Last month, Apple debuted its newest flagship product, the iPhone 14. As with all of its launches, Apple claimed that it had produced something that might change the world and maybe solve all of your problems, but public reaction to the device has been lackluster since its introduction. When we look attentively at the device, we can see that the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 are quite similar and don’t vary much.
They conducted some mysterious processes merging hardware and software to work flawlessly with the notch or Dynamic Island stuff. The Pro models included a slew of new features that should be enough to persuade many Android users to move to iOS. But, will an extra $700-$800 enough for you?
We’ll go through some of the features of the iPhone 14, and you can decide for yourself if it’s worth upgrading from the iPhone 13 to the iPhone 14. I won’t go into detail since the iPhone 14 Plus has a bigger display.
Given the iPhone 13’s small size, Apple put a large battery into the device, allowing for up to 15 hours of video streaming and up to 75 hours of music playback. The iPhone 14, on the other hand, offers a little longer screen time. In reality, the iPhone 14’s battery is the same size as the 13’s. Apple claims that the iPhone 14 can play music for up to 80 hours and watch films for up to 16 hours. While these are obviously impressive statistics, you already possess an iPhone 13, thus they do not justify spending an extra $1,000 on them.
If you bought your iPhone within the last two years, you already know it has a superb camera. Apple has made small tweaks to the new iPhone 14 camera, but the significant advances, such as the 48MP sensor, are only available on the iPhone 14 Pro.
The “not-pro” iPhone 14 has a 12MP camera sensor, much as the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 has greater low-light performance thanks to a larger sensor that can collect more light, but how frequently do you take photos in low light?
iPhone 13 boasts 6.1 Super Retina XDR OLED with Dolby Vision. It has an average brightness of 800 nits and a maximum brightness of 1200 nits. It also has a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a resolution of 1170 x 2532 pixels. The iPhone 13, like the iPhone 14, has an 86% screen-to-body ratio and a pixel density of 460 PPI. Among other things, it has an oleophobic coating and scratch-resistant ceramic glass for screen protection. And, believe it or not, the iPhone 14 has the same number; not a single element of its display has been enhanced.
The standard iPhone 14 is powered by Apple’s older A15 Bionic CPU, which was also used in the iPhone 13 series, whilst the iPhone 14 Pro is powered by Apple’s newest and finest technology, the A16 Bionic. It’s obviously not a slouch, but it does have certain limitations. One of the biggest issues with mobile chipsets is heat management, and the A15 Bionic certainly gets heated when under a lot of demand. If you’re playing a strenuous game like Genshin Impact, your phone may suffer frame rate reductions and reduce screen brightness to keep itself cool.
Even while Apple uses the 5-core GPU variant of the A15 Bionic in the iPhone 14 and claims to have improved thermal design over last year, you’re still getting an older CPU with less power than the A16 Bionic in the iPhone 14 Pro.
We could go on and on about this disparity. In reality, the storage configurations on both phones are the same. Both models come with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of storage. However, there is a difference in RAM. The iPhone 14 features 6GB of NVMe RAM over 4GB on the iPhone 13. But is the extra cash worth it?
Steve Job’s Daughter Made The Correct Remarks
In an Instagram story joke, Eve Jobs, the daughter of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, poked fun at the iPhone 14’s similarities to the iPhone 13. A meme stated:
Following Apple’s announcement today, I’m upgrading from my iPhone 13 to an iPhone 14, and the graphic depicts a man handing out attire that resembles his own.
