iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max FAQ: Pros and Cons

  • The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are now available, and many users are eager to get their hands on Apple’s latest premium phones.
  • For the first time, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max appear to be more popular than the standard iPhone 14 and 14 Plus models. Despite higher prices, delivery dates for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have already pushed back to October.
  • Much is determined by how the new Pro models differ from the standard iPhone 14 in terms of features and experience. To clear up any confusion, we’ve created an in-depth FAQ that answers some of the questions our readers have been asking about the iPhone 14 Pros.

What I’ve heard, this year’s iPhone 14 Pro differs from the standard iPhone 14. Is this true?

  • For the first time, there is a significant difference between Apple’s iPhone Pro and non-Pro models. In fact, the iPhone 14 Pro has a slew of new features that help to justify its high price.
  • The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 share many of the same features, such as an improved front-facing camera and auto-crash detection. However, the iPhone 14 Pro models have a 48-megapixel main camera, an always-on display, the new A16 Bionic processor, and a redesigned cutout on the front-facing screen, in addition to a more expensive look.

Should I pick iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max?

  • Apple sells the iPhone Pro line in two models, as it has for several years, with the main differences being screen size, battery capacity, and price.
  • The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max appear to share the same features, so regardless of which model you choose, the core features and functionalities remain the same.
  • The iPhone 14 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen. The iPhone 14 Pro Max will, of course, be larger and heavier than the iPhone 14 Pro. In comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro is easier to hold in one hand.

Does iPhone 14 Pro have an always-on display?

  • The iPhone 14 Pro will get a “always-on” display feature similar to the Apple Watch. When the display is dim, you can view the phone’s lock screen with this new feature. When you’re not interacting with the display, the refresh rate can drop as low as 1 Hz to save battery life.

Does iPhone 14 Pro have an OLED display?

  • The OLED screen on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max remains, as does the 120Hz ProMotion high refresh rate display.
  • Apple has upgraded the display panels this year, with a maximum brightness of 2000 nits, which is twice the peak brightness of the iPhone 13 Pro display, as we will see later in the review.

Everyone’s talking about Dynamic Island. What’s that?

  • Instead of a notch at the top of the screen, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have a pill-shaped cutout that houses the selfie camera, 3D sensor, and other components.
  • A pill-shaped cutout on the display is also common on Android-powered smartphones. What Apple did differently is how the pill-shaped notch on the iPhone 14 can be dynamically controlled by iOS.
  • Apple refers to it as “Dynamic Island.” Essentially, the cut-out resizes and expands to show more controls, such as music or notifications, thanks to clever implementation.
  • The notch remains on the regular iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, so the Dynamic Island is limited to Apple’s new iPhone Pro lineup.

Is the iPhone 14 Pro faster than the older model?

  • Apple’s A16 Bionic chip powers the iPhone 14 Pro models.
  • The six-core CPU has two high-performance cores that consume 20% less power and four efficiency cores. Yes, it’s faster, but the difference isn’t noticeable in day-to-day tasks unless you record and edit a lot of videos on the phone itself.

Does iPhone 14 Pro have a USB-C port?

  • The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max do not have USB-C ports. Instead, both phones continue to use Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector, which is now ten years old.

How much RAM memory does iPhone 14 Pro have?

  • Apple does not publicly discuss RAM in an iPhone, but it is not difficult to find out. According to a recent teardown of the iPhone 14 Pro, the new Pro models retain the same 6GB RAM capacity as the iPhone 13 Pro but benefit from the newer LPDDR5 memory type.

How much storage capacity does the iPhone 14 Pro have?

  • The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have storage capacities of 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB. Remember that the storage is not expandable, so select the model accordingly.

Is the iPhone 14 Pro water-resistant?

  • Both the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have IP68 dust and water resistance ratings. This means they can be submerged in water for up to half an hour at a maximum depth of six metres. They are also dustproof.

Does iPhone 14 Pro have a new camera system?

  • Yes, Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro models feature a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens (up from 12MP) (up from 12MP). The new main camera improves low-light photography with a quad-pixel sensor, f/1.78 aperture, and 24mm focal length.
  • Meanwhile, the 12-megapixel telephoto lens remains, but Apple claims it has a faster aperture and larger pixel size to improve the quality of zoomed-in images.
  • The Ultra Wide lens remains at 12-megapixels, but Apple claims it performs up to three times better in low light than the iPhone 13 Pro’s camera.
  • Stay tuned for our in-depth iPhone 14 Pro camera review, which will be published in the coming days.

Does iPhone 14 Pro have a better selfie camera?

  • Yes, the iPhone 14 Pro’s front-facing camera has been improved.
