This is all we know so far about the iPhone 14 Pro.
iPhone 14 Pro, Apple’s next iPhone, is expected to represent a major departure from the iPhone 13 Pro in terms of appearance. Rumors have ranged from the death of the notch to the restoration of Touch ID.
To compete with Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra and Google Pixel 6 Pro, Apple seems to need to up its game with the iPhone 14 Pro. As far as we know, Apple’s next Pro model seems to be capable of achieving precisely that, as seen by the many leaks and reports.
As of right now, we don’t know much about the iPhone 14 Pro, but we do have certain expectations.
The rumoured release date and pricing of the iPhone 14 Pro.
Naturally, Apple is exceedingly secretive when it comes to the release dates and prices of its next iPhones. Our best guess is that the iPhone 14 will be unveiled in September, based on recent releases.
The newest rumour is that the iPhone 14 series is now in the trial production stage. This is a critical phase in the production of the phone. A device’s design should be finalised, quality assurance equipment should be calibrated, and manufacturing process problems should be identified.
The iPhone 14 Pro’s starting price is expected to be the same as its predecessor’s, at $999. Apple isn’t going to lower the price of its high-end flagship phones (particularly with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max projected to hold down the $699 and $799 pricing slots) despite certain flagship phones like the Samsung Galaxy S22 starting at $799. There’s also the argument that $999 is a reasonable price for a high-end smartphone with a carefully selected operating system and a trio of very great cameras.
Pro design for the iPhone 14
According to tipster Jon Prosser, secret information has led to a series of renderings that show the iPhone 14 Pro in a new light.
Unlike the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the iPhone 14 will have its smooth sides, but the camera module is expected to go extinct. Instead, three cameras will be incorporated into the rear of the phone, similar to what we saw on the iPhone 13 series.
In a homage to the iPhone 4, the volume controls can be seen in the images. There’s also rumours of using titanium in the iPhone 14 Pro, which would potentially make it more durable and lighter than the previous generation.
In addition to the display notch’s elimination, Prosser’s rendering suggests that Apple will opt with a punch-hole selfie camera. It’s possible that Face ID might be implemented using two cutouts: a pill-shaped cutout for Face ID and a punched hole.
A Weibo user has shared an apparent schematic of the iPhone 14 Pro’s design. We’re not sure whether this is a better option than the notch.
Display Supply Chain Consultants, an analysis organisation, has once again emphasised the possibility of an iPhone 14 Pro with cutouts for two cameras. It will be another year before the ordinary iPhone gets a notch-free display, so going pro with the next iPhone is even more attractive.
The iPhone 14 is said to include a USB-C connector, which makes sense given how many of Apple’s gadgets currently have USB-C connectivity.
An under-display fingerprint scanner has been rumoured to be a possible comeback of Touch ID. It is exceedingly unlikely, however, that this function will be included in iOS 15.4, which includes the option to unlock your phone using a face mask, and which also claims that Touch ID is gone on the iPhone 14.
Not much is known about colour possibilities for the iPhone 14 Pro other than black and white; a soft peach; and a dark green; the latter looks fantastic but again it’s just in a render.
Apple’s newest iPhone, the iPhone 14 Pro, has a
The 120Hz dynamic refresh rate display on the iPhone 13 Pro was one of the most significant improvements it brought. In order to preserve battery life, the screen might reduce its refresh rate from 120Hz to as low as 10Hz when using an LTPO panel.
This isn’t likely to change with the iPhone 13 Pro, based on the information we’ve received thus far. A next-generation LTPO panel, like the one seen in the OnePlus 10 Pro, might help increase battery efficiency in the long run.
The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have the same 6.1-inch display as its predecessor, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to keep the same 6.7-inch display as its predecessor.
Cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro
The number of cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro isn’t expected to vary much, since the Pro models are expected to stay with the traditional setup of a primary, ultrawide, and telephoto lens. That’s hardly a terrible thing, given how often Apple devices appear in our top camera phone rankings.
