iPhone14 Pro - What's New?
The iPhone 14 Pro is Apple’s upcoming mobile device. According to reports, the phone will have a 6.06-inch touchscreen display with a 120 Hz refresh rate. Wireless charging and proprietary fast charging are supported on the iPhone 14 Pro.
The iPhone 14 Pro is expected to feature a triple rear camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary camera. It is rumored to feature an unspecified primary camera and a single front camera for selfies.
The iPhone 14 Pro runs iOS 16. According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro measures 147.46 x 71.45 x 7.85mm (height x width x thickness).
Lightning is said to be one of the connectivity options on the iPhone 14 Pro.
iPhone 14 Pro rumored release date
Apple’s announced date for the Apple September event: September 7th, makes an early September launch of the iPhone 14 lineup seem increasingly likely. Apple should unveil the iPhone 14 Pro along with its other iPhone models and new Apple Watches at that time.
Gurman points to September 16 as the possible launch date for the phones. It’s not only in line with past gaps between iPhone events and product launches, but Apple retail employees have been told to prepare for a major release on that day.
Preorders for the iPhone 14 are expected to increase according to a recent report
(opens in new tab) would start September 9, which would be just two days after the anticipated September 7 Apple event.
iPhone 14 Pro rumored price
Recent rumors and tips suggest that the iPhone 14 Pro will receive a $100 price hike. Consequently, the iPhone 14 Pro might cost $1,099 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max might cost $1,199.
It is expected that Apple will equip the iPhone 14 Pro with 256GB of storage rather than 128GB. According to Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu, Apple will maintain the same storage options with the iPhone 14 Pro as it did with the iPhone 13 Pro, which means 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
Will Apple be able to justify this $100 price hike for the iPhone 14 Pro models? Here’s what Apple is likely to do to ensure the iPhone 14 Pro offers good value.
In spite of the fact that the iPhone 14 Pro models could be rather pricey, there is a way to get a larger-screened iPhone without spending a fortune: the iPhone 14 Max.
Despite the iPhone 14 Pro models’ headline-grabbing upgrades, we feel it would be wrong to ignore the iPhone 14 Max. With a bigger screen without a big price tag, the iPhone 14 Max could be the phone to beat come the fall, even though one of our editors intends to buy the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Nevertheless, one tech tipter suggests Apple may not make as many iPhone 14 Max units compared to other next-gen iPhones, suggesting it may be testing a larger-screened standard iPhone.
The iPhone 13 Pro is the Apple smartphone to get if you want a new iPhone now, especially since it’s set to have the same chipset as the standard iPhone 14.
iPhone 14 Pro USB-C
Apple may finally go the USB-C port route with the iPhone 14 Pro, which would make sense since many of Apple’s devices already have USB-C ports. According to recent rumors, Apple will stick with Lightning over USB-C, but will switch to updated Lightning ports with faster USB 3.0 data transfer.
The EU is moving toward making USB-C the standard charger for portable devices like phones.
A USB-C port on the iPhone 14 Pro is a must-have feature for some people. The Lightning connector is arguably the worst part of the iPhone, as it wears out over time. You may have difficulty charging your phone as a result. Apple is unlikely to abandon Lightning unless it has to, given the established standard and its ecosystem of accessories.
Ming-Chi Kuo predicts Apple will switch to USB-C in late 2023, but not before then. Bloomberg reports that he is correct, so we won’t see an official USB-C iPhone until the iPhone 15.
