What to count on, from iPhone 15 to Apple Watch 9
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 era of Apple’s smartphone is all however a given, the corporate by no means makes use of an occasion to reveal only one product. From iPads to Apple Watches, there’ll doubtless be heaps on present alongside the primary occasion.
As ever, rumours in regards to the subsequent variations of Apple’s, properly, all the pieces, have been doing the rounds for the previous couple of months. And like yearly, we now have a fairly stable concept of what to count on from the occasion – though there’s each likelihood 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 may have the opportunity to 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 proclaims 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 feels 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 legislation compelled its hand. The complete iPhone 15 line up is rumoured to be getting USB-C, which might permit 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 function a titanium physique – one thing the occasion invite itself may be hinting at. We’re additionally anticipating smaller bezels than ever, and elevated storage – going all the best way up to 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, try our major 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 alleged to be retaining the identical design that is hung round because the Collection 7, but it surely might function, 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 possibility is coming, so there’s that.
Talking of latest 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 use the title ‘AirPods Professional 3’ right here, because the rumoured replace is a significantly minor one. In accordance to Apple leaker Mark Gurman (under), the AirPods Professional case is about to be up to date to function USB-C charging. If Lightning is being changed for the iPhone 15, it is sensible 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 reveal on 12 September precisely once they’ll be obtainable to obtain – doubtless between 13 – 21 September.
iOS 17 brings updates together with interactive widgets and a brand new Standby Mode that shows info when the telephone is charging in a panorama orientation. WatchOS 10, in the meantime, guarantees the largest overhaul the Apple Watch UI has seen, with just about each app redesigned to reap the benefits of the total 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 in all probability will not dedicate a ton of time to the brand new gadget, it will in all probability 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 – but it surely’s totally doubtless that Apple will comply with current kind and schedule one other occasion in October or November to consider 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 probably going to be the primary to get pleasure from the brand new M3 chip.
