In the previous iteration, The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max feature a 48-megapixel quad-pixel sensor, a huge jump from the 12-megapixel sensor. This translates into great performance in low light conditions, more detailed zoom, and full integration with the ProRAW format for higher levels of detail.
Photos benefit from the new adaptive flash, which is twice as bright as other iPhone flash systems. As for video, there’s a new “Motion Mode” that automatically applies gimbal-like stabilization to fast-moving footage.
According to lot of today’s announcements, the new iPhone 14 Pro is more indispensable for everyday task, creative project’s which includes collision detection software and a satellite based SOS mode when you’re traveling in areas without WiFi or cellular.

Powerful Camera Upgrades Enabled by Photonic Engine
With a new 12MP Main camera, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus introduce a new standard for photo and video capture featuring a larger sensor and larger pixels, a new front TrueDepth camera, the Ultra Wide camera to capture more of a scene, and Photonic Engine for a giant leap in low-light performance.
Through a deep integration of hardware and software, Photonic Engine improves mid- to low-light performance for photos across all cameras: up to 2x on the Ultra Wide camera, 2x on the TrueDepth camera, and an impressive 2.5x on the new Main camera. Photonic Engine allows this dramatic increase in quality by applying the computational benefits of Deep Fusion earlier in the imaging process to deliver extraordinary detail, and preserve subtle textures, provide better color, and maintain more information in a photo.
Dual-camera system upgrades and features include:
- A new Main camera with a huge ƒ/1.5 aperture and 1.9 µm pixels, allowing photo and video improvements in all lighting scenarios for greater detail and motion freezing, no loud noise, faster exposure times, and sensor shift optical image stabilization.
- A new Action mode for amazing smooth-looking video that adjusts to significant shakes, motion, and vibrations, even when video is being captured in the middle of the action.
- The Ultra Wide camera, giving a unique perspective for wider shots and improvements to low-light photos with Photonic Engine.
- An improved True Tone flash that is 10 percent brighter and has greater uniformity for more consistent lighting.
- Cinematic mode, now available in 4K at 30 fps and 4K at 24 fps.
- A new front True Depth camera with an ƒ/1.9 aperture that allows greater low-light performance for photos and video. Making use of autofocus for the first time, it can focus even faster in low light and capture group shots from farther away.
- End-to-end Dolby Vision HDR, available only on iPhone.
