On Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the release of the newest model of its flagship smartphone series at Cupertino in California, putting an end to the protracted wait for the Apple iPhone 14.

The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, and iPhone 14 Pro are the three new models that the tech giant presented. The new phones include larger screens and an updated version of the CPUs from the previous year.

Similar to Apple’s iPhone Pro versions, the iPhone 14 Plus will have a bigger screen, but it will use the same A15 processor as the iPhone 13.

Satellite connectivity is available for emergency use on iPhone 14 variants. Even without a mobile network, this iPhone can connect you to assistance.

The iPhone 14 comes with free satellite connectivity for two years, although it is currently unavailable to consumers in India and only available in the U.S. and Canada.

iPhone 14 costs $899 (Rs 71,604) as opposed to $799 (Rs 63,639) for iPhone 14. Pre-orders for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will begin on September 7. The iPhone 14 will ship on September 16 and the iPhone 14 Plus on October 7.

The additional capabilities include a new video action mode that aids in stabilising action shots. Now that crash detection is a feature of the eSIM standard, the device has adopted it.

The Pro line now features the majority of the iPhone enhancements. These smartphones have a 48-megapixel camera and an always-on low-power screen, similar to the most recent Apple Watch models. The new phone will display widgets with weather, appointment, and stock ticker information.

While the basic line uses a somewhat beefed-up version of the existing A15 processor, the Pro devices additionally include the faster new A16 chip. The A16, according to Apple, is 40% faster than the competition and is the quickest chip in a smartphone.

“We’re constantly challenging ourselves to raise the bar and make it better,” Bloomberg quoted Cook as saying during the event.

The iPhone, Apple’s most significant and popular device to date, accounts for 50% of all of the company’s sales.
