Before the presentation of Apple, which was called Far Out, there are only a few hours left. It will take place at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino and will be streamed online on the company’s official website and YouTube channel. The event, in which the iPhone 14 smartphones, as well as other hardware and software innovations of the IT giant, will be presented to the general public, will begin at 20:00 Moscow time.
The main event of the upcoming event will be the announcement of the new iPhone 14 smartphones, information about which has already been collected a lot as the presentation approaches. The base iPhone 14 probably won’t be the star of the show, as most of the new features will only be available on the more advanced iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The new items will receive the Always-On Display function:
It is expected that the new items will receive the Always-On Display function (it has been present on Android smartphones for many years). In addition, the flagship models will receive a new 48-megapixel main camera with a large sensor, as well as a screen with a pair of cutouts in the upper part instead of the notorious “bangs”. According to rumors, separate cutouts are provided for the front camera and Face ID sensors.
The hardware basis of the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max should be the new Apple A16 Bionic processor. Two new body color options are expected: blue and dark purple. Apple’s new smartphones are rumored to support up to 30W fast charging, with storage starting at 256GB (last year’s 13 Pro and Pro Max models shipped with 128GB of storage). Probably the appearance of a more capacious battery.
At the same time, the standard version of this smartphone is unlikely to please with a large number of major changes. The most notable of these may be the arrival of a larger 6.7-inch display in the iPhone 14 Max (or Plus). According to reputable analysts, only the flagship iPhone 14 Pro models will be equipped with the new A16 processor, while the basic versions will remain with last year’s A15.
Another major addition could be satellite connectivity, a feature that was rumored even before the iPhone 13 was unveiled last year. In February, Globalstar purchased 17 new satellites “to provide continuous satellite service to a potential customer” that some speculate maybe Apple.
Together with the iPhone 14, the presentation of new models of smart watches Apple Watch Series 8, Watch SE, and Watch Pro is expected at the upcoming event. The latter is a more secure version of the smartwatch, which is aimed at people involved in extreme sports.
According to the source, the new S8 processor will be the hardware basis of the Apple Watch Series 8 smartwatch, which will provide a slight increase in performance compared to the previous generation’s chip. The function of measuring blood pressure will probably not be added, but the device may receive a sensor for measuring the user’s body temperature.
The new Apple Watch SE will replace the budget Watch Series 3 and will likely feature the same S8 processor as the Watch Series 8. The current 2020 Watch SE uses the S5 chip. Other significant changes in the updated version of Watch SE are not expected.
The Watch Pro will boast a flat-edge display:
As for the “professional” and more expensive Watch Pro model, it can get a large almost 2-inch display protected from mechanical damage. According to some reports, the Watch Pro will boast a flat-edge display and a 47mm case, which is larger than the Watch Series 7, which comes in 41mm and 45mm versions. It is possible that this version of the watch will receive support for satellite communications, but even without it, the predicted cost of the Watch Pro is in the range of $900 to $999.
Even as part of the presentation, Apple may introduce a new generation of AirPods Pro wireless headphones, which have not been updated since its launch in 2019. Now, almost three years later, users can look forward to the AirPods Pro 2. The headphones are expected to receive an updated design and some features based on built-in sensors for tracking user movements.
AirPods Pro 2 will receive support for the Apple Lossless Audio Codec:
It is highly likely that AirPods Pro 2 will receive support for the Apple Lossless Audio Codec (lossless compression format). It is possible that Apple will approach the issue of improving sound quality in a different way: developers can add support for Bluetooth 5.2, which uses a new codec that provides more efficient sound transmission, thereby improving sound quality. The headphone case can be equipped with a small speaker that will make sounds when the user searches for the headphones using the Find My app.
Together with the hardware updates, Apple will introduce the final version of iOS 16, which is expected to begin distribution a week after today’s presentation. This version of the software platform will receive several new features, including the ability to edit and unsend messages, as well as a customizable lock screen. In addition to iOS 16, developers will present the final version of WatchOS 9, the software platform for their smartwatches.
It seems that Apple intends to return to its previous schedule for the introduction of new products, which the company followed before the coronavirus pandemic. This means that after today’s presentation, users can expect a separate event in October, in which developers will introduce new iPods and Mac computers. Apple is expected to release a new iPad Pro with the M2 chip this year, as well as an entry-level iPad with the A14 processor. Three computers can also be attached: Mac Mini, Mac Pro, and MacBook Pro based on the M2 chip. Around the same time, the new iPadOS and macOS Ventura should arrive. As for the Apple virtual reality headset, which has been rumored for a long time, it is hardly worth waiting for its presentation this year.
