Ah, the annual iPhone conundrum: is now the time to upgrade to the newest model? If you’re eyeing a flagship iPhone 14 Pro model, there are a few compelling reasons to buy, including a significant camera upgrade, the ability to send an SOS message via satellite, crash detection with automatic emergency services notification, and an always-on, sunlight-friendly display. The case for upgrading to a regular iPhone 14 model isn’t quite as strong, though both models will come with the same impressive safety features as the iPhone 14 Pro models, an improved camera, and the new larger, 6.7-inch display of the iPhone 14 Plus will certainly appeal to some.
I have been writing about consumer electronics for four decades, including news, reviews, analysis and history for a wide variety of consumer, niche and trade outlets. For the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), I annually update the industry's history and write the official biographies of the CTA Hall of Fame inductees. Aside from writing about consumer technology for a variety of consumer, tech and trade publications, I write a blog and do market research for Digital Technology Consulting. In the non-tech world, I have written "Bums No More: The Championship Season of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers" and "The Rules of Neighborhood Poker According to Hoyle."
