iPhone 14 in Nigeria – Here’s everything we know so far: Apple is expected to launch the new iPhone 14 in late 2022, but this one got an early start on the rumor mill, with the first bits of news coming in before the iPhone 13 had even made its debut. But, as a release so far out, the little bits we have heard are likely to evolve and change over the coming year. Phones take a long time to build, and conditions like the ongoing pandemic and chip shortage could still force a change in plans before launch, so take everything here with a measure of skepticism.
The iPhone 14 Nigeria is expected to be on the high side if you ask us, however, we are pretty much sure that it will deliver much more than it will cost. Take note that the iPhone 14 has not been launched officially, we are simply giving a clue on how much the iPhone 14 will be priced in the Nigerian market.
The iPhone 14 might be the smallest upgrade we’ve seen Apple introduce in a long time – but the iPhone 14 Pro could be the biggest, as leaks point to the Pro models getting an incredible revamp. (Similar post: Best iPhone 13 Tips And Tricks)
We’ve heard about four new iPhone 14 models in total, with the Pro and Pro Max variants tipped to get new features like an Always-On Display, higher-res rear camera, redesigned front camera cut-out, and more.
Apple iPhone 14 in Nigeria: what you need to know
iPhone 14 release date in Nigeria: There aren’t any release date rumors yet, we’ve heard about the launch event: it could take place on September 13. Expect a release about a week after the debut.
iPhone 14 price in Nigeria: Pricing is unknown, but for reference, the iPhone 13 started at 580,000 Naira / $799 / £779 / AU$1,349, and prices may be similar for the next models.
Design: The iPhone 14 will probably look a lot like the iPhone 13, but the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could get a punch-hole camera instead of a notch. There might also be a big-screen iPhone 14 Max in place of an iPhone 14 mini.
Display: The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro could have 6.1-inch (or 6.06-inch) 1170 x 2532 OLED screens, while the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max could have 6.7-inch (or 6.68-inch) 1284 x 2778 OLED screens. Expect a 120Hz refresh rate on the Pro models and a 60Hz refresh rate on the others.
Camera: The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max could have 48MP main cameras (up from 12MP on the current models). Other specs are unclear, but a triple-lens snapper on all but the standard iPhone 14 is likely, with the basic phone instead having two rear lenses.
Specs: Every iPhone 14 model is expected to have a powerful A16 Bionic chipset, but the Pro models could additionally have 8GB of RAM (up from a maximum of 6GB currently) and up to 2TB of storage (up from a current maximum of 1TB). Some rumors suggest the iPhone 14 and 14 Max could stick with last year’s A15 Bionic though.
Battery: There are claims that the battery capacity could increase, with the phones getting thicker to house their larger batteries. One leak has detailed possible specific capacities, with them all increasing except the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple iOS 16 on iPhone 14
At WWDC 2022, Apple announced iOS 16, the software that will power the iPhone 14 out of the box. There’s a lot packed in this new update — even things that Apple did not spotlight. Headlining the update are updates to the lock screen and Messages app. These will delight users as iOS finally gets almost as customizable as Android with its flexible focus-mode-based lock screen themes, interactive widgets, and repositioned notifications.
Undo send and edit message features will keep you from sending ill-timed messages, and TapBack spam is banished to the ether as Apple improves SMS reactions support. At the same time, system apps like Mail, Maps, and Safari see updates to bring features we’ve seen in Google’s apps — complete with a privacy spin from Apple.
Sharing is also a huge focus for Apple, with SharePlay and iCloud Shared Photo Library coming to the Messages and Photos apps, respectively. Finally, new accessibility features like Live Text will make using an iPhone a lot more comfortable for people with visual impairments.
