Apple iPhone 14 Pro There aren’t many phones that command the same level of global attention as the iPhone does. The iPhone 14 series was launched on September 7th, 2022. Does the Apple iPhone 14 go for a big leap forward? Or is it just another incremental update? Let’s find out.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are high-end smartphones designed and marketed by Apple Inc. They are the sixteenth generation flagship iPhones, succeeding the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro Full Specifications
Design and Build Quality
This year, the iPhone has scrapped its mini lineup as leaks and rumors suggested. Instead, users got a Plus variant of the device which has a similar dimension to the Pro Max with the internals of the 14.
Coming back to the iPhone 14, the design and build quality remains exactly the same here. Dimension-wise, the device is about 0.1 mm thicker than the iPhone 13 at 7.8 mm thickness. The change is almost impossible to notice in day-to-day use. And while this might feel like a design stagnation, there is more to it than the obvious.
We spoke about how high-end ultra tech is coming at a saturation point and how it’s impossible to introduce breakthrough features in every generation.
The iPhone 13 series was the pinnacle of technology last year. And even though we have moved a year forward, the design and the internals are still relevant by 2022 standards.
Users will be getting the exact same external ports and button selection on the iPhone 14. However, the USA variant of the device has introduced a dual e-sim option. Meaning there won’t be any physical sim slot on the USA variant of the device.
Other region-specific models will feature physical sim slots with the Chinese variant featuring a dual nano sim option instead of the e-sim.
Overall, the iPhone 14 brings nothing new on the hardware end of things. And while it might sound boring, it is not necessarily a bad thing. Why fix something that isn’t broken?
