Apple iPhone 14 product details

Apple's iPhone 14 is the entry-level model for 2022/2023, and this time is available in two sizes; 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch. This iPhone 14 is the smallest of the bunch and features crash detection and a more light-sensitive camera this year. But many things have also remained the same.

Camera improvements

"Never change a winning team." That's what Apple must have thought when they made this iPhone 14. It features the same screen, the same chipset, and the same cameras. Put the iPhone 14 next to an iPhone 13, and no one will notice the difference. As if Apple would instead you look at the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro. Still, there are some differences. For one, thanks partly to software optimizations, the camera is 2x better at taking pictures in low light. This is partly due to the Photonic Engine but also the physically larger sensor and the brighter f/1.5 lens. The selfie camera also gets the Photonic Engine, and this year features autofocus, so you get sharp shots more often. No matter how far or close you hold your iPhone.

Crash detection

Inside the iPhone 14, Apple still uses the A15 Bionic processor, the same as in the iPhone 13. According to Apple, it is fast enough, and that chipset still beats the competition. So there is no reason to upgrade it. However, it does have more RAM, so you can keep more apps open. This should improve overall performance as well. Also, the battery capacity seems slightly larger, although Apple still claims a battery life of "one day." What is entirely new, however, is crash detection. Thanks to various sensors, iPhone 14 knows if you have been involved in a car accident. If you do nothing, it automatically calls the emergency number and alerts your SOS contacts.

Main Apple iPhone 14 specifications

  • 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display with Ceramic Shield
  • Double 12MP camera with f/1.5 lens gives 2 to 2.5x more light-sensitive shots
  • 12MP selfie camera with autofocus and Face ID face unlock
  • Same powerful A15 Bionic chip but with more RAM memory
  • Choice of 128, 256 and 512 GB of non-expandable storage memory
  • Waterproof IP68 aluminum and glass housing

Emergency SOS via Satellite

Apple has equipped the iPhone 14 with satellite communications. This works at the time of release only in the U.S. and Canada and allows you to send emergency messages when you have no cellular connection. You then have to point the iPhone 14 to the nearest satellite with the help of iOS 16. The service seems to be coming to other countries eventually, and prices have not yet been announced. So don't buy it because of this feature because at the time of writing, we really have no idea when and if it's coming here.

Who is this iPhone for anyway?

Other than that, Apple has mostly left the design of the iPhone 14 untouched. You'll still find the notch at the top containing Face ID, the waterproof aluminum body, and a 6.1" screen with Ceramic Shield. Real progress is only seen with the Pro models. Then, of course, there's still the iPhone 14 Plus with its larger screen and substantially larger battery, but it doesn't differ much else either. So Apple seems to be taking things a little easier. That leaves the question, who exactly is this phone for? Those coming from an iPhone 13 (or even iPhone 12) can safely skip it. The difference is too small, and the price is too high. Indeed, this has risen considerably due to the sharply lowered Euro against the Dollar. Those who necessarily need a new iPhone are also better off looking at previous models. They are cheaper. Only if you necessarily want a purple iPhone, then go for this iPhone 14.

Apple iPhone 14 in the news

ts Ifixit Teardown iPhone 14

Apple surprises with better repairable iPhone 14

Phone news ·

Without mentioning it, Apple has significantly changed the design of the iPhone 14, making it better repairable. This became apparent by a teardown by iFixit.

For years, iFixit has rated products on how easy they are to repair. Usually, Apple products, especially iPhones, score very low. As if Apple would rather you buy a new one instead of repairing it. Sounds crazy, we know. The iPhone 14 is different, slightly different at least. Apple's newest phone scores a 7 out of 10. Remarkably high for an iPhone.

That's because of how components are placed. Normally Apple glues the back shut and puts all the components on top of each other like a hamburger, with the screen coming last. As a result, when you need to replace something, you must remove the screen first, just until you get to the part, you need replacing. Even for a broken rear panel, you can't get around this. Making it quite cumbersome and expensive.

Somewhat easier to repair

In the iPhone 14, Apple uses a kind of middle frame on which all the components are placed. This allows the iPhone 14 to be opened from both the front and back, making components more accessible and easier to replace. The biggest internal change since the iPhone 7. This makes simple repairs much more affordable.

