Apple’s next-generation iPhones, the iPhone 14 series and iPhone 14 Pro series, were unveiled during the company’s highly-anticipated “Far Out” event yesterday. The Cupertino company has officially discontinued the iPhone mini line, with the iPhone 14 Plus succeeding the iPhone 13 tiny that was released the year before.
Apple made several major updates to the Pro line, including a revamped display, improved connection, and a new “Dynamic Island.” The newest iPhone from Apple, the iPhone 14, has been officially unveiled. When compared to the iPhone 13, the standard model is a slight upgrade, but the iPhone 14 Pro versions have seen some significant and intriguing modifications that are guaranteed to attract a lot of customers.
Apple has also unveiled a new iPhone 14 Plus model, which replaces the iPhone mini. Apple has ceased production of the iPhone 11 series alongside the release of the new iPhones. Discover everything there is to know about Apple’s brand new iPhone 14 series right here.
iPhone 14 And iPhone 14 Plus Launched
Apple has adopted the punch-hole display technology with the release of the iPhone 14 Pro models. Most Android phones have been using this layout for some time, and now it’s showing up on iPhones as well. The normal iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus model, however, continue Apple to use the same older, broader notch design found in the iPhone 13 series.
The gadgets will be available in five distinct hues: black, white, blue, purple, and product red. The good news is that the new iPhone 14 Plus model offers a larger screen and larger battery at a lesser price. The standard iPhone 14 has a 6.1-inch display. while the Plus model and the iPhone Pro Max both provide a 6.7-inch display.
The OLED displays on these devices can reach peak brightness levels of up to 200 units and are compatible with the Dolby Vision format. The A15 Bionic processor used in last year’s iPhones is present in this year’s devices as well. Both handsets include a dual camera arrangement on the back, however, the primary camera has been upgraded to 12 megapixels and features a bigger sensor and larger, 1.9 m pixels. OIS functionality is supported.
Apple claims that the new gadgets are 49 percent more usable in dim conditions than their predecessors. Better low-light images are now possible thanks to this new feature, made possible by the Photonic Engine’s improved image processing. Additionally, the business claims that the Night mode’s exposure time has been reduced by half.
A 12-megapixel camera is again there up front, but this time it can work in tandem with the rear-facing TrueDepth camera to provide faster focus times in low light. A new video action mode is now available, which makes use of the whole sensor with “overscan” and “roll correction” to provide more stable footage. The 14th-generation iPhone has built-in accident detection and satellite connectivity.
The latter function is fantastic since it allows people to contact rescuers even when they are not in range of a network. Your iPhone can automatically locate a satellite in the sky, but doing so requires being outside. Your iPhone will be able to send its location once it establishes a connection. Emergency SOS via Satellite is Apple’s name for this function; it will be included with the iPhone 14 at no additional cost for a limited time (two years).
In the beginning, it will be sold in places like the United States and Canada. The rollout to additional territories is scheduled for the month of November. The iPhone 14 begins at $799, which is roughly Rs 63,650 in India. Costing $899, the iPhone 14 Plus is not cheap (around Rs 71,610). The iPhone 14 starts at Rs 79,900 in India while the iPhone 14 Plus starts at Rs 89,900. Both models are available for purchase at apple.com and Apple Authorized Resellers.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max: Launched
Now let’s talk about Apple’s latest flagship smartphones, the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max. Compared to the base iPhone 14, the XS and XS Max include a number of interesting new features, including the innovative new Dynamic Island, a new 48MP primary camera, and an upgraded display. First off, the display on both the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max is Apple’s Super Retina XDR display with support for the Pro Motion (dynamic refresh rate) function.
This year, though, Apple has included Always-on Display (AOD) compatibility that doesn’t compromise battery life. In addition, the screen’s brightness may be increased to a whopping 2,000 nits in broad sunlight. Apple’s new “Pro camera system” contains a primary camera with 48 megapixels, making the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max the first iPhones to include such a high-resolution camera.
The primary camera has a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. The primary camera takes advantage of Apple’s Deep Fusion image processing system to capture sharp shots in low light and also supports the new sensor-shift technology. The front-facing 12-megapixel camera is the same as that found on the iPhone 14’s more affordable sibling, the iPhone 14s.
In addition to this, there is the brand-new Dynamic Island, which I have been praising for some time. It has to do with the new pill-shaped cutout on the screen of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. To answer your question, the famed notch is absent from the latest Pro models. Instead, Apple has reduced all of the Face ID sensors and cameras down into a pill-shaped cutout that has its own set of functionality.
An interactive multitasking UI, the pill-shaped Face ID cutout on the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max features unique animations that change depending on the screen’s current content. Apple has virtually made the screen cutout for the camera, a feature seen on several Android phones before, into an active part of the display on the new iPhone 14 Pro. It’s a neat addition to the new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, and it has the potential to be a major USP (Unique Selling Point).
