With a probable design that differs noticeably from the iPhone 13 Pro, Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro is expected to be the device that shakes up the iPhone lineup. The demise of the notch to the comeback of Touch ID have all been mentioned in the speculations thus far.

Even if the iPhone 13 Pro is excellent, it doesn’t necessarily represent a significant improvement over the model it replaces. Additionally, since the release of the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone hasn’t advanced significantly.

It appears that Apple will need to bring its A-game to the iPhone 14 Pro in the face of fierce competition from devices like the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 6 Pro; our comparison of the iPhone 14 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has more information on that conflict.

Fortunately, based on the leaks and speculations we have heard thus far, Apple’s next Pro model may be doing that. And the iPhone 14 Pro could differ significantly from the other iPhone 14 models in several significant ways.

Here is everything we currently know about the iPhone 14 Pro and what we anticipate learning.

iPhone 14 Pro rumored release date and price

Based on all the current speculations, we predict the iPhone 14 series will debut on September 13.

Pre-orders for the iPhone 14 range are then anticipated to open the Friday after the Apple event, September 16, with the devices likely going on sale a week later, on Friday, September 23. This would occur ten days following the alleged Apple event.

somewhat trustworthy leaker Leaks Three of the four iPhone 14 versions, according to ApplePro, are expected to see price increases, but this is undoubtedly just a rumor.

If accurate, the iPhone 14 Pro would cost $1,099, which is $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro’s starting price of $999. And the price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max may rise similarly, reaching $1,199. Anyone trying to obtain a high-end next-generation iPhone 14 would undoubtedly feel the pinch from this somewhat large jump in the launch pricing.

The normal iPhone 14 Pro is anticipated to cost $1,099, according to Shadow Leak, another leaker (opens in new tab).

Check out our early comparison of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro to prepare for their most significant differences in years.

iPhone 14 Pro design 

The iPhone 14 Pro may undergo significant alterations, according to a set of renderings presented by tipster Jon Prosser that are purportedly based on leaked information.

Three cameras are seen flush with the rear of the iPhone 14 Pro in Prosser’s renderings. However, if that sounds appealing, you could be let down by other competing schematics, which depict the iPhone 14 Pro versions as resembling their iPhone 13 predecessors. The iPhone 14 Pro reportedly features a larger version of the elevated camera array and is 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

The camera module is expected to grow in size, according to some rumors. This is due to the necessity for a bigger module to accommodate a 48MP camera, claims reputable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In order to better match the curved edges of the new module, according to another source, the corners of the iPhone 14 Pro (but not the Pro Max) will be rounded.

The elimination of the now-famous display notch is one of the other significant design improvements suggested by several iPhone 14 Pro rumors. Display researcher Ross Young anticipates Apple will provide both a punch hole and a pill-shaped cutout for Face ID, or essentially two holes. According to speculations from EverythingApplePro, this design appears to be finalized at this point.

The iPhone 14 Pro’s potential design is seen in the supposed schematic posted by a leaker on Weibo below. However, we’re not certain if this would be an upgrade over the notch.

With what looks to be a supply chain leak photo displaying the display panels for each of the four iPhone 14 versions, these claims gained more credibility.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max appear to be prepared to do away with the notch in favor of a mix of a pill-shaped cutout and what looks to be a punch-hole camera or sensor, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max appear likely to preserve the display notch.

The prospect of an iPhone 14 Pro with twin camera cutouts has once again been pounded home by young and analytical company Display Supply Chain Consultants. However, the normal iPhone won’t have a notch-free display for another year, which adds to the allure of going pro with the next iPhone.

We now have yet another preview of what the iPhone 14 Pro may look like with a notch-less design according to a new set of CAD renderings. The rather asymmetrical appearance appears quite un-Apple, but it is unmistakably theirs.

Some iPhone 14 mock-ups produced by Alibaba and published by Macotakara give us the greatest idea of what all the design revisions have resulted in. In the case of the iPhone 14 models, in addition to the two cutouts on the front display, you can also see the larger camera module. According to Macotakara, this larger module prevents iPhone 13 Pro covers from fitting the iPhone 14 Pro.

In a video on iUpdate, further mockups of all four iPhone 14 versions can be shown (opens in new tab). In this one, the camera module on the iPhone 14 Pro dummy is directly compared to the one on the iPhone 13 Pro.

Early on, there were some suggestions that Touch ID would come back as an in-display fingerprint scanner. On how likely this is, though, the jury is still out. For a few more years, according to analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, there won’t be an iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID hidden behind the display. This would have been frustrating because having a Face ID option is incredibly helpful in these times of mask usage.

But with iOS 15.4, Apple has improved Face ID so that it can identify a genuine user even while they are hiding their identity. It functions extremely well, indicating that Apple may have avoided the necessity for biometrics that focus on the fingerprint.

