The Life-saving Apple
Apple has struck a chord with almost everyone across the globe as it revealed two unique SOS features for the all-new iPhone 14 series – Emergency SOS via satellite and Crash Detection. While the former helps you to send emergency messages when you are stuck in a remote location with no Wi-Fi or Cell service, the latter automatically sends critical information to emergency numbers when you experience a car crash. Apple says that it wishes that the users may never require to use these two SOS tools, which are already being hailed as remarkable in the history of tech innovations by all and sundry from the tech verse.
iPhone 14 & iPhone 14 Plus
The fact that contrary to popular belief, iPhone 14 didn’t experience a single-dollar hike at the Apple Event 2022, gave a huge sigh of relief to Apple maniacs around the world. Priced at $799 and $899 respectively, both iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus feature a new dual-camera system, Crash Detection, Emergency SOS via satellite and the much-needed enhanced battery life. Their sizes differ a bit as the former is 6.1-inched, while the latter offers you a 6.7-inch display. Both models boast of the A15 Bionic chip with a 5-core GPU and an enhanced image pipeline called Photonic Engine.
iPhone 14 Pro & iPhone 14 Pro Max

Both of them run on an A16 chip, claimed to be the fastest chip ever in a smartphone and has a 48MP main camera aided with a quad-pixel sensor. To lay your hands on the most-advanced Pro lineup ever, you have spent $999 for the Pro and $1099 for the Pro Max version.

Its salient features are enough to raise eyebrows and ensure an overpowering performance – a robust titanium case, precision dual-frequency GPS, up to 36 hours of battery life, the freedom of cellular and three specially-designed bands meant for athletes and adventurers of all kinds. The pocket-pinch is way higher in comparison with the other Apple watches, as it costs you $799.
Apple Watch Series 8
Equipped with watchOS 9, the new Apple Watch Series 8 introduces a long list of new smart-tech tools like Lunar and Metropolitan watch faces, an enhanced Workout app, sleep stages, a first-of-its-kind AFib History feature, ECG app and an all-new Medications app. It costs a bit higher than the Apple Watch SE, with a $399-price tag.
