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 forwards.

With the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and the Google Pixel 6 Pro posing fierce competition, it seems like Apple will have to step up its game with the iPhone 14 Pro. Fortunately, based on the reports and leaks thus far, Apple’s next Pro model seems to be accomplishing exactly that. There may be some significant variations between the iPhone 14 Pro and the other iPhone 14 variants.


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

Release date and cost rumours for the iPhone 14 Pro

Apple, as expected, is keeping a tight lid on any details regarding the next generation of its iPhones, notably in terms of delivery dates and pricing. However, based on recent launches, we can safely assume that the iPhone 14 series will be released in September.

iPhone 14 might be unveiled on September 13 and released 10 days later on September 22, according to Apple’s prior trends, although this is only conjecture. For additional information, check out our iPhone 14 release date prediction page.


To avoid protracted waits for the iPhone 14 range owing to supply chain disruptions caused by the coronavirus epidemic, Apple is taking efforts to limit the likelihood of production delays among its main suppliers.

LeaksApplePro has reported that three of the four iPhone 14 versions are tipped for a price increase, although this is only a rumour.

According to the rumour mill, the iPhone 14 Pro’s starting price would be $1,099, $100 more than the iPhone 13 Pro’s. The price of the iPhone 14 Pro Max might rise to $1,199 in the near future. Anyone expecting to get their hands on a high-end version of the iPhone 14 will be stinging their wallets with this price increase.


On Twitter, another leaker, Shadow Leak, claims that the iPhone 14 Pro will cost $1,099.

Check out our early review of the iPhone 14 versus iPhone 14 Pro – it’s the most significant upgrade in years!.

iPhone 14 Pro design 

According to tipster Jon Prosser, secret information has led to a series of renderings that show the iPhone 14 Pro in a new light.


Three cameras are flush with the iPhone 14 Pro’s rear in Prosser’s renderings. The iPhone 14 Pro seems to be quite similar to the iPhone 13 in some competitor schematics, so if that sounds good to you, you could be disappointed. As with the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Max, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to include a larger, higher-resolution camera array, as well as a thicker body (up to 0.2mm).

In other sources, the camera module is also predicted to get larger. Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says this is because a bigger module is required to accommodate a 48MP camera on the device. To better match the new module’s curved edges, a fresh rumour suggests that iPhone 14 Pro (but not the Pro Max) corners will be rounded.

The now-famous display notch will be gone from the iPhone 14 Pro, according to numerous speculations. There will be two ‘cutouts’ for Face ID, says Ross Young, a display expert at Forrester Research.


One possible design for the iPhone 14 Pro is seen below, according to a Weibo source. We’re not sure whether it’s a better option than the notch.

More credibility to these speculations was provided by what looks to be a leaked supply chain picture displaying the display panels for all four iPhone 14 versions.

However, the notch is anticipated to be ditched in favour of a mix of a pill-shaped cutout and a “punch-hole” camera or sensor in the iPhone 14 Pro, which is expected to go on sale in September.


Display Supply Chain Consultants, an analysis organisation, has once again emphasised the possibility of an iPhone 14 Pro with cutouts for two cameras. However, the normal iPhone will have to wait another year before it receives a notch-free display, which adds to the attraction of going pro with the next iPhone in the meanwhile.

An entirely notchless iPhone 14 Pro has been shown off in yet another set of CAD renderings. There’s something oddly lopsided about the design, yet it’s still unique.

Alibaba and Macotakara’s mock-ups of the iPhone 14 are the greatest places to get a sense of what all the design changes mean. Macotakara says that iPhone 13 Pro cases won’t fit the iPhone 14 Pro owing to the larger camera module.


Touch ID was rumoured to be returning as an under-display fingerprint scanner in the early going. To be honest, it’s hard to say just how plausible anything like this really is at this point. A few years down the road, analyst Ming Chi-Kuo believes there won’t be an iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID. Face ID’s absence would have been a major setback, given the prevalence of masks in today’s society.

Face ID, on the other hand, has been improved so that it can detect a person even if they are wearing a mask. Since it works so effectively, it’s possible that Apple has eliminated the requirement for fingerprint biometrics altogether.

One leak has addressed the iPhone 14 Pro’s colour possibilities, however it has since been erased. For the first time, a dark purple hue has been rumoured for this year’s Pro iPhones, according to an anonymous Chinese leaker.


The USB-C port on the iPhone 14 Pro

Several Apple products currently have USB-C ports, so it would make sense if the iPhone 14 Pro also had USB-C connection, according to reports. However, according to more recent speculations, Apple will continue to use Lightning over USB-C, but will instead use Lightning ports with USB 3.0 data transmission. These developments coincide with the EU’s plans to make USB-C the industry standard charger for mobile devices.

If you’re considering the iPhone 14 Pro, USB-C may make all the difference to you. As a result, the Lightning connection is one of the iPhone’s most problematic design flaws. This might make charging your phone very tough. In the end, Apple is unlikely to forsake Lightning because of how well entrenched the standard and its accessory ecosystem are.

The screen of the iPhone 14 Pro

The dynamic refresh rate display of the iPhone 13 Pro was one of the most significant enhancements. When a rapid refresh rate was required, the screen could shift from 120Hz to as low as 10Hz thanks to the adoption of an LTPO panel, which saved battery life.


We don’t anticipate this to change with the rumoured iPhone 13 Pro, based on the current information. Even yet, the usage of an improved next-generation LTPO screen, such as that seen in the OnePlus 10 Pro, might increase power efficiency even more.

