Hands-on with Apple’s New Launch iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

September 13, 2022

Apple officially launched the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.

New features abound on the officially released iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The revised notch, now known as the “Dynamic Island” by Apple, and the new always-on display are two of the main improvements. 

Apple is updating its pro portfolio today, in addition to the standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. The most noticeable difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max designs is at the top of the screen. The notch is being replaced with what the firm refers to as the “Dynamic Island.”

Features You Need To Know About Apple’s New Launch

  • Display

The iPhone 14 Pro Max’s flat 6.7-inch OLED display includes 120Hz ProMotion refresh rate technology and a maximum brightness of 1200 nits. Because of the unique pill-shaped notch, the iPhone 14 Pro Max boasts a greater screen-to-body ratio than standard versions.

Despite the fact that Apple seems to be using the same panel as last year, there have been some substantial internal alterations. The company has selected an LTPO panel this time. In order to enable features like always-on mode, LTPO displays can lower their refresh rate to 1Hz, as we have already known. Thanks to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro Max now has an always-on display setting.

  • Cameras

Next, let’s talk about the considerable camera enhancements in the iPhone 14 Pro Max. In its iPhone models, the company’s long-used 12MP primary sensor has been replaced by a 48MP primary sensor. To adapt to the smaller pixel size and greater lens size, Apple employs pixel binning technology in the iPhone 14 Pro Max, as it does in every other smartphone with a 48MP (or above) camera sensor on the market.

  • Always-On Mode

Apple last year added to the iPhone a much-requested feature that enables it to show information even when it is not in use, much like many new Android phones do. When the always-on option is activated, users can simply monitor the time, recent warnings, and battery levels without waking up the display. When the screen is not in use, it displays important information and seamlessly integrates with iOS 16’s Lock Screen. Even live activities are readily visible.

  • Design

From the outside, Apple’s newest large-screen smartphone, the iPhone 14 Pro Max, is identical to the iPhone 13 Pro Max (which in turn featured the same design as the iPhone 12 Pro Max). The design of the flat-edge glass sandwich is the same as the model from the previous year. It has surgical-grade stainless steel and Ceramic Shield protective glass on the front and back, just like the Pro model from the previous generation.

When you look at the back of the phone, you’ll see that both the thickness and the size of the camera sensors have increased. On the new Pro Max model, Apple is keeping the same textured, high-end finish it debuted on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The IP68 dust and water resistance of the iPhone 14 Pro Max prevents water from entering for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 6 meters.

It displays significant alerts, notifications, and activities and adjusts to the program in real-time. It keeps itself in an active state so that users can tap and hold to quickly access controls. With Dynamic Island, for instance, you may view and manage background tasks like maps, music, or a timer.

  • Battery

The iPhone 14 Pro Max is no exception to the rule that iPhone Pro Max models have the best battery life when compared to other versions. Despite not revealing the size of the battery, Apple asserts that the iPhone 14 Pro Max should have day-long battery life.

The 23W quick-linked charging capability is present in both the premium model for this year and the model for the previous year. Apple claims that it takes about 30 minutes to fully charge the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Since the Lightning port is still required for charging, Apple might not make the switch to USB-C for another 12 months.

  • Colors

In contrast to normal models, Apple’s Pro model iPhones always have muted, simple hues that seem professional. The same applies to the iPhone 14 Pro Max. It appears that the rumors of a new shade of purple have come to pass. At launch, the iPhone 14 Pro will come in four colors: space black, silver, gold, and deep purple.

Now Let’s Talk About Dynamic Island!

We were concerned that it would be easy for people to confuse the iPhone for other Android phone designs when we learned that Apple would employ a more traditional hole-in-the-screen method. Apple may have felt the same way because it has gone to great lengths to make sure that its Dynamic Island hole punch stands out.

A dynamic island a destination

The cutout is ignored by every other maker, who treats it like an unwelcome growth or malformation. Accepting the cutout and vibrantly integrating it into the operating system of the phone was a smart move made by Apple. The Dynamic Island cutout will roll, shake, and rattle while giving alerts and notifications when the phone is in use. When it goes out, an alarm bell will sound on the island. When music is playing, you can see musical notation. 

If you accidentally tap on the camera instead of the screen, don’t panic; according to Apple, the island will still reply. For instance, Dynamic Island will grow into a much more thorough flight path display when you tap on it when you see a flight alert.

There will be more than just Apple’s own apps using Dynamic Island now that Apple has made it available to third-party support. For the time being, simply looking at or tapping the Dynamic Island will allow you to read messages, answer AirDrop requests, and even follow turn-by-turn directions.
