Apple To Launch iPhone 14 On September 7


{{moment(articledata.cdate)}} @{{" ","")}} comment

%Apple ($AAPL) plans to launch %iPhone14 and several other electronic devices at an event scheduled for September 7.

In addition to the newest iPhone, Apple could also launch new %MacBook computers, low-end iPads, and three new models of the Apple Watch at the September event.

Cupertino, California-based Apple has a history of launching other products alongside the latest iPhone, notably Apple Watches. The company usually releases the new iPhone in stores about a week or two after it is officially unveiled to the public.

As has become customary, Apple plans to live stream the September 7 iPhone launch online rather than holding an in-person event, continuing a trend it adopted during the pandemic.

Apple’s last public event was held in June to announce several software updates -- iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9 and macOS Ventura.

Media reports say that the standard iPhone 14 will look like the iPhone 13, though the company will eliminate the 5.4-inch “mini” version of the smartphone and add a model with a 6.7-inch screen, the first time Apple has launched a display of that size.

The company is planning bigger changes for the iPhone 14 Pro, including replacing the front-facing camera cut out with a pill-shaped hole for Face identification, and adding a hole-punch-sized area for the camera.

Apple is also adding a faster chip to the iPhone 14 Pro and a 48-megapixel wide-angle camera alongside 12-megapixel ultrawide and telephoto sensors. Apple is also planning improvements to video recording and battery life on the iPhone 14 Pro.

For the latest Apple Watches, known as Series 8, Apple is expected to add features for women’s health and a body-temperature sensor.

The standard Series 8 watch will look similar to the Series 7, but a new Pro model will have a larger display, more durable titanium case, new fitness tracking features, and better battery life.

The company also is planning a new Apple Watch SE, its low-cost smartwatch, with a faster processing chip.

Also coming in September is iOS 16, the software that will run the new iPhones, and watchOS 9, the new Apple Watch operating system.

Apple is also reported to be working on a low-end iPad with an A14 chip and USB-C port, as well as a new iPad Pro model with M2 chips, both of which could also be launched in September.

Apple stock is down 4% this year and currently trading at $174.55 U.S. per share.
