If you have been waiting to upgrade your smartphone, then you’ll want to check out the new Apple iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 has a ton of great features, including a better camera, a 2.5x better low light performance, and a wider f/1.5 aperture lens. Read on to find out more about these features and to see how they can help you get the most out of your iPhone.
Apple has made a big splash on the satellite connectivity front. They introduced their Emergency SOS via Satellite service at the iPhone 14 event in September. The company has partnered with Globalstar, the satellite provider, to provide an emergency messaging feature. It is the first step toward full satellite connectivity for the iPhone.
Although the service is limited, it allows users to communicate with emergency services. Emergency SOS is free for two years. After the free period is over, Apple will charge for the service.
Apple’s emergency messaging feature is designed to connect users with emergency responders in remote locations. You can send a short text message containing vital information to a local emergency center.
Wider f/1.5 aperture lens
The new iPhone 14 Pro has an ultra-wide camera that can capture excellent nighttime images. It also includes an improved macro mode and better low-light performance. Unlike previous iPhone models, it has a quad-pixel sensor and a new image processor called the Photonic Engine.
The new lens can achieve a shallow depth of field and is designed to produce relatively distortion-free images. The camera can magnify subjects as close as two centimeters.
Apple is continuing its tradition of improving photography on its smartphones. The new models will feature an improved LED flash that should help make photos twice as bright.
A new telephoto lens is also included with the new iPhone. This camera has an f/2.4 aperture that is smaller than the f/1.8 aperture that the older model has. More features are:
- Sapphire crystal lens cover
- True Tone flash
- Photonic Engine
- Deep Fusion
- Smart HDR 4
- Portrait mode with advanced bokeh and Depth Control
2.5x better low light performance
The new Apple iPhone 14 series features improved low-light performance. It is expected to deliver up to 2.5x more low light performance compared to the previous model. This is largely thanks to the new Photonic Engine.
Photonic Engine is a combination of hardware, intelligent software, and machine learning components. It enables the iPhone to perform better in low light conditions, by delivering rich details and bright colours in mid-light scenes.
Photonic Engine is part of the new image-processing pipeline called Deep Fusion. Deep Fusion takes up to 12 photos and combines them to create a single image. Using this process, the camera produces a 12-bit color gamut.
Force sensor to sense when you’re in a car crash
The new Apple iPhone 14 has a crash detection feature that automatically calls for emergency help if it detects a crash. It’s built on a dual-core accelerometer and new gyroscope. This technology is designed to monitor G-forces up to 256Gs, and records the pressure created by a crash.
While this is a great safety feature, you may wonder what kind of impact it can actually detect. Apple said it uses machine learning processing to identify a crash. However, this feature won’t work in every situation.
The device uses a combination of sensors to determine the crash, including a high-dynamic range gyroscope, which detects sudden and extreme changes in orientation. These changes may indicate a serious car crash.
Always-on Display (AoD)
Always-on Display (AoD) is a new feature on Apple’s iPhone 14. It’s also one of the new features available on iOS 16. This new feature lets users customize the lock screen. You can also turn off notifications and hide wallpaper to conserve battery life.
To make the most out of your AoD, you need to know how it works. In this article, you will learn how it works, and what you can do to maximize it.
The always-on display on Apple iPhone 14 Pro models is a bit different from that on previous Apple phones. These smartphones have a more advanced OLED panel.
Car crash detection
The new Apple iPhone 14 has a feature that can be lifesaving. Using a camera and sensors, the device detects a crash. When triggered, the device will automatically call emergency services. This feature can help you contact emergency contacts and locate loved ones if you are in a severe car crash.
Apple worked with real-world testing and crash labs to gather data. In addition, it collected historical data from government agencies and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Apple’s new Crash Detection on the iPhone 14 calls 911 and contacts emergency contacts to alert emergency services. As of now, it is available on the iPhone 14 and the Apple Watch.
