Apple unveiled the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro at its annual product event on September 13, delivering significant enhancements to its popular smartphone line. The iPhone 14 features the most advanced chip ever in a smartphone, higher quality cameras, longer battery life, 5G cellular connectivity, and a new flat-edge design. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max also include a new high-efficiency display, triple-lens rear camera system, Cinematic mode, and Apple-designed A15 Bionic chip.
The A15 Bionic chip delivers incredible machine learning performance and advanced features like Live Text and Visual Look Up. Using ML models trained on a wide range of data, the A15 can recognize text in videos, photos and live scenes in front of the iPhone. It understands the world around you in a whole new way and enables exciting new capabilities through third-party apps as well. The ultra-fast A15 Bionic combined with the powerful Neural Engine allows the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max to blaze through demanding tasks while delivering stunning augmented reality experiences.
A significant upgrade to the rear camera system delivers stunning pro-level photography capabilities and video quality. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max feature a new three-lens system with an all-new Wide, Ultra Wide and Telephoto cameras. Wide and Ultra Wide cameras provide a broader field of view and bigger pixels for better light gathering and sharpness. Ultra Wide delivers a 120° field of view, extending even wider for more scenic shots. The longer Telephoto focal length of 85mm provides tighter crops and portrait shots without subject distortion. Cinematic mode enables rack focus and shallow depth of field shots with advanced bokeh simulation.
A higher capacity battery and faster-charging 20W adapter via Lightning or 27W adapter via USB‐C increase battery life through the day. Battery life is up to 2.5 hours longer on iPhone 14 and up to 3 hours longer on iPhone 14 Pro compared to iPhone 13. A20W adapter and Lightning to USB‐C cable enable faster charging and additional wired charging options. In Finder tests, iPhone 14 Pro delivered up to 22 hours of video playback—the longest yet on an iPhone. iPhone 14 provides an all-screen design with flat-edge stainless steel sides for a premium, minimalist aesthetic. The larger Super Retina XDR display, larger capacity batteries and higher refresh rates require the redesign. The titanium partially assembled frame makes iPhone 14 Pro the most durable iPhone yet while retaining a lightweight feel.
In summary, Apple delivered an incredibly advanced smartphone line with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Featuring the fastest chips, highest quality cameras, longest battery life and most advanced displays ever in an iPhone, the new models are designed for a new generation of experiences. The iPhone 14 Pro pushes the boundaries of pro photography, augmented reality and video creation. Aflat-edge design, Super Retina XDR display and A15 Bionic processor bring users to new creative peaks while refining the craft of smartphone storytelling. iPhone 14 is the most advanced smartphone Apple has ever made, paving the way for the future of the mobile revolution.
