It’s back to school for Apple! The Apple company, through the voice of Tim Cook, is currently unveiling its new collection during its big back-to-school conference, the Keynote, which is currently held on the stage of the Steve Jobs Theater, at the Cupertino HQ, in California.
The iphone 14 has been unveiled this Wednesday evening with a larger version, called iPhone 14 Plus but also Pro versions. Five colors were presented. Apple does not announce any price increase compared to the iPhone 13, that is to say a launch price of 799 dollars and 899 dollars for the iPhone 14 Plus.
Before that, the new Apple Watch Series 8 was confirmed, followed by a new Watch SE 2 and a so-called Ultra version for the most extreme athletes.
New AirPods Pro 2 were also presented during this Apple Keynote 2022.
Let’s move on to the pricing of the new iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max. These will be available from several prices depending on the storage capacity you need:
iPhone 14 Pro: starting at $999
iPhone 14 Pro Max: from 1099 dollars.
Both devices will be available from September 16 and open for pre-orders from September 9.
A new sensor will be available for the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max! The latter will have 48 MP, never seen on an iPhone. But megapixels are not everything and we will have to wait and see if the digital processing of the iPhone remains as powerful as before for high quality photos.
The iPhone 13 was already very powerful. But the iPhone 14 Pro goes even further by integrating the new A16 Bionic chip for more performance. Apple even promises 40% higher performance than the competition (are they talking about the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor available in Android?).
You had trouble seeing your notifications on the iPhone? Apple promises a bright screen of up to 2000 nits for its new iPhone 14 Pro (and Pro Max). An impressive figure, but we’ll have to test it when the phone comes out to see if we have the brightest screen on the market.
More room for your wallpaper. This is already the promise initiated with iOS 16 and confirmed with the iPhone 14 Pro and its new, more discreet notch. Notifications become more discreet, but expand when they appear on your screen.
Looking for something new on the iPhone 14? No problem, here are the new iPhones 14 Pro and Pro Max with the new notch that extends when you make phone calls. Available in black, white, gold and purple.
Available from September 16, the iPhone 14 will be offered from 799 dollars, the same price as the iPhone 13 at its launch! No price increase is finally planned despite the numerous rumors of the last weeks. The iPhone 14 Plus will be available at the beginning of October for 899 dollars.
The new feature of emergency calls by satellite will not be free! This last one will be first reserved to Canada and the US with a period of two years offered for the purchase of an iPhone 14.
Are you in an area without a 4G or 5G network? Don’t panic. The iPhone 14 has a brand new service: Emergency SOS via Satellite. This allows the iPhone 14 to connect to a satellite to make emergency calls in case you have no phone network.
Do you have an eSIM card? The iPhone 14 might be for you. The device now supports eSIM on multiple devices while strengthening the security of your data. You will no longer need to have your physical SIM card in your iPhone!
Apple details the new features of the iPhone 14, including an improved 12MP photo sensor. What to take better photos, especially in low light where performance would be improved by 49% compared to the previous generation. The selfie camera is also improved and captures more light in low light.
Black, white, red, purple and turquoise. These are the new colors of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus available at the launch of the phone. These will be available on the official Apple store and authorized dealers.
The Apple Keynote unveils the new iPhone 14. The latter still has the same design as its predecessor but with some new features, including the iPhone 14 Plus which has a larger size.
A new, even smaller earmold, a new chip, more powerful spatial audio, an improved battery, twice the noise reduction of the previous model… These are just some of the new features of the new AirPods Pro 2. The headphones will also be able to automatically adjust their transparency mode to keep you connected to the world when using noise reduction.
The AirPods Pro 2 will be available starting at $249 on September 23. You can reserve your copy online starting Friday, September 9.
Apple finally announces the AirPods Pro 2! After months of waiting, the most successful wireless earphones of the firm are finally official. They are equipped with a brand new chip and a new audio distortion for a great sound quality. Spatial audio is still available and enhanced as if you were on a stage with your favorite band playing alongside you.
The Apple Watch Ultra is not for the average user. That’s why it has new features, including the most advanced GPS in the range. The Apple Watch Ultra will be available from $799 on September 23. This is a record for a watch aimed at the general public, but the first rumors indicated a price close to 1000 dollars.
Do you like diving? The Apple Watch Ultra will have a new app that will allow you to use it several meters underwater to track your progress, depth and other data that you can then find on your iPhone. Your data will automatically sync at the end of your dive.
Apple would work on a new Mac with touch screen.

