Apple finally lifted the curtain on the much-anticipated iPhone 14 series at its ‘Far out’ mega event on September 7. The unveiling of the next generation of Apple’s flagship smartphones put an end to the speculation and rumors that have been rife since the Cupertino-based tech giant announced the fall event.

As expected, the four devices that make up the iPhone 14 series were the main attraction at Apple’s fall event, which was also the company’s first indoor event since the pandemic.

As expected, the iPhone 14 lineup doesn’t include the iPhone mini — instead, it’s been replaced by the iPhone 14 Plus, a larger iPhone with a 6.7-inch display. The devices in the series are the base model iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Let’s see what these devices have to offer.

1. iPhone 14

The base iPhone 14 is equipped with an improved version of the A15 bionic chipset that powers the iPhone 13 series, and boasts all-day battery life.

The iPhone 14 has a neat camera system. There’s a new 12MP main camera with f/1.5 aperture and sensor-shift OIS – the wider aperture means you can now take better photos in low light. The ultra-wide camera remains unchanged, but the camera system gets a bigger sensor and bigger pixels. For the front camera, there’s a new true-depth camera with autofocus and a wider aperture, and it can focus faster in low light.

Don’t you hate it when shaky hands ruin a perfectly good video? Well, Apple has offered you a solution and it comes with the 6.1-inch iPhone 14. According to the company, the new Action Mode will make the video much more stable.

If you’re from the US, say goodbye to the SIM tray. Apple is bringing eSim features to the iPhone 14, which will make things more secure.

The device comes in a total of five colors including Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple and Product Red. It also brings more safety and security features with crash detection and emergency SOS via satellite connectivity. This also applies to the iPhone 14 Plus and will be free for the first two years. However, the feature remains limited (on both devices) to the US and Canadian markets (for now).

If you think this device is for you, you can pre-order it from September 9 before it goes on sale a week later. It will cost $799.

2. iPhone 14 Plus

An upgrade from the vanilla iPhone 14, the device replaced what was the “mini” version of the iPhone. Offering a 6.7-inch OLED display with 1,000 nits of brightness, the iPhone 14 Plus is equipped with a 12MP 4K camera on the front and back, which is similar to the iPhone 14’s camera setup.

Both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus get a 5-core GPU. The iPhone 14 Plus will be priced at $899 and will hit the market on October 7.

3. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 pro Max

The iPhone 14 series has two models – the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max (which comes with a 6.7-inch Always-on display). The Pro model has a 6.1-inch display – the same as the base iPhone 14 model – but it (along with the Pro Max) is equipped with a more powerful chipset in the A16 bionic chip, which is built on a 4-nanometer process and touted as the most the fastest chip on the market. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max also come with a 6-core processor with two high-performance cores, as well as an Always-on display.

The iPhone 14 Pro also comes with an Always-On display and better camera performance compared to the iPhone 13 Pro models. Additionally, the notch was replaced with a pill-shaped perforated hole cut out. But it’s more than that—Apple has dubbed it Dynamic Island, which features unique animations that appear on certain occasions, such as when you receive a phone call or connect your AirPods.

The device comes in four colors – Space Black, Silver, Gold and Deep Purple and has a peak brightness of 2000 nits.

The camera system is good – the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max have a new 48MP camera with a quad-pixel sensor. Additionally, the devices are equipped with a new 2x telephoto option, and the cameras have an af/1.78 aperture and a new 24mm focal length.

Of course, both Pro models come with satellite connectivity for emergency SOS and crash detection.

While the iPhone 14 Pro starts at $999, the iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at $1,099. Both will be available for pre-order from September 9th and will hit the market from September 16th.

4. AirPods Pro 2

The new generation of AirPods Pro (Apple CEO Tim Cook called them “the most popular headphones in the world”) brings spatial audio straight to you—personalized, just for you, with your iPhone’s camera. It features a new H2 chip and a new low-distortion audio driver that Apple says will deliver greater detail and clarity across a wider range of audio frequencies. With the new H2 chip, noise cancellation gets a boost, and Apple said Adaptive Transparency mode reduces sound from harsh ambient noise

With the device, you can listen for up to 6 hours on a single charge, which is a 33% increase over the original Air Pods Pro. You can get this device for $249 and you can pre-order them from September 9th before they hit stores on September 23rd.
