Apple has just concluded its autumn iPhone event, during which it unveiled new iPhones, AirPods, and Apple Watches. Beginning of the event Tim Cook said that the event will center on the iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch.
Here’s what it announced:
Apple will begin accepting orders for the new iPhones on Friday, and the company did not boost pricing as some analysts had predicted. The new Apple Watches will be available for purchase on Wednesday, while the new AirPods Pro will be released on September 23.
The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, has just introduced the high-end versions for this year, the iPhone 14 pro.
The model with a 6.1-inch display is known as the iPhone 14 Pro. The larger iPhone will be known as the iPhone 14 Max.
The iPhone 14 Pro will cost $999, while the larger variant will cost $1099. This is the same price as models from last year. They are available for preorder on Friday and will ship the following week.
These devices have a revised front design with a smaller cutout for the front-facing camera, resulting in a larger display. Apple refers to the cutout as a "dynamic island," and it can display notifications and other system data, such as baseball scores.
It is available in four hues, including space black, silver, gold, and deep purple.
Apple adds emergency satellite service to the iPhone 14
Wednesday at its event, Apple confirmed a long-rumored capability to connect the iPhone 14 series to satellites for emergency services via a partnership with Globalstar.
The capability is designed to connect the antennas of an iPhone 14 directly to a satellite in order to deliver a message in locations without cell tower coverage.
Ashley Williams, Apple's manager of satellite modeling and simulation, stated that a phone's algorithm compresses text messages to a size that "takes less than 15 seconds to transfer" to a satellite, before relaying it to a ground station and an emergency service provider.
The emergency satellite service begins in November and is offered for two years free of charge with the purchase of an iPhone 14.
Globalstar stated in a filing that it will "allocate 85 percent of its current and future network capacity" to support the iPhone 14 emergency satellite service.
Satellite communications, which already have many networks that allow specialized, purpose-built phones, is entering a new phase of investment. Companies such as Elon Musk's SpaceX and AST SpaceMobile have already announced agreements with mobile service providers with the aim of bringing satellite services straight to conventional consumer handsets.
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, has just launched the iPhone 14. Apple has thus far introduced two new iPhone models: the iPhone 14 Plus and the iPhone 14.
The iPhone 14 Plus replaces the iPhone 13 mini with a larger variant featuring a 6.7-inch display.
The iPhone 14 will begin at $799, whereas the iPhone 14 Plus will cost $899. The smaller version is available for preorder beginning on September 9 and will go on sale on September 16. However, the Plus model will not come until October.
Apple said that all iPhone 14 models in the United States will no longer use physical SIM cards, replacing them with a digital eSIM that supports multiple phone numbers and is more secure.
Apple introduces new AirPods Pro with a price of $249
Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed a new edition of Apple's noise-canceling, wireless AirPods Pro headphones.
They cost $249 and will go on sale on September 23 at that price.
Apple claims they have improved sound quality and clarity due to an Apple H2 chip inside, an upgrade from the H1 chip in the previous edition.
Apple introduces the ultra-premium Apple Watch Ultra, priced at $799.
Apple has officially unveiled the Apple Watch Ultra, a new high-end watch with a redesigned design, a larger display, and a titanium shell. The item is designed for outdoor athletes.
It will cost at least $799 and will be available on September 23. Wednesday is available for preorders.
It features a redesigned face with additional information, including a compass. Additionally, it has a new orange "action" button for usage while exercising or wearing gloves. It may also display the user's depth while swimming.
Here are the announcements made by Apple at its iPhone 14 event.
In a promotional film, Apple's chief operating officer Jeff Williams stated, "Every detail has been developed to make the most durable and capable Apple Watch ever."
Apple has introduced a revised Apple Watch SE, a lower-priced version of its flagship Series 8.
It will retail for $249 or $299 beginning September 16. Apple markets the iPad Mini as a tablet for children who may not require their own iPhones.
Apple reveals Series 8 Apple Watch with temperature sensor. Apple CEO Tim Cook began the video-focused launch event with Apple Watch-related announcements.
The new smartphone will be known as the Series 8, according to Apple COO Jeff Williams. It contains a new temperature sensor that may be used to monitor health data, such as ovulation, and is more durable than prior models.
It will be available in four hues of aluminum, including black, gold, red, and aluminum, and three colors of stainless steel. A model made of aluminum costs at least $399, while one with cellular connectivity costs at least $499.
Apple claims that the device is meant to keep data secure and confidential and that health information would only be shared with the user's express permission.
Additionally, Apple incorporated a new security feature backed by two motion sensors. The new car collision detection system can automatically contact emergency services if it detects a major car accident.
By temporarily removing the always-on display and workout alerts, a new mode on Apple Watches can prolong the device's battery life from 18 hours to 36 hours. Cook began by displaying a video of individuals reading letters to him about how the wearable has assisted them in obtaining aid during critical situations.
