Apple’s biggest event of the year is approaching. The Cupertino company celebrates this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. (Spanish peninsular time) its traditional key note, in which it will probably present the expected iPhone 14. The leaks suggest that it could also announce the Apple Watch Series 8, which would release a temperature sensor; the Apple Watch Pro, a new member of the family that would be the brand’s most expensive and ambitious watch; and the AirPods Pro 2, which would aspire to perform health measurements.
The iPhone 14
The sizes of some iPhones may change. Apple will supposedly eliminate the iPhone mini, 5.4 inches, because it has not been well received by customers, according to the MacRumors portal. The company plans to focus on larger iPhone sizes for its flagship devices. In addition to maintaining several models – a 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 14 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected – it could launch an additional one: a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max or Plus .
Although no significant design changes are expected, leaks suggest that the notch (the screen notch) will disappear. It seems that Apple will opt for a circular hole for the camera along with another in the shape of a pill that will house the key components of Face ID, the facial recognition system of its mobiles. This would be a great change in the design of the terminals taking into account how conservative the technology tends to be in this section.
There is also the possibility that the iPhone 14 Pro have the screen always on so that users can see information at all times without having to touch it, according to Mark Gurman, the informant par excellence of everything that is cooked in the back room of Apple. “Like the Apple Watch, the iPhone 14 Pro will be able to display widgets with information about the weather, calendars, actions, activities and other data while the screen remains at a low brightness and frame rate, “explains Gurman.
Among Apple’s priorities is to improve the camera of these phones. After years betting on 12 megapixel sensors, the new iPhone Pro is expected to incorporate cameras that reach 48 megapixels and 8K video recording. These models will also reportedly see telephoto and ultra-wide improvements. It has also been rumored for months that most terminals will have larger batteries.
Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch Pro
More and more users buy a smart watch. It is expected that this year 173 million units will be sold and in 2025 this figure will reach 253 million, according to Statista. The Apple Watch is the best selling in the world. The Cupertino company is likely to present the Apple Watch Series 8 at the event. Leaks indicate that this watch will have flatter edges and a squarer design, similar to that of the latest iPhone. Gurman predicts that the device will also incorporate a body temperature sensor, which, in theory, could be used to alert the user of possible illness and to monitor menstrual cycles.
In addition, the brand is expected to present a new, more ambitious model: the Apple Watch Pro. This watch will supposedly be the largest ever launched by the company. It is expected to arrive in a 49-millimeter size. Its large screen would serve to show more activity and health statistics at the same time. The watch, according to Gurman, will also have a larger battery, along with a low-power mode and a tough titanium case. With this device, whose price could reach 1,000 dollars, Apple intends to captivate those who practice extreme sports and stand up to manufacturers such as Garmin within the high range.
AirPods Pro 2
In addition to the iPhone and Apple Watch, the tech giant is also expected to announce the new AirPods Pro 2. These wireless earbuds will be an update to a model that first went on sale in 2019. possibility that they are more compact and dispense with the stem that protrudes from the bottom. Apple could have experimented with a more rounded shape, more similar to that of the Google Pixel Buds or the Samsung Galaxy Buds — both stemless — according to MacRumors. However, some recent leaks indicate that there will be no major design changes.
In addition to delivering higher-quality sound, some rumors also suggest that the AirPods Pro 2 could detect heart rate or body temperature inside the ear. Some even suggest that these devices could work like a hearing aid to help people with hearing loss better hear sound in the environment.
These are the main announcements expected from this Wednesday’s Apple event. Although the company also seems to have worked on new iPads, it is not clear if it will present them this time or reserve them for later. It is also possible that Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, will announce the release date of the new operating systems iOS 16, watchOS 9 and tvOS 16.
