The iPhone 14 series as a whole provides ground-breaking safety features that can give emergency help when it counts most. Collision Detection on iPhone can now identify a serious automobile crash and immediately summon emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to access their iPhone, thanks to a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force values of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope. These capabilities expand on existing components such as the barometer, which can now detect changes in cabin pressure, the GPS for extra input for speed variations, and the microphone, which can distinguish loud sounds characteristic of serious automobile accidents. Even improved accuracy is provided by advanced Apple-designed motion algorithms trained on over a million hours of real-world driving and collision record data. Crash Detection, when paired with Apple Watch, effortlessly harnesses the unique strengths of both devices to swiftly get people aid. When a catastrophic accident is detected, the emergency services call interface appears on Apple Watch since it is closer to the user, but the call is sent via iPhone if it is in range for the best available connection.
The iPhone 14 series also has Satellite Emergency SOS, which combines bespoke components closely linked with software to enable antennas to connect directly to a satellite, allowing communicating with emergency services while outside of cellular or Wi-Fi coverage. Satellites are moving targets with limited bandwidth, and communications might take minutes to arrive. Because every second matters, iPhone front-loads a few critical questions to evaluate the user’s position and tells them where to aim their phone to connect to a satellite using Emergency SOS via satellite. The first inquiry and subsequent communications are then sent to centers manned by Apple trained professionals who may contact Apple on the user’s behalf. While there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connection, users may manually communicate their position with Find My via satellite, offering a feeling of security when trekking or camping off the grid. Emergency SOS via satellite will be accessible to consumers in the United States and Canada in November, and it will be free for the first two years.
A15 Bionic: A Powerhouse with a 5-Core GPU
The A15 Bionic chip boosts the performance of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. The 5-core GPU is still faster than the competition at any price, enabling even smoother graphics for video apps and high-performance gaming, as well as powering incredible camera features like Photonic Engine and Cinematic mode, all while delivering impressive battery life and protecting privacy and security with the Secure Enclave. The 6-core CPU performs demanding tasks quickly and effectively, while the 16-core Neural Engine can do 15.8 trillion operations per second, allowing for even faster machine learning calculations for iOS 16 features and third-party app experiences.
Powerful Connection Capabilities
iPhone users can keep in contact, share, and enjoy content with faster downloads and uploads, improved streaming, and real-time communication with 5G. Support for 5G on iPhone is currently available from over 250 carrier partners in over 70 countries, with enhanced support for independent networks. eSIM enables consumers to connect to or rapidly transfer their current plans digitally, is a more secure alternative to a physical SIM card, and allows users to utilise several cellular plans on a single device. For US versions, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus eliminate the SIM tray, allowing consumers to set up their smartphones more quickly and simply.
