ihone13 vs Apple iPhone 14
We have got iPhone 13 already available in the market. Meanwhile, Apple has announced its upcoming iPhone 14 series. Now everyone is trying to find out where iPhone 14 stands out from iPhone 13 and where it has similarities. Rumors and leaks say iPhone 14 series may have the more or less same price tag as iPhone 13 series did. Rumors say Apple is not going for major updates this time, in 2022. If Apple pastes a higher price tag on iPhone 14, certainly it won’t be too much than the iPhone 13 series, an educated guess, of course.
So, if you think of upgrading, our article will greatly help you regarding the following point.

With more or less the same Design on base models, design updates are noticeable only in the “Pro Models”.
So, let’s list down the main similarities and dissimilarities of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14.
- As per rumors, iPhone 14 series may sport a faster and higher RAM option.
- Pro models in iPhone 14 may have updates in “wide & ultra wide” and front-facing cameras.
- Pro models in iPhone 14 series may have a larger battery
- Pro models in iPhone 14 series may have a larger, brighter, and high-end display screen.
Display and Design: iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14
Leaks say the base models of both the series have almost no difference, “dual lenses” at the rear, 6.1 inches OLED screen, and that “familiar” small notch at the front.
But, there are major updates that are rumored to get reflected in the “Pro” models of the iPhone 14 series. The iPhone 14 Pro models (iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max) will discard the famous “notch” at the front. Apple will introduce two “punch-holes”, a round-shaped and a pill-shaped, in the “Pro Models”, say the leaks. Also, it is expected that iPhone 14 will have a “Glass” front and back with an aluminium frame body. Also, rumor says the camera bump will be a bit larger at the rear to hold the “big” primary lens.
Apple iPhone 14 series is expected to be more colourful than iPhone 13 series. Except for the usual black, silver, and blue shades, red and purple may be waiting for us.
Also, rumors say Apple may finally introduce a “USB-C” port in iPhone 14 series.
iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14: The Price Tag :
We expect iPhone 14 series will be a bit more costly, depending upon the rumors and leaks.
The very base model of the iPhone 14 series may start at $799, nearly as same as iPhone 13 series. The iPhone 14 Max, rumored to replace the “mini” model, may start at $899.
The pro models in the iPhone 14 series, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max may start at $1099 and $1199, respectively. However, this is our guess, depending upon the leaks. Even a rumor says both the pro models of the iPhone 14 series may cost $100 extra.
iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14: performance and Software factors:

As per “Digitimes”, we can say iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 regular will be using the same A15 Bionic chip as its predecessor, iPhone 13, did. iPhone 14 is not offering us an upgraded chip for the two base models.
But, two pro models, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, are tipped to have a new chip, probably the new rumored A16 Bionic. This is what “Digitimes” expects. Also, in the same article, Digitimes says “TSMC”, Apple’s partner, is experimenting with a new 5 mm “N4P” process, expected to offer a nearly 11% performance hike and 22% power-efficiency boost. So, we are expecting the “Pro” Models will be using either “A16 Bionic” or an upgraded “A15 Bionic”. In either case, the iPhone 14 “Pro” models are going to beat any “Android Smartphone” marketed so far.
iPhone 13 vs iPhone 14: Camera features:

Here comes the good news for us. Apple is going to offer us a 48MP resolution “wide” angle main sensor, says the Apple analyst Min-Chi-Kuo. He says it will be a big Jump for Apple as iPhone 13 got a 12MP resolution main sensor. Even with this huge 48MP sensor, Samsung’s Galaxy S21 Ultra still gets the edge over iPhone 14 for the S21’s 108MP main sensor. Though experts say, image quality depends upon many more factors than megapixels only.
But, only the “Pro” models, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, in iPhone 14 series will get the “48” MP resolution main sensor, while the base model will sport the 12MP resolution main sensor like iPhone 13 series.
Also, leaks say Apple will update the “front-facing” comers too. The iPhone 14’s “Selfie” camera will have two new upgraded features, “Auto-Focus” and “Wide-Aperture”. Indeed, this is good news for the “Selfie” lovers.
iPhone 14 series: RAM upgrades in “Base Model” and probably “Promotion Display” in Pro Models

Apple analyst “Jeff Pu” has claimed that two base models, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, will have 6GB of RAM. It is an upgrade compared to the iPhone 13 series, as the base models of the iPhone 13 got 4GB of RAM. But, “Pro” models in iPhone 14 series have the same “RAM” strength as the iPhone 13 Pro models.
“Jeff Pu” has also said the “Pro Models”, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will have a “Promotion” display. If “Jeff” is right about his claim, we will have a 120Hz refresh rate in “Pro” models.
“Jeff Pu” also hopes to get 256GB of storage capacity in iPhone 14 “Pro” models. It is certainly an increase over the iPhone 13 series. Though, “Jeff,” says iPhone 14 base models may have only 64GB storage. Now, in support of “Jeff’s claim,”. We can say “TrendForce”, a Taiwanese research firm, and analyst Mr. “Ming-Chi-Kuo” are also expecting the same about the “Storage Capacity” issue.
Relevantly, we must say “Jeff Pu” does not have much sound track record in predicting “iPhone” rumors, but Mr. “Ming-Chi-Kuo” does.
We have tried to portray the changes that iPhone 14 series may expect. But, depending upon the rumors only, it is very hard to draw a precise line. Apple is very good at keeping secrets. So, we better wait a couple of months to get a clear picture until the iPhone 14 series starts hitting the shelves at the shops.
