Everything Apple Launched At ‘Far Out’ Event

Apple has finally launched the iPhone 14 series with a lineup of four iPhones: the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. In addition to the iPhone 14 series, Apple also launched the new Apple Watch Series 8, the Apple Watch SE and a new Apple Watch Ultra. Furthermore, the company has also refreshed its premium set of TWS earbuds with the second-generation Apple AirPods Pro. Let’s take a look at everything Apple launched at the ‘Far Out’ event.

1. iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus are the two entry-level iPhone 14 series, with the iPhone 14 Plus offering a larger screen compared to the vanilla iPhone 14. The iPhone 14 Plus replaces the ‘Mini’ iPhone and will be a larger variant of the iPhone 14. The vanilla Apple iPhone 14 comes with a 6.1-inch Super Retina XDR OLED display, the same we saw on the iPhone 13 series last year. The iPhone 14 Plus, on the other hand, comes with a 6.7-inch Super Retina HDR display. Both screens have a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, a maximum brightness of 1200 nits and support for Dolby Vision.

Both the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus have launched with a new version of the Apple A15 Bionic chip that also powers the iPhone 13 series. The new A15 Bionic on the iPhone 14 series comes with 5 GPU cores and 6 CPU cores capable of processing 15.8 trillion operations per second.

2. iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max

With the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple is finally getting rid of the notch, in favor of what the company calls Dynamic Island, a punch-hole screen with a pill-shaped cutout. Without interfering with the content on the screen, the Dynamic Island maintains an active state to give users easier access to the controls with a simple tap and hold. Background running activities such as maps, music, or a timer remain visible and interactive, and third-party apps in iOS 16 that provide information such as sports scores and ride sharing with Live Activities can use the Dynamic Island.

The iPhone 14 Pro series has an Always-On display and is powered by the latest A16 Bionic chipset with a 48MP main camera on the iPhone with a quad-pixel sensor and Photonic Engine. There is also Emergency SOS via satellite and Crash Detection.

3. Apple Watch Ultra

Apple also launched the latest Apple Watch Ultra at the iPhone 14 launch event, which comes as the high-quality and rugged Apple Watch. The Apple Watch Ultra comes with longer battery life, a larger screen, and a much more robust design compared to the Apple Watch Series 8, along with a new “Action” button for additional utility. Made from aerospace-grade titanium, the Apple Watch Ultra comes with a case that pops up to surround all the edges of the flat sapphire-colored front that protects the Retina display with 200 nits of peak brightness. Apple Watch Ultra has three built-in microphones to significantly improve the sound quality of voice calls in all conditions. It also uses an adaptive beamforming algorithm that uses the microphones to capture speech while reducing ambient noise, resulting in remarkable clarity.

The Apple Watch Ultra offers up to 36 hours of combined battery life with typical use. There’s a new action button on the Apple Watch Ultra that gives you instant access to a variety of features, including workouts, compass waypoints, backtrack, and more. The Apple Watch Ultra also uses dual-frequency GPS that integrates both L1 and L5 frequencies, resulting in one of the most accurate GPS on any smartwatch, powered by Apple’s new positioning algorithms.

4. Apple Watch Series 8″

The Apple Watch Series 8 comes as an incremental update over the Apple Watch Series 7. The new Apple Watch comes with a new health feature called Temperature Sensing, which allows the Apple Watch Series 8 to track your temperature while you sleep so you can can see the changes over time. The temperature data is used by Cycle Tracking, which, in combination with the heart rate, gives women more information about their menstrual cycle. The Apple Watch Series 8 also comes with an Always-On Retina display with a similar large screen design to the Apple Watch Series 7.

The Apple Watch Series 8 also comes with a crash detection feature. With the Crash Detection feature, Apple Watch Series 8 can detect if you’ve been in a serious car accident. When a crash is detected, Crash Detection can automatically connect you to emergency services and notify your emergency contacts.2 Crash Detection uses the combined power of an improved 3-axis gyroscope and a new g-force accelerometer with the highest dynamic range in all smartwatches. It also uses a microphone, barometer, GPS and an advanced sensor fusion algorithm trained on over 1 million hours of real-world driving and crash data to detect if you’ve been in a serious accident.

5. Apple Watch SE

The Apple Watch SE is the new affordable version of the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch SE, priced at Rs 29,900 in India, comes with a larger screen compared to its predecessor and comes with all the sensors that the Apple Watch includes, in a more affordable and accessible package. The Apple Watch SE also comes with the new Crash Detection feature, where the Apple Watch itself calls the authorities if you don’t respond after a crash. However, the Apple Watch SE lacks some features such as ECG, body temperature sensor, and more.

6. Apple AirPods Pro 2

The second-generation Apple AirPods Pro are finally here. With the new Apple AirPods Pro, Apple claims twice as much better active noise cancellation and improved sound quality. The Apple AirPods Pro 2 comes with a new Apple H2 chip that enables “breakthrough” audio performance, including upgrades to active noise cancellation and transparency mode. The Apple H2 chip enables on-device processing, reducing loud ambient noise such as a passing car siren, construction tools, or even loudspeakers at a concert. The AirPods Pro 2 also enables personalized spatial audio, a new listening experience that Apple claims is even more immersive. With a new low-distortion audio driver and custom amplifier, AirPods Pro now offer richer bass and crystal-clear sound across a wider frequency range.

New convenience features on the AirPods Pro 2 include longer battery life. Apple claims up to 1.5 hours of additional listening time for up to six hours with ANC, and the case allows for four additional charge cycles, resulting in a combined battery backup of 30 hours. There is also a new charging case, which you can now also charge with the Apple Watch charger. Apart from this, the case now has a loop that allows you to secure your AirPods Pro, and there’s also a small speaker on the charging case to make noise when plugged in or when the user is looking for their AirPods.
