In recent months, rumors about the latest iPhone version kept popping up. yes! It is said that Apple will introduce several updates for the iPhone 14 series. The allegations made by many leakers have become wild balls, some are right and some are wrong.
However, regardless of some rumors circulating on the internet, the announcement that Apple has just officially launched the iPhone 14 series has huge implications. yes! We can find this on two non-Pro models, the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus.
First, the iPhone 14 with a 6.1-inch screen is the smallest and cheapest option. Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Plus comes with a 6.7-inch screen. Meanwhile, the Plus model has the best battery in the iPhone series ever, including the iPhone 14 Pro model.
We promise users up to 26 hours of watching on iPhone 14 Plus. Meanwhile, if you use the same on iPhone 14, it will only take 20 hours. The additional size also allows Apple to upgrade the cooling system to deliver better performance.
Then, how about a kitchen spur? yes! Apple is still incorporating the same chipset from last year, the Apple A15, into the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus. However, one thing to note is that this chipset is a version with a five-core GPU, like the one in the iPhone 13 Pro.
Although last year’s chipset was used, it will provide an 18% increase in graphics performance. This chipset also has advantages in processing power, so it is claimed that it still has superior performance compared to the leading Android smartphones.
Some of this processing power is attributed to the improved camera quality. The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus still use a 12MP camera. The main camera uses a larger sensor with a size of 1.9 µm (up from 1.7 µm) and an aperture of f/1.5.
The end result is that it captures 49% more light than the iPhone 13 camera. This is just a hardware advantage over last year’s model. Software processing provides what Apple calls the Optical Engine.
yes! Apple has also confirmed that this photonic engine is based on Deep Fusion. In addition, the Photonic Engine significantly improves low-light photos – compared to the iPhone 13 and Apple promises twice as much on the front camera, 2x on the ultra-wide camera, and 2.5x on the new main camera.
The latest is Action Mode, which acts like an action camera – it offers better stability so users don’t need a gimbal anymore, and it supports Dolby Vision HDR video shooting. The camera still has a maximum resolution of 4K (60fps).
This pair of iPhone 14 still uses the curvy design of the TrueDepth camera, but it now has autofocus. Hardware upgrades allow it to capture 38% more light for better low-light performance, thanks in part to its f/1.9 aperture (up from f/2.2).
Now we move on to the communication sector. yes! The technology giant from the United States, led by Tim Cook, presented two surprises when he introduced the iPhone 14 series, especially the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, by installing the satellite feature and the iPhone’s own electronic chip.
Satellite features require a new custom hardware design and software. This allows the device to send messages to the satellite without a bulky antenna. This service is text only and will be used mostly for emergencies.
However, this feature supports two-way communication so that users are notified when a rescue operation is on its way. The Find My app can also share the device owner’s location with friends so they can monitor it.
Users can write custom messages to explain the current situation, but when speed saves lives, some specially crafted questions will allow users to send out a detailed distress in just a few clicks.
In locations with clear views of the sky, messages can be sent in about 15 seconds, but if there are trees above them, it can take a few minutes. The satellite service will be launched in November for users in the United States and Canada.
As for the eSIM-only iPhone, it only applies to the United States. Apple is also touting the ability to quickly switch between multiple eSIMs and add carriers without visiting one of its offices.
iPhone 14 and 14 Plus pre-order offers start from September 9th. iPhone 14 has the same price as its predecessor, starting at $800 and will be available on September 16th. iPhone 14 Plus starts at $900 (Rs 13.4 million) and will be available on October 7.
