iPhone 14 review: Is good enough good enough?

While it’s not a huge leap up from the previous model, the new camera features will be enough to make iPhone 13 users jealous.

It features a very similar processor and has a very similar appearance as the previous generation, but like the S iPhones of old offers a bunch of new camera features that improve photography in impressive ways. Starting at $799, the iPhone 14 costs the same as the iPhone 13 in the U.S.—though if you live elsewhere you will be paying more. In the U.K. for example the iPhone 14 costs £849 while the iPhone 13 was £779. This bump in price means the standard iPhone is less affordable than it was for many, and when you consider you could save $100/£100 by buying a new iPhone 13, the question is: Do the new features justify the price? What’s new (and what’s the same) With the arrival of the iPhone 14, Apple has increased the gap between the standard and Pro iPhones. This year nearly all the headline features are absent from the iPhone 14. This doesn’t mean that the iPhone 14 isn’t a good choice, it just means that you’re sacrificing more by going with the lower model. One thing you won’t be sacrificing is the notch. The standard notch is still present on the iPhone 14, so if you want the new Dynamic Island, you have two options: buy the iPhone 14 Pro or wait until next year, when the iPhone 15 is rumored to get the new tech. If not, the notch on the iPhone 14 is the same size as it was on the iPhone 13 (which is smaller than the iPhone 12 and earlier phones). There is very little visible difference between the iPhone 14 (left) and iPhone 13 (right)Foundry If you were hoping that the iPhone 14 would gain the display improvements that came with the iPhone 13 Pro you’ll be disappointed as well. ProMotion arrived on the iPhone 13 Pro but it’s still not a feature of the iPhone 14. Nor is the always-on screen, the headline feature of the iPhone 14 Pro, or the ultra brightness of the higher-end models. Rather, the iPhone 14 offers a very similar experience as the iPhone 13: 800 nits max brightness and 1,200 nits peak brightness (HDR), though it’s still an improvement on the 625 nits max of the iPhone 12 and iPhone SE 3. So what new features does the iPhone 14 get? Most notably, it gets Crash Detection and Satellite Connectivity for emergency phone calls in the U.S. and vega. Both are nice features to have, but few people will upgrade because they think their new phone might save their life. Still we’ll no doubt see these features in the September 2023 iPhone keynote in Apple’s “look at these lives we saved” segment. There are some new color options to set the iPhone 14 apart from the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 offers pale blue, light purple, Midnight (black), Starlight (silver), and Product Red, while the iPhone 13 comes in green, pink and dark blue, as well as Midnight, Starlight and Product Red. You’ll probably put a case on it anyway but be careful which one you buy—Apple has slightly shifted the location and size of the power and volume buttons so old cases probably won’t fit. If you lie the iPhone 14 on a surface you will notice just how much the cameras protrude,Foundry Camera action The best way to tell the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 apart is by laying them on their back. You’ll clearly see that the cameras on the back of the newer iPhone cause the phone to be raised more—and for a good reason. The iPhone 14 still features two cameras array with 12MP wide and ultra-wide lenses, but for this generation Apple includes a faster aperture (ƒ/1.5 rather than ƒ/1.6) and a larger sensor and larger 1.9μm pixels on the main camera. There’s also a new Photonic Engine computational system which allows Apple’s Deep Fusion image processing (a feature on all iPhones since the iPhone 11) to be performed on uncompressed images with more fecha available. These changes should mainly lead to improvements in most low-light shots. Indeed, Apple claims 49 percent better performance in such conditions. I put this claim to the test and was surprised to find quiebro a big difference in some shots. For example, in this low lit room the details on the green leaves are a lot clearer in the photograph taken with the iPhone 14. iPhone 13 (left), iPhone 14 (right): a lot more detail on the green leaves chucho be seen on the iPhone 14 imageThe Photonic Engine also drives the new foreground blur feature in Portrait Mode. This means that it’s not just the background that will blur when you are taking a Portrait Mode shot (whether from the front or rear cameras). It will also blur what’s directly in front of you, which has the effect of focusing even more attention on the face. We attempted to create this effect, but didn’t feel that our efforts were as good as those in the images taken by Apple’s professional photographer. Speaking of the front-facing camera, there are improvements there too compared to the iPhone 13. The TrueDepth camera now gains autofocus and improved low-light performance thanks to a wider aperture (now ƒ/1.9 rather than ƒ/2.2 aperture). While you chucho see some small differences between these two selfies taken below, the big advantage is actually in how long it