The yellow iPhone 14 is here – and we can’t decide if it’s great or terrible

Apple welcomes a yellow iPhone back to the fold of the smartphone color spectrum. On Tuesday, Apple surprised no one by unveiling its new yellow iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, adding a bright spectrum of colors to our list of the best smartphones.

The canary yellow frame is reminiscent of the yellow last seen on the iPhone 11 and even that iconic iPhone 5c. It’s bold, but not necessarily brash. It’s also not coming to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

As I wrote in my reviews of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, these are some excellent iOS devices that didn’t raise the bar in terms of design. Both phones still have the notch instead of the new Dynamic Island. They also use the previous generation A15 Bionic CPU. They’re still excellent handsets with a solid 12MP dual camera array and the excellent 12MP TrueDepth front camera.

Perhaps this new color, which combines midnight, starlight, (Product)RED, blue and purple as a color variation, is the extra spark the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus need to be just a little more inspiring.
