iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13: Biggest Rumored Differences

The Apple iPhone 14 is coming soon, and there have been rumors about how many features are identical to the iPhone 13, and not much has been changed. So, you might wonder, what changes can you expect to see on iPhone 14? Is it worth upgrading?

This article will give you an idea of what might be introduced in the new iPhone 14. See if we can answer your question. But, first, let's see what might be some of the differences between the two.

iPhone 14 vs. iPhone 13

-Introduce a new color

-Camera improvement

-Potentially larger storage

-New chip on the pro series

-Faster refresh rate

-Adding a max model

-Price increase

What Does the iPhone 14 Look Like?

We should expect no significant change in the display of the iPhone 14 compared with iPhone 13. However, some “tiny” changes may happen. Apple may replace the notch with pill-shaped cut-outs on the iPhone 14 pro models, while iPhone 14 and the max model will have a similar design to the iPhone 13.

Meanwhile, the camera size is expected to be bigger due to the enhancement of the new camera, which requires a little more space to present it.

On the other hand, while keeping the typical color offered, purple and some new colors may be added for iPhone 14.

Screen-wise, it is expected that both the 14 and the pro model will keep using the OLED screen the previous iPhone 13 used, yet, the refresh rate could be higher than the iPhone 13 model.

What Can We Expect from the iPhone 14 Camera?

Many tech writers assume that the iPhone 14 will adopt the camera from the previous iPhone 13 Pro model. But it is unlikely that the iPhone 14 will adopt a three-lens camera since it distinguishes it from the Pro models. Moreover, we do expect the iPhone 14 will have an improvement in image quality.

Rumors have said that iPhone 14 Pro's camera will have the most considerable improvement in iPhone history. With an improvement in sensors from 12 mg to 48 mg, it is replacing the 4k recording with 8k. In addition, the new auto-focus component will be added to the front camera of both the entry-level iPhone 14 and the pro models.

iPhone has been using the 12mp camera for the last few generations. If the iPhone 14 Pro's camera happened to adopt a 48 mg sensor, this would be a significant change in iPhone history. For those with camera needs, this could be a jackpot that interests you.

What’s the iPhone 14 Battery Capacity?

iPhone 13 had a big jump in battery size from iPhone 12, up 14.6% in battery capacity. It is uncertain whether iPhone 14 will still show a significant change in battery size. Nonetheless, it shouldn't be surprising if the iPhone 14 continues to have battery improvement. Would it be a massive upgrade? We will find out on the iPhone 14 release date.

History of iPhone battery sizes:

  • iPhone 14: unknown
  • iPhone 13: 3,227 mAh (+14.6% from previous model)
  • iPhone 12: 2,815 mAh (-9.4% from previous model)
  • iPhone 11: 3,110 mAh (+5.7% from previous model)

Charging speed will likely stay the same: 20W charging through a cable and up to 15W using MagSafe Charger.

How Well Will the iPhone 14 Perform?

If the camera rumor is all said to be accurate, then the iPhone 14 pro will likely implement the brand new A16 chip to process the 48mp camera. Since a big jump from 12mp to 48mp means that the iPhone 14 pro will need a better chip to process images at a very high resolution, or else it would be frustrating to see lagging.

What are the differences between A5 and A6?

According to Kuo, the A16 chip will be manufactured in TSMC’s third-generation 5-nanometer process node called N4P. 

N4P is said to have an 11% performance hike and 22% power efficiency improvement compared to the N5 process node used on the A14 Bionic. However, the first and second-generation 5nm manufacturing processes have not drastically improved. Therefore, expectations for the N4P shouldn't be very high due to its manufacturing barrier. 

Overall, A16 will have improvement from A15, but crazy improvement isn't realistic.

How Much is the iPhone 14?

One rumor is that Apple will take out iPhone 13 mini model and replace it with the iPhone 14 max, which costs 200$ more than the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

What could be the potential price starting rate for iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro?

Looking back at the previous iPhone starting price, the starting price increased from 50$ to 100$. It is expected that the price of the iPhone 14 will have a starting price range from 799$ to 899$. While the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to start at 999$, the price may increase within the range of 100$.
