Apple resurrected the Plus range in the iPhone 14, in order to offer a large screen alternative to those who want to have the best of a Pro Max model, without having to shell out what they cost. so here Let’s compare the two most recent models who have this last name. So that you can see what you are going to gain in one or the other, so that you can decide for yourself which one may be best for you.
Screen, processors and cameras
In this first section we are going to see the characteristics of each one, in these three aspects. To begin with, the iPhone 15 Plus mounts a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR panel, and incorporates the Dynamic Island in its upper part. For its part, the iPhone 14 Plus has the same system, except that it has a reduced notch at the top.
The differences in the screens are based on the fact that the iPhone 15 Plus reaches a peak brightness of 2,000 nits outdoors, and that if in the 14 Plus we have 458 pixels per inch, in the iPhone 15 we have 460 pixels per inch. In both cases, the refresh rate is 60 Hz.
As for the processors, the iPhone 14 Plus has an Apple A15 Bionic chip, with a 6-core CPU, a 5-core GPU, and a 16-core Neural Engine. In the case of the iPhone 15 we have the A16 Bionic processor, with a 6-core CPU, a 5-core GPU and a 16-core Neural Engine. Therefore, it is the same chip that we already saw in the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Even if it is a difference of one year between one and the other, the spoiler has a name and surname: Assured power.
In the cameras section, we see that they have the same layout and lens system. Both have an Ultra Wide Angle and Wide Angle. Of course, in the iPhone 15 Plus we have 48 Megapixels of resolution, while in the iPhone 14 Plus we are left with 12.
Regarding the possibilities of the cameras, the iPhone 15 Plus reaches a maximum 2x zoom, while the 14 Plus stays at 1x. The iPhone 15 Plus has intelligent HDR processing system for 5 photos, while the iPhone 14 Plus has intelligent HDR for 4 photos.
If we look at the video section, in both models we can do the same: Action Mode, Cinema Mode, video recording in HDR and Dolby Vision, slow motion, etc. However, both also have the limitation of not being compatible with Apple ProRAW.
Battery, connections and physical port
Autonomy is a strong point in both phones. Being Plus models, they have a larger battery size than the 6.1-inch models. And this shows, since both are capable of offering up to 26 hours of video playback.
As for wireless connections, the iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 14 Plus have the same: Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.3 and 5G connection. In addition to GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou and QZSS positioning systems.
USB type C may be your compelling reason… Or not.
The physical connector has changed. And that is one of the biggest differences that we can find at the hardware level. If on the iPhone 14 Plus we continue with the Lightning connection, the iPhone 15 Plus already adopts the new USB type C standard.
We can connect a large number of accessories without having to buy Lightning adapters to use them. However, despite this, and the fact that USB C has a Display Port function, and allows you to connect the iPhone directly to an external monitor with a. cable, the truth is that both ports have something in common.
Although it has changed to the physical form, both have the same processing and data transfer speed, this being USB2. So we will not notice a jump in speed or fluidity, when we are exchanging data by cable between the iPhone and a computer, or with external memories.
