Apple has just formalized its iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, here is a summary of the main new features of the phone.
As for years already, it was a few days after the start of the school year that Apple gave an appointment to the tech world for a conference rich in information. If we will not return here on the announcement new AirPods Pro or even Apple Watch, it is because this keynote, called “Far Out. focused mostly on iPhones.
Tim Cook initially spoke about Apple phones, and after a few minutes of presentation, here’s what to remember from this Apple conference. The first thing to know is that there is a big difference between the iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, which we are going to talk to you about here, and the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, two more high-end phones that are entitled to other specifications.
iPhone 14: an improved iPhone 13?
Regarding the “classic” iPhone 14, we can already regret the presence of the notch. Especially when you know that the latter is not present on the “Pro” model from Apple. The iPhone 14 is a logical continuation of the iPhone 13, without much evolution. As such, it could have deserved the designation of iPhone 13 S, but the Cupertino company seems to have abandoned this designation.
The device remains very efficient, we can note the arrival of Action Mode, a video feature that makes images more stable and fluid. Powerful, the device is not stunning, it only has a modified A15 chip, as announced by the various rumors on this subject.
Finally with regard to the screen, there again there is a clear difference with the iPhone 14 Pro, the “classic” phone from Apple is only entitled to a “Super Retina XDR”. We find in this new phone the “Crash Detection” functionality also present in the latest Apple Watch Series 8 and SE. It alerts the emergency services in the event of an accident.
In order to successfully warn the authorities in all conditions, Apple is introducing a new feature using satellite connections.
iPhone 14 Plus: the same bigger?
While giving us the outlines of the iPhone 14, Apple did the same with the “Plus” version of its phone. While the mini was up to date for two years, the model has (logically) not been renewed, he who has never managed to find a place in the iPhone market. With this new iPhone Max, Apple is reviving the tradition of the “Plus” models that were first released with the iPhone 6.
This phone is very close to the iPhone 14, it has a 6.7-inch screen, compared to 6.1 for the “classic” model. Finally with regard to the battery, the latter is a little larger and Apple announces the best autonomy in its history with regard to the iPhone, without giving more precise figures on the subject.
A price (already) too high?
But the big news that we will surely remember from this conference is the global increase in the price of iPhones. As a source told our colleagues from the iPhon.fr site, the iPhone 14 should exceed the 1000 € mark on sale in France. A first for a phone marked with the apple.
For the iPhone 14, you will therefore have to pay $799 for the 128 GB version, the cheapest of all this new generation. Finally, when it comes to the iPhone 14 Plus, you’ll have to spend $899 for the 128GB version.
