Just a few hours ago Apple introduced the new iPhone 14. Let’s see what did Apple done with their latest iPhone model and accessories.
At this year’s September Apple event, which was named “Far out”, several new innovations from this company were presented. IOS geeks had the opportunity to get acquainted with the new eighth-generation Apple watches, headphones, as well as the long-awaited latest phone models – the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus, as well as the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models.
8th Gen Apple Watch
To open the event, the company’s CEO Tim Cook introduced the eighth-generation Apple Watch, calling it “lifesaving.”
What does the eighth generation Apple Watch offer?
The new Apple Watch series eight is resistant to swimming and cracks. The watch’s health sensors still include the ability to read blood oxygen levels and EKG. Also, there is a new temperature sensor as part of advanced cycle tracking features for women’s health. Namely, the sensor will give an estimation of ovulation, but also the night temperature of the wrist in order to detect changes of only 0.1 degrees Celsius.
What makes the eighth-generation Apple Watch a real lifesaver is its crash detection feature. So, now the watch automatically contacts the emergency services and sends your location!
The new technology can sense the force and timing of an impact to determine if there has been a frontal or side impact, a rear-end collision, or if the car has rolled over.
The company states that the device is designed to protect data, while the user’s health data will be shared only with his permission.
The new mode on the watch allows the battery life to be extended from 18 to 36 hours, temporarily disabling the active screen and exercise notifications.
It comes in four colors in aluminum – black, gold, aluminum and red – and three colors in stainless steel.
Sales begin on September 16, and the price of the device ranges from $399 to $499 for a watch with cellular network.
Apple Watch SE
The more affordable version of the Apple Watch comes in silver, midnight and star. It boasts most of the security features that are characteristic of the eighth generation Apple Watch.
Features of the Apple Watch SE are:
– Larger screen;
– New plastic design on the bottom side of the watch;
– Heart rate notifications and
– Fall detection.
As the company explains, it is intended for children who do not need an iPhone. The price of the device with GPS is $249, while the price with GPS and cellular network is $299.
Apple Watch Ultra
Another novelty that has been talked about is the Apple Watch Ultra, which is intended for outdoor athletes. It comes with a new design, a larger screen and a titanium body.
Also, the screen provides more information, including a compass. In addition, the Apple Watch Ultra has a new orange “action” button for quick use while exercising or wearing gloves.
The battery life is up to 36 hours under normal use, while the low power mode setting can increase the duration to 60 hours.
It will cost $799 and hit store shelves on September 23.
New AirPods Pro 2 earphones
The new AirPods Pro 2 headphones come with an H2 chip that enables high connectivity and unique sound quality. The latest Pro headphones take the sound to a higher level, allowing you to feel as if you are at the concert of your favorite singer, according to the company.
Personalized sound brings the best experience for each individual user. With the “noise canceling” option, the experience completely changes the game. Headphones bring even better focus and the “passive noise cancellation” option.
The powerful H2 chip enables on-device processing, which reduces loud ambient noise — like passing vehicle horns, construction tools, or even loud speakers at a concert — for more comfortable everyday listening.
Four sensors on the headphones allow you to pause or play music with just one hand movement, as well as answer a call, or press the handle to change the song. All this comes with an extra size ear tip for a better fit.
With a longer battery, users can now enjoy up to six hours of active use with just one charge, while music can be listened to for up to 30 hours with the charging case.
Also, the case comes with a built-in speaker that delivers louder tones, making it even easier to locate.
Preorders start on September 9, and they will be available for sale from September 23. Their price is 249 dollars.
