The iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max are likely to be unveiled in September this year. The iPhone 14 and 14 Max are also going to be made official alongside the Pro models.

LeaksApplePro has shared some key information about the iPhone 14 Pro. At the same time, other sources have shared information about the iPhone 14’s base model and prices.
iPhone 14 Pro series new display design to offer nothing new
To recall, Apple introduced the display notch on the iPhone X, which was released in 2017. The display notch includes complex sensors for 3D facial recognition, aka Face ID. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be the first iPhones since 2017 to sport a new display design. LeaksApplePro claims that while the Pro models will sport the new pill + hole display design, it will not add anything new. The leak further claimed, “It looks different, but it pretty much works like the notch. Once you get used to it, it’s gone.“
The display quality offered by the iPhone 14 Pro models is said to be almost the same as the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max. A previous report had claimed that the Always-On Display feature would be exclusively available on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. As it is known, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will have a 6.1-inch OLED display, whereas the iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a 6.7-inch OLED display.
iPhone 14 Pro lineup to feature the best 48MP camera
Previous leaks have claimed that the iPhone 14 Pro models will have a 48-megapixel main camera, which will support 8K video recording. According to the new leak, the 48-megapixel camera will be “the best one in a smartphone if there’s enough light.” However, a substantial amount of noise has been observed in low-light photos. The tipster added that its low-light photography is worse than the iPhone 13 Pro. It appears that the company will be optimizing the low-light camera performance before launch. In terms of size, the iPhone 14 Pro models’ new camera system will be massive.
