10 Settings to Check Out on Your New iPhone 14 Pro

Apple's latest iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models launched in September. For those who have upgraded to one of these higher-end devices, we have put together a list of 10 useful settings that are worth checking out below.

Some of the settings are exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro models, while others were introduced in iOS 16 for a wider range of iPhones.

New Settings for iPhone 14 Pro Models

Enable 48MP ProRAW Photos

iPhone 14 Pro Settings ProRAW
iPhone 14 Pro models feature an upgraded rear camera system that can shoot 48-megapixel photos, but only in ProRAW mode, which can be enabled in the Settings app under Camera → Formats → Apple ProRAW with the resolution set to 48MP. In the Camera app, a button labeled RAW will appear in the top-right corner to easily turn ProRAW on or off.

ProRAW photos retain more detail in the image file for more editing flexibility. 48-megapixel ProRAW photos are very large files that clock in at around 75MB each or higher, so be mindful of your iPhone's storage space if shooting photos in this mode.

Enable 4K Cinematic Mode

iPhone 14 Pro Settings 4K Cinematic Mode
On all four iPhone 14 models, Cinematic mode videos can now be recorded in 4K. To enable the higher resolution in the Settings app, tap Camera → Record Cinematic and choose 4K at 24 frames per second or 4K at 30 frames per second.

Introduced with the iPhone 13 lineup, Cinematic mode features a depth effect with automatic focus changes for "cinema-style" videos.

Optimize Action Mode for Lower Light

iPhone 14 Pro Settings Action Mode Lower Light
All four iPhone 14 models feature a new Action mode that adjusts to significant shakes, motion, and vibrations for smoother-looking video. Apple says the feature can be used to record video while off-roading in a vehicle, filming a runner, and more.

A button for Action mode can be found in the top-left corner of the Camera app for video. In the Settings app, Action mode can be optimized for lower-light conditions by navigating to Camera → Record Video → Action Mode Lower Light.

Turn On a Startup Sound


An optional new accessibility feature allows all iPhone 14 models to play a sound when powered on and powered off. The feature can be enabled in the Settings app under Accessibility → Audio/Visual → Power On & Off Sounds.

Turn Off the Always-On Display

iPhone 14 Pro's new always-on display mode is enabled by default. It can be turned off in the Settings app under Display & Brightness → Always On.

Always-on display mode dims the entire Lock Screen, but still shows the time, date, widgets, wallpaper, and unread notifications. Once you raise the iPhone, tap or swipe up on the bottom of the screen, or press the side button, the display returns to normal brightness.

Starting with iOS 16.2, which remains in beta, there are options to turn off the wallpaper and notifications for the always-on display.

New Settings in iOS 16

Turn On Haptic Feedback for Keyboard

iPhone 14 Pro Settings Haptic Keyboard
iOS 16 added a new haptic feedback option for the iPhone's stock keyboard. Similar to many Android smartphones, the iPhone can make a slight vibration after each key that you press while typing, providing physical confirmation that the key was tapped.

In the Settings app, the feature is under Sounds & Haptics → Keyboard Feedback → Haptic.

Add a Battery Percentage Icon to Status Bar

iPhone 14 Pro Settings Battery Icon
iOS 16 finally reintroduced the option to view a battery percentage icon in the status bar on the iPhone X and newer, eliminating the need to swipe down to open Control Center to see the percentage. To enable the new icon on iPhone 14 Pro models, open the Settings app and navigate to Battery → Battery Percentage.

Automatically Send Messages With Siri

iPhone 14 Pro Settings Automatic Siri Messages
Siri normally asks for confirmation before sending a message to someone, but in iOS 16, there is a new option to skip the confirmation step. To enable this in the Settings app, tap Siri & Search → Automatically Send Messages.

The feature can also be enabled when an iPhone is connected to headphones or CarPlay.

Ask Siri to Hang Up a Phone Call

iPhone 14 Pro Siri Call Hang Up
With iOS 16, you can say "Hey Siri, hang up" during a phone call to end the call in a hands-free manner, but note that the command can be heard by others on the call. In the Settings app, this feature can be enabled under Siri & Search → Call Hang Up.

View Wi-Fi Passwords

iPhone 14 Pro Settings Wi Fi Password
You can finally view the password of a Wi-Fi network that you have previously connected to on iOS 16. In the Settings app, tap Wi-Fi → tap a network → tap the password field and authenticate with Face ID to view the password.

Before you buy your iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max, make sure you understand this deal breaker setting for the Pro model.
If I knew this I would've not purchased the iPhone 14 Pro.

Can you be more explicit? Don’t understand the purpose of your screen shots….

Not only do the 48 mega pixels ONLY work in Raw but they also ONLY work on ONE of the lenses.
Utterly lame.
Instead of giving us 48 mpx on all lenses and in JPEG....nope...Apple did it this way.
What a sorry bunch.
Wealthiest company in the world....

Would be nice to have the option for the camera save a regular auto processed 48 MP image as well. So you would have the choice of the regular 12 MP image, 48 MP and 48 MP ProRAW.
You are missing what apple is doing.

They are using 4 pixels to simulate a single pixel and use a bunch of computational math on them to eliminate noise and make the camera perform better than the hardware itself would allow.

You are basically asking for a mode to “make the camera worse” because you’d be turning off a lot of the algorithms that make the photos look the way they do.

No way Apple gives you a button to make the camera look worse.

The deal with RAW photos is there is the expectation that they’ll be processed in post, with a human being making decisions about to deal with noise and other settings on a manual case by case basis.

Giving full data to manipulate in post or algorithm-enhanced photos are both good options. A “middle” option would only serve to be the worst of both worlds.

Yeah, can you imagine the ego blow from hearing someone tell their digital assistant to hang up on you?

I would only use this in the case of being on hold for a long time “due to unusually high call volume”.
