Apple has officially launched 2022 iPhone models worldwide. The new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro models have a few things in common while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models do not have some of the features the Pro versions boast. Read on to know what’s new in these new 2022 iPhones and which iPhone suits you best.
iPhone 14 India Pre-order Date Info

Differences between Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
Apart from the screen size, and battery backup, both of these models have identical specs. These models are available in 4 different color options – Space Black, Silver, Gold, and Deep Purple. The base model comes with 128GB of storage. You can also get the Pro iPhones in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.
Differences between Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Plus
While the Pro models are powered by the latest and fastest Apple Silicon – Apple A16 Bionic chip, the regular iPhone 14 / 14 Plus models come with the last-gen A15 Bionic chip. This shouldn’t be taken as a big con, as the A15 chip is no slouch and can outperform many 2022 Android smartphones currently in the market.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature a Dual Camera system at the back. There is a 12MP Main camera with an F1.5 aperture lens and a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera with an F2.4 aperture lens. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models on the other hand feature a triple camera system at the rear. It has a 48MP main camera with an F1.7 aperture lens along with 12MP ultra-wide-angle and 3x telephoto lenses. These models also offer a 12MP 2x Telephoto option which is achieved by cropping the quad-pixel main sensor camera.
Even though there is a bigger megapixel sensor on board, the new iPhone Pro models do not support 8K video recording like many Samsung flagship smartphones. Both Pro and regular models have support for Cinematic mode up to 4K HDR at 30 fps and Action mode up to 2.8K at 60 fps.
The display is another area where we see a big difference between the iPhone 14 Pro models and regular iPhone Pro 14 / 14 Plus Models. The Pro models feature a Super Retina XDR display with up to 120hz adaptive refresh rate while the regular models also have a Super Retina XDR display, but without the 120hz refresh rate support.
The Pro models now make use of the notch area by introducing a new software feature called which Apple calls Dynamic Island. The regular models use the same old big notch. The Pro model display can achieve a whopping 2,000 nits peak brightness (outdoor) while the base iPhone 14 model display tops out at 1,200 nits peak brightness (HDR) which is still good.
Buying advice – Which iPhone 14 model should I buy?
If you already have an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 model, in my opinion, it is not worth upgrading to the new iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus model. However, the iPhone 14 Pro / 14 Pro Max model is worth the upgrade as it now comes with a newer camera, as well as the new amazing Dynamic Island feature making it stand out from other iPhones Apple has released over the year. The Pro models also have the fastest A16 Bionic chip which is not available on the regular models.
