Apple always finds a way to innovate 📲⌚️🤩
One of the most exciting times of the year is finally here. Apple had an event a few days ago announcing all sorts of awesome new products. The main attraction was the new iPhone 14, but there are a lot of other things to talk about.
In today's video, I want to provide you with a full recap of everything that was announced at this event. If you thought you knew all of what Apple would reveal, I'm going to guess that you'll be surprised by a lot of this stuff.
What was announced❓
1️⃣ Apple Watch Series 8
Car Crash Detection. A temperature sensor for deeper insights into women’s health and their cycles. An enhanced Workout app with advanced metrics. Sleep stages tracking to see how much time you spend in REM, core and deep sleep. Source
2️⃣ The all-new Apple Watch Ultra
This is Apple Watch Ultra. Our most rugged and capable Apple Watch ever. Featuring a 49mm corrosion-resistant titanium case, multi-day battery life, three new specialized bands, a customizable Action button, precision dual-frequency GPS, innovative safety features like an 86-decibel siren and water resistant 100m. Apple Watch Ultra—a watch that pushes boundaries, so you can do the same. Source
3️⃣ AirPods Pro
The all-new AirPods Pro have been completely reengineered for breakthrough sound. A next-generation H2 Apple-designed audio chip enables superior audio performance. Now there’s up to 2x more Active Noise Cancellation, and Adaptive Transparency that lets outside sounds in while reducing loud environmental noise. And for a more immersive listening experience, Personalized Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking places sound all around you. A single charge delivers up to 6 hours of battery life. And Touch control lets you easily adjust volume with a swipe and manage playback functions from the stem. Source
4️⃣ iPhone 14
Introducing iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. Two great sizes, Big (6.1”) and Bigger (6.7”). A new front camera with autofocus. A more advanced dual-camera system for even better photos. Action mode for extra smooth videos. All-day battery life on iPhone 14. And our longest battery life ever on iPhone 14 Plus. The lightning-fast A15 Bionic chip. And two groundbreaking new safety features we hope you’ll never have to use, Crash Detection and Emergency SOS via satellite. All in five stunning colors. Now that’s big. Source
5️⃣ iPhone 14 Pro
What lies beyond a traditional smartphone? Let’s find out. This is iPhone 14 Pro. It starts with the Dynamic Island, an interactive place that bubbles up alerts, notifications, and activities. The Always-On display keeps go-to information just a glance away and has refresh rates ranging from 1-120Hz. The most impressive iPhone camera system yet has an all-new 48MP Main camera with a quad-pixel sensor along with telephoto and wide-angle lenses. And photographers who want even more control now have a new 48MP ProRAW option. New Action mode offers gimbal-like stabilized video. Cinematic mode is now in 4K HDR at 24fps. Finally, there’s the A16 Bionic chip, all-day battery life, and vital new safety features we hope you’ll never need: Emergency SOS via satellite and Crash Detection. Source
6️⃣ Dynamic Island
Welcome to a shape-shifting, multitasking, head-turning, game-changing iPhone experience. Dynamic Island blends fun and function like never before, consolidating your notifications, alerts, and activities into one interactive place. It’s integrated throughout iOS 16 — and can work with all kinds of apps — to seamlessly surface what you need, right when you need it. Source
7️⃣ A few smaller things too
The star of the show for me was the iPhone 14 Pro and Dynamic Island. This surprising feature is quite possibly one of the coolest things to be added to an iPhone in quite some time. We finally know why Apple insisted on switching to the pill shape to house the front-facing cameras, rather than their traditional notch.
What I'm buying 🤑
After careful consideration, I have determined which model I will be upgrading to. Currently, I have an iPhone XS from 2018. I have been patiently waiting for the 14 to come out as I'm beyond ready for a new device.
I am getting an iPhone 14 Pro Max with 512 GB of storage. Out of the four color options, I am most drawn to the unique purple color. That's my build and it will cost me $1,399 + tax. A hefty price, but one I think is warranted since my iPhone allows me to create content, among many other things.
How I am paying 💸
Most people get on a payment plan or trade in their old iPhone, but I always prefer to just purchase the phone outright and be done with it.
Since I am living off of crypto these days, that means I need a way to turn my HIVE into BTC. I use https://stealthex.io for that.
Then I purchase Apple Store gift cards with my BTC using https://www.bitrefill.com.
I did this same thing back when I purchased my new M1 iMac. The whole process is about as seamless as it gets right now. I wish Apple would just accept cryptocurrency payments, but at least buying gift cards with crypto is still relatively easy.
This is what excites me the most 🥳
I have so many reasons to be hyped about upgrading my iPhone to the latest model. A few reasons stand out to me more than others. I'd like to take the time to list my most anticipated features now.
1️⃣ 48MP camera with additional Telephoto and Ultra Wide lenses
2️⃣ Action Mode for better image stabilization during video
3️⃣ A larger (6.7") and brighter (up to 2000nits) screen
4️⃣ The 120Hz refresh rate and always on display
5️⃣ Dynamic Island
6️⃣ Better battery life
7️⃣ MagSafe accessories
8️⃣ A16 Bionic chip
9️⃣ iOS 16 (releasing on September 12)
These are just some of the reasons that I am ecstatic to hand over more of my money to Apple. Preorders for the iPhone 14 start on September 9 and the launch will be on September 16. This means that by next weekend I will have my new iPhone 14 Pro Max in hand. My content is about to take another giant leap forward and I look forward to sharing my creations here with you.
