Huge iPhone 14 leak reveals genius change that could tempt Samsung fans

APPLE'S next iPhone could have a major trump card: boosted battery life.

A new rumour about the iPhone 14 claims a bigger battery may feature on the new model.

Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone later this year, likely in September.

The company is keeping the device under close wraps for now, but it's almost certain that several iPhone 14 models are in development.

Now Taiwan's Daily Economic News claims that Apple is set to include a new and smaller 5G chip in the iPhone 14.

And the report claims that this would allow Apple to feature a large battery in the iPhone 14.

Of course, this rumour hasn't been confirmed – and even if true, Apple's plans could change before the September release.

But battery life has always been a chief complaint among modern smartphone users.

Recent Apple smartphones have no trouble getting through a day of use.

Many gadget fans – including Apple, Samsung, Google and Huawei users – have all professed their desire to have longer-lasting smartphones at times.

Apple is expected to launch four new smartphones in the months leading up to Christmas.

They include the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Sized up

That would be a departure from previous years, with the "Mini" variant abandoned for a new "Max" version of the standard iPhone.

Several key analysts and leakers have suggested this new line-up.

That includes Apple expert and industry watcher Jeff Pu, who said we can expect these four models with no mini variant in an investor note seen by MacRumors.

The same line-up has been shared by TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

Apple's iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini models were smaller versions of the regular iPhone 12 and 13 respectively.

The idea was that some people wanted to the premium performance of an iPhone, but with a smaller screen size.

Complaints that smartphones are too big now regularly crop up online – with users often saying that big iPhones are unsuitable for small hands.

Many hailed the launch of the Mini phones, praising Apple for catering for people who prefer smaller handsets.

But Apple was reportedly plagued by poor sales for its Mini models, and is expected to ditch the variant.

All four new iPhone 14 models are expected to feature ProMotion displays.

Currently these high 120Hz refresh rate screens only appear on Pro models.

They make for smoother animations and scrolling, and are generally better for gaming.

All four models are tipped to feature 6GB of RAM, which is an increase for the lower-end iPhone models.

And the Pro handsets are expected to feature an upgraded 48-megapixel camera on the back of the device.

Finally, the iPhone 14 Pro models are tipped to start at 256GB of storage, up from 128GB.

At the very least, a line-up of four iPhones, all featuring 5G and more powerful chips seems all but certain.
