iPhone 13 vs.iPhone 14: How Do They Compare?

A recap of the key features of the coveted new iPhone 14

Apple is definitely behind some of the most highly-anticipated tech releases. While at the cutting edge of innovation, Apple products are designed to be accessible, with an appeal that cuts through all types of gadget users. Part of what makes Apple products great, too, is the ecosystem they work in. Each device connects seamlessly with other: from the MacBook to AirPods, and the Apple Watch to the iPhone. And it’s here, playing up this ecosystem of super products, with the tech giant kicks off its next run.

Last September, Apple unveiled the newest series in its roster: iPhone 14. In the post ahead, get a look at the snazzy highlights boasted by iPhone 14, plus a comparative view featuring the previous iPhone 13 series.

A Quick Look at the New iPhone 14

The latest 6.1-inch iPhone 14 has the familiar, durable aluminum and glass build but sports a more vibrant OLED, super retina XDR display, which looks bright even outdoors.

On the arena of smartphone photography, iPhone 14 has a bigger, 12-megapixel with ƒ/1.5 aperture and a larger sensor on the main camera. It comes with a much-improved 12-megapixel selfie camera with ƒ/1.9 aperture and autofocus. All this means is that users get an even more impressive picture quality even in low light conditions.

Internally, iPhone 14 comes with the A15 Bionic chip with 6GB RAM. You won’t have to worry about carrying a power bank with this super smartphone since it has an all-day battery, with up to roughly 20 hours of video playback time.

In addition, iPhone 14 is available in five distinct colors: blue, midnight, starlight, PRODUCT(RED), and a brand-new purple. Besides the standard model, Apple is set to release the larger, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus later in the year, which has longer battery life.

According to Apple, prices for the base model in the iPhone 14 series starts at ₱56,990.

Although iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 share similarities, the new iPhone has notable additions that make it stand out from Apple’s other lineup of devices.

What’s new exactly? Here’s a brief look at the features of the new iPhone 14.

Dynamic island feature

The differences between iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 are more apparent when you compare iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max models with their newer counterparts. For the first time ever in an iPhone, iPhone 14 Pro now sports a hole-punch selfie-camera design (similar to what you’ll find in other GPlan devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 or Huawei P50).

Apple integrated the hardware of the hole-punch display with the iOS experience through what it calls Dynamic Island. It allows you to check alerts or currently active apps such as Spotify or an ongoing timer without needing to jump back into the app.

Improved camera features

iPhone 14 sports a larger camera aperture and sensor for both the main and front-facing cameras. For the first time as well, the front-facing camera now comes with auto-focus, which means selfies are more fuss-free this time around.

Size updates

It’s worth keeping in mind that the bigger camera sensors make the new iPhone a little chunkier, which means your iPhone 13 cases may not give your new phone a snug fit. (Speaking of size differences, if you happen to be a fan of iPhone 13 Mini, note that Apple will not be releasing an iPhone 14 Mini for this round.)

Improved internals

Both iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 smartphones use the same A15 bionic chip, but the newest iteration notably features 6GB of RAM (while iPhone 13 caps this at 4GB). This difference means that iPhone 14’s performance is slightly faster than the previous model.

Car crash detection

The new iPhone 14 has improved internal sensors, accelerometers, and a better gyroscope for car crash detection. In such cases, the new iPhone can automatically contact emergency services for those in an accident.

Photonic engine

The new iPhone camera features new computational photography technology, which Apple calls the Photonic Engine. This allows you to take better photos in low light, making night-time photography crisper, better composed, and easier to navigate.

Emergency SOS Satellite Messaging

iPhone 14 now features emergency SOS via satellite, allowing you to contact emergency services even when you are out of cell tower range. This is an extra handy safety feature if you love hiking, cycling, or taking on hobbies in remote locations.
