The screen on the iPhone 14 is 6.1 inches which is the same size as the iPhone 13. If you’re looking for a bigger screen, the iPhone 14 Pro may be the one for you as it boasts a bigger 6.7-inch screen. Both screens have an OLED display creating clear vivid images. They also come with a Ceramic Shield on the screen for extra protection against cracks and chips.

Battery Life

Apple has announced that the iPhone 14 Plus promises the best battery life ever on an iPhone. Both the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus can be charged wirelessly.

Both phones will be available in five colours: midnight, starlight, blue purple and product red.

The main camera on both phones is 12 megapixels, the same as an iPhone 13.

The front camera also has 12 megapixels.

The storage capacity on both phones is the same. You can either get 128GB, 256GB or 512GB.

New Features

Emergency SOS

Apple has released an Emergency SOS via satellite which you can use to communicate when you’re out of cellular range. This launches in November and is free to use for two years.

Crash Detection

Both phones are also being installed with crash detection. This will detect whether you are in a severe car crash, and automatically call the emergency services, provide your location and send a message to your emergency contacts. This software will only work when you’re driving.

Camera Sensor

These phones both have a bigger sensor (1.9 microns, and 49% low-light improvement). This means that when you take a picture in low light, the quality will be far better on these models of phones, than on previous versions. This new feature works for both the main camera and the front camera.

Photonic Engine

The new Photonic Engine will also help improve the quality of your low-light images. 2x improvement of the front camera, 2ximprovemenbt of the ultra-wide camera and 2.5x improvement of the main camera, so you should see significantly clearer images on these models.

Action and Stabilisation Mode

Action and stabilisation mode are both improving your videos. The stabilisation mode has been improved so your clips will be less shaky and the playback will be more smooth. Action mode enables you to capture a smooth video, even when the subject being captured is in the middle of the action.

e-Sim

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus only support e-sims. These are digital sims which you can activate at the beginning of your contract. They are being used to replace the plastic sims which we all put into our phones. e-sims make it easier to switch networks, despite being unremovable from your phone, unlike the plastic sims. You can also have up to five virtual sims at once, so you can switch between networks if you find yourself without any signal on your usual network. They are also using less plastic, reducing the effect on the environment, which we are all for here for at Matrix247!

Release Date

The iPhone 14 will be available on the 16th of September 2022, and the iPhone 14 Plus will be available from the 7th of September 2022.

How Much Will They Cost?

The iPhone 14 is priced at £849 and the iPhone 14 Plus is £949.

What We Think...

Overall, there have been slight improvements when comparing the iPhone 14 & 14 Pro to the iPhone 13 models, however, we don’t think it’s significant enough for iPhone 13 users to upgrade their models just yet. Older iPhone users or anyone looking for better camera quality will be more suitable to upgrade their current phones to the iPhone 14 & 14 Pro.

Improved Features

Dynamic Island

The most talked about feature on the iPhone 14 Pro is the ‘Dynamic Isalnd’ which is replacing the notch found at the top of many iPhones. The dynamic island changes shape depending on the notification being shown.

Display

The display on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is now brighter, at 1,600 nits, making it easier for you to see your screen in sunlight.

Always On Display 

Despite being a feature on many android phones for a long while now, iPhone has announced that the iPhone 14 Pro will now have an always-on display. This display will just be a darkened version of your lock screen, which can be customised to your liken. iOS 16 does have the ability to have interchangeable lock screens with different widgets, clocks and notifications displayed. This means every time you glance over at your phone when using this function, different information will appear each time. The always-on display can drain your battery, however, it can be handy for those who are constantly checking their phones and looking at their notifications.

Camera

The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have been fitted with a 48-megapixel camera, giving you more detailed photos. The phones are also installed with software to improve low-light images, just like the iPhone 14 & 14 Plus. There is also a new flash on the iPhone Pro & Pro Max to help improve images taken in low light. It contains 9 LEDs so will be able to brighten up those photos taken at dusk!

Battery Life

Apple has promised an all-day battery life on the iPhone 14 Pro & Pro Max. Just like many other of the latest phones on the market, the iPhone 14 Pro & Pro Max can be charged wirelessly.

What We Think...
