After what seems like an era, Apple has finally killed the infamous display (for the iPhone Pro, at least) and added something that feels really new and innovative. Using a clip to add functionality rather than taking up screen space struck me as rather clever.
I am now in the lucky position of being able to get the latest iPhone for testing. But even so, I had no desire to upgrade; At best, I’ll sometimes take a curious look at Richard Brady iPhone 14 Pro Maxbut a little more than that.
The reason for this is that Apple simply hasn’t done enough to justify an inconsequential upgrade.
Look beyond the dynamic island and the design of the iPhone 14 Pro is basically the same iPhone 12 Pro. This isn’t terrible, as the flat-edged design brought over by the previous phone is pretty cool. But it is not difficult to change the step between say Google Pixel 7 And the Pixel 5. With the new display features, Apple could have opted for a more modern design with the iPhone 14 Pro.
As for the 48MP main camera upgrade, which is a noticeable boost to the previous iPhone’s 12MP camera, it initially caught my eye. but who More Tom’s Guide Tests, I’m not convinced it offers a huge upgrade over its predecessor; This is mainly because Apple’s computational photography is so good.
The iPhone 14 Pro also outputs a 12MP photo through pixel binning, which in practice means that the photos it delivers aren’t a huge step away from those of the 13 Pro. And if I wanted a high-resolution camera, I’d probably shell it out Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Because I feel it has a more versatile camera system, or simply pick my DSLR.
The video is great on the iPhone, but I’m not convinced there’s been much of a step going from the iPhone 13 Pro to the 14 Pro.
Speaking of steps, the iPhone 14 Pro has Apple’s new A16 Bionic chip. It’s a powerhouse, but I bet a good amount that no one will notice the difference between it and the iPhone 13 Pro’s A15 Bionic in everyday use; The older chip is still a speed demon.
And so we come to the dynamic island. It looks really flashy and interesting. But as Priday and content director Mark Spoonauer both pointed out, there isn’t a huge amount of app support for it yet.
Seen in action, Dynamic Island is cool but still looks very much like a first-gen feature. I’m glad Apple did something new here, but I’ll wait iPhone 15 Or an iPhone 15 Pro before everything got dynamic with my iPhone.
I’ve also seen quite a few people with an iPhone 14 Pro, and my partner has one. But I haven’t seen her or others use the dynamic island. It seems to me that there is a learning curve or step change in phone behavior that needs to be part of our smartphone vocabulary before Dynamic Island really begins; Right now, it looks like a sharper cut than the notch could be said to have been.
All of this aside, my iPhone 13 Pro is still a great phone. After, after Switch to iPhone from Android Last year, I completely took over Consistent iOS experienceExcellent camera performance, as well Stylish size and design (There are better Android devices out there but you’ll really need a big 6.7-inch phone to get the most out of it.)
this Not to say that the iPhone 13 Pro is flawless, far from it. But it’s so easy to use, that it’s a little boring, and I have no real desire to stop using it as my everyday phone. And there isn’t enough iPhone 14 Pro display to warrant an upgrade. I also realize my unwillingness to get another phone when the phone I own is so much for what I need from a smartphone that at some point we have to start considering the environmental impact of the constant iteration on smartphones.
As for me, I’ll wait for the iPhone 15, with its slanted USB-C port and hopefully more dramatic upgrades. For iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Ultra We’ve also heard about a possible new periscope lens that could finally give the iPhone lineup powerful zoom.
