Get yourself the new iPhone 14 on a business contract now & read on to learn all the new features of the iPhone 14 Series; including new two safety services, a new A16 Bionic chip, details on the upgraded camera system and our iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14 comparison.

Apple iPhone 14 – New Apple Flagship

Last September, Apple released the iPhone 13 Series which revealed a new A15 chip, a smaller notch, an improved camera system with new sensors, the famous “cinematic” video mode, and a bigger battery – bringing up to 2 hours of life to the phone, amongst many other improvements.

Then, in March 2022, Apple launched the iPhone SE 2nd generation offering 5G and power to a 4.7″ size device. Learn more about the iPhone SE 2022 here.

This year, regarding the iPhone 14 Series, rumours were everywhere. Will there be a new A16? A whole new design for the front of the smartphone, perhaps a new device size… or even a new foldable Series?

Putting the iPhone 14 Rumours to Rest

After watching the Apple event on September 7th, we’re happy to confirm the known facts and stats once and for all. We can say immediately that these new models stick to the traditional design and do NOT fold – unlike the aptly named Z Flip 4 / Z Fold 4 released by Samsung last month.

However, two of the four new models are confirmed to possess the mighty new A16 chip. Find out which ones, along with all the specs and design changes below; along with all the extra features developed for the iPhone 14, including the new Apple satellite service!

What are the iPhone 14 Series’ New Features?

With every new release comes a flurry of new upgrades and optimisations, some of which can be easy to overlook. In this section, we cover all the new features of the iPhone 14 Series, from the Pro & Plus to the 13 Pro Max vs 14 Pro Max.

Other than the “dynamic island“, everything included in this section remains available as a feature on all new iPhone 14 models:

New iOS 16 Operating System

Perhaps the biggest FREE update to Apple’s iPhone Series (extending all the way to the iPhone 8), iOS 16 is the new brain to the 14’s brilliant new body. There are so many new fun & functional features packed into this new iOS 16 update, which looks set to start a number of new trends in the world of smartphones.

From custom lock screens to using Nintendo joysticks for mobile gaming, there honestly is far too much to cover in this post alone. Read our post and learn all about the latest iOS 16 update and new features now – or continue reading for Apple’s Satellite Service:

Apple Satellite Service

The new satellite service allows you to make an emergency call from anywhere – essentially spelling the end of the long outdated “satellite phone”. Your shiny new iPhone 14 will even ask you questions relating to your condition, such as “are you lost, hurt, or alone?”… How comforting!

This is a very useful feature to reserve for an emergency that should hopefully never come, and one we hope to see on all smartphones in future. However, you can still utilise this service for non-emergency functions, such as sharing your location with friends in an area with no network connection.

Worth noting that this is a subscription-based service, although early iPhone 14 adopters in the US/CA will enjoy 2-years of free use. We’re not sure what the cost of this service is after that, or if you will maintain the ability to use it in an emergency without membership, perhaps at a surcharge.

Crash Detection

Another fantastic new safety feature – Crash Detection was first integrated within the Apple Watch, before now making its way to all models in the iPhone 14 Series. But what is Apple Crash Detection, and how does it work?

iOS 16 Apple iPhone 14 and Apple Watch 8 crash detection feature

With a built-in high G-force accelerometer & gyroscope, your device will detect if you have been in a serious traffic accident. It will then automatically connect to the local emergency services and provide them with your location, alongside notifying and of your set emergency contacts.

According to Apple, this feature only operates when the user is driving and processes data after an accident. Apple Crash Detection is a very beneficial feature to have, and another inclusion we hope to see catch on as a standard amongst all new smartphone models.

Upgraded A15/A16 Bionic Chip

Apple A16 upgraded processor chip

We’re sure it comes as no surprise; all 4 models in the new iPhone 14 Series have received various upgrades to their components. Perhaps most critically is the internal chips – with the A15 (as seen in the iPhone 13) updated to offer increased GPU/CPU speed and power.

The A15 features on the iPhone 14 and Plus models, with the Pro & Pro Max models sporting a sparkling new A16 Bionic chip. This A16 chip is allegedly 40% faster than the A15 whilst using less power & putting less strain on the battery, among other components.

A Few Familiar Features

All models feature the same “Face ID” that we’ve grown so accustomed to. What’s more, like the previous 13 Series, all iPhone 14 smartphones feature 5G compatibility, eliminating long load times and allowing you to get the most out of your network.

