Apple has lastly formally introduced the date of its subsequent occasion, so we now know that 12 September is after we’ll set eyes on the iPhone 15 line up. However whereas the subsequent technology of Apple’s smartphone is all however a given, the corporate by no means makes use of an occasion to disclose only one product. From iPads to Apple Watches, there’ll doubtless be tons on present alongside the principle occasion.
As ever, rumours concerning the subsequent variations of Apple’s, nicely, the whole lot, have been doing the rounds for the previous couple of months. And like yearly, we’ve got a fairly stable thought of what to anticipate from the occasion – though there’s each probability Apple may shock us. Primarily based on all of the rumours and leaks we have heard, this is what we’re anticipating to see on 12 September. And remember, you can watch the reside occasion proper right here on Artistic Bloq.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Professional
This one’s a given. Apple virtually at all times pronounces its new iPhones in September, besides when a world pandemic will get in the best way (and even then it was solely a month delayed). And with a couple of persistent rumours doing the rounds, it appears like a couple of updates are locked in for 2023.
Followers have been begging for a USB-C iPhone for years, and it appears Apple is lastly relenting – however solely after EU regulation compelled its hand. All the iPhone 15 line up is rumoured to be getting USB-C, which may enable for quicker charging speeds and compatibility with tons extra equipment.
By way of design, the iPhone 15 Professional (or is that 15 Extremely?) is rumoured to be the primary to characteristic a titanium physique – one thing the occasion invite itself could be hinting at. We’re additionally anticipating smaller bezels than ever, and elevated storage – going all the best way as much as 2TB. The entry-level iPhone 15, in the meantime, is rumoured to be getting the Dynamic Island, which iPhone 14 Professional customers have loved since final September. For each hearsay in a single place, take a look at our most important iPhone 15 spherical up.
Apple Watch Collection 9 and Apple Watch Extremely 2
Nearly as sure as the brand new iPhone is the brand new Apple Watch. However we’re not anticipating something groundbreaking right here – all rumours level to a reasonably iterative replace. The Apple Watch Collection 9 is claimed to be maintaining the identical design that is hung round because the Collection 7, however it may characteristic, for the primary time because the 6, a quicker chip. Information of internals and options have been scant, however apparently a brand new pink color choice is coming, so there’s that.
Talking of recent colors, the Apple Watch Extremely 2 is rumoured to be arriving in a brand new, black hue. Once more, no information on the specs.
We’ll hesitate to make use of the title ‘AirPods Professional 3’ right here, because the rumoured replace is a critically minor one. Based on Apple leaker Mark Gurman (under), the AirPods Professional case is ready to be up to date to characteristic USB-C charging. If Lightning is being changed for the iPhone 15, it is smart that Apple will need to make the AirPods constant, so customers do not require two completely different charging cables.
iOS 17, WatchOS 10 and macOS Sonoma
Apple has already introduced its new software program updates for the iPhone, Apple Watch and Mac. However we will count on the corporate to disclose on 12 September precisely once they’ll be out there to obtain – doubtless between 13 – 21 September.
iOS 17 brings updates together with interactive widgets and a brand new Standby Mode that shows data when the cellphone is charging in a panorama orientation. WatchOS 10, in the meantime, guarantees the most important overhaul the Apple Watch UI has seen, with just about each app redesigned to reap the benefits of the complete width of the show.
Imaginative and prescient Professional
Apple’s first main new product announcement in years, the Imaginative and prescient Professional launch made waves throughout WWDC again in June. Whereas Apple most likely will not dedicate a ton of time to the brand new system, it will most likely need to remind viewers about its VR headset, and may reveal some new particulars alongside the best way. At $3,499, Imaginative and prescient Professional is sort of ludicrously costly, however with two shows, every the scale of a postage stamp, and that includes 23 million pixels (“greater than a 4K TV for every eye”), the sheer specs of the factor do sound spectacular.
We’re not anticipating to see any updates to the Mac or iPad line ups in September – however it’s solely doubtless that Apple will observe current type and schedule one other occasion in October or November to focus on its tablets and computer systems. The iPad Professional is rumoured to be getting a brand new design and OLED show, whereas the MacBook Professional is more likely to be the primary to get pleasure from the brand new M3 chip.
