Huge iPhone 14 leak hints at new colour for upcoming handset that will divide fans

THE IPHONE 14 isn't out for months but rumours are already circulating about a snazzy new colour option.

According to one leaker, Apple's latest mobile will come in PURPLE as well as more traditional hues such as black and white.

The move would mark quite the departure for the California tech titan, which typically sticks to neutral colour options for its devices.

It has previous form in offering brighter hues, however, having launched purple, red and yellow handsets in the past.

The flashier options typically divide fans, with some falling in love and others turning their noses up at them.

Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone later this year, likely in September.

The company is keeping the device under close wraps for now, but it's almost certain that several iPhone 14 models are in development.

They're rumoured to be called the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Max Pro.

In short, the "Max" models are said to have a larger display and the "Pro" models have better specs, including a brand new A15 chip.

According to a post on Chinese social media platform Weibo seen by AppleTrack, all four models will come in the new purple hue.

The post, from a self-proclaimed Apple insider, claimed that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will supposedly be available in black, white, blue, red, and purple.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will allegedly be available in graphite, gold, silver, and purple.

There's no way to verify the identity of the leaker and the Weibo post has since been deleted, according to AppleTrack.

That means you should take their claims with a generous pinch of salt.

However, Apple released a purple version of the iPhone 12 last year, meaning the rumour is far from outlandish.

Apple is expected to launch four new smartphones in the months leading up to Christmas.

They include the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

That would be a departure from previous years, with the "Mini" variant abandoned for a new "Max" version of the standard iPhone.

Several key analysts and leakers have suggested this new line-up.

That includes Apple expert and industry watcher Jeff Pu, who said we can expect these four models with no mini variant in an investor note seen by MacRumors.

The same line-up has been shared by TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

All four new iPhone 14 models are expected to feature ProMotion displays.

Currently these high 120Hz refresh rate screens only appear on Pro models.

They make for smoother animations and scrolling, and are generally better for gaming.

All four models are tipped to feature 6GB of RAM, which is an increase for the lower-end iPhone models.

And the Pro handsets are expected to feature an upgraded 48-megapixel camera on the back of the device.

Finally, the iPhone 14 Pro models are tipped to start at 256GB of storage, up from 128GB.

At the very least, a line-up of four iPhones, all featuring 5G and more powerful chips seems all but certain.
