Upgrades to the iPhone 14 Enhance Safety and Security
The iPhone 14 has a number of upgrades to enhance its safety and security. This includes a new camera and higher-end hardware. Its dual-core accelerometer and high-dynamic-range gyroscope are powerful enough to detect a serious accident and notify emergency services. It also has a barometer and GPS to monitor changes in cabin pressure and speed, and a microphone for hearing car crash noises.
The iPhone 14 will come with the new iOS 16 operating system, which includes an overhauled lock screen. It will also include a shared cloud-based photo library. The phone also features a 12MP main camera with a larger aperture. This improves low-light performance by 49 per cent and cuts exposure time in Night Mode by half. The ultra-wide camera will also return. In addition to this, the TrueDepth front-facing camera will be 38 per cent more effective in low-light situations. This camera also has auto-focus and a new TrueDepth feature.
The iPhone 14 also includes satellite connectivity, which makes it easier to reach emergency services if you are out of cell-service range. Using the “Emergency SOS” feature, you can send texts to emergency personnel even if you’re in a remote area. This service is free for two years and is available in the U.S. and Canada. It also lets you share your location with friends and family, making it easier to get assistance in an emergency.
The iPhone 14 will be available in more than 30 countries by November of this year. The new phone will be available in Malaysia, Turkey, and 20 other countries on October 7. Emergency SOS via satellite will be available in November, and the service will be free for two years when purchased with an iPhone 14.
