Andrej Mikhailov, a certified equipment systems engineer, talks about the features of the iPhone 14 and Pro series smartphones and the new features installed in them.

The most advanced Pro line ever

The most popular models of the Pro series have been significantly improved, the new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max smartphones have the fastest and most powerful, extremely energy-efficient A16 Bionic processor. This ensures a longer-lasting battery – iPhone 14 Pro models have a battery life of up to 23 hours. watching videos and up to 75 hours when listening to music, the iPhone 14 Pro Max battery lasts up to 29 and 95 hours, respectively.

One of the major improvements of the Pro series is the ultra-bright display. The latest phones feature a Super Retina XDR 2,000 nit screen, so it will be comfortable to use outdoors in bright sunlight.

All iPhone 14 and Pro series phones are equipped with an innovative safety function – crash detection. The operation of this technology is ensured by a number of different sensors working at the same time: a barometer in the device that detects changes in the pressure inside the car, a GPS connection that provides additional information about changes in speed, and a microphone that is able to recognize loud sounds. In the event of a traffic accident, the phone automatically offers to share your location and report the accident to emergency services and key contact persons. Innovative technology helps to provide emergency assistance when it is most needed.

At the top of the screen of the Pro series devices, we see an innovative new feature – Dynamic Island, which makes it even more convenient to monitor notifications and other changing information in real time, without interrupting the previous actions. “Dynamic Island” works not only as a notification window – even several apps can be controlled in the interactive window at the same time: for example, you can switch music, play and even while in other apps, watch the timer or turn on sound recording.

The latest Pro series phone screens introduce the smart Always-On feature for the first time. This means that when this setting is enabled, the screen only dims. The update will allow you to always have weather, reminders or other relevant information at your fingertips. Always-On turns off the screen completely in several situations: when you turn your iPhone screen-down, put it in your pocket, enter sleep or power-saving mode, or move away from the phone while wearing a paired Apple Watch.

This year also saw the biggest update to the Pro camera system ever. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models have a 48-megapixel (MP) main camera with an advanced quad-pixel sensor that reacts 4 times better to light and delivers not only impressive, but also practical 12 MP photos. Those who wish to capture 48 MP photos will be able to do so using the ProRAW format. These smartphones are distinguished by a new 12 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and improved telephoto performance in the dark. The new technologies will allow users to enjoy better optical zoom and macro photography capabilities.

The Photonic Engine has opened up even greater possibilities in the field of digital photography – from now on, photos captured in medium and low light conditions will look even brighter. In modern devices, the quality of photography depends not only on sensors, but also on the capabilities of algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI). The new sensors and algorithms installed in the Pro series models will allow users to capture high-quality and even more detailed photos.

The new TrueDepth front camera ensures even better quality of photos and videos in low light. Another innovation for photography enthusiasts is automatic focus, which allows you to focus even faster and capture group photos from a greater distance.

Video recording functions have also received updates. Cinematic mode has been improved – it now supports 4K HDR resolution and is capable of automatic focus distribution. Both the iPhone 14 and the Pro series phones have introduced a new shooting mode called Action mode, which gives videos unprecedented stability, so even if you are filming while moving, the image remains stable. The technology adapts to large shakes and vibrations and automatically stabilizes the image.

Additional shooting and shooting functions such as night mode, Smart HDR 4, portrait mode with portrait lighting, night portrait photos and Apple ProRAW allow you to feel like a professional and capture extremely high-quality shots.

All models of the iPhone 14 and Pro series feature a completely updated adaptive True Tone flash with an array of 9 LEDs that changes the light intensity according to the distance to the subject.

The new models of the “Pro” series stand out for their extremely durable and stylish design – the stainless steel rims match perfectly with the frosted glass back. Screen protection is guaranteed by the innovative Ceramic Shield, which is the strongest on the smartphone market. Protection against water and dust is ensured by the “IP68” resistance certificate.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max are available in four colors: Deep Purple, Space Black, Silver and Gold. The available internal storage capacity of these models ranges from 128 GB to 1 TB.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

This year, 2 iPhone 14 sizes were introduced: the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus model, which will be released in October. The new Plus series smartphone gives users a bigger screen.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are powered by an improved A15 Bionic chip processor that provides more RAM (6GB instead of 4GB) and a faster graphics processor (5 cores instead of 4). The iPhone 14 Plus model has the longest battery life on an iPhone.

The appearance of the iPhone 14’s camera system has been minimally adjusted, but significant technical changes have expanded the capabilities of filming and photography. The new 12 MP main camera with f/1.5 aperture and sensor with stabilization function provides 49 percent. better image quality in low light and a night mode that captures photos twice as fast. The phone’s front-facing camera has also been improved – just like the Pro models, there’s a 12MP TrueDepth camera with autofocus.

iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus models are available in as many as five different colors: Blue, Purple, Midnight, Starlight and (PRODUCT) RED. The internal memory capacity of the models is 128, 256 or 512 GB.

As with all Apple devices, the iPhone 14 and Pro series phones are dedicated to data security and privacy. This is ensured by Secure Enclave, Face ID, Privacy Nutrition Labels and other security technologies installed on the device.

Apple also cares about environmental protection. The company has set a goal by 2030. to achieve a neutral level of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into the atmosphere and to produce our products without using Earth’s resources.

Even better, you can unlock the capabilities of your iPhone by using it with other devices in the Apple ecosystem – Mac computers, Apple Watches, AirPods wireless headphones or iPad tablets. They are distinguished by their extremely smooth interaction and complement each other perfectly. This will allow you to use the functionality of Apple devices even better.

The new operating system iOS 16

From September 12 iPhone phones (from iPhone 8 and later) already run the new operating system iOS 16, which will help you to use the full capabilities of your smartphone even better.

For example, the updated lock screen is more personal and useful than ever, as you can arrange the photos or widgets you want on it. You can also use Messages to edit or cancel recently sent messages and mark conversations as unread.

Improved Live Text is even more powerful with the ability to recognize text in video, quickly convert currency, translate text in real-time, and more. The new Visual Look Up feature makes it easy to copy an image object, remove its background, and paste it into any application.
