With Apple releasing new iPhone models, it can be hard to contain your curiosity, especially when everyone around you seems to be in on the new trend. This is how it has always been with new iPhone releases. You tell yourself you’re satisfied with your current phone and don’t need to be upgrading a new one. But, it’s all over social media, the internet and even among your peers. In circumstances like that, it can be hard not to consider trying out the newest models released by Apple. 

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are no exception. The two TELUS phones pack a lot of firsts. This trend of putting innovative features in a new phone is the new normal for Apple. You expect the next big idea out of the box. Sometimes it’s small things you want to do better. Other times it’s big things you hadn’t thought about. Let’s look at the new features to expect in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. 

iPhone 14 models are now available for Personal, TELUS EPP, Business and Corporate customers. 

  • Camera

The camera system features legendary upgrades on both phones. The front-facing ‘selfie’ camera and rear main cameras are 12 megapixels each. You can use the rear camera to snap extra angles, such as wide and ultra-wide. This allows you to shoot panoramas, capture more detail in a larger area, and better focus. You get higher-quality media in low-light environments. 

You also get a higher level of detail, vivid colour, and image stabilization in one snap. Not to mention, you can record stable videos when you shoot live action and in motion on uneven ground. 

  • Processing Power

The iPhone 14 comes with the superfast A15 Bionic chip. This pairs with the 5-core GPU to allow faster and more intense video and gaming experiences. Your games maintain crisp graphics and you no longer have to suffer through any buffering. You can enjoy the game without worrying about system performance. 

The cooling system is upgraded with faster technology. This gives you faster rendering and you won’t have to worry about performance lags when handling processor-intensive activities. 

On the software side, iOS 16 presents new, smarter ways to get more done quickly. 

  • Display 

A bigger screen means you see more content at once. More text, more video, and more space for streaming. The iPhone 14 has a 6.1-inch display. The iPhone 14 Plus stretches to 6.7 inches. The upgraded display is brighter and offers higher contrast. This is a big shift for Apple. Previously, the biggest screen size was only on the most expensive phone. 

The battery size corresponds to the screen size. It also combines a bigger battery with advanced graphics processing to ensure you don’t run out of power in the middle of the day. This ties into our next innovative upgrade. 

  • Battery 

You can play video games and spend hours on 5G internet and still not run out of juice before the end of the day. A fast-charge system gets you back into the game, fully charged, in an hour. The wireless charging option lets you juice up without connecting a cable. 

The slight difference in size also means a difference in the battery size. The iPhone 14 Plus packs more power while the iPhone 14 fills up quicker on fast charging. 

  • Safety

iPhone 14 is the first phone to have satellite emergency services. First, the phone can detect if you are involved in a car crash. This works through a series of sensors and inputs in the phone’s immediate environment and an advanced algorithm that is programmed to activate help. The phone dials emergency services if you don’t respond in a given time. 

The second and more exciting is that the call could be routed through satellite services if you’re in an area with no cellular signal. With iPhone 14, you can access three types of signals. Wi-Fi, cellular, and now, satellite in emergencies. 


The TELUS iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus phones are more affordable than their Pro and Pro Max versions. Besides price, the two phones are different in size and battery life. You can now enjoy a better camera, a bigger size with a bigger display, and improved processing performance. 

Similarly, the phones offer extended battery life and better emergency considerations among others. Enjoy the benefits without a big leap in price. You know you are getting more value and paying less money for it.
