Apple announces iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max
Apple CEO Tim Cook has just announced the iPhone 14 pro, this year’s top models.
The smallest model with a 6.1-inch screen is called the iPhone 14 Pro. The larger model will be called the iPhone 14 Max.
These devices have a new front design with a smaller cutout for the front camera that enlarges the screen of the device. Apple calls the cutout a “dynamic island” and it can essentially show notifications or other system information, such as baseball scores.
The iPhone 14 Pro has a lot of new features:
- An always-on display that doesn’t turn off when not in use.
- Apple also introduced a new low power mode to extend battery life.
- It uses Apple’s latest A16 Bionic chip, which Apple says was built on a 4-nanometer process.
- A 48-megapixel camera thanks to a larger sensor.
It is available in four colors, space black, silver, gold and dark purple.
Apple adds satellite emergency service feature to iPhone 14
Apple announced an ability that has been talked about for a long time to connect its iPhone 14 series to satellites for emergency services at its Wednesday event.
The feature is designed to connect the antennas of an iPhone 14 directly to a satellite, to send a message to areas not connected by cell towers.
Ashley Williams, head of satellite modeling and simulation at Apple, said an algorithm in the phone compresses text messages to a size that “will take less than 15 seconds to send” to a satellite, before it is relayed to a ground station and an emergency service provider. .
The Emergency Satellite Service will launch in November and is included free for two years with an iPhone 14.
Satellite communications – which has several existing networks supporting specialized and purpose-built phones – is experiencing a new era of investment. Companies including by Elon Musk SpaceX and AST SpaceMobile previously announced partnerships with mobile service providers, with the same goal of bringing similar satellite services directly to mainstream consumer smartphones.
