1TB iPhone Storage, Face Recognition That Works With A Face Mask: Fans Speculate On Apple Products To Be Unveiled On September 14
'Tis the Christmas season.
September is an exciting month for Apple users, since it’s when the newest products have been launched every year for the past 14 years. Aside from the iPhone (which now has twelve generations, on top of the SE series), Apple is also known for the iPad, Apple Watch, iMac, MacBook, and AirPods.
On September 8, 2021, Apple sent out the much-awaited invites to the media for the Apple Event that is happening on September 14, 10:00 AM (PDT). Naturally, this got people excited, especially since supposed “leaks” on the new products have surfaced earlier. Here are some of the rumored and expected drops on September 14:
Pink or Rose Gold iPhone 13 Pro
Apple already released a rose gold iPhone, in 2015, but this shade of pink is said to be even better. We know we are not alone for wanting this to become a reality. Obviously, getting a clear case would be best to flaunt the new iPhone’s aesthetic!
Sunset Gold iPhone 13 Pro
Hey Alexa, play Sunset Lover by Petit Biscuit. Gold has been a non-negotiable hue in the past few generations, but sunset gold? That’s new. This might even be better than the rose gold, because then you’ll be reminded of Manila’s magnificent sunset every time you look at the back of your phone.
What to expect from the iPhone 13 Pro: 6.7” OLED display, Face ID 2.0, Astrophotography (the capability to photograph astronomical objects), 25W fast charging, new colors. The iPhone 13 Pro is rumored to be released in the market on September 24 for $1099 / P55,000 (Rose Gold) and $999 / Php 50,000 (Sunset Gold).
Back to Matte Black
Are we getting back the iPhone 7 matte black? The comments on this post definitely got a lot of good feedback. Black is always a classic, but matte black is even sleeker! It’s getting harder to pick from these color options.
1 TB Storage for iPhones
Okay, what? One Terabyte—is this a laptop? Apple users who move their data from their old iPhone to their new one know how much of a headache storage can be. The files just seem to multiply and it’s hard to let go of them. Memory hoarders will love this because they won’t have to worry about losing phone space anymore.
Diagonal Camera iPhone 13
It may be kind of confusing as to how this would work, but let’s just trust Apple on this one. They surely know what they are doing. Yet again, they are expected to release 2-camera iPhones for this generation. The third camera makes a huge price gap, so why not?
What to expect: 6.1” OLED display, Face ID 2.0, 25W fast charging, new colors, starts at $799 (around Php 40,000), September 24 market release.
Apple Watch Series 7
A larger display and new faces are expected for the new Apple Watch series! Renders show that the design looks even boxier than the old models. In addition, the new Apple Watch model is also reported to have new blood pressure measurement capabilities. Smart watches are just getting smarter!
What to expect: 45mm size, 1.9” display, new modular max face
AirPods (3rd Generation)
Looks like the new AirPods are sticking with the Pro design. If you’ve been eyeing the Pro since 2019, this might be your chance to get it. Word on the street is, it looks just like it, but cheaper.
What to expect: New design, new chip, spatial audio, $199 (around Php 10,000)
Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellite Communications
What is LEO Satellite Communication? The Apple Hub says it will “allow users to make calls and send messages when cell signal is not available. The new iPhone will utilize a custom version of the Qualcomm X60 baseband modem chip with support for communications over satellite.”
If at all true, that will be a really cool new feature. It can come in handy during emergencies or natural disasters, so let’s hope Apple took notes!
Face ID 2.0
The coronavirus certainly made Face ID futile, for we always have to wear face masks and/or face shields. There have been reports that Apple is coming up with an improved and advanced Face ID feature that will work even with your face mask and foggy glasses on.
More products are expected in the October and November launches, such as the iPad mini, iPad, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini.
Can’t decide whether to upgrade your iPhone, iPad, iMac, MacBook, or AirPods now? Here is why you should (or should not):
Take note that all of the above are merely speculations from Apple enthusiasts and insiders, and these may or may not be accurate—but we’re definitely as stoked as you are. Fast forward to the launch day, please!
