On the other hand, a high dynamic range gyroscope powers a crash detection feature that can directly contact emergency services if a person meets a major accident.
However, Apple also added emergency SoS through satellite, which enables iPhone 14 to connect directly to satellites for communication processes in emergencies.
Hence, after having amazing features and smart technology, the prices are comparatively high compared to other smartphones. Though, it is important to note that PTA recently increased the taxes. As a result, the iPhone cost has become quite high in Pakistan.
