New Delhi: The high-end models of iPhones have proven that these mean machines can be used for other tasks than just calling, streaming, chatting, gaming, etc. – like making top-notch movies and documentaries, short videos, live music recordings, creative projects, and more.
Not only celebrities (Lady Gaga filmed “Stupid Love” on an iPhone and there are many movies filmed on the device), but also the budding professionals in India are constantly using the next-gen features in iPhones to create a whole new range of iPhones to create opportunities.
And the iPhone 14 Pro Max now gives them the freedom to explore more.
Equipped with an incredibly powerful and efficient A16 Bionic chip, a new class of professional camera system with the first-ever 48 MP main camera on iPhone with Quad-Pixel sensor and Photonic Engine, an improved image pipeline that dramatically improves photos in low light – iPhone 14 Max has introduced groundbreaking advances to make the iPhone even more essential.
The device also features accident detection, satellite emergency SOS, and an innovative new way to receive notifications and activity with Dynamic Island.
For creative professionals and casual users, the iPhone 14 Pro Max elevates the experience like never before thanks to its solid interior.
Let’s take a deep look at how this device can outperform anything on the market.
The A16 Bionic chip in iPhone 14 Pro Max enables unparalleled experiences like Dynamic Island, ensures all-day battery life and offers impressive compute photography capabilities.
With two high-performance cores and four highly efficient cores, the new 6-core CPU is up to 40 percent faster than the competition and easily handles demanding workloads.
A16 Bionic features an accelerated 5-core GPU with 50 percent more memory bandwidth – perfect for graphics-intensive games and apps, and a new 16-core Neural Engine capable of nearly 17 trillion operations per second.
Using Apple’s industry-leading Fusion architecture to combine performance and power savings, the chip delivers more performance at a fraction of the performance compared to the competition.
Fundamental to the professional camera system, A16 Bionic offers incredible computational photography capabilities. The CPU, GPU, neural engine and image signal processor work together seamlessly to support the new camera hardware and perform up to 4 trillion operations per photo, according to Apple.
The pictures and videos have become simply stunning thanks to the professional camera system.
The Photonic Engine has brought photos to life through a deep integration of hardware and software. It applies Deep Fusion technology in the imaging process to deliver exceptional detail and preserve subtle textures, deliver better colors and get more information in a photo.
The new 48MP main camera lets you go beyond the three fixed lenses and add a new 2x telephoto option, offering a familiar focal length that’s great for portrait mode.
Additionally, the quad-pixel sensor combines all four pixels into one large quad-pixel, equal to 2.44 microns, resulting in amazing low-light capture and keeping the photo size at a handy 12MP.
The quad-pixel sensor also allows for a 2x telephoto option, using the sensor’s center 12-megapixel for full-resolution photos and 4K video without digital zoom.
This delivers optical quality at a familiar focal length, which is great for features like portrait mode.
The quad-pixel sensor also brings benefits to professional workflows, optimizing the details in ProRAW.
With a new machine learning model built specifically for the quad-pixel sensor, iPhone now captures 48MP ProRAW with an unprecedented level of detail, enabling new creative workflows for professional users.
For video lovers, there’s a new Action mode for incredibly smooth-looking videos that adapts to strong shock, movement and vibration, even if the video is shot in the middle of the action.
Cinema mode is now available in 4K at 30 frames per second (fps) and 4K at 24 fps, along with professional workflows for video including ProRes and end-to-end Dolby Vision HDR.
Design-wise, the iPhone 14 Pro Max features a beautiful surgical-grade stainless steel and textured matte glass design in four stunning colors – Deep Purple, Silver, Gold, and Space Black – in 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1 TB.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max starts at Rs 139,900 in India (available now with attractive offers during the festive sale) and goes up to Rs 189,000 (1TB model).
It comes with a 6.7 inch display with a resolution of 2796 x 1290 pixels. The aspect ratio of iPhone 14 Pro Max is 19.5:9, allowing users to enjoy vivid and crystal clear images while streaming or gaming.
This houses a Super Retina XDR display with ProMotion, which features the always-on display for the first time on the iPhone.
The advanced display also offers the same HDR peak brightness as Pro Display XDR and the highest outdoor peak brightness in a smartphone: up to 2000 nits, which is twice as bright as the iPhone 13 Pro.
Verdict: If you’re an amateur photographer, a video maker, or part of the growing economy of creators, the iPhone 14 Pro Max is your go-to choice.
For the emerging smartphone users in India, the device is something that offers them a wholesome experience. It’s also not a bad idea to flaunt it a bit at get togethers and weekend parties.
