Judging by the previous one, the iPhone 14 will launch on a Tuesday in September, and a leaker has now given us a good idea of which Tuesdays we should mark in our calendars.
According to Apple-focused site iDropNews, based on information from its own sources, the September 2022 Apple event will take place on September 13 – that is, right in the middle of the month, basically when we were expecting.
Take this date with a grain of salt for now, because so far in advance, it’s possible this date is just a placeholder for Apple. The company could push back the date for various reasons if necessary – and the lessor could simply be wrong.
The leaker says Apple will hold an event on the 13th, and it might not be the iPhone 14 launch – but since Apple tends to hold its iPhone launches on Tuesdays in September, the times line up .
The leaker suggested plenty of extra gadgets are coming on top of the iPhone 14, though there’s nothing mentioned that we haven’t heard before. Apparently there will be four iPhone 14s (the standard model would be accompanied by a Max, Pro and Pro Max version), the Apple Watch 8 alongside an “Extreme Edition” for more outdoor activities, the Apple Watch More affordable SE 2, AirPods Pro 2 and the new iPad (2022).
With all these new products, it’s possible the company will hold two launch events like it did in 2020 – so, we’ve seen new iPads and Apple Watch earlier than the year’s iPhones. If that happened, September 13 would likely only be for non-iPhone devices, as it did in 2020, with the iPhone 14 family coming later.
Since Apple usually announces its launch events a week before they happen, we’ll probably have to wait until September 6 to see if anything happens on the 13th – though leaks may tell us what to expect by first.
