Case images for the entire iPhone 14 lineup were shared today, boosting expectations about the upcoming design improvements to this year’s new iPhone models.


Photos were shared on Weibo and highlighted by “DuanRui” on Twitter, which depicts ultra-thin third-party cases for the iPhone 14‌, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14‌ Max, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max. Although one of the devices has been called the iPhone‌ “14 Plus”, there is no reliable evidence to suggest that this will be the final designation of the device, as the nickname “14 Max” is likely to run parallel to the “iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max”.

The cases reflect a wide range of plausible design rumors from reputable sources, including CAD renderings and specific dimensions, leaked schematics, photos of accessory production molds, early third-party cases, and more as the collection’s designs become more visible.

The images also include a close-up comparison of the exact molds and case cutouts for the rear camera setup, showing how much growth is expected from the iPhone 13 Pro to the iPhone 14 Pro‌:
