Apple iPhone 14 Pro product details

The Apple iPhone 14 Pro is the most exciting iPhone in years. The device features a new design in which the notch has been given a prominent role. Although this year, it is more of a punch-hole than a notch. Also, the camera gets a major upgrade that allows it to bear the Pro title again rightfully.

Dynamic Island: innovation as only Apple can

The Dynamic Island. It sounds nice but let's not overstate what it is. It's a typical Apple solution for an Apple problem. The notch, that huge bite out of the screen, is still there but now sits in a pair of punch-holes. Apple merges the two and sprinkles some magic over it as only Apple can. Thanks to numerous animations, it comes to life and serves as more than just the selfie camera and Face ID components. It grows to give more information about your battery, incoming calls, and music that is currently playing. Click on it, and you will get even more information. It is very well done and looks and feels very natural. Apple shows that software and hardware can blend seamlessly as only Apple can.

First iPhone with 48MP camera

We also see innovation on the camera front. Because finally, Apple is moving away from that outdated 12MP camera and entering the world of 48 megapixels. The sensor has become 65% larger and, combined with software optimizations, as much as 2x more light-sensitive. In addition, the 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera is as much as 3x better at shooting in low light. That's because of the Photonic Engine. A piece of software that gets the best out of the camera hardware. Furthermore, the selfie camera now features auto-focus. This allows it to take sharper self-portraits in a broader range. However, video shoots only up to 4K, just like the iPhone 13 Pro. Overall, a significant upgrade that genuinely makes this iPhone Pro a Pro camera again.

Main Apple iPhone 14 Pro specs

  • 6.1" large Super Retina XDR display with Always-On and high peak brightness
  • 48MP main camera with 12MP ultra-wide-angle and 12MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom
  • 12MP selfie camera placed into innovative Dynamic Island
  • Unrivaled powerful Apple A16 Bionic processor
  • Available in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB of storage
  • Waterproof stainless steel, frosted glass and Ceramic Shield housing
  • 5G support for extra-fast mobile Internet

At last an Always-On screen

Another improvement is the display. Which now (finally) features Always-On. So it no longer turns off, although you can do so if you wish to. Unlike other Always-On displays, the entire screen dims, including the wallpaper. Apple still promises up to one day of battery life even with this feature enabled. Turn your iPhone 14 Pro back on, and the Super Retina XDR screen is even brighter, up to 2x more in broad daylight. It delivers an impressive 2000 nits of peak brightness. And the built-in A16 Bionic processor, something you'll only find in Pro models this year, provides fast performance. No other smartphone can keep up with it. But, unfortunately, so is the price. It is, especially this year, somewhat overpriced.

Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max: notch swapped for Dynamic Island

Phone news ·

As expected, Apple has announced the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max with a punch-hole instead of a notch. However, Apple has devised a unique way to make that punch-hole more dynamic.

It was expected that Apple would get rid of the notch. However, it is not completely gone because Apple's solution is still rather large. After all, the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max has to house the Face ID components and selfie camera. And that requires space. Yet Apple managed to make the True Depth camera 30% smaller.

The Dynamic Island has numerous animations that can grow to show notifications, for example. It can be tapped to get more information and expand to display more control buttons. Hardware and software melt together as only Apple can. Whether it is wise to smudge your selfie camera with greasy fingerprints every time is up to you.

Super Retina XDR and A16 Bionic

Furthermore, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max get a new type of display with Always On functionality, a higher peak brightness of 2000 nits outdoors and with better anti-aliasing. Additional processing power comes from the A16 Bionic chip, built on 4nm for the first time. That makes it more powerful and energy efficient though Apple still promises one-day battery life.

