Apple has officially confirmed the date and time for this year’s iPhone-focused product unveiling: September 7 at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EST).

This is the same date that was leaked in a Bloomberg report last week, though members of the media are invited to the Steve Jobs Theater on Apple’s campus to cover the event and talk to the devices in person (the report claimed it would be entirely live-streamed, as many of Apple’s pandemic-era products have been). Apple’s invitation was rather cryptic, but it can be assumed that the company plans to announce the updated iPhone line and the release date of iOS 16.

A report from Bloomberg says that Apple will discontinue the “mini” iPhone for the iPhone 14 lineup and release a less expensive 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max for people who want a big screen but don’t want to step all the way to the Pro iPhones. These sound like the best new features there is reserved for higher-end phones, including a notch-less display with smaller cutouts for the front-facing camera and sensors, an all-new processor, and a new primary camera with a 48-megapixel sensor.

Bloomberg also reported that we’ll see updated Apple watches at the event, including a new version of the budget SE model and a larger and more “rugged” model with better battery life and additional fitness features. The company will reportedly hold a separate event in October to focus on iPad and Mac updates, as it often does. an apple confirmed to TechCrunch yesterday that iPadOS 16 will officially launch after iOS 16, and it can be assumed that it will arrive in October together with macOS Ventura.

Full coverage of the event, including our usual live blog, will follow on September 7.
