Apple iPhone 14 Plus Review
It’s a wise move on Apple’s side to replace the small with Apple iPhone 14 Plus. Apple has acknowledged the end of small phones by releasing a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus to go along with the 6.1-inch iPhone 14.
At first glance, Apple iPhone 14 Plus only seems to have that one new feature. The Plus has a comparable A15 Bionic processor as Apple’s iPhone 13, except it has additional graphics cores. The design is identical to that of the iPhone 13. What else has changed besides the size, then?
With enhanced low-light shooting and a new Action mode for video, Apple iPhone 14 Plus places a strong emphasis on camera enhancements. New safety features include Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via satellite, among others.
Is the 14-inch iPhone Plus thrilling? Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max, which does away with the notch as well as sports a new 48MP camera and always-on display, is not particularly exciting. However, Apple iPhone 14 Plus could be the ideal iPhone for you if you want a large display for $200 (AU$320) less.

Apple iPhone 14 Plus design and colors
In terms of design, Apple iPhone 14 Plus is really just a bigger iPhone from last year. The same set of cameras are still on the back, and the notch is still present. The size is the only real difference.
When messaging or using the web, Apple iPhone 14 Plus’ 6.7-inch display allows you to see more information without having to scroll. For a display of this size at least, the design is rather lightweight. It weighs 7.16 ounces as opposed to Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max’s 8.47 ounces. I liked how this item is rather portable after using it for a while.
What’s not here? SIM card holder. In order to support the eSIM standard, Apple removed it. Despite the fact that the firm claims this function is simple to use, I don’t appreciate not having the freedom to quickly insert a new SIM card.
Five colors—Midnight, Purple, Starlight, Product Red, and Blue—are available for Apple iPhone 14 Plus.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus release date and price
Apple iPhone 14 Plus has a release date of October 7, which really is later than the standard iPhone 14 (September 16). (September 16). Preorders for Apple iPhone 14 Plus begin on September 9.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus starts at $899 (AU$1,579), which includes 128GB of storage. That costs $200 (AU$320) less than the same-sized iPhone 14 Pro Max, but is $100 (AU$180) more expensive than Apple iPhone 14.
The price of the 512GB iPhone 14 Plus is $1,199 (AU$2,099), while the 256GB variant is $999 (AU$1,749). The current greatest discounts may be seen on our Apple iPhone 14 ordering page.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus performance
Apple iPhone 14 Plus seems a bit like a warmed over iPhone 13 in the performance sense, and that’s because it employs last-A15 year’s Bionic CPU. However, it is not an identical replica. You receive the 5-core GPU that was exclusive to the iPhone 13 Pro versions the previous year.
However, during our hands-on time, Apple iPhone 14 Plus felt responsive, and it should once more outperform the Android competition. While playing a hectic Apple Arcade game, I also enjoyed the fluid gameplay.

Apple iPhone 14 Plus battery life and charging
I’m not really sure what Apple means when they claim that Apple iPhone 14 Plus has the “greatest battery life on iPhone.” It has a 26-hour video playback time limit, a 20-hour streaming video limit, and a 100-hour audio limit.
Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max, meanwhile, increases it to 29, 25, and 95 hours. The ordinary iPhone is rated to last 20, 16, and 80 hours in certain situations, however, Apple iPhone 14 Plus is rated to last up to twice as long.
Do not anticipate the fastest charging. Using a 20W charger, Apple iPhone 14 Plus reaches 50% in 30 minutes. And it also features 15W MagSafe charging.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus cameras
You won’t see an increase in resolution because Apple iPhone 14 Plus just has a 12MP camera. You should receive brighter photographs with less noise because it does have a bigger sensor with more pixels.
An additional benefit is that Apple iPhone 14 Plus makes use of Apple’s new Photonic Engine, which employs computational photography to enhance low-light performance up to 2.5 times on the main camera and up to 2 times on the ultra-wide and front cameras. We could see a lot of detail in a woman’s clothing in a camera sample of her standing close to a window.
You’ll be happy to discover that the front TrueDepth camera features an aperture wider than f/1.9 and autofocus if you enjoy snapping selfies.
The new Action mode is excellent since it smooths down footage when used with it. When I observed a side-by-side comparison of the feature on and off, the outcome appeared to be much more steady.
To know how Apple iPhone 14 Plus compares to the top camera phones, we’ll have to test it out for ourselves.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus satellite and crash detection
Apple iPhone 14 Plus has two noteworthy safety features. When you are outside of the cellular range, you can text emergency services using the first option, Emergency SOS via satellite. This November, this service will first be offered in the United States and Canada. You get two years of coverage when you buy an Apple iPhone 14 Plus.
The accelerometer and gyroscope of Apple iPhone 14 Plus are also used for crash detection, which uses your behalf to notify emergency agencies.
Apple iPhone 14 Plus outlook
Apple iPhone 14 Plus doesn’t exactly exude a sense of wonder. But it might not need it given that it offers supporters of large-screen phones a competitive choice without having to pay a significant extra. It certainly seems like a good value both on paper and in person, and at $899 (AU$1,579), it is directly competing with the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus as well as the upcoming Google Pixel 7 Pro.
Those seeking more sophisticated features, including as a 48MP camera and an always-on display, could be better suited saving an extra $200 (AU$320) to get Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max. But Apple iPhone 14 Plus can work for you if you’re on a tight budget and want a huge screen.
