The iPhone 14 launch event, dubbed “Far Out,” is set to begin at 10:30 p.m. IST tonight. The Cupertino-based company is expected to unveil its next generation of iPhone models, including the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Meanwhile, the Apple Watch Series 8 is also expected to launch, and it would also include a new Apple Watch Pro model. Apple may also launch the AirPods Pro 2 at tonight’s event. The company’s launch event will be streamed live via YouTube and Apple’s website, and you can also watch it in the embedded player at the top of this live blog.
While the iPhone 14 isn’t supposed to feature any notable design updates, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max models are expected to swap out the notch for a new “unified” cutout for punch-holes and pills. This would be the first major change to the iPhone display notch since it was introduced with the iPhone X in 2017.
The company is also expected to drop the “mini” model in favor of the iPhone 14 Max (or iPhone 14 Plus, according to recent leaks), which would be an iPhone 14 with the same screen size as the iPhone 14 Pro Max. . Apple previously launched the iPhone SE (2022) in March, equipped with the A15 Bionic chip, which is also expected to power the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max models.
Meanwhile, the Apple Watch Series 8 will likely feature a similar design to last year’s Series 7 lineup, according to previous reports. However, this year’s models are expected to feature a new low-power mode, while customers can expect to see a new health monitoring feature in the form of body and skin temperature monitoring.
Apple is also expected to launch a new Apple Watch Pro model, which would be a durable and rugged version of its smartwatch for active users, equipped with a titanium body. This model is designed to feature a larger screen than the others as well as a new button.
Finally, Apple is also expected to launch a new model of its true wireless earbuds, the AirPods Pro 2. Likely to be the successor to the AirPods Pro that debuted in October 2019, the new earbuds are said to feature a similar design, while offering an improved dropout activates noise and audio quality. Previous reports also suggest that the earbuds could support MagSafe wireless charging and USB Type-C wired charging.
