Update : Apple presented its new devices with the iPhone 14, Watch Series 8, AirPods Pro 2. Here is the complete list as well as our related articles.
Many new products should be unveiled this evening, if we are to believe the various rumors and rumors of the corridors. The new iPhone 14, 14 Pro and their Max versions are obviously expected to be the kings of the show, in addition to a trio of Apple Watch watches, including the Apple Watch Series 8, which is said to be nearly identical to the Watch Series 7. AirPods Pro 2 should slip in among these hardware announcements
If you’re intrigued by Apple’s new smartphones or those Apple Watches, you won’t want to miss the Cupertino company’s next big event. But where to watch Apple’s September Keynote live stream? And what to expect? Here is all the information.
When is the September Apple event?
Apple has scheduled its next product launch for the Wednesday, September 7. The event will take place face-to-face, Apple’s first since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic (apart from a few VIPs since the global developer conference which took place in June). It will start at 19 hoursParis time.
How can I watch the September Apple event?
Apple will host a live stream of its September event on its website. You will be able to watch it on any web browser whether you are using a laptop, desktop or mobile device. Additionally, Apple continues to live stream its events on YouTube and the event titled Far Out will be no exception.
We have embedded the video of the live stream below, which will therefore begin on September 7 at 7 p.m.
You can also set a notification via YouTube to be alerted when the Keynote starts. Typically, the static video gives way to a live broadcast a few hours before the event.
If you have an Apple TV, you’ll be able to watch the September Apple event right on your TV screen. Apple Keynotes can be found in the TV application of Apple TV, quite simply.
What is Apple going to announce at its September event?
As we noted at the beginning, this is the time of year when Apple likes to introduce its new smartphones. Apple has not confirmed anything, as usual, but the chances are high that it will present its new iPhone 14s.
Apple is expected to present four new models. In addition to the standard model, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, we think we’ll see a 6.7-inch version that will replace the iPhone 14 mini in Apple’s phone lineup. This new device will be called either iPhone 14 Max or iPhone 14 Plus.
As a reminder, the two entry-level iPhones should still use the A15 chip, introduced with the iPhone 13. So do not expect significant performance increases for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 More (or Max).
The Pro line should be the most impressive this year. In addition to the A16 Bionic processor, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max could replace the notch with a pill-shaped cutout to house the front camera and Face ID sensors.
The main camera and the ultra-wide lens of the iPhone 14 Pro models should also receive improvements, with a supposed sensor in 48 megapixels. They should also benefit from LTPO screens in 120 Hz, with an always-on panel (like the Apple Watch, in short). These changes come at a cost. If the news is good Apple would increase the price of all its models by 120 euros compared to their counterparts, the iPhone 13.

Apple Watch 8
The other big announcement likely to happen on September 7 is an update to the Apple Watch. And like the iPhone 14, we expect to see multiple watches. The highlight of this year’s model would be a temperature sensor as well as a low-power design to extend battery life.
But we could also see an Apple Watch Pro, a premium version of the Apple Watch that’s supposed to be sturdier than the standard model. Intended for uncompromising athletes, it would reach $1,000. Apple could also show off an Apple Watch SE 2, updating the entry-level watch in its lineup.
AirPods Pro 2
Apple’s new high-end wireless headphones, the AirPods Pro 2, are also expected to make an appearance. Rumored new features include fitness tracking tied to the new Apple Watches, improvements to active noise cancellation, a case that rings when lost, the addition of Lossless audio support, and customizing the equalizer.
New Software Announcements
Updates to iOS 16, macOS Ventura and watchOS 9 should surprise no one since Apple showed off these three updates last June. Apple could take advantage of its event Far Out to give an exact release date. iPadOS 16 is also slated for a fall release, although Apple has already confirmed that it will arrive later than the iOS 16 release.
Any other announcements planned?
There are insistent rumors that Apple is currently working on a VR/AR headset, although the product itself isn’t likely to arrive until next year. Nevertheless, Apple does not hesitate to show its new products, and this, well before their launch. Its price would have even already leaked.
A new iPad Pro model may come out this year, as well as new MacBook Pros (with M2 Pro and M2 Max chips), which are expected to release in late 2022. The iMac mini and the 2023 iMac Pro, which most people are anticipating for next year, could be introduced.
Of course, these announcements are much more likely to have an event of their own, rather than asking Apple to cram everything into its September 7 event. We’ll know for sure when we tune in to the live stream of the event next week.
