Apple doesn’t officially reveal the amount of RAM and battery capacity of each model, however, a third party that will reveal this information in the coming weeks may shed more light on this information. Apple says the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be able to offer more runtimes than last year’s iPhone models.
In terms of cameras, the iPhone 14 has a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera that combines a 1.9um sensor and an f/1.7 aperture lens. There’s a 12-megapixel sensor paired with an f/2.4 aperture super-wide-angle lens with a 120-degree field of view.

Apple also touts better low-light performance, thanks to the new Photonic Engine.
It is said to have improved low-light performance by up to 2x on the ultra-wide camera, 2x on the TrueDepth front camera, and 2.5x on the main camera. It applies the computational benefits of Deep Fusion during imaging. There’s also an improved True Tone flash that’s 10% brighter, Apple says.
