The time has come for Apple’s annual fall event. Nicknamed “Wonderlust,” this is where we expect the company to reveal the iPhone 15, the latest in its line of smartphones. It’s going to be a big one, and if you have any remote interest in Apple or the technology industry, you won’t want to miss it. Here’s how you can watch the September 2023 Apple Event.

Watch the September 2023 Apple Event

The Wonderlust Apple Event will take place today, September 12, at 10am PT/1pm ET. It’s being streamed on the Apple website as well as the company’s YouTube channel. These fall events traditionally last for two hours.

As for what to expect from the event, the iPhone 15 is at the top of the list. Apple almost always announces the new iPhone during its fall presentations, and the iPhone 15 has been heavily rumored for months. Several reports have claimed that the phone will transition from the Lightning Cable to USB-C. Of course, the iPhone 15 won’t be the end of Apple’s offerings today. We’ll also be looking out for news in the world of Mac, AirPods, and Apple Watch.

That’s how you can watch the September 2023 Apple Event. If you can’t tune in, we here at Shacknews will be reporting all of the biggest stories and announcements out of the event on our Apple topic page.

      Sounds like they've got a pretty good new chip for the watches that will boost performance and batter life. I think I am going to jump on an Ultra Watch 2. My Apple Watch 4 is starting to get long in the tooth.

            It's a button that can be assigned to toggle between things now. You can choose what you want it to toggle. If you still want it to be a mute toggle you can do that. For those of us who are enlightened and always leave their phone muted no matter what, you could assign it to something else that you'd use more often.

        Beyond that, there's nothing significant that's happened in phone technology in the last 10 or so years. It's just minor iterations on the supercomputers we all already have in our pockets.

        I mean real answer? The USB controller is in the SOC. The non Pros use last years SOC which was still USB 2. Next year when the A17 goes down to the regular models it will probably go USB 3.

      Adaptive transparency should be out today: https://www.macrumors.com/2023/09/12/apple-releases-new-airpods-firmware-2/ Really curious if this works well or not.

        I guess it’s just called adaptive audio. https://imgur.com/a/rkXPyPH And conversation awareness is a feature that Sony has had forever but would kick in if you coughed or sneezed. I’m really curious if these new modes are worth it.

      Also yeah a boring update. The improved brightness in the base iPhone is nice but the real update was years ago when they brought oled panels to the iPhone 12 which I am probably going to hold onto for another year.

      I hope Evening Reading gets updated as IOS17 made it unusable for me.

      Pull to refresh is broken. Replies and opening links is unreliable and often don’t load. Scrolling is choppy.

        Having the higher refresh screen is the biggest thing you'd notice since the 11 is 60hz

          after getting used to it, 60hz feels like choppy crap when I use an older device

            It never the upgrade that shocks you, it’s going back.

            Like after using the retina on the 4 for a few hours. I thought it looked nice, but not crazy good. Then I looked at a 3GS and it looked so bad.

            120hz looked a little smoother to me. But whenever I use my work phone it looks so bad now.

              Yeah, it's swiping and animations of apps opening that looks like trash on a 60hz panel

      Finally native DisplayPort alt mode! From the iPhone Pro specs:

      Video mirroring and video out support: Up to 4K HDR through native DisplayPort output over USB-C or USB-C Digital AV Adapter (model A2119; adapter sold separately)

        I wonder if you can use the thing with keyboard and mouse like.the iPad? It would be nice.

        But if you can just play games on a TV with a gamepad (games compatible with controllers obviously) it's also nice.

          You can use a M+KB with an iPhone. I think you have to turn the mouse cursor on using accessibility but it totally works.

      You can pre-order the pre-order for the new iPhone before finishing the order on Friday morning.

      I'm using the upgrade plan so it's just swapping out the phone. Keeping to the same model line and general specs. Payments will remain unchanged.

        Seems weird to me. What is even still at USB 2.0 now (other than iPhone 15)?

        But then again how many people use USB for transferring anything off their phone?

      15pro is legit lighter than 14pro. Main reason for me to upgrade. This phone is too heavy.

      Anyone else disappointed with the action button? From what I understand it only.works by long press so it's very limited.

      I'd have that as a default but allow people more inclined to tinker to enable other actions with 1 or 2 short presses.

        The action button on the watch is a similar disappointment. It should be so much more than it is.

        sounds like the same as the icons on the lock screen basically, it's not a very long action.
