iPhone 14 Plus
In September 2022, Apple CEO Tim Cook was on-stage in Cupertino (California) once again to announce the latest Apple products, which this time included two sizes of a new iPhone 14 and two models of a new iPhone 14 Pro. This latest Apple Event was held in the now familiar Steve Jobs Theatre, in front of a live audience for the first time since the Covid pandemic restrictions had been eased. Tim Cook was live on stage, but the content of the presentation was totally pre-recorded. The iPhone 14 Plus with its 6.7-inch screen was a (larger) replacement for the iPhone 13 Mini, and the smaller iPhone 14 with a 6.1-inch screen directly replaced the iPhone 13.
In terms of appearance, there were few surprises; the iPhone 14 Plus looked very like its predecessor (apart from size), and had a very similar functionality in many ways. It came with the Apple A15 Bionic chip, although this new version came complete with the extra GPU core that had been featured on the higher models of iPhone 13. There were some points of difference though in terms of changes to the camera system, battery life, and an extremely useful capacity for making emergency calls via satellite – a comforting proposition in areas prone to severe weather events and in potential conflict situations.
The iPhone 13 featured a dual 12 MP camera array, with wide and ultra-wide-angle lenses. The iPhone 14 Plus had the same features, but with an increased sensor size and higher aperture speeds. These changes were claimed to offer a near 50% improvement in low light image quality. Further changes were the addition of ‘Action Mode’ for increased video stabilisation, and the replacement of iPhone 13’s Deep Fusion photography system with a new Photonic Engine for better colour and increased detail in still images.
From a battery life perspective, Apple claimed that at 19 hours, the iPhone 14 Plus delivered the best battery life of any iPhone to date.

It is impossible to overstate how much we have come to rely on our smartphones. They are involved in so many aspects of our day to day lives at work, at home and during our leisure time. This pocket-sized computer is capable of so many smart functions, apart from simply making calls and sending texts and messages. Your iPhone can wake you up and keep you on time for appointments, monitor your health and exercise regime, remind you of things you may have forgotten, give you games to play to pass the time and be a constant source of information, news and weather forecasts. One new aspect introduced with the iPhone 14 series was an emergency call via satellite capability – what a great feature, given increasingly extreme weather events and the threat of conflict in all its forms.
