for help Mac rumors Readers, we’ve created a list of five rumors from the past several months about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro that you may not have heard of.

Steam room thermal system

As the iPhone gets more powerful with bigger batteries and more CPU-demanding tasks in iOS, keeping the device at its normal working temperature can be a challenge. According to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the high-end iPhone 2022, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, could adopt a vapor chamber thermal system to help meet the challenge.

The system will help control the temperature of the device under intense tasks and can already be found in smartphones by companies such as Samsung, Razer and LG. Kuo mentioned the news in a broader report about redesigning MacBook Pros in early 2021, so it’s not entirely clear if Apple has changed its plans. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are rumored to be powered by the A16 Bionic chip that features performance and battery improvements.

The main camera on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 57% larger sensor than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to a rumor released earlier this year. According to rumors, the device’s sensor is said to be 1/1.3-inch wide, and 57% larger than the 1/1.65-inch wide-camera sensor on the iPhone 13 Pro‌ and iPhone 13 Pro‌ Max.

A larger sensor will result in sharper details in photos and improved low-light photography. This is just one of several big changes coming to the iPhone 14 Pro’s camera system that will “elevate mobile camera photography to a new level,” according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Apple will also increase the megapixels of the wide camera lens to 48 megapixels, compared to 12 megapixels on current high-end iPhones.

While the rear cameras usually get all the love and attention with every new iPhone, the front camera of the iPhone 14 will get a huge boost in image quality and capabilities. The selfie camera on the iPhone 14 series is said to be an “advanced” camera system that has autofocus capabilities and a wider aperture f/1.9 compared to the f/2.2 of the current iPhone 13.

The wider aperture paired with AF will allow more light to pass through the lens, resulting in better quality overall and better low-light photography. Autofocus will also help with portraits, resulting in a much sharper, clearer, and more detailed bokeh effect with the subject.

Goodbye physical SIM card!

In 2016, Apple became famous for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone. In 2017, Apple removed the physical home button from its flagship iPhone. In 2022, a physical SIM tray could be next. According to a seemingly legitimate warrant I got Mac rumorsApple plans to at least phase out the physical SIM card with select US carriers later this year, likely after the iPhone 14 launch in September.

The timeline indicates that at least some carriers and iPhone 14 models may not have a SIM tray and could rely entirely on the eSIM technology that Apple has been pushing for the past several years. An earlier rumor indicated that the move to eSIM as the new default will happen with the iPhone 15, so the exact timeline is still unknown.

2 TB of storage for all your photos

Apple introduced a new 1TB storage option with the iPhone 13 Pro Max last year, providing customers with a massive amount of on-device storage for all of their photos, videos, and apps. This year, the iPhone 14 Pro Max could be offered in a larger 2TB configuration. If true, it will be the largest iPhone storage ever in history.

More storage comes as Apple builds more advanced photo and video capabilities into the iPhone. For reference, only 60 seconds of 4K video at 60 frames per second takes up about 440MB of storage space. For photographers and cinematographers, the larger storage option gives them the freedom to record and create without the potential constraints of limited storage. The 1TB iPhone 13 Pro Max costs $1,599.


These are just some of the rumors and leaks about the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. For a complete look at everything we know about the upcoming iPhone, check out our roundup of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. What is he most excited about with the new iPhones? Let us know in the comments!
