, these iPhones look virtually identical to the iPhone 13. So when will the iPhone get the makeover many Apple fans have been waiting for?

In a tweet last month, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would install under-display Face ID in 2024. This would make the iPhone 16 Pro the first “true full-screen iPhone,” according to Kuo. If you’re waiting for a new iPhone design to upgrade from whatever model you have, you may be waiting a while.
