Apple introduced the long-awaited iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus yesterday at Apple’s annual fall product showcase. The two new phones follow in the footsteps of last year’s iPhone 13, which featured an edge-to-edge “Oasis” display and facial recognition technology. While both phones are similar in design to their predecessors, they include several important changes that make them worth considering as your next smartphone purchase. Let’s take a look at what makes these new devices so special.
The much-anticipated iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus were finally announced yesterday at Apple’s annual fall product showcase.
The smaller model, the iPhone 14, is a bit more compact than previous models and features a fingerprint scanner on the side rather than on the bottom. The larger model, the iPhone 14 Plus, is also thinner than previous iPhones but has a slightly larger 5G face.
Both phones have new cameras that have been touted to be “the best in class.” Additionally, both phones come with built-in 5G service (last year’s model did not).
With both new phones, Apple has made some important changes to a classic design.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are the same size as previous iPhones. They both have the same 6.2-inch screens, whereas the iPhone 12 had a 5.8-inch display and Apple’s previous phone, the iPhone 13, had a 6.5-inch screen.
The fingerprint scanner has been moved to the side of both phones – this helps prevent you from accidentally pressing it when holding your phone in landscape mode (the orientation used for watching videos). It also means that you can use Face ID for unlocking your device without having to move your hand so much.
Apple has improved its chips with faster processing speeds and better graphics processing power with A15 Bionic chips inside both new models of smartphone; so you get faster performance with everything from gaming to photo editing or video streaming online without compromising on battery life too much either!
While the smaller iPhone 14 is available in three colors — green, blue and white — customers can select from four colors for the larger iPhone 14 Plus, including yellow.
The devices will be available in 64GB and 256GB storage options at launch, with Apple not offering a 512GB version like it did last year with its other iPhones.
The new phones are arriving just before Amazon’s annual Prime Day on July 15th, which may mean they will be discounted by retailers to make way for deals on Amazon’s own devices and services that day.
The fingerprint scanner has been moved to the side of both phones, which is where many Android phones have placed their fingerprint scanners for years now.
This was a big surprise considering that Apple had made such a big deal out of the front-facing scanner on their previous iPhone models.
With this move, Apple has finally caught up with its competition in terms of design and functionality. It’s good to see that they’re willing to listen to consumers and make changes based on what people want from smartphones these days!
Overall, the new iPhones are a welcome addition to the lineup. They have all of the classic iPhone design elements we’ve come to love over the years, but they also offer some exciting new features like rear cameras that can shoot in low light and an improved battery life that should last you through most days without needing to recharge. If you’re looking for a reliable phone with enough power to last throughout the year then these two phones could be just what you’re looking for!