Only one leak—which has since been deleted—has mentioned the color possibilities for the iPhone 14 Pro. According to a Chinese leaker, this year’s new choice for the popular Graphite, Silver, and Gold Pro iPhone hues will be a deep purple. Another set of renderings by the artist Souta are shown below where you can see that (opens in new tab).

The inclusion of the purple option was the most significant alteration, according to a summary of the state of iPhone 14 color speculations published by MacRumors(opens in new tab) in May. The article also includes the current iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 sections’ color possibilities, which are black, white, blue, and [Product] Red. (Take note that Apple now refers to its black and white smartphones as “Midnight” and “Starlight,” respectively.) This time, the pink and green hues would not be used.

In terms of the claimed color possibilities for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, the new purple shade would join silver, gold, and graphite. Both the Alpine Green and Sierra Blue colors that have been offered since the iPhone 13 Pro’s spring introduction will be eliminated from the range.

USB-C iPhone 14 Pro

According to some reports, Apple may eventually switch to USB-C ports with the iPhone 14 Pro, which would make sense given how many of its products currently support USB-C. More recent speculations, however, suggest that Apple will continue to use Lightning rather than USB-C while switching to improved Lightning connectors with faster USB 3.0 data transmission. That occurs at a time when the EU is getting closer to making USB-C the default charger for portable electronics like phones.

For some users, the iPhone 14 Pro’s USB-C port would be an essential feature. In fact, considering that it might degrade over time, the Lightning connection is possibly the weakest aspect of the iPhone. This might make charging your phone quite challenging. Sadly, considering how well-established the standard is and how extensive its ecosystem of accessories is, Apple is unlikely to forsake Lightning unless absolutely necessary.

Apple will transition to USB-C for the iPhone, but not until late 2023, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. If he is right, as a recent Bloomberg article implies he is, then the iPhone 15 will be the first device to officially support USB-C.

iPhone 14 Pro display

A 120Hz dynamic refresh rate display was one of the major improvements the iPhone 13 Pro offered. When a quick refresh rate was required, the screen could switch from 120Hz to as little as 10Hz thanks to the usage of an LTPO panel, which helped preserve battery life.

According to the current speculations regarding the iPhone 13 Pro, we do not anticipate this to alter. The OnePlus 10 Pro has a next-generation LTPO screen, which has the potential to increase power efficiency.

The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have an always-on display thanks to this utilization of panel technology. Future iPhones would get a feature that the finest Android phones have had for years: the ability to show notifications and content, including time and date, on a display without waking the phone up.

Among other changes, iOS 16 is bringing the option to add widgets to the iPhone’s lock screen, which seems to pave the way for an always-on display feature. In fact, coding in the iOS 16 beta suggests that the iPhone 14 will include such a feature. The capability to scale down to 1Hz, which lessens the battery consumption of an always-on display, is rumored to be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro versions. The ordinary iPhone 14 models, on the other hand, are said to sport 90Hz displays, an improvement over the 60Hz of the iPhone 13 but still not as good as the Pro phones.

The purpose of an always-on display is to provide information at a glance, so if Apple’s approach to always-on displays(opens in new tab)tries to cram in too much information, it might backfire. However, using LTPO or low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) panels might guarantee that the refresh rate is kept as low as possible, preventing an always-on display from ruining battery life.

The iPhone 14 Pro will retain its 6.1-inch display, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will maintain its 6.7-inch display, according to the current speculations. According to a rumor from Shadow Leak, the iPhone 14 Pro will have the same display sizes as the iPhone 13 Pro.

The exact dimensions could vary, even though the stated sizes might not. The iPhone 14 Pro might grow from 6.06 inches to 6.12 inches in size, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max from 6.68 to 6.69 inches, according to a Ross Young rumor. Evidently, this will be due to predicted thinner bezels and a new notch design.

And if you’re wondering who’s producing these screens for Apple, one source suggests that it may be Samsung (via ETNews). Samsung Display is one of the most well-known manufacturers of smartphone displays, so it’s hardly surprise that Apple has requested almost 80 million OLED panels from them. Even so, Samsung’s own Galaxy S22 and future Galaxy S23 will compete with the iPhone 14.

iPhone 14 Pro cameras 

The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have the same configuration of a primary, ultrawide, and telephoto array of cameras, so don’t expect a significant change in that regard. That’s not a terrible thing, considering that Apple phones frequently appear on our list of the best photography phones.

The iPhone 14 Pro, meanwhile, is said to include a 48MP primary camera, which would finally represent a departure from the 12MP sensors Apple has relied on for years. Although Cupertino has some of the greatest computational photography available, having more megapixels available will certainly allow the iPhone 14 Pro more flexibility when it comes to processing light and details; we may be reaching a point where Apple will once again value megapixels.

However, a frequent Apple insider predicts that the basic iPhone 14 models would maintain their 12MP cameras, with the Pro versions being the only ones predicted to have a 48MP primary camera.

