The month of September can only mean one thing for tech enthusiasts – it’s time for Apple’s annual fall product launch event. This year’s showcase is set for Tuesday, September 12th at 8PM East Africa Time (1 PM ET), where Apple is expected to unveil its next-generation iPhone 15 lineup.
The star of the show will likely be the iPhone 15 series, featuring an all-new design with a potential first-ever switch from Lightning to USB-C charging. But that’s not all – rumors point to upgraded Apple Watches, new AirPods, software updates, and more.
Read on for an in-depth preview of Apple’s September event and how to live stream the big reveals as they happen.
Goodbye Lightning, Hello Faster USB-C Charging?
The biggest potential change coming to the iPhone 15 is the rumored switch from Apple’s proprietary Lightning port to universal USB-C charging. Apple has resisted adopting the USB-C standard used by virtually every other modern smartphone. However, an EU ruling mandating the change on all personal devices may finally force Apple’s hand.
Renowned Apple leaker Mark Gurman reports the iPhone 15 lineup will indeed make the USB-C transition. This would enable faster charging speeds, quicker data transfer, and bring the iPhone in line with the rest of the industry.
The other major iPhone 15 rumor is an extension of the Dynamic Island notification bubble feature debuted on iPhone 14 Pro models. Leaks indicate Dynamic Island will come to all iPhone 15 variations, consolidating alerts and multitasking functions into an interactive pill-shaped UI element.
Beyond these changes, expect typical incremental iPhone upgrades like faster A17 chipsets, camera improvements, and premium titanium alloy frames on high-end models. Storage capacities may also increase across the board.
Apple Watch, AirPods and a Peek at the Mixed Reality Headset
While the iPhone 15 garners the spotlight, Apple’s September event often packs in plenty of other device announcements. We’ll likely see a new generation of Apple Watch Series 8 models with faster processors, extended battery life and ruggedized designs.
An update for the top-of-the-line Apple Watch Ultra tailored for extreme sports is also rumored after its debut just months ago.
In the audio department, refreshed AirPods Pro 2 earbuds could make an appearance with enhanced noise cancellation and audio quality.
Finally, Apple may provide an early look at its upcoming mixed reality headset. The device would represent Apple’s first new product category since the Apple Watch, aiming to pioneer an iOS-based virtual and augmented reality ecosystem.
