Apple releases the iPhone 14 Plus
The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus also appeared on the list Apple announced today. These devices will retain much of the iPhone 13’s design, including the previous generation’s A15 Bionic chipset. This year, there is no mini option, so your options are vast, even bigger. The US version of the iPhone 14 also omits the traditional SIM card tray, replacing it with an eSIM.
Both versions are said to support Emergency SOS, the Reported Emergency Communications System, which uses satellite communications to send messages regardless of whether cellular signals are unavailable. Satellite frequencies can communicate using telephone antennas. The user interface instructs users to point their phones in the appropriate direction and talk to them through a process to communicate with emergency service providers. According to Apple, it can take as little as 15 seconds to send a clearly visible message. The Find My app can also be used to connect a location without sending a message. iPhone 14 models are free for two years.
The iPhone 14’s screen size remains the same at 6.1 inches, while the 14 Plus has a whopping 6.7 inches. Apple revealed that the 14 Plus model has the longest battery life of any iPhone. Both models still retain last year’s A15 Bionic chipset, which is unusual for Apple, which typically releases a new processor every year for its iPhone lineup.
The camera front features a new ultra-wide 12MP main camera with f/1.5 aperture and sensor-based stabilization. Apple reports a 49 percent improvement in image quality in low light, and night mode is now twice as fast. A new 12MP TrueDepth camera with front focus is also available. Apple claims it will apply its “optical engine” technology faster in the image pipeline, which improves color rendering and low-light performance. Motion Option, a new stabilization mode for video recording, uses the entire sensor to provide gimbal-like stabilization.
The release of the iPhone 14 coincides with a unique season when prices are rising on everything including consumer technology and households are on tight budgets. Google has launched a PR campaign to embarrass Apple with its open messaging standards. Although it has struggled to sell a small iPhone for the past few years, the company now has to admit that Americans simply don’t want one. Apple’s annual iPhone release at its gleaming Silicon Valley factory is under intense pressure.
The base iPhone 14 model starts at $799 and the 14 Plus model starts at $899. Pre-orders will be available starting September 9th; the regular 14 will ship on September 16th, and the 14 Plus will start shipping on October 7th.
