The Apple iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max should be able to record 8K videos in Apple ProRes, while photos from the main camera should also require significantly more storage space due to the 48 megapixel sensor. If you want to fully exploit the possibilities of the camera system of Apple’s next-generation flagships, you obviously have to dig deep into your pockets.
Because the analyst Jeff Pu, contrary to earlier information from TrendForce specified, that the iPhone 14 Pro should continue to be offered with 128 GB of memory instead of at least 256 GB of memory. Surcharges will apply for the models with 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB of storage. On the iPhone 13 Pro (approx. 1,060 euros on Amazon) this memory limitation also meant missing features: Recording ProRes video clips in 4K resolution is simply not possible with the cheapest iPhone 13 Pro. It can therefore be assumed that customers will also have to buy one of the more expensive versions of the iPhone 14 Pro in order to be able to use all the functions.
That tight storage is sobering after iPhone 14 Pro prices are set to rise. Historically, Apple has always been very economical with the storage of the basic iPhone models – the iPhone 6s came onto the market with 16 GB of storage, while 128 GB of storage only became standard with the iPhone 12 Pro. Still, based on supply chain data, Jeff Pu expects Apple to manufacture a total of 91 million iPhone 14-series smartphones in the second half of 2022, seven million more than the iPhone 13 last year.
