Design

Starting off with the design, the iPhone 14 Pro carries forward the same rear design as the iPhone 13 Pro. You get the same frosted matte finish on the rear glass, and a glossy finish around the camera module, along with the stainless steel frame that looks good, but is a fingerprint magnet.

There are three cameras on the rear on both the phones, although this year, Apple has upgraded the primary camera to a 48MP shooter. The camera bump is bigger as well. Design

However, the biggest design change is up front. The notch from the iPhone 13 Pro is gone, and is now replaced with a pill shaped cutout. Apple has also made the Face ID array smaller by 30% from last year, so the pill is considerably smaller than the notch. The bezels around the display are thinner in the iPhone 14 Pro as well, says Apple, but only by a tiny margin. In fact, the screen size of the iPhone 14 Pro is 15.54cm as compared to 15.40cm on the iPhone 13 Pro.

There’s still the same Lightning port at the bottom, along with the speaker and microphone grilles. Button placement remains the same, and there are no surprises with the power button, volume buttons, or the alert slider. It’s all exactly the same as the previous iPhones.
Display

The display of the iPhone 14 Pro is fairly similar to the iPhone 13 Pro as well, with only some very minor differences as far as the hardware itself goes. You get the same 6.1-inch screen on both phones (6.7-inch if you get the Pro Max models), and the pixel density remains the same at 460 ppi. Although the resolution of the two phones are different, due to the slightly larger screen on the 14 Pro.

The difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro is noticeable in the brightness levels of the screen. While the iPhone 13 Pro supported a typical display brightness of 1000 nits and an HDR brightness of 1200 nits, the iPhone 14 Pro has an HDR brightness of 1600 nits. Moreover, the iPhone 14 Pro display can go up to 2000 nits in outdoor conditions for better visibility.

Both displays support the 120Hz ProMotion technology. However, the iPhone 14 Pro uses a new LTPO panel, which allows the display to run as low as 1Hz, thereby enabling the long awaited Always on Display feature as well. The new phone will dim the screen and lower the refresh rate down to 1Hz to ensure that you can see notifications and the time without waking the phone completely. Apple also says that the AOD on the iPhone 14 Pro will work with live notifications as well, so if you have a timer running or the score of a game on your lock screen, it will continue updating in real time.
Performance Differences between iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro

Though the non-pro versions of the iPhone 14 come with the same A15 Bionic as last year’s iPhone 13 series, the iPhone 14 Pro brings the new A16 Bionic processor. This new chip is built on a 4nm process, which means it’s more efficient and faster than the A15 Bionic that was built on a 5nm process.

The A16 Bionic has a 6 core CPU, with the same set up as the A15 Bionic. There are 2 high-performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores to go with them. Alongside this is a 5 core GPU to power all the graphical needs of the iPhone 14 Pro. There’s also a 16-core Neural Engine that enables features such as the new Photonic engine for better photography, and other machine learning and AI features on the iPhone.

Apart from these (and the ISP), the A16 Bionic also has a Display Engine that enables features like the 1Hz refresh rate for the Always On Display, the higher (2000 nits) brightness, and even the anti-aliasing and other animations that run all through the system, and especially on the Dynamic Island.

Though we are yet to see the real-world performance of the new A16 Bionic, it’s a safe bet that it will be one of the fastest smartphone processors, and should be considerably better than the A15 Bionic that it replaces. That said, it must be noted that the A15 Bionic is no slouch by any stretch of the imagination, and it will be a solid smartphone chipset for a few more years to come.
iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island

We’ve been talking about it all through this article, so what is Dynamic Island after all? Well, thanks to the new pill + hole cut out in the iPhone 14 Pro’s display, Apple has come up with a whole new set of UI elements and user interactions that make the iPhone appear a lot more intuitive, user-friendly, and in my opinion, makes the pill not only acceptable, but downright desirable.

Basically, the iPhone 14 Pro (and Pro Max) use the area around the pill shaped cutout for things like displaying certain notifications, popping up information that would otherwise take an additional screen, and more. In the examples shown off by Apple, we can see AirDrop notifications coming up in the Dynamic Island, Face ID animations, now playing music, timers, and more.
