Apple has announced that its next event will take place on September 7 at the Apple Park headquarters. The meeting will begin at 10:00 AM PT, and both in-person attendees and online viewers can watch the proceedings via live streams on the company’s website and YouTube channel.
Since this is a September event, we may expect that Apple will highlight their newest iPhone models. An iPhone 14 Plus/Max with the same footprint as the iPhone 14 Pro Max and the same set of internals as the iPhone 14 was released this year. The iPhone mini has been retired and replaced by this model.
New iPhones are rumored to feature a modified display with a pill-shaped cutout in place of the conventional notch. Though it was shrunk slightly from the year before, the notch is still one of the widest we’ve seen on a phone in production. The redesigned pill-shaped design reduces perceived bulk while including all the sensors required for Face ID.
An always-on display would also be new for the iPhone this year, though it is likely to be exclusive to the Pro variants. The next-generation A16 processor is also rumored to be reserved for the Pro models, with the A14 rumored to remain in the standard variants. It is anticipated that the Pro versions’ cameras would likewise increase in resolution to 48 megapixels. Meanwhile, an updated front autofocus camera is being added to all models.
The new Apple Watch Series 8 would be available at the same time as the new iPhones. It’s likely to come in both a regular and Pro model, with the latter including a larger screen, more robust titanium construction, and shatterproof glass. There has been talk that the Pro version included a thermometer.
Updated iPad Pro models are also feasible, though they are more likely to be introduced in October alongside any Mac updates.
