September Product Announcements

iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro

The iPhone 15 and 15 Pro models are expected in September, which is Apple’s typical iPhone refresh month. The iPhone 15 models will be the first with USB-C instead of Lightning, and there could be minor design changes in store. We are expecting a 6.1-inch iPhone 15, a 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Plus, a 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max, though the “Pro Max” could get a new “Ultra” naming scheme this year.

The Pro models are expected to include a faster A17 chip built on a 3-nanometer node, and the biggest iPhone could feature periscope lens technology for 6x optical zoom capabilities.

Apple Watch Series 9

Alongside the iPhone, Apple always refreshes the Apple Watch, and we are expecting the Apple Watch Series 9 in September. There’s no word as of yet what will be included with the Apple Watch Series 9 update.

It is not yet clear if the Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Ultra will also be updated in 2023.
