Apple is said to be unveiling iPhone 14, three watches and AirPods Pro 2 on September 13th

As you probably already know, Apple’s next big iPhone event is in September. Corresponding iDropNews, the company has already decided to hold the event on September 13th. While that’s still about four months away, before you know it, you’ll be watching Apple promoting the four models that make up the iPhone 14 series. We should see Apple unveil a 6.1-inch iPhone 14, 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max .

Apple is expanding the differences between Pro and “non-Pro” iPhone models this year

Apple will reportedly equip the iPhone 14 Pro models with the 4nm A16 Bionic chipset, while the non-Pro phones could reuse the 5nm A15 Bionic SoC found under the hood of all iPhones -13 phones located. This could help Apple widen the gap between the Pro and non-Pro 2022 models. Most consumers have no idea which chip is powering their phone and most don’t care. Reusing the chip could help Apple price the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max more competitively.

We’ve seen reports that even if Apple reuses the A15 Bionic chips on the non-Pro iPhone 14 phones, they might give them a different name (e.g. call them A16 Bionic and give the new 4- nm-SoC A16 Pro). Apple hopes this trick will take the sting out of its customers paying a hefty price for a phone that reuses the last-gen chipset.

Other differences include replacing the notch on the iPhone 14 Pro models with the “i-shaped” cutout for the FaceTime camera and true-depth camera; Meanwhile, the more affordable non-Pro models will continue to sport the notch. Other improvements expected in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max include the 120Hz ProMotion display and the 48MP wide camera on the premium models
While the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 13 mini didn’t gain traction, it will be interesting to see how well the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max sells. It could attract a lot of sales from those who always wanted the largest possible iPhone display but couldn’t afford the latest Pro Max device.

Also coming: the long-awaited AirPods Pro 2 and three Apple Watch models

The report calls for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Max to start at $799 and $899, respectively. Storage options could include 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could start at $1,099 and $1,199, respectively. Storage options could be 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and possibly 2TB (although Apple typically makes such adjustments every two years, meaning a 256GB base option and a 2TB maximum storage option might not be available until 2023).

we could see Apple is introducing a trio of Apple Watch models in September, including the Apple Watch 8 (the rumored to have flat sides again), a new Apple Watch SE budget watch, and a brand new Extreme Edition that will compete with smartwatches designed to track outdoor sports and activities.

Also on the menu are the AirPods Pro 2. The long-awaited sequel to Apple’s premium TWS earbuds. The wearable could come without stalks, offer next-generation active noise cancellation, and support lossless audio. The AirPods Pro 2 may also support USB-C charging for the charging case.

While many are expecting Apple to take another big leap in battery life, that may have to wait for the iPhone 15 lineup. Apple first greatly increased the battery capacity with the 3969mAh battery in the iPhone 11 Pro Max. That was a 20% increase over the 3179mAh battery used in the iPhone 10 XS Max.

But with the iPhone 12 Pro Max, Apple took a breather, dropping the battery capacity by 7.1% to 3687mAh. Battery life has improved slightly thanks to the A14 Bionic chip used in this series. It was the first SoC built on the 5nm process node and used on an iPhone, and the 38.8 percent increase in transistors from the 8.5 billion in the A13 Bionic to the 11.8 billion in the A14 Bionic could extend the battery life.

After last year’s 18 percent increase in iPhone 13 Pro Max battery capacity (from 3687 mAh to 4352 mAh), we may have to wait until next year to see another huge increase in iPhone battery life.
