This iPhone 14 concept puts a screen on the back for displaying battery life and more
What you need to know
- A new concept images what it would be like to put a screen on the back of an iPhone.
- The concept also shows some new colored MagSafe Wireless Chargers.
Apple hasn't taken the wraps off iPhone 13 yet but that was never going to stop the concept artists looking into 2022 and iPhone 14. A new concept does exactly that, imagining how cool it could be if Apple added a new rear-facing screen to the mix.
Shared to YouTube by ConceptsiPhone, the concept shows a familiar form factor but with a new screen on the back. It's wrapped around the camera bump and displays information like the battery situation for connected devices like AirPods and Apple Watches. It also offers a new screen that could be used when trying to locate items via an AirTag, too.
Check it out.
I'm still not sure how this would actually work, but I would imagine Apple could use iPhone's many sensors to work out which way up a screen is facing. Not that any of this matters – this is one concept that I can't imagine Apple bringing to market any time soon. If at all, for that matter.
Still, if you can't wait for iPhone 13, let alone iPhone 14, the current line of handsets is still pretty stellar and includes the best iPhone Apple has ever made.

What a waste. How many people actually look at the back of their phone more than the front?
