With September right around the corner, the question on everyone’s mind is this: what will Apple showcase at their annual fall event?
Below are a few key things we expect to see from Apple at the rumored September event:
1. The iPhone 7
Likely the biggest reveal at the event, sources believe that Apple will reveal the iPhone 7 at their event. And by doing so, they will help to put to rest a number of the rumors surrounding the design elements of the new smartphone. Thus far we’ve heard that there will be an absence of a headphone jack, a dual-camera system, a new color, and more.
A recent screenshot leaked by 9to5Mac hints that the new smartphone is coming with a screen shot showing that AT&T is queuing up for “merchandising reset hours” on September 9th and 23rd.
2. Hint at New iPad Sizes
A recent rumor circulating the web shows that Apple might be working on new sizes for the iPad to debut next year. Specifically, there will be a larger version of the iPad Pro that measures 10.5″, in addition to a 12.9″ iPad Pro 2 and a 9.7″ iPad. All of this comes from a report by MacRumors and their interview with analyst and notorious Apple fortune teller Ming-Chi Kuo. Kuo has successfully predicted a number of Apple products, releases, and specs, and has been called by Business Insider as “the most accurate Apple analyst in the world”.
So while these devices won’t be available until 2017, there’s a chance that Apple might hint at what they are currently working on in order to keep the iPad fanatics engrossed.
3. The Apple Watch 2
And as of late, Apple Watch supplies have been running low, so it certainly might hint that Apple is gearing up to release its latest rendition of the smartwatch. Rumors hint that the second generation Apple Watch 2 will feature things like a FaceTime camera, GPS, and even its own cellular connectivity. Although most users are aching for better (and longer) battery life, it seems as though the new functions will hinder any extended battery life.
4. iOS 10
We’ve already been given a sneak peek as to what is to come from iOS 10: new iMessage features, improved maps with reservations options, a Siri upgrade, Raise to Wake functionality, 3D touch within apps, photo search, and other exciting functions and tools to help you enjoy your iPhone more. Although the iOS 10 beta version has been released already to developers and public testers (now in its sixth beta installment), Apple might just disclose the official release date for this new iOS at the event.
Unfortunately, it is believed that Apple will not unveil their new updates to the MacBook Pro, which may include a new touchscreen bar for productivity enhancement in addition to Touch ID passcode and overall faster performance.
