Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said on Sunday morning the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max camera bump is going to get larger this year.
Kuo was responding to a 9to5Mac story about supposedly leaked iPhone 14 Pro schematics (via @MaxWinebach), which detailed a larger camera bump.

“The main reason for the larger and more prominent rear-camera bump of the 14 Pro/Pro Max is upgrading the wide camera to 48MP (vs. 13 Pro/Pro Max’s 12MP),” said Kuo. “The diagonal length of 48MP CIS will increase by 25-35%, and the height of 48MP’s 7P lens will increase by 5-10%,” said the analyst.

So the camera bump in the iPhone 14 Pro line will get larger because of the increased size of the expected 48-megapixel camera sensor, plus a height increase of a new lens.
Apple is expected to debut its new iPhone 14 lineup this fall, with rumours claiming the ‘mini’ version of the phone will be axed, while a new hole and pill cutout will debut on the front, seen as a shake-up to the way Face ID’s design will be implemented.
