Apple on Wednesday 7th September unveiled the sixteenth generation of the iPhone, The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus, with a similar design as the iPhone 13 including the A15 Bionic chipset from the previous generation. Since the Mini option is not available this year, your alternatives are huge or bigger. Apple is replacing the actual SIM tray with the eSIM in the US models, unlike the global version. Starting at $799 which is approximately 3.2 millions UGX for the basic iPhone 14 model and $899 which is approximately 3.5 millions UGX for the 14 Plus before taxes.
Both phones offer Emergency SOS, which enables emergency messages using satellite communications when you are beyond of a cell signal’s range. For the first two years, consumers in Canada and the USA will be able to use a new service that Apple has built around this feature for free.
The screen size of the iPhone 14 remains the same at 6.1 inches, while the 14 Plus delivers a huge 6.7 inches. According to Apple, the 14 Plus model has the longest battery life of any iPhone. Both models still have the A15 Bionic chipset from last year, which is a significant deviation for Apple given that it usually releases a new processor for use throughout its entire iPhone lineup each year. An ultrawide and a new 12-megapixel main camera with an f/1.5 aperture and sensor-based stabilization are available on the camera front. Apple states that the image quality in low light has improved by 49%, and Night Mode is now twice as quick. A new 12-megapixel TrueDepth camera with autofocus is also available. Apple claims to be implementing its “Photonic Engine” technology, which improves color rendering and low-light performance, earlier in the image pipeline.
Action Option, a new stabilization mode for video recording, makes use of the entire sensor to provide gimbal-like steadiness. Prices for the iPhone 14 appear considerable, and it launches at a time when inflation is strong.
