The rumors and leaks surrounding the iPhone 14 keep coming – we’re just a month away from the phone’s expected launch now – and the latest unofficial rumors appearing online give us an idea of what we can expect from the rear camera on the new Pro models.
According to a source speaking to a well-known informant ApplePro leaksthe 48MP rear camera sensor being introduced to Pro models this year is “the best in a smartphone if there’s enough light”, which looks promising.
Less promising is the news that night mode has “a few issues” to address before it’s ready, and is currently worse than iPhone 13Pro. Keep in mind that iOS 16 is still being tested, so optimizations are likely underway.
One source had a hands-on time with the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.(Thread)-The new tablet+hole doesn’t add anything new. It looks different but works just fine as the notch. Once you get used to it, it’s “gone”.-It’s thick. The Pro Max feels like a brick (as usual).August 14, 2022
Speakers, display and battery life
The same source confirms that the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max use a pill-and-hole design on the front screen instead of the notch, as was widely publicized. However, “it doesn’t add anything new” according to the source.
Battery life is said to be improving again this year, with the iPhone 14 Pro apparently adding a few more hours to the total (the iPhone 13 Pro is rated for 22 hours of video playback, by comparison).
The speakers have also been improved, according to this source, with better bass and improved clarity. As for the screen quality, this is broadly comparable to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max screens.
Analysis: This Year Pro Really Means Pro
While we can’t verify leaks or rumors until a device is actually released, we know which informants are more reliable than others – and as more and more information comes into the public domain, we have a general idea of what’s most likely to happen. .
From what we’ve heard about the iPhone 14 models so far, it’s the two Pro handsets – the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max – that will be the most attractive. First and foremost, they are the phones that really go have cpu updates.
Now we have news that the camera system on the Pro models is Apple’s best (despite the low-light issues). The 48MP sensor – up from 12MP in the current iPhone 13 range – is thought to be be coming only to the latest generation devices.
So you get faster internals, a significantly better camera system, and what looks like improved battery life too if you opt for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. If the price is right, they could be the iPhones to buy this year.
