Apple announces the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, now featuring a new Dynamic Island, an Always-On display, and the A16 Bionic chip.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max feature surgical-grade stainless steel and textured matte glass designs. It comes in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes. Both models have a new Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion which dynamically changes the refresh rate from 1Hz to 120Hz, depending on what’s on the screen.
The Dynamic Island enables new ways to interact with iPhone Pro models. It’s essentially a notification area around the pill-shaped notch that shows important alerts, notifications, and other activities.
The Pro models also offer a list of display technologies, such as the new Always-On display for the first time on iPhones, up to 2000 nits of brightness, True Tone, Dolby Vision, HDR, Haptic Touch, and of course, Ceramic Shield protection.

At the back, the Pro models have a quad camera setup with a 48MP main with quad pixel sensor and a 2nd gen sensor-shift optical image stabilization, alongside a 12MP ultra-wide, a 12MP 3x zoom telephoto, and a 12MP 3x zoom telephoto. It supports Photonic Engine which improves mid- to low-light performance. There’s also a 12MP camera for selfies hidden on the pill-shaped notch.
