Apple iPhone 14 ‘Pro’ and ‘non-Pro’ models may have the biggest differences in 2022


Since the iPhone 11 series, Apple has offered “Pro” and “non-Pro” models of its flagship smartphones. The camera, screen size, and battery life are the three most notable differences between these two models. However, it appears that with the upcoming iPhone 14 series, Apple will also introduce a major connectivity difference among the smartphones. According to iDropNews, a source has confirmed that the “Pro” models in the iPhone 14 lineup will have a USB 3.0 Lightning connector.

The USB 3.0 Lightning port was introduced with the first iPad Pro by Apple in 2015. In spite of this, the technology was not included in iPhones. It is currently only possible to transfer data at 480 Mbps using the USB 2.0 technology in Apple iPhone models. As a point of reference, the USB 3.0 Lightning port is capable of 5Gbps transfer rates.

A total of four iPhone 14-series handsets are expected to be unveiled by Apple this year: the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. As long as the rumours are true, the speed of data transfer on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will increase.

An earlier report by the publication revealed that, in conjunction with the launch of new flagship smartphones, the tech giant may also decide to discontinue the iPhone 11 series due to the device’s ageing design. According to the report, the move may also be necessary because the iPhone 11 is displacing sales of the newly launched iPhone SE 2022, also known as the iPhone SE 3, which was previously available. According to the report, the iPhone 12 series will also receive a price reduction in conjunction with the launch of the new iPhones, and will most likely be priced at the same level as the iPhone 11 is currently priced.
