In terms of practicality, you get the similar IP68 water and dust protection on both the 14 Pro and 13 Pro, and both use the Lightning connector.

Security

Both phones have Face ID security system with same sensors inside are the same despite having new i-shape replacement of notch on the 14 Pro, and Face ID will work just like it did on the 13 Pro.

Refresh Rate

The Apple will also be improving the LTPO technology that enables a variable refresh rate. The 13 Pro features an LTPO screen that progressively refreshes between 10Hz to 120Hz, the 14 Pro is expected to have upgraded version that will go from 1Hz to 120Hz, which means less power utilization.

New Feature

Apple is adding an always-on display software feature to the iPhone 14 Pro.  This will evidently allow you to add widgets to your screen in iOS 16 on your phone even when it’s locked, helpful to have a quick glance at updates.

Cameras

The iPhone 13 Pro camera system has three 12MP sensors while iPhone 14 Pro main camera has an exciting update of higher resolution 48MP sensor that is replacing the current 12MP one, in iPhone 13 Pro and on account of its bigger size, that camera knock on the back is supposed to turn out to be much greater. With this update, you will be able to capture high-resolution photos with incredible details, but additionally the possibility to record 8K video, which might just be the signature camera component of the 14 Pro.

Other Cameras

iPhone 14 Pro’s second and third cameras, remain the same 12MP ultra-wide and telephoto as the iPhone 13 Pro. The iPhone 14 Pro’s selfie camera will get a convenient update as well. It’ll acquire autofocus capabilities and more extensive f/1.9 gap, which ought to deliver a more articulated profundity of-field impact and further developed Face Time calls.

We also expect to see improvements to Cinematic Mode in iPhone 14 Pro, which launched last year in iPhone 13 Pro. The feature that blurs the background in video much like Portrait Mode for photos, but only works in 1080p and often has visible artifacts, which we hope to see fixed.

Processor

The iPhone 13 Pro has stayed the quickest performing phone on the market with its speedy A15 Bionic chip but now The iPhone 14 Pro is going to have upgraded processor as A16 Bionic,4nm. We expect modest boost in performance as the new chip will supposedly be based on same N5P process as the ancestor.

RAM

With the same 6GB of RAM on board, Apple iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to be using the faster LPDDR5 memory, another upgrade over the LPDDR4X used in iPhone 13 pro model.

Internal Storage

The storage option is going t remain same for the new Pro as 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB as potential limit.

iPhone 14 Pro expected battery size is 3,095mAh or more while iPhone 13 Pro battery size is 3,095mAh. The 13 Pro maximizes at 20W charging, and that implies a full top-up with a viable charger requires close to 2 hours. We anticipate about similar rates and charging times on the 14 Pro.

However, anticipate no progressions regarding the items in the box: a Lightning cable to USB-C link will be incorporated, yet there will be no charger inside.
