iPhone 14 Release Date, Price, Specs, and Latest News

iphone-14

The new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus were unveiled by Apple. For those who prefer a bigger canvas, the iPhone 14 Plus boasts a massive 6.7-inch display, while the iPhone 14 has a smaller 6.1-inch screen.

Here is a summary of every new feature on the iPhone 14, including significant camera enhancements, enhanced eSIM compatibility, and new Emergency SOS through satellite capability.

Here is a brief description of the new iPhone 14 and its features, along with our first hands-on footage of the device. When you’re done reading, be sure to read our hands-on reviews of the iPhone 14 Plus and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

iPhone 14 design

With the design of the iPhone 14, Apple didn’t invent anything new. In actuality, it resembles the iPhone 13 in almost every way. It’s not a negative thing that the rear camera module is still laid out diagonally because it looks nice. It has the same narrow notch that was first introduced in 2017.

There is one upgrade under the hood. The thermal performance of the iPhone 14 has allegedly been upgraded by Apple, allowing for extended use (such as with gaming). The physical SIM tray has also been eliminated by Apple, making the iPhone 14 an eSIM-only device.

The iPhone 14 also has Emergency SOS with Satellite as a new feature. This is the rumoured satellite connectivity that would essentially allow you to call for aid in an emergency even if you don’t have regular mobile service. For those living in remote or wilderness settings, this is perfect. You receive two years of Emergency SOS with Satellite for free with the iPhone 14.

The Series 8 Apple Watch introduced Crash Detection, which is also present on the iPhone 14. This can recognize when a car accident has occurred, and if you are unable to respond, it will automatically alert emergency personnel.

Like in previous years, the iPhone 14 has two screen sizes, but the latest one is the bigger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus. Despite the iPhone 14’s larger 6.1-inch display, both devices use Apple’s Super Retina XDR OLED screens, with a peak HDR brightness of 1200 nits.

Both have Ceramic Shield on the front glass, for increased durability.

iPhone 14 cameras

The iPhone 14’s camera was significantly improved. The iPhone 14 has a 49% boost in low-light performance because of its larger primary sensor, bigger pixels (1.9 microns), quicker f/1.5 aperture, and sensor-shift image stabilization. Even night mode gets a boost since it now has a faster exposure time.

Apple didn’t provide many details on the ultrawide’s specifications, which led us to believe it would be identical to the iPhone 13. (Also, the iPhone 14 Pro received a significant ultrawide improvement.) However, TrueDepth and autofocus updated the front camera (f/1.9) with a hybrid focusing system.

Specifications and batteries for the iPhone 14

Specifications and batteries for the iPhone 14

According to speculations, the new A16 Bionic chipset, which is a pro exclusive for this year only, was not included with the iPhone 14. In its place, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus receive the more advanced A15 Bionic chip that we previously saw in the iPhone 13 Pro. That means the iPhone 14 now includes a 5-core GPU for improved gaming performance, in addition to the same 6-core CPU and 16-core Neural Engine.

Regarding battery life, Apple claims that the iPhone 14 will last “all day,” which is at best ambiguous. Fortunately, the iPhone 13 had reasonable battery life, so we’re not too worried.

iPhone 14 and iOS 16

About iOS 16, we already know everything there is to know, but the iPhone 14 will make use of all of its most recent improvements, such as the updated lock screen, modifications to Mail and Messages, and more. In the next weeks, iOS 16 will be included with the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

You can also benefit from the upgraded Live Text and Visual Lookup as well as the new iCloud Shared Photo Libraries.

For the iPhone 14, it appears that many of the rumours from the previous year were accurate. In actuality, the differences between it and the iPhone 13 are minimal. The iPhone 14 Plus replacing the iPhone mini is the most significant update.

It appears that the iPhone 14 is not a significant improvement over the iPhone 13, but it is still a nice device for those who are using an iPhone 12 or earlier. The iPhone 14 appears to be a modest offering for 2022 with the A15 Bionic CPU, stronger cameras, and increased battery life of the iPhone 13 Pro.

