Latest iPhone 14 Pro Max deals
Apple iPhone 14 range
As we saw with the 13th generation iPhone, the iPhone 14 is a set of four phones, not one. iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max will launch on Friday, September 16, with pre-orders opening today, September 9.
The base iPhone 14 and large iPhone 14 will start at £849 and £949 respectively, while the premium iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will start at £1,099 and £1,199.
Apple has made minor tweaks and major upgrades for the next generation of iPhones. Below are some of the salient features.
iPhone 14 Pro Max screen
iPhone Pro Max 14 has a 6.7-inch Super Retina XDR display and a camera notch that now changes size depending on the apps you’re using. For example, the notch will show notification text and media controls.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max display is now also ‘always on’, which means it will show basic information like the time and some notifications while in standby mode.
iPhone 14 Pro Max battery
Apple says the new iPhone Pro Max battery will last for 23 hours of video playback, and it will charge to 50% in half an hour using a 20W adapter.
A16 Bionic processor
The A16 Bionic processor debuted with the iPhone 14 Pro Max, consisting of a six-core CPU and a five-core GPU with 50% more memory bandwidth than the A15 Bionic chip of previous iPhones.
iPhone 14 Pro Max camera
Apple has finally caught up with its contemporaries by dramatically increasing the number of flagship pixels in the iPhone. iPhone 14 Pro Max features a 48MP main lens with a Quad Pixel sensor for more detailed photography.
iPhone 14 Pro: everything else
The iPhone 14 Pro Max will avoid the SIM tray slot found on the sides of all previous iPhones. Instead, the new phone will use a virtual “eSIM” — allowing users to have multiple phone numbers and data plans on the same device.
Pro Max will also use satellites to help people in danger reach emergency services if they don’t have a signal.
Finally, Apple has made the new iPhone more customizable with many fonts and color schemes to choose from as part of the new iOS16.
