Apple is “far out” for its upcoming events as it prepares to announce what’s next for its various product lines. This includes the iPhone, but could extend beyond that to include some of the tech giant’s other products and services.
Apple’s ‘Far Out’ event will be broadcast Wednesday, September 7, 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ETLet’s take a closer look at what to expect in this presentation.
What to expect from the Apple ‘Far Out’ September 7 event
The most obvious item on the agenda is the next line of iPhones. Enough time has passed for Apple to announce the iPhone 14 series.It’s speculated that the biggest changes will be in the top-tier iPhone 14 Pro, with possible hardware improvements and a new design. Leaks to sites like 9to5Mac seem to indicate that the latest Pro will include exciting colors like purple, navy blue, gold, graphite and silver.
Other than the new color, don’t expect too many changes with the iPhone 14 compared to the new iPhone 13.

Rumors of a new Apple Watch are also swirling. This includes the new standard version and the new SE edition. However, Bloomberg’s speculation is that the company’s first Apple Watch Pro will be unveiled.
There are no details on what the Apple Watch Pro will look like or how it will differ from the standard version of the product. expect to
Note that watchOS 9 was announced at WWDC 22 in the September release window. A more specific rollout date will be announced when the new Apple Watch is announced. Speaking of big updates…
iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 rollout dates
One of the major highlights of WWDC 22 was the launch of major features for both iOS 16 and iPad OS 16. Above all, iOS 16 will most likely have a release date, which will be shortly after the release of new iPhone hardware. iOS 16 is currently in its eighth beta.
It’s entirely unclear whether the iPad will be featured in this presentation, so the iPadOS 16 date may not be on the agenda. A recent TechCrunch report showing a slow rollout of iPadOS 16 is gaining even more momentum. Still, Apple has indicated it’s ready to roll out by the end of the year, but we’ll have to wait until next week for an announcement.
AirPods Pro 2
Note that in recent months, retailers have heavily discounted Apple’s Airpods. Speculation has it that a new line of wireless earbuds could be coming. In fact, 9to5Mac has heard that his new AirPods Pro model will support the next version of his H1 chip and may support Bluetooth 5.2.
There’s no need to look for anything new when it comes to design, but if new AirPods are on the agenda next week, expect Apple touting improved quality in both music and voice calls.
Apple has a lot to say at next week’s “Far Out” event.Recent reports and leaks seem to have some clues that it’s likely to come true, but the only way to know for sure is to watch the event. Wednesday, September 7, 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ETWe’ll be watching the event along with everyone else and reporting major news.
