Iphone 14 | The Apple iPhone 14 Pro relies on cameras with Sony IMX803, IMX633 and an old sensor | apple iphone

Apple is making a lot of noise about the new 48 megapixel main camera of the iPhone 14 Pro (approx. 1,299 euros on Amazon) and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, because although this still saves photos with a resolution of 12 MP in most modes, users should achieve significantly better image quality thanks to the larger, more modern sensor.

Weibo users Feiwei has now verified which camera sensors are used in Apple’s new flagships. Accordingly, the main camera has been upgraded from the Sony IMX703 to the Sony IMX803, the sensor has grown from 1/1.7 inches to 1/1.28 inches, i.e. by a remarkable 65 percent. Individual pixels still shrink from 1.9 µm to 1.22 µm, but if photos are recorded with a resolution of 12 MP using pixel binning, the effective pixel edge length is 2.44 µm. The maximum aperture drops from f/1.5 to f/1.8, i.e. by half an f-stop.

  • Main camera: Sony IMX803 (48 MP | 1/1.28 inch | 1.22 µm)
  • Ultra wide angle camera: Sony IMX633 (12MP | 1.2.55 inch | 1.4µm)
  • telephoto camera: Sony IMX713 (12MP | 1/3.5 inch)
  • Selfie Camera: Sony IMX714 (12 MP | 1/3.6 inch | Autofocus)

The ultra-wide-angle camera is also significantly larger – the Sony IMX633 has the same 12 MP resolution as the Sony IMX772 of the iPhone 13 Pro, but the new sensor measures 1/2.55 inches, instead of 1/3.5 inches, which means pixels grow from 1.0 µm to 1.4 µm. With this camera, too, the aperture of the lens shrinks by around half a stop from f/1.8 to f/2.2, which partially negates the advantages of the larger sensor, since the light flow changes only insignificantly.


The telephoto camera has not received an upgrade, it remains with the Sony IMX714 in 1/3.5 inch format, and the 77 mm f/2.8 lens with optical image stabilization was also carried over from the iPhone 13 Pro. At least the selfie camera has been upgraded to the Sony IMX714, which, together with the faster f/1.9 lens (instead of f/2.2), which supports autofocus for the first time on an iPhone front camera, promises significantly better photos. There are also more details about the iPhone 14 Pro in our detailed test report.
