On the occasion of the Keynote in which Apple wishes to present the most relevant novelties of the year, we have been able to see the launch of the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Pro in all its variants. There are many novelties that these new devices hide, but now we are going to focus on the company’s flagship.
The iPhone 14 Pro is now more “Pro” than ever in light of the major hardware differences that separate it from its siblings. Discover all the technical features of the new iPhone that has been renewed on the outside, but also on the inside.
Design: A new sign of identity
The notch is here to stay and at the same time to replace a Touch ID that already seems completely reviled by the Cupertino company according to the catalog offered. So much so that we could hardly see the iPhone SE and the iPad with this technology, both close to disappearing from the windows.
At this point the iPhone 14 Pro is going to stand out more than ever from the standard version, the fault lies with the new “pill” system that surrounds the Face ID, along with the camera sensor of the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 ProMax. A design that will please practically everyone, considering that the notch is not exactly the best design solution, but that is far from the screen usage that some might have expected.
- The notch will change shape and interact with the content on the screen
As for the materials, Apple continues to bet on polished steel for the bezels of its Pro range, which keep the layout of the holes and buttons intact compared to the previous edition. The same happens with the back, that special fingerprint-repellent glass that almost nobody touches because it wraps the iPhone in one of its wonderful cases.
Yes we have differences in colors, the iPhone 14 Pro range will offer green, purple, white, gold and black. We say goodbye (definitive?) to the blue color that attracted so many users and that was maintained during iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
In this aspect, the entire range of the iPhone 14 in all its variants continues to offer water resistance and cutting-edge durability thanks to its collaborations with Gorilla Glass.
Regarding the sizes, The 6.1-inch screen of the iPhone 14 Pro is maintained, as well as the 6.7-inch of the Pro Max model.
Hardware: Much more Pro than ever
There are few incentives that users found to take advantage of the Pro version of the iPhone, and Apple has decided to put an end to that. To start a differentiation of processors unprecedented until now. The iPhone 14 Pro and its Max version will use Apple’s new A16 Bionic, a low-power processor with the latest Neural Engine technology to get the most out of the combination of cameras and hardware it has, with 4-nanometer architecture.
For its part, we have few innovations at the level of autonomy, but enough to meet the needs of users. At the moment the Pro Max version of the iPhone had been a reference When it comes to mobile device autonomy, Apple has promised not only to match but to improve on these terms. Obviously they have not given data regarding mAh, but they have nothing to hide:
- iPhone 14 Pro: 3,200mAh
- iPhone 14 Pro Max: 4,323mAh
This will mean a significant increase in the battery of the iPhone 14 Pro compared to its predecessor, but a slight drop compared to the previous Pro Max version, a movement by Apple that we do not quite understand well and that we imagine will have something to do with the current camera module.
- Satellite emergency calls
In the same way, the new Face ID module has included improvements that differentiate it from the one used in the iPhone 14 and that will provide a higher level of security, privacy and, above all, speed of recognition.
Multimedia: Slight improvements throughout
Apple promises to have improved the power and quality of all its speakers, which however had been the finest on the market. The screen is maintained with a high adaptive refresh rate (from 1 to 120Hz), something that greatly differentiates them from the standard model.
- 2,000 nits of peak brightness
- Always On Display
Little more to highlight in the rest of the sections where Apple has been shining for a long time with the use of OLED panels calibrated to perfection and with a sense of quality that will not decline in this new generation of devices.
Cameras: The “Pro” hallmark
Pro is more than hardware, the camera improves not only by having one more sensor, but by a good handful of implementations.
For the first time Apple has decided to implement an improvement in the resolution of its front camera as well as an auto-focus system that allows not only to take selfies with higher quality, but also to use the front camera with the ease with which we would use the rear one.
As for the rear, the enlargement of the module has a lot to do with the improvements. The 12MP sensors have become 48MP, the main one with f/1.78 aperture, but where the iPhone has to speak the most is in the sensor Ultra Wide Angle, which grows up to 1.4nm to have a great catchment of light. Undoubtedly, the weak point of the iPhone camera so far could be the Ultra Wide Angle and they have decided to solve it with ease. The telephoto with the same specifications as the main camera but 2x optical magnification.
- The front camera will now have a 12MP f/1.9 aperture camera, improving the TrueDepth system.
- Improvements in the result of Macro photography thanks to Quad-Pixel.
- Action mode for motion capture
All these improvements are focused on improving photography and video recording in low light conditions. A video recording that will allow content to be obtained in 4K resolution, as before, with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos technology.
