A new set of CAD illustrations claiming to show the upcoming “iPhone 14” appear to back up previous reports that it will retain the design of the iPhone 13 almost entirely.

After the CAD illustrations of the “iPhone 14 Pro”, new images of the “iPhone 14” have appeared, apparently from the same source.

As shown inMySmartPricethe renderings show that the new model is almost indistinguishable from the current iPhone 13. There are no visible differences on the front, for example, with the “iPhone 14” retaining the current Face ID notch, as noted earlier.

The 3D CAD rendering of the back of the phone appears to show a thicker frame around the camera lenses, bringing the side of the bump closer to the edges of the iPhone’s back.

According to the anonymous original source of the renders, the “iPhone 14” will retain the same 6.1-inch screen as the current model. A recent iPhone 14 rumor suggests that it will retain the processor from the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14 Pro will get an upgraded one.

Given Apple’s history of using cases, the CAD drawing is not surprising. The flat iPhone similar to the one used in the iPhone 4 will likely be used for another year or two, before being replaced by something new, if trends continue.

The artwork that has been leaked in the past two days appears to be the same as provided to case makers. Apple will share early data with select partners, in a competitive case manufacturing industry where if you don’t have a product early in an iPhone’s life, you are at a significant disadvantage to your competitors.

Apple’s iPhone 14 lineup is expected to debut in September 2022.
