We’ve reached a point where it’s hard for phone manufacturers to keep some of their secrets secret. Most major releases are corrupted by endless leaks and rumors before their official introduction. This turns technological notes into mundane events that herald mainly expected and known products. We can no longer experience the element of surprise we are used to - at least for the most part. The iPhone 14 range is more than a few months away. These state-of-the-art Apple smartphones may not be announced until September 2022. However, we already know a lot about them and what they can pack. Here are all the details about iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

It is difficult to say the exact release date of a particular Apple product before the company makes it official. However, Apple has a habit of launching new state-of-the-art iPhone ranges in the fall. He usually reveals these smartphones during an event that takes place sometime in September. Assuming no internal hiccups, we should see the iPhone 14 range in September 2022.
Once Apple makes this range official, key regions such as the US and Europe will probably be able to pre-order the phone. It should then be shipped in about 2-3 weeks. Other countries tend to gain access in the coming weeks.
There’s no way to accurately predict the price of an unreleased Apple device. Although the tech giant in Cupertino tends to stay in the same price range with each annual release. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max start at $ 1,000 and $ 1,100, respectively. So the equivalent of the iPhone 14 should cost around the same goes - if we were to make an assumption.
IPhone 14 Pro models
Apple typically includes four iPhones in its high-end range - iPhone Mini, iPhone, iPhone Pro, iPhone Pro Max. That could change later this year, unfortunately. It seems that the company will give up the Mini in favor of a regular Max variant. However, this does not affect the iPhone Pro, as the options of the Pro and Pro Max models should remain as they are. They will probably have 6.1 and 6.7-inch screens, respectively.
One of the most interesting things about the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is that it could lower the notch. It is rumored that these two phones will switch to a perforated design and pills. We could also see more rounded corners when we conspired with the usual iPhone 14 or iPhone 13 line models. Besides, expect these two control panels to have a thicker unevenness of the camera - thanks to the improved sensor.
It is difficult to predict the exact colors that Apple is looking for before the official launch. However, we can guess what the organization might look like. The company typically uses brighter colors with a glossy glass back on regular iPhones and spare parts more serious colors for Pro models with matte back. Spatial gray, white and gold are usually a safe assumption. In addition, rumors indicate a potential iPhone 14 Pro Purple. We’ll have to wait until the event to know for sure. It is also worth noting that the company sometimes launches new colors for the iPhone about 6 months after the initial launch. So, if you’re wondering what these colors might look like, wait until the beginning of 2023.
Display and notches
Good night, we have some good news for you - assuming you’re willing to pay for a Pro model. Apple could drop the notch iPhone 14 Pro (6.1 inches) and iPhone 14 Pro Max (6.7 inches). It seems that these phones will have a perforated design and pills that remain exclusively. If you decide to buy one of the regular models, then you will probably have to deal with the same notch currently present on the iPhone 13.
iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will eventually get support for the permanent display (AOD) feature. It looks like this addition was planned for the iPhone 13, but has been pushed to the next version.
Apple usually introduces a new one A chip with each major phone launch. While regular iPhone 14 models are expected to keep the same A15 Bionic from the iPhone 13, Pro models could receive an improved chip that isn’t even part of A series. What this chip will be called or how strong it will be remains unclear at this time. Finally, from now on, Apple could aim to distinguish between the performance of ordinary and Pro iPhones.
The Cupertino tech giant has been using a 12 MP Wide sensor on its iPhones for several years. That could finally change with the launch of this year’s iPhone 14 Pro. Apple could upgrade to a 48 MP sensor. This would further enhance the photo and video capabilities of the iPhone Pro. The updated camera will likely be excluded from regular iPhone 14 models.
iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will most likely run iOS 16 out of the box. Apple could launch them with iOS 16.1 preinstalled instead. This has happened in recent years and it all depends on the development of iOS 16. However, these two smartphones should receive software updates for many years from now.
Battery, charging and ports
In the battery department, Apple does not share much when it comes to technical specifications. Instead, it shares the estimated time that a device will take on a single charge for a given task. This usually means about 18 hours of video playback on state-of-the-art iPhones. What matters, though, is that this device will probably last you all day - without having to half charge. This assumes that you are using a moderate phone. We don’t expect the iPhone 14 to have a significantly longer or shorter battery life.
When it comes to charging, expect this phone to stick to the Lightning port. Rumors suggest that Apple will not switch to USB Type-C on the iPhone until at least 2023. Obviously, it is almost guaranteed that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will also accept the MagSafe and Qi wireless charging standards.
- This year’s iPhone range could support emergency satellite communications. The feature would allow you to request help without services areas if an accident occurs.
- Finally, the company could include a car accident detection tool that calls the emergency services when it is triggered. Apple Watch users can already take advantage of Drop Detection, and the feature mentioned above might work similarly.
The iPhone 14 range will be launched in September 2022 - assuming that Apple follows its usual schedule. Given that we are a few months away from this, much could change inside. The company may abandon plans or introduce new ones before seeing the official product. Anyway, hopefully the tech giant in Cupertino has some tricks up its sleeve and will surprise us during the launch event.
