Top Features of iPhone 14

Aesthetically Appealing, Durable Design with Amazing Battery Life

Available in the popular 6.1-inch size and a stunning new 6.7-inch size, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature a durable and sleek aerospace-grade aluminum design in five beautiful finishes.

The larger display of iPhone 14 Plus is an excellent option to stream movies and playing games. On the other hand, iPhone 14 Plus boasts the best battery life ever in an iPhone.

While both models have an updated internal design for better thermal performance, gorgeous Super Retina XDR displays with OLED technology supporting 1200 nits of peak HDR brightness, a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and Dolby Vision.

ESIM

Apple announced that it won’t include physical SIM trays with iPhone 14 models sold in the US. The iPhone 14 will use an eSIM instead, also known as a digital SIM card. Apple says eSIMs are more secure and should help users easily switch between carriers — but it could be trickier for anyone used to the simplicity of popping their SIM card out and switching it to another phone to change service.

Camera Upgrades Enabled by Photonic Engine

Upgraded cameras come standard on the newest versions of the iPhone. The 14’s have a 12MP f/1.8 aperture rear camera that allows for better low-light photos and more natural colors, thanks to deeper pixels.

With its Smart HDR, the camera detects moving objects like kids running around you in the room or cars whizzing by your window and automatically takes several shots to produce a brighter picture with richer colors for you.

What’s new in iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max

Apple just announced their next generation of iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max, and each sported updated features over last year’s phone. One of the biggest improvements was Apple’s introduction of a pill-shaped punch-hole display that would allow users to see notification alerts through animations on the device itself.

The other big change was an upgrade in cameras – both front facing and back facing. With three cameras total (two of which being 12mp) it allowed for some incredible photo capturing capabilities. It’ll also come with support for portrait mode via Artificial Intelligence (AI).

It is certainly going to make it easier than ever before for people who want to take quality photos from far away distances without having to take multiple pictures or purchase expensive lenses.

The A16 Bionic chip in iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max is miles ahead of the competition, and unlocks experiences like the Dynamic Island, powers all-day battery life, and delivers seamless computational photography capabilities.

Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via Satellite

This feature is an especially important one and path breaking, as the ability to contact emergency services quickly in a time of dire need can mean the difference between life and death.

Apple’s Crash Detection sends location data to its servers when your app detects that you’ve been in a crash.

Your phone contacts its servers to help pinpoint your exact location while you are still able.

If the call does not go through, or if there is no cell service at all, then it will use GPS to determine where you are located by using satellites. If neither method works, then the SOS button on the lock screen will be triggered automatically so that emergency responders know where to find you.

Apple Fitness+

Later this fall, for the first time ever, iPhone users across 21 countries will be able to subscribe to Apple Fitness+. So, what’s interesting about this feature? Users can access Apple Fitness+ even if they don’t have an Apple Watch.

iPhone users will have easy access to exclusive services featuring more than 3,000 studio-style workouts and meditations. All the workouts are conducted by a diverse and inclusive team of trainers.

Apple Fitness makes tracking your health simple, fun, and meaningful. It takes the power of iPhone’s built-in accelerometer, along with sophisticated software to give you the most accurate readings on steps, active minutes, distance, calories burned as well as floors climbed.

Fitness+ will be fully integrated with the Fitness app coming with iOS 16 and located in the middle tab, where users can stay motivated to close their Move ring through awards, activity sharing, and more.

Always-on Display

The iphone14 has been redesigned with an always on display that puts an end to missed notifications. It also wakes up as soon as you pick it up from its resting spot, allowing you to see the time and date in one go.

With the refresh rate of the screen to just once per second, as well as a super-low-power mode, users will have access to the most important info at fingertips without dramatically draining your battery life.
Apart from the convenience, this feature also helps save battery life.

Conclusion

iPhone 14 comes with several features that are class apart. However, several features are not significantly different from its predecessor iPhone 13. But iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are light years ahead in terms of features. 

Will users embrace this new device or turn skeptical about the incremental upgrades? Will users pay a premium amount for the iPhone Pro lineup? Only time will tell. If you are a business owner looking to leverage new features, it is important to avail iPhone app development services from a trusted agency
