Apple’s September event invitation.
Apple just announced it will hold a press event on September 7 at 1 p.m. ET where it is expected to announce the new iPhones.
The launch event will be streamed on Apple’s website. Apple has held pre-recorded virtual launch events since the start of the Covid pandemic in 2020. Apple is also inviting people to watch the launch at its campus in Cupertino, California.
Apple may also announce new Apple Watch and AirPods models at the event. The company is said to also prepare new Mac and iPad models, but they are sometimes announced at a separate event in October.
Apple is expected to release four new iPhone models that will likely be called the iPhone 14. The new devices will feature improved cameras, and the more expensive versions of the iPhone 14 Pro may feature a small pill-shaped cutout. at the top of the device screen, compared to the “notch” that current iPhones have and will include an always-on display.
Analysts will be closely monitoring the prices of Apple’s new product line to see if the company raises prices during times of volatile supply chains and high inflation.
Apple may also announce new Apple Watch models, likely to be called Series 8. Bloomberg said in July that Apple is also planning to release a more expensive and rugged “professional” version. Reports suggest that Apple may include a body temperature sensor in this year’s models for sleep and fertility monitoring.
Apple also typically releases a new version of iOS for iPhones after its September event. This year, the software includes the ability to customize the phone’s lock screen and the ability to cancel or edit iMessages.
