On Thursday, September 8, 2022, Apple announced the launch of its advanced Pro line of phones, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The Pro models come with a redesigned pill-shaped display cutout around which Apple has added a Dynamic Island for alerts and live activity tracking.
Interestingly enough, both the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max remove the SIM tray for US models, allowing users to set up their device faster and easier.
What’s new in the iPhone 14?
With the introduction of Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less viewing area. Without interfering with on-screen content, Dynamic Island maintains an active state to give users easier access to controls with a simple tap and hold.
The Dynamic Island is a black contextual box that will now appear around the cutout of the iPhone 14. This means users can toggle Do Not Disturb (DND) mode, track the duration of their phone calls, check the battery life in their AirPods, or even display a sports score.
The new addition to the Proline includes advanced features such as 4K support in Cinema Mode, crash detection, water and dust resistance, and satellite communications available through the iPhone 14 line. What is noticeable is that the new iPhone Pros have a smaller notch, as the new built-in cameras are now 30% smaller. In addition, the space around the cutout has been changed to provide easier access to controls for running background activities such as maps, music or a timer.
