Excited to make an iPhone Purchase after such a long hiatus

Yesterday Apple announced the iPhone 14 line. The lines include the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

I made some cutouts below to compare sizes to determine my purchase. Based on the iPhone 14 Pro Max form factor it closely aligns with my current iPhone 7 Plus so this will be the option I go with when the phones open for pre-ordering tomorrow at 5 am PT.

Comparing models: iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Pro
Comparing Models
Size and Weight, iPhone 14 Pro Max is only 2 mm taller than the iPhone 7 Plus, the width is about the same

New iPhone 14 Pro Features

  • Dynamic Island πŸπŸ‘¦πŸΎ
  • Emergency SOS via satellite
  • Crash Detection
  • Always-On display
  • 2000 nits peak brightness (outdoor)
  • A16 Bionic chip
  • Pro camera system (48MP Main, 12MP Ultra Wide, and 12MP Telephoto) – 4X the iPhone 7 Plus 🀯
  • Photonic Engine – Much more detail. In much less light. The Photonic Engine allows Deep Fusion β€” which merges the best pixels from multiple exposures into one phenomenal photo β€” to happen earlier in the process on uncompressed images. This preserves much more data to deliver brighter, more lifelike colors and beautifully detailed textures in less light than ever.
  • Action mode: for smooth handheld videos – no gimbal required.

Other gains I’ll be getting from this HUGE upgrade
