Apple debuts the new ‘Plus’ Model

The iPhone 14 models are finally here! All in all, Apple launched some of its most anticipated products at its September event. Among them are the much-awaited iPhone 14 series along with the new Watch Series 8, Watch Ultra, and the next-gen AirPods Pro. Finally, after uncountable rumors and possible leaks on the iPhone 14 series, we have the legit model in our hands. However, it would be very unlikely for  Apple to not give us a massive surprise. So, we have a new iPhone 14 model with a brand-new name—the iPhone 14 Plus! Let us, hence, take a glimpse of the specs and features of the Apple iPhone 14 series. We will also go through the other products launched at the Apple September event.

iPhone 14 Models: What do we have?  

Consequently, Apple launched the iPhone 14 and the iPhone 14 Plus on 7 September. Interestingly, the new iPhones come with few new features, have a familiar design and more. Another key point is that the iPhone 14 Plus replaces the older “iPhone 13 mini” model with a bigger model with a 6.7-inch screen.

According to Apple, all US iPhone 14 models will no longer use physical SIM cards. In fact, these will be replaced with a digital eSIM that can support multiple phone numbers and also offer better security.

  • will continue with the older A15 Bionic chipset
  • five colors including a new light blue

  • new 48MP main camera
  • satellite connectivity (limited to the US and Canada for now)
  • 6.1-inch OLED display (Pro); 6.7-inch OLED display (Pro Max)
  • Pill-shaped notch, with Apple converting it into a ‘dynamic island’ for displaying animations, notifications based on the app that’s open
  • better low-light photography and redesigned flash for iPhone 14 Pro

To clarify, the iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max are Apple’s high-end products. As has been stated, the products will be open to preorder starting on 7 September and will go live for sale on 16 September.

Apple’s AirPods Pro 

To begin with, the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) has an enhanced listening experience with active noise-cancellation. Moreover, the price of $249 (Rs 19,851.82). Above all, the AirPods will go on sale on 23 September.

Here are the features of the AirPods Pro 2nd Generation:

  • New touch control to adjust the volume
  • Longer battery life with up to 6 hours of listening time

It also comes with crash detection when driving and supports international roaming. As a matter of fact, it will be available for pre-order today and the sale starts on September 16. Above all, Apple has also revealed the Watch SE 2 as well.

Apple Watch Series 8 and Watch Ultra Meanwhile, the new Apple Watch Ultra is geared for the pros. It comes with a special 49mm case, which also makes it one of the biggest displays on an Apple Watch.
