iPhone 14 Pro’s 48MP ProRAW Photos Take Up More Than 80MB Of Space
Apple announced its new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max earlier this week, confirming that they are both capable of taking 48-megapixel ProRAW photos with their improved cameras.
While the cameras will normally downsample those 48-megapixel images to standard 12-megapixel ones, using the ProRAW image format will generate a full 48-megapixel image. And those images will be big.
As shown during a brief hands-on video by Sarah Dietschy, a photo taken with an iPhone 14 Pro’s main camera took up 80.4MB of space on the device’s internal storage, suggesting that those who shoot in ProRAW a lot might need to choose something other than the base 128GB configuration.
However, it’s important to remember that this only applies to shooting in the ProRAW format. Anyone creating standard photos using an iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 Pro Max will see images remain at the same size as the current iPhone 13 models.
The ProRAW format is one designed for photographers who want to capture as much information as possible at the point of taking a photo. They can then edit the image in more ways than they would have been able to if they had taken the photo in another format, like JPG.
Apple’s new iPhones are all available for pre-order today and will go on sale next Friday, September 16.
