The main novelty of the last autumn presentation of Apple was the new flagship smartphone of the company – iPhone 14 Pro.

The device received a number of unique and exclusive chips that significantly distinguish it from last year’s flagships.

To the point: What is the difference between iPhone 14 and iPhone 13. All the nuances

Now we will conduct a detailed comparison of devices and find all even the smallest differences.

1. Housing and dimensions

Dimensions of the new iPhone 14 Pro constitute 147.5 x 71.5 x 7.85mmwith weight – 206 g. The front of the gadget has a coating Ceramic Shieldthe frame is made of surgical stainless steel.

The body is protected according to the standard IP68the gadget will withstand deep diving up to 6 meters no longer 30 minutes.

Now the device is available in four colors: black, white, gold and purple.

Last year’s flagship iPhone 13 Pro has dimensions: 146.7 x 71.5 x 7.65mm and weight 204 g. The front panel is covered with a protective layer
Ceramic Shielddevice frame made of surgical steel.

The gadget has protection according to the standard IP68 and can withstand deep diving up to 6 meters on the 30 minutes maximum.

There are five colors to choose from: graphite, silver, gold, blue and green.

Who looks better: changes inside the new gadget affected the dimensions. The Cupertino team could not fit the iPhone 14 Pro into the case of last year’s “trinashki”, the size of the device, although slightly, increased. Outwardly, such changes will be barely noticeable, but the old covers are likely to be put on with a creak.

The difference between the devices is only in the color options, which last year’s gadget has one more option.


New iPhone 14 Pro equipped with a matrix with a diagonal 6.1″. It is well proven in previous devices Super Retina XDR matrix. Permission is 2532 x 1170 pixels at density 460 ppi.

Technologies supported HDR, true tonewide color gamut (P3), the maximum brightness is 1000 nitsand the peak value can reach 2000 nits. Option supported ProMotion with update rate up to 120 Hz.

The main difference between the novelty was the rejection of the usual bangs in favor of new dynamic island. Kupertinovtsy not only left a cutout at the top of the display, but programmatically beat it in different operating scenarios.

Depending on the running application, the activated operating mode or the program options, a special animation will be used. In this case, the cutout for the camera will remain inside the dynamic zone, visually masking and hiding in it.

Another significant difference of the screen is the technology support Always On. The option is implemented in the original Apple style and differs from a similar chip from the world Android. The screen in idle mode will dim, darken most of the picture, and minimize the refresh rate.

Old iPhone 13 Pro has a screen of the same size. it 6.1″ matrix Super Retina XDR with permission 2532 x 1170 pixels and density 460 ppi.

Same technologies supported HDR, true tone and wide color gamutP3). The maximum brightness in normal mode is 1000 nitsand the peak in HDR mode is only 1200 nits.

There is a dynamic change in the refresh rate ProMotion before 120 Hz.

At the top of the display there is already familiar bangs. Although it has become smaller in comparison with the iPhone 12 model range, it still takes up quite a lot of space.

Who has a better screen? according to the main indicators, the displays of the devices are identical. They have the same dimensions, resolution, production technology and picture quality. The new smartphone boasts a higher peak brightness rating and, more importantly, supports the option Always On.

The new cutout at the top of the display of the novelty also stands out. Instead of the usual boring bangs, this is a dynamic island, which is programmatically decorated in different smartphone modes.

3. Processor and stuffing

heart iPhone 14 Pro became a new mobile processor Apple A16 Bionic. This is a 4-nanometer chip that includes 16 billion transistors and is capable of performing up to 4 trillion operations per second.

The processor is made up of 6 cores: 2 productive and 4 energy efficienthas 5 GPU cores and a 16-core system Neural Engine.

Storage models available 128, 256, 512 GB or 1 TB. The exact amount of RAM of new products is still unknown, most likely, these are the same 6 GBas in last year’s device.

Last year’s flagship iPhone 13 Pro running under the control of the processor Apple A15 Bionic. This 5nm chip contains 15 billion transistors. It consists of 6 corestwo of which are productive, and the remaining four are energy efficient.

As in the novelty, the processor has 5 GPU cores and a 16-core system Neural Engine.

Four drive options are available: 128, 256, 512 GB or 1 TB. Devices are equipped with a RAM module with a capacity of 6 GB.

