Apple reveals iPhone 14 Pro and Watch Ultra

At a launch event in the US, Apple unveiled the iPhone 14, which includes car crash detection technology and emergency satellite connectivity.

For the first time since the epidemic, an audience was present in person as the company unveiled four versions of the latest handset at its Cupertino headquarters.

The Watch Ultra, a brand-new wearable for extreme sports, was also displayed. The new Watch, AirPod, and iPhone models were the main highlights of the presentation.

Apple has unveiled a robust watch that is crack-resistant, dust-proof, and swim-proof, to compete with brands like Polar, Garmin, and others.

The new watch’s presentation included ultramarathoner Scott Jurek of Born to Run and centered on a wider face design for usage with extreme sports.

Apple guarantees that its customers will have enough power to complete an ultra-triathlon that entails running, swimming, and cycling with the Ultra watches’ up to 36-hour battery life on a single charge and a 60-hour extended battery life.

Priced at $799 in the US and £849 in the UK, the Apple Watch Ultra is now available.


iPhone 14 Pro

The top of the screen now has a pill-shaped cutout, which is the significant design difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The black notch, about which many iPhone users gripe, has been replaced with a function called the Dynamic Island, which can change shape according to the notifications. Another significant change is that the phone can always be on.

The phone’s screen dims and its refresh rate slows down while it is not in use. Along with black, silver, and gold, the handset also comes in a deep purple hue.

The price of the iPhone 14 Pro is £999 (UK), $999 (US) (UK).

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are the two sizes that the company is releasing.

The latest phones have a satellite-based emergency call feature. The phone will show the location of any passing satellites in the sky as well as how to accurately point the device at them. Additionally, sending a basic message can take from around 15 seconds to several minutes.

Ben Wood, the senior analyst at CCS Insight, declared that the expense of adding satellite capacity should not be undervalued.

It probably took Apple years to put everything in place, including a business deal with satellite service provider Globalstar and the development of the infrastructure required to transmit messages to the emergency services.

Technology expert Paolo Pescatore stated he thought the innovation was good news for users “in hard-to-reach places.”

In the end, stable and robust connectivity is still greatly desired among all users, therefore it is encouraging to see providers gradually taking satellite seriously.


iPhone Camera

The tech giant unveiled a brand-new 12-megapixel camera with the ability to capture images of moving objects and claims a 49% improvement in low-light capture. 

To improve selfie clarity, the front camera now features auto-focus.

More than three trillion images were taken using iPhones in the past year, according to Apple.

The price of the iPhone 14 begins at $799 (US) and £849 (UK).


Airpods

More readily available than their predecessors are AirPods Pro. Each pair has a unique technique for locating lost earphones that plays a chime when they are accidentally dropped outside of the case.

Additionally, the case itself has a speaker that will play a louder sound if the Find My app requests it.

The cost of the new AirPods Pro is $249 (US) and £249. (UK).


Summing Up

When disconnected from the internet, the new iPhone 14 will be able to send SMS via satellite. The company claims that the chunky Ultra Watch is ideal for multi-day remote journeys because it has an exceptionally long battery life. The new watches and phones from Apple will also come with a new crash detection technology that will notify the emergency services when it detects an impact. Here, the plan is fairly obvious. Apple is still promoting its products as tools for health and safety. Tim Cook calls the products “essential,” which is hardly surprising.

However, in practice, these updates are specialized and interesting, with functionality that users will likely hope they never need.
