The long-awaited Apple-iPhone 14 series was launched in September 2022, after much debate on what new features Apple would be bringing to the market.
As we all know, the release of a new iPhone series always manages to shake the internet as people are curious about the latest IOS version and all the new features the product has to offer.
The iPhone 14 came in four different versions; Apple-iPhone 14, iPhone 14 plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and apple-iPhone 14 pro max. Unlike the previous series, Apple didn’t release an iPhone 14 mini this year.
For those who are used to Apple’s mini-series, you might have been disappointed when Apple failed to release an iPhone 14 mini. This is because the mini-series failed to sell as well as the other versions. The apple-iPhone 12 mini only made up 6% of the total iPhone 12 sales and the iPhone 13, only 3%. Since the apple-iPhone 12 mini sales weren’t good enough, they minimized the production of the apple-iPhone 13 mini-series and finally decided to stop production.

Analysis Of The apple-iPhone 14 & apple-iPhone 14 Pro Series
While Apple has always managed to make desired improvements to their iPhones, over the years it seems as though they have just been recycling the former features. That is, improving the already good camera by a few pixels, increasing the RAM and ROM, battery, and the overall design of the phone.
Now people are asking, is the new iPhone worth splurging on?
Truth be told, ever since the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014, Apple has managed to stay in the top ten of the best phone brands because of its unique features and attractive design of the phone. They have always given us new features that kept iPhone users dedicated to the phone brand, but now the question is are they running out of new ideas?
According to CNN Business “Apple has gone from being the explorer of new territories to the defender of its fortress. Instead of attracting customers to the Apple ecosystem with breakthrough innovation, Apple is focusing on preventing its loyal customers from defecting to Android-based devices”.
That being said, here’s something you might want to consider before getting the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 pro series.
Cons Of apple-iPhone 14 And apple-iPhone 14 Pro Series
The iPhone 14 series comes with the A15 Bionic chipset which is the same as the iPhone 13 pro so if you are getting the iPhone 14, you are basically getting the 13 pro for a higher price. Because the screen size still comes in 6.1 & 6.7 inches, compared to the previous version, there are slight changes to the camera, if you want a significant change, you have to get the iPhone pro series.
