5 features to look out for in Apple’s iPhone 14 series

If you’re considering upgrading to a new smartphone, here are five big features that would be coming to the iPhone 14 series.


Apple’s invitation for the September 7 event bears the slogan “Far out” and the poster shows the Apple logo in space. Although not confirmed, it is possible that the iPhone camera will get a new astrophotography mode. In case you didn’t know, it was the Google Pixel 4 that made astrophotography mode a thing and later brands such as Xiaomi and Vivo tried to emulate this feature and incorporated it into their smartphones.

On the Pixel smartphone, incidentally, the astrophotography mode captures and combines multiple images to achieve crisp exposure with limited noise levels when photographing the night sky. Perhaps Apple is teasing that the next iPhone will have the ability to capture the night sky in stunning quality.

leaky apple Max Weinbach said last year that the iPhone 13 would have an astrophotography mode, but when the device debuted there was no such feature. Apple may keep this feature for the iPhone 14.

Satellite connectivity

Another great feature that Apple could add to the iPhone 14 is satellite connectivity. Bloomberg reports that the technology will allow iPhone owners to text emergency services and contacts or report an emergency when no cell service is available. The functionality should be integrated directly into iMessage. Although Apple hasn’t confirmed whether the next iPhone will be able to communicate with satellites instead of a cellular network in an emergency, the space-themed “Far Out” invitation hints at the long-standing feature on iPhones.

In a series of tweets, Tim Farrar, a satellite communications consultant at California-based research firm Telecom, Media and Finance Associates, claims that Apple is likely to partner with Globalstar for upcoming satellite connectivity on the iPhone.

The rumor is too hard to ignore, too, because earlier this week US telecom operator T-mobile and SpaceX said their companies were working to “end mobile dead zones” and would launch a new mobile-enabled service. by second-generation Starlink satellites. and T-Mobile bandwidth. The idea is to bring high-speed internet access to rural areas of the United States with the help of SpaceX’s constellation of low-Earth-orbit satellites.

Permanent display

Android phones have had an always-on display mode for years. But it looks like Apple is also preparing to introduce an always-on mode for iPhones with a single plug. For those unfamiliar, an always-on display shows the time or notifications – on the screen, even when the phone is locked. This is a useful feature, which makes it easy to see notifications without turning on the phone. The Apple Watch Series 5 and newer already offer always-on displays, and it’s likely that Apple will take the same approach and bring it to the iPhone. However, this feature will be limited to the iPhone 14 Pro and might not affect lower-end models at all. Only time will tell.

Improved selfie camera

For the first time in years, Apple will install a high-quality front-facing camera on its iPhone 14. ET News reports that the module, which is provided by LG, brings advanced functionality to the iPhone’s front camera, including autofocus. This level of upgrade promises an improved aperture for better depth of field in portrait mode and video calls. In fact, according to ET News’ source, “The unit price of the front camera of the iPhone 14 has almost tripled compared to previous models. The bad news is that the additional cost of the camera module will increase the price of the iPhone 14. iPhone 14 up to $100.

Better cameras

The iPhone’s imaging prowess is unmatched, and if you own the iPhone 13 Pro Max, you already know how superior the camera experience is. With the iPhone 14 series, Apple will once again improve the camera experience, with a focus on achieving excellent low-light performance. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max are said to have an all-new 48MP main sensor, up from 12MP on the iPhone 13. This will be Apple’s biggest increase in camera resolution in seven years. Considering the quality of iPhone cameras with a 12MP sensor, a new 48MP sensor will bring low-light detail and improvements that could impact overall image quality. Rumors, however, claim that standard iPhones will continue to feature the older 12 MP sensor. If there’s a big question mark floating over this event, it’s whether Apple is adding a periscope lens to the high-end iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. We will have to wait until Apple announces the iPhone 14 on September 7.
