The small but mighty iPhone 14 brings moderate upgrades, so is this Apple upgrade worth considering?
To Apple users, the iPhone 14 is seen as an iPhone 13s because the screen, design and processor in both iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 are one and the same.
But, as ever with the iPhone, it’s all about familiarity; it doesn’t shake the tree too hard, delivers on what’s tried, tested and is frankly loved by millions of people.
The iPhone 14 is a carbon copy of iPhone 13. Same size, weight and features the same 6.1-inch display with a notch top and centre.
But, the iPhone display looks great! There’s something natural about the images on it’s super retina XDR OLED panel.
Plus, there’s Dolby Vision HD that enables the display to boost it’s max brightness, to an almost TV-beating 1200 nits.
The absence of features such as always-on and ProMotion all benefit the longevity per charge with a 3279mAh, the iPhone 14 battery lasts longer.
While Apple has boosted the cameras in all iPhone 14 models, the entry model doesn’t get a giant boost in this department.
It has two rear cameras, both of which are 12-megapixel in resolution. Both have new sensors compared to the earlier iPhone 13, while the main sensor gets a slightly wider aperture.
When it comes to video it can shoot up to 4k video, including the cinematic mode which also supports 30 frames per second at that resolution.
You might think of the iPhone 14 as the honorary iPhone 13s as the upgrades over its predecessor aren’t major by any means.
That said, with shiny new iOS 16 software, a reliable and familiar build puts everything in place from cameras to battery life which is mighty attractive.
