iPhone 14 Pro’s camera ‘bump’ will be even BIGGER than on previous versions due to a new 48-megapixel Wide camera, rumours suggest

  • Experts claim iPhone 14 models due this autumn will have a larger camera bump
  • The camera bump is the square platform of the top-left hand of the device’s rear 
  • A larger camera bump on Pro and Pro Max will house the 48-megapixel camera

Apple has only just released a new iPhone, but rumours about its next flagship smartphone device, due this autumn, are already rife. 

According to respected leakers, cameras on the most expensive iPhone 14 models will stick out like never before, in order to house a 48-megapixel Wide camera. 

iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have a square camera bump on the rear measuring 1.44-inch by 1.5 inch (36.73mm by 38.21mm), according to leaked specs – slightly larger than on the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. 

The camera lenses themselves will also protrude outwards by 0.16 inches (4.17mm) on both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, compared to 0.14 inches (3.6mm) on the iPhone 13 models, according to the leak. 

Protruding camera components are unpopular with some smartphone fans, as they require protection from an extra chunky smartphone case to stop them from being damaged.

These numbers are larger than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Max.  The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max camera lenses themselves will also protrude outwards by 0.16-inch (4.17mm), the leak claims - again, more than the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max

MEGAPIXELS AND PHOTO QUALITY 

One megapixel is equal to one million pixels – the tiny dots that make up a digital photograph on a display screen.

But it’s a common misconception that the amount of megapixels directly relates to the quality of the image.

While megapixel is of course relevant to image quality, another important factor is the quality of the sensor that is in the camera. 

It’s the sensor that converts light from an image into electrical signals, which are digitalised and collectively saved as a single image.

The leaked specs were posted to Twitter this month by Max Weinbach, a Connecticut-based tech enthusiast and a writer for XDA Developers.

They show blueprints for both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, including the lengths of the camera bump – the square platform on the top left of the smartphones’ rear that houses the lenses.

The dimensions of the camera bump will be marginally larger on the iPhone 14 Pro Max than the iPhone 14 Pro – by mere fractions of a millimetre, the blueprints show.  

Weinbach’s claims were also corroborated by Ming-Chi Kuo, another Apple product predictor based in Taiwan.

Kuo said that the main reason for the larger and more prominent camera bump’ is due to ‘upgrading the rear camera to 48MP [megapixels]’, which will offer a hefty update over the iPhone 13’s 12MP camera system. 

One megapixel is equal to one million pixels – the tiny dots that make up a digital photograph on a display screen. 

More pixels in an image means more pixels per inch (PPI), resulting in more pixel information, which tends to create a more detailed image (although more megapixels doesn’t necessarily equal better photos).

iPhone 14 is expected to be released this autumn, in four different variations – a standard model, a Mini, Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. 

The 48MP camera is expected to come with the iPhone Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max (the two more expensive models) but not the standard model or Mini. 

According to MacRumors, the 48MP camera system will allow for 8K video recording, offering a significant upgrade 4K video recording capabilities. 

Taiwanese research firm TrendForce already predicted back in January that a 48MP primary camera is expected to be introduced to the iPhone 14 Pro series that Apple will release this year, likely in September.    

Apple has already recently released a new iPhone this month – the third-generation ‘budget’ iPhone SE starting at £419 in the UK and $429 in the US.

It’s equipped with the Apple A15 Bionic chip, found in the iPhone 13, a 12 megapixel camera, and 5G connectivity. 

It also recently released green versions of its iPhone 13, the firm’s current flagship that was originally released in September last year. 

Shortly after the green iPhone versions were revealed, rival tech firm Samsung mocked Apple by suggesting they’re a similar shade to its own Galaxy S22 Ultra.

WILL APPLE FINALLY DITCH THE NOTCH IN THE IPHONE 14? LEAKED SCHEMATIC REVEALS HOW TWO CUT-OUTS COULD REPLACE THE UNSIGHTLY BLACK BAR HOUSING THE FRONT-FACING CAMERAS 

Since it was introduced in the iPhone X back in 2017, the ‘notch’ has been one of the most-hated features in Apple’s smartphones.

The unsightly black bar houses the front-facing cameras, but eats away into the display, and is particularly obstructive while watching films or playing games.

Now, a new leak suggests that Apple could finally be ditching the notch in favour of two cut-outs at the top of the screen.

While Apple is yet to confirm or deny the news, a leaked schematic posted to Chinese social media site Weibo shows what the new feature could look like. 

The schematic was spotted by 9to5Mac, and appears to show two cut-outs that will replace the notch.
