The iPhone 14 boasts a 6.1-inch XDR display with a maximum brightness of 1200 nits and a durable Ceramic Shield. Additionally, it features a 12-megapixel front-facing camera with a 49% improvement in low-light performance. Alongside the standard model, Apple has introduced the iPhone 14 Plus, offering a larger display. Interestingly, both models share the same A15 Bionic chip as last year’s iPhone 13 Pros, but with thermal optimizations. This essentially makes them akin to a 13 Pro in a new 14-body, providing an upgraded experience for less.
Furthermore, the iPhone 14 Pros are equipped with an additional telephoto lens, which the standard iPhone 14 lacks. The Pro’s display is even more impressive, boasting 1600 nits with a peak brightness of 2000 nits. Moreover, the display now supports an always-on feature. Significantly, the new A16 Bionic chip powers the Pro models, enabling them to shoot 48-megapixel RAW photos and offering a new action mode to stabilize videos. The camera system has also seen improvements, with up to 3x better low light performance on the ultra-wide camera, a new 2x telephoto option, and a dynamic feature that transforms the cutout into a useful tool for notifications and content control. Notably, only the iPhone 14 Pro models will feature the Dynamic Island, while the standard iPhone 14 retains the notch.
Currently, I am testing both the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the iPhone 14 outdoors. I plan to take various photos and videos, particularly focusing on the action mode. Spoiler alert: I’ve already tested it and am incredibly impressed by its capabilities. The difference in performance and features between the two models is quite remarkable.
This year, the iPhone 14 series received a notable upgrade in its video capabilities. Users can now shoot in 4K resolution at both 24 and 30 frames per second. Previously, the option was limited to 1080p, and it was not possible to change the frame rate to 24 frames per second. This enhancement is particularly exciting as it makes the cinematic mode more versatile and, indeed, more cinematic.
On the standard iPhone 14, the cinematic mode is available with just one lens option. However, the iPhone 14 Pro Max offers more flexibility, allowing users to shoot in cinematic mode using both the 1X and 3X lenses. This added functionality on the Pro Max model enhances the video shooting experience, providing users with more creative control and options for their video content.
