Apple iPhone 14 leaks have been coming in hard and fast over the past few months. From the display and RAM details to the hole-punch design and processor, a lot has been revealed already. With the iPhone 14 series launch expected in September, there’s still plenty of time left for more information to seep through the cracks. In the latest note from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, we learn more about the iPhone 14 models with regards to their periscope camera and biometrics.

Will iPhone 14 come with under-display Touch ID?

Kuo suggests that the upcoming iPhone will miss out on the periscope camera. However, the 2023 iPhone 15 models might get the periscope zoom lens. And according to the analyst, the iPhones are not getting the under-display fingerprint anytime before 2025. That understands why Apple implemented the “Face ID with Mask” feature even after the mask was made not mandatory in many states in the United States.

iPhone 14 Pro

Remember a rumour mentioning the iPhone 14 Pro models will have a 48MP camera? That might be true, as Kuo explains the reason behind the larger camera bump on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. Kuo says that the camera bump on iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is more prominent than on their predecessors because of the increased diagonal length and height of the 48MP sensor. The 48MP 7P lens will be 5-35 percent larger than the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max’s 12MP lens.

So, now we are getting a hole-punch display, a new 48MP camera, and a new chipset. But that might be restricted to the iPhone 14 Pro models. Earlier this month, Kuo suggested that the iPhone 14 Pro models might be the only ones to get the new A16 Bionic, while the non-Pro models will stick to the current generation A15 Bionic chips. The standard models are also not expected to get any major redesign this year, and we don’t expect them to come with a ProMotion display either. And, Apple is killing the ‘mini’ iPhone for the ‘Max.’
