Here’s how the new iPhone 14 Pro lineup compares to its predecessors. This Specs Appeal article lets you see the differences and specs of the iPhone 14 Pro, 13 Pro, and 12 Pro side-by-side with their Max variants.

Unlike the iPhone 14, which can only offer a larger Plus model for those planning to upgrade from the iPhone 13 or 12, the Pro line has bigger and more exciting changes this year. Apple ditched the notch for the first time since the iPhone X, giving buyers something called “Dynamic Island” – a pill-shaped cutout that integrates into the operating system providing additional information, whimsical animations and practical gestures. Additionally, the iPhone 14 Pro series has an eye-searing display that can peak at 2000 nits of brightness outdoors and reduce its refresh rate from 120Hz to 1Hz for the always-on feature.

Dynamic Island in iPhone 14 Pro

Cameras are another area where the iPhone 14 Pro lineup features significant changes. Apple has gone with a 48-megapixel main camera, ditching the good old 12-megapixel array it’s been using since the iPhone 6S. Also, a new flash made up of 9 LEDs makes it possible to adapt to the scene.

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max side by side

Another notable feature of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max is satellite communication which allows you to send an emergency SOS. And if you end up in a car crash, new sensors will detect the change in air pressure due to airbag deployment and up to 256G of acceleration. Like the Apple Watch and its fall detection system, the iPhone 14 Pro series can notify emergency services and contacts once a car crash is detected.

Finally, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are equipped with the next-generation Apple A16 processor. It retains the previous 6-core CPU and 5-core GPU configuration, but the raw performance has increased by around 25%.

Here are the main changes summarized in a list:

  • Significantly brighter screen with up to 2000 nits outdoors.
  • A reworked pill-shaped notch called “Dynamic Island”.
  • The new A16 Bionic processor.
  • Significantly improved camera with a 48MP main sensor, second-generation sensor-shift stabilization, photonics engine and adaptive flash.
  • Action mode for video with gimbal-style stabilization.
  • Improved front camera with wider aperture and 4K HDR video support.
  • Bluetooth 5.3, emergency SOS via satellite and car accident detection.
  • eSIM only (only in the United States).
  • Significantly better battery life.
  • New colors.

Is it worth the upgrade? https://knightbilham.com/is-it-worth-the-upgrade/ Sat, 17 Sep 2022 03:26:00 +0000 https://knightbilham.com/is-it-worth-the-upgrade/ The hype around a new generation of iPhones seems unlikely to die down anytime soon, and people everywhere are always eager to see what Apple has in store for them.

The hype around a new generation of iPhones seems unlikely to die down anytime soon, and people everywhere are always eager to see what Apple has in store for them. If you’re wondering if you should upgrade from your old iPhone or want to buy a new phone, you’ve come to the right place.

So, read on for an in-depth comparison between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 to find out if the new one is worth the price.


Price

The iPhone 14 starts at $799 for the 128GB storage variant. No surprise there, as the iPhone 14 sells for the same price as its predecessor when it launched. However, it is worth mentioning that the price of iPhone 13 has now dropped to $699 after the launch of iPhone 14.

Luckily, the standard iPhone 13 is still available on the Apple Store, as the company only discontinued the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models. So what do you get for the extra hundred dollars? Well, let’s find out below.

Design and colors

The iPhone 14 is available in five colors: Midnight, Starlight, Blue, (Product) Red and an all-new Purple. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 has six color options, including Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Pink, Green, and (Product) Red.

Midnight and Starlight are the only two colors you’ll find both models in, as the Blue and (Product) Red variants of the iPhone 14 are deeper and darker than those of the iPhone 13. you decide? We can help you choose the best iPhone 14 color for you.

There’s surprisingly not much to say when it comes to design differences. The new iPhone 14 looks almost exactly like the iPhone 13. Both models sport a ceramic front and an aluminum body with a glossy back. The rear cameras are positioned the same and the notch remains the same size.