The ordinary iPhone 14 models, on the other hand, are expected to feature a 90Hz display, which would be an improvement over the iPhone 13’s 60Hz display but would fall short of the Pro phones in terms of refresh rate.

The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to have the same 6.1-inch display as its predecessor, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is expected to keep the same 6.7-inch display as its predecessor. According to a Shadow Leaks report, the iPhone 14 Pro will have the same display sizes as the iPhone 13 Pro, which was leaked earlier this year by the same source.


Cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro

Keep your expectations in check for the amount of cameras on the iPhone 14 Pro, which is expected to include a primary, ultrawide, and telephoto camera array. That’s hardly a terrible thing, given how often Apple phones appear on our list of the best camera phones.

Apple has utilised 12MP cameras for years, but a single source suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 48MP primary camera. When it comes to processing light and details, having more megapixels to work with would definitely offer the iPhone 14 Pro more options; we may be at a moment when megapixels matter once again to Apple.

Standard iPhone 14 models are anticipated to keep their 12MP cameras, according to a reliable Apple source. Only Pro versions are expected to gain a 48MP primary camera.


We’d be amazed if the ultrawide camera didn’t get a boost in terms of field of vision and a reduction in edge distortion.

Apple may be working on a periscope-style zoom camera, which would allow the telephoto lens to obtain a magnification increase. Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro is the most likely place to find this new capability. To complicate things, Apple oracle Ming-Chi Kuo says Apple is planning to release the periscope camera with its next-generation iPhone 15 in 2023.

This is one of the earliest reports we’ve heard regarding the front camera, and it applies to both the Pro and ordinary iPhone 14 versions, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for the company. In order to enhance FaceTime conversations, Kuo expects the front-facing camera to include auto-focus. As for low-light photography, one expert expects that the iPhone 14 would have an even wider aperture, which might improve the quality of images taken in low-light situations.


Battery life and specifications for the iPhone 14 Pro

The iPhone 14 Pro’s specifications haven’t been leaked yet, but it’s safe to assume that any new model will feature an upgraded processor, as is the case with every new iPhone.

We should anticipate an A16 Bionic processor to follow the A15 Bionic, with enhanced performance on all fronts. The manufacturing node for this device is projected to be reduced from 5nm to 4nm. Apple’s 5G modem might possibly be built by the company itself.

The A15 Bionic’s CPU, graphics, and neural processing speed will very certainly be improved upon with the iPhone 14 Pro. Although it’s unclear how much of a difference this will make to the typical user, the iPhone 14 Pro isn’t going to have any problems handling 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. First for Apple, which has traditionally included updated silicon in its new iPhones. Another leak from Shadow Leak supports this. However, this is simply conjecture at this point because of the tremendous chip scarcity over the previous two years.

If that isn’t enough to confuse you, subsequent reports indicate that the iPhone 14 will be powered by the same A15 Bionic processor that powers this year’s iPhone 13 Pro versions. According to teardowns, that processor has 6GB of RAM, whereas the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini have 4GB of RAM. So there would be an upgrade of sorts, but not in the same way as a complete processor update, which would add to the attraction of the iPhone 14 Pro above the ordinary model.

The iPhone 14 Pro, according to a new leak, would include 8GB of RAM. The iPhone 14 Pro might become an incredible powerhouse if its onboard RAM is increased, since Apple’s dedication to efficiency has allowed it to accomplish more with less RAM than the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.


Even if you don’t think your existing iPhone is sluggish, adding an additional GB of RAM can be considered excessive. It seems odd to us that all four iPhone 14 versions are expected to include 6GB of RAM, according to analyst Jeff Pu.

A 1TB storage option for the iPhone 14 Pro is expected, although Apple haven’t been any serious reports about it yet.

Rumors about the battery capacity or size have not yet surfaced. Even though the iPhone 13 Pro’s battery lasted for 11 hours and 42 minutes in our battery test, we are certain that the iPhone 14 Pro will equal or surpass that time. 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.


The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to employ a new, smaller 5G modem chip for 5G connectivity. Because it’s smaller, it should use less power and have more area for the battery to grow. That means that the iPhone 13’s already amazing battery life may be boosted even more.

Qualcomm’s new 5G CPU, the Snapdragon X70, may not be able to benefit from the iPhone 14 Pro’s advances. The modem system will be able to employ artificial intelligence to improve a phone’s antenna and better control 5G beams flowing to and from a 5G phone thanks to the chip’s first-of-its-kind 5G AI processor. Qualcomm believes that mmWave-based 5G networks, such as stadiums and arenas, would be especially valuable, but AI can also assist control sub-6GHz 5G signals.

The iPhone 14 Pro may be able to connect to satellite networks in addition to cellular and Wi-Fi networks. Emergency satellite communications were initially mentioned in the lead-up to last year’s iPhone 13 launch, but the technology didn’t arrive in time for those phones. However, trustworthy tipsters indicate the iPhone 14 models will have this capacity. Text messages sent to emergency services through satellite networks are meant to notify them to your position while you’re in an area with poor cellular or Wi-Fi coverage.


The iPhone 14 Pro’s future is looking bright.

Pro variants of the iPhone are believed to provide a major upgrade over the last several years’ worth of iPhones, and the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to be no exception. This new generation of iPhone isn’t likely to be a complete departure from the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12, but we believe it will set the foundation for future generations of iPhones. So here’s what the iPhone SE (2022) tells us about the iPhone 14 now that it’s available.

The absence of a notch, Touch ID, an increase in the primary camera’s megapixel count, and a USB-C connector all have the potential to fundamentally alter the iPhone. As a result, other smartphones would have to follow suit if they want to be included on our best phones list.