Although the ultrawide camera has not received any improvements, we would be shocked if no efforts were made to enhance the field of vision and assist reduce any edge distortion.

Additionally, there is potential for the telephoto camera to gain zoom, since an Apple patent suggests that the firm is developing a zoom camera in the periscope manner. The iPhone 14 Pro would be the model for which such a feature would first appear. The periscope camera won’t debut until the iPhone 15 in 2023, according to Apple oracle Ming-Chi Kuo, to further muddle the waters.

All varieties of the iPhone 14 will reportedly have an enhanced front-facing camera, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. This appears to incorporate a new, larger aperture, a more intricate 6-part lens, and the first use of autofocus. Together, these improvements should make it possible for the iPhone’s selfie camera to capture photographs that are more vivid, simpler to concentrate on, and less prone to distortion.

iPhone 14 Pro specs and battery life 

The A16 Bionic processor, which is said to have better performance overall than the A15 Bionic, is anticipated to replace the A15 Bionic with the iPhone 14 Pro series.

Even though the iPhone 14 Pro variants will have a new A16 processor, leaker ShrimpApplePro asserts that their sources have told them that they would still use the 5nm production process. The Pro’s performance advantage over the ordinary iPhone 14 devices may be marginally lessened as a result.

However, compared to the A15 Bionic, the performance of the CPU, graphics, and brain processing will likely be significantly higher on the iPhone 14 Pro. It may not be immediately obvious how much of an impact it will have on the typical user.

Advertisements

Only the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, are expected to use the A16 Bionic chip; the iPhone 14 will continue to use the A15 chip. Apple has always included new iPhones with improved silicon, so this would be a first.

This is supported by a second Shadow Leak leak. Additionally, market research company TrendForce asserts that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be the only devices to include the A16 Bionic (opens in new tab). This is simply conjecture at this point, but it’s possible that the severe chip scarcity of the previous two years affected Apple’s supply chain.

According to a different source, the A15 Bionic technology that powers the iPhone 13 Pro models from this year may be used in the iPhone 14. According to teardowns, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini employ 4GB of RAM, whereas that chip has 6GB of RAM. Therefore, while not the same as a complete chip change, that would be sort of an upgrade.

Although there haven’t been any confirmed storage speculations for the iPhone 14 Pro yet, storage is probably going to reach up to 1TB.

According to a Weibo insider who claims to be familiar with the iPhone 14 family’s battery capacity, all models—aside from the iPhone 14 Pro Max—will see a minor rise in size. There is some shrinkage of the 14 Pro Max, but hopefully not enough to affect the battery life of the device as a whole.

In our battery test, which has the phone continuously refresh web pages via a cellular connection until it runs out of power, we’d be sure that the iPhone 14 Pro would match or surpass the 11 hours and 42 minutes the iPhone 13 Pro achieved. As Apple improves chip and phone efficiency, we anticipate the iPhone 14 Pro Max to perform at least as well as the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which achieved a sizable 12 hours and 16 minutes.

Regarding 5G, we anticipate that the iPhone 14 Pro will employ a new, more compact 5G modem chip. Since it is smaller, it should consume less energy to operate and may have more space for the batteries to grow into. That suggests that the iPhone 13’s already remarkable battery life can be enhanced even more.

Sadly, it appears like Qualcomm’s latest 5G CPU, the Snapdragon X70, may not be compatible with the iPhone 14 Pro. The first of its type 5G AI processor will be included in the chip, enabling the modem system to employ artificial intelligence to improve a phone’s antenna and better control 5G beams flowing to and from a 5G phone. Although AI can also assist control sub-6GHz 5G signals, Qualcomm believes it will be especially valuable for mmWave-based 5G networks in locations like stadiums and arenas.

The iPhone 14 Pro could get satellite network connection in addition to cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity. Emergency satellite communications are reportedly a possibility for the iPhone 14 models, according to trustworthy tipsters. That feature originally surfaced in the run-up to last year’s iPhone 13 launch; however, the capability didn’t come in time for those phones. The concept is that you may text emergency services to inform them of your position while you’re in an area without reliable cellular or Wi-Fi access.

iPhone 14 Pro outlook  

The Pro versions are expected to represent a true development of the iPhones we’ve seen over the previous several years, thus the iPhone 14 Pro may be the device many of us have been waiting for. The forthcoming generation of iPhone will likely bring a design language and features that will pave the way for all iPhones to follow, while it won’t be entirely distinguishable from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12. Here is what the iPhone SE (2022) has to say about the iPhone 14 now that it has been released.

No notch, Touch ID, higher megapixel primary camera, USB-C connector, or any other feature could significantly alter the iPhone as we know it. And it would have the additional impact of setting the benchmark for other smartphones to meet in order to earn a spot on our list of the best phones.
