Apple iPhone 14 Pro – Expectations vs Reality

Apple iPhone 14 Pro – Expectations vs Reality

The Apple iPhone 14 Pro lays the foundation for the iPhone line’s future. It transforms a possible drawback, like the notch, into a fascinating new user experience. Apple finally puts the phone on an even playing field with rivals by adding a 48MP camera, with adaptive (refresh-rates). Apple also beats everyone to the stratosphere with satellite-enabled connectivity.
Even in the face of mocking from rivals like Samsung,
Apple has always stood up for the notch containing the powerful TrueDepth module.

The Pro series also receives adjustable refresh rates that can quickly shift from 1Hz to 120Hz and an always-on display.

iPhone 14 Pro: Design

On the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple kept the design of the iPhone 13 Pro, which dates back to the iPhone 12. It still features the stainless steel ring around the glass front and back as well as the three-camera square array with the smaller LiDAr sensor that is now instantly recognized. Although not precisely identical, the proportions are quite near to those of the iPhone 13 Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro is only somewhat longer and thicker than the iPhone 13 Pro, measuring 147.5mm x 71.5mm x 7.85mm. It is also 2 grams heavier at 206 grams.

Apple is replacing it with Dynamic Island, a large pill-shaped cutout that houses the Face-ID sensors and the front camera. It’s tasteful, unoffensive, and a fantastic change from the usual, providing something a little unique. But more than that, it serves a purpose. The dynamic island, which is shaped like a pill, may be customized to display tiny symbols and information from an open app like Apple Music or the clock. The Dynamic Island will divide if you’ve opened two applications, but if you tap and hold it for a bit, it will grow and give you more options.

The volume controls and the silent slider are still located on the left edge. Like its earlier versions, the iPhone 14 Pro is IP68 water and dust-proof, but this year’s model comes in new color variations, including Deep Purple,  Gold, Silver, and Space Black choices are still available.


The Apple iPhone 14 Pro boasts some fantastic display upgrades in addition to aesthetic modifications. 14 Pro has a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, which is the same size as the iPhone 13 Pro. The pixel density is 460ppi due to the resolution of 2556 x 1179 pixels.

Many of the same technologies are also included, such as True Tone, HDR support, and Apple’s Haptic Touch. Pro-Motion is also supported, although there have been enhancements made with an adaptive refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz rather than 10Hz and 120Hz as it was with the iPhone 13 Pro. The Always On Display, which is the second massive breakthrough alongside Dynamic Island, is facilitated as a result.

The time, for instance, or (Activity-Rings) remains on the screen in a colored, faded style without you turning it on. An Always On Display is not a major problem for Android users. It has been a feature of Android smartphones for years, not only flagships but also mid-range and low-cost phones. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the first Apple phones to use the technology, so it’s thrilling for iPhone lovers even though Apple has provided the capability on its Apple Watch since the Series 5.


the iPhone 14 Pro’s back camera continues to be a three-lens-setup with a Lidar sensor in the upper left corner. The camera housing’s borders perfectly blend into the rest of the back glass panel since the iPhone 13 Pro’s rear is made up of a single glass panel. Additionally, the camera housing stands out from the rest of the frosted back by having a glossy surface.

  • Triple rear camera (48MP+12MP+12MP)
  • Photonic Engine
  • 12MP front camera (f/1.9, autofocus)

A primary camera, an ultrawide camera, and a telephoto camera make up the triple rear camera setup on the back.
However, several improvements have been made. A 48-megapixel sensor has replaced the 12-megapixel sensor in the primary camera. Four pixels are combined to create a quad-pixel sensor, which aims to get superior low-light results from a bigger sensor. In addition, the 12-megapixel ultra wide-angle and 12-megapixel telephoto cameras have been updated.
Apple has also included a feature called Photonic Engine that promises to enhance photographs taken in low light. It is essentially the same type of artificial intelligence (AI) that other manufacturers have used to generally improve the quality of pictures taken by all of your cameras, including the front.
The 12-megapixel front camera on the iPhone 14 Pro has a larger aperture, which should result in better low-light photos.

Hardware and specs

  • A16 Bionic chip, 16-core Neural Engine
  • Satellite connectivity
  • 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, 1TB

The A16 Bionic chip has been upgraded in the iPhone 14 Pro. A 6-core CPU with two performance cores and four efficiency cores, as well as a 5-core GPU, are both featured on the 4nm chipset. A 16-core Neural Engine is also included.

Satellite connection is also available on the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. In essence, this means that the 14 Pro will let you text emergency services when there is no phone signal. For the time being, this is only available to residents of the US and Canada, starting two years are free.

The iPhone 14 Pro’s storage choices are the same as those of the iPhone 13 Pro. starting at 128GB, with 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB options.

iPhone 14 Pro: eSIM support

Regarding e-SIM functionality, Apple has boasted about the simplicity with which users can easily switch between several eSIMs and add carriers without going to a physical location. Since dual eSIM is supported, no physical SIM card is required. The most recent iPhone series does not have a SIM tray.

It’s the first iPhone series to only use eSIM. Apple tried its best to make the eSIM setup on the iPhone 14 Pro appear simple during the presentation.

Is Esim compatible with the Asian/Indian version?
Apple has announced that these two capabilities would not be included on the iPhone 14 Series that will be sold in India and many parts of Asia.


The 23 hours of battery life for video playing that Apple claims sound fantastic. the company didn’t enhance its ability to quickly charge. If you use a 20W charger, you may still receive 50% of the charge in that time. Sincerely, I had hoped for more.


14 Pro runs on iOS 16, which comes with a number of new features, most notably the Lock Screen. Of course, the iPhone 14 Pro isn’t the only device running iOS 16. The software is accessible on iPhones 8 and beyond. however, the iPhone 14 Pro has a few extra capabilities, mostly in the form of Dynamic Island and a few camera functions, such as ProRAW.

Expectations vs Reality of Apple iPhone 14 Pro

All phone brands working to remove the notch from the display but Apple…

Samsung and other company that makes flagship phones is developing technology that would eliminate a notch or punch hole from the device’s front display. A camera system will be built underneath the display and take photos transparently. However, in this case, Apple is debuting a new pill-shaped display hole. That user had no expectation of such behavior from Apple.

Same old back look & design.

On the back of the iPhone, there is the same triple camera setup design and there is a noticeable camera bump same design has been carrying forward since iPhone 11, which appears to be a dead design compared to other flagship phones. in the name of something new, they had added a lidar sensor with a triple camera setup.
There was a lot of anticipation before the iPhone 14 model’s release that consumers will receive a new iconic camera illustration.

Only a 120hz refresh rate displays others running on 144hz

Only a 120Hz screen refresh rate is available in Apple’s most recent model, which is inferior to competing with Android phones introducing the highest 144Hz refresh rate on the market.

Running slow on chips too

Also, Apple has lost the battle for 4nm chipsets since other flagship phones have emerged in the last year using 4nm chipsets.


Unquestionably, out of the four new iPhone 14 versions, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro is the most intriguing. It has a new look, as well as camera, CPU, and display advancements. The battery is also said to last longer, and Dynamic Island is almost awesome. The iPhone 14 Pro has been set up to be the finest iPhone.
The iPhone 14 Pro is still a new potentially intriguing addition in a long history of iPhone advances when seen as a whole, though.
