Yesterday, Apple surprised us with the announcement of the iPhone event for 2022. This year, it looks to be taking place in person, but whether or not it will be a return to keynotes of old, or a hybrid event like WWDC 2022 remains to be seen. Regardless, the event is taking place on Wednesday 7th September at 10am PT (6pm BST).
Like the last many September Apple events, we can expect the new iPhone to be announced. This year, the iPhone 14 models are expected to launch, with a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max and a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, as well as a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. As you can see from this predicted lineup, the iPhone 14 mini is missing – instead this time around, Apple seems to be going all in on larger devices.
One rumour which has been pretty consistent is that the notch is going away with the iPhone 14 devices, instead opting for a pill-shaped cutout and hole-punch cutout. Apparently the new devices will also feature an always on display and a new 48MP camera, as well as other more predictable things.
Regarding the chips used this year, things could look a bit different. Last year, Apple used the same A15 chip on all the phones, from the base iPhone 13 mini, all the way up to the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Even the iPad mini was boosted with the brand new chip last year. However, the base iPhone 14 models are rumoured to stick with the A15 chips from last year, with the Pro devices getting the newer A16 chips instead.
Also expected at the event is a brand new Apple Watch Series 8 and an Apple Watch Pro which could be geared towards users who need a much more durable device, such as hikers and mountain climbers.
Apple will be streaming the event live on YouTube on 7th September, for those not able to watch live at that time we will be live tweeting the event from our @live_interface Twitter account as well as full coverage here at theinterface.uk once the event has wrapped up.
