The new iPhone 14 has arrived in Europe. There are four versions: iPhone 14, the Plus, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max. The latter two are the repositories of the most significant innovations in design and functionality. It starts with Dynamic Island, the upper notch that retains the camera for selfies, and Face Id, the user recognition system. As of this year, it is smaller and fits into the software interface to widen the view and show notifications and other alerts in real-time.
It further improves the photo department, which retains two cameras on the base models and three on the Pro models but with what Apple calls ‘evolved night photography. There are two new features worth mentioning: accident detection, with smartphones alerting emergency contacts if the sensors, avoiding false positives, realize that the user has fallen or had an accident on a vehicle. And satellite SOS is only active in the United States and Canada, allowing users to connect to Apple’s network of satellite partners to send emergency messages even when there is no signal. Prices are high, as usual, but this is Apple, no surprise.
“Our customers count on their iPhone every day, and with iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, we’re delivering more advancements than any other iPhone. iPhone 14 Pro introduces a camera system that empowers every user — from the casual user to the professional — to take their best photos and video, and innovative new technologies like the Always-On display and the Dynamic Island, which offers new interactions for notifications and activities,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Groundbreaking safety capabilities bring users even more security, offering help when they need it most. And with the incredibly powerful and efficient A16 Bionic chip and all-day battery life, this is the best iPhone yet.”
