Apple unveils its iPhone 14, here are the main new features of these smartphones

Apple used its annual presentation in September, its famous Keynote, to reveal the new iPhone models. Just like last year, we are entitled to 4 models, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Here are the key new features to remember from these smartphones.

Fans of the apple brand always look forward to the month of September as it is synonymous with the unveiling of new Apple products.

We thus discovered the new Apple Watch and AirPods Pro 2.

But the flagship that everyone was waiting for with the most impatience is obviously the new iPhone!

Tim Cook and his gang have finally introduced us to the iPhone 14 and the new features these new phones will bring.

Similar to the iPhone 13, the new iPhone 14 will be available in five colors: blue, purple, black, white and red.

The main new features of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

Let’s start with the main new devices, let’s say more entry-level, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

To our great surprise, we do not find a new processor, while we remain on the A15 Bionic chip from last year.

Regarding the screen, they are slightly improved, while we are entitled to a 6.1 inch screen for the iPhone 14 and 6.7 inches for the iPhone 14 Plus.

On the side of the cameras, there is also fearful news.

The main camera remains a 12 MP sensor, but with a better lens opening to capture more light.

The same applies to the front camera, which also has the right to autofocus for better clarity during our selfies.

iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will also be equipped with a new artificial intelligence called Photonic Engine to highlight the light in darker surroundings.

As for the video, we will be entitled to more stability with an action mode to reduce shocks when we are in motion.

On the connectivity side, the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will offer eSIM compatibility. The American models will see themselves completely removing the possibility of inserting a SIM card there in the absence of a slot to do so.

But the main novelty of this iPhone 14 and 14 Plus is the integration of emergency calls via satellite. In a situation where you no longer have access to a mobile network, you can still send calls to the authorities via satellite. This service will be offered from November 2022 and will be free for 2 years.

As for the video, we will be entitled to more stability with an action mode to reduce shocks when we are in motion.

The big news of the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus is the integration of emergency calls via satellite.

Still on the emergency side, these new iPhones will also be eligible for accident detection technology like on the Apple Watch 8. Via a new accelerometer and a more accurate gyroscope, our iPhone can detect a car accident and automatically call the authorities. .

In terms of battery life, Apple remained vague by not revealing any numbers and simply saying an autonomy for the whole day. It therefore becomes necessary to have it in hand to get a real idea.

Although these two models are what could be described as entry-level, it is a fact that the devices are expensive. Apple is asking for a starting price of $1099 for the iPhone 14, then $1249 for the iPhone 14 Plus.

The iPhone 14 will be available on September 16 and the iPhone 14 Plus on October 7.

The main new features of iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

Now let’s move on to Apple’s high-end models, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, which receive the same new features as the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, but of course even more.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro max are notably improved with an A16 Bionic chip for more performance, but the most important news is what Apple calls the Dynamic Island.

If many expected the disappearance of the black notch at the top of the screen, it remains present in the form of a cylinder detached from the top of the device’s frame, hence the name the island.

This new notch now offers animations that provide quick access to the functions of our applications by simply tapping them.

Although mixed, the notch does not disappear from the new iPhone models, but instead becomes cylindrical.

The 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens are also improved in terms of brightness, while Apple talks about a quality similar to its Pro XDR screens.

If we turn to the side of the cameras, we now have a 48Mpx quad pixel main sensor that allows us to capture 2X more light than on previous models. We also get a new 2x telephoto lens.

In addition, fans of ProRAW mode will also be able to benefit from this new 48 Mpx sensor.

The flash is also enhanced via the A16 Bionic chip, which can automatically adjust its brightness based on ambient light.

Finally, the cinematic mode that was introduced last year has also been improved to be used when shooting in 4K / 30 FPS.

Like the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, Apple was very vague about battery life, again mentioning all-day battery life.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will be available from September 16, and their starting prices will be $1399 and $1549, respectively.
