Today marks a significant day for Apple enthusiasts, as the highly anticipated iPhone 15 event unfolds before our eyes. You can catch the live stream of this exciting event right here, where Cupertino will showcase a multitude of thrilling announcements. The keynote, titled “Wonderlust,” commences promptly at 1 PM ET, or 10 AM on Apple’s sunny California campus. Rest assured, we’ll provide comprehensive coverage of each revelation as it unfolds.
But what can we expect from this event? Being a September keynote, traditionally known as the fall iPhone event, it’s safe to assume that the spotlight will shine on the iPhone 15. Anticipate the usual lineup, featuring a standard iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, a high-end iPhone 15 Pro, and the even more luxurious iPhone 15 Pro Max (which might receive a rebranding to iPhone 15 Ultra.)
In terms of specifications, leaks suggest that the iPhone 15 will usher in the USB-C era, bidding farewell to the proprietary Lightning port. This transition follows European regulations that compelled Apple to embrace a more universal port standard. Given Apple’s compliance with EU standards, the rest of the world is likely to benefit from this USB-C transition as well.
Screen sizes are expected to remain unchanged, with the top-tier models likely retaining the ProMotion feature, which is essentially a rebranding of the 120Hz variable refresh rate display. All four models are rumored to feature the Dynamic Island, a feature that debuted with the high-end iPhone 14 models.
While the iPhone 15 steals the spotlight, an Apple event is never without surprises. Typically accompanying iPhone releases are new editions of the Apple Watch. Keep an eye out for the Apple Watch Series 9 and an update to the Apple Watch Ultra. Rumors suggest that these upcoming smartwatches will boast a brand-new processor, marking the first major CPU upgrade since 2020.
AirPods are also in line for an update, with the standout feature being the transition from Lightning to USB-C. Software suites won’t be left behind, with potential highlights including iOS 17, watchOS 10, and even iPadOS 17. It’s highly likely that macOS Sonoma will receive more in-depth details and a confirmed release date.
Lastly, the highly-anticipated and cutting-edge Apple Vision Pro is scheduled for an early launch next year. The keynote might offer a sneak peek at new features or software in development for this mixed-reality headset.
