What Happens When the iPhone Peaks?

Actually, there is only one feature of the iPhone 14 that I find really intriguing at this time. But first, a question: have we reached smartphone saturation? It’s a standard question at this point, and the gut instinct is typically yes. It seems like we are. But I’ve always maintained, “No, we are not at smartphone saturation. As long as things are getting better each year, even if it’s just a little bit, we will continue to get more processing power, more memory, higher resolutions, more intelligence, and more features. The cameras and fingerprint scanners that are hidden behind displays have recently been improved.

Recently, we have begun to see phones that are folded in half. Consequently, if we define peak smartphone as having reached the point when phones are no longer getting better and it’s flat, then astonishingly, we’re still not there yet, but I think we all share the same sentiment, which is that they have certainly slowed down significantly since their inception. In the 2000s and 2010s, early smartphone technology made tremendous strides. I got the first 8K video, the first HD screen, and the first selfie camera. year, year, we are now receiving small items. It has become slower. It is already the middle of 2022, and the iPhone 13 is eight months old, which means that rumors regarding the next iPhone are already circulating. And one of those reports, one of those supposed specifications, jumps out because it is identical to last year’s. First of all, just so you know, it looks like Apple will stop making the small iPhone and replace it with a bigger version of the base iPhone.


You should. You should. With the iPhone 13 series, the whole line was good, but there were a few things that made it stand out. You should also know that Apple has a hard time telling the difference between Pro iPhones and other iPhones every year so that you have a reason to upgrade. With the iPhone 13 series, the whole line was good, but there were a few things that made it stand out. You should also know that Apple has a hard time telling the difference between Pro iPhones and other iPhones every year, so you have a reason to upgrade. And, if I were betting, I’d say it’ll be the most popular option. Accordingly, the iPhone 14 lineup will reportedly consist of the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. We also know that Apple has a hard time telling the difference between Pro iPhones and other iPhones every year, so you have a reason to upgrade.

We have previously discussed ladder prices in a video. If you haven’t already seen it, I’ll link it below the like button. With the iPhone 13 series, the whole line was good, but there were a few things that made it stand out. For the additional cost, the Pro iPhone had an additional telephoto camera and LiDAR. It was made of stainless steel, had a ProMotion display on the front, more RAM, a bigger maximum storage capacity, and a few other small features like ProRes, etc. Because of this, some of these features are enough to get people to buy the more expensive Pro iPhone. The iPhone 14 is expected to make a bigger difference between the regular iPhone and the Pro iPhone this year. So, take everything I just mentioned regarding the phones from the previous year. In addition, the next Pro iPhone is said to feature a pill-shaped notch for Face ID and the front-facing camera.


Thus, we are finally eliminating the notch, which was merely an aesthetic distinction. It all restores a few of those valuable pixels, but that’s about it. Also, the main camera on the Pro iPhone should be upgraded to 48 megapixels, while the main camera on the standard iPhone should stay at 12 megapixels. At least the Pro will probably keep its 12-megapixel resolution, which will allow for more detail and maybe even better video quality. The most interesting thing about the iPhone 14 is that the chip will only be updated in the pro version. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have a brand-new A16 Bionic chip, but the non-Pro iPhone 14 and 14 Max will have the same A15 Bionic chip as the phone I’m currently using. This is fascinating to me for numerous reasons. Where do I even start? First and foremost, if you have two phones with the ins Is it the same SOC, processor, and specifications released a year apart? I don’t believe we’ve ever witnessed that. I believe that, out of principle, many nerds and techies will have a significant reaction upon hearing this.

I believe I can already anticipate the responses, such as “Why would Apple do such a thing?” How can they sell us essentially the same phone under a different name and pretend it’s something new? So avaricious of them. Such a typical Apple move. ” On the other hand, I am likewise aware of all possible defenses. To begin with, there is a chip shortage, and nobody is immune to it. However, let’s be honest for a moment. If I handed you a phone with an A15 Bionic and an identical phone with an A14 Bionic, how long would it take you to see the difference without performing a benchmark? And it would likely take many months, if not years, to observe a difference. The fact that Apple’s ultra-high-end chips give you years of headroom has been a defining characteristic of these chips. By not upgrading the chip, it may feel as though you are denying these new iPhone 14 customers a year of potential growth. The fact that a brand-new flagship iPhone comes with the same processor as a flagship iPhone from a few years ago is very interesting and pretty unusual. It has simply never occurred. But it does make a lot of sense.


As we’ve seen, the A15 Bionic chip is very strong and lasts a long time. It’s good enough for most regular people. Also, it’s not uncommon for a lower-end phone to have a chip that isn’t quite as good as the others. So, high-end phones will have the best Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 or Snapdragon 865+ or whatever, while lower-end phones will have a less powerful CPU. The conclusion leaves me with one assertion and one query. We are not yet at a point where everyone has a smartphone. I’ve been saying that for a while.  Obviously, if Apple were to sell the same flagship chip, this statement would be weakened. Although there are reports that the A15 Bionic will have two additional gigabytes of RAM, it is not the same chip as last year. However, you get the message that it has been flattening significantly, and it appears that we have reached smartphone saturation.

The only question I have is how Apple is going to present the iPhone 14 as if it’s not essentially the same phone as the iPhone 13. Unless I’m overlooking something, I’m not aware of any major issues: I believe it’s fantastic. Check it out if you’re a creator or fellow video producer. I’ll include a link in the description, but just a brief note on our brand-new video editing plugin. In any case, let me know what you think about how the iPhone 14 is shaping up, particularly in comparison to the iPhone 13 and how the two could separate themselves, save perhaps new color options. Thank you for viewing. I’ll see you in the subsequent post and in the comment area. Peace!
