New iPhones, AirPods, and Apple Watches have introduced at Apple's recent fall iPhone event. Tim Cook has just said that the iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch will be the main attractions of the event.
Here’s what it announced:
- iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus
- iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
- Satellite emergency service for iPhones
- Apple Watch Ultra
- New AirPods Pro
- Apple Watch Series 8
- The new Apple Watch SE
Apple did not raise prices on the new iPhones, as some industry watchers had predicted they would. Orders open this coming Friday. Both the new Apple Watches and the AirPods Pro will be released on September 23.
Apple's CEO Tim Cook has officially introduced the flagship devices for this year, the iPhone 14 Pro.
The iPhone 14 Pro is the larger variant, measuring in at 6.5 inches, while the iPhone 14 has a smaller screen measuring in at 6.1 inches. The larger iPhone is officially being dubbed the iPhone 14 Max.
The base variant of the iPhone 14 Pro will cost $999, with the larger version costing $1099. That's in line with the cost of the 2017 versions. Beginning this coming Friday, you can place a preorder for them to be delivered the following week.
These newer gadgets have a more compact cutout for the front-facing camera, allowing for a larger display. Apple refers to the notch as a "dynamic island," and it may show alerts and system statistics like scores for baseball games.
A number of improvements have been made to the iPhone 14 Pro:
- The screen stays on at all times, even when you're not looking at it.
- To further extend battery life, Apple also unveiled a new low-power mode.
- Apple's latest A16 Bionic chip is used, which the company claims was fabricated using a 4-nanometer technology.
- A larger sensor enables a higher resolution camera, increasing the megapixel count to 48.
- The ability to take better pictures in dim conditions.
- Flash was revamped.
Space black, silver, gold, and dark purple are the available hues. iPhone 14 now has built-in satellite-based emergency support from Apple.
After much speculation, Apple confirmed at its announcement on Wednesday that its iPhone 14 series will be able to link to Globalstar's satellites for use in emergency situations.
In places without access to cell towers, users will still be able to send and receive messages via their iPhone 14s thanks to this new capability.
Apple's manager of satellite modeling and simulation, Ashley Williams, stated that the phone's algorithm compresses text messages to a size that will "take less than 15 seconds to transfer" to a satellite, where it is then sent to a ground station and on to an emergency service provider.
When the iPhone 14 is released in November, it will come with two years of free access to the emergency satellite service.
In a document, Globalstar stated that it will "allocate 85% of its present and future network capacity" to serve the iPhone 14's emergency satellite service.
There is a new era of investment in satellite communications, which already includes many networks that enable specialized, purpose-built phones. Elon Musk's SpaceX and AST SpaceMobile aren't the only companies that have announced collaborations with mobile service providers in order to provide satellite services to ordinary consumer smartphones.
In a recent press conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the 14th-generation iPhone. Two new iPhones, the iPhone 14 Plus and the iPhone 14, have been introduced by Apple thus far.
The iPhone 14 Plus is a larger version that takes the place of the "iPhone 13 small," with a 6.7-inch screen.
The base model of the iPhone 14 will start at $799, while the Plus version will set you back $899. The smaller model is available for pre-order beginning September 9 and will hit store shelves on September 16. However, the Plus variant won't be available until October.
Apple has announced that starting with the iPhone 14, all models sold in the United States would use a digital eSIM instead of a physical SIM card.
The iPhone 14 has many new and improved features, such as:
- Multi-color OLED screen with true tones
- There are five different hues, the newest being a pastel blue.
- longer battery life
- Ceramics provide for more resilient displays.
- Improved front-facing camera performance in dim conditions
- When in Action Mode, the video is stabilized and can be sent to the Emergency SOS via Satellite service, which can contact emergency services even if the user isn't in a cell phone or Wi-Fi signal area. Available at no cost to iPhone 14 owners in the US and Canada, it makes its debut in Canada.
Apple's $249 AirPods Pro are announced.
Apple's CEO Tim Cook unveiled a new version of the company's wireless, noise-cancelling AirPods Pro headphones.
They will be available for $249 beginning on September 23.
Apple claims that these new headphones improve upon their predecessors' H1 models in terms of sound quality and clarity thanks to an updated Apple H2 chip found within.
All-new updates bring among other things:
- Modern volume knot that can be adjusted by touch
- Enhanced playback time of up to 6 hours on a single charge
- The tiniest possible ear bud size
- Adding more evidence, one speaker said
- Accepts MagSafe adapters for charging.
- According to Apple, the new versions have noise reduction that is twice as effective as before.
With prices beginning at $799, Apple introduces its new high-end Apple Watch Ultra.
Apple's newest high-end watch, the Apple Watch Ultra, features a reimagined design, enlarged display, and titanium body. The target demographic for this product is athletes who train in the great outdoors.
It will be available on September 23 for at least $799. On Wednesday, you can place a preorder.
New features, including a compass, are displayed on the watch's face. There's also a brand-new orange "action" button for use with one hand, whether you're working out or wearing gloves. While swimming, it can also display the depth to which the user has descended.
Here's what Apple's iPhone 14 event revealed.
In a promotional film, Apple COO Jeff Williams remarked, "Every detail has been developed to make the most durable and capable Apple Watch ever."
Apple's newest smartwatch, the Apple Watch SE, is a reimagined Series 8 at a reduced price point.
New to this year's version is:
- More visible space on the screen
- Modified plastic construction on the back of the watch
- Alerts based on heart rate
- Preventing falls with automatic monitoring
Starting on September 16th, you may get one for $249 or $299. Apple is pitching it to parents who think their kids don't warrant an iPhone of their own.
Series 8 Apple Watch with a built-in thermometer is announced.
Apple Watch news has been presented by Apple CEO Tim Cook to start off the video-centric launch event.
Apple's chief operating officer, Jeff Williams, has confirmed that the new product will be dubbed the Series 8. It's built to last longer than its predecessors and features a temperature sensor that can be used to track vital signs and even ovulation.
It will be available in three stainless steel colors and four aluminum colors (black, gold, aluminum, and red). Aluminum models start at $399, while those with cellular data cost at least $499.
Apple claims the iPhone is built with security and privacy in mind, and that the user's health information would only be shared with their consent.
There's also a new safety feature enabled by two motion sensors that Apple installed. If the new car crash detection system determines that you were in a serious crash, it will immediately dial 911.
By temporarily turning off the always-on display and workout alerts, a new Apple Watch mode can double the watch's battery life from 18 hours to 36 hours.
Cook began by showing a video of people reading letters they had written to him praising the wearable for its role in helping them receive aid during times of need.
