iPhone 14 is finally released at September 7 Apple event, and it brings a big change to the iPhone 14 Pro model.

Wondering if you should upgrade to an iPhone 14/Plus/Pro/Pro Max? Let's wait and compare the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 to see the differences.

1. Device Models and Color

Well, if you’re a fan of the mini series, you’re out of luck. The iPhone 14 lineup will drop the mini model. That means there will be no iPhone 14 mini this time around.

Instead, this year a larger version of the standard 14 was unveiled - iPhone 14 Plus(6.7-inch). That means there will be a non-pro iPhone 14 with the same display size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The iPhone 14 models come in blue, purple, midnight, starlight, and product red.

  • iPhone 14 and 14 Plus colors: starnight, midnight, blue, purple, product red.
  • iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max colors: space black, silver, gold, deep purple.

2. Display and Design

The second thing we’re going to talk about in our iPhone 13 vs 14 comparisons is the display and design.

If you’re going to opt-in for the standard, non-pro model, the design will mostly be the same. Plus, the display specifications and display design are also going to stay the same.

If you’re looking at the Pro models, however, there are some noticeable changes in the display. Apple built a new system called Dynamic Island, which provides a new way to interact with activities, alerts, and notifications.

Dynamic islands change shape and extend in real time to display vital warnings, notifications, and activities such as maps, music, timers, live events, battery levels, Face ID, and other things.

The iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max also released an always-on functionality. When iPhone is placed face down or in a pocket, it dims to save battery life. A new 1Hz to 120Hz refresh rate and better power-efficient technologies enable the Always-On display.

3. A15 or A16 Chip?

The chipset is an important consideration while discussing the topic “iPhone 14 vs 13” — and why wouldn’t it be? Apple is well-known for the industry-leading chips it has in the iPhones.

If you’re in for the standard, non-pro iPhone 14 models, you might be a bit disappointed. The non-pro iPhones have the same A15 chip as there was in the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max.

The iPhone 14 Pro models, however, get a shiny new Apple A16 chip.

4. Improved Camera

How can we complete an iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13 comparison without talking about the camera? Well, we can’t!

If you’re in for the standard 14 lineup, you won’t see any hardware changes. However, Apple introduced a new Main camera and image processing, which can do better in low-light photo shooting.

If you have your eyes on the Pro models, however, you’re in for an upgrade. The Pro models introduced a new, 48MP Main camera with an advanced quad-pixel sensor this time. So, you might see drastically better images in terms of detail and clarity.

  • The iPhone 14 Pro/Pro max is upgraded to 8GB.

6. New iPhone 14 Price

In general, the iphone 14 series is more expensive than the iPhone 13 series. Claimed to be the most expensive iPhone released by Apple.

  • The iPhone 14: 128GB-$799, 256GB-$899, 512GB-$1099.

8. Car Crash Detection

If you ever (we hope not!) get into a car accident, your new iPhone 14 will be able to detect that. When that happens, it will automatically call emergency services, like police, ambulance, and your emergency contacts to get you help ASAP.
