Apple’s eagerly awaited iPhone launch event has been officially slated for September 12, confirming weeks of speculation.
The event will be available for streaming on Apple’s website and the Apple TV streaming service, maintaining their tradition.
Anticipations are running high for the unveiling of not just one, but a quartet of iPhones: the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max.
This year, there’s even a possibility that the Pro Max might carry the moniker “iPhone 15 Ultra,” though no official word on this yet.
In addition to the iPhones, there’s buzz about the potential introduction of the Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Watch Series 9 at the event.
Dubbed “Wonderlust,” Apple’s chosen event tagline is a creative play on “wanderlust,” which typically denotes a strong desire to travel.
Within Apple’s context, it seems to evoke a fervent longing to be enthralled and captivated. This ambiguity aligns seamlessly with Apple’s enigmatic strategy, leaving us with much to ponder.
In adherence to the recent EU legislation, all four of the upcoming iPhones will be outfitted with USB-C ports. Notably, whispers are circulating that the iPhone 15 Pro Max/Ultra might introduce an innovative periscope zoom camera to Apple’s device lineup, marking a pioneering leap.
The Pro models are set to ditch the stainless steel frame in favor of titanium, signaling a notable shift. The physical mute switch is also rumored to be replaced by a versatile “Action button,” a change applicable across the series. Moreover, the inclusion of the Dynamic Island feature is expected across all models.
Apple might not stop at iPhones; there’s speculation that they could overhaul the AirPods range by integrating USB-C ports, a move likely to be well-received by users.