Self Service Repair Program

It is notable that Apple has not mentioned easier repairs for the iPhone 14. Especially since it grandly announced another repair service for customers in early 2022. Apple's Self Service Repair program consists of repair manuals, parts, and special tools but is only available to US users for now.

Earlier, Apple announced that the program would be rolled out to other countries before the end of 2022. However, at the time of writing, that has not yet happened.

Apple announces iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus with satellite communication

Phone news ·

During a prerecorded keynote, Apple announced the Apple iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max. The first two devices are Apple's entry-level phones. Especially the iPhone 14 Plus stands out. It is a larger version of the entry-level model. A mini iPhone is missing this year.

On paper, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus fail to impress. For example, like the Apple iPhone 13 from a year ago, the iPhone 14 features the same A15 Bionic processor. It is the first time Apple has equipped a new iPhone with an older processor. According to Apple, the competition cannot match the performance of the A15. The Pro models do get an updated processor.

Apple introduces iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

Like last year, the iPhone 14 features a 6.1-inch XDR OLED screen with Dolby Vision and Ceramic Shield protection. This year, there are five colors: Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple, and (product)RED. The amount of storage also sounds familiar; 128, 256, and 512GB. The asking price, however, goes up. Especially for European customers, it is a bit of a shock. According to Apple, this is because of the lower Euro exchange rate. Prices start at €1,019 for the 128GB version and go up to €1,409 for the model with 512GB of storage.

Photonic Engine

According to Apple, especially the camera is new. The primary and ultra-wide-angle cameras have a 12MP sensor, but the main sensor is larger. Moreover, the f/1.5 aperture of the lens is a lot brighter. Apple claims a 49% greater light intake as a result. And through a new algorithm called Photonic Engine, the iPhone camera should shoot better shots in the dark across all cameras. This applies to both the iPhone 14 and the larger iPhone 14 Plus.

Main features iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
The main features of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

iPhone 14 Plus

The iPhone 14 Plus can be seen as the bigger brother of the iPhone 14. In addition to a larger 6.7-inch screen, it features a larger battery. According to Apple, the 14+ boasts the longest battery life ever. Apple claims 26 hours of video playback, 20 hours of video streaming, and 100 hours of audio playback.

Emergency SOS via satellite

Apple also announced a new connectivity mode which can come in handy in emergencies. You can connect via a satellite in places without signal reception or WiFi. Pointing your iPhone to the nearest satellite makes it possible to send messages. The iOS software helps you find the right satellite. Apple uses Low Earth Orbit satellites from Globalstar.

Emergency SOS via satellite
Send emergency messages via satellite

Emergency SOS via satellite can deliver messages as text or voice to various emergency centers and, for now, only works in the US and Canada. The service is free for the first two years and will start in November. It is unclear what the rates will be after that and when the service will be rolled out elsewhere.

ts Apple Keynote 7 September 2022

Apple confirms launch date iPhone 14 series

Industry news ·

Apple has sent out invitations for an in-person event. It's the first time in 3 years that an audience will be present during the launch of a new iPhone. Expect the release of the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max on September 7 in the Steve Jobs Theater.

Apple is notorious for hiding references in its invitation. We see a starry sky in the invitation Apple sent out. Does this mean the iPhone 14 camera gets a new night mode? Is it a reference to the new telephoto lens of the iPhone 14 Pro?

No one can say for sure. There are persistent rumors, though, that the Pro models, in particular, will get a new 48MP camera. Also, those will get a new screen with multiple punch holes instead of a notch. Also, expect a new and upgraded Apple A processor.

Few differences iPhone 14?

What differences the iPhone 14 will get is still unclear. Rumors say that the model will get the same Apple A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 13. Should Apple do so, this will be the first time that Apple does not apply a new processor for a new iPhone. Whether that is the case should become apparent on September 7. Apple's Keynote starts at 10:00 Pacific Time.

Multiple sources mention launch date Apple iPhone 14

Rumors ·

Several sources have independently named a date when Apple may announce the iPhone 14 series. That date is Wednesday, September 7, 2022.