Apple has utilised 12MP cameras for years, but a single source suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 48MP primary camera. When it comes to processing light and details, Apple’s computational photography is some of the finest in the world, but having more megapixels to work with would definitely offer the iPhone 14 Pro more options; we might be at a time when megapixels matter once again to Apple.
iPhone 14 Pro is expected to include a 48MP primary camera, according to recent leaks from China. Is Fat claims that this year’s Pro models will feature the same 12MP IMX703 camera as the iPhone 13 Pro, which has 1.9 m pixels. It’s always best to take rumours with a grain of salt, and this one is no exception.
We’d be shocked if the ultrawide camera didn’t get a little tweaking to increase its field of vision and reduce some of the edge distortion that it now has.
An Apple patent suggests the corporation is working on a periscope-style zoom camera for the telephoto camera. The iPhone 14 Pro would be the most likely candidate to have this new function, if it were to appear at all. If you’re still confused, Apple oracle Ming-Chi Kuo thinks Apple hasn’t yet developed a periscope camera for the iPhone 15.
Front-facing camera upgrades have not been announced. It would, however, benefit from a software upgrade to improve portrait and low-light photography.
The iPhone 14 Pro’s features and battery life.
No concrete speculations exist about the specifications of the iPhone 14 Pro, although any new model, as with every new iPhone, is almost certain to include an enhanced processor.
We should anticipate an A16 Bionic processor to follow the A15 Bionic, with enhanced performance on all fronts. An upgrade to a 4nm manufacturing node is envisaged for that chip. Apple’s 5G modem might possibly be built by the company itself.
As a result, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to deliver a significant increase in CPU and graphics performance over the A15 Bionic. Even if the ordinary user doesn’t perceive the difference, the iPhone 14 Pro is more than capable of handling any work.
However, according to Kuo, the A16 Bionic will only be used in iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models, while the iPhone 14 is expected to remain on the A15. New iPhones do not often come with improved silicon, so this would be a first for Apple. Apple’s supply chain may have been affected by the recent chip shortage, although this is only conjecture at this point.
According to a new leak, the iPhone 14 Pro would include 8GB of RAM. The iPhone 14 Pro might become an incredible powerhouse if its onboard RAM is increased, since Apple’s dedication to efficiency has allowed it to accomplish more with less RAM than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
However, the latest iPhones are rarely sluggish, so adding the additional RAM can be considered as overkill. Analyst Jeff Pu, on the other hand, thinks that all four iPhone 14 versions will include 6GB of RAM.
Upgrading the iPhone 14 Pro’s storage capacity is possible, but no concrete speculations have surfaced as of yet.
There have been no speculations about the battery capacity or the battery’s dimensions. In our battery test, in which we repeatedly push the phone to refresh web pages over a cellular connection until it dies, we’re optimistic that the iPhone 14 Pro will equal or even beat the 11 hours and 42 minutes the iPhone 13 Pro managed. We’d anticipate the iPhone 14 Pro Max to have the same or greater battery life as Apple continues to improve the efficiency of its chips and phones.
The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to employ a new, smaller 5G modem chip for 5G connectivity. The reduced size should reduce the amount of power needed to operate the device, and there may be more area for the battery to grow. That means that the iPhone 13’s already amazing battery life may be boosted even more.
Unfortunately, the iPhone 14 Pro seems to be missing out on Qualcomm’s latest 5G CPU, the Snapdragon X70, which has made significant gains. One of the first of its type on a modem chip, the 5G AI processor should enable it to better manage 5G beams to and from a 5G phone and maximise antenna performance. Qualcomm estimates that mmWave-based 5G networks, such as those in stadiums and arenas, would benefit most from AI, although AI can also assist control sub-6GHz 5G signals.
Preliminary predictions for the new iPhone 14 Pro
The Pro versions are expected to represent a significant progression of the iPhones we’ve seen over the previous several years, and the iPhone 14 Pro might be the phone many of us have been waiting for. This new generation of iPhone isn’t likely to be a complete departure from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, but we believe it will set the foundation for future generations of iPhones. Here’s what the iPhone SE tells us about the iPhone 14 now that it’s out:
The absence of a notch, Touch ID, a larger megapixel count for the primary camera, and a USB-C connector might have a major impact on the iPhone. As a result, other smartphones would have to follow suit if they want to be included on our best phones list.
