Apple reportedly plans iPhone and Apple Watch event for September 7th,

New chips, new cameras, and the death of the iPhone mini are all possibilities.

Death, taxes, and new iPhones in September are the only three things that are certain in life. According to Mark Gorman of Bloomberg, this year’s iPhone event will take place on September 7th.

Gorman claims that the 5.4-inch small display size that Apple has marketed for the past two generations will be eliminated from the non-pro iPhone 14 lineup. Instead, a large-screen 6.7-inch variant will join the existing 6.1-inch model, mirroring the display size of the current iPhone Pro Max model. But these phones will also maintain the use of the existing Apple A15 Bionic CPU and share the iPhone 13’s exterior design.

The iPhone 14 Pro will reportedly be more exciting, replacing the current camera notch with a pair of pinhole cutouts for the front-facing camera and Face ID scanner; many Android phones have already switched to similar pinhole cutouts to save screen space. The Pro phones will also reportedly get a faster chip and an even-larger three-lens camera assembly anchored by a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera plus 12-megapixel ultra-wide and telephoto cameras.

Apple also allegedly plans to introduce new Apple Watches. The Series 8 watches are said to include a standard model that looks similar to the current Series 7, plus a long-rumored larger and more “rugged” titanium model with more battery life and additional fitness tracking features.

The basic Apple Watch SE is also supposedly due to receive a faster chip—the current SE uses an Apple S5, and a new one could use an S6, S7, or some newer as-yet unannounced chip. This new SE model will hopefully mean the end of the long-lived Apple Watch Series 3, which the company still sells even though it won’t be receiving the watches’ 9 update this fall.

A September 7th announcement for the new iPhones and watches probably means at least some new devices will be available to buy toward the middle of the month, roughly coinciding with the release of iOS 16—Gorman says that Apple Store employees have been told to prepare for a September 16th launch.

Apple often holds an iPad- and Mac-focused event in October to complement the September event, which is when we’d expect to see updates to those products and the release of macOS Ventura and the reportedly delayed iPad OS 16. Gorman predicts we’ll finally see a USB-C version of the low-end iPad, new M2-based iPad Pros, and updated Mac mini and MacBook Pro models before the end of the year.
