Apple’s iPhone 14 Series goes offical globally. We already know the specifications ahead of the launch, but this time iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus uses last generation Apple A15 Bionic Chip and iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max uses Apple A16 Bionic Chip. Personally, I don’t like this move from Apple.
Dynamic Island feature is quite interesting. Other products like Apple Watch 8 Series, Apple Watch SE, Apple AirPods Pro 2nd generation also launched along with iPhone 14 Series. Apple Watch Ultra is expensive than iPhone 14.
This time there is no mini but Plus model is back again. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max main rear camera upgraded to 48MP. The cameras looking promising for me.

Worth or not?
The main reason for not launching iPhone 14 mini is people mostly not interested in small size devices. In addition, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max discontinued in India. There is no huge difference between iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 apart from cameras.
No physical SIM card support in the brand new iPhone 14 Series. Apple A16 Bionic Chip 40% better chipset than Snapdragon 8+ Gen1.
There is no huge changes between iPhone 13 Series and iPhone 14 Series. Better to not purchase and save your valuable money and wait for festival season for good offers.
Some cool features and other news
For the satellite communication function, Apple’s official website has a special technical document, there are several details to help you summarize. This feature only supports the iPhone 14 series only available in the United States and Canada, and is expected to be launched in November. Except that the iPhone 14 series of the China and Hong Kong and Macau versions are not supported in hardware, other versions in the United States and Canada support satellite emergency SOS function.
The Corning Glass Magnetic Suction Case released by Bunkers is also a higher-end glass case, which can be called a “diamond armor” mobile phone case. It maintains the original hardness advantage of Corning glass, and also has the advantages of the glass magnetic shell, which can form a good match with various series of Corning Glass Films, showing off the iPhone 14 and at the same time the protection performance is directly full.
iPhone 14 Pro accounts for 85% of China’s orders , which is higher than in previous years. This does not actually mean that the iPhone 14 Series is selling well. On the contrary, it means that sales have declined. Under the epidemic, people who bought iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus in the past cannot afford it, and the number of people has dropped significantly, so the proportion of iPhone 14 Pro has increased significantly.
Android has been using punch holes for several years, but no interaction has been made. When the iPhone 14 Pro came out, it was very cool to see this hole-digging interaction directly. Although it is a very simple thing, it gives people the feeling that Apple’s research and development is still strong, but Android should soon popularize similar interactions.
iPhone 14 is not significantly upgraded compared to the iPhone 13, and the iPhone 14 Plus is not significantly upgraded compared to the iPhone 14. iPhone 14 Plus has a larger screen size, taller, wider, heavier, higher resolution, slightly lower ppi, and better battery than the iPhone 14. Bigger, longer battery life, slower charging time.
Is it necessary to replace iPhone 11 with iPhone 14?
If the budget is sufficient, of course, it is replaced. There is no entanglement. iPhone 14 has many upgrades compared to the iPhone 11, but there is no need to replace the iPhone 13 with the iPhone 14.
If the budget is insufficient, it is not necessary. It is necessary to think about it, iPhone 11 users buy an iPhone 13 experience upgrade, or wait for next year, the iPhone 14 price will be reduced and then start with iPhone 11, such as iPhone XR, if there is a demand for iPhone 14 and you have it yourself money can also be exchanged.
Is it necessary to replace iPhone 13 Pro with iPhone 14 Pro?
If you don’t have a bad money and want to change it, change it directly, don’t worry about it. Because the overall difference between the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro is quite large in terms of processor, image capture, interaction design, etc. The most obvious notch screen has been replaced by a pill screen, and there is a fun Dynamic Island function.
If you are right about the price sensitive, there is no need to replace the iPhone 13 Pro with the iPhone 14 Pro. The basic performance experience can still meet the needs of many people, but the battery life is slightly worse because the upgrade rate of iPhone 14 is too small, there is not a big gap with iPhone 13, and of course there will not be a big gap, it is still 60Hz refresh rate and dual cameras.
Selection criteria compared with the users who choose the Pro version, users of the iPhone version are more concerned about the price, and prefer practicality and economy. From these perspectives, even if some people are recommended, they will not switch to.
The Apple’s strategy on iPhone 14 Series and my opinion
Apple’s product positioning strategy. Hardware and functions further widen the gap between the standard version and the Pro version. For example, the standard version of the iPhone 14 series uses the A15 processor, while the iPhone 14 Pro series uses the A16 processor. Apple encourages more users to replace the more expensive Pro series models. In order to obtain higher profit returns.
The decisive factor that affects the final order of consumers is the size of the budget. In the end, when it comes to spending money to place an order, if you want more money, buy a good one, and if you have less money, buy a standard version. If you are nervous, continue to use what you have, and then change it when you make money.
iPhone 14 Series vs Huawei Mate 50 Series, which one is best?
In recent years, many offline consumers choose Huawei when buying flagship phones. These two series can be said to overlap and differentiate in audience. Many girls prefer Apple, while many boys will be more inclined to Huawei.
In general, Apple has 5G, and there is no breakthrough overall, but it is practical to use. Huawei has a lower starting price and the experience is also good. Of these two series, I prefer three models, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and Huawei Mate 50 Pro.
The main thing in the launch event is two, Dynamic Island and an upgraded imaging system. Dynamic Island currently needs third-party software adaptation, and the “island” part will even conflict with many current third-party apps. After subsequent adaptation, Smart Island can be used as a new “carved on shit” function.
The upgraded imaging system is what I think is the least Apple. One is the 48MP main camera, which has more restrictions on opening. Most ordinary users who get mobile phones may not be able to do it in the life cycle of the iPhone 14 Pro series. After opening this and turning on the ProRaw 48MP, the 128G storage option is also stretched. The sports mode has cropping, which requires high light. The highlight is the 2X cropped by the main camera. Finally, you don’t have to endure the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s 12MP main camera cropping when the light is not good. In general, there are really not many highlights this time, but it does not affect sales.
