The iPhone 14 Pro screen arrives with changes in terms of design as well as specifications. In the field of settings, one of the highlights is the brightness of up to 2 thousand nits, optimized for using the device outdoors. Another novelty is the always-on display (Always On Display in English), which is always available with information such as time and music player. The display automatically dims when it touches a surface or is placed in a pocket.
Despite significant changes, the newly launched iPhone rescues aspects of its predecessor, such as a 6.1-inch screen, with an adaptive rate of 120 Hz provided by ProMotion technology, and an OLED panel. Thus, both are able to guarantee clear images, with faithful colors and an efficient transition between one scene and another.
The iPhone 14 Pro is slightly larger and heavier – which should make it impossible to use the same case for both models. The changes don’t stop there, as the current model’s screen comes with a pill-shaped notch to replace the old cutout. Exclusive to the Pro and Pro Max lines, the new notch is called Dynamic Island and is able to show icons, expand and interact according to usage. O TechTudo tested and liked the novelty.

The rear does not reserve significant changes between one generation and another. What does change, however, are the colors of the finish. While the iPhone 13 Pro reserves color options such as saw blue, silver, gold, graphite and alpine green, the successor has shades of space black, silver, gold and deep purple.
Coating and composition were not segments that registered changes, so the scratch and impact protection provided by Ceramic Shield can be found in both devices. Water certification, IP68, and Super Retina XDR display technology also apply to both data sheets.

- 12MP telephoto ƒ/2.8 aperture
- 12 MP front ƒ/2.2 aperture

The front cameras continue with 12 MP in both phones, but they have a slight difference in the focal aperture, which can give an advantage to the newer model in terms of capture quality. Also on the iPhone 14 Pro, the selfie sensor is located in the pill that also stores the facial recognition sensor.
As for features, the newest phone brings news like quad-pixel technology, which combines four pixels into one. In addition to optimizing the storage of photographs, which come out with 12 MP, the tool also helps to make sharper captures in dark places. But for those who work with photographs and need the expanded version, they can also have the records in 48 MP.
Continuing with the cinema mode, inaugurated in the iPhone 13 line, the 14 Pro brings video tools that guarantee quality records, such as 4K recordings at 60, 30, 25 or 24 fps (frames per second) and maintenance of the optical stabilizer. . The flash also undergoes restructuring, so adjusting the LEDs so that they can boost brightness by up to 10%.
performance and storage
As usual, Apple announced a new processor along with the new models. The difference is that, this time, only Pro models had access to it. Naturally, the iPhone 14 Pro takes the new chip (A16 Bionic) in the datasheet and has advanced functions such as a six-core CPU and a five-core GPU. The manufacturer promises a 60% better performance of the processor compared to other components available on the market.
The iPhone 13 Pro, in turn, adds the A15 Bionic, a previous version of the current chipset. Despite the downside in terms of upgrades, the penultimate release component garnered praise in terms of graphics processing and machine learning. Unlike the launch, the entire previous line was assembled with the same chip.

Differences aside, the two end up meeting in terms of storage and RAM memory. The data space, in both cases, reserves options of 128, 256, 512 GB and 1 TB, for those looking for a good size for files, photos and applications. However, they follow Apple’s standard and do not support memory card, which excludes the possibility of storage expansion.
As usual, Apple has not released official figures on RAM. This spec is estimated to be around 6GB on phones. It is worth noting that the iPhone 14 Pro invests in the LPDDR 5 standard, faster configuration in the transmission of information.
While the Pro line had benefits in terms of design and cameras, the simpler family profited in the battery field. Therefore, there are no significant differences in this regard, as both offer more than 20 hours of video playback and 75 hours of audio playback.
Recharging, with a maximum power of 20W, marks another similarity between the models. This helps in the time the phone will be in the socket, so as to reduce the charging time. The brand estimates that the devices need only 30 minutes of charge to reach 50% battery.

In common, the technical sheets bring specifications such as 5G connectivity, Wi-Fi 6 and NFC, which makes it possible to make payments by approximation without needing a card for this. On the other hand, the distinctions start with Bluetooth, as it has a more current version on the iPhone 14 Pro.
The successor to the iPhone 13 Pro arrives with a standout feature in terms of security, created to issue distress calls through short messages sent by satellite. In addition, the model sold in the North American market will waive entry for physical chips, since the only option will be eSIMs.
