During the ‘Far Out’ event on Wednesday, Apple finally announced the latest iPhone 14 series. As expected, the lineup includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. These come as successors to the iPhone 13 models from last year. However, the biggest change this year is Apple replacing the mini iPhone with a bigger iPhone 14 Plus. This phone will appeal to those wanting a 6.7-inch sized iPhone but who don’t want to spend a fortune on the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The iPhone 14 Plus and the standard iPhone 14 have received minor upgrades over last year’s series. These changes are reserved for battery and some minor camera improvements. In fact, Apple has even retained the same A15 Bionic chipset that powered the iPhone 13 series last year.
