iPhone 14 Series – A Giant Step For Apple & Its Worshippers
Gone are the days when a flagship or a truly market-defining phone would cost you somewhere between 50,000 to 60,000. Those were before the markets touched upon inflation and the rates were soon dumbed down by Apple’s iPhone models that went way beyond up to 1 lakh and even more. Those were times that were truly unbelievable if we were to ask a quote from those who have been following the company’s rise in the tech and mobile industry since the early 2010s. But with the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max in sight – everybody is well accustomed to the Apple drill. We’re now an audience that is ready to pay almost 2 lakh rupees for a single iPhone and that’s where the magic has truly become a race run too far. Now with a staggering price point, Apple has introduced the basics people have been crying out for too long.
Read – What Makes iPhone Cameras Unique? Understanding The Science Behind iPhone’s DSLR Cameras
A sturdy and almost-unbreakable ultra-strong iPhone, bigger in size, in compatibility, and with a larger battery life than ever before. Well these are some of the very basic add-ons that were expected after years of innovation and minting money but the focus still lays on what lies inside.
The iPhone – apart from new gimmicky iPhone 14 Pro features like the dynamic island – has been innovated in multiple other ways with the introduction of the iPhone 14 series. But here our focus is on the camera. So let’s start by analysing the 3 variants – we skipped the iPhone 14 Plus for the next time – and their basic camera setups.
Basic Camera Setup
iPhone 14 Camera
The new iPhone 14 camera has a similar design to the iPhone 13 camera but come with a slighter bigger size of lenses. The main camera here gets a much larger 12 megapixel image sensor with 1.9micron of pixel size, f/1.5 aperture, and Sensor shift stabilisation. The image sensor may look and feel familiar because it is the same image sensor from the iPhone 13 Pro last year.
Ultrawide Camera – the iPhone 14 gets the same 12 megapixel sensor with f/2.4 aperture and 13mm lens, which is the same as the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
One thing can be deduced from the iPhone 14 camera setup that Apple wants to keep macro, telephoto and LiDAR just for the Pro iPhone models as of now.
Selfie Camera – now talking about the selfie or front-facing camera, the iPhone 14 gets an upgrade on the selfie camera. The 12 megapixel camera comes with a 23mm lens and f/1.9 aperture. The selfie camera also comes with a depth and biometrics camera that is used for unlocking your iPhone via the Face ID feature.
The focus is not focused and that allows for a sharper and crisper selfie when there are multiple people involved. Therefore this time it is not about the iPhone 14 megapixels but the quality of photos getting better with lesser noise in the overall picture.
iPhone 14 Pro Camera
Wide Camera – the iPhone 14 Pro camera sensor gets an upgrade from the iPhone 13 Pro model last year and the main camera gets even better with a 48 megapixels setup with f/1.8 aperture and 24mm wide lens. It comes with the other 2 cameras with 12 megapixels and 12 megapixels each. Physically the 48 megapixel sensor is the biggest that has been used inside an iPhone by Apple so far.
Ultrawide Camera – the iPhone 14 Pro gets a 12 megapixel 120” sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 13mm lens. The dual-pixel camera has a phase detection auto focus camera that calls for better quality images even in low light. This comes with a TOF 3D LiDAR depth scanner.
Telephoto Camera – the third, telephoto, camera has a 12 megapixel sensor with f/2.8 aperture and a 77mm telephoto lens. It provides up to 3x optical zoom and has optical image stabilisation.
iPhone 14 Pro Max Camera
Finally we come to the most exciting segment, if not the most affordable, as we talk about Apple’s flagship and the most awaited iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone 14 Pro Max camera is ingenuity at its best and has been said to be the pathbreaker in terms of camera prowess at least.
Wide Camera – the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera comes with a 48 megapixel sensor and is fairly similar to the iPhone 14 Pro. It has a f/1.8 aperture and 24mm lens and comes with dual-pixel PDAF and sensor-shift optical image stabilisation.
Ultrawide Camera – the iPhone 14 Pro Max ultrawide camera comes with a 12 megapixel sensor, a f/2.2 aperture and a 13mm lens. The 120” ultrawide camera has dual-pixel PDAF technology and comes with a TOF 3D LiDAR depth scanner.
Telephoto Camera – the telephoto camera in the iPhone 14 Pro Max has a 12 megapixel sensor, a f/2.8 aperture and a 77mm telephoto lens. The PDAF and optical image stabilisation-packed combo also provides 3x optical zoom.
iPhone 14 Series – Video and Other Similar Features
We’re not mentioning the video and other comparisons as these are mostly common across the iPhone 14 series. The cameras are all dual-LED, dual-tone flash, and offer HDR photos and panoramas.
The video prowess involves 4K recording capabilities at 25/30/60 frames per second (fps) and 1080p at 25/30/60/120 and 240 frames per second (fps).
The only difference arises in the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone Pro Max models in comparison to the iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 has HDR dolby vision (up to 60 fps) and
Cinematic mode (4K at 30 fps). In comparison the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models have a 10-bit HDR dolby vision (up to 60 fps) and ProRes Cinematic mode (4K at 25/30 fps).
Verdict – Price Compatibility
The verdict is based on two simple aspects – price and offerings. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models are offering additional capabilities but at a higher price. If you’re someone who is looking for a complete package but do not want to be shell shocked about spending close to 2 lakh rupees then you can simply go for the iPhone 14.
Despite missing the telephoto lens, the iPhone 14 gives you ample to cherish and can help you click great photos and make semi-pro videos in high quality wherever you are. The iPhone 14 camera sensors are capable of taking stunning low-light photos and you can make the most of Apple’s camera prowess at a budget price with this buy.
On the contrary, if you’re a professional, a hiker, photographer, someone who makes YouTube content around tech, sports, or travel then you have all the reasons to splash big and go for the iPhone 14 Pro or 14 Pro Max models. The iPhone 14 Pro has everything that the iPhone 14 Pro Max can offer minus the size so you can very well decide to save some money by going for the middle segment. You can compare the iPhone 14 Pro camera specifications with that of its successor in line and you will find very little difference.
But if you’re the everything big and bold kind of personality then you know the iPhone 14 Pro Max is meant for you.
That’s it for the blog – we will be back with iPhone 14 Pro Max technical specifications and why the iPhone 14 Plus doesn’t stand close to the other segments of the 14 . Till then, you keep up the technical instincts and keep reading.
