Apple just concluded one of its busiest events in recent memory, announcing 8 different products. The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max were the center of the spotlight. Gone is the mini variant from the last two years and a bigger 6.7-inch Plus model takes its place. Basically a more affordable way to get the large-screen iOS smartphone.
Interestingly enough, the non-Pro iPhone 14 duo settles for last year’s A15 Bionic chip and only the Pro series benefit from the newer A16 Bionic SoC. At least the non-Pro models get a decent camera upgrade with bigger sensors.
One of the most notable changes for the Pro models is the smaller cutout that can blend with the UI elements. And of course, the new main 48MP sensor.
Apple also showcased the new premium Apple Watch Ultra with a huge 49mm case. The watch offers bigger display, longer battery life and a slew of new fitness-related features. It’s more durable too – it can withstand diving of up to 40 meters and a third-party app can give you real-time information during your dive.
There was also the Watch Series 8 and a successor to last year’s Watch SE.
