“As a matter of fact, these are industry-leading products that work together to provide an amazing experience for users,” Cook said.
The star product at the launch is undoubtedly the iPhone 14 seriescell phone, but the gap in specs before the standard and Pro models is wider than any previous generation of iPhones.
If the user wants the “on-screen display” and “smart island” functions, they need to spend several hundred dollars more. Many netizens said that the standard version of the iPhone 14 is “unappealing”.
An analyst in an interview praised the overall performance of the iPhone 14 series of smartphones, but said she was surprisedappleThe new camera released does not have much improvement in the camera zoom function.
Today, Apple’s development is smooth, and it has once again become the world’s largest company by market value with an overall size of $2.65 trillion. The latest figures show that Apple’s iPhone now holds more than half of the U.S. market, leaving rivals far behind.
Cook introduced new features for the new iPhone and the new Apple Watch at the event, many of which are related to safety, health and fitness.
The new iPhones and new Apple Watches can detect if a user has been involved in a car accident and automatically call emergency services if there is no response. A deal with satellite company Globalstar will allow iPhone users to send out SOS messages when there is no cell signal. The new sensor could also help female users better monitor their physical health, including ovulation cycles.
But comparing the iPhone 14 standard version and the professional version, you will find that the gap is not generally large.
Mediocre iPhone 14 Standard Edition
If you’re keen on the new iPhone and all the cool new features, you might want to steer clear of the standard model. Apple’s message to consumers seems to be, “buy the Pro or don’t.”
The well-known tech media said as early as a day before the launch, “This year may be the stage for the Pro version.” “This upgrade may be more expensive, but the payoff is a real improvement in performance, design and camera. In contrast, the iPhone 14 There isn’t much improvement on the standard version.”
Tom’s Guide, a well-known hardware evaluation website, also gave a similar statement: “Apple didn’t put much effort into the design of the iPhone 14 Standard Edition, which in fact looks similar to the iPhone 13.
There will always be some gaps between the standard version and the professional version of the new smartphone, such as memory size and battery capacity, but not as big as the gap between the iPhone 14 models.
Users want a 48-megapixel camera instead of a 12-megapixel? Then buy the iPhone 14 Pro and want the A16 chip instead of the A15 chip? Buy the iPhone 14 Pro. Don’t want to press the wake button on the phone to read key information directly? Only the iPhone 14 Pro has the always-on display feature.
The “Smart Island” function that everyone is talking about is still only available in the iPhone 14 Pro version. If you buy the standard version, there will still be bangs on the screen of the phone.
The standard iPhone 14, which starts at $999 in the U.S., offers longer battery life and a better camera than the iPhone 13. But if you want the “Smart Island” feature, a higher-resolution camera, and a faster chip, you’ll need to spend more than $1,099.
According to Carolina Milanesi, a technology analyst at Silicon Valley Creative Strategies consultancy, Apple is clearly “doing something right” given the growing market share of the company’s products.
“From an iPhone standpoint, they have the strongest product portfolio ever.”
Improved features like the display, low-light photography, and improved battery life are good news for consumers, she said.
Milanesi said: “From a user point of view, I personally think that Apple should focus more on the camera zoom function.”
“There are some improvements in zoom capabilities, but Apple competitors have really strong zoom and superzoom capabilities.”
