Apple looks poised to place the letter "i" on the front of the next generation iPhone, if reports are true. The iPhone 14 may shed its famous notch at the top of the screen for a different configuration of sensor cutouts. The so-called "hole-punch and pill" design has been leaked through purported schematics (above) and a photo of a screen component from behind. Rumors indicate Apple is moving away from a full notch design but still needs to accommodate a long list of sensors in front of the iPhone 14.
All iPhone 14 models are rated IP68 under IEC standard 60529 (maximum depth of 6 meters up to 30 minutes). This means the iPhone 14 is safe from small amounts of common liquids such as accidental spills, splashes and rain. The device can also survive being submerged at a maximum depth of 6 meters for up to 30 minutes.
Apple lists all its models after the iPhone 7 as "splash, water, and dust resistant" under laboratory conditions. These conditions are not permanent and "might decrease with normal wear," according to Apple. Liquid damage is not covered by your warranty.
Apple is expected to announce and release its iPhone 14 lineup mid-September 2022. The lineup will most likely include 4 new devices including the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, but nothing has been officially confirmed. The basic 6.1-inch iPhone 14 model will be an affordable continuation of the iPhone 11, 12, and 13, while the basic 6.1-inch Pro model will include a triple camera and advanced features. The Pro models are expected to measure-in at 6.7-inches with the Pro Max will be the model with the bells and whistles out of all 4 models.
Apple stopped including accessories with its products in 2020. AirPods and EarPods are sold separately through apple.com and third party retailers such as Amazon. Power adaptors, Lightning to headphone jack adapters and other accessories are also no longer included with the purchase of an iPhone.
