Talking about the upgrades that the new iPhone series 14 comes in the form of major camera enhancements for low light photography, a faster GPU, satellite calling connectivity, and crash detection. Apple is claiming to be the best battery life on the iPhone 14 Plus.
Here’s a quick overview of all of the new iPhone 14 features, which include more robust eSIM support and new Emergency SOS via satellite functionality.
Apple finally unveils globally the iPhone 14 series. It consists of four models— the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. While the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are the smaller models, the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max are the ones aimed at those who prefer larger screens.
The first notable design change with the iPhone 14 Pro models is the display. The notch is being replaced by a pill-shaped cutout that will house the Face ID components and a second circular cutout for the front-facing camera.
For the first time, the iPhone models in the US will not have a SIM tray. The latest smartphones come with E-sim activation without Wi-Fi in the US.

The smartphone also comes with satellite emergency communication technology that can be used to send SOS messages over satellite. The feature will be starting in US and Canada and it will be free with iPhone 14 for two years. All the phones also come with a crash-detection feature. It will automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone.