In the past, Apple announced new iPhones at the beginning of September, usually on a Tuesday. But because Tuesday, September 6, is preceded by a U.S. holiday, Apple is shifting the event to the next day, or so this rumor goes. The date of September 7 is mentioned by both Mark Gurman of Bloomberg and Max Weinbach. Also @ihacktu reports the date although he previously mentioned Wednesday, September 13, along with iDropNews, as a possible launch date.

Not long now and Apple CEO Tim Cook announces new iPhones

During this keynote, Apple will most likely announce four new iPhones; the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Max, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. This means that we won't see a new iPhone mini for the first time in years. That model will disappear from the lineup.

iPhone 14 predictions

As for the iPhone 14, the rumors are somewhat gloomy. It reportedly runs under the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13, almost having the same screen with the Face ID notch. The changes this year will be mostly found in the Pro models. Those get a new processor, a different screen with pill-shaped cutouts for Face ID, and a higher 48MP camera. They may also be more expensive than the iPhone 13 Pro from last year.

What remains of the above prediction remains to be seen. Perhaps Apple will surprise us with a "One More Thing." There are rumors of new smartwatches, including an SE model. If this rumor holds up, we will hear more on Wednesday, September 7.

No 120Hz display for Apple iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max

But don't let that be a dealbreaker

Rumors ·

To entice future customers to spend more money, Apple is not equipping the entry-level iPhone 14 and slightly larger iPhone 14 Max with a 120Hz ProMotion screen. However, the Pro models do get a screen with a high refresh rate. But this doesn't have to be a big deal.

Those who currently want an iPhone with a 120Hz screen should go for the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max. This has a ProMotion screen that refreshes images up to 120 times per second making animations and transitions look smoother. The entry-level iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini stick to 60Hz maximum. Apple is applying that same distinction for 2022.

iPhone with ProMotion display
The ProMotion display changes between 10 and 120Hz

120Hz has been common for Android phones for years, even on cheaper models. Yet this doesn't feel as smooth as an iPhone with a 120Hz display. That's because of how Android and iOS deal with animations. iOS handles such animations much more smoothly than Android. So an Android with a 120Hz screen feels much smoother than an Android with a 60Hz screen. In comparison, an iPhone with a 120Hz feels marginally smoother than an iPhone with a 60Hz screen.

Perception: one does the other doesn't

And so, as far as we're concerned, there's no need to write off the immediately iPhone 14 because it "just" has a 60Hz screen. We also hear from customers that some do not even see the difference between 60 and 120Hz. So it's not bad if your future iPhone has a lower refresh rate.

Apple iPhone 14 may come September 13

Rumors ·

Apple usually announces its next generation of iPhones in September. That should come as no surprise. But we now have a possible date when Apple will announce the iPhone 14. Perhaps Tuesday, September 13, 2022.

This date was mentioned by iDropNews. They reportedly learned that Apple will announce "something" in week 37. And since Apple usually holds press events on a Tuesday, that results in the date of September 13.

Will Tim Cook announce new iPhones on September 13?

There is not much evidence if you ask us. If Apple does hold a keynote on this date, it most likely has an audience for the first time in years. Because of Corona, this was not possible for a long time resulting in broadcasting keynotes online. Apple used a format that was liked by many because of its slick production.

AirPods Pro 2 and Apple Watch Series 8

Should Apple indeed announce the iPhone 14 on September 13, it will not be the only product launch. The iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max and the new iPhone 14 Max are also expected to be announced. This automatically means the end of the mini model.

The source further suggests that Apple may also announce the AirPods Pro 2. These may get an entirely new look without the famous stem. There is also a chance that the Apple Watch Series 8 will see the light of day. Three different versions may be released; a regular, an SE, and an Extreme Edition. If this rumor is true, it promises to be a packed event.

ts iPhone 14 Serie Molds

Dummy Apple iPhone 14 series shows 4 different models

Rumors ·

So-called molds of the upcoming iPhone 14 series have surfaced. We see a total of 4 different models and get a good idea of the difference in size.

