Tech giant Apple unveiled four forthcoming iPhone 14 models on Wednesday, promising the next-generation lineup is faster, easier to use, offers better safety features and has superior cameras.
The iPhone 14 will be 6.1 inches and the iPhone 14 Plus will be 6.7 inches. The phones will be powered by a 5-core GPU and the A15 Bionic chip.
Features include a durable Ceramic Shield front cover; a 12 megapixel main camera; a front TrueDepth camera and an UltraWide camera; crash detection; and emergency SOS via satellite.
The company also introduced the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The phones are powered by a 5-core GPU with 50% more memory bandwidth and the A16 Bionic chip, which Apple says is "the fastest chip ever in a smartphone." They also have a novel interface design called the Dynamic Island, which gives users greater access to controls without impeding content on the screen.
The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max have the first-ever 48 megapixel main camera on an iPhone, which features a quad-pixel sensor, and a Photonic Engine, an enhanced image pipeline that dramatically improves low-light photos. Other features include always-on display, crash detection and emergency SOS via satellite.
Pricing for the iPhone 14, 14 Plus, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will start at $799, $899, $999 and $1,099, respectively. Pre-orders begin Friday with availability for the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max starting Sept. 16 and the iPhone 14 Plus starting Oct. 7.
The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will come in Midnight, Blue, Starlight, Purple and Product Red with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage capacities. The iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will come in deep purple, silver, gold, and space black and 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage capacities
All U.S. iPhone 14 models will utilize a digital eSIM that supports multiple phone numbers and offers improved security.
