The iPhone 14 Pro now powers the new Apple A16 Bionic chipset. It has a 4nm node architecture and is a noticeable upgrade over the previous A15 Bionic. This allows the chipset to decrease the power consumption while still having top-class performance.
The A16 Bionic chipset has a 6-core CPU with two high-performance cores and four power-efficiency cores. Apple claims that it can offer up to 40% better performance. It has a new 5-core GPU that Apple says offers a 50% improvement in graphics performance. There is a new 16-core Neural Engine that offers better AI and ML performance.
The iPhone 14 Pro comes with 6GB of RAM. It is available in four storage options which are 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.

The main camera has an f/1.78 aperture with a 1.22μm pixel size (2.44μm after pixel binning). It has a full-focus pixels and second-gen sensor-shift stabilization. When taking photos with the main camera, the phone shoots in 12MP due to pixel-binning technology. Due to its high resolution, the main camera can offer 2X lossless zoom which is perfect for Portrait Mode shots.
The iPhone 14 has main 48MP camera are two 12MP ultra-wide and telephoto cameras which Apple says have been improved, and a 3D LiDAR sensor.
The new 12MP ultrawide camera has a larger pixels size which allows the sensor to let in more light. This leads to sharper images and improved macro shots.
The new 12MP 3X telephoto camera with OIS now has a 7-element lens which lets you get better shots when zoomed in or taking Portrait Mode shots.
As for videos, you can record in up to 4K resolution at 24/25/30/60 fps. You can record videos in ProRes, 10-Bit HDR, and Dolby Vision HDR. There are some improvements in Cinematic Mode as you can now record in 4K resolution as opposed to 1080p.
