Apple recently released iPhone 13 Pro models with storage capacities of up to 1TB, and now a new report claims that the next flagship series, the iPhone 14 line-up, will have storage capacities of up to 2TB.
iPhone 14 2TB storage rumors
According to MyDrivers, Apple will use QLC flash storage for next year’s iPhone and will increase capacity to 2TB thanks to the newer storage technology.
According to the report, the 14 series will have double the maximum storage available on this year’s iPhone 13 lineup. This 2TB storage variant, however, is likely to be limited to iPhone 14 Pro models.
Top-tier “iPhone 14” models, according to renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, will use a 1/1.3-inch 48MP CMOS image sensor for wide-angle camera module duties.
“We believe that the new 2H2022 iPhone may support direct 48MP output and 12MP (four cells merge output mode) output simultaneously,” Kuo said in a note to investors.
“With 12MP output, the CIS pixel size of the new 2H22 iPhone increases to about 2.5 um, which is significantly larger than the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13, and larger than existing Android phones, and close to the DSC level,” he added.
Typically, the company focuses first on wide-angle camera technology, with the benefits trickling down to telephoto and ultra-wide angle systems in subsequent years.
To maximise pixel size and capitalise on the hardware’s light-gathering capabilities, the sensor could support hybrid operating modes.
The upcoming iPhone is expected to run iOS 16 and include a 3,815mAh battery with fast-charging support.
