iPhone 14 Stories Today

I’ve said before that I was unlikely to use the iPhone 14 Pro 48MP resolution personally, and indeed I stuck to 12MP during a recent trip. But I was of course still curious to see how much of a difference the megapixel count makes in real-world photos.

My tests did lead me to change my mind to a small extent – so now I’d say that I’d expect to use the 48MP capability on extremely rare occasions, rather than never …

It’s not a fair fight, of course. The iPhone 14 has to do it all, while the GoPro only has to do one thing well – but it’s still interesting to see where the iPhone held up against the competition, and where it didn’t …

iPhone 14 Pro camera review

It’s official: The iPhone 14 Pro camera is now good enough for me to use it as my only travel camera – something I couldn’t have even imagined five years ago.

I’d already made the switch from a heavy and cumbersome pro-body DSLR system to a much lighter and more portable mirrorless camera when travelling, but switching to an iPhone had still felt like an enormous step.

iPhone 14 Stories September 23

Let’s talk pixels. Specifically, iPhone 14 pixels. More specifically, iPhone 14 Pro pixels. Because while the headline news is that the latest Pro models offer a 48MP sensor instead of a 12MP one, that’s not actually the most important improvement Apple has made to this year’s camera.

Indeed, of the four biggest changes this year, the 48MP sensor is to me the least important. But bear with me here, as there’s a lot we need to unpack before I can explain why I think the 48MP sensor is far less important than:

It turns out, though, there’s a hidden way to try a black-and-white always-on display on your iPhone …
