iPhone 14 fatigue: why the new iPhone isn’t 2022’s most exciting handset

If you follow tech – or the news in general – you’ll probably know that the iPhone 14 is on its way very soon. Apple’s next smartphone is expected to launch in September, and it’ll likely be one of the most talked-about phones of the year… but it’s certainly not the most exciting.

Other phones are coming later this year too, and there are actually some more interesting ones than the iPhone. The Xiaomi 12T, Motorola Razr and Sony Xperia 5 IV (if that comes along) could all be far more exciting, for a few key reasons. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 (opens in new tab) is a bending phone, with more power and functionality than one can shake a stick at, and yet it commanded far less search interest in its launch buildup than the iPhone 14 currently does.
