The iPhone 14 series will be available for pre-order on Apple’s official website and partner e-commerce platforms, including four models iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max, starting at RMB 5,999, RMB 6,999, RMB 7,999, and RMB 8,999 respectively. Have you thought about which model to buy? If you haven’t thought about it yet, you might want to see which version people are most enthusiastic about.
Before the deadline, the product page of “Apple Products Jingdong Flagship Store” showed that the number of iPhone 14 reservations exceeded 330,000, the number of Plus Edition reservations exceeded 140,000, the number of Pro Edition reservations exceeded 1.13 million, and the number of Pro Max Edition reservations exceeded 800,000.
Judging from the number of reservations, the version people want to buy the most is the iPhone 14 Pro, while iPhone 14 Plus is cold, with only more than 140,000 people making reservations, which is indeed a bit surprising.
It is understood that both the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus are equipped with a full-blooded A15 chip. There are three main differences between the two models: body size, screen size, and battery life. Other configurations are exactly the same.
The iPhone 14 Pro/Max exclusively has the A16 chip, the manufacturing process has been upgraded from TSMC 5nm to TSMC 4nm, the number of transistors has increased from 15 billion to 16 billion, and 6 CPU cores, including 2 performance cores and 4 energy efficiency cores, 5 GPU cores, 16 NPU cores, the computing power per second has increased from 15.8 trillion times to 17 trillion times.
More importantly, on the iPhone 14 Pro series, Apple abandoned the “ancestral” Liu Haiping design and replaced it with a long pill shape (actually an exclamation point screen), which Apple named “Smart Island”, which can be used in real-time. Changes show important reminders, notifications, events, and more.
