Apple events are big tech industry affairs. People from all walks of life watch these as Apple announces the next big thing they have to offer. A lot of these people might be Apple enthusiasts or people who are already way deep into the Apple Ecosystem.
But there are a lot of other people like us who are just excited about the latest hardware and software that Apple has to offer.
On Tuesday, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, Apple has scheduled a special event. As is customary, Apple’s September event revolves around their latest iPhones, and this year’s anticipated lineup includes the 6.1-inch iPhone 15, 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus, 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, and 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Rumor has it that the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will be available in five vibrant colors – black, pink, yellow, blue, and green – whereas the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to be offered in a more subdued selection of black, blue, gray, and silver.
Furthermore, leaks suggest that these new iPhones will come paired with a snazzy 1.5m braided USB-C to USB-C cable matching the device’s hue. Additionally, Apple might provide customers with the option to purchase a high-speed Thunderbolt 4 cable specially crafted for the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Lastly, speculation surrounds the possibility of AirPods Pro receiving a refresh featuring USB-C, along with potential price increases and limited availability of the coveted iPhone 15 Pro Max.
Some rumors also claim the possibility of a unique Ultra Model in the lineup.

More iPhone 2023 leaks from the September 12 Apple Event
In addition to the AirPods, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has provided further insights into what we can expect from the iPhone 15 lineup. He’s confirmed previous rumors about color options for the Pro models (gray, silver/white, black, and blue) and revealed that the switch to a titanium frame will result in lighter Pro models compared to their predecessors.
Software updates are also on the horizon, with iOS 17 expected to launch alongside the new iPhones. This update will bring at least six new features to the AirPods Pro, such as Adaptive Audio and Conversation Awareness. Currently, iOS 17 is in beta testing for both developers and public beta testers, with the eighth beta recently released.
Finally, rumors suggest that a redesigned Magic Keyboard will accompany the upcoming 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pro models, which are slated for release in early 2024. These new iPads are expected to feature OLED displays and an M3 chip, making them powerful and sleek additions to Apple’s product lineup.
Kuo recently said the following as well in his newsletter:
- The primary production hurdles involved stacked CIS, panels, batteries (which expanded when exposed to heat), and titanium frames.
- Issues with stacked CIS have been alleviated by ramping up production capacity, although they still impact roughly 10–15% of standard model shipments.
- Modifying the supplier shipment proportion solved the panel problem.
- Improving production yield addressed the battery and frame concerns.
- Titanium frames pose formidable production difficulties due to high processing complexity and substantial design alterations during development, including abandoning the virtual button design in the second quarter of 2023.
- Despite these challenges, titanium frames promise to reduce device weight.
- The Pro Max variant was the final one to begin production, resulting in a lagging mass production timeline compared to other models.
Will the “Dynamic Island/Notch” go away?
But it seems like Apple won’t be breaking out of the notch world any time soon as their infrared-based Face ID will most definitely be present on the newer iPhones too. And we haven’t yet seen any under-display Face ID rumors as of yet.
But here comes the important question
How to watch the September 12 Apple Event?
If you are someone with an Apple device, be it a Mac, iPad, Apple TV, or iPhone then it would be very easy for you. Just head over to this page on the Apple website on the event date and there will be a stream over there to check out stuff.
Even for people with Windows 11/10-based PCs with Microsoft Edge browser installed it won’t be that much of a hassle.
Even if you miss out on the event, you can always watch it later on on the Apple Events page. You can expect the whole event to be somewhere around 2-2.5 hours in duration. There would be some sales mumbo jumbo in the beginning but with so many products to showcase expect that to be a very minor part of the presentation.
The whole event will be available on YouTube as well on the below URL.

If you are an Apple TV user then the process to watch the Apple September event is a little different. Instead of going to a site for this, you would be able to access an Apple events application just sometime before the event. Once it has been opened, users would be welcome by an option to watch the live stream of the September 12 event.
You need to have a 2nd generation or above Apple TV with 6.2 or later software in order to watch the event.
Apple TV users would be able to rewatch the whole keynote using the Apple Events App anytime they like in the future.
