Apple introduces iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus: Here’s what you need to know

Updated: Nov 15, 2022

Featuring the Always-On display, the first-ever 48MP camera on iPhone, Crash Detection, Emergency SOS via satellite, and an innovative new way to receive notifications and activities with the Dynamic Island. While that’s exciting, it’s not the most notable aspect of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus – in fact, there’s quite a bit to get excited about this year. Apple has improved the camera system with a new rear-facing 12Mp camera with a larger sensor and larger 1.9-micron pixels that the company claims improves low-light performance by 49%, though the ultra-wide lens remains unchanged.

The 14 Pro has the same 6.1in OLED display and premium stainless steel and glass design as previous models, but the large notch at top of the screen containing the cameras for Face ID has been replaced by a 31% smaller pill-shaped design Apple calls the “dynamic island”.

The pill is animated, expanding and contracting to accommodate system alerts and ongoing notifications, such as charging status, album art and a little waveform when playing music or a countdown timer. Tapping and holding the notch reveals more of the notification, such as music playback controls, and just a tap opens the app.

New iPhone 14 and Pro Max features include:

  • Always-On display

  • First-ever 48MP camera on iPhone

  • Crash Detection

  • Powered by A16 Bionic chip

  • Emergency SOS via satellite

  • Innovative new way to receive notifications and activities with the Dynamic Island

The Always-On display is the first time an iPhone will have the feature, enabled by a new 1Hz refresh rate and multiple power-efficient technologies. Time, widgets, and Live Activities will be available for users with a mere glance at their phone.

The iPhone 14 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen and the Pro Max 6.7-inch, both are made from stainless steel and textured matte glass design in four colours. The Dynamic Island replaces the much maligned notch and offers new ways for users to interact with their phones. According to Apple, Dynamic Island, ‘blurs the line between hardware and software’ and is able to expand to execute different functions.

With the introduction of the Dynamic Island, the TrueDepth camera has been redesigned to take up less of the display area and prevent impeding content on the screen.

The Pro range is fitted with a new 48MP main camera with a quad-pixel sensor that adapts to the photo being captured, and features second-generation sensor-shift optical image stabilisation. Other camera upgrades include a new 12MP ultra wide camera, cinematic mode in 4K and new Adaptive True Tone flash using nine LEDs.

Crash Detection, which is available on all four handsets, can detect a severe car crash and automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone.

And Apple’s safety focus continues with Emergency SOS via satellite which allows users to connect to satellite in situations where contacting emergency services is not possible due to no signal.

Finally the A16 Bionic chip in iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will reportedly perform 40% faster than competitors.

New iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus features include:

  • New, larger 6.7-inch size

  • New dual-camera system

  • Crash Detection

  • Emergency SOS via satellite

A new, larger 6.7-inch size will be available to accompany the 6.1-inch design giving buyers the option of bigger screen for streaming movies and playing games.

Made from aerospace-grade aluminum design in five different finishes, both models have an updated internal design for better thermal performance, Super Retina XDR displays with OLED technology.

Each phone has a new 12MP main camera featuring a larger sensor and larger pixels, a new front TrueDepth camera, the Ultra Wide camera to capture more detail, and improved performance in low-light.

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will also have Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via Satellite. The phones will be fitted with A15 Bionic chips.

There are five available colours to chose from for your iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Plus, they are, midnight, blue, starlight, purple, and red.

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have space black, silver, gold, and deep purple finishes.
