The iPhone 14 Pro Will Never Be Truly Pro If the Latest Leak is True

The iPhone 14 Pro Will Never Be Truly Pro If the Latest Leak is True

The next iPhone 14 series will probably be a significant step forward, with the iPhone 14 Pro serving as the flagship device. 

The iPhone 14 Pro will include powerful cameras, a faster, modern processor, and the greatest screen technology. The iPhone 14 basic model will have an older CPU and potentially less-capable cameras to save money in situations where users may not require every high-end spec.

According to iDropNews' "unnamed sources, " the latest speculation," the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will use the same improved Lightning Port that debuted on the original iPad Pro, which employed USB 3.0 technology to deliver far-greater speeds than the aging USB 2.0 port that iPhones still use. 

While this is a significant improvement (it might result in up to ten times faster data transfer), it's still far from the rates that the USB-C ports on the current iPad Pro and iPad Air tablets can provide.



While EU regulations require Apple to use USB-C connections in its iPhones at some point, there is no set timeframe for when that will happen, and Apple is likely to fight it for as long as it can. 

Why? Because it generates so much revenue by licensing its technology to allow manufacturers to create Lightning-compatible accessories. It's made a compatibility ecosystem that any company would be hesitant to abandon. With that in mind, an iPhone with the same USB-C port as the iPad Pro appears improbable.

Pro-found Issues

This year appears to be the first for iPhones to be released with different chipsets (the iPhone 5C was released alongside the iPhone 5S, but they were very other phones), and that would be the clearest indication yet that Apple is attempting to differentiate the iPhone 14 Pro from the cheaper model. 

That's fine - and, to be honest, it makes perfect sense. For several years, the iPhone Proline has been too similar in performance and spec to the standard models, with the camera and extra RAM serving as the primary distinctions.

Making the high-end, pricey phone more powerful and enticing for creatives and others who want more oomph in their smartphone, especially if it can give things that the iPhone 14 cannot, will make the Pro a considerably simpler move for filmmakers.

If Apple continues with the Lightning port, it will be missing a significant opportunity. The USB-C connection would provide significantly quicker speeds for individuals who require them for their jobs, but not for those who want a good phone - i.e., the masses who will continue to buy Lightning accessories.

Those that would require the USB-C equipped iPhone 14 Pro, such as the creatives mentioned, would also have the necessary equipment to make use of the increased speeds, while many others would not. 

Both were linked to a USB-C connection on our laptop and could transfer a 320MB file at 8.25MB/s, while the latter reached 10.5MB/s. 

Although this isn't a significant difference (although it will save several minutes for a 20-minute 4K file), better equipment - such as high-end Macs and faster connections, such as those that creatives frequently invest in - would notice a broader gap in reading speeds.
