The holiday shopping season is closer than you think, which means Apple is is about to unveil its next iPhone. (Check out our Apple Event Live Blog too.)
The company’s fall product launch event on Wednesday, which it dubbed “Far Out,” will almost surely serve the iPhone 14. The next iPhone is rumored to include an always-on display – similar to what’s currently on the Apple Watch – allowing for constantly viewable information without ruining battery life.
Apple hasn’t said what it plans to announce at its event, sending only a cryptic invitation to the press, with an Apple logo apparently placed in a night skysuggesting potential camera improvements or those from last year satellite emergency call rumor. The image looks like something we might see from The James Webb Space Telescope, whose superb photos have already begun to change the way we view the cosmos.
The launch of the iPhone 14 will also mark the 15th year since the original iPhone debuted in June 2007. Back then, the device was not the sure shot it’s today. Many tech industry watchers were excited about Apple’s prospects, but it hadn’t been proven to create reliable phone technology before. It also faced massive competitors such as Microsoft, Palm, and Research in Motion, whose BlackBerry devices dominated business at the time. Within a decade, however, Apple – as well as Google’s popular Android software – had beaten the three companies.
While the iPhone will be a key product we’ll see at Apple’s event this year, and probably what most people are focusing their attention on, the company is expected to host other events later this year with new features. other devices to show. These include new Mac computers with upgraded chips and new iPads.

What can we expect besides the launch of the iPhone 14?
Apple’s digital events are fast and brilliantly produced. And even though Apple is trying its hand at in-person events again due to coronavirus pandemic-era health concerns back slowly, the company still seems to be applying what it’s learned about how to make its events more engaging. At its last event, the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, Apple held a livestream but then offered in-person demos for the press afterwards.
