The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were just introduced by Apple. With always-on screens, a redesigned pill-shaped notch that moves and animates, a speedier A16 Bionic CPU, and even a better 48-megapixel camera, these are significant advancements to the iPhone 13 Pro handsets from last year. Until you examine the display in more detail, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max resemble the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max from the previous year. The notch is kind of gone thanks to the new pill-shaped cutout. In what Apple refers to as mic Island, it genuinely moves and animates.
Apple is using this system for live activity widgets and even when you swipe up to move background tasks like music playback to the island. Notifications and alerts will adapt and move around the pill-shaped notch. The Dynamic Island is a significant upgrade for the iPhone 14 Pro, and its ability to alter shapes appears to be a fun approach to maximize the space available in the notch.
I suppose if you can’t lose it, use it. An always-on function is another new addition to the displays of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. It functions by displaying information widgets on the display without turning on the device. You may view the forecast, the calendar, and more. The wallpapers even darken to match the always-on mode, and it looks fantastic. According to an Apple spokesman, this is compatible with any background and is tailored to highlight faces when they are found. But if there were no new cameras, it wouldn’t be an iPhone. The iPhone is switching for the first time from a 12-megapixel sensor to a 48-megapixel one.
Low-light photography has improved thanks to the use of quad-pixel sensors with an f/1.78 aperture and a 24mm focal length. The improved A16 Bionic chip from Apple is also found inside the iPhone 14 Pro variants. In the limited hands-on time we have with these products, it is difficult to evaluate the performance, but Apple claims that its new chip has been designed with battery efficiency, display, and camera in mind.
The new Dynamic Island system is also powered in part by this new microprocessor. Overall, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max feel just as sturdy as the previous model, with some intriguing internal changes, particularly to the camera, that we can’t wait to explore.
