Rumors predicted that the next Apple event was very close. Finally, the Cupertino company has sent invitations to the press for its next Keynote. It will take place next Wednesday, September 7 at Apple Park.
According to the tradition of the event, we expect to see the new iPhone 14, but this product will not come alone. We’ll also likely see new Apple Watch models, release dates for iOS 16, iPadOS 16 (which we know is coming later), WatchOS 9, and more.
‘Far out’, the next confirmed Apple event
This year’s invitation is called ‘Far out’, and as usual does not provide more details than the place, the date (which will be a Tuesday instead of the traditional Wednesday) and the time of the event. However, the rumor mill allows us to get an idea of what to expect. Let’s see.
iPhone 14. The arrival of the new generation of iPhone would be Apple’s initial step to offer its most advanced chips only in the Pro versions. In this sense, the iPhone 14 Pro would debut the Apple A16 Bionic, while the iPhone 14 and 14 Max will remain. with last year’s chip, the Apple A15 Bionic. As we can see, the mini model would disappear.
In addition, changes would come at the design level, with the disappearance of the notch as such due to a pill-shaped hole, updates at the camera level. The battery section would also receive a significant boost, turning some variants of the terminal into true beasts of autonomy. You can see all the updated details in our live post.
Apple Watch Series 8. To accompany the launch of the next iPhone, Apple would also roll out three new smartwatches. We are talking about an Apple Watch Series 8, a new Apple Watch SE and an Apple Watch with the “Pro” label, designed specifically for athletes and more demanding users. The watches would arrive with the new S8 chip.
AirPods Pro 2. The new generation of Apple’s wireless In-Ear headphones is also a candidate. According to rumours, we would be facing a complete design change, a design that would completely eliminate the leg of the headphones, something that reminds us of the Piexel Buds. They are also expected to include sports tracking capabilities.
iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and WatchOS 9 release dates. We know what will be the novelties that will arrive in these operating systems because they have already been announced, so we do not know when we will be able to start enjoying them in their final version. This question could be resolved in the September Keynote.
In the case of iOS 16, rumors suggest that it could be released a week after the event. If it is confirmed that, on the day it is launched, it will not be accompanied by iPadOS 16. Those from Cupertino have confirmed that they will release the version of the system for iPad later, under iPadOS 16.1. It is time to wait to know how this section will evolve.
There is more?. Yes, there is more, at least from the point of view of rumors. Although there is less chance that we will see these products, there could also be an iPad Pro with an M2 processor, an iPad with an A14 processor. Even new computers: Mac mini, Mac pro and MacBook pro, in all cases with M2 chips.
