Ever since introducing the notch with the iPhone X back in 2017, it took years before Apple adopted a change to a pill-shaped punch-hole design with the iPhone 14 Pro series. The pill-shaped punch-hole still houses a selfie camera, promixity sensors, and all the needed sensors for FaceID, but the Dynamic Island UI allows the pill-shaped punch-hole to adopt seamlessly depending on what you are doing with the phone.
The display on the iPhone 14 Pro gets an upgrade: aside from a maximum brightness of 2000nits and LTPO, Apple is finally bringing over Always-on display. To go along with the display upgrade, the iPhone 14 Pro is powered by a new A16 Bionic chip, which has a 6-core CPU, 5-core GPU, a new Display Engine, and a 16-core Neural processor–all packed within a 4nm process. Like the iPhone 14 series, the Pro models come with satellite connectivity for sending emergency texts, crash detection, and no physical SIM slots for the US models.
For the cameras, the iPhone 14 Pro is finally going for high megapixels with its use of a 48-megapixel main sensor with 2.49um pixels in quad-pixel binning mode, an f/1.78 aperture, 24mm focal length, 2nd-generation sensor shift OIS, and 100% focus pixel coverage. If want to make the most out of that new sensor, the iPhone 14 Pro allows you to shoot in ProRAW in full 48-megapixel glory.
The Ultra-wide angle camera is an upgraded 12-megapixel with a 1.4um pixel, f/2.2 aperture, 100% focus pixel coverage, and macro photography. The flash gets tweaked as well with an adaptive system that depends on the camera you are using. If you are one of those who use their phones for shooting videos, the iPhone 14 Pro’s cinematic mode lets you shoot at 4K30 or 4K24.
The iPhone 14 Pro starts at Php 70,990 for the 128GB variant, while the 14 Pro Max starts at Php 77,990 for the same storage variant. Both will soon be available in the Philippines.
