Apple has officially announced its highly-anticipated September event, which is scheduled on Wednesday, September 7.
Named “Far Out”, the tech giant is highly expected to introduce the iPhone 14 and its series of models, as the company’s autumn events are typically the time when the new phone models are announced.
One of the main upgrades to the iPhone 14 lineup this 2022 shall be the addition of the iPhone 14 Max. This will be the very first time for Apple to offer a 6.7-inch iPhone unit with the “Pro” features and price, at under a $1,000 price point.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are believed to get an evident design change. Instead of the notch, the units will have new hole + pill-shaped cutouts on the display, allowing for a slight increase in screen real estate. The Pro models are also rumored to get a major camera upgrade for both the front-facing camera and back cameras.
Alongside the iPhone 14, the tech giant is also expected to announce the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro. The latter is expected to be the largest upgrade, with a bigger form factor and new durable titanium design.
Last but not least, Apple shall likely announce the release date for iOS 16, tvOS 16 and watchOS 9 during this September event.
Apple’s September 7 “Far Out” Event will be held at 10 am PDT.
This year, the iPhone 14 event shall be in-person, based from Apple’s invite. This finally breaks Apple’s run of virtual iPhone events held as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is still expected that the event will include some pre-recorded video throughout Apple Park. A number of Apple executives and employees will also appear during the event, including Tim Cook, Craig Federighi, Greg Joswiak, and more.
Apple says the in-person part of the event will take place in Steve Jobs Theater. This is quite different from WWDC, which included an in-person component held inside the ring at Apple Park. It is unclear how much of this event will be in-person versus virtual.
The September 7 Far Out event will be livestreamed across the Apple website, their YouTube channel and via the Apple TV app on iPad, iPhone, Mac and Apple TV.
