Screen Brightness Test: iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro [Video]

Check out this test comparing the screen brightness of the iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro.

We performed the test in four different ways:
1. SDR, True Tone Off, Auto Brightness Off
2. SDR, True Tone Off, Auto Brightness On
3. HDR, True Tone Off, Auto Brightness Off
4. HDR, True Tone Off, Auto Brightness On

In past videos, we measured peak brightness across all areas of the iPhone's display. This results in slightly higher measurements as some areas of the screen are brighter than others. However, the iPhone will not reach peak brightness with its entire display white. So in this updated test, we are using a centered white dot just large enough to cover our meter.

Interestingly, the iPhone 13 Pro performed slightly better than the iPhone 14 Pro when it came to the SDR test. With Auto Brightness OFF it reached a peak of 917 nits (cd/m2) compared to 877 nits for the iPhone 14 Pro. Unfortunately, to get brighter than that, you'll need to turn Auto Brightness ON. This can be irritating as the display will keep adjusting brightness as the light changes; however, it does result in a massive increase in maximum brightness. With Auto Brightness ON, the iPhone 14 Pro reaches an impressive 2393 nits vs 1149 nits for the iPhone 13 Pro.

Moving to the HDR test, we measured a peak brightness of 1668 nits for the iPhone 14 Pro and 1320 nits for the iPhone 13 Pro with Auto Brightness OFF. However, with Auto Brightness ON the iPhone 14 Pro produced 2370 nits compared to 1318 nits for the iPhone 13 Pro which didn't get the extra boost.

For reference, Apple says the iPhone 14 Pro delivers 1000 nits max brightness (typical); 1600 nits peak brightness (HDR); 2000 nits peak brightness (outdoor). The iPhone 13 Pro is said to offer 1000 nits max brightness (typical); 1200 nits max brightness (HDR).
