Apple has started preparations for its upcoming September 12 iPhone-centric event
As the leaves begin to change and the air turns crisper, the tech world braces itself for one of the most anticipated events of the year: Apple’s September iPhone event. This annual affair has become a cornerstone of the tech industry, marked by its unveilings of cutting-edge devices and groundbreaking innovations. The September iPhone 15 event, held on 9/12 at 10 a.m. PT.
What to expect from the iPhone 15 event
Obviously, new iPhones! Apple will likely unveil the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max on that day. Arguably, the biggest change in these devices could be the retirement of the Lightning port in favor of USB Type-C. Additionally, the company could be replacing the mute switch with a customizable Action button, similar to that on the Apple Watch Ultra. Furthermore, we expect the tech giant to drop the stainless steel frame on the Pro models in favor of titanium.
And speaking of Apple Watches, we expect the company to launch the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. The former will likely be an incremental upgrade that focuses on the chipset and performance. Meanwhile, the rugged wearable’s highlight could be a new, darker finish option.
Putting the iPhones and Apple Watches aside, the company could also be giving the AirPods Pro 2 a minor upgrade by ditching the Lightning port and adopting USB-C. Apart from that, we don’t expect Apple to introduce any major improvements in this department, as that typically takes it a few years.
Lastly, Apple will likely be announcing the release date of iOS 17 and watchOS 10, following three months of beta testing with developers and enthusiasts. It’ll probably seed the Release Candidate (RC) versions of these operating systems on that day, after the event concludes.
