(CNN Spanish) — Every year, Apple surprises with a series of new products and 2022 was no exception. From Cupertino, California, Tim Cook introduced the Apple Watch Series 8, a new Apple Watch SE, the Apple Watch Ultra, a new generation of AirPods Pro, and, as expected, the new iPhone 14 series.

The new line of smartphones, which includes the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, promises better front-facing camera photos thanks to its Photonic Engine technology, which delivers brighter colors in low-light conditions. light.