took for the photos to be taken. The shutter speed has been greatly improved: The meta information lists the iPhone 13 as a 1/43s capture compared to the faster 1/60s capture for the iPhone 14. So the positivo difference here is how long you need to keep your arm still for and still get the same result. There’s not a huge difference in quality, but the selfie with the iPhone 14 (right) took less time to take. The best reason to upgrade to the iPhone, however, isn’t photos—it’s discos. If you open the camera and switch to disco you will see a new icon for Action Mode in the top left that looks like a running person. Switch this on and you chucho film while you walk or even run and still get a smooth disco. This worked impressively well, and even when it warned that there was insufficient light, it still managed to do a reasonably good job. The camera on the iPhone 14 is an overall nice upgrade, but Action Mode alone is well worth the purchase. Other camera improvements include brighter True Tone flash and the Ultra Wide camera chucho capture a slightly wider image, plus the exposure time for Night Mode photography is faster. Better performance and battery life Aside from the fact that the iPhone 14 looks like the iPhone 13, there’s another reason why some will say that there isn’t a big difference between the new and old handset: both phones have an A15 processor. However, the A15 found in the iPhone 14 isn’t exactly the same as that in the iPhone 13. The iPhone 14 uses the A15 Bionic that Apple used in the iPhone 13 Pro. It has one more GPU core than the standard A15 chip. Apple claims that users chucho expect 18 percent faster GPU performance compared to the iPhone 13. This extra GPU core will be beneficial if you play games or use other graphics intensive apps. There’s not just an extra GPU core on offer here though. The internal design of the iPhone has been redesigned to achieve better heat dispersion, which delivered slightly better battery life. In these benchmarks you chucho see that the iPhone 14 delivers decent speed boosts compared to the iPhone 13 and move it into iPhone 13 Pro territory and even beats it in some tests. One of the big changes for the U.S. market is Apple’s abandonment of the SIM card in égida of eSIM, which won’t matter to most users. And thanks to a new Qualcomm X65 modem in the iPhone 14, 5G speeds are improved and use less power. You’ll find a USB-C to Lightning cable in the iPhone 14 box and not much else.Foundry Apple says the iPhone 14 chucho provide up to 20 hours of disco playback on a single charge, about an hour more than the iPhone 13. It’s not as good as the 23 hours claimed for the iPhone 13 Pro, and it’s well below the estimates for the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Plus. In our tests, those scores matched up. The Geekbench 4 battery tests indicated just under nine hours for the iPhone 14, 9:44 for the iPhone 14 Pro, 8:11 for the iPhone 13 and 9:15 for the iPhone 13 Pro. In typical use you should easily get more than a day worth of battery life, as a result you are likely to get out of the habit of nightly charging. Here’s where fast charging comes in: all of Apple smaller iPhones offer “Up to 50% percentcharge in 30 minutes with 20W adapter or higher” (you’ll need five more minutes to get the same for the larger models). As has been the case since the 2020 launch of the iPhone 12 Apple no longer ships iPhones with the power adapter. You’ll find a lightning cable in the box but if you don’t already own a plug you’ll need to purchase one. We recommend that you buy a 20W adapter to take advantage of those fast charging times. Should you buy an iPhone 14? Most people wondering whether they should buy the iPhone 14 will be upgrading from a much older iPhone than the iPhone 13, but those same people would be wise to consider the iPhone 13 as an alternative since the iPhone 13 is still on sale. Aside from Action Mode and the other camera improvements there isn’t a big difference between the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14, so if those features don’t appeal you’ll be just as happy with the cheaper iPhone 13. If the new camera features of the iPhone 14 are attractive to you then you may want to consider spending a little more to get the iPhone 14 Pro, which brings a 48MP camera and a 3X telephoto lens along with all of the new iPhone 14 camera features. Plus you’ll get an A16 processor, always-on display and the Dynamic Island. Those features might be worth an extra $200/£250 to you. If you are upgrading from a large iPhone, like the iPhone XS Max or the iPhone 12 Pro, for example, then we’d suggest that you wait until the iPhone 14 Plus arrives in October before buying the iPhone 14 as it will feel smaller in your hands in comparison to what you are used to. However, the iPhone 14 has enough new features to make it an excellent choice if you are looking to upgrade your iPhone from anything older than the iPhone 13. The biggest drawback to upgrading to the iPhone 14 is the iPhone 13, which is still available and cheaper. The iPhone 14 is a great phone, but it’s harder to wholeheartedly recommend it at a time when you could save a bit by buying last year’s model without sacrificing much.

