Curious to know what’s new from Apple? The iPhone 14, Apple Watch 8, and updated AirPods Pro 2 have arrived.
Let’s take a quick peek at some of the latest product announcements before focusing on the new AirPods Pro 2.
- iPhone 14 | Not many changes here in terms of an upgrade from last year’s model. Apple added a 5-core GPU for improved performance and a bigger sensor for better low-light shots. But the camera sensor is the same as last year.
- iPhone 14 Plus | Features for this one are the same as the iPhone 14 with a larger screen and bigger battery.
- iPhone 14 Pro & Max | Apple didn’t hike the cost of its premium offering this year. They’re powered by the A16 Bionic chipset and bring a 48MP main camera. The notch is finally gone and replaced with a cutout called ‘Dynamic Island.’
- Apple Watch 8 | This version now includes a temperature sensor and a new low-power mode that Apple says will double the watch’s battery life. Apple also debuted the Apple Watch SE (2022) and the Apple Watch Ultra for its premium watch offering. Apple Watch Ultra promises better GPS tracking, double battery life, and a higher price point ($799).
AirPods Pro 2 | This refresh of Apple’s $249 wireless earbuds gets the new H2 chip and a new low-distortion audio driver, and a custom amplifier for improved sound. Apple says the front camera on the iPhone can create a customized spatial audio profile. The battery life advertised is six hours of playback.
The AirPods 2 also come with a refreshed case and extra-small ear tip size in the box. The refreshed case features a speaker on the bottom to make it easier to find using the ‘Find My’ app.
Unfortunately, this iteration of wireless earbuds still doesn’t support high-resolution audio. Despite that, Apple says the sound quality should be better with richer bass and more dynamic audio across the entire frequency range.
