Apple Event Confirmed As The iPhone 14 launches On September 7
For its latest iPhone debut, apple has now set a date. The new device which is now expected to be known as the iPhone 14 and include an always on display will be unveiled on September 7 at 10 am PT.
All rumors now suggest that the new iPhone lineup will axe the Mini in favor of a new max model thus joining the iPhone 14 pro and iPhone 14 pro max thereby potentially increasing the price of the device by up to $100 over last year’s device. It is also reported that apple have plans to ditch the iPhone’s 14’s notch in favor of a hole and pill shaped front camera at least for its pro models.
Apple also may use the event to unveil its watch Series 8 in addition to the iPhone 14 which will look very much similar to last year’s model but may have more health features such as a fever sensor as well as improved durability strength.
Apple Has Invited Press to Its Event
The tech giant, Apple, also has invited the press to its Apple Park headquarters in California for the main event, although it’ll also offer a Livestream on its website Apple.com and other streaming services and platforms. And as is typical, Apple didn’t say much in regards to its invitation about its upcoming iPhone event.
What the Apple Logo in the Invitation Means
The invitation shows an Apple logo that is set in a night sky, thus suggesting potential camera improvements or last year’s rumored satellite emergency calling. The image looks very much like something we might see from the James Webb Space Telescope, whose stunning photos have already started changing how we see the cosmos since first being released earlier this summer. Apple in its announcement included the teaser words “Far out.”
How the iPhone 14 And Apple Watch 8 May Help Apple
The new feature of the iPhone 14 and the Apple Watch 8 may help the company stand out from other tech companies such as Samsung and other device makers during what it expected to be heightened competition this year. People already have been cutting back on the purchases of tech devices thereby leading to surprisingly low sales reports from chip-making company Intel as well as sudden ad business shortfalls for Alphabet, Google’s parent company, and Meta, Facebook’s parent company, and they are not all alone in this.
Our collective confidence in the economy has dipped tremendously, all thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic all mixed up with the continual inflation and a looming recession. One survey from the University of Michigan has found out that consumer sentiment is at its lowest point in at least 70 years.
Apple Will Have to Fight Even Harder to Win New iPhone Owners Over
That being said means that Apple will have to fight even harder to win new iPhone owners over. Samsung, for its own part, made the job of Apple a little easier by announcing its flagship Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 at their standard prices of $1,800 and $1,000, respectively, in the early parts of this month. Samsung also raised the prices of its Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro by $30 apiece.
Apple so far isn’t acting worried for the time being. Over the past couple of years, Apple has notched its biggest revenue and profits each holiday shopping season, given largely on the popularity of 2021’s iPhone 13 and 2020’s iPhone 12.
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple has previously cited the advanced cameras, long battery life and well-regarded software as reasons people have continued to opt for iPhones. But he also said that 5G, which is the super-fast wireless technology Apple began using two years ago, is likely to draw more people to upgrade.
Apple’s CEO Speaking To Investors on A Conference Call Last Month
When speaking to investors on a conference call last month, he said “5G has been an accelerant.” He also added that although the technology is spreading through some places such as China, the US, and the EU, other parts of the globe have not yet started making use of it as much. And as 5G expands, he said “I think there’s reason to be optimistic.”
And while the iPhone will be a very important product that we will see at Apple’s event later this year and what most people will focus their attention on, the company also is expected to have other devices on the show and they include new Mac computers with upgraded chips and new iPads.
