Apple unveiled its iPhone 14 lineup on Wednesday at an event called “Far Out.” Additionally, Apple is exhibiting updated models of the Apple Watch and AirPods.
The occasion follows an important iPhone milestone, which was broadcast from Apple Park, the company’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino, California: The product recently reached 50% market share in the US, according to Counterpoint Research. In addition, apple’s all-time record of 237.9 million iPhones was shipped last year.
Here is a list of everything that was revealed at the Far Out event:
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
Apple unveiled the new iPhone 14 series, the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The display sizes for the base iPhone 14 models are now 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches.
Beginning on September 16, the iPhone 14 will cost $1099. Starting at $1249, the iPhone 14 Plus will go on sale on October 7. Both are available for pre-order starting on September 9.
A new front camera with autofocus is one of the unique features of the iPhone 14. It has an improved camera technology that can take photographs in any lighting. Additionally, the camera has an Action mode for extra smooth videos.
The iPhone’s battery life is so far the best Apple has to offer. The new series also has crash detection and the Emergency SOS via Satellite service powered by an A15 bionic chip.
Five colours are available for the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus: midnight, starlight, blue, purple, and red.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
The iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max come with the new A16 bionic chip.
The always-on display dims the wallpaper for a lock screen with information that is easily accessible. On top of the display is a brand-new “dynamic island” that is interactive and pops up alerts, messages, and activities.
The devices also have the best iPhone camera technology to date. A quad-pixel sensor, or the equivalent of four professional lenses, is present in the 48-megapixel camera.
In addition, the A16 bionic chip examines and optimizes each pixel, capturing 4 times as much information as previously. Now, a 48-megapixel raw image may be taken by a skilled photographer.
Additionally, the camera has a brand-new Action mode with gimbal-like stability. It provides 24 frames per second recording and 4k resolution video.
The Pro 14 Pro starts at $999, while the Pro Max starts at $1099. On September 9, they will be pre-orderable, and on September 16, they will begin shipping.
This year’s iPhone 14 Pro models come in four colours. They range in deep purple, silver, gold, and space black.
AirPods Pro 2
The new AirPods have a six-hour optimum listening time and a 30-hour maximum listening time when used with the charging case.
They cost $329, are available to order from September 9 and will ship by September 23.
Apple New Watch Series
This year, Apple introduced three Apple Watch models.
Three years ago, Apple updated the Watch to include menstrual cycle tracking. As of right now, the Apple Watch Series 8 offers a variety of sophisticated cycle tracking functions, including useful data regarding ovulation, a crucial component of women’s health.
Crash detection is another feature of the Series 8. It will immediately contact you with emergency services if it detects a car crash.
The watch’s battery life is still 18 hours. However, now that it has a low-power mode, you can get 36 hours of battery life from a single charge.
The Series 8 starts from $529. Orders placed now will be shipped on September 16.
The new Apple Watch SE 2 offers all the core benefits of an Apple Watch. That now includes crash detection. It’s available in silver, midnight and starlight. It’s price starting from $329. It’s available to order now and will ship on September 16.
All of the essential features of an Apple Watch are included in the new Apple Watch SE 2. A new addition is the crash detection feature. In addition, the new series comes in three colours: silver, midnight, and starlight.
The popular wearable from Apple comes in a larger, more robust version called the Apple Watch Ultra.
It competes with Garmin’s high-end robust watches at a higher price range. Despite the Apple Watch’s longstanding dominance in the smartwatch and wearables categories, Garmin is the market leader for smartwatches.
The price of the Apple Watch Ultra starts from $1099. Orders placed now will be shipped on September 23.
