With Apple’s normal timing, pre-orders for the brand new iPhones would go dwell a couple of days afterward Friday, September 15, and a launch would come one week afterward September 22.
Apple sometimes holds its occasion within the first two weeks of the month, enabling it to launch its new iPhones and e book important income earlier than the corporate’s fiscal quarter wraps up on the finish of the month, and it seems this 12 months will likely be no exception. There have, nonetheless, been rumors of manufacturing challenges, which might imply sure fashions see very tight provides or perhaps a barely later launch.
A report from 9to5Mac final week claimed that a number of service companions have blocked workers from taking time without work on Wednesday, September 13, in anticipation of a “main smartphone announcement.” It is not completely clear why service worker off days can be blocked on an occasion day, as pre-order and launch days are their busiest occasions, but it surely does line up with Gurman’s reported schedule.
Apple’s iPhone occasions are mostly held on Tuesdays, aside from weeks that coincide with Labor Day on that Monday in the USA. In these instances, the occasions are often held on Wednesdays to permit media to journey on the day past with out interfering with the vacation. Given the rumored week doesn’t embody Labor Day this 12 months, that may argue for a Tuesday occasion on September 12, but it surely’s not out of the query for Apple to go for a Wednesday occasion for some motive.
Apple often sends out media invites roughly per week advance, so we nonetheless have a while earlier than we get official affirmation on the occasion date, however further rumors firming issues up will possible floor over the subsequent month.
Along with the iPhone 15 lineup, the September occasion is anticipated to incorporate up to date Apple Watch Collection 9 and Apple Watch Extremely 2 fashions, ultimate particulars and launch dates for iOS 17 and associated working system updates, and maybe a couple of different bulletins.
