The iPhone 14 will be announced alongside the Apple Watch on a Wednesday

Apple would have decided internally on the presentation date of the iPhone 14 as well as the new Apple Watch.

September 7. Here is the date chosen by Apple according to the latest information from Bloomberg on the subject. Unlike previous years, Apple is set to launch the iPhone 14, 14 Max, 14 Pro, and 14 Pro Max on a Wednesday, not a Tuesday. If the date of September 6 had long been mentioned as a preferred option by Apple, plans have changed in recent hours.

In a memo that has circulated internally, the apple brand warns its employees and assures that they will have to be ready for a release of new products on September 7. In all likelihood this announcement refers to the iPhone 14 and the new Apple Watch. The two products should be presented together, on the same evening.

iPhone 14 Pro: the real change will be in the screen

As for the new phone from the apple brand, we already know a lot about it. It should be the same size as last year. The bulk of the changes only concerned the Pro and Pro Max models, which should abandon the notch for a double punch system.

Another novelty expected on the iPhone 14 Pro is the arrival of an “always-on” feature. Already present on the brand’s connected watches, this option saves battery power while keeping its screen on. By offering a panel with an adaptive refresh rate, Apple could succeed in drastically reducing the energy consumption of the iPhone, without the latter having to turn off.

In “sleep”, the device would then consume less than when we turn it back on. This option should be presented in detail by Apple on September 7, but we already know that it will be exclusive to the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.

An Apple Watch and a price increase for the start of the school year?

In the rest of the announcements, Apple should give pride of place to connected watches. Two models are expected for the start of the school year. In addition to the Apple Watch Series 8, which should be an evolution of the Series 7, Apple is preparing to launch the Apple Watch Pro. This high-end connected watch is still quite mysterious.

But other things could change with this new generation of products: prices. Indeed, several rumors expect the Apple brand to offer products above €1000 (iPhone 14 Pro) and a connected watch around these prices with a starting price announced at $900 by several analysts. .

iPad and Mac later this year

The big absentees from this back-to-school conference for Apple should be the iPad and Mac, which will probably have the right to their own presentation conference in the weeks to come. iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura are also announced for this future conference, which should be held in October.
