After many rumors, Apple announced its new iPhone 14 series, with some relatively interesting changes.
Here’s everything you need to know.
The iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus
The iPhone 14 goes for big…in physical dimensions. 6.1″ for iPhone 14 and 6.7″ for iPhone Plus. Both have a brightness of 1200 nits and a ceramic screen protector and they come in five new colors.
The issue of brightness in the new devices is something that will also return in the pro versions and Apple has increased the numbers significantly.
Of course, we will get the A15 processor here, which also brings improvements to the camera, especially when shooting in low light and challenging lighting.
The main camera is 12 megapixels with an aperture of 1.5. The camera will bring better results in night shots and an ultra-wide camera for wide shots. The front camera is 12 megapixels with automatic focus found for the first time in iPhone devices.
no sim! At least in the US. Apple announces the complete removal of the SIM and the use of eSim only. Bad news for those who import devices from the US. Furthermore, it is expected that the other companies will also align and we will see more devices from different companies without a SIM at all.
And here is what Apple hinted at in their order – support for satellite communication.
In emergency situations, Apple integrates satellite communication for SOS modes. You will no longer need to purchase an expensive dedicated satellite device. Apple has developed an option where you can communicate with the satellites through hardware and software that will allow you to direct the device to the right place.
iPhone 14 Plus $899
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
And here come the pro models. Apple calls it Dynamic Island. why? You’ll see.
The new gap will mark you with notifications. For example, a notification that something is playing. Apple calls it “island”.
Instead of the gap, you will find animations in the dynamic island. Notifications will use their black background to show you as if notifications are whole and not cut. Clicking on the animation will open a notification bubble. For example a navigation bubble.
The iPhones come in two sizes 6.1 and 6.7 inches with 1600 and 2000 nits! Huge brightness for its screens and Super Retina XDR screens.
The AOD screen continues to allow you data on the screen in sleep mode. Incorporating low-sampling technology to enable better battery utilization. The iPhones will run the A16 Bionic processor with 16 billion transistors.
The 48-megapixel camera is the main camera which has 2x better dark shooting capabilities than the previous camera. The photos come out brighter.
The 12-megapixel telephoto camera can zoom X2 with accurate bokeh. Photography in ProRaw with a quality of 48 megapixels Super wide and sharp lens with a quality of 12 megapixels.
In terms of video shots, 4K shooting at 24 frames per second. An option that was missing for filmmakers on the previous iPhone.
$999 for the Pro model
$1099 for the Pro Max model
The regular iPhone 14 Pro looks great, too, but the iPhone 14 Pro Max is your best bet if you prefer a larger display and longer battery life.
