Apple unveiled the iPhone 14. At its fall event, the technology giant presented the Apple Watch for extreme athletes, AirPods headphones that cancel out even more noise than before, and the iPhone 14 models that for the first time include support for satellite communication and real-time accident detection; All models sold in the US will now only support eSim - what will happen to them in Israel?
Just yesterday they were announced at a festive event and already today we are informed of the prices in Israel of the 4 new Apple devices: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The first chain to announce the prices of the iPhone 14 is the Electric Warehouse chain, which announced that the new devices will arrive in preparation for Rosh Hashanah, on September 22.

As mentioned, Apple presented the global prices and delivery times, but not specifically in Israel. Globes has learned that the sale in Israel is expected to start on September 22. According to a senior source in the market, this is the first possible date for the start of the sale, and it may be postponed even a week, to September 29.
The prices of the new iPhones remained similar in the United States, the Plus model which costs 899 dollars actually replaces the mini model whose price was 699 dollars. But all other prices remained the same, despite the rumors.
However, another senior official in the market tells Globes that the prices that are expected to be here in Israel will increase compared to last year and they are expected to be as follows: starting from NIS 3,590 for the basic iPhone 14, starting at NIS 3,700 for the Plus model, starting at NIS 4,200 for the iPhone 14 Pro model And starting from NIS 5,000 for the iPhone 14 Pro Max model.
The Dynamics Network confirms the dates published in Globes. Also according to the iDigital network, the launch date is 22.9, while the iPhone 14 Plus version will arrive in Israel late, on 7.10.
A day after it was officially unveiled at a festive launch event, it's time to put everything on the table - what are the significant innovations in the iPhone 14 series? What changes will only come to Pro devices? And are all the new features also relevant to users in Israel? We are here to sort you out.
One of the most interesting additions we were privileged to receive with the iPhone 14 devices is the support for satellite communication - one that allows us to receive reception and connect to the network through a direct connection to the satellite. We have already talked about the advantages of using satellite communication before, so what exactly did Apple do here?
The satellite communication in the iPhone 14 series will be allowed to be used as of this moment only in emergency situations. To take advantage of it, we will have to activate a dedicated emergency mode on our device, which will allow us to connect to the satellite in order to send a distress signal and a request for help in cases where we are in an area without cellular reception.
Apple's new system will allow users to answer a few simple questions in order to report their emergency through a satellite network connection, so that emergency services can quickly access them. Apple even boasted that as long as the sky is clear, users will be able to send distress messages via satellite in just 15 seconds.
Apple announced last night that all models of the iPhone 14 series that will be sold in the US will arrive without a SIM tray - meaning without the ability to connect a physical SIM card to them. Instead, of course, Apple will allow the use of these devices only with an eSIM (embedded SIM), which allows, among other things, a quick and convenient transition between different mobile providers.
It is worth noting the fine print and that, as mentioned, this change in the iPhone devices is only relevant to iPhone devices that will be sold throughout the United States, so that it will still be possible to find in the rest of the world (and of course in Israel) an iPhone 14 that comes with a SIM tray. This is because eSIM support around the world is still very much in its infancy with the exception of the US market, so it will take some time for Apple to fully abandon the use of a dedicated SIM tray. Alongside its new emergency system, Apple introduced another system that may save our lives - a traffic accident detection system.
Apple's new dynamic island has actually become an integral part of the design of the various animations of the iPhone operating system, and as mentioned, it is a gap with dynamic change capabilities that change according to the various actions we will perform with the iPhone.
Apple provided quite a few examples of the capabilities of the new notch during last night's event: for example, a user listening to music will have a wider notch that will show him information about the song playing in the background. And what about a user who navigates using Apple's Maps app? In this case the gap will widen and show the user the directions he needs to take on his way to the destination. Also, Apple presented the multitasking capabilities of the app - for example, in the event that we both listen to music and activate a timer, the app will be divided into two parts and display information relevant to both operations at the same time.
Another and very requested change to the pro models of the iPhone 14 is in their rear camera arrays. After quite a few years in which Apple used only 12 megapixel sensors for the main camera of the iPhones, this year we finally got a sensor with a higher resolution of 48 megapixels.
Along with the change in the sensor, Apple provided several other software improvements in order to make the quality of the iPhone's images better: Apple introduced for the first time a new technology called "Photonic Engine", an image improvement technology that is based, among other things, on the company's older technology, "Deep Fusion", which is also designed to improve image quality by processing and connecting pixels from multiple images in order to present a better final image.
The price tag of iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus: 799 and 899 dollars. The base model will be available globally on September 16, and the 14 Plus will hit the market on October 7.

Will the Israeli carriers (hot mobile, golan, etc) support eSim? So that a phone purchased in the US can be used in Israel?