However, it should be noted that the iPhone 14 is barely an inch thicker than its predecessor. Despite the slight increase in depth, the iPhone 14 is quite a bit lighter than the iPhone 13. However, in essence, these minor differences don’t amount to much and are mostly insignificant when weighed together. compared to others.

One significant difference you will see is the absence of SIM trays in the iPhone 14, as the new generation no longer supports physical SIM cards and only supports dual eSIM.

Display

Once again, Apple stuck steadfastly to the previous model. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 have identical 6.1-inch OLED displays, with HDR support, 800 nits peak brightness and 1,200 nits peak brightness. There have been absolutely no changes, so the iPhone 14 display will look exactly like the iPhone 13.

On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Pro has the new Dynamic Island instead of the notch, and that’s all everyone keeps raving about.

Processor

It’s a tradition for Apple to release new iPhones with a new chipset, so you can imagine what a shock it was to users when it announced that the iPhone 14 would feature the same A15 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 13 series. , adding to the list of reasons why you should skip the iPhone 14.

However, the A15 chip in the iPhone 13 is not the same as the iPhone 14, as the latter contains the A15 found in the iPhone 13 Pro models, which comparatively has a graphical increase of approximately 20% thanks to the 5-core GPU. inside.

Camera

The camera department is where the iPhone 14 gets incremental upgrades. To the naked eye, you’ll see that both models have the same Dual 12MP camera system, with a diagonally placed primary and ultra-wide lens. However, let’s discuss what has changed:

There’s a slight difference in the standard primary lens apertures, with the iPhone 14 sporting an ƒ/1.5 just like the iPhone 13 Pro models from 2021. Not sure what that means? It’s quite easy. The lower the f-stop, the more light enters the camera lens, which means the iPhone 14 lets in slightly more light than the iPhone 13.

All of these hardware improvements, combined with the all-new Photonics Engine, contribute to more detail and improved low-light performance and night mode photography.

If we look at the front camera of iPhone 14, it has a smaller aperture (ƒ.1.6 compared to ƒ/2.2 of iPhone 13). It also has an autofocus feature, just like the more expensive iPhone 14 Pro models, which should add some depth to your selfies.

Along with all the software features introduced with the iPhone 13, such as Photographic Styles, Smart HDR 4, Cinematic Mode, and more, the iPhone 14 gets a new Action Mode to add much better stabilization to videos with a bit of cropping.

Battery life and storage

The iPhone 14 gets minor battery life improvements, delivering up to 20 hours of video playback, 16 hours of video streaming, and 80 hours of audio playback. On the other hand, iPhone 13 has up to 19 hours of video playback, 15 hours of video streaming, and 75 hours of audio playback. The iPhone 14’s battery size is also slightly larger to deliver those numbers.

Fortunately, the charging speed remains the same, as Apple claims up to 50% charge in 30 minutes with a 20W or higher adapter for the iPhone 13 and 14. Both models also support MagSafe charging, and they come in three storage options: 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.

Is the new iPhone 14 worth your money?

Identical designs, screens, processors and cameras will have you wondering if the iPhone 14 is worth taking a dent in your bank account. All the upgrades seem to have been directed to the iPhone 14 Pro models, whereas the iPhone 14 seems to be mostly a refurbished device.

However, if you are still looking to buy a new iPhone, you should definitely take a look at the larger iPhone 14 Plus or iPhone 14 Pro models.

The iPhone 14 series has been trending for many weeks. After all, this is the first time in a long time that they’ve received a noticeable change to their front design.

Now the whole family of smartphones is official and consists of 4 members. Apple released the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max (the company discontinued the “Mini” variant this year) on September 7.

Although one of the main novelties of the series is the redesign of the notch, not all models boast of it. Only the ‘Pro’ and ‘Pro Max’ variants include the new ‘Dynamic Island’.

Source

Continuing the redesign of the notch, it is now a kind of “pill” that takes its place. The “Dynamic Island” (as Apple calls it) not only changes the shape, but adds functionality to this area.

First, the pill will shrink or grow depending on the context and running apps. This area will become a kind of “extension” of certain applications, offering information and allowing you to open them from there.

