Tech giant Apple will hold its first launch event on Wednesday, September 7, plus the event is now featured on the company’s site. Like all Apple events, if you pay a visit to the page on an iPhone or iPad, you can easily see an interactive augmented reality easter egg.
Apple has revealed the schedule for their September event, typically the event where the next generation iPhone is announced before its world-wide launch. At the company's base of operations in Cupertino there will be a launch event on September 7th, 3am on the morning hours of September 8 in Australia
It is now official
As the rumors have implied for a few weeks, the company will have its upcoming substantial Special Event on September 7, 2022. Although other recent functions have been online-only due to the COVID epidemic, Apple is back to welcoming some to join them at the Steve Jobs theater in person for this. Anyone will also have the opportunity to view online, too. The event commences at 10am Pacific Time (1pm ET, 5pm UTC).
The company is expected to launch two major product collections at the event: The iPhone 14 products and Apple Watch series 8 items. Both of these are whispered to have some substantial changes.
The iPhone 14 is whispered to come in 4 variants: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The "mini" size is gone, switched out by a bigger non-pro model. The Pro varieties, at the very least, will likely have significant new features such as an always-on display, massive 48-megapixel rear camera, greatly improved battery life, as well as a fast all new A16 processor.
The Apple Watch series 8 is whispered to have a slightly refined design with a flatter display, and also an all new, bigger, extra-durable "sport" style might just join the range. A body temperature sensor may possibly make its first appearance, too.
Is 'Far out' a clue to a little something?
Apple's fun event invites often drive at a primary theme of the products or services that will be announced. The tagline for this event is "Far out" and features a star field in the shape of the Apple logo. There is the obvious implication, that the words "far out" signifies that Apple is mosting likely to unveil devices that are, well, far from release. Possibly an AR headset, Apple Car, or Homepod with screen. That would definitely be very out of character for the company, although.
Might this be an indication of the camera features of the new iPhone 14 Pro?
Just like almost all iPhone launches we can expect to see accessory and case manufacturers launching new products to coincide with the launch of the iPhone 14. This year may see lots more appealing accessories as Apple is rumored to be making some big improvements to the style of the new iPhone. Protective cases particularly are most likely to be quite different, so watch out for those from organizations such as Speck, Otterbox, Campad Electronics as well as Case-Mate.
