They’re the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Apple says its new handsets are its most powerful yet, boasting upgraded cameras and beefier batteries.

They’re the first iPhones in years to drop the notch at the top of the display, instead featuring a pill-shaped cutout.

Called the “Dynamic Island”, it houses the selfie camera and various sensors and offers new ways to interact with your device.

Pre-orders of the iPhone 14 kick off at 1 p.m. UK time (8 a.m. EST) on Apple’s website and at various retailers around the globe.

That’s also the date you’ll be able to pick the gadget up in stores around the globe.

iPhone 14 specs and features

The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro have 6.1-inch screens, while the Plus and Pro Max feature a 6.7-inch display.

You also get an OLED Super Retina XDR display, protected by Apple’s Ceramic Shield.

There are five colours available: Midnight, Starlight, Blue, Purple, and Red.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus are powered by last year’s A15 chip, with an improved GPU to help boost gaming.

The Pro range is powered by A16.

Apple has also stepped up its camera game and says the iPhone 14 provides better results in challenging lighting environments, offering 49 per cent better low-light image capture.

There’s a larger sensor and faster focus, with an f/1.5 aperture.

According to Apple, night-mode photographs can now be snapped much faster.

And the selfie camera is also improved with a faster aperture, offering a 39 per cent boost to low-light selfies.

It’s also improved video with a new “Action mode” for more stable videos.

All models are 5G and US models come with an E-Sim option.

There are also new safety features, like car crash detection that can automatically notify the emergency services if you’re in danger.

Apple has also added a new emergency feature to get help even when you’re off the grid in a remote location.

The new Emergency SOS lets you connect to a satellite, sharing your location with emergency services.

You’ll be alerted when satellite reception is available, and also when emergency responders have received the ping.

Apple also stressed it makes its products to last and has worked on making this iPhone recyclable and environmentally friendly.
