Apple has introduced iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, featuring two sizes, 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches, in a sophisticated design with impressive camera upgrades and groundbreaking new safety capabilities.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus take stunning photos and video with a powerful camera system featuring new Main and front TrueDepth cameras, the Ultra Wide camera for unique perspectives and Photonic Engine, an enhanced image pipeline.
Both models include the A15 Bionic chip with a 5-core GPU, which offers incredible performance and efficiency for demanding workloads and is designed with privacy and security built in. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus introduce critical safety capabilities such as Crash Detection, a first in the industry. And with amazing battery life, industry-leading durability features, and super-fast 5G, this iPhone line-up is more advanced than ever before. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be available in midnight, blue, starlight, purple and (PRODUCT)RED finishes.
“Our customers rely on their iPhone every day and iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus introduce groundbreaking new technologies and important safety capabilities. With the new, larger 6.7-inch display on iPhone 14 Plus, users can enjoy more content onscreen when browsing the web and even more text,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “Both phones have a powerful new Main camera with a huge leap in low-light performance, advanced connectivity capabilities with 5G and eSIM and the incredible performance of A15 Bionic, which helps enable even better battery life. All of this, tightly integrated with iOS 16, makes iPhone more essential than ever.”
Available in the popular 6.1-inch size and a stunning new 6.7-inch size, iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature a durable and sleek aerospace-grade aluminium design in five beautiful finishes. The larger display of iPhone 14 Plus is great for streaming movies and playing games, and iPhone 14 Plus boasts the best battery life ever in an iPhone.
Both models have an updated internal design for better thermal performance, gorgeous Super Retina XDR displays with OLED technology that supports 1200 nits of peak HDR brightness, a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and Dolby Vision.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus also feature the durable Ceramic Shield front cover — exclusive to iPhone and tougher than any other smartphone glass and are protected from common spills and accidents with water- and dust- resistance.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus introduce a new standard for photo and video capture with a new 12MP Main camera featuring a larger sensor and larger pixels, a new front TrueDepth camera, the Ultra Wide camera to capture more of a scene and Photonic Engine for a giant leap in low-light performance.
Through a deep integration of hardware and software, Photonic Engine improves mid- to low-light performance for photos across all cameras: up to 2x on the Ultra Wide camera, 2x on the TrueDepth camera and an impressive 2.5x on the new Main camera. Photonic Engine enables this dramatic increase in quality by applying the computational benefits of Deep Fusion earlier in the imaging process to deliver extraordinary detail, and preserve subtle textures, provide better colour and maintain more information in a photo.
The entire iPhone 14 line-up introduces groundbreaking safety capabilities that can provide emergency assistance when it matters most.
With a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope, Crash Detection on iPhone can now detect a severe car crash and automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone. These capabilities build on existing components, like the barometer, which can now detect cabin pressure changes, the GPS for additional input for speed changes and the microphone which can recognise loud noises typified by severe car crashes.
Advanced Apple-designed motion algorithms trained with over a million hours of real-world driving and crash record data provide even better accuracy. When combined with Apple Watch, Crash Detection seamlessly leverages the unique strength of both devices to get users help efficiently. When a severe crash is detected, the emergency services call interface will appear on Apple Watch, as it is most likely to be in closer proximity to the user, while the call is placed through iPhone if it is in range for the best possible connection.
A15 Bionic brings incredible performance to iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.
Still faster than all the competition at any price, the 5-core GPU enables even smoother graphics for video apps and high-performance gaming and powers 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 smoothly and efficiently and the 16-core Neural Engine is capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second, enabling even faster machine learning computations for features in iOS 16 and third-party app experiences.
iPhone offers users incredibly fast downloads and uploads, better streaming and real-time connectivity with 5G to help them stay in touch, share and enjoy content. Support for 5G on iPhone now extends to over 250 carrier partners in over 70 markets around the world with expanded support for stand-alone networks. eSIM allows users to easily connect or quickly transfer their existing plans digitally, is a more secure alternative to a physical SIM card and allows for multiple mobile plans on a single device.
Later this year, for the first time ever Apple Fitness+ will be available for all iPhone users to subscribe to and enjoy in the 21 countries it is offered in, even if they don’t have an Apple Watch. iPhone users will have access to the entire service featuring over 3,000 studio-style workouts and meditations, all led by a diverse and inclusive team of trainers. Fitness+ users will see onscreen trainer guidance and interval timing, and estimated calories burned will be used to make progress on their Move ring. Fitness+ will be fully integrated with the Fitness app coming with iOS 16 and located in the middle tab, where users can stay motivated to close their Move ring through awards, activity sharing and more. Users only need an iPhone to sign up, and can then experience Fitness+ on iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature iOS 16, offering a reimagined Lock Screen along with new communication, sharing and intelligence features that together change the way users experience iPhone.
The Lock Screen is more personal, beautiful and helpful than ever with a multilayered effect that artfully sets subjects of photos in front of the time and newly designed widgets that offer information at a glance. For Lock Screen inspiration, the wallpaper gallery offers a range of options, including Apple collections, a Weather wallpaper to see live weather conditions as they change throughout the day, an Astronomy wallpaper for views of the Earth, moon and solar system and many more. With Messages, users can now edit or recall recently sent messages and mark conversations as unread to revisit them later. iCloud Shared Photo Library makes it even easier to share a collection of photos with family. Live Text gets more powerful with the ability to recognise text in video and quickly convert currency, translate text and more, and Visual Look Up adds a new feature that allows users to tap and hold on the subject of an image to lift it from the background and place it in apps like Messages.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are designed to minimise their impact on the environment, including antenna lines that use upcycled plastic water bottles that have been chemically transformed into a stronger, higher-performance material. iPhone 14 models also use 100 per cent recycled rare earth elements in all magnets including those used in MagSafe and 100 per cent recycled tungsten in the Taptic Engine. Both models also include 100 per cent recycled tin in the solder of multiple printed circuit boards and 100 per cent recycled gold in the plating of multiple printed circuit boards and in the wire of all cameras. Fibre-based packaging does not use outer plastic wrap, bringing Apple closer to its goal of completely removing plastic from all packaging by 2025.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus will be available in midnight, blue, starlight, purple and (PRODUCT)RED in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities.
Customers in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Spain,Thailand, the UAE, the UK, the US, and more than 30 other countries and regions will be able to pre-order iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus on Friday, 9th September 2022, with iPhone 14 availability beginning Friday, 16th September 2022, and iPhone 14 Plus beginning Friday, 7th October 2022.
