Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro is expected to include a design that differs significantly from the iPhone 13 Pro, potentially shaking up the iPhone lineup. Everything from the demise of the notch to Touch ID’s comeback has been mentioned in the rumours thus far.

As impressive as the iPhone 13 Pro is, it’s hard to argue that it’s a slam dunk above the previous generation. Since the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone hasn’t made a major jump forward.


With the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 6 Pro posing fierce competition, it appears that Apple will have to step up its game with the new iPhone 14 Pro. As far as we know, Apple’s upcoming Pro model appears to be capable of doing just that, as evidenced by the numerous leaks and rumours. And it’s possible that the iPhone 14 Pro will be much different from the other iPhone 14 variants.

So far, here’s everything we know and hope to see from the iPhone 14 Pro.

Release date and cost rumours for the iPhone 14 Pro

The release date and pricing of Apple’s new iPhones are among the most closely guarded secrets in the tech industry. However, based on prior launches, we’d expect the iPhone 14 series to be released in September.


iPhone 14 units are currently said to be subject to engineering validation testing (EVT). There are four phones scheduled to be released in this range, and it appears that all the reports about their design have been confirmed.

The iPhone 14 Pro’s starting price is expected to be the same as its predecessor’s, at $999. However, Apple is unlikely to lower the price of its high-end flagship phones (particularly since the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are also slated to be priced at $699 and $799). While some argue that $999 is an appropriate price for this high-end smartphone, others say it’s too expensive for what you’re getting.

Don’t forget to take a peek at our first impressions of the iPhone 14 vs iPhone 14 Pro.


Pro design for the iPhone 14

The rumoured leaks from Jon Prosser have led to a series of renderings purporting to demonstrate the iPhone 14 Pro’s upcoming key upgrades.

In an homage to the iPhone 4, the volume controls can be seen in the images. There’s also rumours of using titanium in the iPhone 14 Pro, which would potentially make it more durable and lighter than the previous model.

The iPhone 14 retains the flat edges of the iPhone 13 series, however there may be some disagreement over the cameras on the back.

It appears that the iPhone 14 Pro’s rear will include a three-camera setup that is flush with the device. However, if you’re hoping for something new, you may be let down by some rival schematics, which depict the iPhone 14 Pro variants as appearing quite similar to the iPhone 13. As with the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have a thicker body and an even larger elevated camera array.

It’s also possible that the camera module may increase larger, according to some rumours. Because a 48MP camera requires a bigger camera module, Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected Apple analyst, believes that this is the case.

Prosser’s images show that Apple will go with a punch-hole selfie camera instead of the now-famous display notch on the iPhone 14 Pro. But according to display analyst Ross Young, Apple will give a pill-shaped cutout and a punch hole for Face ID, so there will be two cuts.


An apparent schematic leaked on Weibo shows what the iPhone 14 Pro may look like, as shown below. We’re not sure if this would be a better option than the notch.

Display Supply Chain Consultants, an analysis organisation, has once again emphasised the possibility of an iPhone 14 Pro with cutouts for two cameras. If you want a notch-free display on your next iPhone, you’ll have to wait another year for the regular model, which makes it even more appealing.

One more set of CAD renderings has shown us what the iPhone 14 Pro may look like without a notch, and they’re rather nice. Even though the asymmetrical design appears out of place on an Apple device, its uniqueness is undeniable.


As many of Apple’s gadgets already have USB-C connection, it would make sense for the iPhone 14 to include a USB-C connector, according to rumour. For some, USB-C on the iPhone 14 Pro would be a need.

An under-display fingerprint scanner has been rumoured to be a possible comeback of Touch ID. However, it’s too early to tell whether or not this is actually possible. Ming Chi-Kuo, an analyst, predicts that an iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID under the display won’t be available for several years. This would have been a huge disappointment, as it would have been really useful during these mask-wearing occasions.

Face ID can now detect a genuine individual even when they are wearing a mask, thanks to iOS 15.4 from Apple. Since it works so effectively, it’s possible that Apple has eliminated the requirement for fingerprint biometrics altogether.


In terms of colour possibilities for the iPhone 14 Pro, we’ve only seen renders of black, white, a pale peach, and a dark green; the last of these appears to be rather appealing, but we should proceed with caution until further information becomes available.

Display of the iPhone 14 Pro

The dynamic refresh rate display of the iPhone 13 Pro was one of the most significant enhancements. Using an LTPO panel, the screen could move from 120Hz to as little as 10Hz when a rapid refresh rate was needed, which saved battery life.

According to the speculations thus far, we don’t anticipate this to change with the iPhone 13 Pro. Even yet, the usage of an improved next-generation LTPO screen, such as that seen in the OnePlus 10 Pro, might increase power efficiency.


The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to have a 6.7-inch display. The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have the same display sizes as the iPhone 13 Pro, according to a tip from Shadow Leak.

Cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro

When Apple comes to cameras, the iPhone 14 Pro isn’t expected to make much changes from its predecessors, which had a primary, ultrawide, and telephoto lens. Apple phones frequently appear on our list of the best camera phones, which is a good thing.

One report, however, suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro would include a 48MP primary camera, which would mark a significant departure from Apple’s long-standing use of 12MP sensors. While Apple’s computational photography is among of the greatest in the world, having more megapixels to work with would definitely offer the iPhone 14 Pro more options when it comes to processing light and details; we might be at a time where megapixels matter once again to Apple.

According to a fresh report from China, the iPhone 14 Pro will not include a 48MP primary sensor. Is Fat claims that this year’s Pro models will feature the same 12MP IMX703 camera as the iPhone 13 Pro, which has 1.9 m pixels. We, of course, advise you to take this allegation with a grain of salt, as we do with every rumour and “leak.”

There has been no mention of any adjustments to the ultrawide camera, although we wouldn’t be shocked if some effort wasn’t made to increase the field of vision and remove any distortion at the edges.

An Apple patent suggests the corporation is working on a periscope-style zoom camera, so a zoom boost for the telephoto lens is possible. The iPhone 14 Pro would be the first iPhone to provide such a function. To complicate things, Apple oracle Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple plans to release the periscope camera with its next-generation iPhone 15 in 2023.


There’s been no announcement about any enhancements to the front-facing camera. Software improvements to improve portrait and low-light photographs are expected.

Specifications and battery life of the iPhone 14 Pro

iPhone 14 Pro’s specifications have not been confirmed, although it isn’t unusual for a new model to feature an upgraded processor, as is the case with every new iPhone.

We may anticipate an A16 Bionic processor to follow the A15 Bionic in terms of overall performance. An upgrade to a 4nm manufacturing node is envisaged for that chip. A 5G modem built by Apple is also a possibility.


The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to deliver a significant increase in CPU, graphics, and brain processing power over the A15 Bionic. You may not notice the difference to the ordinary user, but don’t expect the iPhone 14 Pro to struggle with any work.

However, according to Kuo, the A16 Bionic will only be used in iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models, while the iPhone 14 is expected to remain on the A15. Apple has never done this before, as new iPhones have always come with improved silicon. Shadow Leak’s second disclosure confirms this. However, this is simply conjecture at this point because of the tremendous chip scarcity over the previous two years.

Newer reports indicate that the iPhone 14 will employ the same A15 Bionic processor that powers this year’s iPhone 13 Pro models, making the situation even more puzzling for Apple fans. According to teardowns, the processor has 6GB of RAM, whereas the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have 4GB of RAM. It’s an improvement, but it’s not a whole processor change, so the iPhone 14 Pro has an edge over the ordinary model in terms of attractiveness.


According to a recent leak, Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro will include 8GB of memory. Because of Apple’s focus on efficiency, the iPhone 14 Pro might become an incredible powerhouse if it had more RAM than Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Because the existing iPhones aren’t very sluggish, adding more RAM can seem unnecessary. It seems odd to us that all four iPhone 14 versions would have 6GB of RAM, according to analyst Jeff Pu.

The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have a storage capacity of up to 1TB, however there have been no confirmed speculations about this yet.


As of now, there are no speculations about the battery’s size or capacity. Nonetheless, we’re certain that the iPhone 14 Pro will match or beat the 11 hours and 42 minutes that the iPhone 13 Pro achieved in our battery test, which requires the phone to constantly refresh web pages until it dies. We’d anticipate the iPhone 14 Pro Max to have the same or greater battery life as Apple continues to improve the efficiency of its chips and phones.

This year’s iPhone 14 Pro is expected to employ a new, more compact 5G modem chip. It should use less power and have more area for the battery to grow as a result of its reduced size. The iPhone 13’s battery life, which is already remarkable, might be further enhanced in this way.

Qualcomm’s new 5G CPU, the Snapdragon X70, may not be able to benefit from the iPhone 14 Pro’s advances. For the first time, the chip will incorporate a 5G AI processor that will allow the modem system to utilise AI to improve a phone’s antenna and better control 5G beams flowing to and from a 5G device. For mmWave-based, 5G networks, Qualcomm believes that AI would be particularly effective in stadiums and arenas. However, AI might be used to control sub-6GHz 5G signals as well.

For many people, the iPhone 14 Pro is the phone they’ve been waiting for, since the Pro variants are predicted to deliver a significant upgrade over previous generations of iPhones. Certainly, the iPhone 14 won’t be a radical departure from the iPhone 13 and 12, but we believe that it will establish a new aesthetic and set the bar for future iPhones. Here’s what the iPhone SE tells us about the iPhone 14 now that it’s out:

In addition to Touch ID and a USB-C connector, the iPhone might benefit from a new design that doesn’t have a notch.
