Apple’s ‘Far Out’ event is just around the corner and the company is expected to unveil the alleged iPhone 14 series on September 7. The company’s next-generation smartphone series saw many ups and downs leading up to its launch. The event was influenced by global events – such as Sino-US geopolitical tensions, the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict, the lockdown in China due to the spread of Covid-19, among others – so much so that reports had previously indicated that Apple would need to postpone the event. Launch and shipment of upcoming handsets.

In the week leading up to Apple’s upcoming ‘Far Out’ event, here are 14 points that summarize everything we’ve learned over the past few months about Apple’s upcoming handsets and what you can expect from the event.

What to expect from Apple’s ‘Far Out’ event?

  1. Firstly, Apple has announced that they are holding a ‘Far Out’ event on September 7 this year. The company is expected to launch the iPhone 14 series of smartphones. Alongside the iPhone 14 models, the Cupertino-based technology company will unveil a new generation of Apple Watch models, which could be called the Apple Watch Series 8. The series is said to get a Pro variant which could be a tough offering. Sports lover.

  2. The iPhone 14 series is expected to include four models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The ‘Max’ suffix is ​​said to come with a larger display compared to the other two. Apple is also expected to differentiate in terms of hardware between Pro and non-Pro models.

  3. iPhone 14 rumors suggest that this year will feature a change in iPhone design. Apple has been following the same notch design since the launch of the iPhone X. While the iPhone 13 series has seen minor changes to the notch shape, the iPhone 14 models are expected to come with pill-shaped and hole-punch cutouts. . Apple’s Face ID technology will remain the only biometric option for unlocking smartphones.

    The iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are said to come with a 6.1-inch display. iPhone 14 Max and iPhone Pro Max may have 6.7-inch panels.

  4. As mentioned, Apple has been able to reduce the size of the famous notch over the years, but it seems ready to remove the notch for good. Recently, a report suggested that the Cupertino-based company may have used a patented light-folding projector to minimize the notch and fit sophisticated Face ID technology into the pill-shaped cutout. The cutout is said to house various components, including a camera, an infrared (IR) light emitter, and a “light folding element” that may have the ability to redirect IR light and allow Apple to offer more display area.

  5. Remember we talked about “Hardware Differences Between Pro and Non-Pro Models?” The report suggests that the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro models will be powered by the new A16 Bionic chip, while the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max will pack the A15 Bionic chip available on the current iPhone 13 devices. What could be the reason for that? Here’s a link to our podcast article before you tune in to get more clarity on the iPhone 14 models.

  6. “iPhone 14 Price?” Probably the most asked question in the coming days. To be clear, a lot has happened on the front. Some reports have suggested that the iPhone 14 Pro models will cost $100 (roughly Rs. 8,000) more than the iPhone 13 Pro model. However, the iPhone 14 price in India is said to be a completely different equation. Apart from the alleged “price increase and higher shipment volume” of the iPhone 14 models, the weakening rupee against the dollar could create a big price difference compared to the previous model. Moreover, the iPhone 14 may be available for purchase around 10 days after the launch.

    The iPhone 14, however, is expected to start at $749 (approx. 60,000). Apple is expected to use a cautious pricing strategy to prevent negative impact on sales performance.

  7. Great cameras are synonymous with iPhone models, and the iPhone 14 series is also reported to raise the bar again (read our review of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max). Apple is expected to include a 48-megapixel main camera sensor. It is also said to offer an upgraded ultra-wide camera due to the inclusion of a 1.4μm sized image sensor (vs. 1.0μm of the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max).

  8. The iPhone 14 series is also expected to come with support for 30W wired charging. The iPhone 13 Pro appears to support 23W and the iPhone Pro Max supports charging up to 27W via a USB-PD adapter.

  9. There could be a new connection between Satellite and the upcoming iPhone 14 lineup, which could be announced on September 7. Various reports have indicated that Apple is working on a way to communicate with people in the absence of cellular coverage. To that end, the company is said to have completed hardware testing of the satellite communication feature on the iPhone 14 before it enters mass production. The same feature is also included in the rumored Apple Watch Pro.

  10. Apple announced iOS 16 at WWDC earlier this year and said it would be released alongside the iPhone 14 series. You can read our coverage on the cosmetic features as well as the security improvements that iOS 16 will bring.

  11. A few weeks ago, online reports suggested that Apple will manufacture some of its iPhone 14 series handsets in India. This will not only help Apple mitigate the possibility of shipment problems due to the recession, but is also a huge opportunity for India to boost the country’s manufacturing industry.

  12. India has its own history of manufacturing iPhone 14 models, and China is reportedly at the heart of Apple’s problems. First, the rise in Covid-19 cases in China forced the government to impose a lockdown in the country which adversely affected the production of iPhone 14 parts in an already conflict-ridden (Russia and Ukraine war).

  13. Sour US-China geopolitical relations regarding Taiwan have prompted Apple to seek alternative markets for iPhone production. As mentioned above, some iPhone 14 models will be manufactured in India, however, there is a manufacturing gap between India and China which is said to be narrowing. Apple is wary of India’s high standards of product secrecy.

  14. As mentioned, Apple’s September 7 launch event could also see the debut of the alleged Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro. Reports suggest that the Apple Watch Series 8 could be offered in 41mm and 45mm case sizes. The Pro model is said to come with a satellite communication feature and come with a 47mm design with a flat screen.

One more thing! The iPhone 14 will be offered in green, purple, blue, black, white and red color options, while the iPhone 14 Pro is expected to come in green, purple, silver, gold and graphite shades. We expect to find out more about these color options in the coming days.
