Apple has just unveiled its best iPhones, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus. The base model has not risen in price, but at the same time has gained a lot of new features. However, the larger iPhone 14 Plus has the same features.
iPhone 14 received a screen with a diagonal of 6.1 inches, the iPhone 14 Plus has a screen with a diagonal of 6.7 inches. Apple did not provide battery parameters, but said that these are the best iPhones in history in terms of autonomy. And performance too: the new items are built on the Apple A15 Bionic SoC with a 5-core GPU, a 6-core CPU and a 16-core NPU. The company claims that the performance of the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus is higher than that of absolutely any flagship in any price category.
The novelties received an improved 12-megapixel TrueDepth front camera, which now has autofocus.
The main camera is also improved once again. And although formally the resolution is still 12 megapixels, but the sensors have become larger, and the lenses have become better. Using Photonic Engine technology, the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus cameras capture twice as much light as the iPhone 13 cameras. Another notable innovation in the iPhone 14 camera is Action mode with improved stabilization when shooting video.
iPhone 14 – the first Apple phones without SIM slots: there is no way to install a physical SIM card in the iPhone now. The company has completely switched to using eSIM.
Another important feature of the iPhone 14 is satellite connectivity. Formally, Apple is in the role of catching up here, since Huawei offered satellite communication in its Mate 50, presented yesterday. But the meaning of the work is similar: you can use it in an extreme situation, when ordinary cellular communication does not work.
You can only send text messages by first pointing the phone at the satellite using the appropriate software. You cannot make calls using satellite communications. Apple did not say which system satellites are used (Huawei, for example, Beidou), but the service is limited in its work: firstly, it is free only in the first two years of using the phone, and secondly, it will be possible to use it only from November to USA and Canada. By the way, the iPhone 14 supports 5G.
New items will be available in five colors. The iPhone 14 in the basic version in the US is priced at $800, the cost of the iPhone 14 Plus starts at $900. Pre-orders in the US will begin on September 9th. iPhone 14 will go on sale September 16, iPhone 14 Plus – October 7.

TCL CSOT announced a number of new displays, including an interesting new domed OLED gaming monitor for PC.
The new gaming monitors were unveiled at DTC 2023 (Global Display Tech-ecosystem Conference 2023), which is taking place in Wuhan, China. The new gaming monitor is equipped with a 31-inch dome-shaped OLED panel with a resolution of 4K and a frequency of 120 Hz, and the dome shape, according to the developers, allows you to give a 3D feeling. There are very few details about the model yet.
Jun Zhao, CEO of TCL CSOT, said: “With significant advances in display technologies including LCD and OLED, we have made remarkable breakthroughs to provide superior user experience. We will continue to provide high-quality products for a variety of scenarios, working closely with our industry partners.”
The company also introduced a 27-inch 8K monitor with eye tracking and 3D support.
The world’s first curved OLED IJP monitor with a 65-inch diagonal, 8K resolution and a frequency of 120 Hz was announced. Its resolution is 7680 x 4320 pixels.

Small, but remote. Corsair unveils SSD MP600 Micro in M.2 2242 form factor
Most modern solid-state drives have the M.2 2280 form factor, but sometimes you need a much more compact SSD – M.2 2242. Corsair did just that.
In the photo you can see the MP600 Micro model in the specified form factor. The length of such a drive is 42 mm, although there is also an M.2 2230 that is only 30 mm long.
The new product supports PCIe 4.0 and is characterized by data transfer speeds of up to 5100 MB/s for reading and 4300 MB/s for writing. Performance is respectively 600,000 and 890,000 IOPS. These parameters are typical for the 1 TB model, which also has a resource of 600 TBW.
It remains to add that the new product is based on 176-layer Micron 3D TLC NAND memory and is priced at $70.
Huawei defeated American sanctions: the Chinese company now has its own 5-nanometer processor
Five years under strict American sanctions, which cut Huawei off from advanced single-chip systems, have yielded results: the company has its own 5-nanometer processor made in China.
There is an interesting story with this processor. Five days ago, Huawei introduced the Qingyun L540 laptop based on the Kirin 9006C SoC: and at that time, all the characteristics of the device were revealed, but nothing was reported about the central element of the hardware platform. Now Huawei has updated the description on the website, which clearly states that the Kirin 9006C is manufactured using the 5 nm process technology.
The official description says that the single-chip system has eight cores and a maximum frequency of 3.13 GHz. The Gizmochina resource adds: the CPU is made according to a two-cluster design – with four Arm Cortex-A77 cores and four more Arm Cortex-A55 cores.
Let’s remember that earlier Huawei had a 7-nanometer SoC Kirin 9000S, and it is used in the flagships of the Mate 60 line. Kirin 9000S is produced by SMIC, and the same company most likely produces the 5-nanometer Kirin 9006C.
