Gurman then touched on the rear-camera system of the iPhone 14 Pro saying “there’s also a significantly larger camera area on the back of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max for the new 48-megapixel wide-angle system and improved telephoto and ultrawide-angle sensors.” He also expects improvements to low light photography and video recording.
