washington- New high-end phones Manzanathe iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, say goodbye to the controversial notch at the top of the screenwhich significantly increases the feeling of available space, and integrate the very powerful A16 Bionic chip for full performance.
The mobiles, which were presented last week and will arrive in stores this Friday, have instead of notch the new dynamic island -named after Apple- that functions de facto as a “mini-menu” very intuitive in which to control functions such as music playback or the stopwatch.
The dynamic island incorporates animations that make it integrate very fluidly with the rest of the interface, changing size and dividing into two when you have a couple of applications open, as well as serving as a notification center to alert the user , for example, when your favorite football team scores a goal.
One of the most interesting aspects of the dynamic island, apart from what it contributes, is that it “frees up” screen space that was previously occupied by the notchwhich greatly increases the feeling of available area, especially when playing video or games.
Another innovative aspect of Apple’s higher-end – and more expensive – phones is the always-on screen, which instead of turning off and going completely black when the device is idle, lowers the brightness a lot, but still shows useful information such as the time and the “widgets” that the user has selected.
These “widgets” can provide information on variables such as the weather situation, the time of sunrise and sunset, or custom elements such as the calendar or alarms.
An interesting aspect of this new always-on screen feature is that it turns off when the phone is upside down or in a pocket or bag, in order to save battery life and allow autonomy for a whole day, as Efe was able to verify.
Another improvement of the iPhone 14 Pro models compared to the previous version is the integration of the new A16 Bionic chip, which gives them the most power on the market and makes them an ideal tool for high-performance activities such as video playback. and games in high quality.
The camera has also been improved, which now incorporates a 48-megapixel sensor and uses the power of the A16 Bionic to take photos of a quality that has nothing to envy professional photo cameras, and that offers excellent results in conditions low light.
The new Apple phones, designed like the basic iPhone 14 for the brand new iOS 16 operating system, incorporate automatic alerts in the event of a traffic accident and the possibility of sending emergency messages via satellite when there is no coverage, an option which, according to Efe, is very intuitive when it has to be used.
The iPhone 14 Pro starts at $999, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at $1,099 and both will be available in stores starting this Friday.