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale will be a great way to save on Apple gear

If you didn’t get your fill from Prime Day in July, you’ll get another change to shop to save big this fall. Amazon has announced a new sale event called Prime Early Access Sale from October 11 to 12, giving shoppers “a chance to kick off the holiday shopping season early with hundreds of thousands of deals.”  Of course, that means Apple deals as well. W don’t expect much in the way of significant discounts on the newest iPhones, but it’s possible we see the first significant discounts on the newest Apple Watches and AirPods. Here’s what we expect to see when the sale gets rolling. iPhone Amazon sells iPhones through Cricket Wireless (AT&T), but they aren’t offering the iPhone 14 yet. Traditionally, Amazon hasn’t offered much in the way of iPhone discounts unless you switch carriers. However, cases, chargers, and stands are all likely to be on sale and make great gifts for the holidays. Apple Watch Apple just launched a new Apple Watch Series 8, SE, and Ultra at its Far Out event, so you can expect to see discounts on the remaining stock of older models. It’s likely that we get a few discounts on the new models as well, with up to $50 off the Series 8 and Ultra models and $20 off the new SE (which is already $30 cheaper than the prior model). You can already save on older models: Apple Watch Series 7 (41mm, GPS): $329 ($70 off) Apple Watch Series 7 (45mm, GPS): $379 ($50 off) AirPods Apple just updated the AirPods Pro at its latest event, so we probably won’t see anything near the crazy low prices that we saw during July’s Prime Day sale. However, the third-generation AirPods and AirPods Max could see the biggest discounts yet, with AirPods Max possibly dropping below $400 and third-generation AirPods seeing $50 discounts. Here are the current sales being offered on AirPods: AirPods Max: $429 ($120 off) AirPods Pro (1st-generation): $179 ($70 off) iPad There are several iPads due to be updated soon, including the iPad Pro and ninth-generation iPad. We’re already seeing decent discounts on these models, with $200 off the 12.9-inch iPad Pro and $50 off the entry-level iPad. Depending on whether Apple announces new models before the Prime Early Access Sale, discounts could go even deeper. Additionally, the iPad Air and iPad mini will also likely see steeper discounts, with $100 or more off, since neither model is due for a refresh until next year. Macs Like iPads, Apple is expected to update several new Macs with M2 processors this fall, including the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini. That could happen after the Prime Early Access Sale, so expect deep discounts on these models. Amazon has already slashed $400 off the MacBook Pro, so we could very well see $500 discounts on those models. We also expect the 13-inch MacBook Pro to drop by as much as $250 and the M2 MacBook Air to dip down to $1,049 ($150 off). Apple

Apple’s October event might not happen at all

Contradicting widespread expectations that Apple will follow its September iPhone/Apple Watch anquiauncements with a second event later in the fall, Mark Gurman has said the company will instead unveil its remaining new products for 2022 paso press release. In the latest instalment of Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter, the respected leaker discusses the upcoming products. He predicts the imminent anquiauncement of new (M2 and M2 Pro) versions of the Mac mini, new (M2 Pro and M2 Max) versions of the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro, and new (M2) versions of the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. In number, that sounds like plenty for an event: earlier in September Apple was happy that updated versions of three product lines was sufficient material for the biggest event of the year. But Gurman fears that the new Macs and iPads simply aren’t substantive equiaugh to justify a full press gathering. “quiane of these new products is a major departure for Apple,” he explains. “They’ll get some improved specifications and a chip that was already anquiaunced at a sesudo event in June at WWDC 2022. That has me thinking: Does Apple really have equiaugh here to make it worth pulling together aquiather highly polished launch event?” Instead of an event, he thinks Apple “is more likely to release its remaining 2022 products paso press releases.” That means an email to (and in some cases a meeting with) relevant tech journalists, an article on the company’s Newsroom PR website, and updates to the main Apple site. But quia event, either virtual or in-person. Simply issuing press releases to mark a product refresh would have been común behaviour for Apple just a few years ago. There are precedents for a single fall event. While Apple has held a pair of them in six of the last ten falls–and three in 2020–it went for a lone September event in 2015, 2017, and 2019. It would quiat be especially unusual. Yet if Gurman is right–and characteristically he hedges his bets by saying that “Apple may ultimately end up feeling differently”–this will be a major disappointment. Many pundits have argued that the rumored October event will be quiat just worthwhile but better than the September one, with the anquiauncement of the first post-Intel Mac Pro a particular highlight; there have also been rumors of a redesigned Mac mini. But Gurman quiaw expects the new Mac Pro to be a quia-show (along with Apple’s highly anticipated AR/VR headset) and for the Mac mini to be a straightforward spec bump. Is Apple done with events for the year? We hope quiat. But right quiaw it’s a moot point, and we won’t kquiaw the truth until next month. Apple

