Everything rumored about Apple’s September event: iPhone 14, Apple Watch Pro, and more

We’re about a month away from Apple’s annual September event, which focuses on new iPhone and Apple Watch models.We thought we should take a quick look at the rumours surrounding Apple’s September event Mike Rumors Readers get a brief look at what to expect when the first fall event kicks off.

The iPhone 14 may be described more as the “‌iPhone‌ 13S,” as it’s not expected to have many changes. We’re expecting the same design and the same A-series chip, but camera improvements are possible.

Potential September event dates

There’s no word yet on when Apple will hold its annual September event, but given that these events almost always take place in the first two or three weeks of the month, we can make some educated guesses. September 5th is Labor Day, so it’s over, and most events take place on a Monday or Tuesday, although it may sometimes be on a Wednesday.

Most likely target date:

  • September 7
  • September 13
  • September 14
  • September 20
  • September 21

September 12 and 13 are the two most likely dates, and if Apple does plan an event on one of those dates, we’ll probably get an announcement the week before.

Past Event Dates:

  • 2015 – September 9
  • 2016 – September 7
  • 2017 – September 12
  • 2018 – September 12
  • 2019 – September 10
  • 2020 – September 15
  • 2021 – September 14

October events

Apple’s September event isn’t the only event we’ll be attending before the end of the year. We’re also looking forward to the October event, which will introduce new iPad Pro models, a new low-cost iPad, an improved Apple TV, and Apple’s silicon version of the Mac Pro.
