Apart from the slightly smaller battery, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro comes with the same hardware as the Max model – just with a much more manageable 6.1-inch display diagonal.
The resolution of the OLED panel is 2,556 x 1,179 pixels, which results in a pixel density of 463 ppi. Individual pixels cannot be seen with the naked eye – the display is excellent.
In the test, the iPhone 14 Pro impresses with a very strong maximum brightness of 1,344 candelas per square meter. We measure with a checkerboard contrast, 50 percent of the display is white. During this standardized test procedure, we could not measure the 2,000 cd/m² promised by Apple – but with a short display of a smaller white area. However, the iPhone 14 Pro gets quite warm and dims the panel. Conversely, the iPhone cannot achieve this level of brightness if it is already very warm. Finally, with more than 1,300 candelas per square meter, all content can be clearly read under direct sunlight.
As befits a smartphone in this price range, the iPhone 14 Pro fully supports the DCI-P3 color space. The white representation is also wonderfully neutral white, but color temperature fluctuations can occur due to the “True Tone” function. The iPhone thus adapts the color display to the ambient light – but this can also be switched off.
Also included is Apple’s “ProMotion” feature, which stands for a brisk refresh rate of up to 120 Hertz. The display can also reduce the frequency to match the content. It is only 10 Hertz for still texts and photos, while up to 120 Hertz are possible for gaming and scrolling.
