Apple iPhone 14 review: Frequent upgrades

Apple iPhone 14 review: Frequent upgrades

as I was My hairstylist asked me if I’d seen the new iPhone, after getting a haircut last week. She didn’t know my profession but she saw my Apple Watch and, as is mandatory in this line of work, was having a short chat. “Does it look different?” It was the main query. She reached into my back pocket and handed her iPhone 14. With a surprised smile I quickly gave way to disappointment. “It’s exactly the same as my iPhone 11,” she said.

This is Apple’s problem. The few elements that the public might recognize as new have carried over to the iPhone 14 Pro models, such as the Always-On display and Dynamic Island. The pros also have new 48-megapixel sensors for the primary rear camera, something Apple hasn’t tinkered with since 2015. That means phones capture more detail so you can print your photos at large sizes, for example, and allow for more editing options. But be honest – how many people do you know who print poster-size photos or delve into the RAW settings on their phones?

The vanilla iPhone is arguably Apple’s most important phone. After all, he sell more What a margin. If Apple wants you to upgrade, there must be a clear reason or reasons for doing so — reasons that the average person can recognize and be excited about. So let’s take a look at what Apple wants us to keep in mind when looking at the new iPhone 14.

Yes, it looks just like the iPhone 13. Well, I’ll give you a prize if you can detect it’s 0.31 inch thick compared to its predecessor’s 0.30 inch thicker, or roughly 2 grams cut in weight. You’ll get the same 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR display, and still – yes, residentIt works at 60 Hz. Unlike most other phones at this price, you won’t get a 120Hz screen refresh rate. You’ll have to upgrade to the Pro model if you really want to.

Apple has abandoned the design of the iPhone Mini (it is bombed, unfortunately) and back to “bigger is better,” adding in the 6.7-inch Plus model. The iPhone 14 Plus is almost the same as the iPhone 14, except that it will have a slightly longer battery life and will arrive on October 7 (you It can be pre-ordered now).

These iPhones remain water and dust resistant to IP68 standard. You get the same tempered glass ceramic and aluminum as the 13. Same levels of brightness. Even the processor that runs on it is the same – the A15 Bionic chip instead of the A16 in the Pro, but here at least Apple gave you the iPhone 13 Pro version with an additional graphics core. Apple tinkered with the battery to give you an extra, nearly unnoticeable hour of video playback, from 19 to 20. But the iPhone 14 Plus’s larger design increases that for up to 26 hours.

Two of the most significant upgrades to the new iPhones are features that we hope you never use and that are hard to test. I love my job, but I’m not about to get into a car accident or fall off a mountain on purpose. Sorry.

Assuming fault detection works as stated, it is indeed a smart addition. A new dual-core accelerometer and high dynamic range gyroscope, combined with audio monitoring, can detect severe crashes of up to 256g. Once the program is recorded, the iPhone 14 can automatically call emergency services and play an audio loop notifying responders of the crash and providing your location. The iPhone can also alert emergency contacts in the Health app.

If you get hurt in a remote area where there’s no phone service, SOS Emergency via satellite uses dedicated antennas to connect to Globalstar satellites in orbit, allowing you to text chat with emergency responders or Apple’s relay center. The trick here is to leave enough battery to find those satellites (it also doesn’t work indoors).

With the iPhone 14, you don’t need a physical SIM card to connect to cellular networks. Alternatively, you can use an eSIM (electronic SIM card). This isn’t a new technology – it’s been around since the iPhone XS. However, Apple has completely eliminated the physical SIM card slot for iPhones in the US. People in the UK (and the rest of the world) still have the option to use one.
