The iPhone 14 Pro Max will cost more for its amazing camera
我預測兩款 iPhone 14 Pro 的超廣角相機將升級到 1.4µm (vs. iPhone 13 Pro的1.0µm)。 CIS (影像感測器)、VCM (音圈馬達)、CCM次升級中單價漲幅較大，分別為70%、45%與40%左右，其他零部件漲價幅度有限。

He has been the renowned analyst Ming Chi Kuowhich has revealed the exact characteristics of the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera, making it clear that the price increase of this model is due to the components that make up the different sensors of its camera module.
In this way, in the first place, Apple will bet on a sensor with pixels 40% larger than in the previous generation, so they will be able to capture much more light in low-light environments. On the other hand, we went from having a 12-megapixel main sensor to a 48-megapixel one that will also allow you to record videos in 8K resolution.
We talk about components from top-tier firms such as Sony, so the photographic section of the iPhone 14 Pro models will be up to the most demanding users. Although at the cost of increasing the price of these models.
Regarding the rest of the news, The new iPhone 14 is expected to have 6 GB of RAM in all versions, although the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will not have the most current version (LPDDR5) that the Pro versions will have.
Also a noticeable change in the processor is expected, since the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will debut the new Apple Bionic A16 processor, while the rest of the models will continue to rely on the same A15 processor from previous generations.
In any case, now all we can do is wait for the presentation of the iPhone 14, scheduled for September 7, to see what the manufacturer surprises us with.
