Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max: Camera

Both these iPhones feature a 48MP main camera - first time ever on an iPhone. It is paired with a 12MP ultra-wide and a 12MP telephoto lens. The quad-pixel sensor combines every four pixels into one large quad pixel equivalent to 2.44 µm. The quad-pixel sensor also enables a 2x Telephoto option that uses the middle 12 megapixels of the sensor for full-resolution photos. The new 12MP Ultra Wide camera with 1.4 µm pixels is said to deliver sharper images with more detail, improving already powerful macro photography capabilities. The new telephoto camera offers 3x optical zoom.

Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via Satellite

The entire iPhone 14 lineup comes with crash detection and emergency SOS feature via satellite. Crash Detection on iPhone can detect a severe car crash and automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone. The iPhones have a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope.

The iPhone 14 lineup also introduces emergency SOS via satellite that combines custom components deeply integrated with software to allow antennas to connect directly to a satellite, enabling messaging with emergency services when outside of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. Emergency SOS via satellite will be available to users in the US and Canada in November, and the service will be free for two years.

Apple iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max come powered by A16 Bionic- the fastest chip in a smartphone- as claimed by Apple. They are said to deliver all-day battery life. Other features include 5G connectivity and more. Apple is also giving Fitness+ for all iPhone users with the launch of iPhone 14 series.
