14 pro max wish list, in no particular order:

Hardware/Design:
1) USB-C
2) Faster wired and wireless charging (maybe 45w wired and 20w wireless?)
3) No notch/holepunch display
3) 256gb base storage/8gb ram (for prores mainly as it seems to use a lot of space)
5) Touch ID in power button
6) Change the dimensions of the 14 pro max for it to be narrower so its easier to hold in hand - at the moment its far too wide for it to be a comfortable 1 handed phone!
7) 1440p display

Software:
1) 4K/240fps slow-mo (still stuck on 1080p in 2021!!)
2) Home screen on pro max to be less zoomed in so can actually fit more rows on each page

I'm sure there are a couple other small things as well that can be added, but ill update list as the year goes on. If the 14 Pro Max includes all of these I am 100% getting it

If rumours are to be believed, looks like quite a few of my wishlist is coming true!

Read something about the pro using a titanium alloy instead of stainless steel.
Is it safe to expect the 14pro to be considerably lighter than the 13?

I don’t think so, they are already considerably heavier than their non pro siblings which are aluminium if I recall correctly.

If it's not USB-C I am going to save some money and get the 13 and suck it up...
Yeah as much as I'd like the 14 Pro, the fact that they are talking about next years phone having USB-C, I'm now leaning towards getting a 13 Pro nearer the 14 announcement.

I ended up getting a 13 pro recently after seeing i could still get £175 trade in value for my XR and 0% finance! The Alpine Green is lush, really like the colour!

I'll probably be upgrading from my 12 Pro. Two or three years seems to be a good timeline nowadays, I think once a year is fairly pointless.

USB-C I don't think will happen this year but maybe next. I am sure the notch will be going in the next couple of years. Apple's ambition is clearly to go full screen with under-display camera.

I think it definitely will have as the EU legislation kicks in then, so they can't make a Lighting Version just for outside the EU and a USB-C one for inside the EU.

Which is why I think getting a 13 Pro to save some money, and then get the 16.

They can put a Lightning to USB-C converter in the box and comply with the EU directive according to a chap I know that still works for Evil Corp.

I don't really care whether the port is Lightning or USB-C. I only ever plug something in when I'm driving the Tiguan as it doesn't have wireless CarPlay.
