iPhone 14 series might use titanium chassis

A stronger iPhone is coming. An investor’s report recently released hints at a new chassis material coming for the iPhone 14 series next year. The company’s current flagship models, the iPhone 12 series, are made out of aluminum and stainless steel. If the latest rumor is true, Apple is going for something different for next year.

According to JP Morgan Chase’s China office (via Apple Insider), Apple is reportedly adding titanium as an option for next year’s iPhone 14 series. The lighter metal also has the added benefit of being stronger than the usual metals used for smartphones today. The iPhone 14 series might have a model positioned for durability.

The report, however, doesn’t indicate how the titanium will be used. Besides using it for the chassis, Apple can also use the metal for the phone’s insides. They can also mix it with other metals to make a hybrid alloy.

Of course, because of its premium offering, titanium might end up landing only for the flagship series’ Pro models. Additionally, since the report explicitly mentions Pro models, the upcoming series can potentially still have the same four-model structure that Apple has today. However, as previous reports indicate, the four models likely won’t include an iPhone 14 mini owing to the iPhone 12 mini’s poor performance.

Of note, Apple already uses titanium for the Apple Watch. If anything, the metal isn’t anything new to the company.
