Apple iPhone 15 event: the seven biggest announcements

Apple’s iPhone 15 event has concluded. The iPhone 15 wasn’t the only important announcement made by Apple at the event, as predicted.

From a refreshed smartwatch lineup to a shift toward USB-C charging, here’s a rundown of everything Apple announced during its Wonderlust event.

The iPhone 15 lineup adds USB-C, Dynamic Island, and more

Apple has officially unveiled the long-rumored iPhone 15 series. Not only do the new gadgets have USB-C for the first time, but they also include the Dynamic Island, which was previously only available on the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max versions.

The new iPhone 15 also has the A16 chip seen in the 14 Pro. The iPhone 15 will have a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 15 Plus will have a 6.7-inch display. Both have a 48MP primary camera, “all-day battery life,” and a second-generation ultra wideband chip.

The iPhone 15 costs $799, and the iPhone 15 Plus costs $899. The gadgets will be available for presale on September 15th, with deliveries beginning on September 22nd.

iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max replace the mute switch with an Action Button

More improvements are on the way for the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max versions, including a USB-C connector and a new configurable Action Button that replaces the mute button. It also has slimmer bezels and a lighter design owing to its titanium construction.

When compared to the standard iPhone 15, Apple is including a more efficient A17 Pro CPU as well as speedier USB-C charging. The iPhone 15 Pro Max includes a 5x telephoto camera in addition to a 48MP primary camera.

The 6.1-inch iPhone 15 Pro begins at $999, while the 6.7-inch iPhone 15 Pro Max begins at $1,199. The new phones will be on sale for presale on September 15th and will begin arriving on September 22nd.

Apple Watch Series 9 gets a performance boost

Apple has unveiled the new Watch Series 9, which features an ultra-wideband chip and an improved S9 processor for “all-day” battery life. The watch also has a “double-tap” gesture that allows you to answer calls or snooze alarms by touching your index finger and thumb together twice.

The Watch Series 9 will also be available in a new pink colorway, as well as stainless steel casing variants. Furthermore, in order to lessen its carbon impact, Apple is discontinuing the use of leather watch bands (and phone covers). The Watch Series 9 is available for $399 with GPS (or $499 with GPS and cellular). You may order them starting today, and they will be available on September 22nd.

Apple Watch Ultra 2 comes with a small spec bump

Apple also unveiled the second-generation Apple Watch Ultra. It will have an ultra wideband chip and a S9 CPU, just like the Watch Series 9 and will support the double-tap gesture. The new Watch Ultra 2 will also include an enhanced 3,000-nit display, as well as 72 hours of battery life in low-power mode.

Apple also debuted a new watchface dubbed Modular Ultra, which makes advantage of the display’s outside borders. The Ultra 2 with GPS and cellular costs $799. It is now available for presale and will arrive on September 22nd.

Apple is adding USB-C to the AirPods Pro, too

Aside from the iPhone 15, which now has a USB-C charging connection, Apple also revealed that the AirPods Pro would now have a USB-C charging case. The business will also begin offering wired EarPods with the option, and the Apple Watch and AirPods Pro may be charged via the iPhone 15.

Release dates for iOS 17, watchOS 10, macOS Sonoma, and more

During its event, Apple disclosed the dates for the next round of iOS, watchOS, iPadOS, and macOS releases. Apple intends to release iOS 17, watchOS 10, and iPadOS 17 on September 18th, however macOS Sonoma will be released on September 26th.

A new Roadside Assistance feature via satellite

Apple is expanding its Emergency SOS via satellite feature to include roadside assistance in partnership with AAA. With the new feature, users can text Roadside Assistance to get help with a flat tire, a stuck vehicle, and more. Apple says it’s making the service available for free for the first two years with the iPhone 15.
