The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus (also stylized as iPhone 14+) are smartphones designed, developed, and marketed by Apple Inc. They are the sixteenth generation of iPhones, succeeding the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini, and was announced during Apple Event, Apple Park in Cupertino, California on September 7, 2022, alongside the higher-priced iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max flagships. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature a 6.1-inch (15 cm) and 6.7-inch (17 cm) display, improvements to the rear-facing camera, and satellite connectivity for contacting emergency services when a user in trouble is beyond the range of Wi-Fi or cellular networks.[8][9] The iPhone 14 was made available on September 16, 2022[10] and iPhone 14 Plus was made available on October 7, 2022 respectively, and was launched with iOS 16.[5][11] Pre-orders for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus began on September 9, 2022.[12]

The iPhone 14 does not have a "Mini" version like the iPhone 13 Mini from last year. Instead, Apple has reintroduced a larger dimension iPhone 14 named the iPhone 14 Plus. Apple has not introduced a Plus model iPhone since the iPhone 8 Plus in 2017. iPhone 14 and 14 Plus models (as well as iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models) sold in the United States drop support for physical SIM cards, making them the first iPhone models since the CDMA variant of the iPhone 4 to not come with a discrete SIM card reader.[13]

History

The iPhone 14 was originally rumored to come with 6.1-inch and 5.4-inch display size options. However, when the iPhone 14 was unveiled, no smaller display option was available. This may have been due to underwhelming sales of the iPhone 12 Mini and iPhone 13 Mini. Instead, a larger 6.7-inch display size option was added on the lower-priced iPhone 14 lineup.[14][15] The new 6.7-inch variant of the iPhone 14 was named "iPhone 14 Plus", rather than "iPhone 14 Max", which was predicted by previous rumors.[16][17]

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus were officially announced at Apple's "Far Out" event, along with the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE (2nd generation), Apple Watch Ultra, AirPods Pro (2nd generation) and an update to Apple Fitness+ via a virtual press conference filmed at Apple Park in Cupertino, California on September 7, 2022.[18][19]

Pre-orders began on September 9, with general availability from September 16 for the iPhone 14 and October 7 for the iPhone 14 Plus.[20]

Back of the iPhone 14

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have an identical design to the iPhone 13, although for the US models, the physical SIM tray is removed.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are available in five colors: Blue, Purple, Midnight, Starlight, and Product Red.[21] Purple is a new color replacing Pink used on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini.

Specifications

Hardware

iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are available in three internal storage configurations: 128, 256, and 512 GB. It has 6 GB of RAM, an increase over the iPhone 13 and 13 mini model's 4 GB of RAM. The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus have the same IP68 rating for dust and water resistance as their predecessors.[4]

Chipset

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are equipped with the Apple A15 Bionic system on a chip, the same variant used on the 2021 iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.[5] The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus feature a 6-core CPU, 5-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine.[4]

Display

The iPhone 14 features a 6.1-inch (155 mm) display with Super Retina XDR OLED technology at a resolution of 2532 × 1170 pixels and a pixel density of about 460 PPI with a refresh rate of 60Hz. The iPhone 14 Plus features a 6.7-inch (170 mm) display with the same technology at a resolution of 2778 × 1284 pixels and a pixel density of about 458 PPI. Both models have typical brightness up to 800 nits, and max brightness up to 1200 nits.[4]

Cameras

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus feature the same camera system with two cameras: one front-facing camera (12MP f/1.9), and two back-facing cameras: a wide (12MP f/1.5) and ultra-wide (12MP f/2.4) camera, with the wide and front-facing cameras having a faster aperture than the iPhone 13. The front facing camera also has autofocus for the first time.[22]

The cameras use Apple's latest computational photography engine, called Smart HDR 4. Users can also choose from a range of photographic styles during capture, including rich contrast, vibrant, warm, and cool. Apple clarifies this is different from a filter because it works intelligently with the image processing algorithm during capture to apply local adjustments to an image and the effects will be baked into the photos, unlike filters which can be removed after applying.[4]

The camera app contains Cinematic Mode, which allows users to rack focus between subjects and create (simulate) shallow depth of field using software algorithms. It is supported on wide and front-facing cameras in 4K at 30 fps.[4]

Battery

The iPhone 14 provides 20 hours of video playback, while the Plus variant provides 26 hours of video playback.[4]

Satellite connectivity

Apple's new Emergency SOS via satellite service for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models uses the spectrum in L and S bands designated for mobile satellite services by ITU Radio Regulations. When an iPhone user makes an Emergency SOS via satellite request, the message is received by an orbiting satellite operated by Globalstar. The satellite then sends the message down to ground stations located across the globe.[8]

As of November 2022, Globalstar operates a constellation of 24 satellites in low-earth orbit, with plans to enhance this in the future via its partnership with Apple.[8]

The service became available to US and Canada on November 15, 2022, and to the UK, Germany, Ireland, and France on 13th December, 2022.[28]

Criticism

Lack of change from the iPhone 13

This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it. (December 2022)

A major criticism of the iPhone 14 is that the base model has almost the same specifications of the iPhone 13, including the CPU. Until this iPhone was released, Apple had updated the CPU on both the regular and Pro models. Instead, this iPhone stays on the same chip as the iPhone 13.[29]

Crash Detection false positives

Crash Detection is a feature built into the iPhone 14 that is designed to detect severe car crashes and automatically initiates an emergency phone call 20 seconds after it is detected unless the user cancels it.[30] Since its release, there have been many reports saying that the feature was automatically turned on during rollercoaster rides, due to the fact that the rides suddenly stop after going at high speeds, acting the same way a car crash does.[31][32]
