What iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 pro max can do?
Both the front and rear cameras on the iPhone 14 received some upgrades. On the front, the selfie camera is an all-new 12MP camera that features autofocus. Apple says the new camera delivers up to 2x better low-light photos thanks to its larger aperture.
10 Settings to Check Out on iPhone 14 Pro
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have started to arrive to customers around the world. For those who have upgraded to one of the devices, we have put together a list of 10 useful settings that are worth checking out below. Some of the settings are exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models, while others were introduced in iOS 16 for a wider range of iPhones.
iPhone 14 Pro models feature an upgraded rear camera system that can shoot 48-megapixel photos, but only in ProRAW mode, which can be enabled in the Settings app under Camera → Formats → Apple ProRAW with the resolution set to 48MP. In the Camera app, a button labeled RAW will appear in the top-right corner to easily turn ProRAW on or off.
ProRAW photos retain more detail in the image file for more editing flexibility. 48-megapixel ProRAW photos are very large files that clock in at around 75MB each or higher, so be mindful of your iPhone’s storage space if shooting photos in this mode.
Enable 4K Cinematic Mode
On all four iPhone 14 models, Cinematic mode videos can now be recorded in 4K. To enable the higher resolution in the Settings app, tap Camera → Record Cinematic and choose 4K at 24 frames per second or 4K at 30 frames per second.
Introduced with the iPhone 13 lineup, Cinematic mode features a depth effect with automatic focus changes for “cinema-style” videos.
Optimize Action Mode for Lower Light
All four iPhone 14 models feature a new Action mode that adjusts to significant shakes, motion, and vibrations for smoother-looking video. Apple says the feature can be used to record video while off-roading in a vehicle, filming a runner, and more.
A button for Action mode can be found in the top-left corner of the Camera app for video. In the Settings app, Action mode can be optimized for lower-light conditions by navigating to Camera → Record Video → Action Mode Lower Light.
Turn On a Startup Sound
Turn Off the Always-On Display
iPhone 14 Pro’s new always-on display mode is enabled by default. It can be turned off in the Settings app under Display & Brightness → Always On.
Always-on display mode dims the entire Lock Screen, but still shows the time, date, widgets, wallpaper, and unread notifications. Once you raise the iPhone, tap or swipe up on the bottom of the screen, or press the side button, the display returns to normal brightness.
