Having watched the interesting launch of new devices from Apple, we can only say that the Pro models of the 14 lineups are the interesting ones. See, they are packed with new chips (4nm A16 Bionic), which are ahead of the industry by far, and will take a while for the competition to catch up on, improved displays with that ‘Dynamic Island’ pill-shaped notch – which is also supported by a lot of UI and software elements/features, not to mention better cameras – with a 48 MP main shooter. This is the first time we have seen Apple bump up the megapixel count on its phones.
There are other key features, such as the transition to eSIM, an Always-On-Display, satellite connectivity (not the first phone to do so in the current era – the Huawei Mate 50 did so first), crash detection (also available on the Apple Watch Series 8), and iOS 16.
That aside, here are the rest of the 14 Pro’s specs:

The pricing part is very interesting. The iPhone 14 Pro starts from $999, while the Plus model starts from $1099.
iPhones are also not sold in Kenya, at least officially. However, there are many third-party retailers who bring the devices here. Their markups are often extremely high, and a device can be sold twice its USA price, so you should take note of that. Devices also shipped into Kenya also attract additional taxes nowadays, so that is another consideration to remember.
