Apple’s iPhones have had a long history of consistently having one of the best cameras in a smartphone, and that legacy has carried on across many generations of devices in the last 15 years.
This year’s iPhone 14 series of devices can be broken down into two groups, based on the camera features. Both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models come with a main 12MP camera with 26mm, ƒ/1.5 aperture, sensor-shift optical image stabilisation, seven-element lens, and 100% Focus Pixels, as well as a 12MP Ultra Wide camera at 13mm, ƒ/2.4 aperture, and 120° field of view, five-element lens and 2X optical zoom out with 5X digital zoom.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro models come with a main 48MP camera with 24mm, ƒ/1.78 aperture, second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilisation, seven-element lens and 100% Focus Pixels, a 12MP 3X Telephoto with 77mm, ƒ/2.8 aperture, optical image stabilisation, six-element lens, 3X optical zoom in, 2X optical zoom out with 6X optical zoom range and digital zoom up to 15x, as well as a 12MP Ultra Wide camera at 13mm, ƒ/2.2 aperture and 120° field of view, six-element lens and 100% Focus Pixels.
That doesn’t automatically mean one is inherently superior in every way, as the great thing about the iPhone is that it teaches us that with it, anyone can be a photographer. During the recent Singapore Grand Prix, we took the Apple iPhone 14 Plus to the tracks, and snapped some great photos. Singapore’s F1 is a night race, so what you see here are photos captured on the iPhone 14 Plus at night, and as with any shots taken by the iPhone, the photos speak for themselves.
And as a comparison, we also shot some photos with the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max and you can ask yourself this – if we didn’t differentiate between the photos taken, can you tell which were shot with the iPhone 14 Plus, and which were taken by the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera?
