Tracking iPhone 14 series news, updates, bugs, issues and problems

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’.

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).

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.
