The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Plus will be made launched in the coming weeks.
Apple is accepting preorders for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max from September 9 onwards. The models will be shipped starting September 16. The iPhone 14 Plus follows on October 7.
The prices are higher than the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 starts at €1019, while the iPhone 13 initially cost €909. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max cost €1329 and €1479 respectively, while iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max were priced at €1159 and €1259 after launch.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
Apple didn’t release a mini model this year. The cheapest and smallest variant is the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, followed by the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus. According to Apple, the Plus has the best battery life of all iPhones released up until this point.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus run on an A15 Bionic chipset. Apple used the same processor for last year’s iPhone 13. The tech giant typically opts for a new chipset every year, but the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are an exception to the rule.
The cameras were updated. The back of both models features a new ultra-wide-angle camera and 12-megapixel main camera. According to Apple, low-light image quality was improved by 49 percent. The front of both models includes a 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera with autofocus.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
The difference between the regular versions and Pro versions is greater than last year. Apple described the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max as the most innovative Pro lineup to date. Both models run on an A16 Bionic chipset with six cores.
The Pro models are the first iPhones with 48-megapixel cameras. In addition to the main camera, the devices feature an ultra-wide-angle and telelens camera. According to Apple, low-light image quality was improved by 200 percent to 300 percent.
Although the displays have the same sizes as the normal versions (6.1 inches and 6.7 inches), the introduction of ‘Dynamic Island’ provides more screen space for apps. The new feature shows parts of the traditional interface in a small section at the top of the screen, as illustrated below. The feature makes Pro models feel larger than they actually are.
Each model supports iOS 16. The new operating system will be available from September 12 onwards. One of the biggest changes is the new lock screen. Users have more control over the widgets on display.
The new Live Activities feature makes it possible to follow live events without unlocking the phone. Events can be anything from a soccer match to an election, and updates are shown on the lock screen. The operating system also introduces Passkeys, a more secure alternative to passwords.
Furthermore, iOS 16 focuses on individual apps, including Messages, Mail and Photos. Photos has a new feature that automatically cuts people, animals and objects from photos. Messages allows users to edit and delete sent messages. Mail now supports email scheduling.
Accelerometer and satellite communications
All new iPhones are equipped with an accelerometer. The addition allows the models to detect car accidents. The iPhones can autonomously call emergency services when a user is no longer able to operate his or her smartphone.
In addition, users in the United States and Canada can send emergency notifications on a satellite network. The feature allows users to share their locations without an Internet connection. Apple did not confirm if and when the feature becomes available internationally.
