The wait is over and now Apple enthusiasts, pundits and potential iPhone buyers can finally put the speculation to rest.
The iPhone 14 line has finally unveiled the latest edition of Apple’s bestsellers at the Apple Event on September 7.
Here we take a look at Apple’s latest mobile devices.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
After a year of speculation, Apple has moved on with the removal of the mini iPhone devices.
Instead, it’s replaced by the exact opposite of its size – the iPhone Plus, formerly iPhone 14 Max.
The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have the same physical characteristics as the iPhone 13 model.
The main difference between the two is size, as the latest model measures 6.7 inches compared to the entry-level 6.1 inches.
The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus feature an impressive camera system with new rear and front TrueDepth cameras.
The phones also feature an updated ultra-wide camera with up to 2x TrueDepth.
The devices use a photonics engine, an enhanced image pipeline to improve the quality of captured images.
In addition, the camera includes a new action mode that allows users to record videos with greater stability, especially while running.
The additions of Crash Detection and Emergency SOS are two of the most important features of the iPhone 14 line.
Like the new Apple Watches, iPhones feature a dual-core accelerometer capable of taking G-force readings of up to 256G with a new high dynamic range gyroscope.
The feature can detect if the user has been involved in a serious car accident and automatically call emergency services if the user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone.
Meanwhile, Emergency SOS combines custom components built into software that allows antennas to lock onto a satellite.
It can be used out of reach of cell phones or Wi-Fi, texting emergency services in seconds or minutes.
The SOS service will be available in November in the United States and Canada, where it will be free for two years.
After running the beta earlier this year, iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will have iOS16 ready for use.
Users are finally getting the Always On Display (AOD), which allows them to see the clock and notifications on the lock screen.
iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
The Pro series is the hottest topic in the tech space.
Many suggested this workout to get rid of the front notch instead of a pill and a pinhole, but Apple put one over the top when they revealed a single front camera.
Apple, also known as “Dynamic Island”, has gone a step further by including interactive functionality for notifications and activities.
The dynamic island shrinks the camera to make more room for the viewing area.
Users can access controls with a long press where apps such as maps, music or timer are visible and interactive.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max also offer an improved camera system that incorporates the new 48-megapixel main camera.
The Pro models also have emergency SOS and collision detection functions.
Compared to the lower models, the iPhone Pros have the A16 Bionic, which gives them the best performance on mobile devices.