On the other hand, the iPhone 14 “vanilla” and “Plus” retain the traditional notch. Another thing the ‘non-Pro’ models retain is a 60Hz screen, reserving 120Hz for the ‘Pro’ versions.

For the first time in an iPhone generation, not all models implement the same chipset. The “vanilla” and “Plus” variants retain last year’s Bionic A15, but the iPhone 14 Pro introduces the new, more powerful and efficient Bionic A16.

Photography is another area where the iPhone 14 Pro and “non-Pro” models differ. The latter offers a dual camera system consisting of two 12MP sensors (main and ultra-wide).

iphone-14-pro-2

On the other hand, the “Pro” models have a triple camera system controlled by a new 48MP sensor. There’s also a 12MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 12MP telephoto sensor with up to 3x optical zoom.

iPhone 14 series software updates

When it comes to software, new smartphones come with iOS 16 as standard. In addition, all will enjoy very similar software support throughout their lifetime.

We will track all software updates, including security patches and bug fixes, coming across the entire iPhone 14 series in this section.

The Nikon Z6 was effectively discontinued by Nikon Japan, which marked the cameras as “old product” on its official website product page. The “old product” tag is a precursor to moving a product to the “old product” page of Nikon’s website, where discontinued models are listed.

This marks the end of the line for the original Nikon Z6 (opens in a new tab)released in 2018 alongside the original Nikon Z7 (opens in a new tab) – which was similarly removed by Nikon Japan last month, first marked as “old product” shortly before being moved to the “old product” listings page.

Cupertino, California: Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, successors to last year’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, are not what we logically expected. The list of upgrades and new features certainly puts this in the category of an extensive, not incremental, annual upgrade. For starters, Apple finally made a more deliberate differentiation between the iPhone 14 Pro series and the non-Pro iPhone 14 models.

Key changes include a new A16 Bionic chip, while the iPhone 14 series still uses last year’s A15 Bionic, but with improvements, especially to the image signal processor. That means iPhones still have to upgrade to Apple Silicon, the M-series chips that now power iPads and MacBooks, for example.

It’s also the first time the iPhone has moved from the main 12-megapixel camera, which has served its purpose for many years now, to a more up-to-date 14-megapixel camera. There are also more algorithm improvements. Both phones’ screens are the new Super Retina XDRs, 6.1-inches and 6.7-inches respectively.

In terms of footprint and overall shell, the two iPhone 14 Pro models are no different from the iPhone 13 Pro phones they succeed. Even the new 48-megapixel camera finds a new home in similar camera module outlines, like the outgoing 12-megapixel Troika. However, it’s the notch replacing the pill cutout on the front that catches your eye.

Apple calls this island dynamic, because there’s a usable display all around (including the top). This means that the notch, which protruded from the top bezel, is now relegated to non-Pro iPhone 14 models. The way Apple envisions it, and has developed its own apps in iOS 16, is to be able to use this space for active widgets. It will be quick access to background tasks and notifications for example, without having to switch applications each time.

Application developers will play a critical role in preparing their applications to use this dynamic space more effectively. How many will, in the weeks and months to come, remains to be seen. An example of the utility is that while you’re working with other apps while music is playing in the background, just tap on that island to bring up the music controls. Without having to leave the current application. This is an important practical aspect, so all applications can start using it better.

The Always-On Display has been on Android phones for a while now, and is finally making its way to Apple iPhones. Although Apple has a different view. Unlike Android phones which use a dark background with information overlays, iPhones will continue to display a wallpaper in the background. It will be darkened, of course, and if the wallpaper contains a person, the skin tones will probably be retained as well.

The biggest, however, has to be the 48-megapixel camera. It’s been years, and Apple has proven its point with 12-megapixel cameras over the years. We’ve reported on the need for more megapixels for smart software to work with more photo data, and the iPhone 14 Pro models are the first (and only) to get this much-needed upgrade. It is a quad pixel sensor – this means data from a group of 4 pixels is combined into one large pixel.

