The iPhone 14: Everything you need to know about the new Apple mobile



A few days ago, Apple announced the official launch of the iPhone 14 and thus cleared up a lot of doubts and rumors that had been created about this device in recent months. It should be noted that many predictions have been fulfilled and there are also unexpected surprises.

For the same reason, in this article, we explain all the details of the premiere of the apple giant. We review all the technical details of the iPhone 14 and make a comparison with the previous model, to see how convenient it is.

The new iPhone 14 has arrived

With the arrival of the iPhone 14, one of the first things that have impacted, and that coincides with the predictions made by experts, is the disappearance of the notch in Apple terminals. However, we can only see this change in the Pro and Pro Max models. Entry models still retain this feature.

In the more expensive iPhone models, the notch has been replaced by an elongated notch that is practically the same size as the old notch. The only difference is that there is no longer a line between the frame of the phone and the area where the front camera is located. Which gives the screen a much larger and uncluttered appearance.

The second important thing to note with the arrival of the iPhone 14: Apple has stopped making mini models.

It must be remembered that the arrival of these models at the time was considered nonsense. This, considering that they contributed little to the experience of using the screen and where, in addition, the power of a terminal that has always stood out for its processor and the image quality of its panels was wasted.

Well, Apple paid attention to user complaints and has abandoned the manufacture of mini models. In its replacement, it adds two input models that replicate the characteristics of the extinct iPhone Mini, but this time with a visibly larger screen.

In this way, the model configuration at Apple's premiere includes four terminals. On the one hand, we have the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, as the cheapest entry models. While the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max appear as the most expensive models that include the most improvements.

Analysis of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

Apple's new input models are the ones that have had the fewest changes compared to the terminals of the last generation. However, it is worth taking a look at its characteristics, to then give way to the older brothers.

To begin with, it is important to clarify that both models share the same functions. So much so that Apple's website presents them together, highlighting the only difference they have and that is the size of the screen. While the iPhone 14 has a 6.1-inch panel, the Plus version has a 6.7-inch panel.


Apple's two input models retain the aesthetics of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. That is completely flat frames, aluminum finishes, and a glass back. The front notch remains where it is and the layout of the rear cameras appears in a square module with the sensors arranged diagonally.

The appearance of the device maintains an elegant and sophisticated aesthetic. For the same reason, although the model is repeated with respect to the previous generation, it is appreciated that Apple retains an interest in taking care of the design details. Something that has always been a plus for most users who prefer the brand.

Both models are IP68 certified. Something that makes them resistant to water and dust.


Apple excitedly announces the 21% screen increase over previous models and highlights the technology packed into the panels and that in this case is Super Retina XDR.

With this, it leaves behind the attempt carried out with the iPhone 13 Mini, which was a point of contention for users who did not finish seeing this device as something coherent in the Apple catalog. In this way, it adds two phones with a generous screen that can take much better advantage of the power of the processor and the virtues of the OLED panel.

Both iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus offer high resolution and color accuracy. Which makes everything on the screen look sharp and perfectly recognizable, with an exceptional multitasking and gaming experience.

On the other hand, True Tone technology can calibrate the screen to adapt according to the amount of ambient light. This system seeks to protect the eyes from excessive brightness when it is not necessary for low-light environments.


Both the iPhone 14 and the Plus versions include an A15 Bionic chip with a 5-core GPU. The same that we find in the iPhone 13 Pro. This implies that we have guaranteed fluidity and speed in all processes. Something that we can confirm with the use of multitasking and games, where there are no performance problems or unforeseen jams.

This is not new, considering that when the iPhone 13 Pro was launched we were able to verify the efficiency and power of the chip. With high performance and is ideal for playing titles with a huge graphic load. In addition, the processor is compatible with augmented reality applications, where the performance is truly exceptional.

Apple highlights that the processor has a new design, which although it does not alter its power, does improve thermal efficiency to prevent the terminal from heating up after long days of gaming or multitasking.

Along with the A15 Bionic chip we have another processor called Secure Enclave. Dedicated exclusively to the protection of the terminal. Its function is to offer an additional security layer to manage and administer the system's private keys. Its peculiarity is that it has a micro-kernel that does not require its connection with the operating system.

What does this mean? Well, the phone has a private processing space that cannot be accessed from the operating system. Something that minimizes the dangers that could occur as a result of the use of malicious applications or any other attempt to attack the phone.

In this case, the Secure Enclave can store passwords as well as biometric data. What guarantees privacy for the confidential information of the most demanding users.


The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have few changes from their predecessors. However, they have some new things. Like a new main camera with improved image processing. Something that reinforces, above all, captures in low light

Apple indicates that the new input terminals have main sensors with 2.5 times better performance compared to previous models. This is if we use the main camera. Regarding the ultra-wide angle, the company points out that we can take photos up to twice better in a low-light environment.

For video recording, we have Cinema Mode that can change the focus automatically to detect the protagonist of the scene. To enhance this, we have the possibility of making the video in 4K and at 2f/s.

On the other hand, as the new TrueDepth front camera offers autofocus and a larger aperture, close-ups and selfies take on much more detail. You also gain color perception.

