Apple has just introduced its new iPhones: the iPhone 14 family, in addition to adding new watch models (a Apple Watch Series 8, Watch Ultrathe new Watch SE) and headphones Updated AirPods Pro. Smartphones have several innovations that deserve to be highlighted more than expected: they are faster, with better cameras, more batteries, etc. This happens every year. But they include a few things that are good to keep in mind.

No chip in the US

The The iPhone 14 family will not be sold in the US with a SIM chip tray; It only comes with an eSIM, a standard that has been on the market for several years, and many phones, including the iPhone, have a secondary line (aka dual SIM, which allows you to have two lines on a mobile phone. ). If we buy an iPhone 14 in the US, we can’t put our chip on it. We will have to go to the operator and ask them to enable the use of eSIM for our line; Claro and Movistar and Personal offer eSIM support, but in all three cases they require going through a commercial office.

Of course, those who buy the iPhone 14 in other countries (including Argentina, but not yet Brazil) will not have this problem; The SIM free version is for the United States only.

eSIM allows you to free the chip that is inserted into the phone, because it is already built into the device;  It already works in Argentina, but you need to get a QR code to activate the line on your phone

Shock detection and satellite communication for emergencies

The iPhone 14 has satellite connectivity on all four models. It allows you to send and receive text messages very slowly (Apple talks about minutes if there’s vegetation, like a treetop, between the phone and the orbiting satellite) without external antennas or changing the device’s appearance. Obviously it’s for emergencies: if we’re stuck in the middle of a mountain, etc. and will be paid. In the US and Canada it will be free for two years; It will be available in November in North America. Better to wait until 2023 for satellite 5G in this country (they promise SMS and voice calls).

Add shock detection to its four models: Uses accelerometers, GPS, and a microphone along with an algorithm to determine if we’ve had a car accident, call 911, or someone we determine. It is activated only when we are moving in the car. The new Apple Watch has it too.

Same iPhone 13 chip in two models, new screen in the other two

The The iPhone 14 has the same A15 Bionic chip than the iPhone 13, so there shouldn’t be much performance change between the two generations, apart from some optimizations that Apple adds. The A15 still has fabric to cut, so that shouldn’t be a problem. But it’s good to know. And it has a ceramic coating to protect the screen, which continues with the traditional notch (debuted by the iPhone X), unlike the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, which now have an elongated hole in the screen; Apple puts the front camera – with autofocus – and the FaceID sensor and integrates this black oval in the user interface to reveal and thus hide. Apple calls iOS a “dynamic island” that’s available to all apps.

This is what the animations look like, hiding the "dynamic island", as Apple calls the oval perforation, where the front camera and FaceID sensor are located on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

Always-on display on the Pro model

The The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max now have an always-on displayThat is, they always keep the screen on to see the clock and some notifications, without unlocking (and turning on) the screen. Unlike Android, where a special view is activated (with a black background, clock and app icons), Apple will use the same regular lock screen, but in black and white and without dynamic refresh, thanks to the fact that the OLED screen can refresh at 1 Hz (once per second). in order to save energy consumption. iPhone 14 and 14 Plus do not have this feature.

More megapixels in the Pro model

The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max offer triple rear cameras, now with a 48-megapixel main sensor; uses a technique called pixel binning (very popular on Android for years) to use four sensor elements to generate each pixel in the image; It takes four samples of light to convert them into image points and thus achieves greater fidelity and sensitivity in low-light conditions, helped in this case by the large sensor elements and the A16 Bionic chip, which is so far exclusive to these two models.