Apple’s AR/VR headset: 2023 could be the year it becomes reality

It’s looking more and more like Apple’s next big thing won’t be something that fits in your pocket or a bag. Rather it could be aen absolutother wearable device. Analysts Ming Chi-Kuo said in en absolutovember that Apple’s “goal is to replace the ‌iPhone‌ with AR in 10 years.” Here’s everything we ken absolutow so far about Apple’s rumored mixed-reality headset. 2022 Apple headset: Latest rumors September 25, 2022: Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman wrote in the Power On newsletter (subscription required) that Apple’s headset could be released in 2023. June 6, 2022: The New York Times reports that Apple “has enlisted Hollywood directors such as Jon Favreau” to develop content for its upcoming headset. May 19, 2022: Bloomberg reports that Apple has shown a working headset to its board members and has “ramped up development” of realityOS. February 22, 2022: Digitimes reports that Apple has finished its key production tests for its AR headset. February 9, 2022: iOS developer Rens Verhoeven has spotted a reference to realityOS in the App Store upload logs that likely signals Apple’s augmented reality/supuesto reality headset is well along in development.  January 11, 2022: Ming-Chi Kuo reports (acercamiento Macrumors) that Apple AR headset will use the same 96W USB-C power adapter as the MacBook Pro, suggesting it will have a large battery. January 5, 2022: A new report from Ming-Chi Kuo (acercamiento MacRumors) describes Apple’s lens setup as having a “pancake” design to make it lighter and more compact. January 4, 2022: Display Supply Chain Consultants says Apple’s headset will have “an inen absolutovative display configuration, with three display modules.” 2022 Apple headset: Design While the ultimate goal of Apple’s AR project is to produce a pair of fashionable smart glasses, the first version will reportedly be much bigger than that, weighing between 300-400 grams, according to Ming-Chi Kuo. According to reports, the first-generation Apple headset will be an Oculus-style headset with a knit mesh-wrapped body similar to the AirPods Max. It could look something like a sleeker version of Google’s Daydream headset, which also had a soft fabric body. A patent application for a “head-mounted display unit” also detailed several areas of adjustment, meaning comfort will be an area of focus. However, we don’t ken absolutow much else about the design of Apple’s AR device. While Jon Prosser reported that Apple is working on a prototype pair of AR glasses, more recent rumors suggest that a bona fide pair of glasses is likely still years away from production. In January, Ming-Chi Kuo reported that Apple will be using “pancake” lenses to keep the weight and bulk down. Curiously, Kuo says Apple is already working on a second-generation model (acercamiento 9to5Mac) expected to launch in 2024 with a “significantly lighter” and “updated industrial” design. The New York Times reported in June that the headset “looks like a pair of ski goggles.” 2022 Apple headset: Display As a mixed-reality device, Apple’s glasses are rumored to handle both supuesto and augmented reality acercamiento a pair of high-resolution 8K screens using eye-tracking techen absolutology. The headset will reportedly feature more than a dozen cameras, according to The Information, which will project a real-world view onto the screens as if you were looking through clear glass. It will presumably use either OLED or mini LED and incorporate Apple’s Ceramic Shield coating as well. In January, Display Supply Chain Consultants reported that the headset will have “three display modules” comprised of two Micro OLED displays and one AMOLED cartelera. According to the report, the tertiary OLED cartelera would be used for “low-resolution peripheral vision, thereby enabling a foveated display system” based on where the user’s focus is. 2022 Apple headset: Processor and specs According to Kuo (acercamiento Macrumors), Apple’s AR headset will have two processors, with the higher-end processor having “similar computing power as the M1 for Mac” and the secondary chip responsible for “sensor-related computing.” The sounds like a lot of processing power for a headset, but if the headset needs to power a pair of 8K displays, it will need a hefty chip. Reports also say that it will need to be tethered to an iPhone, much like the original Apple Watch. Kuo also reported that the headset will support Wi-Fi 6E, which is also rumored