How to Watch the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8 Launch

There are few things that more certain in life than death, taxes and new iPhones for the fall. On time, on Sept. 7, Apple’s planned what’s likely to be its biggest event of the year, launching the latest iteration of its most significant product line, the iPhone

The newest version, expected to be called the iPhone 14, is rumored to include an always-on display similar to what’s on the Apple Watch now, allowing for constant glanceable information without ruining battery life.

Apple hasn’t said much about what it plans to announce at its event, only sending out a cryptic invitation to the press, with an Apple logo set against a seeming night’s sky, suggesting potential camera improvements or last year’s rumored satellite emergency calling. The image looks like something we might see from the James Webb Space Telescope, whose stunning photos have already begun changing how we see the cosmos since first being released earlier this summer. In its announcement, Apple included the teaser words “Far out.”

The iPhone 14 launch will also mark the 15th year since the original iPhone’s debut, in June of 2007. Back then, the device wasn’t the sure hit it is today. Many tech industry watchers were enthusiastic about Apple’s prospects of course, but it hadn’t proven it can build reliable phone technology before then. It was also up against massive competitors such as Microsoft, Palm and Research in Motion, whose Blackberry devices ruled the business world at the time. Within a decade though, Apple — and Google’s popular Android software — had bested all three companies.

What can we expect, besides the iPhone 14 launch?

Apple’s digital events are fast paced and slickly produced. And even though Apple’s now trying its hand at in-person events again as coronavirus pandemic-era health concerns slowly recede, the company still seems to be applying what it’s learned about how to make its events more compelling. During its last event, the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, Apple held a livestream but then offered in-person demos for the press afterward