The photos you end up with will still be 12 megapixels, but there will be more data for the algorithms to work with. One of them is the new Photonic Engine upgrade, which now steps in to start processing images for output, from the uncompressed stage itself. This will likely mean more real data for the final image, in terms of detail and color accuracy.

The iPhone 14 Pro series displays are now on par with the latest generation iPad Pro displays. The maximum outdoor brightness is 2,000 nits, which is significantly more than the last generation Samsung Galaxy phone screens, which exceed around 1,500 nits. The iPhone 13 Pro displays had a 1000 nit cap in similar use cases.

US iPhone 14 models will not have a physical SIM slot. This means eSIMs only. Multiple eSIMs are possible on the same device. Overall, the SIM slots remain, but the clues are there for a possible change.

The iPhone 14 series also benefits from satellite connectivity, for Emergency SOS. This will be useful in situations where users need assistance but are not in the coverage area of ​​a mobile network (and of course, a Wi-Fi network). The phone will tell you which direction to point to a satellite and, once connected, allow users to send a message or connect to a helpline. Messages sent in an emergency will be compressed before sending, in order to reduce the size and therefore the sending time for the transfer.

This service is live in the US and Canada at this time – no word yet on global availability. Two years of subscription come with new iPhones. How much will it cost later will be revealed in due course.

The iPhone 14 series, just like the Apple Watch Series 8, has the collision detection function. The new hardware, which includes a dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements of up to 256G and a new high dynamic range gyroscope, will be able to detect whether the iPhone user has been involved in a car accident. The barometer will detect changes in cabin pressure while GPS data will be used to calculate changes in speed. The iPhone will allow users to manually call for help or automatically notify the authorities.

Apple says the algorithms were trained on 1 million sets of crash data, to understand different crash scenarios and vehicle movements and responses.

Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max go on sale September 14, with pre-orders starting September 9. India, as has been the case for the past few years, is among the first wave of countries where new iPhones will be launched. The iPhone 14 Pro prices start at Rs1,29,900 while the iPhone 14 Pro Max price tags start at Rs1,39,900.

Based on the rumored iPhone 14 Pro specs, it looks like the next-gen iPhone to get – the only question being whether 6.1-inches is enough or you want a bigger 6.7-inch screen inches.

However, we don’t think you should reject the standard iPhone 14 entirely.

As editor and phone expert Philip Michaels explains, “The importance of getting all the valuable things the iPhone 14 promises — great cameras, solid performance, stellar design — without having to pay more for privilege cannot be overstated, especially in a time when prices are exploding all around us.

“The iPhone 14 Pro may have some impressive upgrades, but in this environment, the attractive price of the iPhone 14 might end up being the most compelling feature of all.”

Speaking of options and specs, we’ve put together a specs chart for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max based on the rumors so far.

Except for the screen size and battery, the two phones look very similar. It’s the same as with the 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max, but unlike the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Maxwhich had different camera capabilities.

See the specification list below.

Screen size 6.1 inches 6.7 inches
Refresh rate 1-120Hz 1-120Hz

Colors Purple, green, silver and graphite Purple, green, silver and graphite

But one way for Apple to at least justify a price hike for the iPhone 14 Pro could be a new entry-level storage tier. According to some rumours, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max will start at 256 GB of storage space rather than 128 GB.

However, this increase in iPhone 14 Pro storage was shot down in a report by Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu, who claims that Apple will keep the same storage as with the iPhone 13 Pro, which means stick to 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.

The camera upgrades are great, but one of the disturbing rumors circulating is that the iPhone 14 lineup will be more expensive than the iPhone 13 lineup, with the Pro phones expected to go up by $100.

But market intelligence firm TrendForce (opens in a new tab) predicted that the price hike won’t be too severe, with prices rising by $50 instead. Supposedly, this will be a way for Apple to be more careful with prices when global inflation rises. We don’t know how much we’re buying there, but we’d much rather there wasn’t a price hike at all, especially if the standard iPhone 14 doesn’t change much.

