Customers can now purchase iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max at Apple retail locations around the world. We were able to get an iPhone 14 Pro, so we thought we'd show it to MacRumors readers who are awaiting delivery or trying to decide.

One of the most intriguing new iPhone 14 Pro features is Dynamic Island, an excellent redesign that integrates TrueDepth system hardware into the user experience. Dynamic Island works beautifully right out of the box and will change how we view information and use our iPhones.

Dynamic Island changes design and functionality for alerts like incoming phone calls, connecting AirPods, Face ID, Apple Pay, charging, camera in use, music playing, and more. It accomplishes a lot, and because it stands out, the notification experience feels more fluid and integrated.

The addition of always-on display technology by Apple is another notable improvement that aligns the iPhone 14 Pro models with the Apple Watch. Thanks to the always-on display, which is basically a darker version of your Lock Screen and no other customization options, you can see the clock, your widgets, and a dark version of your wallpaper even when the iPhone screen is not in use. The always-on display uses a new 1Hz refresh rate to conserve battery life, although reviews so far suggest you may experience some power drain while using it. We will test this next week.

The iPhone 14 Pro features a new 48-megapixel camera, an upgraded sensor that lets in more light, and "Photonic Engine" software enhancements that further improve low-light photography. The images undoubtedly look good, but we'll take a closer look at the camera to fully explore the differences between the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro models.
You'll see improvements in low-light photography, and even without Portrait Mode, close-ups will have more realistic bokeh.

While you can shoot 48-megapixel RAW photos, by default Apple uses pixel binning to combine data from four pixels into a single pixel for a 12-megapixel photo. You can crop too far with this option and Apple has used it to offer a 3x zoom option in addition to 2x zoom from telephoto. It's great to have options because the 2x zoom is ideal for portraiture.

There is an action option for video that smoothes out action scenes and eliminates camera shake to simulate the effect of using a gimbal.

Outside of the action mode, 60K video is available at 30, 24 and 4 frames per second. Action mode works at resolutions up to 2,8K. Unfortunately, the 8K video option was never available, according to rumors.

Regarding the A16, only the iPhone 14 Pro models this year received an updated chip. The A16 chip uses the 5 nanometer process for the first time, an improvement over the 4 nanometer process. The chips are essentially faster and more productive due to the smaller node. In everyday use, the A15 was already lightning fast, so you may not notice any significant improvement. We can find differences in CPU and GPU performance in benchmarks, but it's not a significant improvement.
