Besides the iPhone 14, what else could the tech giant reveal at this week’s Apple Far Out event?
It’s that time of year again when Cupertino prepares to unveil a range of new gadgets, with the Apple Far Out event scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m. in California – which is the very early hours of Thursday morning in Australia. .
Apple always likes to drop a few hints when sending out invites to its launch events, and this one is no exception. With an image resembling the night sky, it seems likely that “Far Out” could be referring to astrophotography support in the new iPhone 14, following Google’s efforts with its Pixel phones to capture decent photos of the night sky.
When it comes to the iPhone 14 lineup, Apple is expected to ditch the small iPhone mini model. There is also talk of a larger regular iPhone, called 14 Plus, rather than the 14 Max. Some new iPhones may also stick with Apple’s A15 Bionic chips, due to chip shortages.
Beyond the next iPhone, there are plenty of rumors about what else Apple might reveal on stage.
Apple is also expected to unveil a new Apple Watch lineup, adding an Apple Watch Pro to the lineup. Larger than existing models and featuring a bigger screen, the Apple Watch Pro is expected to feature a titanium case and a more durable design, aimed at extreme sports enthusiasts.
Meanwhile, the AirPods Pro 2 could support fitness tracking through their built-in accelerometer and other sensors. They should support the next version of the H1 chip, handling digital signal processing and possibly Bluetooth 5.2.
If Apple wants to go really far, it could finally unveil its long-talked-about AR/VR headset, or take on Samsung and release a foldable iPhone.
