Both models have the same Retina XDR OLED display with True Tone, Haptic Touch, and a maximum brightness of 1200 nits.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are also equipped with the Ceramic Shield front shell and are protected from water and dust.

Specs

Camera

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus also feature a new dual camera system. In addition to the ultrawide camera, the 12-megapixel front camera features a new larger sensor with f/1.5 aperture and 1.9-micron pixels) to capture light and produce better images with more detail and less noise, especially in low-light environments. Apple claims these enhancements improve low-light photography by 49% over the previous generation. Night mode is now twice as fast. In the front, there is a new 12MP front camera (f / 1.9 aperture) with autofocus. The True Tone flash has also been improved and now ensures 10% more brightness.

Apple says it has applied Deep Fusion image processing to the early stages of image shooting, improving low-light performance and color rendition, and calls this the “Photonic Engine” technology. Video recording also receives a new stabilization mode, called Action Mode, which uses the entire sensor for gimbal-like stability.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus can connect to satellite networks with the Emergency SOS function for emergencies where normal cell towers are not reachable. When you send messages using the new function, they are displayed in gray within the Messages app.

Apple says it can take less than 15 seconds to send a message with a clear view of the sky. You can also use the Find My app to share your location without sending a message. The service is free for two years with the purchase of the iPhone 14 models.
