5 Unique Apple iPhone 14 Pro Features that non-Pro models Lack

Apple usually sticks to its definitive formula: re-release iPhones with iterative upgrades and not make too many waves. But the iPhone 14 Pro series is the first to bring radical upgrades to the lineup in the past few years. Where there was once chiefly a matter of extra screen real estate, this year, Apple has also drawn a sharper line between its Pro and non-Pro models. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max feature a fresh aesthetic, display upgrades, and better cameras — all powered by an ultra-efficient chip.

Do More with the Dynamic Island

The new pill housing — and the accompanying Dynamic Island — is the most obvious update on the iPhone 14 Pro. Dynamic Island is a floating widget that blends into the camera housing, transforming the visual obstruction into a feature.


It’s a lively, interactable window that resizes to show music controls, timers, voice notes, AirDrop, Maps directions, battery life, popup notifications, and more. The Dynamic Island is already a fan favorite since many copycats have cropped up.

ProMotion for iPhone

Next, the display on the new iPhone 14 Pro is simply stunning. Smooth 120Hz displays have been an essential feature in flagship Androids for years, but Apple seems to have taken its sweet time for the technology to mature. The iPhone 14 Pro rocks a super bright 120Hz ProMotion screen for a smoother, lifelike UI/UX experience. It can dynamically drop all the way down to 1Hz, depending on the content you’re viewing.

Always On Display

The LTPO AMOLED panel behind the iPhone 14 Pro screen is a low-powered solution that supports the Always-On-Display (AOD) at a higher new iPhone price point. Once enabled, it shows a clock and notifications without waking the phone as soon as you pick it up.

New Cameras

The iPhone 14 Pro is also the first to use a high-res sensor for its cameras. The primary lens has a large 48MP sensor behind it that bins to 12MP shots. With better resolution, the iPhone 14 Pro can pack more details and pixels into an image than ever. 

Apple promises better performance in low and dim light conditions too. Plus, the camera app has an Action Mode offering advanced gimbal-like stabilization. 

Longer Battery Life

Then there’s the new A16 Bionic chip inside the iPhone 14 Pro. It’s thin silicon, designed to deliver max efficiency. Coupled with the new low-powered display, the chip provides true all-day battery life. You can get up to 23 hours of video playback on a single charge.
