To the surprise of many, Apple has confirmed the date for their September event two weeks early. In comparison to the previous two September event invites, which were released a week before the event day.
This Apple event is confirmed to be on September 7, as it has been rumored over the last couple of weeks — however, many fans and experts expected Apple to announce this date in the week of the 29th.
Will The Event Be In-Person, Hybrid, Or Video?
The two-week notice could be a hint that this event will be in-person or at least hybrid as the recently concluded WWDC.
Releasing invites for the event two weeks earlier allows the invited guests to plan their trips to Cupertino, where Apple will be holding the event.
The guests, who mainly include technology media personalities, will get a chance to have a brief hands-on experience with the announced hardware products in the iconic Steve Jobs theatre.
What To Expect At The September 7 Apple Event?
Speaking of hardware products, we expect Apple to make a couple of announcements at this event, including the iPhone 14:
- The iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to come with some standout features that may include the biggest camera upgrade the iPhone has received since the iPhone 6S generation.
- These changes may include a larger 50 or 48MP primary sensor and an upgraded selfie camera with autofocus support.
- The phone is also expected to have an i-shaped cutout instead of the huge notch that has been around since the iPhone X.
- There are also rumors suggesting that all the iPhone 14 models could support satellite connectivity that will be used to make emergency calls or send texts while in areas that don’t have networks.
Besides the iPhone 14, Apple is expected to announce the Apple Watch Series 8, the SE, and the very first version of an Apple Pro watch.
We could also see some surprise announcements, including the gen 2 Air Pods Pro and the budget iPad. Apple may also announce a few changes/additions to their services, including Music, iCloud, Apple TV+, and more.
