Be prepared for your photos to use up a sizable amount of data if you intend to utilize the 48-megapixel main camera sensor on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max to its full potential.
According to a report by Steve Moser, 48-megapixel ProRAW photographs recorded on the main camera will be roughly 75MB in size, three times larger than photos taken with the 12-megapixel sensor on an iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro, according to code unearthed by Steve Moser within the iOS 16 release candidate released this week. Following the “Far Out” presentation by Apple, YouTuber Sara Dietschy posted a quick hands-on video in which she demonstrated how to shoot a 48MP photo, which is 80.4MB in size and has a resolution of 8,064 by 6,048 pixels, in the Photos app.
Although sensible, users should take into account the larger storage requirements of 48-megapixel ProRAW photos when deciding how much storage they want on their iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max. Storage options for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have a new quad-pixel sensor that can merge four pixels into one to deliver sharper and brighter 12-megapixel shots. The new 48-megapixel sensor can capture ProRAW photos in sharp and crisp detail and comes with a “new machine learning model [that] delivers sharper images and less noise for unprecedented detail.”
Pre-orders for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will open on Friday, September 9, and deliveries to consumers will start on Friday, September 16.
