Apple announced two phones in Pro Series – Apple iPhone 14 Pro with 6.1 inch display and iPhone 14 Pro Max with 6.7 inch display. Both the phones boast of Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion that features the Always-On display for the first time ever on iPhone, enabled by a new 1Hz refresh rate. The display comes with peak HDR brightness level as Pro Display XDR, and the highest outdoor peak brightness in a smartphone: up to 2000 nits, which is twice as bright as iPhone 13 Pro.
These phones have small pil type notch which Apple calls the Dynamic Island which shows in real time important alerts, notifications, and activities. With the introduction of the Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less of the display area. Without impeding content on the screen, the Dynamic Island maintains an active state to allow users easier access to controls with a simple tap-and-hold. Ongoing background activities like Maps, Music, or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information like sports scores and ride-sharing with Live Activities can take advantage of the Dynamic Island.
These two Pro phones are powered by the latest A16 Bionic chip which is faster than the competition and easily handles demanding workloads. The A16 Bionic features an accelerated 5-core GPU with 50 percent more memory bandwidth — perfect for graphics-intensive games and apps — and a new 16-core Neural Engine capable of nearly 17 trillion operations per second. These phones run on the latest iOS 16 with features of Lock Screen along with new communication, sharing, and intelligence features.
These two phones are armed with 48MP Main camera with a quad-pixel sensor that adapts to the photo being captured, and features second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilization. The primary camera is supported by 12MP 120° Ultra Wide camera. The quad-pixel sensor also enables a 2x Telephoto option that uses the middle 12 megapixels of the sensor for full-resolution photos and 4K videos with no digital zoom. iPhone 14 Pro takes computational photography even further with Photonic Engine, offering a giant leap for mid- to low-light performance in photos across all cameras through a deep integration of hardware and software: up to 2x on the Main camera, up to 3x on the Ultra Wide camera, up to 2x on the Telephoto camera, and up to 2x on the TrueDepth camera. For selfies, these phones hava 12MP TrueDepth (f/1.9) front camera.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max also offer industry-leading durability features with the Ceramic Shield front cover — tougher than any smartphone glass — and are protected from common spills and accidents with water and dust resistance.
The iPhone 14 lineup also comes with Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via satellite features. Emergency SOS via satellite will be available to users in the US and Canada in November, and the service will be free for two years. The iPhone 14 series will have Fitness+ fully integrated with the Fitness app coming with iOS 16 and located in the middle tab, where users can stay motivated to close their Move ring through awards, activity sharing, and more. Users only need an iPhone to sign up, and can then experience Fitness+ on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be available in deep purple, silver, gold, and space black in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage capacities. These phones can be pre-ordered from September 9 and shipment will commence from September 16.
