Yet, Even the iPhone 13 isn’t out, but rumor is that the iPhone 14 will bring some high-end upgrades, including at least one model with a chassis made of titanium alloy. The news comes via a JP Morgan Chase analyst report. This new report says that we can expect to see the first-ever titanium iPhone body in 2022.
JP Morgan Chase says the iPhone 14 Pro will be made from a titanium alloy. While other models of iPhone 14 will have a stainless steel or aluminum chassis.
According to the latest report from JPMorgan Chase, Apple will launch the iPhone 14 series (unnamed) in the second half of 2022. And the specification upgrade will be greater than that of the iPhone 13 series (unnamed). It is said that the body of the high-end iPhone 14 series (or Pro) is expected to be made of titanium alloy and will be exclusively supplied by Hon Hai. In addition, other models in the iPhone 14 series will use aluminum alloy and stainless steel frames.iPhone wired
Titanium in iPhone 14
Titanium alloys is the mix of aluminum, nickel, vanadium and chromium material. The material is three to four times stronger and lighter than stainless steel. So this would potentially make the iPhone light. Titanium is matte in look, but the company was taken a patent for the metal with a semi-gloss finish.
Apple already using the material in the Apple Watch Edition. So a titanium in iPhone 14 body wouldn’t be a surprise. Titanium was used in place of the ceramic body in the watch.
There have been a number of other reports circulating in the market about next year’s iPhone lineup. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said back in March that the biggest visual change would become in the form of a punch-hole screen. Apple is also working on under-display Touch ID.
