Apple has officially announced the new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. As expected, the device features a redesigned screen with a new “Dynamic Island” cutout, major updates to the camera, new colors, and more.

iPhone 14 Pro features

The new pill-shaped cutout at the top is even more interactive and versatile than the rumors had predicted. You can tap and hold to find more options and controls. For instance, when using Apple Maps for navigation, you can tap on the Dynamic Island for an update on your navigation instructions.

The Dynamic Island can also show things like album art for content in the Music app, controls for FaceTime, specific background activities, and more. The new Live Activities feature coming iOS 16 also integrates with the Dynamic Island. This means you can see live notifications directly in the new screen area.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max also include major updates to the display technology. The bezels are thinner and there is now peak outdoor brightness of 2000 nits alongside HDR brightness of 1600 nits.

The bigger update to the screen, however, is the new Always-On Display. The Always-On Display shows the time, widgets, and Live Activities. You can also show your wallpaper in a dimmed state.

In terms of performance, the iPhone 14 Pro is powered by a new A16 chip, which is built on an updated 4nm process for improved efficiency and performance. Apple didn’t get into many specifics on A16 performance itself, instead focusing on how Apple’s chip technology continues to be years ahead of the “nearest competitor.”

One of the big focuses of the A16 is the image signal processor, which helps power an all-new camera package. The main camera has been updated to a 48MP lens with a quad-pixel sensor and an f/1.78 aperture. This quad-pixel sensor “adapts to the photo being captured” and combines every four pixels into one. In doing this, Apple says you can get “amazing low-light” images as well as keep the image photo size down.

The quad-pixel sensor also enables a 2x Telephoto option that uses the middle 12 megapixels of the sensor for full-resolution photos and 4K videos with no digital zoom. Additionally, using the ProRAW feature, professionals can shoot the full 48MP resolution.

Outside of the new 48MP main camera, there are a number of other upgrades; including the first-ever upgrade for the Ultra Wide camera:

Four colors: Space black, deep purple, silver, and gold. Starts at $999 for iPhone 14 Pro and $1099 for iPhone 14 Pro Max. Pre-orders on September 9 with availability on September 16.
