- iPhone 14
- star white
- Red (PRODUCT RED)
Something that you have to take into account when talking about the design is the material from which both devices are made. It’s about a aerospace grade aluminum, which offers a really attractive shine. Now, our recommendation is to use the device with a cover, since it is a material that with use will surely present wear in the form of scratches or marks, as well as being quite fragile to falls and bumps.
When comparing two iPhones, one of the key points that users take into account to bet on one or the other is the cameras and what they can offer in terms of photography and video. From the outset we already warned you that the differences are not very bigbut the present ones can make some users end up opting for 14 instead of 13 or vice versa.
Both models feature a dual camera module, formed by the wide angle lens and the ultra wide angle lens, both of 12 Mpx. The main difference at the hardware level comes with the opening of the main lens, that is, the wide angle that on the iPhone 14 is f/1.5 and on the iPhone 13 it is f/1.6. We must also mention the front lens, that is to say the selfie camerathat there is indeed a big difference in aperture being f/1.9 on the iPhone 14 and f/2.2 on the iPhone 13. These differences in aperture are summed up in that the results when there is little light will be brighter, with less noise and more detail.
As for exclusivities that the iPhone 14 has and not the iPhone 13, it is worth highlighting the new stabilized recording mode, called by Apple as action mode. The reality is that the results it offers are really incredible and it is the closest thing you can find to recording with a gymbal, in fact even in situations you will get better results with this mode than otherwise. And if before we said that the improvement in aperture offered better results in sharpness and luminosity, the Photonic Engine also does its part, being present only on the iPhone 14. Finally, it should be mentioned that the cinema mode now on the iPhone 14 can go up to 4K and 30 f / s.
The reality is that the differences in this sense are quite scarce, very punctual that, in the vast majority of cases, they will go completely unnoticed, but for those users who use the iPhone to record many video clips, perhaps the action mode can decide the balance towards the iPhone 14. In the rest of the cases, the differences are not really enough to change one device for another.
If before in the cameras section we told you that there was few differences, the reality is that on the screen there is not a single function or feature that can differentiate both models. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 have exactly the same screen. But beware, this does not have to be bad news, since the iPhone 13 screen was already a fantastic panel, where users can do practically anything, as well as enjoy amazing picture quality to consume your favorite content on the different platforms and social networks.
It is a screen Super Retina XDR OLED. It has True Tone technology and a wide color range (P3), something that is very important, especially for those users who want to edit their photos directly from the iPhone itself. With their 800 nits of brightness You will have no problem seeing the screen of your iPhone in practically any circumstance, being able to reach 1200 nits with HDR content.
One of the aspects that most often matters to users when choosing an iPhone model or another is the battery. Well, again we continue with the same trend, that is, both the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 13 are going to offer you the same battery life. If you hurry, even the iPhone 14 can give you a few more minutes of autonomy, but the reality is that the two offer practically the same.
As we have said before in the section on the screen, this does not mean that it is bad, on the contrary, since a user on foot will have no problem getting to the end of the day with these two devices. Now, it obviously falls far short of the autonomy offered by its older brother, the iPhone 14 plus or even the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
If we talk about the battery, we must also talk about the way that users will have to charge these two devices. They both have port. LightningIn addition to being compatible with the wireless charging and of course with technology MagSafe, which not only provides one more way to charge the device, but also to use many other accessories that will add functionality and comfort when using the iPhone. They also have “fast” charging up to 20W.
Power is always a point on which any user who has an iPhone does not have to focus, since Apple ensures the fluidity and speed of the system in all its iPhones. So much so, that today, devices from 3 and 4 years ago continue to work like a charm without any slowdown, so it is something that is taken for granted.
Even so, with these two models something very curious happens and that until now had never happened between two generations of iPhone and that is, both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 feature the A15 Bionic chip, that is, the Cupertino company has not made the generation leap that, in theory, was involved with these new equipment, something that it has done with the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max models. However, surely if you put the A15 Bionic on these last two, its operation would be just as good as with the A16 Bionic.
We have reached the end of the comparison between these two iPhones, and obviously we have to talk about the price, since the existing differences can be more or less important depending on the price that you have to pay for these devices. In the case of the iPhone 13, the price is exactly the same as when it was released, that is, part of the 909 euros. It is something that has not happened until now, but it is because the price of the new iPhone 14 has risen, which has allowed Apple to keep the iPhone 13.
For its part, the iPhone 14 is now part of the €1009namely, 100 euros more expensive than the iPhone 13. Now, it will be up to each user to decide if it is really worth paying that difference in money given the “differences” that exist between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 13. Everything will depend on the needs of each person.
Which one are we left with?
Whenever at La Manzana Mordida we carry out a comparison of this type, we like to end it by giving you the point of view that we have from the editorial team. Obviously, everything will depend on the needs that the user who has to choose between these two models has. However, in most cases, if not in all, the most recommended option is the iPhone 13, since for less money you have practically the same benefits.
That said, in case you are reading this post, you have an iPhone 13 and you are thinking of making the leap to the iPhone 14, our recommendation is that you do not do it, since there are hardly any differences. In case you do or do want to change your device, our recommendation is that you do so for one of the two iPhone 14 Pro models.
