iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus Launched with Previous A15 Bionic Chip

Along with the iPhone 14 Pro series, Apple also announced the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus during the 'Far Out' hardware launch event. And yes, the business has indeed abandoned the "small" iPhone in favor of a larger "Plus" model this year, as the speculations had suggested. Additionally, Apple explained how it will differentiate between the regular and Pro models while just giving the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus minimal enhancements. Now that that has been said, let's examine the improvements and features of the new iPhone 14 models.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus Launched

First off, it's obvious that the design of the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus is the same as it was with the iPhone 13 series.

The lower notch that was introduced last year and the rear-facing twin cameras are supported by both versions. The non-Pro iPhone 14 variants come in screen sizes of 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, which is the only distinction, as was already mentioned. There is no longer a 5.4-inch tiny version available.

The OLED panels used in these Super Retina XDR displays can handle up to 1200 nits of peak HDR brightness, a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, and Dolby Vision. Additionally, Apple's Ceramic Shield has been used to protect these displays. You receive a 12MP primary camera that has been improved and now supports sensor-shift OIS as well as a 12MP ultra-wide camera. A 12MP TrueDepth camera is also located in the notch on the front.

The non-Pro iPhone 14 versions from this year retain their original features in addition to their design. Additionally, Apple has chosen not to use its most recent A16 Bionic chipset as the engine here. According to speculations, the A15 Bionic chipset, which also powers the iPhone 13 series from last year, drives the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

Do you want to know if it makes any improvements? The iPhone 14 uses the somewhat more potent A15 Bionic chipset with a 5-core GPU seen in iPhone 13 Pro models rather than the same A15 chip as last year's non-Pro devices. As usual, Apple kept the RAM and battery capacities of the new iPhone 14 versions a secret.

On the other hand, the storage options range from 128GB for the base model to 512GB.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will be among the first devices to ship with iOS 16 installed. Additionally, they now come with updated capabilities including Satellite Emergency SOS and Crash Detection. The latter combines "unique components closely linked with software to enable antennas to connect directly to a satellite, enabling messaging with emergency services when outside of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage," according to a blog post on Apple's website. In November, users in the US and Canada will be able to access the Emergency SOS feature.

Price and Availability

Starting at $799 and $899, respectively, are the prices for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. Five colorways—midnight, blue, starlight, purple, and (PRODUCT) RED—will be offered. On September 9, pre-orders for these non-Pro versions will begin, with a few availability variations. The iPhone 14 will be on sale on September 16 and the iPhone 14 Plus on October 7.
