hi all, I have an 11 pro at the moment, and know it has a 12 Mp camera, when using say, voice o.c.r or seeing a.i. plus Aira, but with the 14 pro I know it has a 12 mp, with a 48 mp sensor. Surely one would expect outstanding results with a 48 mp setup, but I hear and read that it only uses the 12 mp camera and only implements + thdh mp camera for taking photos with the camera, when the raw mode is active, so I may as well just go with a 13 mini? The door detection and scene description? yes, it would be nice on 13 pro or 14 pro when out and cb, but I can't, say, train voiceover to recognize say, my colleagues when say, I enter a room at work to say Peter is to the right on a chair with a computer and i'd have to use yet another app for this? so, I guess the 13 mini my best option?

low light conditions
What I'm wondering is if the 14 Pro cameras would do a better job of OCR when we, you know, forget to turn the lights on in a room or go near a window. :)
48 MP Thoughts
It's all in the software. A few lines of code from our favourite app developers and we should have access to killer-app-level OCR, even for handwritten text in various light conditions. the trick here is to take the 48 megapixels and process them using the neural engine and software AI so we can read handwritten notes passed to us in class.
I'm still driving an iPhone 7 (you can laugh now), but will likely be upgrading to the 14 Pro.
14 Pro has better camera
The OCR app won't receive 48 MP, but that is completely irrelevant as OCR of something like a book page can't get better at 48 MP, even 12 MP is too much.
However you will get much higher quality of pixels and that does matter. The lenses of the camera are notably bigger so they will capture much more light. The sensor is physically bigger so it will capture more light to on top of that. Finally having 48 MP helps as each pixel is calculated based on 4 pixels and as such it is more accurate. More capable AI will further improve results.
This is even more notable in the low-light conditions that you have asked for in the comment.
RE: 14 Pro has better camera
I wholeheartedly agree with this. As a blind person, we need the absolute best camera, because no matter how we are trying to apply it, specifically for our situation, the best camera possible is always going to result in the best possible outcomes. In my book, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 pro max is the way to go, and not just because of the camera. Remember, this is the only two models that have the newest A16 chip, and Bluetooth 5.3. The other two new phones this year do not have either one of these.
