A Closer Look at Apple’s Latest Product Releases
For a certain segment of the population, Apple’s new product releases feel a lot like Christmas. Whether you’ve been looking forward to them all year or you just want a quick overview of what the Cupertino tech firm is up to next, we’ve got you covered below.
iPhone 14 Pro and Max
Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the brand new iPhone 14 Pro and Max. The only meaningful distinction between these two high-end iPhone models is the size of the screen. The Pro model has a 6.1-inch screen, whereas the Max increases that to 6.7 inches.
Both models come packed with a lot of cool new features, including the all-new dynamic island, which allows users to multitask easier by putting all of the apps that they’re using in a single place instead of asking them to visit each app one by one.
Other new features on these iPhones include:
- An always-on display
- More battery efficiency in the form of an upgraded low-power mode
- A new A16 bionic chip for faster speeds and boosted performance
- A 48-megapixel camera with a bigger sensor
- Better low-light photography and a redesigned flash system
One of the most surprising parts of the announcement was that the prices for these two phones won’t be more than last year’s models, which also retailed for $999 and $1,099, respectively.
Apple Watch Ultra
Apple has also announced the all-new Apple Watch Ultra. It’s a higher-end version of the flagship Apple Watch and has been designed with a bigger screen, a more durable titanium case, and a brand new design.
The new design is targeted at outdoor athletes. It features an action button that’s for quick use while working out. The watch also can be used at deeper depths while diving.
The new Apple Watch Ultra costs $799 and is available in three different styles.
AirPods Pro 2
Finally, Apple has also announced a new version of its famous AirPods Pro. The first version of the wireless earbuds grew to prominence thanks to a snug fit and powerful noise-canceling technology.
Apple is saying that it’s new AirPods Pro 2 has better sound quality and clarity. The company says that this is because it has inserted a more powerful Apple H2 chip on the inside of the headphones.
Not only that but the AirPods Pro 2 is supposed to have noise cancellation that’s twice as good as it was on the predecessor. That makes these upgraded AirPods a great fit for folks who rely on noise cancellation when they’re wearing headphones.
Other new features on these include:
- A new touch control system for easier volume adjustment
- A new speaker on the case
- Ability to be charged with MagSafe chargers
- Longer battery life with up to six hours of use for each charge
The AirPods Pro 2 retail for $249.
