iPhone 14 hands-on: We catch rare glimpse of NEW model with very special feature

FINALLY the new iPhone 14 is here – and The Sun has had an early look at the gadget.

I spent the day at Apple’s special launch event and got to see the brand new gadget in the flesh – or metal.

As predicted, it’s coming in two variants: iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus.

That’s a departure from last year’s iPhone 13 and 13 Mini.

The iPhone 14 has a 6.1-inch screen, while the Plus features a 6.7-inch display.

Apple says the new model has ”the best battery life ever in an iPhone”.

Of course that’s impossible to check right now, but we’ll be testing it out soon enough.

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.

It’s powered by last year’s A15 chip, with an improved GPU to help boost gaming.

Apple says the new iPhone offers 49% 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% boost to low-light selfies.

Apple has equipped the iPhone 14 with a new and more advanced video stabilisation mode.

It’s called Action Mode, using the full sensor to make videos look incredibly stable.

Demo footage shown by Apple during the keynote was very impressive.

Unsurprisingly, the iPhone 14 features support for speedy 5G internet.

And you can also opt for an eSIM on your iPhone, ditching physical SIM cards.

It’s possible to store multiple eSIMs on a single device.

And it can’t be lost or stolen.

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.

Satellite ’Find My’ alerts that let you relay your location to friends and family is available for free for two years with iPhone 14 purchases.

It’s only offered in the US and Canada initially – live from November.

The iPhone 14 costs $799, while the iPhone 14 Plus comes in at $899.

The $699 Mini we saw last year is gone, so the base model is now $100 more.

In the UK, you’ll pay £849 for the iPhone 14 and £949 for the iPhone 14 Plus.

Like-for-like, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 have identical pricing in the US. The UK has experienced a small price hike.

The iPhone 14 is out first on September 16, followed by the iPhone 14 Plus on October 7.

Can it do enough to keep Android rivals at bay? We’ll find out soon enough.
