What Distinguishes The IPhone 14 From Previous Versions

 Apple announced, on September 7, the lineup of iPhone 14 devices for the current year, which comes with a typical appearance, fundamental changes, and higher prices than before, so do the specifications and feature it contains make it coveted for acquisition and purchase


Are there any changes to the iPhone specifications

The central processing unit of the iPhone 13

The iPhone 14 comes with the same processing unit "A15 Bionic" as the previous generation iPhone 13, as the expectations about this were true, the devices that come with the new processing unit" A16 " are pro copies only.

This means that the processing unit will be 6-core with a 16-core AI engine and a 5-core graphics module for better performance.

So there is no change in the processor power from the iPhone 13 to the regular iPhone model.

IPhone 14 screen = iPhone 13 screen

Apple supplied the iPhone 14 with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR screen with a resolution of 2532×1170, the same as the previous generation screen with a density of 440 pixels per inch, which reaches a brightness of 1200 lumens in conditions of high dynamic range (HDR).

The screen design remains the same, with a cut at the top of the screen containing the 12-megapixel front camera, as well as the updated TrueDepth real depth model and its augmented reality sensors.

Improved iPhone 14 cameras

The iPhone 14 has received a clear development on its rear cameras, as the main sensor comes in a larger size with also larger pixels, an f/1.5 aperture, and an upgraded feature for image stabilization through the sensor.

The performance of iPhone 14 cameras improved from the previous generation in low light performance by almost half, and the night mode also became faster with the update of light exposure.

As for the wide lens, not much information was mentioned about it and it is likely that it is the same as the previous generation, in contrast to the Pro versions in which this lens received a huge update.

The front camera got developed through a hybrid focusing system, thanks to the real depth model and the autofocus feature.

The company also pointed out in its conference on deep image integration modifications, where this technology designed by Apple combines the information of two images at different degrees of light exposure and outputs one image in a mode between low to medium illumination.

With the iPhone 14, this technology will be used with uncompressed images, or what is known as RAW images, to obtain an image with clearer details in low light conditions.

Apple also introduced the motion mode in shooting for the iPhone 14, as this mode provides advanced stabilization for video shooting with a statement from the company that there is no need for an external stabilizer device when using this mode, so the resulting videos will be of better quality and clearer resolution while preserving the details.

iPhone 14 battery

Apple stated that the new battery in the iPhone 14 devices will have a longer life, thanks to its larger capacity and the improvements that the company is constantly making to the system, and it seems that these statements are in place, as evidenced by the battery performance results of the last generation iPhone 13, where Apple stated that the battery in its new devices will last a full day without the need to recharge.

New iPhone 14 features

Satellite connection

The iPhone 14 comes with an unprecedented and super important new feature, namely satellite rescue messages.

This feature enables you to use the satellite connection when you are in an area that is not reached by a cellular signal to send rescue messages to the concerned authorities.

Satellite communication depends on the presence of a connection between the location where you are with the satellites hovering above the Earth's surface.

And although this is a slower way to communicate, the technology comes in handy when you are out of range of a cell tower, which is what usually keeps our phones connected on a regular basis.

When the phone detects a satellite, users will see the option "emergency text via satellite" which they can use. Also when the feature starts working, users will see a new interface on the screen that will guide them towards getting the best satellite connection from their location.

The importance of this feature is highlighted by its role in saving the lives of people at risk in remote places from cities, and although this feature may be a lifesaver for thousands of people, we do not yet know whether it will be allowed to operate in all countries of the world But currently, according to Apple's announcement, the feature is only available in the United States and Canada.

What about privacy

Apple says that when calling the emergency services via satellite, all messages are sent in encrypted form and decrypted by Apple to be transferred to the relevant emergency services.

However, the same messages may be "retained by emergency service centers and service operators to improve their services, and in compliance with applicable laws," the US company said.

Car accident detection

The iPhone 14 device will be able to identify cases of accidents and car overturning and will offer the user to immediately call for help or an ambulance, and if no interaction with the device takes place, it will automatically send a rescue message (SoS) to the competent authorities to help save the user's life, and this is another very important and unprecedented feature until now.

Although this feature will also be available in the eighth generation Apple Watches, Google Pixel phones (Google Pixel) were the first to include this feature in some of its phones.

The car accident detection feature is enabled by a new three-axis gyroscope and a "high-power" accelerometer that samples data 4 times faster than the previous generation.

Taking advantage of an algorithm running on the device, along with the meter, accidents can be detected in most types of vehicles, and contacts and emergency services can be automatically notified if users do not respond within 10 seconds to the alarm that appears on the screen of their phones, Apple said.

Apple explains the feature by saying: "to create the [collision detection] algorithm, data from these new motion sensors were collected in professional crash testing laboratories with common passenger cars and in real-world simulated accidents, including accidents that occur in various situations, whether face-to-face, from behind, accidents from the sides and even vehicle overturning.

Prices and market situation

Device prices are increasing in general, and with the current economic inflation, we see a decline in the purchasing power of most smartphone users, and the continuously rising price of iPhone devices may be a motive for people from older generations of the device to get the new generation, and users may set an updated plan every two or 3 years, especially since the iPhone 14 is not a clear update difference from the previous generation.

Apple has raised the price of the iPhone 14 series of phones in a number of key markets, although it has not changed in the United States.

With rampant inflation and a looming global recession still on the horizon, all eyes were waiting for how Apple would price its flagship product during the big event on Wednesday, where it unveiled 4 iPhone 14 models.

The surprise was in the United States, where the company kept the prices of the iPhone 14 series equivalent to the prices of the iPhone 13 model.

The base model of the iPhone 14 will start at $ 799, the same amount that was initially charged for last year. The highest price for the iPhone 14 Pro Max (iPhone 14 Pro Max) starts at $ 1099, which is the same price as the iPhone 13 Pro Max (iPhone 13 Pro Max).

However, Apple has raised the price in some of its largest markets globally.

Apple's latest smartphones will serve as a test of the global consumer's appetite for new electronics and experience the brand power of the American technology giant.

For example, in the UK, the price of the iPhone 14 will start from 849 pounds sterling against 779 pounds sterling for the iPhone 13 and an increase of 70 pounds sterling ($ 80)

In Australia, the price of the iPhone 14 will start at AUD $1,399 versus AUD 1,349 for the iPhone 13, an increase of AUD 50 (the US $ 33).

Analysts said that part of the reason for the rises may be the increase in component costs and the rise of the US dollar against other currencies in markets where Apple raised prices.

The price will remain the same in China and some Middle Eastern countries.

This is the person who is probably interested in the iPhone 14

After we reviewed the specifications and features of the iPhone 14, which is modest compared to previous versions, the question that comes to mind is who is the user that Apple is trying to market this model to

The fact is that Apple in this model did not put a lot of possibilities to know that the target segment is either they are users of competing devices who want to switch to Apple or do not want to pay large sums for new devices on them.

Whether they are owners of old iPhones-models 11 and earlier - and it's time to update their devices with this device, they can get an iPhone 14 at the price of an iPhone 13, and for them, this deal can be a winner.