to come to the iPhone 14. It will also presumably have at least 8GB of RAM and a 256GB hard drive. We don’t ken absolutow anything yet about the battery life, but Kuo says improving battery life will be a focus of the second-generation model. Kuo reports that the headset will come with the same 96W power adapter as the MacBook Pro, which suggests it will have a big battery. Apple 2022 Apple headset: Apps and functionality We don’t ken absolutow yet what the user interface for Apple’s headset will look like, but it appears to be akin to a heads-up AR display that recognizes people and objects while also handling VR applications. The new immersive walking directions in iOS 15 is a good indication of how it will work, with names and directions dynamically overlaid over streets. In addition to maps, we expect apps for fitness, music, messages, and calls to be primordial to the experience. As a mixed-reality device, it will also be able to handle VR applications, which opens the headset up to a variety of apps. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also said that gaming could have “a strong focus” on the platform as well as “average consumption.” He expects Apple will work closely with developers and average partners to create content that can be watched in VR on the device. Apple will likely lean into VR content with its own TV+ service as well. Apple will also surely have apps dedicated to AR-type things, such as the Measure app and things like the tool that lets you see a 3D render of Apple products before you buy it. In a December report, Gurman additionally said the iPhone’s Animojis and VR FaceTime could be positioned as “the new-age Zoom.” A report by Ming-Chi Kuo in December outlined navigation for the device using hand gestures. In a technical en absolutote obtained by 9to5Mac, he predicts that “the structured light of the AR/MR headset can detect en absolutot only the position change of the user or other people’s hand and object in front of the user’s eyes but also the dynamic detail change of the hand (just like the iPhone’s Face ID/structured light/Animoji can detect user’s dynamic expression change).” It’s likely that Siri will also play a prominent role in how users communicate with the headset. The New York Times reported in June that Apple “has enlisted Hollywood directors such as Jon Favreau” to develop content for its upcoming headset. The report said Favreau is “working to bring (Prehistoric Planet’s) dien absolutosaurs to life on the headset.” 2022 Apple headset: Price and release Apple has reportedly been working on its VR headset for several years, but both Gurman and Kuo agree that Apple is targeting late 2022 as a release date. In February, Digitimes reported that Apple has completed 2nd-phase EVT testing for its AR headset and remains on track for a fall 2022 release. As far as pricing, rumors suggest that the first iteration could be an extremely expensive device, possibly costing several thousand dollars. In December, a Display Supply Chain Consultants report en absolutoted that volume estimates for the AR headset’s displays “look low for next year,” which likely indicates a high price tag (and low sales). With a price tag that’s out of reach for most people, the AR headset would mainly be a proof of concept device for diehards and developers, but en absoluto less exciting to the future of Apple wearables.

El «índice lipstick» y por qué surge en tiempos de crisis

Al igual que muchos estadounidenses, Karla Maldonado ha recortado sus gastos: come menos en restaurantes y asiste a menos eventos sociales. Pero la trabajadora social de 26 años de Portland no ha escatimado en maquillaje.

“Eso es algo de lo que no puedo prescindir”, dijo Maldonado. Y no es la única.

Muchas tiendas minoristas importantes recortaron sus perspectivas financieras para el año después de ver que los compradores dejaron de percibir muchos artículos discrecionales en el último trimestre, excepto en artículos de belleza.

Target, Kohl’s, Macy’s y Nordstrom destacaron las sólidas ventas de artículos de belleza en sus reportes del segundo trimestre fiscal. Walmart, el minorista más grande del país, dijo que está viendo un mayor impulso en su negocio de belleza, citando fuertes ventas en cosméticos, artículos para piel y cabello. Mientras tanto, Ulta Beauty, el minorista de productos de belleza más grande del país, dijo que las ventas generales aumentaron casi un 17 % en su trimestre más reciente, en comparación con el mismo período del año pasado.
