How the pricing table works

Apple’s presentation of its new iPhone series, including the new 14 Plus model, but also 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max versions, brings to light an iPhone 14 that looks similar to its predecessor , the iPhone 13, which you can find the test above. While waiting for our technical tests, we will examine the elements that differentiate, or not, the two terminals. Set that, de factothe iPhone 14 gets a year of software support, released in iOS 16 when its predecessor debuted in iOS 15. On average, Apple launches five OS upgrades to its devices.

Overall, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 are very similar. Both sport a 6.1-inch OLED screen that displays 1170 x 2532 pixels and reveals a large notch. In terms of format, however, there are slight differences. While the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 both measure 146.7 x 71.5mm, the latter is slightly thicker: 7.8mm compared to 7.65mm for its predecessor. He also lost a gram in the process, weighing 172 grams.

The devil is here decidedly in the details. And if we consider the differences between the two devices, they are mainly in the photography area. We note all the same that the new gyroscope and accelerometer are included in the iPhone 14, to ensure the detection of accidents announced by Apple. Equipped with the Apple A15 Bionic chip formally formulated last year, the iPhone 14 has a version with 6 CPU cores, a 16-core Neural Engine, but gets a GPU core (5 instead of 4) . So it should provide slightly better graphics performance.

If Apple does not specify the capacity of the battery that powers its device, the estimates also rely on a 3279 mAh battery instead of 3240 mAh, which explains the announcement of an additional autonomy of one hour (20 hours of video playback for iPhone 14 instead of 19 for iPhone 13). There is support for Bluetooth 5.3 on the iPhone 14, replacing Bluetooth 5.0 on the iPhone 13, and for satellite communications – which is currently reserved for North America.

The differences are actually reserved for shooting

In the field of photography, we do not see at first glance any difference between the two devices. On paper, both have two 12-megapixel sensors each, one with wide-angle optics and the other with ultra-wide angle. However, some minor changes should be credited to the iPhone 14.

Apple showed that it included in its iPhone 14 a main photo sensor that is larger than the iPhone 13. So it measures 1 / 1.7 “against 1 / 1.9”, and the manufacturer announced a size on photosites increased from 1.7 µm to 1.9 µm. Bigger, so they should catch more light, and therefore be able to restore more information. It adds a larger optical aperture, the iPhone 14’s wide-angle lens opening to f/1.5 instead of f/1.6 for the iPhone 13.

The iPhone 14 photo block

Apple also announced an improvement in low-light shots at wide angle and ultra-wide angle. Its Photonic Engine, which was inaugurated in the 14 series and actually represents new image processing algorithms, promises to improve the details of poorly exposed shots. This is what we will verify during our laboratory test.

The last points to improve the rear photo block of the iPhone 14 are related to the video. Apple has indeed inaugurated the Action mode, which promises to use the entire photo sensor to compensate for movements during recording, and offers more advanced stabilization than the iPhone 13. Unless surprised, the smartphone in 2021 will not benefit from this option. The iPhone 14 also gets a Cinematic mode that works up to 4K HDR at 30 fps, versus 1080p at 30 fps for the iPhone 13.

Finally, let’s finish with the TrueDepth front camera of the iPhone 14. It benefits from the same kind of improvements as the photo block on the back of the smartphone. Its sensor retains its definition of 12 Mpx, but its optics now open at f / 1.9 instead of f / 2.2. Cinematic mode now works up to 4K HDR and the Photonic Engine is in the game.

In summary

front photo sensor 12MP (f/2.2 wide angle) 12 MP (wide angle f/1.9)

Wireless Wi-Fi 6 Wi-Fi 6
Bluetooth 5.0 5.3

As you can see, expect very little improvement in image capture between generations 13 and 14 of the iPhone; however, we have to check in our laboratory test if the theory announced by Apple translates into a visible profit in practice. However, these slow additions result in an increase in price: count to 1019 € for the iPhone 14, when its elders show, even now and with the same savings, a starting price of 909 €.
