I don’t know about you guys, but I am done with Apple’s ads campaign naming every new iteration of the iPhone “the best iPhone ever made”. Apple makes minor improvements and releases a new iPhone every year and that is the case mostly, until there comes along a huge improvement.
iPhone 15 needs a big breakthrough to be called “This is the best iPhone ever made”
Let’s take the recent two iPhone releases as an example, the iPhone 14 is the same as iPhone 14, and you can take my word for it because it is true. Don’t believe me all right, let me tell you how.
iPhone 14 has the same camera as the previous year’s iPhone 13, all the change that you probably can’t even observe is the change in aperture. The iPhone 13’s camera has ƒ/1.6 aperture, while the iPhone 14’s camera has ƒ/1.5 aperture. iPhone 13’s front camera has ƒ/2.2 aperture, while iPhone 14 has ƒ/1.9 aperture.
And there is virtually no change in video recording and performance.
The iPhone 14 has a new safety feature called Crash Detection. The iPhone 14 has Bluetooth 5.3, while iPhone 13 has Bluetooth 5.0. iPhone 14 provides a 1-hour longer Audio and Video payback.
Those are the only changes made to the best-ever iPhone of this year. Well at least Apple used to upgrade the chipset used, however, this year the regular iPhone 14 buyers don’t even get that. All you get for buying the new iPhone 14 is 5 cores, instead of 4.
Even the so-called improvement of the notch in the PRO models, Dynamic Island, was a great advertisement scheme by Apple. Dynamic Island being so new requires lots of integration, which will require time. It is a hindrance while watching content on the iPhone 14 Pro, and it is still ugly. Thankfully if you are an iPhone 14 Pro user or aspiring buyer, you get huge camera updates and the new A16 Bionic chip.
All of these factors culminate in dethroning the iPhone 14 and making the iPhone 14 Pro “the best iPhone ever made”. And that is sad for us as consumers because the majority purchase the regular iPhone and not the PRO models. This is exactly why iPhone 15 requires a big breakthrough to be called “This is the best iPhone ever made”. Else, Apple might have to retire the phrase, as it would not be justifiable by even hardcore Apple fanatics.
