New and old when the iPhone 14 series makes its debut

Apple keeps the tradition alive and it’s no surprise that new iPhone models are on the menu when the September event rolls around. It turns out that the rumor mill in recent months has ground material with a high level of truth, when it now turns out that the iPhone 14 mostly reuses the characteristics of the predecessor and fiddles with a smaller format, while on the Pro front it happens all the more.

With the iPhone 14, the screen sizes will be the same as last year’s Pro-branded siblings, i.e. 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively. Thus, the relatively compact Mini format goes to the grave and only large and larger remain, with the latter being distinguished by a final Plus in terms of name. The same angular design and shell as in previous phones is used, and the Bionic A15 chipset makes a return visit.

Apple assures that the competition is still struggling to catch up with even older Bionic system chips, while this division becomes a way for the company to seriously differentiate the phones with the Pro suffix. With the iPhone 14, the last thing is squeezed out of the circuit to drive a new set of cameras. As before without the Pro suffix, there are two in number that apply, still at 12 megapixels each. However, the main camera gets a new, larger sensor and, together with the f/1.5 aperture, it should provide a significant improvement when photographing objects in motion and in poorer lighting conditions.

The 12 megapixel front camera is also updated and, like those adorning the back, the major improvements in image quality occur in lower light. The parade number is autofocus, which for the first time is also integrated at the front.

New Pro design marks the flipper as out

Apple was one of the first players to take a bite out of the screen, to accommodate the camera and sensors for facial recognition, something that was done in connection with the iPhone 10 seeing the light of day. The relatively large, black flap at the top of the screens has since become something of a signature for the company’s phones, but with recent Mac computers, the same aesthetic features are embraced. When Apple now lifts the lid on the iPhone 14 Pro and big brother 14 Pro Max, they state that it is finished with the flip pen.

Instead, a pill-shaped zone is now debuting detached from the phone’s edges, which on the surface is smaller than the older flip. Dating the older phones through new designs is one way of looking at it, but Apple says it’s about a lift and that the name is Dynamic Island. In this area, there are sensors and camera just like before, and the screen surface is baked in as a discreet part in many of the notification boxes that the company displays.

In addition, the exterior does not offer any aesthetic revisions. The edge of steel and the front and back of tempered glass surround the 6.1 and 6.7 inch screens. These are of the AMOLED type with a dynamic refresh rate in the range 1–120 Hz, as well as of so-called always-on-type. This means that the lock screen is always on, but with lower brightness. The clock and notifications on the lock screen is one of the central aspects of iOS 16 that was previewed earlier this summer, so this feature is not a long shot. High maximum brightness of a maximum of 2,000 cd/m² and pixel density of 460 pixels per inch are other specifications worth mentioning.

The Bionic A16 is the debut of 4 nanometers

Under the shell, more news awaits, where the iPhone 14 duo’s year-old system circuit Bionic A15 in the Pro phones is replaced by Bionic A16. It is a system circuit manufactured on TSMC’s 4-nanometer process. The processor part is a six-core story with two powerful and twice as many energy-efficient cores, which are both more powerful and energy-efficient than the Bionic A15. The five-core graphics part gets increased memory bandwidth and is accompanied by dedicated hardware for the screen.

The signal handler, processor and graphics part of the system circuit interact with the AI ​​and machine learning oriented Neural Enginepart to create better images with the iPhone 14 Pro duo. Computational Photography is central to creating better images than the small camera sensors of the phone world actually allow, and Apple announces that they combine and collect more image data than before, to, among other things, provide better image performance in low light conditions.

Camera lift for light in the dark

In addition, the actual camera hardware gets a lift on several fronts, with the biggest upgrade seen in the main camera on the back. The company leaves the gold standard 12 megapixels for 48 megapixels, which in standard mode combine four pixels into one for more light. In a new pro photo mode, the full resolution can be used. Optical image stabilization and f/1.78 aperture are specified, alongside a focal length equivalent to a 24mm lens.

12 megapixels is still the maximum resolution for the accompanying three cameras, where the ultra-wide-angle variant is f/2.2 and the focal length corresponds to 13 millimeters. Optical zoom of 3× can be seen with the last camera on the back, which has optical image stabilization and f/2.8, as well as a focal length corresponding to a 77 millimeter lens. The camera on the front a 12-megapixel variant with f/1.9 aperture. Finally, Apple highlights that the flash is improved, with nine LEDs that light up in different ways based on the camera in use.

As usual, Apple is vague when it comes to details such as battery life and the amount of primary memory. The latter is not touched upon at all, while the battery life is vaguely formulated as “enough for the whole day”. This translates to up to 23 hours of video playback with the iPhone 14 Pro and 29 hours with the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Both can be fast charged with a Lightning connector and a 20-watt charger, but the duo also supports Magsafe and Qi charging, but then slower charging at 15 and 7.5 watts, respectively. Only one cable comes with the phones.

Price and availability

The Pro-branded variants come in black, silver, gold and dark purple. Apple keeps the same dollar prices as for last year’s models, but with the current exchange rate, the Swedish prices are higher. The cheapest of the two is the iPhone 14 Pro with 128 GB storage space, where the price tag is SEK 14,995. The larger variant costs SEK 16,495 for the same amount of storage. Double storage adds SEK 1,500 to the price, and for 1 TB of space, the phones cost SEK 22,195 and SEK 23,695, respectively.

For iPhone 14, with or without Plus, there will instead be a choice between five different colors. Black and white are joined by three slightly more colorful ones in light blue, light purple and red. With a minimum storage space of 128 GB, the iPhone 14 starts at SEK 11,995, while the larger Plus model starts at SEK 13,495. As with the Pro variants, the price then rises by 1,500 for the step up to double. 1 TB is not offered here, but at most 512 GB applies and then for SEK 16,495 and SEK 17,995 respectively.

All four models can be pre-ordered from 9 September at 14:00. The iPhone 14 and both iPhone 14 Pro models arrive since September 16. The Plus variant takes slightly longer, arriving only on October 7.
