Now for sure. iPhone 14 presentation, as it was reported a week ago, will be held on September 7th. Just minutes ago, Apple announced its first fall event of the year. It will be held under the slogan Far Out, which can be translated into Russian as “Out of reach”. What exactly they wanted to say in Cupertino, as usual, we will find out only after the presentation. But we suggest something to me that in this way Apple hints to us that even with the old iron iPhone 14 it will be very even nothing.
For the first time in two years presentation of the new iPhone will be held in person, and not in the format of a pre-prepared recording, as required by the anti-COVID restrictions. Therefore, journalists from thematic publications, fans and other eminent guests will be able to visit it. As before the pandemic, the event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in California Apple campus.
What Apple will present on September 7
It’s obvious that Apple presentation on September 7 will be quite rich in new items. If in previous years the company was limited to the release of mainly basic products for itself, then this event will most likely be expanded by the announcement of something else. Here is an approximate list of all devices that can be shown to us at the event:
- iPhone 14
- iPhone 14 Max (Plus)
- iPhone 14 Pro
- iPhone 14 Pro Max
- Apple Watch Series 8
- Apple Watch SE 2
- Apple Watch Pro (Explorer Edition)
- AirPods Pro 2
- iPad 2022 (10.2″)
- Apple TV6
- HomePod mini 2
What will be the iPhone 14
As you can see, the upcoming news are arranged in descending order of their probability of being announced. If there is any doubt that they will show us new iPhones and smart watches, almost none as well AirPods Pro 2 release generation, although it looks quite likely, it raises some questions, then a new tablet, a TV set-top box and a smart speaker may perhaps be postponed until more appropriate times.
We already know almost everything about the iPhone 14. Two base models – iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max – will receive design and processor from iPhone 13. Despite this, their RAM is likely to grow from 4 to 6 GB, and the charging power can increase from 15 to 25-30 watts. Otherwise, no significant changes are expected. Even Always On Display will not be brought.
iPhone 14 Pro – price and specifications
But iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max waiting for a more significant upgrade. Here is a list of the main innovations that they will be able to boast of:
- New design of the front panel without bangs (instead of it there will be a double cutout for the front camera and face recognition sensors);
- Slightly increased capacity of built-in batteries;
- Support for Always-On Display mode (refresh rate reduction to 1 Hz);
- The main camera is periscope type;
- Increased charging speed (power 25-30W versus 15W for iPhone 13).
Because of this (including) the cost, the price of the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will increase by about 10% and amount to $1,099 and $1,199, respectively. We have already talked about the reasons for the rise in price of new products – if you are interested, you can read about it in a separate article. There is a lot of useful information there that will give an understanding of what is generally happening with smartphone prices.
What will be the Apple Watch Series 8
Concerning Apple Watch, then about Series 8 not as much is known as one would like. Rumor has it that Apple has once again moved the redesign of smartwatches, and the processor that they are equipped with will remain last year. In general, this is the situation. But on the other hand, in order not to disappoint the consumer, it was decided to release a protected version, which will be called either Apple Watch Proor Apple Watch Explorer Edition.
Protected version of Apple Watch will receive a damage-resistant case, official permission for use under water and, possibly, improved autonomy. It is possible that the watch will simply be equipped with a shockproof casing by analogy with the G-Shock, but this is still only guesswork. Moreover, the G-shock case is not completely sealed, which means that this equipment option is hardly 100% suitable for Apple.
AirPods Pro 2 – what is known
About AirPods Pro 2 even less is known. Despite the fact that at first it was claimed that the new headphones will receive Lossless support (which we never believed because of the understanding of the technical features of high-resolution sound reproduction), as well as heart rate sensors and a pedometer, as a result, judging by the latest data, none of this new product shines.
Implement in headphones of this type Lossless music support it was impossible not even because of problems with the signal bandwidth, but because of small batteries that simply could not pull out the transfer of such a volume of data. But in the appearance of a pedometer and a heart rate monitor, I believed it willingly. However, according to authoritative sources, this will not happen in the coming years.
