Apple’s ‘Far Out’ iPhone 14 event on September 7: How to Watch Livestream, Best Options
A new iPhone 14 lineup will be introduced Wednesday at Apple’s annual flagship event, which is returning to the stage after a two-year long break. The big question is how much the Company will charge for the latest models at a time when soaring inflation has sparked recession fears. Insiders predict a price increase for the latest iPhone 14 series, though the amount is difficult to predict. However, one side claims that even if Apple raises the prices of its latest iPhones, the impact on consumer wallets will be minimal. According to some analysts, Apple will raise the price of the iPhone 14 Pro lineup by $100. Consumers aren’t as flush with cash as they were before the pandemic, but Apple’s loyal, affluent customers can absorb the higher sticker prices of new iPhones.
Despite experts predicting a gloomy economic outlook, Apple reportedly instructed suppliers to produce at least 90 million units. That means the Company expects iPhone 14 demand to be similar to that of the iPhone 13 last year. Wedbush Securities analysts predict high demand for the iPhone 14, estimating that 240 million of the world’s 1 billion iPhone users have not upgraded their phones in over three and a half years.
There are Four iPhone 14 Models
When Apple unveils its new lineup at Apple Park, we expect to see four iPhone 14 models. According to reports, Apple will likely discontinue the “mini” model with a 5.4-inch screen this year. The “mini” will almost certainly be replaced by a new “Max” or “Plus,” or whatever Apple decides to call the device. The 6.7-inch iPhone will sit between the regular iPhone and the more expensive “Pro” model. The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max are expected to include a slightly improved version of the current A15 chip, longer battery life, and an upgraded front-facing camera.
The Pro models are expected to receive the newest features, such as A16 processor upgrades, a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens (up from 12-megapixels), an improved ultra-wide-angle lens with larger pixels, and possibly a new telephoto lens with a longer zoom. Apple may include an astrophotography mode in the iPhone 14, which appears to be teased in the “Far out” invite.
Apple could also include an always-on-screen mode for notifications in the Pro lineup, which has been available on Android phones for years. The company may also include a satellite connectivity option in the high-end iPhone 14, though this would be for emergency use only.
Three Apple Watch Models
Apple is preparing to release three new Apple Watch models this week. The Apple Watch Series 7 received a slightly larger display last year, but the device’s look and feel remained unchanged. Its successor, most likely dubbed the Series 8, will use the same design. Apple’s new watches may include a new body temperature sensor, which could aid in fertility and sleep tracking.
The most considerable Apple Watch announcement, however, could be a new high-end “Pro” model with a larger screen, increased durability, and more physical controls. According to sources, the Apple Watch Pro will compete with Garmin, which is known for producing high-end smartwatches aimed at professional athletes and hikers.
Along with the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro, an updated Apple Watch “SE” could be announced. The current-generation Apple Watch SE is $329, but the next model could be even cheaper. The new strategy may assist Apple in targeting the updated Watch SE model for first-time users, particularly children.
What Else is on the Way?
At its “Far Out” event, Apple is also expected to announce the second-generation AirPods Pro. The AirPods Pro 2 could get a new design, lossless audio support, and other improvements. Apple has not released a new AirPods Pro model since the original in 2019. Sales of truly wireless earbuds are brisk, but Apple is under pressure from both established players like Sony and Bose, as well as mass-market players like BoAt and Noise in India.
Apple will also explain iOS 16, which was first announced in June and has been in testing for months, at the event. In mid-September, Apple usually releases the latest iOS update alongside the release of new iPhones.
Aside from new iPhones and Apple Watches, Company may also uncover different subscription services. During the last quarter, Apple’s services business grew at the fastest rate. Apple Music, iCloud, and Apple TV+ are among the services that have over 860 million paid subscribers.
Apple Event ‘Far Out’: When and Where to Watch?
Apple’s ‘Far Out’ Event begins at 10:00 a.m. PST (Pacific Standard Time). For viewers in India, this means a late night at 10.30 p.m. Apple’s presentations are typically two hours long, so we predict the event lasting until 12.00 am or 12.30 am. However, Apple usually keeps these launches short and sweet, so don’t be surprised if it’s over in an hour and a half.
For users who own an Apple device, such as an iPhone, iPad, or MacBook, the official Apple website is the best option. Apple users can watch the event live on the Apple website. You can watch the event live on the Apple website using the Safari browser. Users can also watch the event on the Apple TV app, which is included with the majority of Apple devices. The event is also available to non-Apple users on Apple’s official YouTube channel.
