Apple announced a special event set for 10 a.m. Pacific Time on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. Similar to last year, Apple will offer the pre-recorded iPhone15 event for media members to watch in person on campus. They may also get hands-on experience with new products after their introduction.
What to Expect From the ‘Wonderlust’ iPhone15 Event
Apple traditionally focuses its September gathering on iPhones. This year, the iPhone 15 event is expected to see Apple unveil the smartphone in four different sizes. These include the 6.1-inch iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro, as well as the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus and iPhone 15 Pro Max. There are whispers, though, that the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be rebranded s as the iPhone 15 Ultra.
These new models should feature a Qualcomm 5G chip and a USB-C port instead of the usual Lightning charging port. We also expect Apple to bring the Dynamic Island, introduced with the iPhone 14 Pro lineup, to all iPhone 15 handsets.
Both Pro models are set to receive exclusive features, including a 3-nanometer A17 chip and a customizable Action button. This will replace the traditional mute switch. Additionally, the iPhone 15 Pro Max may feature a periscope zoom lens for up to 6x optical zoom.
Anticipating a More Expensive iPhone 15 Pro
Given the enhanced features and cost of new technology, Apple may set the starting price for the iPhone 15 Pro at $1,099, and the Pro Max $1,199. We believe Apple will maintain current pricing for the standard iPhone 15 models.
During the iPhone 15 event, the Cupertino-based tech giant should also introduce the Apple Watch Series 9 and a new version of the Apple Watch Ultra.
The event will be live-streamed on Apple’s website, YouTube, and the Apple TV app
