The iPhone 14 series launched globally at Apple’s “Far Out” event on Wednesday. After being hinted at in numerous leaks and rumors over the past few months, Apple’s latest line of smartphones includes four models – the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are smaller models, the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max are aimed at those who prefer larger screens. This is the first line of iPhone Pro phones since the iPhone X to have a front-facing redesign. The famous notch has been replaced by a pill-shaped hole-punch cutout that now houses the front-facing camera and advanced Face ID technology.
Also, while the non-Pro model comes with last year’s Apple A15 Bionic SoC, the Pro model comes with the latest Apple Bionic A16 SoC. The latest smartphones in the US come with E-sim activation without Wi-Fi. For the first time, iPhone models in the US do not have a SIM card tray. The smartphone is also equipped with satellite emergency communication technology, which can be used to send emergency distress signals via satellite. The feature will start in the U.S. and Canada and will be free for two years on the iPhone 14. All phones also have crash detection.

The phone features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, which is said to be better in terms of brightness and color reproduction than last year’s phone. They are said to offer 1200 nits of peak brightness and support Dolby Vision.
Under the hood, the iPhone 14 gets last year’s Apple-proprietary A15 Bionic SoC that powered last year’s iPhone 13 lineup. Apple continues to offer its advanced Face ID technology as the only biometric security option for unlocking your phone.
Apple doesn’t officially disclose the amount of RAM and battery capacity for each model, however, third-party teardowns in the coming weeks should provide a clearer picture of this information. Apple says the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be able to offer more runtime than last year’s iPhone models.
As far as cameras go, the iPhone 14 features a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera that combines a 1.9-micron sensor with an f/1.7 aperture lens. Apple also highlighted some camera tricks on the phone’s sleeve, including improved video recording with a new stabilization feature called Motion Mode. This mode uses the phone’s motion sensor to better correct the video. Apple also touts better low-light performance thanks to the new Photon Engine.
iPhone 14 Plus Specifications
The iPhone 14 Plus has similar hardware to the iPhone 14, except for the larger screen size and backup battery. The phone features a 6.7-inch OLED display, and Apple claims the iPhone 14 Plus is claimed to have the longest battery life in an iPhone. Under the hood is the A15 Bionic SoC powering the vanilla iPhone 14, and the camera setup is the same for both models.
iPhone 14 Pro Specifications
For the Pro models, Apple uses surgical-grade stainless steel that is said to be abrasion and corrosion resistant. The iPhone 14 Pro features a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR Always-On OLED display with Apple’s ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate feature. The Pro model can scale from 10Hz to 120Hz and adjust its refresh rate to provide a combination of smoother motion and an energy-efficient system.
As mentioned, the main difference shown is the introduction of a pill-shaped hole-punch cutout in place of the famous trend-setting notch. Apple calls it Dynamic Island, and it’s an “interactive space” that expands notifications and other information like a music player, call interface, maps, and more. Apple says the feature is available for third-party apps.
Under the hood is Apple’s new in-house A16 Bionic SoC, which is touted as the most powerful chip in the iPhone. For photos and videos, Apple is one step ahead in updating the camera hardware on the Pro models. There’s a new 48-megapixel main camera.
iPhone 14 Pro Max Specifications
Featuring nearly the same hardware as the iPhone 14 Pro, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is an option for those who prefer a larger display. This top-of-the-line phone features a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with the same Apple ProMotion 120Hz refresh rate capabilities.