48MP camera sensor

Apple has finally increased the camera resolution. The primary camera now has a 48MP large sensor which is 65% larger than before. This camera can merge four pixels into one for higher light sensitivity (pixel binning) in low light situations. There is also a 12MP ultra-wide angle and 12MP telephoto with up to 3x zoom. Moreover, thanks to the software-based Photonic Engine, all cameras shoot better pictures in the dark.

iPhone 14 Pro price and availability

The Apple iPhone 14 Pro is available for preorder starting Friday, September 9 and should be available September 16. Prices start at $999 for the Pro and $1,099 for the Pro Max. That's the same as last year, although Euro prices are not. Those see a big increase as a result of the dropped exchange rate. The 14 Pro model with 128GB of storage costs a whopping €1,329, the 14 Pro Max starts at €1,479 and goes up to €2,129 for the 1TB version. Available colors include Space Black, Silver, Gold, and Deep Purple.


iPhone 14 I Shape Weibo

Only Apple iPhone 14 Pro gets newly i-shaped notch

Entry-level iPhone 14 sticks with old notch design

Rumors ·

We've already seen a glimpse of Apple's new notch for the upcoming iPhone 14 series. Gone is the notch, the bite out of the upper screen, and instead a double punch-hole is used. A punch-hole in the shape of the letter i. But that seems to be reserved only for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

This means that the iPhone 14 and its bigger brother the iPhone 14 Max will have to make do with the same notch design of the iPhone 13. Apple more often than once equips only Pro models with new techniques, although a screen notch can't really be called new by now.

Evidence for this story comes from a surfaced photo showing screen protectors for the iPhone 14 lineup. Although, of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that this is what will happen. Apple is Apple and everything can change between now and when the iPhone 14 Pro sees the light of day. Although this rumor is not new.

48MP camera and 120Hz screen

We also know about the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max that they feature a new 48MP camera sensor and a 120Hz screen. The iPhone 13 Pros already had such a screen so the number of new features is somewhat limited. It also seems that the 120Hz screen will remain reserved for the Pro models which makes the novelty of the non-Pro models seem very limited.

Rumor: Apple iPhone 14 Pro will be slightly thicker

Rumors ·

We know it all too well; every year we get a little fatter. So does the iPhone, so it seems. According to insider Max Weinbach, the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will be a tad thicker than we're used to.

The iPhone 12 Pro was 7.4 millimeters thick, the iPhone 13 Pro grew to 7.65 millimeters and the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to come in at 7.85 millimeters. Every year a bit thicker but still thinner than the iPhone 11 Pro at 8.1 millimeters.

Apple already stopped the trend of ever-thinner Apple products last year. The new MacBook Pro became (much) thicker and now iPhones are seemingly allowed to gain some weight as well. We applaud it because it means more space for a bigger battery. The render above already shows the iPhone 14 Pro with iPhone 14 Pro Max with its presumably new Face ID cutout.

48MP sensor?

The thickness is not the only thing getting bigger, the camera module is also getting slightly larger. About 15 to 20%, presumably to accommodate the larger 48MP sensor. Currently Apple uses a 12 MP sensor, for years in fact. Since the iPhone 6s Plus that Apple released in 2015.

"Apple iPhone 14 Pro models get Hole-Punch screen"

Rumors ·

This rumor was circulating for a while but now The Elec mentioned it as well: the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models will not get a notch but a Hole-Punch screen. Common practice for Android phones for years, and soon also for Apple.

The notch was always an interim solution, an ugly one for that matter. Nowadays, many manufacturers prefer a punch-hole. Round and usually in the middle while others prefer the corner. Apple seems to be leaning towards the middle for the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

This is what the iPhone 14 Pro could look like

The punch-hole has the advantage of giving you more screen space. It also disappears while using (for most of us anyways), a lot more than with a notch. Apple stayed away from it for a long time because it needs the space for the Face ID components. Where those sit on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is still unclear. It could be underneath the screen, in the bezel but it could also be completely gone. Although the latter option does not seem very plausible.

Not the end of the notch

Apple isn't really saying goodbye to the notch for ever. The entry-level iPhone 14 will likely still get one, and Apple is introducing the notch in their newer MacBook's. It is not very consistent. We are therefore very curious to know how and why Apple partly says goodbye to this recognizable and also controversial design. The source also mentions a 6.7 inch Max model with notch. With the disappearance of the mini model, the 2022 lineup will still include 4 iPhone models.