IP68 Water Resistant & Ceramic Screen Protector

Have you ever bought a new phone and kept dreaming about accidentally destroying it in water, or is that just me? Well, worry no more… Like the 13 Series, all of the new iPhone 14 models claim a water resistance rating of IP68; remaining safe to submerge ~6 metres in depth, for up to 30 minutes (learn more about IP ratings here).

We’re happy to see this appear as a continued feature, which will likely save many hours waiting for a bag of rice to dry out your (once functional) phone. All models also claim a ceramic shield front, which is “tougher than any smartphone glass”, as stated by Apple. Sounds like it’s about time for a durability upgrade!

Dynamic Island for 14 Pro & Pro Max models

With a redesigned front camera, Apple has reimagined their trademark “notch” that had become such a design staple amongst their team. Now born again as the new and highly adaptive “Dynamic Island”.

This feature takes various forms to alert users of important notifications, activities, battery life and more. It’s essentially the new personal smartphone wingman for when you need it, keeping your day running smoothly & without unexpected surprises.

Finally, no more backchat from quirky virtual assistants (unless it’s Siri for business purposes)!

iPhone 14 Series Upgraded Camera

As is tradition, the new iPhone 14 Series sports an upgraded camera for each model. Every year, cameras become more compact and perform at a higher quality. Therefore, it’s no surprise these cutting-edge cameras have found their way into the new 14 Series.

How do they compare to last year?

We can clearly see these iPhone 14 models take advantage of a bigger battery, upgraded chipset and an incredible camera. It seems the biggest overhaul has come in the way of design, with a dash of new hardware. Interestingly, both the 14 and 14 Pro come available in two different size options:

With the immediate iPhone 14 specs and features out of the way, it’s time to see how they compare against their predecessors. Read on and find out how these new models shape up to last year’s 13 Series releases:

iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14 – Specs & Comparison

So, with the basic specifications covered, let’s answer the big question… What are the main differences between the iPhone 14 vs 13 models? Here are the main specs below:

So, even after that, you’re probably still wondering just exactly what is the difference between the iPhone 13 vs 14 models…

Put simply, the difference is minimal; the 14 claims a marginally faster processor chip, an improved camera, an extra 1 hour of battery and finally, the new crash detection & satellite features. Whilst the camera and other hardware upgrades are significant, we were hoping to see a little more innovation.

iPhone 13 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro – Specs & Comparison

With the stock models out of the way, let’s take a look at the iPhone 13 Pro vs iPhone 14 Pro and see how they shape up:

Although these models are still fairly similar, there is a far greater difference between the two Pro models. For starters, the iPhone 14 Pro claims a vastly upgraded camera with 4x the MP as the 13 Pro.

Perhaps most significant is the new A16 Bionic chip, which gives the new iPhone 14 Pro a clear edge in speed, power and capacity over the 13. It also accommodates a variety of other useful features, including Apple’s new “Dynamic Island”.

iPhone 13 Pro Max vs iPhone 14 Pro Max – Specs & Comparison

It’s finally time to move on to the most powerful iPhone models of 2022, the 13 Pro Max vs 14 Pro Max… A clash of titans!

Since release, the 13 Pro Max has accounted for ~3.4% of 56.5 million units sold (approx. 1,921,000 total units). Now, with the newly announced iPhone 14 Series to contend with, we wonder just how long the 13 Pro Max can keep the top spot.

The future is nothing if not uncertain. Settle your doubts about the two models and learn all the crucial info from our iPhone 14 Pro Max vs 13 Pro Max comparison below:

Always-On Display

Both models feature “ProMotion”, an upgraded 120Hz display that first debuted a few years back. However, the 14 Pro Max increases the distance with a new “Always-On” display. Also known as “Ambient Display“, this feature allows your smartphone to still show limited information, even when asleep.

The Most Powerful iPhone of 2022

Like our other comparisons, the differences are almost indistinguishable, until we get to the display, camera & chipset. This is where the iPhone 14 Pro Max demolishes the previous champion, boasting a camera 4x as powerful and the much faster A16 Bionic chip.

Unsurprisingly, the iPhone 14 Pro Max also features a slightly bigger battery capacity of 29 hours, 1 hour more than the i13. Alongside this, it also claims compatibility with all of the new Apple services, including crash detection and satellite connection. But is that really it, and should you upgrade to the new iPhone 14? Find out below:

Why should you upgrade to the new iPhone 14?

This year, the improvements are not huge. But, the Pro models are being boosted and we love the idea of a new “Plus” model which has the power of an excellent smartphone and a big screen, at a lower price.

Our favourite improvement this year is the new Dynamic Island. However, let’s not discount the powerful A16 chip, operating 40% faster and with less strain on the battery!
