iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro in Nigeria (2024). Apple has announced big changes in the iPhone 14 Pro vs iPhone 13 Pro. Here’s how they compare. Apple released the new iPhone 14 Pro, and though it looks almost exactly identical to the iPhone 13 Pro (at least from the back), there are some huge upgrades all around the device. In fact, the iPhone 14 Pro might just be the most exciting iPhone in a long time. So, if you’re wondering whether the new smartphone is worth the $999 asking price, here is a detailed comparison.

The iPhone 14 Pro is the successor to the iPhone 13 Pro and brings with it some exciting new upgrades. The new Pro iPhones will continue features from last year’s models — including 120Hz displays and telephoto cameras — but there is a lot more in store for buyers of the new Pro models. So now is the time to compare the iPhone 14 Pro vs the iPhone 13 Pro.

While not much has changed with the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Pro has gained a good range of interesting new features, including the all-new Dynamic Island, an Always-On display, and the A16 Bionic chip.

iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone 13 Pro price in Nigeria

At ₦800,000/$999/£949 and ₦900,000/$1,099/£1,049 respectively, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max are already pretty expensive phones. But unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, the iPhone 14 Pro models won’t be getting any cheaper. (prices are not fixed.)

Indeed, for U.K. buyers, they’re actually getting more expensive. The iPhone 14 Pro will start at ₦800,000/$999/£1,099, which is around £150 more than the previous model cost for U.K. customers, although it is priced the same as its predecessor in the U.S. Similarly, the iPhone 14 Pro Max will start at ₦900,000/$1,099/£1,199, again showing a mark up in UK pricing.

Apple’s likely to stop selling the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max once the iPhone 14 launches, since that’s what happened to both the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro in previous years. You’ll likely be able to find iPhone 13 Pro handsets at third-party retailers and cell carriers for a little while after they’re discontinued though. If price is a primary driver for you, it might be worth picking up an iPhone 13 Pro model now, before they all sell out.

iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone 13 Pro cameras

The iPhone 13 Pro used 12MP sensors for all four of its cameras. But the iPhone 14 Pro comes with a 48MP sensor on the main camera, for higher resolution images.

The iPhone 13 Pro models feature a wider maximum aperture of f/1.5 on the main camera versus f/1.78 on the iPhone 14 Pro, meaning the older models are theoretically capable of producing brighter images. However, with a much larger sensor, upgraded image stabilization and Apple’s new Photonic Engine image processor, the iPhone 14 Pro should produce cleaner, more detailed images in low light.

The new quad pixel sensor also allows a 2x telephoto zoom mode, meaning you’ll have more flexibility with your zooming and framing.

While ProRAW photos were available to iPhone 13 Pro users, thanks to its huge sensor, the iPhone 14 Pro offers ProRAW files in uncompressed 48-megapixels, which means they’ll be huge and absolutely packed full of image data to manipulate. If you’re a fan of having ultimate control over your images in post-production, then the iPhone 14 Pro has the camera for you.

In terms of video, there’s no 8K as rumoured, but the iPhone 14 Pro can shoot 4K at 24 fps, 25 fps, 30 fps and 60 fps, just as you’d find on the iPhone 13 Pro. The difference between the two is that 4K/24 fps is now available in Cinematic mode on the iPhone 14 Pro.

Apple touts this as a professional feature, given that 24 fps is a widely used frame rate by filmmakers looking to craft cinematic video. However, this isn’t really as big of a deal as they’re making out. Pro cinematographers still probably won’t be using their iPhone over their Arri, and the iPhone 13 Pro still shoots at 4K/24 fps in normal video modes. It does give users of the iPhone 14 Pro some extra creative freedom when crafting stylized, cinematic feeling videos, though.

Meanwhile, on the front, the iPhone 14 Pro has a slightly upgraded selfie camera, with a brighter maximum aperture of f/1.9 versus f/2.2 on the iPhone 13 Pro. It’ll also use the new Photonic Engine image processor to make for brighter and sharper selfies.

Dual SIM and eSIM

iPhones have had dual SIM support for a while, with a nano-SIM + eSIM configuration in most countries. However, with the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple is removing the SIM tray from US models of the iPhone. This means that US customers will only be able to use an eSIM in the iPhone 14 Pro.

The iPhone 13 Pro, on the other hand, had a SIM tray which could hold a nano SIM card, and support an additional eSIM as well.

Performance Differences between iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro

Though the non-pro versions of the iPhone 14 come with the same A15 Bionic as last year’s iPhone 13 series, the iPhone 14 Pro brings the new A16 Bionic processor. This new chip is built on a 4nm process, which means it’s more efficient and faster than the A15 Bionic which was built on a 5nm process.

The A16 Bionic has a 6-core CPU, with the same set-up as the A15 Bionic. There are 2 high-performance cores and 4 high-efficiency cores to go with them. Alongside this is a 5-core GPU to power all the graphical needs of the iPhone 14 Pro. There’s also a 16-core Neural Engine that enables features such as the new Photonic engine for better photography, and other machine learning and AI features on the iPhone.

Apart from these (and the ISP), the A16 Bionic also has a Display Engine that enables features like the 1Hz refresh rate for the Always On Display, the higher (2000 nits) brightness, and even the anti-aliasing and other animations that run all through the system, and especially on the Dynamic Island.

Though we are yet to see the real-world performance of the new A16 Bionic, it’s a safe bet that it will be one of the fastest smartphone processors, and should be considerably better than the A15 Bionic that it replaces. That said, it must be noted that the A15 Bionic is no slouch by any stretch of the imagination, and it will be a solid smartphone chipset for a few more years to come.

iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone 13 Pro battery

Currently, we don’t know any more about the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max battery life than Apple tell us, as we’ve yet to properly test the new models. Apple said the iPhone 14 Pro Max offers all-day battery life, which translates to 25 hours of video playback. This is great, as it’s the same as the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

There isn’t any upgrade to the 20W charging found on the iPhone 13 Pro Max, however, which we were hoping for but weren’t optimistic we’d see.

That sounds like bad news for the iPhone 14 Pro Max, but hopefully, it won’t be. For one, the battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro Max was already excellent so it’s not like the iPhone 14 has inherited a terrible power unit. And it remains to be seen whether in real-life testing we’ll see improvements with the new models.

iPhone 14 Pro vs. iPhone 13 Pro display

Once again, the iPhone Pro models for 2024 feature a 6.1-inch display, and the Pro Max version sports a 6.7-inch display. You’re actually getting more screen on the iPhone 14 models, however, as despite having the same measurements in inches, the bezels are smaller.

The iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max introduced ProMotion adaptive 120Hz displays to the iPhone for the first time, allowing for a display that’s both smoother and more power efficient.

Apple has given the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max the same capability, and then some. While the new iPhone Pro models can still reach refresh rates of up to 120Hz, they can also scale back down to 1Hz, as opposed to the 10Hz minimum of the iPhone 13 Pro models. This lower minimum refresh rate will make the iPhone 14 Pro models more power efficient as they operate more slowly than their predecessors when required.

This new display also enables the Always-On display, which you may have encountered in Apple Watches. This will let you see widgets like those you can add to your lock screen in iOS 16 on your phone even when it’s locked, allowing for convenient updates at a glance and in full colour, without a huge detriment to battery life.

What’s more, while the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max models featured a rated peak brightness of 1,200 nits, the iPhone 14 Pro modes offer 1,600 nits, with up to 2,000 nits of peak brightness for outdoor use. This means the new phones will perform even better in challenging bright lighting conditions.
