Apple launch event next week set to finally unveil the new iPhone 14 lineup

September is right around the corner, which means Apple fans are excited to see if their iPhone 14 speculations are correct. 

Apple is hosting an event on September 7 at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. 

The event 

Since 2020, COVID-19 restrictions have prompted Apple to use pre-recorded videos for its launch events. 

This year is the first in-person event since 2019. The event will also be streamed on Apple’s website and YouTube. 

The Apple event usually attracts millions of viewers on YouTube and attracts the attention of millions of people around the world.

For the 2022 edition, the event will use the slogan “far out,” which could allude to new features like night sky photography. 

The iPhone 14, Apple Watch, and iOS 16 are expected to be unveiled at the Apple event. 

Whether the iPad and Mac will be ready to launch remains to be seen as the software is incomplete. 

iPhone 14 

The iPhone is Apple’s bestseller and has been the subject of speculation for a year. 

The iPhone 13 line will be the last to add the Mini to its lineup, as Apple will add a larger model instead.

Several media outlets and analysts also expect the Pro models to receive further updates, with the notch being replaced with a pill-shaped cutout. 

The Pro models will also feature the new A16 Bionic chip, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will continue to use the 2021 A15 chipset. 

The biggest news for the iPhone 14 is its price, which many expect to see a $100 increase.

The Apple Watch 

In 2022, Apple will bring major updates to its Watch, adding more features and reducing the price. 

The Wall Street Journal reported that the company was evaluating a body temperature sensor in the new Apple Watch to monitor fertility and sleep. The Apple Watch Series 8 could also add a “Pro” model with a larger screen and a more durable finish. 

The company has previously released watches with expensive case materials such as gold, ceramic, and titanium. 

The new “Pro” model could pave the way for the first high-end Apple Watches with extra features that cheaper models lack. 

Apple is also expected to launch an updated version of the Apple Watch SE as an entry-level model.

iOS 16 

Earlier this year, the beta of iOS 16 caused a stir and provided a number of important new features.

The software update includes the ability to customize the iPhone lock screen and change the clock font on the lock screen. 

iOS 16 also allows users to cancel or edit iMessages within minutes of sending them. 

It introduces short-term credit from Apple called Apple Pay Later, which lets you buy things online with Apple Pay. 

The problem is that they would have to pay for the item in four interest-free installments. 

With iOS 16, users can turn their iPhone into an HD webcam for a Mac laptop or desktop.

The software is available for other iPhone models, but it remains to be seen who will be able to update their system.
