Apple’s Far Out took place last night at Apple Park in Cupertino, California. The event was streamed on YouTube, where the company announced four new iPhone 14 series devices 一 iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. In addition to this, the company also announced the Apple Watch Series 8, new Apple Watch SE, and Apple Watch Ultra. Lastly, the company announced the AirPods Pro 2 TWS.
As expected, the iPhones took the limelight during and after the event. First, Apple has officially ditched the iPhone mini lineup, and second, the company has re-introduced the iPhone Plus model. In this guide, we will look at the major differences between all four iPhone models and which one you should pick.
iPhone 14 vs iPhone 14 Plus vs iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro Max: What are the differences
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have a lot of similarities, and so does the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro come with a 6.1-inch OLED display, while the Plus and Pro Max models have larger 6.7-inch OLED displays. Only the Pro models come with a 120Hz LTPO display, while 14 and 14 Plus still come with a 60Hz panel. The Pro models also support always on display.
Another major differentiator comes in the form of SoCs. While the iPhone 14 Pro series are powered by Apple’s new A16 SoC, the vanilla and the Plus models come with the last-gen A15 lineup. The new SoC offers better performance and efficiency as well.
The major difference, however, comes in the form of the cameras. The Pro models come with a 48MP main camera, a 12MP telephoto, and a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens, and the other two models feature dual 12MP (main + ultrawide).
iPhone 14 vs iPhone 14 Plus vs iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro Max: Which One Should You Buy
Like any purchase, the iPhone 14 decision also comes down to budget and personal preference. The new iPhones come with the most basic and expected incremental upgrades over the last generation. If you have the budget and want the latest iPhone with new SoC, large screen, improved battery life and camera features, you can go with the iPhone 14 Pro Max. If you want the same, but in a smaller form factor, you can go with the iPhone 14 Pro.
Further, if you are ok with the last-gen chipset and some minor improvements, including the camera, the iPhone 14 Plus is for you. Lastly, the Apple iPhone 14 is for you if you want the most compact and affordable iPhone from the latest lineup.