Justin! A new iPhone 14 Pro rumor. This time it’s an image of what’s claimed to be an iPhone 14 Pro case on an iPhone 14 Pro, the big plus being that the next-gen iPhone’s camera lenses could be significantly larger than those of current Pro phones.

What does this mean concretely? Much larger lenses can let in more light and that can mean more detail is captured by a phone’s cameras. With the iPhone 14 Pro already slated to get a 48MP main camera, letting in more light and also improving low-light photography, could see it top our best camera phone list; though we’ll have to put it through some testing before drawing any conclusions.

As for the Apple Watch 8 itself, we don’t expect to see a host of major changes, but a Pro model has been announced.

And from some allegedly leaked case photos, it looks like the Apple Watch 8 Pro will be a very rugged smartwatch that can withstand the elements and rigorous outdoor activities while offering access to a suite of watchOS 9 features. This will likely be thanks to extra buttons and a titanium build by default.

Moving away from iPhones, we expect to see at least two new Apple Watch models on Wednesday. But there is also the Apple Watch SE 2 which could make an appearance.

It would replace the Apple Watch SE, Apple’s cheapest smartwatch, but it could also spell the end of the Apple Watch 3, which is expected to be killed off this week.

If you’re wondering whether you should be ready to buy the iPhone 14 when it launches, or whether you should wait 12 months and get an iPhone 15, then phones writer Richard Priday has chewed up the iPhone 14 against the iPhone 15.

It looks like the iPhone 14 Pro will be the phone to get. But if you’re on an iPhone 13 Pro, you might want to consider waiting because the 2023 iPhone model could bring major changes, such as USB-C connectivity and a periscope camera.

One of the main iPhone 14 rumors is that the standard models will stick with the current A15 processor, but the Pro models will get a new A16 Bionic chip.

However, now we’ve heard a new variation on this theme, which is that the A15 chip in the iPhone 14 will be an upgraded version.

This is according to the Wall Street Journal (opens in a new tab), citing “people familiar with the plans”. There’s no indication how the A15 will be improved, but we assume it would deliver slightly better performance than the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max, which offered an extra GPU core over the iPhone. A15 used in base iPhone. 13 and iPhone 13 mini.

The dual-chip approach is one we’ve heard a lot about already. For example, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also advised the standard iPhone 14s to stick with the A15, while the Pro models get an upgrade.

On the one hand, that would be a disappointment – Apple almost always puts new chips in new phones. But on the other hand, you could say that the A15 Bionic is so powerful that having it in the iPhone 14 won’t be a bad thing anyway. And if the version of the A15 used is more powerful than that of the iPhone 13, there is even less reason to worry about it.

One of the latest rumors to surface ahead of the Apple event is about a battery boost for the iPhone 14 Pro line.

That’s according to well-connected Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who writes in his Power On newsletter. (opens in a new tab) that “beyond the notch, I’m told to expect the iPhone 14 Pro models to appear slightly larger overall and include slimmer bezels. They will also have bigger batteries.

Thinner bezels are nice, but a battery boost could help the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro max earn a spot on our best phone battery life list, replacing the iPhone 13 respectively. Pro Max and the iPhone 13 Pro.

Hello and welcome to our Apple Event Rumors live blog. We’ll be updating this regularly over the next few days and shortly before the event itself, which is due to start at 1pm ET / 10am PT / 6pm BST tomorrow (September 7).

There’s certainly no shortage of late-breaking leaks and speculation surrounding the various devices set to launch tomorrow, so read on for our thoughts on each.

Brutal colonialist practices and white supremacy have suppressed the culture and relationships of black and indigenous communities for centuries, leaving many members of younger generations disconnected from their native languagelineage and double identity.

To strengthen kinship and recognize Black and Indigenous identities, the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI)”The ancestors know who we areThe exhibit affirms how Western norms of isolating identities cannot diminish or silence the unified and candid bond of the Black-Indigenous community.

Anya Montielcurator of the exhibition, brought together the works of six black indigenous women artists who reflect various aspects of intersectionality, the harms of oppression and patriarchal norms and the solidarity between black and indigenous communities in their struggle for liberation collective.

