MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

If you want the smallest and most affordable iPhone flagship, the iPhone 14 is what you want to buy. There is no iPhone 14 mini. The iPhone 14 Plus offers the same features with a larger display, so that would be your consideration if a big screen is important to you.

If you often work or travel in remote locations in the US and Canada without terrestrial cellular service, both iPhone 14 and 14 Plus offer emergency SOS via satellite connectivity, and that might come in handy some day. Pre-order starts from September 7; the iPhone 14 ships from September 16, while iPhone 14 Plus ships from October 7.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation based on the specifications of the device and a general guide to help you understand how much value a device offers for its price. It is not an endorsement of the device. Ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device; MobilityArena takes no responsibility for your buying decisions.
