Apple's iPhone 14 Pro/Max display will be 2,000 nits brighter in outdoor sunlight

Have you ever been able to use your Apple iPhone outdoors because it's too dark in the dazzling sunlight? For those upgrading to Apple's latest high-end models, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max can get brighter when used outdoors in sunlight, thanks to more advanced displays.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max feature a Super Retina XDR display, which Apple calls "the most advanced display of any smartphone." When used outdoors in sunlight, the new display has a peak brightness of 2,000 nits, double the peak brightness of the previous model.

When watching HDR photos, videos, and movies, the new display can reach 1600 nits of peak brightness, higher than the old iPhone. With 1,600 nits of brightness, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max can now deliver the same brightness levels as the high-end $4,999 Pro Display XDR when viewing HDR content, according to Apple.

Apple is able to deliver these higher brightnesses thanks to a more advanced OLED panel and a new display engine in the A16 Bionic chip, which supports features like Smart Island, AOD Always On Display, and a 120Hz variable refresh rate.

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max show less change in display resolution compared to their respective predecessors. For example, the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a resolution of 2,796 x 1,290, while the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a resolution of 2,778 x 1,284. The iPhone 14 Pro has a slightly higher resolution at 2,556 x 1,179, while the iPhone 13 Pro has a resolution of 2,532 x 1,170.

According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are made of exquisite surgical-grade stainless steel and matte glass with excellent texture, and a total of 4 stunning colors are available. Available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes, both models feature a new Super Retina XDR display that supports ProMotion technology, enabling an all-weather display for the first time on an iPhone with a new 1Hz refresh rate and multiple energy-saving technologies. This makes the new lock screen even more useful, with the time, widgets, and real-time activity always visible at a glance. This advanced display also delivers the same HDR peak brightness as the Pro Display XDR display, and the highest outdoor peak brightness ever seen in an iPhone: up to 2,000 nits, twice that of the iPhone 13 Pro.
