The Morning After: The verdict on the iPhone 14 Pro

It was a big day for tech reviews. In addition to the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro, there are also new action cams from GoPro and DJI – and we have detailed tests for all of them.

But let’s start with the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. As Apple embraces higher-resolution cameras, always-on displays, and smaller screen cutouts — now dubbed the dynamic island — there are new features, new technologies, and plenty to evaluate. The new 48MP camera doesn’t translate to dramatic improvements in photography (pictures and video are still great!), but the new implementation of screen cropping is a smart distraction for what was once a divisive notch. Sure, we still use Lightning chargers, and yes, iPhones aren’t for everyone, but there are more noticeable changes to this year’s Pro phones. Check out Cherlynn Low’s full review here.

One change makes the difference

While the GoPro Hero 11 looks the same as the 10, there are a few additional shooting modes, with SuperView available up to 5K at 60fps and 4K at 120fps. There’s also a new linear mode with 360-degree horizontal lock and the ability to record in full screen. The latter is more of a tool to capture absolutely anything and then “punch” out the desired aspect ratio. The Hero 11 Black costs the same as last year’s flagship: $399.98 with a subscription or $500 without. Check out our full review by Engadget’s James Trew, who put the camera through its paces.

More battery life and a new bracket.

DJI wisely went back to an action cam form factor for its third Osmo action camera, addressing the overheating and other complaints from users who bought the Action 2. It also introduced features that trump the Hero 10 like the magnetic clip mount and long-lasting, fast-charging battery. However, it still doesn’t beat GoPro where it really counts: the footage. But for many it’s a good option, especially at the base price of $329.

No upgrade year for most.

iPhone 14

Unlike this year’s Pro model, Apple’s base iPhone hasn’t changed much. Pour one out for the iPhone mini, which sadly didn’t survive more than two years. The iPhone 14 is quite similar to the iPhone 13, which was very similar to the iPhone 12. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad phone — it’s just less of an upgrade for anyone using an iPhone that’s only two years old. For US readers, the move from SIM cards to eSIMs is probably the biggest change. Apple may have done away with the SIM card tray early on, but it could give US carriers the boost they need to adopt the format. Compare it to the disappearance of the headphone jack.

The perpetrator reportedly held a grudge against Mark Zuckerberg.

Northeastern University has been the victim of an unusual technology-related bomb attack. CNN reported that someone sent a bomb-like package to Boston University’s virtual reality lab at Holmes Hall, injuring the hand of the man who opened the container. The unidentified attacker seems to have a grudge against VR and especially meta. CNN Sources claimed a “rambling” note in the package, which Meta boss Mark Zuckerberg slammed, as well as the connections between the science and VR developers.

The base game won’t cost you a dime after October 18th.

Almost exactly eight years after first arriving on PC, The Sims 4 is played for free.

If you have already paid for the original version or decide to purchase before October 17th , the company will also offer some free DLCs. However, you have to pay for all content in the existing 12 (!) DLC packs.

But it expects its device experience division to get there by 2030.

Samsung is committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions across the company by 2050 and will spend KRW 7 trillion ($5 billion) over the next seven and a half years to achieve it. While its plans are unlikely to be as aggressive as those of Microsoft, which previously vowed to be carbon negative by the end of the decade, it plans to net-zero its device division by 2030.
