Therefore, photography enthusiasts will prefer the iPhone 14 Pro Max, which has an additional and higher quality rear camera. In addition, this smartphone model has a larger optical zoom (x6 versus x2). In addition, the iPhone Pro and Pro Max are equipped with always-on function. This technology, which is already available on certain Android smartphones or on the Apple Watch Series 5, makes it possible to continue to display information even when the screen is in standby. Widgets such as weather, notifications from instant messages, social networks or even health applications can be displayed with only minimal energy consumption. Both of these models also have advantages including their functionality Dynamic Island which makes the notch at the top of the iPhone screen “disappear”. Made interactive, no longer causing inconvenience to the user. Finally, with up to 2000 nits of brightness outdoors, the screen is twice as bright as the iPhone 13 pro. The standard iPhone 14 and Plus models meanwhile hit up to 1200 nits.
What about the iPhone 14 mini?
As small screens are becoming increasingly unpopular among consumers, the iPhone 13 remains for now the last Apple smartphone to have a mini version with a 5.4-inch screen. The mini range may thus be lost in favor of the iPhone SE’s decline, including the 3e generation released in March 2022.
When is the iPhone 15?
If you’d rather wait for the iPhone 15 than invest in the iPhone 14, know that the release date could happen on September 2023 according to analyst Jeff Pu. Apple tends to present its new smartphones at the start of the school year, so this date should come as no surprise. Regarding the price of the iPhone 15, it’s hard to say whether at a marketing level the Apple brand will position it as a premium model or more affordable than the old iPhones. Inflation should however support rising prices due to rising energy and raw material costs.
