iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro: Is it worth upgrading?

iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro:  We compared two devices two years apart: the iPhone 12 Pro against the iPhone 14 Pro.

Apple will launch its new iPhone 14 next September and we decided to step forward a bit and compare the upcoming models with the previous iPhones. In this case, we will be pitting the iPhone 12 Pro against the iPhone 14 Proof which practically we already know all its official specifications.

For this reason, we have decided to compare iPhone 14 Pro to the iPhone 12 Pro, models separated two years in time to see if it’s worth it or not to switch from one to the other. As happened in our comparison between the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro, although here things are more equal.

We compare the iPhone 12 Pro with the iPhone 14 Pro

iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro: These are the New Features and the Main Changes

Although there are big differences inside, these are two devices that look very similar. Although it is true that the removal of the notch will continue to attract many users.

Display improvements

On the screen is where we found a lot of news since we must also add some improvements made with the iPhone 13 Pro:

  • Promotion: Introduced in the iPhone 13 Pro, it enables a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz for smoother scrolling. It is expected that in the iPhone 14 Pro we will have an improvement in this direction.
  • screen always on- Rumors suggest the iPhone 14 Pro will feature an always-on display mode that shows the time, date, and new iOS 16 lock screen widgets.
  • without notch: the end of the notch starts in the iPhone 14 Pro, which will have a double hole on the screen.

The general design of the iPhone 14 Pro will be similar to the current ones

Processor Difference

The new iPhone 14 Pro comes with an A16 Bionic chip, while iPhone 12 Pro comes with A14 Bionic. A major upgrade is to be expected, this is a two-year newer processor, but we don’t expect to notice a big change in performance. Apple processors are extremely powerful and hold up well over time.

Battery Life Improvements

The battery has increased significantly over the past generations of iPhones and we expect the iPhone 14 Pro to be a slight improvement on the iPhone 13 Pro, so we will have 2 or 3 hours of autonomy more than in the iPhone 12 Pro. Rumors suggest that the iPhone 14 could have even higher battery capacities.

Camera Improvements

One of the big improvements of the iPhone 14 Pro will be located in the rear area, in the camera module. After many years of opting for 12-megapixels, Apple is expected to include a 48-megapixel camera with support for 8K video recording on its iPhone 14 Pro.

This is what the iPhone 14 Pro, and its huge camera module, would look like in purple

In addition, they are also expecting big selfie camera changes with an improved front sensor with autofocus. In addition, Apple could surprise us with new photographic modes for photos and videos.


Apple has kept the prices of its best iPhones constant for several years. Starting with the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, we have prices set at $999 or €1,159 for the small model and $1,099 or €1,259 for the Max models. But that is changing this year.

one is expected increase of 100 dollars in the iPhone 14 Pro so the range would look like this:

  • Apple iPhone 14 Pro: $1,099 / €1,259
  • Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max: $1,199 / €1,359

In the month of September we will see if this comparison is fulfilled although given the number of rumors that are coming, and which in previous cases have not failed, these will be the main differences between these two models.
