Presented a week ago, the new models in the pro range feature an all-new 48-megapixel camera. Enough to take pretty shots with a relatively substantial weight…
Apple has decided to equip its new iPhones with a new 48-megapixel photo unit equipped with a quad-pixel sensor. This sensor combines each group of 4 pixels into a larger 2.44µm quad-pixel. Concretely, this will offer high quality images even in low light conditions, but it will also have an impact on storage.
A new expensive photo block
In addition to the consequent price of these new models, the photos will also take up a lot of space. According Steve Moserphotos taken with the 48-megapixel sensor will be up to three times larger than photos taken with a 12-megapixel camera.
For comparison, photos taken with an iPhone 13 Pro occupy 25 MB in ProRAW format. Photos captured with the 48 megapixel camera of the iPhone 14 Pro can be around 75 MB.
As a reminder, the ProRaw format is an Apple proprietary format which offers more options to the user who can adjust exposure, color or white balance for example.
The 128 Gb model insufficient?
The increase in the weight of photos taken with the new iPhones will also have a consequence in terms of the choice of model. Indeed, given the information at our disposal, the 128 Gb model would not be sufficient to accommodate all your photos in ProRaw mode. Therefore, the simplest option, but also the most expensive, is to opt for the version with 256 GB.
L’iPhone 14 Pro is offered at 1329 € in its 128 GB version while the iPhone 14 Pro is displayed at 1459 €.
