After an appetizer based on smartwatches, Apple announced the real heroes of the evening: The top of the range iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max.
Here comes the pill
This is the fourth year that Apple has divided its smartphone range into ‘normal’ and ‘regular’ models. “Positives”. Last year, though, the difference was evident with the arrival of a 120Hz ProMotion display, telephoto lens, lidar sensor, and more RAM/memory. This year, the situation has not changed and the Standard and Pro models are moving away with Notch disappearance and access holes to form a “grain”.
Apple calls it “dynamic island” Because the space for sensors will react to notifications. It may also host widgets, which can be enlarged to display more content or perform an action.
In other words, Apple has completely revised the notification system with the iPhone 14 Pro taking into account the new visual properties of the grain that replaces the traditional notch.
The 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max displays are now 6.1 and 6.7 inches respectively with a maximum brightness of 1,600 nits, instead of 1,200.
The Always-On-Display also makes an appearance, taking advantage of the technical characteristics of LTPO (up to 1 Hz) and an OLED display that remains perfectly readable as it has been for years on some Android models.
As far as performance is concerned, the Apple A16 Bionic is the expected evolution. This new Apple chip is built on a 4nm manufacturing process and is the most powerful chip in the world (according to Apple) as well as being 40% more efficient than the competition. With 4 efficient cores and 2 performance cores, the design is as hybrid as previous Apple chips. GPU shifts to 5 cores with 50% improvement.
For photography, the 12MP sensor is replaced by An unprecedented 48MP sensor for the main camera With 65% more pixels. The focal aperture is fixed at f/1.78 and pixel binning technology is used to combine pixels: 4 pixels by 1 pixel to enhance detail and restore brightness.
In addition to the 3x telephoto zoom of the 12 Pro, a 2x telephoto zoom (12 MP, f / 1.78) has been added. On the front, we also have an improved TrueDepth camera, with autofocus.
Emergency mode and satellite
iPhone 14 will be able to detect if a user has been in an accident and make use of satellite communication to contact rescue services. But be warned: This type of technology cannot be used to exchange data or call friends, and at the moment only the United States and Canada are compatible with this method.
