The new iPhone release date is the month of September every year announces by apple. The iPhone 14 Plus price in Pakistan is Rs.215,000+Own and varies due to unavoidable conditions of the economy.
New this year is the lack of a “mini” model in favor of a larger affordable iPhone, the iPhone 14 Plus. It shares hardware with the regular iPhone 14, but has a much larger 6.7-inch display, making it a more affordable version of the more expensive and premium iPhone 14 Pro Max.

iPhone 14 review: Design and colors
The iPhone 14 Plus design is not what I’d call fresh. It’s basically a carbon copy of the iPhone 13 specs with a larger size of 6.7″, complete with the notch.
Don’t get me wrong, the aluminum and glass body is solid and fairly attractive — and you get the same tough Ceramic Shield front and tough glass back, along with IP68 water resistance. But you’ll probably be jealous when you see the iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island, which replaces the notch with a smaller and interactive cutout for alerts and live activities.
The iPhone 14 Plus colors are Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple, and Red. We tested the paler blue model, which is an attractive cornflower blue shade.
In a somewhat controversial move, Apple removed the SIM Card slot from the iPhone 14 Plus, relying on eSIMs only. Fortunately, it’s easy to add a line of service in the Settings app, and you can have up to eight 8 SIMs on your phone with two actives at any given time (say one for personal and one for business). There are some smaller and international carriers that don’t yet support eSIM, but the technology is gaining traction.
iPhone 14 Plus: Display
The iPhone 14 Plus 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display remains one of the best screens in this price range in terms of quality, even though there are no upgrades over last year. The biggest missing feature is a 120Hz refresh rate, which the Galaxy S22 offers, so you don’t get the same super-smooth scrolling or animation in supported games.
iPhone 14 Plus review: Cameras
The iPhone 14 Plus main camera doesn’t get the bump to 48MP that the iPhone 14 Pro series does, but it does feature enhanced cameras in its own way. The main 12MP wide camera has a larger sensor than the one in the iPhone 13, with 1.9-micrometer pixels and a faster f/1.7 aperture. As a result, you should expect better action shots and low-light performance.
The iPhone 14 Plus also packs an ultrawide camera that’s rated to capture 4x more of a scene and deliver 2x better low-light performance. And the TrueDepth camera offers autofocus for the first time along with a faster f/1.9 aperture. To help capture brighter images across the board, there’s a new computational photography feature called Photonic Engine.
The iPhone 14 Plus also has the edge versus the Pixel 6 in this shot of Halloween decorations. The colors are punchier on the iPhone when you look at the sunflowers and gnomes, though the Pixel does a better job exposing the decorations in the shadowy background.
Turning to the ultrawide camera, the iPhone 14 Plus edges out the Pixel 6 with a slightly brighter image with more contrast as you look at the tree in the water. And it fits in more of the scene, though both images are excellent.
With Night mode engaged, the iPhone 14 Plus captures a brighter image than the Pixel 6 of this fire pit area, even if the iPhone’s image looks a bit more artificially lit. Still, I like how sharp the paving stones look in Google’s shot, and how crisp the lights are.
iPhone 14 Plus: Performance
The iPhone 14 plus chip is new and old at the same time. It’s the A15 Bionic from last year’s iPhone 13 Pro max specification, so you get a slight step up in graphics performance with its 5-core GPU.
NBA 2K also delivered dazzling graphics, including a realistic-looking Giannis Antetokounmpo looking downtrodden after I failed to score. Another plus, the iPhone 14 Plus didn’t get too warm while playing for 30 minutes, and this is likely thanks to a new internal design that’s optimized for dissipating heat.
On Geekbench, which measures overall performance, the iPhone 14 Plus scored 1,727 in single-core and 4,553 in multicore. That’s just slightly higher than the iPhone 13 (1,668/4,436) but well above the Galaxy S22 Plus (1,204/3,348).
We saw a bigger boost in graphics performance, where the iPhone 14 Plus turned in a score of 11,531 and 69 frames per second on 3DMark Wild Life Unlimited. The iPhone 13 pro specs mustered 9.331 and 51 fps. The Galaxy S22 Plus was behind once again at 9,976/59 fps.
We didn’t see an improvement in our video editing test, which involves transcoding a 4K video clip to 1080p in the Adobe Premiere Rush app. It took the iPhone 14 Plus 28 seconds compared to a slightly faster 25.9 seconds for the iPhone 13. Still, the Galaxy S22 Plus needed 47 seconds.
iPhone 14 Plus price in Pakistan and review: Battery life and charging
We’re still in the middle of our battery testing for the iPhone 14 plus, but in general, it had enough juice to last us through a day of shooting photos, video, and downloading apps and games. After starting at 8 am and using the phone regularly for several hours, we had 28% left at 8 pm. This was over Wi-Fi and 5G.
The iPhone 14 Plus sticks with 20W charging, so our charge time results are not surprising. The phone reached 54% in 30 minutes, which is a bit better than Apple’s 50% claim. And we got to 25% in 15 minutes. iPhone pro max
In contrast, the OnePlus 10T can reach 84% charge in 15 minutes and 100% charge in just 20 minutes via its 150W charging system (though charge speeds are slower in the U.S.). And the Galaxy S22 got to 60% in 30 minutes with its 25W charger.
iPhone 14 Plus review: Emergency SOS via satellite and crash detection
Later this fall Apple will launch two key safety features for the iPhone 14 plus. The first is Emergency SOS via satellite, which combines new antennas and software to connect to satellites when you can’t get a cellular or Wi-Fi signal. You’ll then get help from emergency services to your location.
During a demo, the iPhone 14 plus locked onto a satellite quickly, and the phone walks you through a series of questions so Apple can tell dispatchers everything they know about your condition and exact location.
The second safety feature is crash detection, which leverages the iPhone 14 plus an improved accelerometer and gyroscope to detect whether you’re in a car crash. From there, it can automatically dial emergency services, as well as notify the emergency contacts you designate.
iPhone 14 plus: iOS 16
The iPhone 14 Pro Max runs iOS 16 by default, and there’s a lot to like in this new software update. You can customize the lock screen with widgets, photos, and more. Other highlights include the ability to un-send texts and edit them, a replacement for passwords called Passkeys, a new Fitness app, and (finally) the return of the battery percentage indicator.
Later this year iCloud Shared Photo Library will make it easier to share photos with family members. And Live Activities are coming from developers, which will make the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro better by showing things like sports scores and the real-time progress of your food order or rideshare.
iPhone 14 plus price in Pakistan: Verdict
The iPhone 14 Plus is the best iPhone for most people, but despite that, it’s not that exciting. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max get the biggest upgrades this year, including always-on displays, a clever replacement for the notch, and a 48MP main camera.
Still, there’s a lot to like for $899. The iPhone 14 Plus delivers fantastic-looking photos and video; the display is stellar, and you get performance that still beats the best Android phones. Action mode is another plus if you’re looking for a super smooth video.
If you’re not wedded to iOS, Samsung’s Galaxy S22 Plus is better in some ways, as it offers both a telephoto zoom lens and 120Hz display — two features Apple reserves for its Pro models. But the S22’s cameras and performance aren’t quite as good as the iPhone 14 plus.
If you want longer battery life and a bigger display, you might want to wait for the $899 iPhone 14 Plus, but overall the iPhone 14 is great — yet safe — choice.
