iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the flagship smartphones created by Apple Inc. and succeed the iPhone 13 Pro series. They were announced along with iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus at the Apple event in September 2022. Pre-orders began on September 9, 2022, and availability began on September 16, 2022.
These new iPhone models feature a screen cutout called “Dynamic Island,” which replaces the traditional notch design. They also feature two-way satellite connectivity, allowing users to communicate with emergency services when outside of Wi-Fi or cellular network coverage.
Additionally, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, along with the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, no longer support physical SIM cards, making them the first iPhone models since the CDMA variant of the iPhone 4 to lack a SIM card reader. Discreet SIM cards.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max come in four color options: Silver, Space Black, Gold, and Deep Purple. Deep Purple replaces the Sierra Blue color found on the previous iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models.
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max feature several improvements in terms of chipset, camera, display, battery, and connectivity. These models feature the new A16 Bionic chip based on TSMC’s N4 manufacturing process, surpassing the A15 Bionic found in previous iPhone models. The camera system has been updated, with a larger 48-megapixel quad-pixel sensor in the main camera and a larger 12-megapixel sensor in the ultra-wide camera. The lenses have also been improved for greater optical clarity and larger apertures.
A new photonic engine improves image and video quality, and action mode provides stabilized video recording. The TrueDepth camera gains autofocus and a larger aperture, allowing for simultaneous focus on multiple subjects. The Super Retina XDR OLED display offers a maximum brightness of 1000 nits, with a higher maximum brightness for HDR content and outdoor use. The display features a 120Hz refresh rate with LTPO technology, and both models have an always-on display with adaptive ProMotion.
The design of the front camera area, formerly known as the “notch,” is now called the “Dynamic Island,” featuring a pill-shaped cutout separated from the top of the screen. Face ID components and sensors are moved behind the screen, allowing the hardware to blend better with the software. Battery capacity is increased, providing longer video playback and streaming times compared to previous models.
Connectivity options include satellite connectivity for emergency calls and text messages, known as “Emergency SOS.” This feature uses designated satellite spectrum and operates over Globalstar’s satellite network. Users can send emergency messages via satellite, which are received by orbiting satellites and transmitted to ground stations around the world. The service became available in November 2022 and expanded to other countries soon after.
