  • In a controversial move by Apple, the non-Pro iPhone 14s now ship with last year’s A15 Bionic chip. So only the Pro iPhones get the new A16 Bionic. Further widening the gap between the Pro and non-Pro iPhones. And no, this is not an iPhone 14 thing only. It’s going to happen with every future iPhone lineup.
  • The Pro iPhones now come with a larger 1/1.3-inch camera sensor. And in one of the biggest changes to the iPhone 14 Pro series, the Pro iPhone 14s now features a high-resolution 48MP camera.
  • iPhones can now shoot 8k videos. This is as a result of the new 48MP camera on the Pro iPhone 14s. So only the Pro iPhones have 8k recording.
  • The Pro models now come with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate that can go as low as 1Hz when your screen is static to save battery.
  • One of the standout features of the new iPhones is the long-rumored Satellite Connectivity. This feature allows the iPhone 14s to send messages via a Satellite connection without the need for an internet connection.
  • Another big change to the newly released Pro iPhone lineup is the new pill shape cutout. And the introduction of Dynamic Island. It’s basically a feature that embraces the notch and uses it to display UI elements, timers, etc
  • In an unexpected move, Apple has switched to eSim only in the US. Taking out the sim tray in US iPhone 14 models only.
