Apple’s iPhone 14 range
As with previous generations of iPhone, the iPhone 14 is not one handset but a range of four. Launching on September 16 will be the iPhone 14, the iPhone 14 Plus, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The base iPhone 14 starts at £849, the oversized iPhone 14 starts at £949 while prices for the premium iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max handsets will start at £1,099 and £1,199, respectively.
There have been minor tweaks across the board plus some major new features for the next generation of iPhones. Here are some of the standout updates.
iPhone 14 Pro display
The iPhone Pro 14 has a 6.1” Super Retina XDR display with a camera notch that now changes shape and size depending on context. For example, the notch will appear to expand to display ‘now playing’ information.
The handset’s display is also now ‘always on’, meaning that even when not in use, the display will show basic information such as the time and some notifications.
iPhone 14 Pro battery
Apple says the new iPhone Pro’s battery will hold out for 29 hours’ worth of video playback, and will charge to 50% in half an hour using a 20W adapter.
A16 Bionic processor
Debuting with the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is the new A16 Bionic processor, consisting of a six-core CPU and a five-core GPU with 50% more memory bandwidth than the A15 Bionic chip of previous iPhones.
iPhone 14 Pro camera
Apple has significantly boosted the iPhone’s photography capabilities with the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, thanks to a new 48 megapixel (MP) main lens and a quad-pixel sensor – all of which is to say the phone will take more detailed photographs.
Cinematic Mode, which enables a rack-focus effect commonly used in the movies, returns – automatically switching focus from subjects in the foreground to those in the background and vice-versa as the camera and subjects move.
iPhone 14 Pro: Everything else
The iPhone 14 Pro is doing away with the tray for a physical SIM card, using instead a virtual ‘eSIM’ card – potentially allowing users to manage more than one phone number and mobile deal on the same handset.
Another big addition is emergency calling via satellite, allowing users who find themselves in trouble in an area without signal to reach emergency services.
Apple has also taken further steps to make the new iPhone more customizable, as other phone manufacturers have long done, allowing iPhone 14 users to select typefaces and color schemes via the new iOS16 operating system.
