Here''s how the new iPhone 14 Pro lineup compares to its predecessors. This Specs Appeal article allows you to see the similarities and specifications of the iPhone 14 Pro, 13 Pro, and 12 Pro along with their Max versions.
The iPhone 14 Pro model can only include a larger Plus model for those upgrading from the iPhone 13 or 12. This year, Apple has ditched the notch, offering buyers something called "Dynamic Island" a pill-shape strategy that integrates into the operating system by offering additional information, fancy animations, and convenient gestures. Besides, the iPhone 14 Pro series has a more significant and exciting feature that can decrease the duration of refresh time from 120Hz to 1Hz.
Cameras are another area in which the iPhone 14 Pro lineup offers significant improvements. Apple has chosen a 48MP primary camera, ditching the old-fashioned 12MP array it has been using since the iPhone 6S. A fresh flash consisting of 9 LEDs can also be used to recreate scenes.
Once a car accident is discovered, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max include satellite communication. If you happen to be in a car accident, new sensors will detect air pressure changes. Like the Apple Watch and its fall detection system, the iPhone 14 Pro series can notify emergency personnel and contacts.
Finally, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have the next-generation Apple A16 processor. It has the previous 6 CPU and 5 GPU cores configuration, but the raw performance has increased by about 25%.
Here are a few of the most important changes summed up in a list:
