The flow of rumors from the Asian production circuits leaves little doubt as to what Apple is preparing for the end of the year. As usual, the brand should indeed unveil its new premium iPhone collection. Within these, we would find as today two models stamped “Pro”.
Their advantage, if the manufacturer does not deviate from its habits, will reside above all in the integration of two additional sensors on the back. The first is a telephoto which allows you to take great macro photos, while the second is a LiDAR. The latter is preferred for night shots or to improve augmented reality apps.

Moreover, no major improvement on the horizon: we keep the format of the iPhone 13, the buttons on the side and the apple logo in the middle of the back shell.

But the gain in display area is even greater with the iPhone 14 Pro, where the notch is well and truly abandoned to be replaced by a duo punch + pill.
A solution that is certainly still more protruding than with many competing smartphones, but which would be essential for the proper functioning of facial recognition. called Face ID in stores, it is currently considered one of the most efficient on the market.
