Maybe you are planning to buy a new iPhone 14 and wondering if you can still use your iPhone 13 case with it. Unfortunately, for most models, the answer is a hard “no,” thanks to some subtle differences.
But maybe you can get away with it a fashion model. For everyone else, buy a new cover or try going without (go ahead, test that ceramic shield).
Why your iPhone 13 case won’t quite fits your iPhone 14 series handset
Apple’s new iPhone 14 series includes two standard models and two pro models. There are two 6.1-inch screens in iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro and two 6.7-inch screens in iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Since these are the same screen sizes as the iPhone 13 series, shouldn’t your old case fit? Well no. Mostly not. Let’s look at the little details that will force you to spend more money.
Detailed technical specifications for the iPhone 14 series can be found here.
Default iPhone 14 vs iPhone 13
This is your best chance at perhaps getting away with the proverbial beautiful but ill-fitting jacket for your handset.
Cupertino’s new base model iPhone 14 has slightly different dimensions than its predecessor. iPhone 14 is a tad deeper than iPhone 13. It’s less than a millimeter difference in thickness. Height and width match.
