A comparison between iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro models

Apple introduced its latest lineup of iPhones just recently. It’s called the iPhone 14 series. It has four models; iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro, and the 14 Pro Max. The first two are what we can call the “base models”, while the last two are high-end models.

While some people may be aware of their technical specs and what sets one apart from the other, many people find it confusing to choose the right iPhone that suits their needs and lifestyle. For those discerning customers, we have written this article so they can make the right decision and understand the differences among different iPhone models. So, let’s begin.

Availability of colours:

Let’sLet’s start with some simple differences and then move on to more technical ones. Apple has made a difference in colours for the premium and the base models. The cheaper iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are available in Purple, Blue, Product Red, Midnight and Starlight colours. In contrast, the high-end iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max come in Silver, Gold, Space Black, and Deep Purple.

Choice of material:

To give the iPhone 14Pro and Pro Max a more sophisticated and polished look, they are made with surgical-grade stainless steel. It also makes them slightly heavier. For the production of iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, Apple has chosen aerospace-grade aluminum, which is still a great choice of material. The ceramic shield front is common among all models.

A new processor:

The Pros have got a new processor in iPhone 14. The base models will be available with the A15 Bionic chip, but the top-tier models will have A16 Bionic chip. The A16 Bionic chip is a 16-core Neural engine with a 6-core CPU and a 5-core GPU. The new chip, however, is only marginally superior to the old one. It won’t make a drastic impact on the overall performance of the iPhones.


The Super Retina XDR display is standard in all iPhone 14 models. However, the Pro models still enjoy a better display. It is because of the ProMotion technology that allows up to 120 fps liquid-smooth refresh rate. It makes the videos and images appear super crisp and clear.

The Pro models also have higher display brightness levels than the base models. The base models can claim brightness levels of up to 800 nits under normal conditions and up to 1000 nits with HDR. The Pro models can double it with 1600 nits with HDR and 2000 nits under sunlight.

Camera capabilities:

It is where the major difference lies between the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, and the Pro models. The Pro models sport a far superior camera. First, the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus have a dual camera system that comprises a 12-megapixel primary and ultra-wide camera. The Pro models have a triple camera system which consists of a 48-megapixel primary camera and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 12-megapixel telephoto camera.

There are other improvements, too, like the second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilization, an improvement in the optical and digital zoom capacities, an adaptive true-tone flash system, close-up macro photographs, night-mode portraits, and Apple ProRAW. All these qualities make the Pro models’ cameras truly professional.


Here again, the Pro models take the lead as only they are available with 1TB memory.

Battery backup:

The Pro models enjoy a longer battery life thanks in part to the new chip installed in them. The company claims that they can achieve approx. Twenty-nine hours of video playback, 95 hours of audio playback, and 25 hours of streaming videos. The base models can achieve 26 hours of video playback, 20 hours of streaming videos, and 100 hours of audio playback.

Dynamic Island:

iPhones 14 and 14 Plus have the infamous “notch” that Tim Cook announced before the end of 2018, while iPhones 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max come with a new hole-punch design that Apple calls the Dynamic Island. This so-called Dynamic Island expertly uses the OLED display’s on/off pixel ability to ensure a smooth UI with tools such as popups and shortcuts customized to the particular app you are using.

Buying the iPhone 14:

There are several online and conventional stores that offer iPhones and other Apple products. We would like to talk about Wise Market, Australia here. It is an online retail store that sells refurbished, new and old smartphones, laptops, tablets, and accessories.

Their products carry a 13-months warranty and a 21-day money-back guarantee. The prices are super-competitive, and you also get free delivery anywhere in Australia.


That is all on the topic of the differences between iPhone 14, 14 Plus, and iPhone Pro and Pro Max. We hope you will find this piece informative. We have spelled out the major differences to help you understand their different features so you can choose which one is right for you.
