The day has come: after several months of rumors and speculation, the new generation of Apple’s phone is now official. The iPhone 14 has been presented by the Cupertino company at an event full of news where we have also met its older brothers, three different Apple Watch, and headphones.
As expected, the successor to the iPhone 13 maintains many of its features. It does not bring with it a radical change in design and performance, but it does improve some other detail that is worth reviewing.

Improvements in the cameras… and little else
As we see in the datasheet, there are several features that the iPhone 14 inherits directly from the previous generation. One of the most striking is the processor, as Apple has decided to equip this model with the Apple A15 Bionic and its five-core GPU that we saw in the iPhone 13 Pro. The storage options are also the same: 128, 256, and 512GB.
The design is quite continuous and, despite some rumors to the contrary, both the screen notch and the Lightning port for charging and data transfer are maintained (no USB-C, for the moment). Again, we are IP68 certified for resistance to water and dust.
On the front, we have a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR screen with a resolution of 2,532 x 1,170 pixels and a 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera with f/1.9 aperture. The rear camera repeats the configuration with two 12-megapixel sensors each (the main one is 1.9 μm and with f/1.5 aperture), optical sensor-shift image stabilization, and an improved True Tone flash. Apple claims that both cameras (front and rear) capture much more light.
The operating system that comes standard, of course, is iOS 16, but the iPhone 14 adds some interesting functions, such as the Apple Watch accident detection or the satellite connection in emergencies (the latter, for the moment, only in the United States and Canada). As for the SIM slot, it disappears in the United States but remains in the rest of the countries, including Spain.
Apple has not revealed the battery capacity, but it does state that the iPhone 14 offers greater autonomy than the previous model. In addition, it supports fast charging, wireless charging, and MagSafe.
