2. iPhone 14 FAQ

The iPhone 14 now costs $699 upfront at Apple, which is $100 less than the original launch price back in 2022. While still not cheap, the new reduced price makes it a relatively good buy if you want to save a bit of cash but still need a decently powerful device with a good camera.

What are the headline features for the iPhone 14? Well, Apple followed its usual tactic of iterative improvements, so the iPhone 14 mainly offers some internal tweaks in a familiar package versus the previous generation. The design and display are the same as the old model, but it comes with a slightly beefed-up processor (the same as 2021's iPhone 13 Pro), a number of camera improvements (notably better low-light shooting), and a satellite SOS system that's handy if you're in a fix. You'll find more of our thoughts on the new device in the FAQ section further down the page.

We're mostly lining up iPhone 14 deals on the standard device on this page, although we've also included details on the more expensive models so you know all your options.

Apple iPhone 14: free with an unlimited data plan, plus free iPad at Verizon
Both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are available for free with a new unlimited data line right now - a great deal, but one that's overshadowed by the fact that Verizon is currently offering a similar discount on the latest iPhone 15. We'd recommend going for the newer device here but it's worth noting that the various plan criteria needed to claim a free iPhone 14 are a little looser than on the 15. Meaning, you don't need to be on the super pricey 'Ultimate' plan to be eligible for a free device here - just a line on any (cheaper) unlimited plan. 

Apple iPhone 14: $10/mo $5.99/mo with an unlimited plan at AT&T

Apple iPhone 14: $10/mo $5.99/mo with an unlimited plan at AT&T
AT&T's currently offering the iPhone 14 for just $6 per month alongside an unlimited data plan - a flexible promotion that doesn't need the usual trade-in criteria the carrier is usually fond of. Overall, this is one of the better promotions at AT&T right now, although we have seen the carrier offer the device for as little as $2 per month under the same terms previously so you may want to wait it out if you're interested in this deal. 

Apple iPhone 14: save up to $640 with a trade-in at Apple

Apple iPhone 14: save up to $640 with a trade-in at Apple
The iPhone 14 is still readily available from Apple post-iPhone 15 launch and it's now $100 cheaper thanks to the release of the latest device. In short, even though it's not the most recent model, buying an iPhone 14 upfront makes a lot of sense now if you want a decent flagship on a slightly more reasonable budget. To get that price down even further you can also trade in an old device for an additional rebate of up to $640.

OS: iOS 15 | Screen size: 6.1-inch Retina XDR (60Hz)| Resolution: 2532 x 1170 | CPU: Apple A15 | Memory: N/A | Weight: 174g |Storage: 128 / 256 / 512GB | Battery: N/A | Rear camera: 12MP wide, 12MP ultrawide| Front camera: 12MP 

With the iPhone 14, Apple stuck to its philosophy of introducing useful, if somewhat incremental, upgrades to its flagship smartphones. The general vibe here is: 'If it ain't broke, why fix it?' - resulting in a device that is, at its heart, an updated and refined version of the iPhone 13, which itself featured the same basic design as the iPhone 12. 

2022's handset featured the same boxy design, with aluminum sides and that now-iconic notch at the top of the screen. The display technology is the same as the iPhone 13 too, although the A15 Bionic chip inside the iPhone 14 has been boosted to the slightly better version in the iPhone 13 Pro. On the surface, this may seem a little disappointing, but it's worth noting that the A15 Bionic chip is still more powerful than those in many equivalent flagship Android rivals in 2022, and this is still one of the best phones in the world.

So what is new? Firstly, Apple put its focus on the camera system for the iPhone 14, introducing sensor upgrades, new lenses, and a new 'Photonic' computational engine. This is enough, the brand claims, to increase low light performance by up to 2.5 times compared to the previous model, and you'll also get much-improved image stabilization for video. Combined, it's likely to make it even easier to snap those brilliant images iPhones are known for.

Two other notable features are a new satellite SOS system, which enables emergency alerts and crash detection, and is something also featured on the new Apple Watches. The iPhone 14 boasts slightly improved battery life too. 

Arguably, the real upgrades for 2022 are generally reserved for the more premium 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models. These devices have the new A16 Bionic chip, more camera upgrades, and a new 'Dynamic Island' screen element that essentially hides the front camera notch with novel software elements.

Is the iPhone 14 still worth it?

Yep, the iPhone 14 is still a fantastic device in the post-iPhone 15 world, even though it's definitely 'last-gen' now. The iPhone 15 is a significant upgrade thanks to its new design, Dynamic Island display, and chipset - the iPhone 14 is no slough, however. 

For example, the A15 Bionic chipset in the iPhone 14 is still more than enough to blaze through daily tasks and give decent performance for mobile gaming. The camera is also still really good, and supports most of the latest computational features thanks to the 'Photonic' engine.

Perhaps the biggest selling point for the iPhone 14, however, is that great deals are readily available on this older device. While most deals on the iPhone 15 are locked behind a trade-in, deals on the iPhone 14 tend to skip the rebate in favor of a simple monthly device discount, which can be a much more flexible option.