Four different iPhone 14 models. A 6.1-inch large iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch large iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Missing from this is a small iPhone 14 mini. That model will be discontinued starting from 2022.

iPhone 14 molds

Biggest difference between the regular iPhone 14 models and the Pro version are the cameras. The Pro will get 3 cameras on the back, the entry-level models will get 2. Apple is already applying this strategy except that there is no larger Max version of the iPhone 13. We don't know yet if it's optical trickery but the already hefty camera module seems to be getting even bigger for this year.

48MP camera

The latter could very well be the case given another rumor. Apple wants to (finally) trade the 12MP sensor for a larger one. A 48MP to be precise. This is not only results in sharper images but the sensor is also physically larger.

Another difference is found at the front. Instead of one wide notch, Apple is switching to a pill shape + punch-hole. This would then contain all the Face ID components. The whole thing still takes up a substantial portion but looks less large because there are pixels all around it.

End for iPhone 11

Other differences may be slightly thinner screen bezels, 120Hz ProMotion screens only for the Pro models. What remains is the same A15 Bionic processor. Although we don't rule out Apple marginally tweaking it so it can release it as the A16 Bionic. Another rumor is that Apple will discontinue the iPhone 11 once the iPhone 14 is announced. After this, the iPhone 12 will become the new entry-level model.

Kuo: Apple iPhone 14 gets same old A15 Bionic processor

Rumors ·

Every year Apple announced new a new iPhone with a new chipset. Not this year so it seems. Because starting with the iPhone 14 wants to recycle the year-old Apple A15 Bionic processor according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. He expects only the iPhone 14 Pro to get the new A16.

The launch of the new Apple iPhone 14 and 14 Pro is still a long way off. But that doesn't mean Apple isn't working on it. According to the usually well-informed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will get the new Apple A16 Bionic chip. The iPhone 14 and the "iPhone 14 Max" will get last year's A15.

First of all, let's talk about those names. 4 different models of which the iPhone mini is missing. Instead, Apple is introducing a entry level iPhone 14 of 6.1 inches and a larger iPhone 14 Max of 6.7 inches. Both feature 6GB of LPDDR4X type RAM memory and thus the Apple A15 Bionic. The same chip as in the entire iPhone 13 lineup.

Only iPhone Pro with A16 Bionic

In the Pro segment, we expect the iPhone 14 Pro of also 6.1 inches and a larger iPhone 14 Pro Max of 6.7 inches. According to Kuo, both models also get 6GB of RAM memory but the faster LPDDR5 and thus the latest Apple A16 Bionic.

There are several reasons why Apple is switching to this strategy. Perhaps it wants to make more distinction between the regular iPhone and the Pro models. Perhaps the chip shortage has something to do with it. For now we don't know.


Apple is known for its somewhat conservative release of new iPhone models. It is very careful to introduce new technologies like OLED displays, high refresh rates, periscope lenses and fast charging. It also prone to use the same design for many years such as the recently announced iPhone SE 3 which uses the same iPhone 8 design from 2017.

Using a year-old processor fits right into that strategy. It feeds to the critics who accuse Apple of "lazy behavior" when releasing new products. Nevertheless, Apple has nothing to fear because even the Apple A15 Bionic processor scores better than the best processors of the competition.

Schematic Apple iPhone 14 shows double hole for camera

Rumors ·

For some time now, it has been rumored that Apple is also moving away from the notch. Instead, the iPhone 14 will get a punch-hole. But not a single hole because Face ID requires some more space. So there will be two holes, and together they will take up as much space as the previous notch.

As mentioned, the iPhone 14 does not get a single Hole-Punch camera. Most Android phones have one; a tiny round in the middle of the screen or in the corner. Some manufacturers experimented with a dual selfie camera placed inside a pill shape. Apple seems to be doing the latter now as well.

Apple iPhone 14 hole punch camera
Schematic iPhone 14

But to have a unique design, that pill is accompanied by a punch-hole. The reason is probably because the various Face ID components need space. Apple has bet big on face recognition and then concessions have to be made elsewhere. As becomes evident by looking at the picture above.

No more screen space

We see the layout of the new screen with the various cutouts. Whether this looks good, we leave that up to you. Who, with the earlier news, had counted on a less obstructing notch will be disappointed. The display of the iPhone 14 doesn't get many more pixels. All in all, the punch-holes take up almost as much space as the current notch.
