The iPhone 13 has not yet been released, but rumors about the future iPhone 14 are already leaking into the network. According to a report from investors JP Morgan Chase, future premium models will receive a titanium alloy case manufactured by Foxconn.
Now the iPhone 12 is made of aluminum alloys and surgical steel. Titanium has its advantages and disadvantages: although it is stronger, it is also slightly heavier, and most importantly, prints are more visible on it. This can be seen on Apple Watch Series 6 models made from titanium.
Apple is considering how to avoid fingerprints in its new patents. So far, it is planned to use a special coating for this, but it is not clear whether Cupertino will resort to his development.
In addition, JP Morgan Chase reported that Apple does not plan to release the iPhone 14 mini in 2022. Probably 2021 will be the last chance for the little flagship.