Apple is considering giving its Mac computers a touchscreen, Bloomberg news agency reported Wednesday.
This would be a major turning point for the company, as co-founder Steve Jobs once said that the technology was “ergonomically terrible”.
Bloomberg has learned from a good source that engineers at the American company are actively working on the project, a sign that touchscreen Macs are being seriously considered. However, this has not yet been confirmed. Apple has refrained from commenting.
Apple has been saying for more than a decade that a touchscreen is not suitable for laptops and that an iPad is a better option for those who want to have this technology. An opinion that Apple’s competitors don’t necessarily share, as many of them have launched touchscreen computers.
Nearly 100 Starlink internet terminals active in Iran, according to Elon Musk

Nearly a hundred Internet terminals of the Starlink network are active in Iran, said Monday the boss of SpaceX Elon Musk.
The American billionaire had promised in September to deploy the Starlink satellite network in Iran at a time when Iranian authorities are increasingly restricting access to the Internet.
Soon 100 active Starlinks in Iran,” Musk tweeted Monday.
Starlink has a network of more than 2,000 small satellites in low orbit above the earth, which can provide internet access. Ground terminals are then connected to routers that generate wifi and thus internet access.
Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, SpaceX has delivered thousands of terminals to provide internet access. Some 25,000 terminals have been deployed in the country to date.
Protests have been shaking Iran since the September 16 death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurdish woman, after she was arrested in Tehran by police. Since then, hundreds have been killed, thousands arrested and two 23-year-old men hanged.
Iranian authorities have since restricted access to Instagram and WhatsApp — until this fall the only social networks still available — and to VPNs, which Iranians use to access banned sites.
Elon Musk announces he will step down as head of Twitter

Steph Deschamps / December 22, 2022
Musk announced Tuesday on Twitter his intention to leave the head of the social network once he has “found someone crazy enough” to replace him, explaining that he will then focus on the “software and server teams.
The owner of the microblogging platform was reacting to the result of the poll that he himself had initiated on Monday on Twitter, asking whether he should step down as head of the company or not, with 57% of the 17 million voters having answered in the affirmative.
If he had initially stated that he would comply with the result of his poll, Mr. Musk had sent in recent hours rather contradictory signals, seeming at first to believe that the result had been distorted by the vote of bots.
Less than eight weeks after its takeover of the social network for $44 billion, Twitter does not see the storm subsiding. The company is on the verge of a financial collapse having lost a number of advertisers in the face of the risk that the billionaire’s desire to reduce content moderation represents for brands.
Earlier in the day, Elon Musk had retweeted the result of an opinion survey conducted by the HarrisX institute, among its own sample of users of the platform, and which gave 61% of respondents in favor of his retention as CEO.
“Interestingly, this seems to suggest that we have a slight problem of bots on Twitter,” said the owner of the platform in response to the tweet of the institute presenting the results.
A comment that came after Elon Musk approved another tweet suggesting that his survey had been victimized by bots. He also said that any new poll would now be reserved for paying Twitter users.
In the past, the businessman had already relied on polls to support debatable decisions, such as the reactivation of the account of former U.S. President Donald Trump, as well as other users who were suspended.
The result of its latest poll initially led to a rise in the share of Tesla, whose investors are increasingly critical of the attention given to Twitter since the acquisition, to the detriment of the car manufacturer, they believe.
Several U.S. media had assured that Elon Musk was looking for a replacement, citing anonymous sources, an information that the owner of Twitter had then rejected by a simple mocking emoticon on the social network.
