Talking about the design, it will be preferable for you to think of it as two models that each come in two different sizes. The iPhone mini has been discontinued, and as Apple would like to say, have big or bigger. The iPhone 14, or as many may call it the entry-level iPhone has a 6.1 screen size. And with the new addition in the family of iPhone 14 Plus, this model has a display of 6.7in.
Between the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus, not a lot of things have changed talking in the terms of design. Both the phones also look strikingly similar to the iPhone 13 and come in five colours: Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple and Red.
The iPhone 14 Pro has dropped it’s most spoken about selfie-camera notch and have instead replaced it with a pill-shaped cut-out called as the Dynamic Island. Dynamic Island will expand to show alerts and any other background activity.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus come with a new 12MP main camera that has a bigger sensor than their previous versions. The front camera is also 12MP and it helps to add autofocus for the first time and also has a faster lens which gives better low-light performance.
