Another complained, “Apple released the same phone with barely marginal improvements again?”
It was sarcastically replied by another, “It’s not the same since it continues costing you more money.”
iPhone 14 has 5-core graphics instead of 4-core graphics, the ability to take 4K videos @30fps, and Bluetooth 5.3.
These are about the most notable “new” features on the phone if you’re willing to shell out at least $100 more than iPhone 13. But with the release of the new model, iPhone 13 has been getting a huge price cut. Meanwhile, iPhone 14 will sell starting at $799 and the iPhone 14 Plus at $899 when released on September 16.
Then there’s the satellite connectivity, a new feature only available to users in Canada and the US that allows them to send an SOS message when no other connection allows them to.
Along with the release of the phone is the Apple Watch Ultra.
Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, Greg Joswiak, shared a statement on the iPhone 14 and its superior version, “Both phones have a powerful new Main camera with a huge leap in low-light performance, advanced connectivity capabilities with 5G and eSIM, and the incredible performance of A15 Bionic, which helps enable even better battery life.”
“All of this, tightly integrated with iOS 16, makes iPhone more essential than ever.”
They’re also equipped with the TrueDepth camera for autofocus on selfie camera and a better lens for the main camera when it comes to working in low-light conditions. This is coupled with the release of the Photonic Engine that helps process images captured in low-light conditions.
Apple explains, “Through a deep integration of hardware and software, Photonic Engine improves mid- to low-light performance for photos across all cameras: up to 2x on the Ultra Wide camera, 2x on the TrueDepth camera, and an impressive 2.5x on the new Main camera.”
“Photonic Engine enables this dramatic increase in quality by applying the computational benefits of Deep Fusion earlier in the imaging process to deliver extraordinary detail, and preserve subtle textures, provide better color, and maintain more information in a photo.”
One might say it’s almost a carbon copy of the iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 still uses the same display as iPhone 13. It still has an IP68 rating, the same CPU, chipset, sensors, and ultrawide lens.
They’ve finally stepped up their game to make use of the top-notch space to display information.
Tim Cook has dubbed the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max as the best smartphones they had ever made.
