While the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are expected to feature specs bump, the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to bring more groundbreaking differences.
The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are rumored to have an iPhone 4-inspired design featuring a titanium frame, circular volume buttons, and an elongated speaker grille. The front of the iPhone 14 Pro is said to have a dual punch-hole screen instead of the notch design from the iPhone X series introduced by Apple nearly 5 years ago.

The most special feature is that the iPhone 14 Pro will be equipped with a 72MP camera cluster including a 48MP main sensor accompanied by two 12MP cameras. This is Apple’s first major camera megapixel upgrade since the iPhone 6S.
Why did Apple remove the 12MP sensor after 7 years of sticking?
Apple usually only decides to change something when an improvement is really needed or the technology is ready to be implemented.
In fact, a smartphone doesn’t need to be able to take 48MP photos. For example, photos with 48-50-100MP quality will only take up more storage space without providing much benefit, when viewed on a 6-inch phone screen they should not be too different from other photos. lower resolution images. The 8MP camera was also popular before, but it wasn’t enough to do cool features like 4K video recording.
So Apple, like virtually all other manufacturers, found the 12MP sensor to strike the right balance for smartphone cameras. But in the end, why did Apple still switch to 48MP camera?
The reason is that it brings 8K video recording capabilities. In fact, very few people really need or can take advantage of 8K video, because to buy an 8K TV is often quite expensive, or for professional videographers they do not need 8K quality. But Apple is still getting ready for this.
While 8K isn’t necessary right now, this could change in the next few years. In addition, Apple needs a 48MP sensor with 8K video capabilities to serve its upcoming virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) glasses projects. In AR/VR there are basically two small screens through which you need to see the whole world so the higher the camera resolution the better. With an outstandingly powerful processor, iPhone 14 Pro is expected to do this better than other phones like Samsung or Xiaomi.
If everything goes according to plan, the iPhone 14 series will be released in September 2022, while the company’s first AR/VR headset is tipped to launch in 2023 at the earliest.
In addition, Apple will also use pixel-binning technology, whereby four pixel data will be integrated into one to allow the camera to capture more light. This means that the iPhone 14 Pro will likely still take 12MP photos by default, but users can customize the 48MP capture for more detailed photos and no loss of dynamic range.
Improvements to be expected
SuperRes Zoom is an impressive camera zoom feature on Google’s Pixel phones. Accordingly, it uses multi-frame capture technique to extract more details from the image.
While the Pixel 6 doesn’t have its own camera for optical zoom, like the iPhone 13, Google’s handset has far surpassed Apple’s flagships in zooming, all thanks to SuperRes Zoom. So hopefully this feature will appear on iPhone 14 Pro soon.
The ultra-wide-angle camera is the weakest link in the entire camera system of phones on the market today. iPhone 13 and 13 Pro are no exception, companies should invest more time and resources to make them work well in all lighting conditions. Hopefully Apple will also address this issue with the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro.
Another thing Apple needs to pay attention to with the iPhone 14 Pro is the selfie camera. Apple is now abusing the same 12MP camera sensor from the iPhone 11 onwards. The 12MP TrueDepth camera produced great photos and the best videos on any phone, but that’s 2019. Now, phones like the Pixel 6 Pro and Galaxy S22 Ultra take photos and videos. extremely competitive, surpassing the iPhone 13 Pro. Many people fear that the front camera of the next iPhone will become worse as they are rumored to be placed in a smaller notch instead of a notch.
Hopefully Apple will fix all of the above to meet user expectations with the iPhone 14 Pro.
