iPhone 14 Pro A16 Bionic performance
The chip will apparently also be more energy efficient and the phones will feature a better heat management system.
iPhone 14 Pro Always-On display
Code snippets had previously indicated the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max would have an always-on display, which was in line with reports. It will apparently be easier for Apple to incorporate the feature this year because the phones will have a more advanced LTPO panel which will be capable of dialing down the refresh rate to 1Hz.
A preview of the rumored iPhone 14 Pro ‘Always on Display’ feature might have been leaked by Xcode 14 beta 4 Simulator. Attached are the first two frames of a video of waking the sim.

Wood has backed up this leak too and has added that the always-on mode feature will not be enabled by default but users will be able to enable it by going to Display & Brightness settings.
iPhone 14 design
Wood has shot down rumors that had said the iPhone 14 Pro might be made out of titanium alloy and says it will stick with stainless steel.
He also asserts that the iPhone 14 Pro will support maximum charging speeds of 30W, but it will drop down to 27-25W after the first phase of the charging cycle.
The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will apparently be available in the colors Green, Purple, Blue, Black, White, and Red, and the Pros will come in Green, Purple, Silver, Gold, and Graphite. Basically, iPhone 14’s Pink hue will be replaced with a Purple colorway, whereas the Pro’s Sierra Blue will be retired for a Purple shade.
Apple will presumably reveal the iPhone 14 family next month alongside new watch models.
