iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone X: Time to upgrade?
The next iPhone is coming soon and it will be a radically different device if you opt for the top-end iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. The premium ‘Pro’ range is expected to come with a new pill-shaped punch-hole display, better cameras and processor upgrades, and that’s almost certain to happen this year. For someone still using the iPhone X, the next iPhone 14 Pro will be radically different. Launched in 2017, the $1,000 iPhone X was instrumental in expanding the high-end smartphone market we know today. If you’re considering an upgrade from the iPhone X to the iPhone 14 Pro, you might be wondering: what exactly is the difference between the two models?
Here’s everything you need to know about how the iPhone 14 Pro compares to the iPhone X based on the rumors so far.
iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone X: Design
Launched five years ago, the iPhone X brought a new design language to its iPhone. In fact, the iPhone X still looks fresh with the 5.8-inch screen stretching from edge to edge; it covers the entire front, with just a slim and no home button. The new iPhones still use the basic design pattern introduced by the iPhone X, including the notch that houses FaceID. The iPhone 12 had introduced a completely flat design with the edges. Last year’s iPhone 13 didn’t really change the basic design except for a smaller notch and a different camera arrangement.
But the iPhone 14 Pro could be a completely new device from a design standpoint. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will ditch the notch this year in favor of a new punch and pill-shaped cutout. Apparently, the camera bump on the iPhone 14 Pro will be bigger to accommodate the new camera hardware. Much like the iPhone X, the iPhone 14 Pro will be rated IP68 for water resistance, won’t have a headphone jack, and will have wireless charging capabilities. Sorry folks, iPhone 14 Pro should keep Lightning port like iPhone X.
iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone X: Display
The iPhone X featured a 5.8-inch Super Retina display and while the OLED display is super bright and colorful, the panel is a far cry from what you get on the iPhone Pro models. The iPhone 14 Pro may have a much brighter panel compared to last year’s model, but will continue to have a 120Hz refresh rate and a ProMotion display. Unlike the iPhone Pro models, the iPhone X screen refreshes at 60 frames per second, or 60Hz.
iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone X: Cameras
As is usually the case with newer iPhones, cameras usually get improved capabilities and the iPhone 14 Pro will be no different. The iPhone X when it hit the market was superior to rival Android smartphones in terms of camera system, with two 12MP rear cameras – a wide-angle shooter with an f/1.8 aperture and a telephoto lens with an f/ 2.4. While the iPhone X’s camera isn’t bad, it’s a far cry from the iPhone Pro’s camera system, which not only has three lenses (a main camera, an ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a telephoto) but also superior low-light capabilities and a LiDAR sensor. In the case of the iPhone 14 Pro, the high-end smartphone is expected to feature an upgraded 48MP camera sensor, up from 12MP on previous iPhones. Apple may also upgrade the front cameras on the iPhone 14 series. There are rumors that Apple has chosen a supplier for its front camera to manufacture a premium lens.
iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone X: Processor and battery
The iPhone X’s A11 processor is fast and should be capable enough to run popular games and must-have apps for at least a year or two. But compared to the A16 chip used in the iPhone 14 Pro, the new processor will surely outperform the A11 in both benchmark tests and real-world usage. And that’s hardly surprising. Teardowns revealed that the iPhone X came with 3GB of RAM; similar teardowns revealed 6GB of RAM on more expensive iPhone Pro models.
Storage on base iPhone Pro models eventually topped out at 64GB. To put things into perspective, the iPhone 13 Pro starts at 128GB for the base model. iPhone Pro models can also connect to 5G, which the iPhone X cannot. At launch, the iPhone 14 Pro will run iOS 16 which will also be supported on the iPhone X, but we can’t say if the latter model will receive future iOS updates next year and at least. -of the.
Although Apple doesn’t talk about battery sizes, the iPhone X had a 2,716 mAh battery. This helped the phone last more than a day on a single charge. We don’t know much about the battery life of the iPhone 14 Pro, but going over to last year’s iPhone 13 Pro Max (the one with a 6.7-inch screen), this phone lasted much longer in our battery test while browsing the web on 4G. Apple has added a new MagSafe feature to its new iPhone models that lets you attach magnet-compatible accessories. The iPhone X, obviously, doesn’t have the MagSafe feature.
iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone X: Time to upgrade?
It’s been five years since the iPhone X debuted, and in all those years Apple has introduced many new features to the iPhone. If you’re considering upgrading to a new iPhone, wait until the iPhone 14 Pro hits the market in September or whenever Apple plans to hold its splashy hardware event later in the year. The iPhone 14 Pro will undoubtedly be superior to the iPhone X in every way. Will the iPhone 14 Pro cost more than the iPhone X? Absolutely. iPhone Pro models already cost north of $999, but new iPhones could see their price increase by $100, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives. Expect the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro to cost $1099 and $1199 respectively.
