iPhone 14 Pro — 6 biggest rumored upgrades


It’s no secret that the iPhone 14 promises a slew of new features—including a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max that will replace the mini—but this year’s focus seems to be on the iPhone 14 Pro. And that’s because early reports and speculations indicate that the ordinary and Pro models have a number of major distinctions.

Even if you look at our early iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 14 Pro analysis that breaks down all the leaks Apple far, we might be looking at the widest disparity in features and power ever between the two batches of new iPhones.

Everything from cameras and design to charging, displays, and general performance is being discussed. The speculated enhancements to the iPhone 14 Pro are listed below.


There is no notch on the iPhone 14 Pro (finally)

Almost every iPhone from the iPhone X forward has used the same overall front-end design. With that in mind, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max appear to be breaking with tradition by ditching their notch, which houses both the front-facing camera and all the technology required for Face ID.

Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro series is expected to forego the notch in favour of two smaller cuts on its front display, according to multiple sources. TrueDepth sensor would have a pill-shape cutout with a punch hole for selfie camera. Although it’s possible that this design may be even more annoying than the single notch, it doesn’t appear to be as invasive as the renderings we’ve seen.

iPhone 14 Pro rumoured to have a 48MP camera.

With a 12MP primary camera for years, Apple continues to develop the greatest photography phones in their lineup. Moreover, these cameras are becoming larger and better sensors, as well as more advanced computational photography.


Even yet, consumers at the Professional level prefer a higher resolution, especially when it comes to post-processing photo cropping. And if the claims of a 48MP wide-angle camera for the iPhone 14 Pro series are real, they might get their desire. The iPhone 14 Pro’s 48MP camera might also employ pixel binning to reduce high-resolution images to 12MP for simpler sharing.

For one thing, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is already available from Samsung, has an 8K video recording capability thanks to its 48MP primary camera.

It remains to be seen if optical zoom will again be limited to 3x on the iPhone 14 Pros, but we’ll keep an eye on it.


The iPhone 14 Pro is compatible with USB-C.

The iPhone 14 Pro series is expected to have USB-C connection, according to a single leaker. As a result, the iPhone 13 and preceding iPhones will have to put up with slower charging on the Lightning port for the Pro line at the very least. In addition, Lightning cords aren’t as dependable as USB-C ones.

Apple is said to have made this step in order to increase the transfer speeds of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, not to embrace a newer standard. Indeed, if Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro series comes with a 48MP camera, it’ll be easier to transfer files to a MacBook Pro 14-inch or 16-inch that supports 8K video and ProRes video.

iPhone 14 Pro: A16 power and improved RAM

If Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is correct about the iPhone 14 Pro’s specifications, the new A16 Bionic processor may be reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. The A15 Bionic processor featured in the iPhone 13 series will be used in the normal iPhone 14 range.

The four iPhone 14 models are also expected to include 6GB of RAM, which is a significant upgrade over the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 tiny. According to rumours, the Pro versions will include quicker and more efficient LPDDR 5 RAM, while the lower models would have LPDDR 4X RAM.

iPhone 14 Pro has a 120Hz display

ProMotion displays with 120Hz refresh rates are guaranteed to be on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, since they are already on the iPhone 13 Pro line-up. The refresh rate of the ordinary iPhone 14 is expected to rise from 60Hz to 90Hz, according to reports.

As a result, the smoothest scrolling and overall performance should still be found on the iPhone 14 Pro series. Many more games and applications should be designed for a 120Hz experience by the time the iPhone 14 series is released.


The end result is this:

The most advanced advancements for the iPhone 14 series are logical, given that they should continue to command a premium price. If the normal iPhone 14 starts at $799, then upgrading to the Pro is well worth the extra $200. The $1,099 iPhone 14 Pro Max will also have to defend its higher price tag if a $899 iPhone 14 Max is released.

All of the above-mentioned enhancements should do this, but only time will tell if any of them come to fruition.
