The iPhone 14, as well as many new products from the apple brand, will be presented at the Apple Keynote that will be held on Wednesday September 7, 2022. Overview of expectations.
For weeks, speculation has been rife over the announcements to be made at the next Apple Keynote. The wait is almost over: the Apple brand’s back-to-school conference will officially be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2022 at the Apple Park in Cupertino (California). The event should lift the veil on the iPhone 14 and the various iterations as well as new versions of flagship products such as AirPods Pro or Apple Watch.
Four mobile phones are rumored to be announced by the company’s boss Tim Cook: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max (a larger version that is more accessible than the iPhone Pro Max), iPhone 14 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The iPhone mini will bow this year. Obviously, the entire range does not benefit from the same technologies.
Four models, but no longer a mini version
To mark the difference between the classic and Pro versions, which should offer the same screen size (6.1 inches and 6.7 inches diagonally), the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will be equipped with the A15 chip, the same as the iPhone . 13 and iPhone 13 Pro released at the end of 2021. Only the devices with the seal Pro will send a new processor, the A16 chip, and will benefit from improvements in the field of photography with 48 megapixel sensor, against 12 megapixels for the classic version. , and an improved FaceTime camera with autofocus.
In terms of design, we should expect some changes. The screen needs to leave the black notch located at the top of the screen in favor of a simple punch. And maybe even choose a double punch on the iPhone Pro, including one in the form of a pill to place the camera and the facial recognition system. The whole thing disappears even out of sight thanks to a showy sly hand.
A significant price increase
Plus, it’s sure to be the last generation of Apple phones to be charged using proprietary Lightning cables. From 2023, iPhone models must switch to the USB-C port, the charging system used by all Android mobiles, to comply with European regulations.
Finally, according to the latest predictions issued by analyst Ming Chi Kuo, these upcoming smartphones should be less affordable than their predecessors. For good reason, the analyst expects a 15% increase in the entire iPhone 14 series, first in three years, to reach an average price estimated between 1000 dollars and 1050 dollars. This can be explained by the increase in the price of ingredients, but also due to the increase in the dollar rate almost everywhere in the world.
The Apple Watch Pro: the highlight of the show?
This rumor has been going on for weeks. This year, the Apple Watch seems to be more important for the American electronics giant. May announce later no less than three versions of the connected watch and show the Apple Watch Series 8, the Apple Watch SE 2, but above all a new advanced version marked “Pro” for athletes.
Corridor noises suggest that this latest iteration, which is more durable to withstand shocks and sports activities, may sport a flat screen size larger than in the current Apple Watches (47 mm against 41 and 45 mm), will be finished more cared for and that it can even be done. which is able, according to Ming-Chi Kuo, to alert its carrier in case of fever. All models can benefit from improved autonomy thanks to the arrival of a low power mode and a new, more economical processor.
The Apple Watch Pro is strongly expected to be announced at the end of the conference during a “One More Thing“ which the company likes.
Additionally, AirPods Pro 2 may also be in the game. These wireless headphones with active noise reduction benefit from a new design, a new chip and improved sound.