In India, the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 cruiser bike has a starting price of Rs. 149,900. 3 variations and 8 colours are available, with the top variant starting at Rs. 1,68,900. The 349cc BS6 engine that powers the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 produces 20.2 horsepower and 27 Nm of torque.

The Royal Enfield Hunter 350 has an anti-locking braking system together with the front disc and rear drum brakes. The fuel tank on this Hunter 350 bike can hold 13 gallons of gasoline and weighs 177 kg.

The 350cc sector will soon join the Royal Enfield Hunter in the lineup of the Chennai-based two-wheeler maker. The J-Platform from Royal Enfield will be shared by the new Hunter 350, the Meteor 350, and the Classic 350. It will then have the same engine, frame, and cycle components.

The 349cc, air/oil-cooled engine is mated to a five-speed transmission and is calibrated to generate a maximum torque of 20.2bhp and 27Nm.

The design

A neo-retro roadster design resembling the Triumph Street Twin will be among the design. As a result, the new Hunter 350 will have a single-piece seat, a fuel tank in the form of a teardrop, a round headlamp, a taillamp, turn signals, and mirrors. The motorcycle should have a modest seat height and a curb weight of between 190 and 195 kg.

The hardware will also continue to be comparable to that of the Classic 350 and Meteor 350. As a result, the Hunter 350 will include twin rear shocks, telescopic front forks, and disc brakes on both ends. A single-channel ABS should be a part of the safety net.

The redesigned Bullet 350, which will be introduced later this year, will be more expensive than the Hunter, which will be Royal Enfield’s most cheap model.

Therefore, we anticipate the cost of Hunter to be between Rs. 1.30 and Rs. 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Suzuki Gixxer, Yamaha FZ25, and Pulsar 250 will all be competitors of the Hunter 350 in this market.

Although Royal Enfield has not yet specified a release date, we can anticipate that it will happen in the second part of July 2022. A few days before the launch, reservations should start, and delivery may begin any time from August 2022.

Beware! The ‘Squid Game’ Malware: What you need to do?

squid game news

On the Google Play Store, a new software based on Netflix’s famous series Squid Game was discovered that downloaded malware onto the Android cellphones it was placed on. Unfortunately, it was not the only app of its kind, and here are some precautions that smartphone users should take to avoid downloading harmful apps.

Squid Game, a South Korean Netflix web series was released worldwide on September 17, 2021, with International renown and critical praise. It is Netflix’s most-watched series to date, attracting over 142-million-member households in its first four weeks of release.

Further, a new application named ‘Squid Wallpaper 4K HD’ was found on the google play store which was later discovered that to infect Android phones with the notorious Joker malware by cybersecurity researcher Lukas Stefanko. Keep in mind that outside of Netflix, “Squid Game” has never announced a mobile app. As a result, fans should be skeptical of any “Squid Game” apps created by third-party users.

On the Google Play Store alone, there are over 200 games with the Squid Game name, none of which are official. The most innocuous are simply poorly developed games that attempt to duplicate the show in order to generate ad money from inexperienced gamers. Some of the more pernicious programmers, on the other hand, are suspected of containing malware.

“Malicious ad-fraud and/or unsolicited SMS subscription actions” were carried out by the Joker malware in the ‘Squid Wallpaper 4K HD’ software “. It resulted in unwanted advertisements being sent to users’ phones via text messages. These consumers were also enrolled in some premium services. In summary, the users had to pay a lot of money.

 “Seems like a terrific opportunity to generate money on in-app adverts from one of the most popular TV shows without having to create an official game,” Stefanko stated.

Stefanko also said in a tweet that there are at least 200 Squid Game-based apps accessible on Google Play. Within ten days, the most popular of these apps had surpassed one million downloads.

Given the potential for fraudsters to utilize the fad to dupe people into downloading malware, consumers should exercise extreme caution while installing any programmers on their devices. For Android users, the best course of action is to delete such apps from their devices to reduce their chances of contracting the Joker malware. Furthermore, installing anti-malware on your device can help protect it from viruses.
