Over 2x as fast A16 chip: The A15 chip in the iPhone 13 Pro is already over 2x faster than the A11 chip in the iPhone X, according to Geekbench 5, and performance should improve even more with the A16 chip in the iPhone 14 Pro. Apple also uses a 16-core Neural Engine in the latest iPhones for faster machine learning compared to the three-core Neural Engine in the iPhone X. Larger display: iPhone X is equipped with a 5.8-inch display, while the 14 Pro is expected to have a 6.1-inch display.
The 2017 launch of the iPhone X marked a significant advancement in the iPhone. The gadget added new features including an OLED display, Animoji, wireless charging, and more while doing away with the Home button and Touch ID in favour of swipe-based navigation and Face ID. The iPhone X is still a capable smartphone even after five years. When the iPhone 14 Pro is released later this year, if you’ve been holding onto your iPhone X and are thinking about upgrading, have a look at the list below for an overview of the numerous new features and upgrades to anticipate. Along with rumoured improvements for the iPhone 14 Pro, the list also includes significant new features for the iPhone XS, 11 Pro, 12 Pro, and 13 Pro.
Much brighter display: Compared to the iPhone X, the 14 Pro’s display will have at least 375 nits higher peak brightness for standard content. No more notch: Rumors suggest Apple will replace the notch with a pill-shaped cutout and a hole for Face ID and the front camera on the iPhone 14 Pro. Heavier: The iPhone X weighs 0.38 pounds, while the iPhone 13 Pro weighs 0.45 pounds. 3D Touch removed: On the iPhone 11 Pro and newer, Apple removed the 3D Touch feature that allowed you to press deeply on the screen to pop open menus or other “hidden” features. 3D Touch was replaced with Haptic Touch, which is more limited and relies on a press-and-hold gesture instead of a deep press.
Increased storage: iPhone X started with 64GB of storage, but the 14 Pro should have at least 128GB of base storage. LiDAR Scanner: Introduced on the iPhone 12 Pro, the LiDAR Scanner is situated next to the rear camera and offers faster augmented reality experiences and improves autofocus by 6x in low-light photos and videos, according to Apple. Power Reserve for Wallet app: On the iPhone XS and newer, a Power Reserve feature lets you use transit cards, state ID cards, student ID cards, home keys, car keys, and other items stored in the Wallet app with Express Mode turned on for a short period after an iPhone has run out of battery life.
Longer battery life: Already, the iPhone 13 Pro gets 22 hours of video playback vs. 13 hours for the iPhone X, and rumors suggest that iPhone 14 Pro models could feature even larger battery capacities. Triple-lens rear camera system: While the iPhone X has a dual-lens rear camera system, the iPhone 11 Pro and newer feature a triple-lens rear camera system with an added Ultra Wide lens for zoomed-out photos.
