iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro will share one and the same novelty: the satellite connection.
A presentation as fast as the “processor speed” of the iPhone 14. Apple has never sent the presentation of a new iPhone so quickly, proof of this is the lack of novelties in this new model.
Two copies of the mid-range iPhone are expected for this fall: a 6.1″ model, the iPhone 14, and a 6.7″ phone, the iPhone 14 Plus. Back to basics, therefore, for the naming of Apple smartphones, since this refers us to the old iPhones, from the iPhone 6 to the iPhone 8.
On the new side, Apple has not really trodden. The battery is now announced to last all day, and the processor remains the same as on the iPhone 13 pro, the A15 Bionic chip, with 5 cores for the GPU, 6 cores for the CPU and a Neural Engine of 16 cores. Lots of numbers to say one thing: the iPhone 14 is just as powerful as the iPhone 13 Pro.
The camera has also improved, with Night mode 2x more accurate with the phone’s various cameras. Autofocus is also part of the front camera. The main sensors finally go to 12MP, both front and rear. A new algorithm, called Photonic Engine, improves the quality of low-light photos.
But where Apple stands out across its entire range is with the compatibility of its phones with the satellite network. From now on, if you were to find yourself in a delicate position without a cellular network, the iPhone will be able to contact the emergency services thanks to the satellite network. Sending a message is also possible with the halving of the weight of sms, while with the Locate application, you will be able to know where you are in the woods without having a network!
But as with Apple, good news hides bad news, this connection to the satellite network will only be available in the United States and Canada at first. It also seems to be paying, since Apple announces two years of free with the purchase of an iPhone 14.
In terms of prices, Apple indicates a price of $799 for the iPhone 14, and $899 for the iPhone 14 Plus. Pre-orders open this Friday and availability is as follows: September 16 for the iPhone 14, and October 7 for the iPhone 14 Plus.
A brand new phone: the iPhone 14 Pro
In the wake of the presentation of the iPhone 14, Apple unveiled its brand new iPhone 14 Pro. A new notch, new processor, Apple has been very generous.
The notch has finally disappeared in favor of a long pill. With a system called Dynamic Island, this pill interacts with the various notifications that appear on the screen. Battery of the AirPods or the Watch, results of a match or even muting the device, this pill is ultra-intelligent.
On the power side, the iPhone 14 Pro has a brand new A16 Bionic chip. The CPU thus goes to 6 cores, in order to improve the computing power of the iPhone 14 Pro. She dwells on three important aspects of the iPhone 14 Pro: power, screen and photos. The 16 billion transistors and the chip, built on 4 nm, also improve the power of this new iPhone.
The screen also gets its share of new features. In addition to this pill, the iPhone 14 Pro now acquires an Always-On mode, like on Apple Watch. With reduced battery consumption and lower brightness, iPhone continues to show the time and notifications. The screen is finally brighter, capable of reaching 2,000 nits of brightness outdoors.
On the photo side, the iPhone 14 Pro is better in everything compared to the 13 Pro. Better photos in low light, ProRaw with 48Mp of resolution or a flash composed of 9 LEDs capable of taking very bright photos in the dark, Apple has done well.
In terms of the colors available, Apple has revised the formula, with four models: Space Black, Silver, Gold and Deep Purple. The iPhone 14 Pro will cost $999, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max is priced at $1,099. Both are pre-orderable from Friday, and will be available for purchase on September 16.
