Apple introduces its two new iPhone phones with a more powerful camera system that includes a breakthrough in low-light performance, advanced connectivity capabilities with 5G and eSIM.
The new iPhone 14s is available in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch (14 Plus version) and mounted on an aerospace-grade aluminum chassis, available in five finishes. According to Apple, the iPhone 14 Plus has the best battery life ever offered by an iPhone. Both models feature an updated internal design for better thermal performance, Super Retina XDR displays with OLED technology that support 1,200 nits of peak HDR brightness, 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and Dolby Vision.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature Ceramic Shield displays, unique to iPhone and tougher than any other smartphone, and are protected against spills and common accidents thanks to their resistance to water and dust.
The famous notch at the top of the screen of the 14 Pro models undergoes a transformation to better adapt to notifications that can sometimes be annoying.

The new main camera offers 12MP resolution thanks to a larger sensor, a new TrueDepth front camera, an ultra-wide ultra-wide photo sensor, and Photonic Engine for a huge leap in low-light performance.
Dual camera system in versions 14 and 14 Plus
Speaking of imaging hardware and software, the Photonic Engine feature improves low- and medium-light performance for photos from all cameras: up to 2x on the Ultra Wide camera, 2x on the TrueDepth camera, and an impressive 2.5x on the new main camera.
Additionally, the Photonic Engine enables this dramatic increase in quality by applying the computational benefits of Deep Fusion earlier in the imaging process to deliver extraordinary detail, preserve subtle textures, deliver better colors, and retain more information in a photo. according to the press release issued by Manzana.
Triple camera system in the 14 Pro versions
This TrueDepth front camera provides an ƒ/1.9 aperture that enables better low-light performance for photos and videos. Using autofocus for the first time, you can focus even faster in low light and capture group photos from farther away.
A new action mode for incredibly smooth videos that adapt to strong shakes, movements and vibrations, even when the video is captured in the middle of the action.
The Ultra Wide Camera, which provides a unique perspective for wider shots and low-light enhancements with Photonic Engine.
Cinematic mode, now available in 4K at 30fps and 4K at 24fps.
Collision detection and emergency SOS via satellite
Here is a security feature that may appeal to many people. The entire iPhone 14 lineup features emergency assistance capabilities in the event of an accident.
Thanks to a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements up to 256 G and a new gyroscope, Crash Detection on iPhone can now detect a serious car accident and automatically call emergency services when a user is unconscious or incapacitated. to get to your iPhone.
These capabilities build on existing components such as the barometer, which can now detect changes in cabin pressure, the GPS, which provides additional data for gear changes, and the microphone, which can recognize noises characteristic of serious car accidents.
When paired with Apple Watch, the shock detection feature seamlessly harnesses the unique strength of the two devices to efficiently support users. When a serious accident is detected, the interface to call the emergency services appears on the Apple Watch, since it is more likely to be close to the user, while the call is made through the ‘iPhone if it is within range to the best connection possible.
iPhone 14 and 14 Plus
The iPhone 14 range also introduces the Emergency SOS via Satellite feature, which combines custom components deeply integrated with software to allow antennas to connect directly to a satellite, allowing messages to be sent to emergency services outside of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. .
As you know, satellites orbit the Earth at several thousand kilometers per hour, so messages sometimes take several minutes to transmit. Because every second counts, with Emergency SOS via Satellite, iPhone brings to the fore some essential questions to assess the user’s situation, and tells them where to point their phone to connect to a satellite.
The initial questionnaire and follow-up messages are then relayed to centers staffed by Apple-trained specialists who can call for help on the user’s behalf. This innovative technology also allows users to manually share their satellite location with the Find My app when there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, providing a sense of security when hiking or camping off the grid. Emergency SOS via satellite will be available to users in the United States and Canada in November and the service will be free for two years.
A15 bionic chip
The A15 Bionic graphics chip features 5 cores to deliver even smoother graphics for high-performance gaming and video applications, according to Apple. Frugal, it provides impressive battery life and protects privacy and security with the Secure Enclave. The 6-core main chip handles demanding tasks smoothly and efficiently, and the 16-core Neural Engine is capable of 15.8 billion operations per second, enabling even faster machine learning calculations for features in iOS 16 and later. third-party app experiences.
eSIM chip instead of SIM card
The eSIM allows users to easily connect or quickly transfer their existing plans digitally, provides a more secure alternative to the physical SIM card, and enables multiple cellular plans on one device. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus therefore remove the traditional SIM slot for US models, allowing users to set up their devices faster and easier.
Canadian prices and availability
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be available in Midnight, Blue, Starlight, Purple, and (PRODUCT)RED colors with storage capacities of 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB.
Canadian buyers will be able to pre-order the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus beginning Friday, September 9, and they will be available beginning Friday, September 16 for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus beginning Friday, October 7. Similar dates for the Pro and Pro Max versions.
The Satellite Emergency SOS service will be available starting in November in the US and Canada, and the service will be included free for two years with the activation of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.
