I’m at Apple HQ – why three new gadgets are even BETTER than the iPhone 14

APPLE just rolled out a barrage of new gadgets including the iPhone 14 – but it’s NOT the best choice for me.

I’ve seen and hands-on all of the new gear at Apple’s California headquarters, and there are three products I’m really excited about.

The Apple Watch Ultra is a really tough piece of kit

The iPhone 14 has a lot going for it – including the new colors and the improved camera.

But here are three brand new gimmicks this stole the show at yesterday’s apple event…

Apple Watch Ultra

The Apple Watch is an absolute titan of timekeeping – it even outsells the entire Swiss watch industry.

Now Apple has made its biggest change ever with the Apple Watch Ultra.

It’s like having Bear Grylls on your wrist, with a tough exterior and plenty of ways to protect you on your next adventure.

The watch has a big and bold design made from aerospace-grade titanium.

It’s tougher and more waterproof than any Apple Watch we’ve seen. It definitely looks the part.

The GPS has been improved and there are waypoint and backtrack functions to help you get lost. A gigantic battery life of 36 hours only adds to the security.

And there’s even a dedicated bright orange action button you can use for quick settings – like B. creating GPS points as you move.

If all else fails, you can sound an 86dB siren built right into the clock’s body.

At $799/£849 it’s not cheap, but it looks like a total workhorse – and could save your life in the wild. Priceless, really!

iPhone 14 pro

The iPhone 14 looks great, sure – but the iPhone 14 Pro really stole the show.

It has a lot to offer: better low-light photography, an ultra-fast A16 processor and a brighter screen than ever.

There’s also an always-on display that lets you instantly review important information without having to tap your iPhone.

But what really caught my eye is the iPhone redesign – exclusive to the Pro model.

The “notch” at the top of the screen – first released with the iPhone X – to house Face ID is gone.

Face ID and the selfie camera are still there, but they’re not hidden in a small pill-shaped cutout.

This new “mini-notch” is called Dynamic Island.

Supposedly it was supposed to be a bad thing as it blocks part of the screen – but Apple somehow managed to turn it into a very cool feature.

The dynamic island is much smaller than the notch and turns into a notification bar of sorts.

You can tap on it to fully expand it into a proper notification popout.

And it shows running background information like music playing, a timer countdown or the progress of the ride in a taxi app.

When you play music, you see the album art and a color-matched waveform.

And Apple says it will also bring sports scores to the Dynamic Island.

It’s infinitely better than the notch and really gives the $999/£1,099 iPhone 14 Pro an edge over its cheaper sibling.

Apple AirPods Pro

I didn’t expect to be as impressed with the new AirPods Pro as I was.

After all, the gadget looks largely the same from the outside as its 2019 predecessor.

But Apple has made some significant improvements that could mean the AirPods Pro 2022 are the best wireless earbuds out there.

First, Apple changed the specs in the AirPods to offer improved sound — and most importantly, better bass.

I tried them out briefly at Apple Park HQ and the sound is impressive enough.

A brand new H2 chip inside also means you get six hours of listening time per charge – and 30 hours with the charging case.

Active noise cancellation has been improved, but it was already pretty good.

Much better is the revamped Transparency mode — a squeeze of the stem turns off the noise-cancelling and lets you hear outside noise as if you weren’t wearing AirPods.

Importantly, transparency mode makes it easy to hear important things like voices—while blocking out loud ambient noise: think trains, traffic, or the relentless hum of an airplane cabin.

The AirPods stems are now touch-sensitive, so you can swipe up and down to change the volume with a satisfying “ear click.”

And spatial audio – the 360-degree sound offered by some music tracks and films – can now be personalized with your iPhone.

With the TrueDepth camera on the front, you can scan your head and ears to perfectly optimize your own “soundscape”.

That means you can enjoy spatial audio like never before.

And if that wasn’t enough, Apple is throwing free case engravings – including Memoji – on this chic pair of £249/$249 earbuds.

Apple has managed to pack so many improvements into the AirPods Pro that I can’t wait to really try them out.
