The rumors were right as usual. Apple’s next iPhone event is scheduled for September 12. The firm just sent out invites for the event, once again scheduled for its Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino. The invite features a Thanos snap-like graphic (spoilers), accompanied by the word “Wonderlust” [sic].
The iPhone 15 will almost certainly be the centerpiece for the big show. Given the big deal it made for the iPhone X, it seems like the new version of the handset could bring a big upgrade to the line. Given how the overall market has been trending, a much needed injection of excitement could go a long way. Likely not a foldable-level of excitement, but excitement, nonetheless.
Speaking of legislation, Apple also recently threw its weight behind a right to repair bill currently making its way through California state legislation. A recent shift toward supporting self-repair could find the company touting the new phone’s repairability. It would be a massive shift in direction from the company’s historical stance, but stranger things have certainly happened. Other tipped rumors include slimmer bezels and the addition of the Dynamic Island across the line.
The Apple Watch Series 9 is also a slam dunk for the show. We haven’t seen a ton in the way of rumors, though reports have pointed toward the inclusion of the A15 Bionic chip, along with a new pink addition. Barbie-branding, anyone? Pink is apparently on the list with iPhone 15 colors, as well, along with new blue and gray versions.
We expect the public versions of the latest iOS, macOS and watchOs to drop at the same time. This will also be Apple’s second major opportunity to show off the Vision Pro, ahead of its launch early next year. We’ll likely be getting a better look at some of the content arriving for the “spatial computing” headset, along with additional information on Apple’s biggest gambit in a decade.
