iPhone 14 at a glance
A solid and occasionally spectacular upgrade on the iPhone 13. That’s how tech-watchers are describing the iPhone 14. And it’s a pretty fair assessment too.
The standard model of Apple’s 2022 phone features a design that’s broadly unchanged from the iPhone 13. It’s the same size and features the same button layout and mostly glass construction. But what is new is very welcome.
Not least the titanium edges that mean the phone is tougher and more smash-resistant. And there’s a new purple colourway too.
The screen comes in at 6.1 inches and features Super Retina XDR technology, with the same display resolution as the iPhone 13.
Around the back, you’ll find a dual camera that consists of a 12-megapixel wide lens and 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens.
What you don’t get is Apple’s Dynamic Island feature, which is reserved for the iPhone 14 Pro models. But you can decide if you’re really missing out by reading our iPhone 14 Pro description.
Availability and price

iPhone 14 design
Not much has changed from iPhone 13. In truth, the iPhone 14 is very hard to tell apart from its predecessor.
Dimensions are identical, and it retains the super thin bezels and the controversial large notch that eats into the screen and houses the front camera.
Choose from blue, purple, black, white, and red colour options.
iPhone 14 camera
The dual camera features an wide-lens and ultra-wide lens, both of which come in at 12 megapixels. That’s the same as the iPhone 13.
But this time around, Apple has expanded the aperture and incorporated a dual-tone flash. That means it lets in more light for better performance in low light.
The iPhone 14 is also capable of recording video in lush 4K at 60fps, for slick home movies.

Is iPhone 14 worth buying in 2023?
Absolutely, it is. While it’s not the top-of-the-range 2022 iPhone (that honour goes to the iPhone 14 Pro Max, the iPhone 14 is a state-of-the-art smartphone that excels as a cameraphone and looks fantastic.
What’s the difference between the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13?
Not too much. They’re nigh-on identical cosmetically. But with a better camera, improved battery life there’s just about enough to differentiate them. Whether that’s worth the extra outlay for the iPhone 14 is your call.

Unlikely. Because the Phone 14 is new and expensive, customers with impaired credit ratings have got much less chance of being approved than if they opted for a cheaper model. So that’s what we’d suggest you do.
