  • The standard iPhone 14 is slightly more powerful than the iPhone 13, but otherwise doesn't add many features.
  • Both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 run on an A15 Bionic chip, which is among the best in any smartphone.
  • The biggest difference is that the iPhone 14 has a better camera, satellite connectivity, and can't use physical SIM cards.

Every year, Apple reveals at least four new versions of the iPhone, each with its own exciting new features. But compared to past years, this year's standard iPhone 14 isn't very groundbreaking — in fact, it's incredibly similar to the older iPhone 13.

If you own an iPhone 13 and are considering an upgrade to the newest model, or don't have either and aren't sure which one to buy, here's a full guide comparing both on price, size, features, and more.

iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14: Sizes and screens

When it comes to size, both the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 14 are nearly identical.

Both phones have a 6.1-inch OLED screen, with a resolution of 2532 x 1170 pixels. They're both 5.78 inches tall and 2.82 inches wide. They're also both made out of water- and dust-resistant aluminum, with a ceramic screen.

The only slight differences are in weight and depth, as the iPhone 13 weighs 6.14 ounces with a thickness of 0.30 inches, while the iPhone 14 weighs 6.07 ounces with a thickness of 0.31 inches. 

Additionally, the iPhone 13 is available in a few more colors. You can buy the iPhone 13 in green, pink, blue, Midnight black, Starlight white, and (PRODUCT) red. The iPhone 14 only comes in blue, purple, Midnight black, Starlight white, and (PRODUCT) red.

iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14: Camera

The iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 both have three cameras: One selfie camera above the screen, and two cameras on the back.

Those back cameras are pretty much the same across both models. Both models have 12-megapixel Main and Ultra Wide cameras, each of which has 2x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom.

The difference is that the iPhone 14 adds a "Photonic Engine" — an extra processing step that helps your photos look crisper — and an "Action mode" that automatically stabilizes shaky videos.

The iPhone 14's front selfie camera also now has autofocus, which helps you take clear photos even when you're capturing different subjects at different distances.

iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14: Internal hardware

Probably the most notable similarity between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 is their internal Bionic chip.

Both phones run using Apple's A15 Bionic chip. This chip contains the iPhone's CPU, graphics card, image processor, and AI neural engine.

Although they both use an A15 chip, the iPhone 14's chip comes with some slight upgrades. The iPhone 14 version has a 5-core GPU, compared to the iPhone 13's 4-core — this lets games and videos look better while taking less power. 

In comparison, the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max use a new A16 Bionic chip, which is more powerful than either version of the A15. Despite this, the A15 is still one of the best "system on a chip" designs on any smartphone.

They also both still use Face ID, and can both connect to 5G signals.

iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14: Battery

The iPhone 14's upgraded A15 Bionic chip also lets you get more performance out of every battery charge. According to Apple's tests, the iPhone 14 can last about an hour longer than the iPhone 13 when in constant use playing videos — 20 hours of battery life compared to 19 hours.

Both iPhones support magnetic MagSafe and Qi wireless charging, as well as fast Lightning cable charging from a 20W adapter.

iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14: Other notable features

There are a few new features introduced on the iPhone 14 that iPhone 13 users won't have.

The first is emergency satellite SOS connections. When you buy an iPhone 14, you get a free two-year subscription for Apple's "Emergency SOS via satellite" program, which lets you send text messages to emergency services even when you don't have a cell signal. It does this by connecting to satellites flying in space, which then relay your messages and locations to emergency responders back on Earth.

The iPhone 14 also includes a built-in force sensor that can detect when you've been in a car crash. If the sensor detects a crash, it'll automatically offer to call emergency services — if you don't or can't respond, it'll call them without your input.

Lastly, the iPhone 14 doesn't use physical SIM cards. Instead, you'll need to install an electronic SIM card, also called an eSIM. You don't need to pay extra for this, or even have a Wi-Fi connection to install it — all you need is to have an account with a cell carrier that supports them.

iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14: Price

The price of your iPhone will change depending on how much internal storage you want it to have. Both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 offer the same storage options — 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB — but they cost different amounts.

In general, the iPhone 14 is $100 more than the iPhone 13 at every price point. Here's a chart breaking it down:

 iPhone 13iPhone 14
128 GB$699$799
256 GB$799$899
512 GB$999$1099

*This chart doesn't include taxes, shipping fees, or extra carrier costs.

Insider's takeaway

If you already own an iPhone 13 and it's still working well, there's not much reason to buy an iPhone 14. They have nearly all the same features, they're the same size, and run the same apps. The only extras you'll get on the iPhone 14 are a slightly better camera, and two features you probably won't use in the emergency satellite SOS and car crash detection.

That said, if your iPhone is breaking down or a few years older, the iPhone 14 might be worth the investment. It's only $100 more than the iPhone 13, and comes with a fantastic camera and one of the best internal chips you can buy.

No matter what you pick, Apple will support both the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 for years to come. There's no rush to buy either — since Apple won't reveal the iPhone 15 for another year, you've got some time to decide.
