A magical new way to interact with iPhone. Groundbreaking safety features designed to save lives. An innovative 48MP camera for mind-blowing detail. All powered by the ultimate smartphone chip.
Apple iPhone 14 pro : A16 Bionic
New this year on both iPhone 14 Pro models is the A16 Bionic chip, which replaces the A15 Bionic chip found on the older models. The A16 Bionic comes with a 6-core GPU with two performance and four efficiency cores plus a five-core GPU. There’s also a 16-core Neural Engine. Apple says the new A16 is the fastest chip in a smartphone ever and 40 percent faster than the competition. The GPU is accelerated with 50 percent more bandwidth.
Apple iPhone 14 pro : Display
The displays found on this year’s iPhone are significantly different than the ones on last year’s models once you get beyond size. First, for the first time, both models will have an Always-On display, which makes it possible to read Lock Screen information in the dark, such as the time, widgets, and Live Activities. This is powered by LTPO and a new 1Hz refresh rate option that keeps the display on while preserving the battery.
Apple iPhone 14 pro : Camera
Besides Dynamic Island and the Always-On display, the Apple iPhone 14 pro camera systems are noted for its improved camera features. That camera system offers 48MP Main, 12MP Ultra Wide, and 12MP Telephoto lenses, with the main aperture now ƒ/1.78 aperture. There’s also a new Photonic Engine that takes computational photography to fun new levels. It’s designed to offer a significant lead for mid to low-light photo performance across all the available cameras.
Game on, gamers
ProMotion technology allows for variable refresh rates from 10 to 120 times per second. It smoothly and intelligently ramps up when you need exceptional graphics performance, and ramps down to save power when you don’t. Game on, gamers.
All-day battery life even with so many new capabilities
There haven’t been many battery changes between this year’s iPhone Pro models and the last. The only change comes with video playback. On the iPhone 14 Pro, video playback jumps from 22 to 23 hours; on the iPhone 14 Pro Max, it jumps from 28 to 29 hours. Both models support fast charging delivers 50% charge in around 30 minutes with a 20W adapter or higher.
Emergency SOS via satellite and Crash Detection
Two new features not discussed above are Emergency SOS via satellite and Crash Detection. The former will become available beginning in November and will be free for two years with the activation of any iPhone 14 model. The latter, which is also available on the newest Apple Watches, will be able to detect when you’re in a crash, and will promptly call 911.