Who has the best stuffing? the new iPhone 14 Pro, although it has a more powerful and technologically advanced processor, can only see real superiority in synthetic tests.

In practice, the power of both devices is enough for any task and even the most demanding games.

4. Cameras

One of the important innovations iPhone 14 Pro has become an updated block of the main cameras of the smartphone. The main module was heavily pumped, replacing the 12-megapixel matrix ƒ/1.5 at 48 megapixel wide ƒ/1.78. It is complemented by over-width ƒ/2.2 and telephoto ƒ/2.8.

There is nothing outstanding in the last two modules, but the main module has received such a significant upgrade for the first time in recent years. The matrix has grown 65%the new focal length is used 24 mm. If necessary, you can use pixel binning to get a high quality 12 megapixel image during night shooting.

The new sensor allows you to get 2x zoom thanks to the crop of the main frame on a 48-megapixel sensor without connecting a telephoto lens.

The camera is equipped with an optical stabilization system Sensor shift second generation and supports the new chip Photonic Engine for better detail shooting in low light. Supported shooting in Apple ProRAW up to 48 MP.

Cinematic video shooting mode supports resolution 4K at 30fps. Added new video mode action mode to stabilize dynamic scenes.

The front camera received an improved lens 12 MP ƒ/1.9got support Photonic Engine and filming cinematic mode in 4K.

Camera iPhone 13 Pro has a triple block of 12-megapixel sensors. Shirik ƒ/1.5overwide ƒ/1.8 and telephoto ƒ/2.8. The camera is equipped with an optical stabilization system Sensor shift first generation.

Available 3x zoom zoom when switching to a telephoto lens and 2x zoom distance with switching to ultra wide. On-site support for software chips deep fusion and Smart HDR 4.

Unlike what’s new in 2022, filming in cinematic mode is supported only in 1080p at 30fps.

The front camera consists of a 12-megapixel module ƒ/2.2. Of course, it does not support the new option Photonic Engine and Cinematic mode in 4K.

Who has the best camera? such a major update definitely makes the new camera more technologically advanced and promising. However, most of the new features and options will be useful only for professionals and amateurs of serious photo post-processing.

When shooting in automatic mode without further enhancement, the footage will be of comparable quality to the previous flagship. You will have to try hard to find serious differences.

5. Other differences

◆ An important innovation of the new iPhone 14 Pro is satellite communication support. However, the option is only available for emergency calls, works in the United States and Canada (launching in November) and requires a subscription. The first two years the option will be provided free of charge.

◆ Another notable difference between all the new products presented is car accident detection system. The option can accurately determine the type of car accident and make a call to emergency services.

◆ A module is installed in new smartphones Bluetooth 5.3 (instead of Bluetooth 5.0 for last year’s flagships).

◆ The sensors of the device received a small update: a more accurate gyroscope, accelerometer and light sensor.

◆ With more power efficient processor increased battery life. The increase is small, at the level of 1 hour of video playback.

◆ In the US, new iPhone 14 Pro models will ship without a physical SIM slot.

All differences briefly

▶ The dimensions of the devices are practically the same. The new model is slightly taller and thicker than last year’s. Much more important is the presence of an additional color in a smartphone in 2021. It is definitely not worth choosing a gadget by this parameter.

▶ The screen is the most important difference between devices. It’s not about physical size and resolution (they don’t differ), but about support Always On and the dynamic island of the novelty.

▶ The filling differs, as always, by one generation of the Apple processor. 4nm chip A16 Bionic although it wins in synthetic tests, in practical tasks it will not differ much from its predecessor.

▶ Cameras have become perhaps the main difference between new smartphones and last year. Most seriously pumped the main module, which received 48-megapixel matrix. In addition to the increased size, several software modes have been added to get better photos and videos.

▶ Other differences include support for satellite communications (in the US) and automatic detection of car accidents with the participation of the smartphone owner.

All the differences between iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro

As usual, Cupertino stopped the official sales of last year’s flagships, replacing them with a couple of new ones. The price has remained the same: $999 and $1099 in the USA. Resellers still have the old line on sale iPhone 13 Pro.

The start of sales is scheduled for 16 of Septembermost likely, in a few days after that, gadgets will appear in Russia.
