7 September 2022, 13:37:34

Apple unveiled the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro MaxThe wait is over. Apple has finally unveiled the much anticipated iPhone 14 series running on the new iOS 16. This year's series comprises four models - a vanilla one, Plus, Pro, and Pro Max. The US-bound models from now on will no longer has a SIM tray and physical SIM. They will use eSIM only. Let's start with the vanilla iPhone 14. This smartphone does not offer anything major new compared to the iPhone 13. Improved sensors, video shooting modes, and other features comprise the "new" in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus compared to the previous generation. It is built around a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with an oleophobic coating, ceramic shield, and haptic touch. It offers 800 nits of HBM and 1200 nits of peak brightness along with HDR10 and Dolby Vision certification. The resolution is 1170 x 2532 pixels. The model is based on the A15 Bionic chip, which is manufactured after the 5nm production node with nearly 15 billion transistors. It houses a 6-core CPU with 2 high-performance and 4 high-efficiency cores. There's a 5-core GPU and a 16-core Neural Engine. The main camera of the device uses a 12MP sensor with 1.7 um pixels, an f/1.6 aperture, 26 mm focal length, 7-element lens, 100% Focus Pixels. It also offers advanced video features such as Rack Focus in Cinematic Mode which locks the focus on a moving object. Cinematic Mode shoots in Dolby Vision HDR. There's a 12MP ultra-wide snapper adjoining the main one with a 120-degree FoV and an f/1.8 aperture. On the front, there's a 12MP selfie camera adjoined by an SL 3D biometrics sensor. A new feature here is the autofocus. The iPhone 14 Plus offers the same specifications as the vanilla model with one exception - the display is bigger with a slightly higher resolution. More specifically, the Plus version has a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display with an oleophobic coating, ceramic shield, and haptic touch. It offers the same 800 nits of HBM and 1200 nits of peak brightness along with HDR10 and Dolby Vision certification. The resolution of the Plus version is 1284 x 2778 pixels. Battery details remain, as usual, obscure. The Plus model offers the best battery life on an iPhone so far. The iPhone 14 starts from USD 799. The iPhone 14 Plus starts from USD 899. The iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max are Apple's smartphones for this year which offer something new. The differences between the two models are again in the size of the display with the Pro version offering a 6.1-inch diagonal size, while the Pro Max offers a 6.7-inch diagonal size. All else is the same. They use Super Retina XDR OLED displays with a 120Hz refresh rate, 1600 nits of HBM, and 2000 nits of peak brightness. In addition to the increased refresh rate, the Pro and Pro Max offer for the first time on an iPhone a big resolution sensor. The main camera on both models uses a 48MP sensor with an f/1.6 lens. It is adjoined by a 12MP ultra-wide unit and a 12MP telephoto camera with OIS, PDAF, and 2x optical zoom. All three cameras are aided by a Photonic Engine with second-generation sensor-shit OIS. The selfie camera resides in the so-called Dynamic Island that changes its shape and size depending on the type of notifications you receive and what activities are running on the background. It is also completely interactive. For the first time, the proximity sensor is placed entirely under the display. Another major upgrade is the usage of the Apple A16 Bionic chip built on the 4 nm process. It uses a 6-core CPU, a 5-core GPU, a new Display Engine, and a new 16-core Neural Engine. Again, battery life is mentioned as an "all-day" one. The iPhone 14 Pro starts at USD 999 and the iPhone 14 Pro starts at USD 1099. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 9, with availability beginning Friday, September 16.