The exhibition presents works of art from a variety of mediums and includes essays by Indigenous Black scholars and activists reflecting on topics such as art in relation to gender and Black and Indigenous identity and futurity – the need to recover stolen land and prevent the alienation of one’s culture to secure a future for black and indigenous communities.

“In the United States, we often talk about black and indigenous peoples as distinct and peripheral groups to white people,” said Fariza Nzinga, research professor-in-residence at Berea College’s Bell Hooks Institute. “This narrow framing ignores shared histories, erases blended families, keeps parents isolated and alienated from each other, and falls into the trap of centering the white experience.”

Moira Pernambucoone of the artists featured, illustrated black and indigenous academic theory through her “Black Boy Beautiful, Black Boy Vulnerable” series of photographs, illustrating the harmful effects of white patriarchal norms on indigenous black men.

Troy by Moira Pernambuco

In the “Troy” photograph, a man is depicted sleeping quietly on a bed with his arms crossed over his eyes, displaying peaceful vulnerability. After targeting police violence and high standards of masculinity, letting our guard down can be dangerous and life-threatening for black men.

Kyle T. Maysan Afro-Indigenous writer and scholar, reflects on this photograph and relates it to his personal experience: “Looking at the photograph of ‘Troy’, it reminds me of being told when I was a young boy that ‘sleep is the cousin of death’… We rarely tell black men to rest and relax, proactively take care of their bodies and minds.’Troy’ reminds us that the act to take care of oneself is, in truth, a masculine act and necessary to the path of resistance.

Pernambuco’s photos resist the patriarchal norms created by white supremacy and seek to document the history of black-indigenous peoples, since their history has been destroyed by colonizers. Pernambuco said in a interview with the NMAI how she doesn’t know who her African ancestors are and therefore affirms the existence of Black-Indigenous people through her art.

The artwork by Pernambuco and others shows the importance and necessity of unity between communities to fight for social justice and liberation from white supremacy. “Ancestors Know Who We Are” shows how, despite history being erased and stolen from Black-Indigenous people, the creators used art to dismantle Western racial definitions and hierarchies while celebrating their multiple identities.

The digital exhibition is visible here.

Apple’s iPhone 14 Max is rumored to be the giant iPhone I’ve always wanted https://knightbilham.com/apples-iphone-14-max-is-rumored-to-be-the-giant-iphone-ive-always-wanted/ Tue, 30 Aug 2022 20:39:00 +0000 https://knightbilham.com/apples-iphone-14-max-is-rumored-to-be-the-giant-iphone-ive-always-wanted/ The 6.7 inch iPhone 13 Pro Maxwith the iPhone 12 Pro Max that preceded it, are the largest iPhone models ever made by Apple.

The 6.7 inch iPhone 13 Pro Maxwith the iPhone 12 Pro Max that preceded it, are the largest iPhone models ever made by Apple. They’re also the most expensive, with the iPhone 13 Pro Max starting at $1,100. But giant phone fans may have something cheaper to look forward to at Apple September 7 event.

Apple could release a iPhone 14 Max for the first time in 2022, according to reports from Nikkei Asian Review and well-connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. Yes, you read that right, an iPhone 14 Max, not to be confused with the expected iPhone 14 Pro Max. We hope to hear more about Apple’s iPhone lineup when it next “Far Out” event on September 7.

Reports suggest that this new 6.7-inch phone will be a larger version of next year’s standard iPhone. A report from 9to5Mac describing Kuo’s research note says we’ll likely see four iPhone models in total: two high-end 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhones; and two low-end 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch iPhones. A source with direct knowledge of the matter speaking with Nikkei also described the new 6.7-inch model as a “relatively cost-effective version of the larger iPhone Pro Max”.

That’s a big deal, because Apple’s oversized iPhones are usually reserved for those willing to pay top dollar for its high-end smartphones. Yes, an iPhone 14 Max will likely be more expensive than the standard iPhone 14. But since it should be positioned as a larger iPhone 14, it probably won’t be as expensive as the successor to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Such a product could help Apple tap into a new market of potential iPhone buyers, possibly including those who have turned to Android to get bigger screens at lower prices.

