iPhone 14 and Apple Watch Series 8 arrive on September 7 | Digital Trends Spanish

According to reports, Manzana is planning an event on September 7 to launch new smart phones and watches, reports Bloomberg. Earlier this month, notable tech leaker Max Weinbach also tweeted about an Apple event happening near the September 6 window. The star of the event will be iPhone 14of course.

To recall, Apple introduced the iPhone 13 series on September 15 last year, which falls around the same debut window as the tentative date for the iPhone 14 arrival. The report also mentions that retail employees have been notified about a September 16 launch slot for new products.

However, Apple has yet to make an official announcement regarding the date for the first of its many planned events in the fall 2022 season. The report also warns that the event date of September 7 is not set in stone. and could change in the future.

Better cameras, higher selling price

Details about the iPhone 14 quartet have leaked multiple times in recent months. But unlike the iPhone 12 and 13 series, there won’t be a “mini” model to choose from this year. Instead, Apple is reportedly adding a larger ‘Max’ model outside of the Pro lineup with a 6.7-inch screen.

In terms of design, the vanilla iPhone 14 and its Max variant will borrow its look from the iPhone 13 series. However, the iPhone 14 Pro models are rumored to ditch the notch in favor of a divisive pill + hole cutout on the back. upper part to house the Face ID sensors and the selfie camera.

The camera department is where things get really interesting. Apple is said to be looking at a 48-megapixel primary camera for the iPhone 14 Pro and its Max sibling, assisted by a pair of 12-megapixel cameras for wide-angle and telephoto zoom duties.

New video capture tricks are touted to be in the works, along with battery life improvements. However, it seems that the updates will come at a cost. TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and Wedbush analyst Dan Ives expect a roughly $100 price jump for the Pro models.

Another controversial change is happening in the silicon department. Apple is reportedly reserving the next-generation A16 Bionic processor for the Pro models only. The non-Pro will continue to use the A15 silicon that we last saw in the iPhone 13 series. The strategy isn’t entirely unheard of, as the Apple Watch Series 7 also includes virtually the same processor as the Apple Watch Series 6.

New watches, new skills

Speaking of the Apple Watch, the company is planning three new models. The base model of the Series 8 will come in two sizes, and will be joined by the next-generation Apple Watch SE and a rugged model with a larger screen aimed at extreme sports enthusiasts.

The new smartwatches are expected to get a new temperature sensor similar to the one Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. However, the sensor will not display temperature readings as numerical values. Instead, it will only watch for gross fluctuations and alert users if they develop a fever.

Bloomberg has previously reported on new women’s health features, more fitness analysis options, and medication management tied to the latest version of WatchOS. Sleep apnea detection is also said to be on the upgrade table, along with a new car accident detection system.
