According to respected Apple expert Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, Apple will have a launch event for its iPhone 14 line on Sept. 7.
According to sources, the event will also involve the introduction of three Apple Watch versions and the likelihood of new iPads and Macs. In addition to the date, Apple retailers should have been warned to prepare for additional product releases on Sept. 16. New Apple products typically go on sale approximately a week after their initial unveiling.
The new iPhones are believed to sport a revised lock screen paired with a new always-on-display in the next iPhone 14 Pro versions, as initially speculated in May.
What can users expect?
The iPhone 14 lineup is rumored to have four variants, two regular and two pro. The standard iPhones will likely come in 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch sizes, with Apple discontinuing its previous 5.4-inch “mini” version.
The 6.7-inch variant will mark the first time Apple sells a standard iPhone with such a large display. The standard versions are also believed to use Apple’s A15 processor, which debuted with the iPhone 13 last year.
More substantial updates are likely in Apple’s iPhone 14 Pro lineup.
Cameras and watches
The cameras on the Pro versions are likely to be enhanced, with a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera and 12-megapixel ultra-wide and telephoto sensors. Gurman expects that smartphones will also improve video recording and battery life.
Apple Series 8 watches are rumored to have additional capabilities such as women’s health tracking and a body-temperature sensor. While the ordinary look is likely to appear identical to the predecessor, the new Pro model is said to appeal to athletic users due to its more prominent display, more rigid titanium shell, additional fitness tracking functions, and longer battery life.
A third model, dubbed the Apple Watch SE, is believed to be less expensive and have a quicker processor than previous Apple offerings.
