Apple iPhone 14 release date, price and features

Apple’s newest iPhone 14 series, which was announced during the “Far Out” event on September 7, 2022, has been on the market for some time. The newest iPhone generation  has four models: the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The absence of a “small” model this year has been replaced by a bigger, more inexpensive iPhone, the iPhone 14 Plus. It shares components with the ordinary iPhone 14, but has a significantly bigger 6.7-inch display, making it a more accessible alternative of the more costly and premium iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Below, you’ll find a summary of everything there is to know about the iPhone 14 series!

As traditionally doesn’t disclose battery sizes, but these were quickly unraveled after the phones hit the shelves. 

As you can see, it’s a toss-up between the iPhone 14 Plus and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The data from four camera sensor pixels will be used together to capture much more detail and less noise, at the expense of lower output image resolution. The FaceTime camera on all models has scored faster aperture and auto-focusing.
