Enhancements on the standard iPhone 14 models reportedly include the addition of more RAM, longer-lasting batteries and a better selfie camera with autofocus. Meanwhile, the Pro models are expected to feature a new design that trades away Apple’s signature display notch for a Samsung-style hole-punch front camera cutout. Additionally, the Pro variants will reportedly feature a new 48-megapixel main camera and thinner display bezels. They’re also expected to be the only models to ship with Apple’s next-generation A16 chip.
Apple has officially started sending out invitations for its next hardware announcement. On September 7th, a live broadcast from Apple Park will begin at 1 PM ET to reveal what the business has been working on for the past year. You can interpret the phrase “Far out” on the invitation however you choose. Four new iPhone models are anticipated to be unveiled by the firm at the event. The majority of reports in the run-up to today’s announcement indicated that the 2022 iPhone lineup would include a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. Due to the iPhone 12 mini’s underwhelming sales, Apple is apparently not going to release a new “small” model this year.
Alongside new iPhone models, Apple is also likely to refresh its entire wearable lineup. According to reports from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the Apple Watch Series 8 will include a new “Pro” model that will feature a larger screen than its siblings and a more durable titanium case. It’s also expected to feature a bigger battery that could allow the wearable to go multiple days on a single charger. The entire Series 8 lineup is also expected to include a new body temperature sensor that could notify you when you’re running a fever. Lastly, a new set of AirPods Pro are probably a safe bet given the current ones are almost three years old.
Apple is not expected to announce Mac computers on September 7th. As it’s done recently, the company is likely to hold a second event later this year. Whatever Apple plans to share on September 7th, you can expect comprehensive coverage from Engadget before, during and after the event.
