The rumor mill has been running wild for a while now… Tech-savvy iPhone hunters everywhere are scouring every corner of the web for every new detail about Apple’s upcoming products. But tonight, the wait is coming to an end.
At 1am AEST (sorry Australians!), the tech giant is about to lift the veil on its new devices. That’s what you can expect to see at their presentation for the Worldwide Developers Conference (if you decide to stick around!)
One thing to keep in mind before diving into this overview is to take everything with a grain of salt. While some expectations from tonight’s event might be a little more reliable than others (sure bet the iPhone 14 will be here, right?), they’re all based on speculation and claims. from industry specialists who have yet to be confirmed by the company itself. All right, let’s dive in now!
Apple’s latest flagships are expected to take center stage at the event. The American company will follow its own trend by launching different models for its line of 14 phones, with a regular device, Pro and Pro Max.
However, according to a recent article by Forbes, it is possible that the three models will not be released simultaneously, which would be a first for the company. Forbes cites a number of people with deep industry knowledge who point out that several complications with the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max’s front camera pushed its launch date by about a month.
When it comes to the looks of the devices, rumors say that not much will change with the 14 itself compared to its predecessor, but the 14 Pro and Pro Max models are expected to have some improvements including their larger screen and their price hike! Reports indicate that the iPhone 14 Pro will cost over $300 more than the 13 model. Ouch!
Apple will of course bring new updates to its operating system, introducing its latest version, iOS 16. According to the Apple specialist Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the new system will come with “new Apple apps”, although it’s not clear whether that means new apps or a coat of paint for existing ones. There is also a good chance that widgets will appear.
There have been many rumors that iOS 16 may also introduce the highly sought after “always on” characteristic. For iPadOS 16, there are rumors of new multitasking features that could make the devices easier to use and more reminiscent of a desktop PC.
Watch Series 8
Regarding their new series of digital wristwatches, macrumeurs points out that Apple is about to change its design to create smoother flat edges, like those of the iPhone 13. Apparently there will be three watch sizes instead of the usual two, with the company adding an even bigger option large at their 41mm and 45mm Choice.
As for the system functions, the new wearable device is expected to come with even more features to monitor your health, such as temperature sensor, health apnea detector, car and improvements to its atrial fibrillation function that will help calculate the “burden”. The internal chip will also be upgraded to an S8 to make it faster and more efficient.
Apparently the new 13-inch Macbook Airs will come with two USB-C ports and MagSafe charging capabilities, while retaining its TouchID technology. They’ll also come in two new colors – other than the gold and silver they’re already available in – with the addition of a dark blue and rose gold option.
They won’t be available for a while though, as reports indicate that the company will launch the new little Macs a bit later in the year (sometimes in Q3) as production gets pushed back due to COVID and shortages. world of chips.
What else can we expect to see?
Besides a major focus on their key products and services, it’s a safe bet that Apple will be keen to show the fruits of its own investments in the emerging world of new technologies, such as VR, AR and potentially even the Metaverse. .
Rumor has it (it’s becoming a recurring theme!) that the company will unveil its new mixed reality device, which could be similar to what Meta has recently (sort of) exhibited.
Other than that, we can expect endorsements and cameos from other top companies and celebrities. This is an Apple event, after all…
