With a new 12MP Main camera with a bigger sensor and larger pixels, a new front TrueDepth camera, the Ultra Wide camera to capture more of a scene, and Photonic Engine for a huge jump in low-light performance, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus set a new bar for picture and video capture.
Photonic Engine boosts mid- to low-light performance for images across all cameras by up to 2x on the Ultra Wide camera, 2x on the TrueDepth camera, and an amazing 2.5x on the new Main camera, thanks to a deep integration of hardware and software. Photonic Engine delivers this remarkable gain in quality by using Deep Fusion’s computational benefits early in the image process to give amazing detail, preserve delicate textures, provide richer color, and retain more information in a shot.
Upgrades and improvements for dual-camera systems include:
- A new Main camera with a bigger /1.5 aperture and 1.9 m pixels for higher resolution and motion freezing, less noise, quicker exposure times, and sensor-shift optical picture stabilization.
- A new front-facing TrueDepth camera with a /1.9 aperture for improved low-light performance in images and video. For the first time, it can focus even faster in low light and capture group shots from a greater distance.
- A new Action mode provides an extraordinarily smooth-looking video that compensates for large shaking, movements, and vibrations, even when footage is shot in the middle of the action.
- The Ultra Wide camera, with Photonic Engine, provides a distinct viewpoint for broader views as well as enhancements to low-light photos.
- A 10 percent brighter True Tone flash with increased uniformity for more consistent illumination.
- Cinematic mode is now available in 4K at 30 frames per second and 4K at 24 frames per second.
- End-to-end Dolby Vision HDR, only accessible on iPhone.
The iPhone 14 series as a whole provides ground-breaking safety features that can give emergency help when it counts most. Collision Detection on iPhone can now identify a serious automobile crash and automatically summon emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to access their iPhone, thanks to a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force values of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope. These capabilities expand on existing components such as the barometer, which can now detect changes in cabin pressure, the GPS for extra input for speed variations, and the microphone5, which can distinguish loud noises characteristic of serious automobile accidents.
Even improved accuracy is provided by advanced Apple-designed motion algorithms trained on over a million hours of real-world driving and collision record data. Crash Detection, when paired with Apple Watch, effortlessly harnesses the unique strengths of both devices to efficiently get people aid. When a catastrophic accident is detected, the emergency services call interface appears on Apple Watch since it is closer to the user, but the call is sent through iPhone if it is in range of the best available connection.
The iPhone 14 series also has Satellite Emergency SOS, which combines bespoke components closely linked with software to allow antennas to connect directly to a satellite, enabling communication with emergency services while outside of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. Satellites are moving targets with limited bandwidth, and communications might take minutes to arrive. Because every second matters, iPhone front-loads a few critical questions to assess the user’s position and shows them where to aim their phone to connect to a satellite using Emergency SOS via satellite.
The first inquiry and subsequent communications are then sent to centers manned by Appletrained professionals who can contact Apple on the user’s behalf. When there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, users may manually communicate their position with Find My via satellite, offering a sense of security when trekking or camping off the grid. Emergency SOS via satellite will be available to consumers in the United States and Canada in November, and it will be free for the first two years.
The A15 Bionic chip boosts the performance of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. The 5-core GPU is still faster than the competition at any price, enabling even smoother graphics for video apps and high-performance gaming, as well as powering incredible camera features like Photonic Engine and Cinematic mode, all while delivering impressive battery life and protecting privacy and security with the Secure Enclave. The 6-core CPU handles demanding tasks quickly and effectively, while the 16-core Neural Engine can perform 15.8 trillion operations per second, allowing for even faster machine learning computations for iOS 16 features and third-party app experiences.
With 5G, iPhone users can stay in touch, share, and enjoy content with super-fast downloads and uploads, better streaming, and real-time connectivity. Support for 5G on iPhone now extends to over 250 carrier partners in over 70 markets around the world, with expanded support for standalone networks. eSIM enables consumers to connect to or rapidly transfer their existing plans digitally, is a more secure alternative to a physical SIM card, and allows users to utilize several cellular plans on a single device. For US versions, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus eliminates the SIM tray, allowing consumers to set up their smartphones more quickly and simply.
Later this autumn, for the first time, Apple Fitness+ will be available to all iPhone users in the 21 countries where it is available, even if they do not own an Apple Watch.
