What to anticipate: new Apple Watch models, the iPhone 14 series, and more
Apple's annual September event is always all about iPhones and this year will be no different. The highlight of the event will be the iPhone 14 series. Apple is likely to unveil four new models of the iPhone 14. There are speculations that the iPhone mini might be abandoned by Apple for good. It is expected that the iPhone mini will be replaced by a 'Max' variant of the iPhone 14. The 'Max' variant is rumored to have a larger display - 6.7 inches - compared to the iPhone 14's 6.1-inch display.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will still be part of the lineup. Rumor has it that Apple could keep an all-new processor - the A16 Bionic - just for the Pro series with the iPhone 14. This seems unlikely, as the biggest USP of the 'vanilla' iPhone has always been that it is powered by the same processor as the Pro variants. As always, Apple is keeping a low profile, so we will not get clarity until the new iPhones see the light of day.
Two new models of the Watch are also expected on September 7. According to rumors, the Watch Series 8 will also get a "Pro" variant - a rugged smartwatch - in addition to the normal variant. The Apple Watch Series 8 is not expected to have a major redesign, but it will bring a number of new health and fitness features.
Apple is also expected to announce the date for the launch of iOS 16 - the next major software update for iPhones.
