In an interesting post by Twitter user DuanRui, we have what is believed to be, another glimpse at the size of the camera in the upcoming iPhone 14 series.
The camera bumps appear to be somewhat larger than that of the iPhone 13 range. It has been speculated that Apple plans to introduce a much larger image sensor this year. The image resolution will be increased from 12 megapixels to 48 megapixels, marking the first change in resolution since the iPhone 6S in 2015.
DuanRui sourced the original image from Weibo. The original source also included this handy comparison shot, highlighting the size difference of the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera bump when compared to the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The AppleTLDR take
These cases are not the first evidence we’ve seen of a larger camera system. For instance, alleged schematics of the iPhone 14 were shared by Max Weinbach back in March.
Given that more and more evidence is pointing towards the same conclusions, it seems a safe bet to say that we’ll see larger cameras this year. Though as with all ‘leaks’, they’re just rumours until legitimised by an official announcement. Worth keeping in mind!
MacBook Air Shipping delays
Today Apple began to take preorders for the brand new MacBook Air with M2 chip. As expected, demand is very high. Right out the gate, custom configure orders were given shipping dates in the first week of August. It seems that only the standard configurations were available with launch day shipping.
Just a couple of hours after preorders went live, shipping dates for the standard configurations have also slipped well into August. The shipping dates are roughly in line with that of custom configurations now. At this stage, you may as well order the configuration that you really want. Rather than choose a standard model in hope of faster shipping dates.
