Apple enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of the next keynote, and it’s finally here. Apple has set the date for September 12, and fans can’t contain their excitement. This event promises to unveil some highly anticipated products, including the iPhone 15, a new Apple Watch, and AirPods with a USB-C port.
Mark your calendars for September 12, a day that’s sure to be a highlight for Apple aficionados. The tech giant has officially revealed that a special event will take place at 7 p.m. KST. The keynote has been aptly named “Wonderlust,” cleverly playing on the words “wonder” and “wanderlust.” It captures the essence of the event, signifying the desire to be amazed. In French, the invitations bear the name “Revelations,” adding a touch of mystery and anticipation.
Without a doubt, this event will serve as the stage for Apple to introduce its highly anticipated iPhone 15. Many details about the phone’s specifications have already surfaced, thanks to reliable sources like the renowned analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
The iPhone 15 is expected to come in four models: iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone Pro, and iPhone Pro Max (or Ultra). Notably, Apple is poised to bid farewell to the Lightning port in favor of USB-C. This move aligns with the European directive mandating a universal charger by the end of 2024. The two Pro models are set to feature the cutting-edge A17 Bionic chip, crafted with a 3-nanometer manufacturing process, and USB 3.2 or Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, boasting speeds of up to 40 Gbps. Meanwhile, the other two models will house the A16 Bionic chip from the iPhone 14 Pro, accompanied by USB 2.0 for a maximum transfer rate of 480 Mbps (or 60 MB/s).
In addition to these hardware updates, the two high-end versions are anticipated to sport a periscopic zoom lens, possibly limited to the iPhone Pro Max, along with a new action button and a titanium chassis. As for the two base models, they’re set to embrace a 48-megapixel camera sensor, integrate the Dynamic Island, and receive a memory boost to 6 GB of RAM, compared to the 4 GB found in the iPhone 14.
The excitement doesn’t end with the iPhone 15. Apple is also poised to unveil a new iteration of the Apple Watch and provide insights into the upcoming iOS update. Additionally, there are whispers of a new version of AirPods equipped with a USB-C port.
For those unable to attend the event in person, fret not. Apple will be broadcasting the keynote live on its website and via Apple TV, ensuring that fans around the world can join in on the excitement.
