As expected, Apple announced the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro Max. Here we benefit from many new features, at all levels: screen, performance, photography…
Apple has officially announced the top of the range of its iPhone 14 generation: the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Here are the new features in one image, but we go into more detail below.
Pass the pill
This is the fourth year that Apple has split its smartphone lineup into regular and “Pro” devices. Last year, however, the difference was noticeable thanks to the arrival of the 120Hz ProMotion display, in addition to the additional telephoto lens, lidar sensor and more base RAM and storage.
This year, the standard and Pro models are moving even further apart. First, the notch disappears. As rumors claimed, a hole replaces the notch. It forms a kind of pill.
Apple calls it the the dynamic island because the space reserved for sensors will interact with notifications. It can also accommodate widgets, which can be enlarged to view more content or perform an action.
In other words, Apple has completely revised the notification system with the iPhone 14 Pro by considering the new visual characteristics of the pill which takes the place of the traditional notch.
The screen of the 14 Pro and 14 Pro max are now 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively. Peak brightness drops to 1600 nits, down from 1200. In extreme cases, Apple even mentions 2000 nits in peak brightness outsidewhich we usually see on LCD screens.
L’Always-On-Display is also making its appearance, taking advantage of the technical characteristics of the LTPO screen (up to 1 Hz) and OLED. We still benefit from the colors and a screen that remains readable. If you haven’t followed: it’s a kind of screen saver.
On the performance side, theApple A16 Bionic is the evolution that was expected. This new Apple chip is engraved in 4 nm, it is the most powerful chip for smartphones according to Apple. It is announced 40% more efficient than the competition. With 4 efficient cores and 2 performance cores, the design is hybrid like previous Apple chips. The GPU goes to 5 cores with 50% progress. While it has a new Display Engine dedicated to Always On Display mode.
On the photography side, the iPhone 14 Pro was expected. The 12 megapixel sensor is replaced by a 48-megapixel sensor for the main camera, or 65% more pixels. It opens at f/1.78, and uses pixel beaming technology to merge pixels. Briefly 4 pixels gives 1 pixel to improve detail and brightness recovered. We have known the technique for a very long time in the Android world.
The iPhone 14 Pro is also capable of 48-megapixel ProRAW.
In addition to the x3 telezoom of the 12 Pro, a x2 telezoom is added (12 megapixels, f/1.78). However, you will still have two cameras, because it is a false x2 mode. It uses the 12 megapixel sensor on the wide-angle, as on a Pixel. Technically it’s the same sensor as the 12 Pro, the magic comes from the Apple A165 Bionic.
Let’s also mention the ultra wide-angle. This latest camera has also been reviewed, it still offers macro photography.
And on the front, we also have an improved TrueDepth camera, with autofocus.
New options in the event of an emergency, including a satellite connection
Like the iPhone 14, the 14 Pro gets the car crash detection option. It is an option that also arrives on the new Watch. With a new gyroscope and an improved accelerometer, the iPhone 14 will therefore be able to detect accidents to alert emergencies.
The satellite connection is used in this specific case, and only there, to prevent emergencies. You won’t be able to use it to exchange data or call friends. Messages will take 15 seconds to send under clear skies.
The satellite mode will also be used with Find My (Find), to find your lost iPhone.
Note that only the United States and Canada are compatible with this mode, for the moment.
Rates and availability
There are four colors, violent, black, gold and gray.
The iPhone 14 Pro will start at $999, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max will start at $1,099. There is no price increase. Both will be available to order on Friday and ship on September 9.
