iPhone 14 Pro screen becomes twice as bright when outdoors in sunlight

Have you ever been outside and found yourself unable to use your iPhone because it is too dim in the bright sun? For those upgrading to Apple’s latest high-end models, the iPhone 14 Pro and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max can get significantly brighter when used outdoors in sunlight, thanks to more advanced displays.

The iPhone 14 Pro‌ and ‌iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max feature Super Retina XDR displays that Apple calls the “most advanced displays in any smartphone.” The new displays have a peak brightness of 2,000 nits when used outdoors in sunlight, twice the peak brightness of previous models.

When viewing HDR photos, videos and movies, the new screens can reach a peak brightness of 1600 nits, higher than older iPhones. With a brightness of 1600 nits, the iPhone 14 Pro‌ and iPhone 14 Pro‌ Max now deliver the same level of brightness as the high-end $4,999 Pro Display XDR when viewing HDR content, according to Apple.

Apple can deliver this higher brightness thanks to a more advanced OLED panel and a new Display Engine in the A16 Bionic chip that enables features like Dynamic Island, always-on, and the 120Hz variable refresh rate.
