Apple has already introduced its new generation of mobile phones. The iPhone 14 are already among us with some changes compared to the last generation. The main difference, at least in terms of organization, is that the compact Mini model disappears to make way for a new 6.7-inch Plus model. But the family is still quadruple, with the iPhone 14 at the bottom and the iPhone 14 Pro at the top.
It is therefore time to compare both generations. To see what has changed between the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14, in addition to the logical evolutions in power due to the change in processor. But beware because there are also organizational changes in this, as we will tell you now. Let’s see if we can answer the classic question after Apple’s events, which iPhone do I buy now, the iPhone 13 or the iPhone 14?
The expected jump in power has been divided into two
Every year, Apple introduces a new processor that revolutionizes what we had seen the previous year in terms of raw power. And for some generations, also in artificial intelligence. This year, however, the presentation has been divided because so have their families. Yes, we have had a new Apple A16 Bionic. But it has remained only for the Pro models, for the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
What has happened then with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus? That they receive the Apple A15 Bionic last year, although with improvements in power. Yes, it is the same processor but we are talking about a kind of overclock that stays halfway between generations. The result is that we get two iPhone 14s (including the Plus) that do not differ too much in power from the previous generation, the iPhone 13.
Are they more powerful? Yes. Enough to justify betting on the previous generation instead of the new one? Each user must decide. Regarding memories, there have been no changes. Apple continues to bet on a trio of storage: 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB. Although for this year we do have more RAM, Apple has not officially said so. 6GB for everyone compared to 4GB for the iPhone 13. It is not little.
Photo Changes Most Beneficial for Pros
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus bet on a configuration that is not quite known to us at Apple. A couple of 12 megapixels on the back, one for normal (wide) photos and one for super wide-angle photos. A fairly continuous configuration concerning that of the iPhone 13 that obtains its main improvements at the software level. Although with such closeness in raw power and sharing the operating system, they will not have anything exclusive.
If what you want is a Pro, you should know that Apple has been much more generous with them in photographic matters.
Different is what has happened with the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. Here Apple has done the rest and, from the outset, has multiplied the resolution of the main rear camera. We are no longer talking about 12 megapixels but 48 megapixels. Cameras with an f/1.78 lens stabilized with the second generation of Apple technology and with many improvements at the software level. As we have said, Apple has gone all out with the Pro but has stopped halfway with the normal ones.
On the front, we do have an interesting change, eye. The 12-megapixel camera located above the notch of the iPhone 14 and, inside the island of the Pro, now has autofocus. Something that had not happened until now in the entire history of the iPhone. So yes, there is a noticeable change for the iPhone 14 in terms of selfies. In the rest, conflicting sensations. Sensitive benefits for those who bet on an iPhone 14 Pro instead of an iPhone 13 Pro. But when it comes to normal iPhones, things are not clear at all.