Apple’s history of launching larger iPhones

Apple knows there is a market for larger phones. It started launching bigger iPhones in 2014 starting with the iPhone 6Plus to better compete with devices like Samsung’s Galaxy Note. Apple continued this pattern until 2021 with the iPhone 13 Pro Maxalthough its overall approach has varied over the years.

The iPhone 6 Plus, for example, was essentially a larger version of the Iphone 6. Other than its larger screen, many technical details were the same, apart from a few minor differences. But in other upgrade cycles, bigger screens have gone hand in hand with more dramatic camera upgrades. For example, Apple introduced Portrait mode on the iPhone 7Plusa dual-camera feature exclusive to the larger phone and unavailable on its smaller sibling.

This latter approach more closely matches Apple’s current iPhone strategy. Again, Apple only offers a larger screen on the model that comes with additional cameras. The difference is that it now offers an intermediate option in the iPhone 13 Pro. This iPhone is cheaper than the Pro Max and includes its triple-lens camera system plus other extras including support for a 120Hz refresh rate. But comes in the same 6.1 size. inches than normal iPhone 13.

The iPhone 14 Max seems like the right middle ground for big-screen phone fans. Just as the iPhone 13 Pro offers a better camera than the iPhone 13 At a lower price than the iPhone 13 Pro Max, the iPhone 14 Max could offer a more spacious screen at a lower price than the next Pro Max.

This could be especially useful for people who want a bigger screen but don’t need the triple-lens camera, lidar sensor, macro photography and other luxury features that define Apple models. iPhone Pro.

Why we love bigger phones

Launch of a iPhone 14 Max would make sense for several reasons. For one, people seem to prefer larger iPhones. Data from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners shows the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max was the top-selling model in Q3 2021, noting that shoppers were avoiding “smaller and older models”. Meanwhile, demand for the iPhone 12 Mini had been weak, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

If you’re wondering why, the answer is simple and probably obvious: we use our phones for almost everything. Americans now spend more time looking at their phones than watching TV, eMarketer reported in 2019. The pandemic has exacerbated our reliance on the internet and, therefore, our smartphones. Screen time among American teens, for example, has more than doubled from pre-pandemic levels, according to a study published in the journal JAMA Pediatrics.

If you spend more time staring at your phone, it makes sense that you would want a bigger screen. Some people — like me — may prefer a bigger screen to a more advanced camera, which makes the sound of an iPhone 14 Max all the more appealing. This is especially true since I don’t own a personal laptop at the moment (I have a desktop computer for personal business and a work laptop for work-related tasks).

This means I use my phone for many daily tasks like reading the news, checking email and paying bills – all things that would be even easier on a bigger device. If I want a phone with a giant screen, my only choice as iPhone the user has to spend $1,100 on the iPhone 13 Pro Max – although I can do just fine with the standard iPhone’s dual-lens camera.

Larger phones can also be cumbersome to use, but there are two reasons why that doesn’t concern me in 2021. For one, I don’t commute to work every day anymore. Actions that would be difficult on a 6.7-inch phone, like quickly checking the time, using it with one hand while I grab the subway pole, or squeezing it in a jacket pocket aren’t really a problem anymore. problem.

I also rely on my apple watch for the above-mentioned tasks when I leave home or go to the office occasionally. My iPhone stays in my pocket or bag until I’m ready to dive into reading material or answer work-related questions.

Android fans, on the other hand, are spoiled for choice when it comes to big-screen phones. And some of them are cheaper than the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The $900 Google Pixel 6 Pro and $1,000 Samsung Galaxy S21 Plus come with 6.7-inch screens for a lower price.

Only Apple knows what 2022 will bring to the iPhone. But hopefully the rumors are true and we’ll see more variety for big screen phone fans. That is to say, at least until the rumor Foldable iPhone arrived.
