It seems that in the past year, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has second most popular of all its siblings despite being the most valued. Now, Apple is targeting people who want a bigger screen but don’t need (or don’t want to pay for) all the premium features of the Pro models. The new one iPhone 14 Plus clearly a price cut, aimed at enticing iPhone buyers and upgraders to spend a little more than they could otherwise have. Android phones with screens larger than 5.5 inches now occupy more than 50 percent market share in some countries, so it makes perfect sense for Apple to lower the price for a large phone. This is one of the ways that Apple has fallen behind the Android world, making a comeback as far as iPhone 5.
iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus prices in India
Apple has launched iPhone 14″ in same price as iPhone 13″ (Review) last year, this was unusual because iPhone 14 Pro brothers have become more expensive and other model There have also been price adjustments due to changes in international exchange rates. You will have to pay Rs. 79,900 for 128GB of storage, Rs. 89,900 for 256GB or Rs. 1,09,900 for 512GB. The iPhone 14 Plus is priced at Rs. Add 10,000 for each tier, so the price follows the same pattern: Rs. 89,900, Rs. 99,900 and Rs. 1.19,900 respectively.
Have there is no alternative give iPhone 13 mini, but because not much has changed between generations and the fact that it has been discounted, it still serves the same target audience. iPhones typically receive software updates for more than 5 years, and in this way, low-end buyers and those who just want something small because they are used to older phones are still satisfied.
iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus: What’s New?
We’re at a point where there’s nothing smartphone manufacturers can do to make them feel new and exciting. The iPhone 14 is a competent iteration of the iPhone 13, but it doesn’t create any new points and won’t cause anyone to rush out to buy. On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Plus represents a brand new product, and if you can afford it, you might be tempted to upgrade.
The most appealing feature of the iPhone 14 Plus for me is the fact that it is quite a bit lighter than iPhone 14 Pro Max, at 203g versus 240g. If you are stalled somehow cumbersome and difficult to use top models, you might find this new option a pleasant midpoint. The iPhone 14 continues to be one of the lightest devices in its class and easy to hold.
What’s also interesting is that the iPhone 14 Plus promises the best battery life of any iPhone ever. It can outperform its high-end brethren in this respect thanks to its less demanding display and other hardware.
The camera system is improved, with a larger sensor and f/1.5 aperture for the new 12-megapixel main camera. The biggest news is that the front camera now supports autofocus so you can get more creative with your self-portraits. Low-light performance is said to be at least twice better across all cameras, and it’s been great with the iPhone 13 series. Between the camera hardware, the processor, and iOS, there’s a new set of capabilities that don’t come easily. Apple calls it “Photonic Engine”. Essentially, this means that HDR processing, where details from multiple exposures are combined to arrive at the final photo you see, now happens much earlier in the shooting process. and processing. By working on uncompressed data, Apple says focus locks are faster, colors are more realistic, and detail is significantly improved. Action Mode is a new video stabilization option that uses the sensor area outside the frame of what you’re recording and then crops each frame to compensate for motion, achieving results Apple says is possible. compare with using gimbal.
Crash detection is a new feature based on the more advanced gyroscope and accelerometer sensors that all iPhones this generation have. It can detect sudden decelerations and recognize sounds, triggering calls to emergency services and your trusted contacts for help if needed. Satellite-based emergency SMS communication is currently limited to the US and Canada, and also uses Apple hardware and software to locate satellites without the need for bulky antennas. It’s incredibly slow and limited in functionality, but can be a lifesaver if you’re ever stuck without cellular coverage. It will be a paid service, but we don’t know the cost yet and the first two years are free.
The Starlight and Midnight color options continue from last year, and there’s a much brighter Red (Product) option. This year’s new colors are a denim-like light blue and a very translucent lilac.
iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus: What You Don’t Get
Apple feels that last year’s core hardware was still good enough to see the latest iPhones. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus do with the A15 Bionic SoC, although it slightly more capable version that last year’s Pro models had, with an extra GPU core, so there’s still a bit of an upgrade. This marks the first time that Apple has stratified Pro and non-Pro models with completely different SoCs – this could be due to supply chain and manufacturing issues, or it could be a sign that they I’ve actually reached the point where the profit on power CPU for the phone has gradually decreased.
One big disappointment is that the 120Hz ProMotion display feature hasn’t dropped from last year’s Pro models to this year’s iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. Resolution, brightness and color are exactly the same as last year. Of course you don’t get Exciting new Dynamic Island function or the display is always on. Apple has also reserved a 48-megapixel main camera sensor and second-generation sensor-shift stabilization for the high-end models.
In the US, you won’t get a SIM tray at all because Apple will now all in eSIM. This is not necessarily a good thing, but it is likely that Android manufacturers will follow suit. Apart from being a bit thicker, the physical design of the iPhone 14 is quite similar to the iPhone 13 with a glass back, Ceramic Shield front, and aluminum frame. There are no new claims for durability, no improvements to MagSafe or wired charging speeds, and no USB Type-C port.
The iPhone 14 Plus will probably sell well just because it’s a larger iPhone and isn’t as expensive as the Pro Max models. Even so, the vanilla iPhone 14 is likely to have a smaller audience largely because it doesn’t offer anything significantly new.
