Apple Rumored to Unveil iPhone 14, Three Watches, AirPods Pro 2 on September 13

As you probably already know, Apple’s next big iPhone event will be in September. According to iDropNews, the company has already decided to hold the event on September 13. Even though there are still about four months to go, before you know it, you will see Apple promoting the four models that make up the iPhone 14 series. We should see Apple show off a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, an iPhone 14 6.7-inch Max, a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Apple will widen the differences between iPhone Pro and “non-Pro” models this year

Apple would equip iPhone 14 Pro models with the A16 Bionic 4nm chipset while non-Pro phones could reuse the A15 Bionic 5nm SoC found under the hood of all iPhone 13 handsets. This could help Apple widen the differences between the 2022 models Pro and not Pro. Most consumers have no idea what chip powers their phone and most don’t care. Reusing the chip could help Apple make the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max more price competitive.

We’ve seen reports that even though Apple is reusing the A15 Bionic chips on non-Pro iPhone 14 phones, it could still give them a different name (like calling them A16 Bionic and giving the new 4nm SoC the A16 Pro). Apple hopes that for its customers, this sleight of hand will save them from paying a high price for a phone reusing the latest generation chipset.

Other differences include replacing the notch on iPhone 14 Pro models with the “i” cutout for the FaceTime camera and True Depth camera; meanwhile, lower-priced non-Pro models will continue to sport the notch. Other improvements expected on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max include the 120Hz ProMotion display and 48MP Wide camera on the higher end models.
While the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini failed to gain traction, it will be interesting to see how well the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max sells. This could generate a lot of sales from those who have always wanted the biggest iPhone screen possible but couldn’t afford the latest Pro Max unit.

Also coming soon: the long-awaited AirPods Pro 2 and three Apple Watch models

The report calls for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max to start at $799 and $899 respectively. Storage options can include 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB of storage. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could be priced starting at $1,099 and $1,199 respectively. Storage options could be 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, and possibly 2TB (although Apple typically makes such adjustments every two years, which means a base 256GB option and a base option of maximum storage of 2TB might not happen until 2023).

We could see Apple introduced a trio of Apple Watch models in September, including the Apple Watch 8 (which (again, it’s rumored to sport flat sides), a new budget Apple Watch SE, and an all-new Extreme Edition that will rival smartwatches designed to track sports and outdoor activities.

Also on the menu are the AirPods Pro 2. The long-awaited sequel to Apple’s high-end TWS headphones. The wearable could come without stems, feature next-gen active noise cancellation, and support lossless audio. AirPods Pro 2 can also support USB-C charging.
