At the biggest event of the year, Apple officially announced the iPhone 14 Pro with a new pill-shaped notch design that can flexibly replace the notch from the iPhone X,
adds an always-on display mode and has been called by CEO Tim Cook “the most innovative professional product line ever”
Design and display
The Pro version brings quite a few notable upgrades. The first is about design, which is still a familiar design language, but the screen has been “upgraded” from the bangs to a more optimized flat screen in the bangs area.
The notch area has even been designed by Apple for a seamless visual experience with what’s displayed on the screen.
The feature, which Apple calls Dynamic Island, allows for the merging of iPhone notifications and the display’s notch into one unified block.
The display on the Pro version has a maximum brightness of 2000 nits, supports the standby screen feature (Always on Display).
In standby mode, the refresh rate is reduced, the background image is darkened but the skin tone remains the same. This monitor is a 120Hz ProMotion monitor.
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are available in 4 new colors: black, white, gold and purple.
The next upgrade comes from the camera when Apple equips a 48MP high-resolution camera
For the first time for iPhone after many years keeping the 12MP resolution.
Like Android companies, Apple also uses a pixel interpolation algorithm to stitch 4 pixels together,
produces a 12MP photo in the best quality.
According to Apple, the camera on the iPhone 14 Pro is up to 2x better at shooting in low light than its predecessor,
Allows to collect up to 4 times more light,
Shoot ProRAW at 48MP.
The added 2X telephoto camera gives users more focal length options.
The camera can record at 4K30 or 4K24 and supports ProRes.
- The main camera has 48MP resolution, 24mm conversion focal length, f1.78 aperture, 2.44um pixel size (quad-pixel size – 4 pixels into 1), 2nd generation sensor stabilization, OIS, 7 lens elements, 100% focusable pixels.
- Super wide camera with 12MP resolution, 13mm conversion focal length, f2.2 aperture, 120-degree FOV viewing angle, 6 lens elements, 100% focusable pixels.
- 2X telephoto camera (From Quad-pixel mode, combining 4 pixels into 1 pixel), 48mm conversion focal length, f1.78, 2nd generation sensor stabilization, OIS, 7 lens elements, 100% Focus pixels.
- 3X Tele camera with 77mm conversion focal length, 12MP resolution, no sensor stabilization, OIS stabilization, 6 lens elements
Apple equips the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max with the new Apple A16 chip,
is developed based on the 4nm process with more than 16 billion transistors. Apple A16 includes 6 cores, 2 of which are performance cores and 4 energy-saving cores,
In addition, there are 16 neural engine cores with the ability to handle up to 17 trillion tasks per second.
Performance, according to Apple, is a stronger performance improvement and reduced power consumption.
A16 consumes 1/3 of the power compared to rival chips. Apple A16 also integrates an image processing chip that supports the new 48MP camera system on the iPhone.
The iPhone 14 Pro will also support satellite communications, but only in the US and Canada markets.
In addition, the Pro version also supports crash detection mode like the Apple Watch.
iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max start at $999 and $1099
unchanged from its predecessor, pre-order from today and on shelves from September 16
