Apple is aiming for its next product launch event on September 7, according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. The company usually hosts a big event in the first half of September, and now we have a very likely date to circle on the calendar. As with the other events that have taken place during the COVID-19 pandemic, this event is planned to be streamed online, Gurman reports.
Rumor has it that Apple will announce the iPhone 14 lineup at the show, which is expected to consist of: the base iPhone 14, a new large-screen iPhone 14, an iPhone 14 Pro, and an iPhone 14 Pro Max. . The Pro phones may be getting some of the flashier upgrades, as they’re rumored to lose the notch in favor of a pill-shaped punch cutout, get an always-on screen, and have the next-generation A-series processor. In recent years, the iPhones unveiled at the event went on sale shortly after — Gurman reports that store associates have been asked to prepare for some sort of September 16 launch — so if you’re looking for an upgrade, you may want to get your wallet ready.
At the event, Apple would also announce updates to the Apple Watch, including a new, more rugged model and a revised Apple Watch SE. The company is also reportedly working on the next generation of the AirPods Pro, which could come with lossless audio support, a new entry-level iPad that could ditch the headphone jack, and more, so there are a lot of potential products that Apple could may reveal at the upcoming event.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
