Should you upgrade? – Tech News, Firstpost

Apple is expected to launch the newest line of iPhones, the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Max and iPhone 14 Pro Max, today at its “Far Out” event. Although the company has not officially revealed anything about the launch of the smartphone, it is expected that the flagship smartphone will be unveiled today.

With a new iPhone coming out every year, it might be worth considering whether it’s worth upgrading to the latest iPhone. This is especially true for those who bought their iPhone 13 after its launch in September last year.

Although the specs of the iPhone 14 have yet to be released, there have been plenty of rumors floating around regarding what users can expect from the upcoming smartphone. So we compare what the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 have to offer (potentially, in the latter’s case) and see if you should consider an upgrade.

iPhone 13

Apple’s iPhone 13 succeeded the company’s best-selling iPhone 12. The smartphone comes with the in-house designed flagship A15 Bionic chipset and a Super Retina XDR display. The phone’s acclaimed screen supports HDR display, with True Tone color representation, Haptic Touch feedback, 20,00,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,200 nits peak brightness in HDR. The phone comes with different camera setups depending on the model, but the base variant comes with a 12MP dual camera system on the back with wide and ultra wide imagers. The phone is available in 5.4 inch and 6.1 inch screens.

The A15 Bionic chipset features a 6-core processor with 2 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores as well as a 4-core GPU.

iPhone 14

The upcoming iPhone 14 is expected to come in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screen sizes. The new smartphones will likely be powered by the A15 Bionic SoC, but with minor improvements and a new 6-core GPU. The iPhone 14 Pro Max may, however, come with an A16 Bionic chip. The camera installed in the new iPhone 14 is rumored to be the same as the previous generation. The display is also expected to remain the same with one key difference – the iPhone 14 is said to have a 90Hz refresh rate compared to the iPhone 13’s 60Hz.

Do you need to upgrade?

With only minor changes as far as rumored go, iPhone 13 users should steer clear of this generation of iPhones unless they are looking to expand the screen size of their device. With the supposed specs of the iPhone 15 already looking impressive, it might be best for iPhone 13 users to wait another year and grab the iPhone 15 when it comes out instead.
