With the Wonderlust presentation wrapping up on September 12th, it’s time to take stock and see just how close the rumors we’ve been spreading for months between fans and non-fans, journalists and tech and mobile phone aficionados were. And many argue that when Apple introduces something, the world stops and takes a closer look.
Without further ado, that’s all we learned today at Wonderlust, Apple’s fall event in Cupertino.
Apple Watch Series 9
It’s been one solid dish and the predictions have come true, which actually takes a lot of the excitement out of the case as the new Apple Watch Series 9 lineup looks to be a repeat upgrade over previous models.
As expected, the biggest change is in the S9’s internal chip, which is based on the A15 Bionic iPhone 13 and iPhone 14. This new chip will bring significantly improved performance and efficiency. Essentially, the new chip will provide better app launch speeds and possibly better battery life.
The best part is that you can now ask Siri about your health: for example, ask her how you slept and she will tell you how many hours you slept. There’s also HomePod integration, which should start a new phase of integration between your watch and your smart home.
One of the most exciting new features is double tap, which is activated by touching your thumb with your index finger and other fingers, so you no longer have to touch Apple Watch. You can answer calls, activate the shutter, turn off the alarm, etc. It will be available in another month.
There will also be a collaboration with Hermes on straps, which obviously won’t come cheap.
Apple Watch Series 9 starts at $399. You can order it today and it will arrive to customers on September 22.
Apple Watch Ultra 2
There has been a lot of speculation as to whether we’ll see the second generation of Apple’s big boy, the Watch Ultra. And since the first Ultra is so good, what’s the need to update one that’s only a year old? Apple has seen fit to update it, which is great news for us anyway.
The same S9 chip found under the Series 9’s hood is vastly superior to the Ultra 2. We’ll have to test it, but on paper it suggests a significant boost in performance and improved battery life.
The straps are made from recycled plastic, and although they were supposed to be black, they won’t be.
Speaking of price. You can order the Apple Watch Ultra 2 for $799 starting today, and it goes on sale September 22.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus
But we came to see the new iPhones, and although rumors have already given us an idea of what they will be like, the new iPhone model will never leave us indifferent.
The “regular” iPhone 15 has a 6.1-inch Super Queen WWW screen – its version has a 6.7-inch OLED.
As expected, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are equipped with the A16 Bionic chip, which was originally introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
And yes: Apple has changed the Lightning port to USB-C for charging, audio, data and video. The MagSafe charge introduced in this series 12 years ago is also retained. And Dynamic Island, previously exclusive to iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, will appear across the entire iPhone 15 lineup, including base models. It will have more features than previous models. This may open up more possibilities for use by third-party applications.
They have a 48MP main camera that promises unmatched pictures for entry-level iPhone models in 2023. In addition, it is equipped with a 12 MP telephoto lens.
The Portrait option has been improved, allowing you to take more vibrant images than ever. They also provide the ability to focus on the background after the photo has been taken, which is an exceptional addition.
And it’s all thanks to the A16 chip, which will keep the entire machine running smoothly faster and longer as its battery lasts longer.
In fact, the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are very similar to their predecessors. The color range includes black, green, blue, yellow and pink. This may be the first time Apple hasn’t released a base white color, and the colors appear to be more muted pastels.
They are made from 75% recycled aluminum.
The iPhone 15 starts at $799 and the iPhone 15 Plus starts at $899. If you bring your old iPhone, you may be given a discount of up to $800. You can order them from September 15th and will receive them on September 22nd.
iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Max
Titan is the word of the day. The truth is that it looks fantastic and has the thinnest bezels ever seen on an iPhone.
The design of the iPhone 15 Pro is very similar to the previous iPhone 14 Pro, although with some differences. The frame could be titanium rather than stainless steel, which would make the phone a little lighter but more durable. However, the titanium finish means the color scheme will be a bit monotonous, as it looks like there will only be black titanium, white titanium, blue titanium and natural titanium. Gold was dropped from the color scheme in favor of titanium, much to the dismay of many fans.
They are made from 100% recycled aluminum.
The new design also features contoured edges and a customizable action button, allowing users to personalize their iPhone experience. Powerful camera upgrades enable the equivalent of seven professional lenses with incredible image quality, including a more advanced 48MP main camera system that now supports a new 24MP ultra-high resolution by default, next-generation portrait photography with focus and depth control, and improvements to night function. mode and Smart HDR, plus an all-new 5x Telephoto lens available only on iPhone 15 Pro Max. A17 Pro brings a new level of gaming experience and professional performance.1 And with the addition of satellite roadside assistance, the iPhone 15 Pro lineup leverages Apple’s innovative satellite infrastructure to connect users and help them if they have car problems while they’re on the road . grids
iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be available in four stunning new colors: Titanium Black, Titanium White, Titanium Blue and Natural Titanium. Pre-orders begin Friday, September 15th, with availability beginning Friday, September 22nd.
The Action button, as expected, has also made its way to the iPhone, making the mute button a thing of the past. Of course, you can use it to mute your iPhone, as well as many other functions.
Apple will include the A17 Bionic chip in the iPhone 15 Pro, delivering impressive growth in all areas of computing, especially in the Pro-class GPU. Ray tracing is the fastest in modern mobile telephony, as we were assured in Cupertino. The mobile gaming world should take this news with interest.
With deep hardware and software integration, the advanced camera systems on iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max include the equivalent of seven professional lenses supported by A17 Pro. With computational photography capabilities, the 48MP main camera is designed specifically for the Pro line, giving users even more flexibility with a new 24MP ultra-high resolution default resolution that delivers incredible image quality in a convenient file size ideal for storage and sharing. The main camera allows users to switch between three popular focal lengths (24mm, 28mm and 35mm) and even select one as the new default. In addition to ProRAW 48MP, the main camera also supports 48MP HEIF images with 4x higher resolution. iPhone 15 Pro features a wide-angle 3x telephoto lens, while iPhone 15 Pro Max offers the longest optical zoom on an iPhone: 5x at 120mm.
You can also shoot spatial video with your camera, allowing you to record video in reality.
The iPhone 15 Pro lineup offers convenient new ways to charge, find friends in crowded places, and stay connected on the go. Both models use USB-C, a common standard for charging and data transfer, allowing you to charge your iPhone, Mac, iPad, and updated AirPods Pro (2nd generation) using the same cable. Users can also charge AirPods or Apple Watch directly from the iPhone using the USB-C connector. iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max support USB 3, delivering data transfer speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second, up to 20 times faster than before.
The iPhone 15 Pro starts at $999 and you can order it starting September 15th. The iPhone Pro Max starts at $1,199 and will also be available to order starting September 15 this year. Both mobile phones will go on sale on September 22.