Notably, the TrueDepth system and the A15 Bionic chip work together to make Face ID one of the most secure authentication systems on a smartphone.

Operating system and other details

The new cheap Apple phones come with the iOS 16 operating system. For this reason, they bring some important changes regarding the interface.

The first improvement has to do with the lock screen. Now with iOS 16, more customization options appear. We can add favorite photos, change fonts and add widgets to access relevant information at a glance.

Another interesting thing is the possibility of creating several lock screens, each one with its own background and particular style. Best of all, you can switch from one to the other with a single flick of the finger. Something that improves the user experience regarding the personalization of the device.

In the notifications section, there are more options to organize them. We can group them in the form of a list and make them appear at the bottom of the screen. If we don't want distractions, we can hide them.

On the other hand, one of the most well-received features of iOS 16 is the new focus modes. Here Apple offers many more options to select what we want to work on while we are working or doing something else that requires our maximum attention.

Analysis of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

Apple's high-end models are the ones that include the most changes compared to the previous generation.

In both the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max the notch disappears. That huge notch that many Apple users did not quite convince. This is replaced by a slightly more discreet hole that offers a cleaner screen appearance.

A system is added that makes the lock screen appear at all times visible. This, is to be aware of notifications at a glance and without the need to touch the screen to unlock. If we want to deactivate this mode, we just have to put the phone upside down or put it in our pocket so that the screen turns off.

To cope with the energy consumption of having a lock screen always on, Apple adds much more autonomy to the battery, which guarantees a full day without frights and without the need to recharge the device. 23 hours of video on the iPhone 14 Pro and 29 hours on the Pro Max model.

The screen of Apple's high-end terminals is Super Retina XDR and can reach a peak of 2,000 nits even in bright sunlight. In this way, the brightness is doubled compared to previous models and becomes the highest peak of smartphones on the market. All this enhances the colors and contrast of a panel that is tremendously attractive for gamers and users who consume multimedia content.

There are also improvements with HDR

HDR photos and videos get up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness. Which is comparable to the image quality that we can obtain with the Pro Display XDR monitor.

Camera system

Both iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max have important changes in the cameras section. A new 48-megapixel main camera with an Advanced Quad Pixel sensor is added. This allows for up to four times the resolution in ProRaw. Which improves the framing system and offers incredibly sharp images.

Apple points out that the new camera sensor is 65% larger than the one we can find in the iPhone 13 Pro. It also incorporates a telephoto lens with two magnifications of optical quality to give more play to the frame.

As reported by the manufacturer, with the new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max we can get up to 3 times better photos in low light conditions, using the ultra-wide angle. We also get up to two times better photos in low light and using the main camera. The same improvement we get with the telephoto lens.

As if that were not enough, Apple explains the process by which they have decided to make the sensors larger. First, to capture more light and improve the quality of the photos. Second, to incorporate a system called a Photonic Engine, which intervenes in the processing of images to combine pixels and offer maximum performance when capturing.

Record movies in cinema mode

In addition to enhancing the camera system, the iPhone 14 Pro allows you to record in 4k at 24 frames per second. Something that guarantees excellent image quality where, in addition, we can adjust the depth effect. All this is to offer an optimal result with a professional-level video.

To boost video recording, we have the Action Mode that allows you to achieve stable shots, without the need to use a stabilizer.

And the processor?

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max incorporate the A16 Bionic chip. The most advanced to date, in the field of smartphones.

With almost 16,000 million transistors, this processor offers a heart attack speed. The CPU is 6 cores (one more core compared to the A15 Bionic). Thus guaranteeing the perfect fluidity of the interface and turning the terminal into the dream of every online player.

Apple adds Neural Engine technology that allows up to 17 billion operations per second. Something that reinforces the machine learning system applied to the photo section and, in general, to the rest of the phone's processes.

Operating system and other details

The most expensive iPhone models have the same operating system as their younger siblings: iOS 16. For this reason, the same novelties indicated in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus section are repeated.

Something notable and worth mentioning is the improvement in the accident detection system. The function that, in addition, is present in all the models released by Apple.

As a new g-force accelerometer has been added, the phones can detect extreme accelerations or decelerations up to 256g. The barometer detects pressure changes that occur when airbags deploy, and the high dynamic range gyroscope records sudden changes in a car's orientation.

In this way, when the phone triangulates the information and detects that something is wrong, it can automatically send a message to the emergency services. You can also contact trusted people that we have previously added in the trusted contacts section.

Price of all iPhone 14 models

The iPhone 14 reaches 1,009 euros for the 128 GB version and can reach 1,400 euros for the model with 512 GB of internal storage. While the Plus version starts at 1,159 euros and can cost up to 1,546 euros.

But if we talk about the iPhone 14 Pro, the thing is set at 1,300 euros for the 128 GB version and almost 2,000 for the terminal with 1 TB of internal storage. From then on, the price shoots up a little more with the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which starts at almost 1,500 euros for the version with less storage, up to 2,120 euros for the model with 1 TB.
