As expected, Apple’s “Far Out” event featured the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro. Apple also announced new Apple Watch models and AirPods Pro 2 wireless headphones.
Apple iPhone 14 and 14 Plus
Apple unveiled the iPhone 14, and iPhone 14 Plus. Both models have 6.1- and 6.7-inch displays. Both variants have better thermal performance, water- and dust-resistant ceramic barrier, and an 8-core A15 Bionic CPU. The new 12-megapixel camera offers enhanced motion freezing and sensor-shift. Both cameras use a new image signal processor. You can merge many frames into a single image using a “Photonic engine” on uncompressed images. Action mode captures sharper footage in action without extra gear and supports Dolby Vision HDR.
New models have five colours. Apple’s battery lasts all day. No models will use a physical SIM card with eSIM.
Apple also emphasised crash detection for its new Apple Watch models. Revisions to the emergency SOS feature allow you to use it even if you don’t have service. The UI will show you where to move your phone to connect to the satellite, and typical inquiries and responses will be provided as buttons. In November, emergency features will be free for two years.
iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus come in midnight, blue, starlight, purple, and Product RED, with 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB of storage. Preorders start on 9/9. The iPhone 14 launches on September 16 and the 14 Plus on October 7.

Apple unveiled two new Apple Watch models: Series 8 and Ultra.
The Apple Watch Series 8 has an always-on display with thinner borders and is swim-proof, dust-proof, and crack-resistant.
