Beyond the Apple Watch 8 and the iPhone 14
The ‘Far Out’ event, which Apple will conduct on September 7 and which is expected to feature the iPhone 14 range among many other new items, is the company’s upcoming major event.
Yes, throughout the course of around 90 minutes, there will be a buffet of new goods, Tim Cook bragging about Apple’s accomplishments (likely including how much money it has paid developers over the years), and general updates on where Apple stands on matters like environmental concerns.
What about information on how to view the Apple Far Out event yourself, when it actually starts, and what you can actually anticipate seeing there as well?
It’s anticipated to be a crowded expo with everything from smartphones to wearables and beyond, so keep reading for all the details you need to make sure you don’t miss out.
When does Apple’s Far Out event start? Does it include the UK and Australia?
The Apple Far Out event is scheduled to begin on September 7 at 10 a.m. PDT, 1 p.m. ET, and 6 p.m. BST; for those in Australia’s AEST time zone, that is 3 a.m. on September 8.
So, while it may not be the most social time for Australians, it is the perfect time for a post-work tune in if you live in the UK.
Given that we anticipate seeing up to eight new gadgets, it will undoubtedly be near to the maximum duration of one to two hours.
So be sure to prepare some tasty snacks and a variety of hydration alternatives before you settle down, and remember those who will be live blogging the whole event.
How to watch Apple’s September Far Out event
It will be simple for you to view Apple’s Far Out event. The simplest method is to just visit YouTube, since Apple will be live-streaming the event there.
Fortunately, the YouTube live stream URL for this is already up, so you can bookmark it and set a reminder.
You don’t even need to leave this website to view the event; the YouTube video is embedded below to make things even simpler.
As well as on Apple’s website, which currently has a page up for the event, you can watch the event on the Apple TV app, which doesn’t yet have a page, or on the Apple Developer app, which is probably the most specialised method to view it.
Remember that this event is now open to everyone, unlike previous years when it was only accessible to those using Apple devices with the Safari browser. There is now no excuse not to watch it.
What to anticipate at Apple’s Far Out presentation in September
This final model, which is rumoured to essentially be an iPhone 14 with a bigger 6.7-inch screen, is expected to replace the iPhone 14 small.
According to rumours, the majority of the improvements will only apply to the Pro models. They include a new 48MP main camera, a screen cutout rather than a notch, and a more potent chipset. However, it’s possible that the majority or all iPhone 14 models will have a bigger battery than their forerunners.
The Apple Watch 8, Apple Watch SE 2, and an Apple Watch Pro are some items we anticipate seeing. According to leaks, the SE 2 may just receive a new processor, but the Apple Watch 8 may also receive some new features.
The Apple Watch 8 Pro may have the same same functionality as the Apple Watch 8, but with a larger screen and battery, as well as a more robust and high-end design, which includes a titanium casing.
But that’s not all; other sources claim that Apple will also be revealing the AirPods Pro 2, which will reportedly have more active noise cancellation and perhaps compatibility for hi-res audio, but there presumably won’t be many significant changes to the original AirPods Pro’s appearance.
Other products, like the HomePod 2 or AirPods 4, could still be announced, but that seems less and less likely right now. If something new in the HomePod universe were to appear, it would probably be a new HomePod tiny as that has shown to be more useful.
Beyond hardware, iOS 16 will likely also debut in its final form (along with the always-on display that will permeate the iPhone 14 Pro line-up), while it is certain that iPadOS 16 will arrive a little later.
What Apple’s Far Out event probably won’t include
At Apple’s Far Out presentation, a lot is anticipated, but there are also a few high-profile products that we’re not anticipating to see.
Despite the fact that an iPad Pro (2022) and new iPad (2022) are both most likely to release shortly, new iPads are foremost among these.
That’s because current rumours indicate that they will arrive at a different event in October, which may make sense given that Wednesday’s launch already seems like it might be too full.
If Mark Gurman, a writer and leaker with a strong track record for Apple intelligence, is to be trusted, these iPads may debut with a new Mac Mini, new Mac Pro, and a new MacBook Pro.
The long-rumored Apple VR headgear is unlikely to be unveiled at either event; 2023 seems more plausible, though you never know. It may at least be hinted this year.
The iPhone SE 4 and the following iPad mini are likely to arrive after 2023, and maybe even later in the case of the SE 4.
