At its “Far Out” presentation on September 7, Apple will introduce a number of devices. Let’s take a look at what we may expect over the next 3 days when we should see a range of launches.
iPhone 14 series
Most readers are likely eagerly anticipating Apple’s official introduction of the iPhone 14 series. There should be four variations on the display and other elements listed below:
- The 6.1-inch OLED LTPS iPhone 14 and the 6.7-inch OLED LTPS iPhone 14 Max
- 6.1-inch OLED LTPO on the iPhone 14 Pro (will support ProMotion for faster refresh rate)
- iPhone 14 Pro Max will support 6.7-inch OLED LTPO (will support ProMotion for faster refresh rate)
According to the most recent projections, the iPhone 14 family will start at $749, making it less expensive than the iPhone 13, which started at $799. (not counting the iPhone 13 mini). Instead of paying $999 and above for the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, customers will now have to start at $1,049 and work their way up, which is anticipated to result in a $50 price hike.
Although some readers might think that Apple is finding new methods to charge its millions of dedicated customers more money, it is unclear whether Apple has a choice, given that global inflation has driven up the price of many components. Significant improvements are also being made to the “Pro” models, including the exclusive A16 Bionic shipping, faster, more efficient LPDDR5 RAM, a 48MP primary camera, and a ProMotion display. Keep in mind that these premium models might also be offered in 2TB variants; hence, these and other variables could cause the price of the upcoming models to increase.
In case you weren’t familiar with the design, the notch will still be there on the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max, albeit smaller than it is on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. According to various rumors and sources, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will include a “pill + punch-hole” cutout. The Chinese iPhone 14 knockoffs that have already hit the market before Apple’s announcement can give you a better idea.
The only things we meant to cover in this roundup were product releases, even though we are aware that Apple will also release its yearly software upgrades for several different devices. If you think Apple will surprise everyone with a surprise announcement, let us know in the comments. Please participate in the poll below as well so that we can learn which product launch you are most anticipating.
The original AirPods Pro, released about three years ago, was the first Apple device to support Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode. They also come in a brand-new, miniature design. At the September presentation, the second iteration of the AirPods Pro will start where the first one left off—with the design’s enhancement and refinement.
Although we shouldn’t expect health features with the AirPods Pro 2, additional colors and lossless audio support might be offered. Thanks to an “enhanced chip” integrated inside the product, users of the wireless earbuds may have access to additional features and the choice to look for the charging case through Apple’s “Find My” network in the event that it is lost or stolen.
Removing the stem, which makes the new model resemble Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, will make the second-generation AirPods Pro stand out visually. Unfortunately, don’t expect the charging case to support USB-C charging, while new designs that support the new interface should be available by 2023. Additionally, improved Active Noise Cancellation and a little increase in battery life might be included.
Apple Watch Series 8
The Apple Watch Series 8 will come in three different variants; details regarding the “Pro” model are given below. At the presentation, both the standard model and the successor to the first Apple Watch SE will be introduced. The rumored colors for the Apple Watch Series 8 include Midnight, Starlight, PRODUCT(RED), and Silver; however, the actual choice of finishes will be disclosed on the official unveiling.
Between the Apple Watch Series 8 and Series 7, there won’t be any design modifications, and neither will there be any extra sensors. It won’t surprise us if Apple employs the same Watch SE chassis for the low-cost SE model in order to reduce production and other costs. With some functionalities removed, this tactic will also help cut the wearable’s price and appeal to a wider audience.
Apple Watch Pro
The Apple Watch Pro is anticipated to be the first member of the company’s new “Pro” -a designated family of smartwatches. In addition to offering more improvements than the Apple Watch Series 8, this wearable will be more expensive. To begin, let’s examine the parameters in greater detail. The design reportedly includes flat sides and a 1.99-inch (47mm) display.
The robust housing is stated to be more complex than metal, and the display is advertised as impact-resistant. The larger display calls for a larger battery inside the vehicle. Apple might not sell as many copies of the luxury Apple Watch Series 8, given that it will allegedly cost $999.
Although there may not be more than one million Apple Watch Pro shipments, considering the anticipated $999 suggested retail price, the higher revenues can offset this. Be warned that there won’t be any more Apple Watch variants; all of them will have the same SoC as the Apple Watch Series 7.
The new chipset can be given a different moniker to trick customers into believing they would get to see fresh hardware in action. Before estimating the number of people who will be interested in the Apple Watch Pro, let’s see how much it differs from the other two models.
