There will be an Apple event on 7th September. Apple Watch 8 series will also be launched with iPhone 14
Recently, Apple officially released the date of its Apple event. apple will launch iPhone 14 on September 7 and also launch Watch Series 8.
From the information revealed, it is also known that this time the event will be a physical event, for the last 2 years, the company was doing virtual events due to covid.
The company has started sending out invitations for the event. Along with this, the company has also shared the details about the event on the website. The iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and iPhone 14 Mini may be presented at this year’s Apple event. Also, the company can also announce the new Apple Watch 8 series.
Like every year, this year’s Apple event will be held at Apple Park in Cupertino, California. Its time in Company Invite will be 10:00 am PT i.e. 10:30 pm Indian time.
The theme of Apple’s invitation is “Far out” (extraordinary), and the Chinese theme is “super forward-looking”. So, what information might be implied in this invitation?
One of the most obvious possibilities, given the space-themed design of Apple’s invitation, is that it hints at new satellite connectivity. The iPhone’s satellite connectivity feature was first reported last year when it was rumored to be coming to the iPhone 13, but it never materialized.
In March, tech blog 9to5Mac exclusively reported that Apple is still developing these satellite features and could implement them this year as part of the iPhone 14’s features. iOS 16 also adds a new “SOS” (SOS) icon to the iPhone status bar, which appears when a user’s iPhone loses cellular connectivity.
The satellite functionality is expected to allow users to use it in an emergency, connecting to a satellite in the event of a loss of cellular service in order to contact first responders. There are also media reports that Apple has prepared two satellite functions: one to send messages in the Messages app, and the other to provide a more direct reporting mechanism in major emergencies such as plane crashes and shipwrecks.
In addition, the space theme of the invitation may also hint at a long-rumored feature, that is, the iPhone’s astrophotography function. This will improve the iPhone’s camera performance in low-light environments, especially outdoors. If this feature comes to fruition, the iPhone will be able to detect the moon or stars and then use longer exposure times and more internal processing to refine the image.
Finally, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may feature a new always-on display for the first time. This possibility may be less than the satellite connection function. However, the extremely dark background in the invitation may be related to the always-on OLED display in some way.
Google makes fun of Apple for adopting outdated smartphone technology
Recently, Google held a launch conference to introduce its Pixel collection devices such as the Pixel 7 series and Pixel Watch. During the press conference, the company mentioned Apple, iPhone 14, iOS 16, and the RCS message support that Apple was hesitant to adopt. Furthermore, Google couldn’t help but criticize Apple’s attitude toward innovation.
“Pixel has always been a leader in smartphone innovation,” said Brian Rakovsky, Google’s VP of Product Management. “We see it as an admiration when others in the industry follow our example, like ‘AOD’ And ‘At a Glance’ to put useful information directly on the lock screen.” He was referring to new features in iOS 16 and the iPhone 14 Pro.
“Three years ago, we launched the crash detection system, along with other features like safety checks and emergency sharing,” Rakovsky said at the launch. Last month, Apple introduced crash detection, the iPhone 14 Pro, And the latest Apple Watch, iOS 16 can bring more security features to users. “This is a groundbreaking feature record for the Pixel’s first launch,” he concluded.
One of the most contentious issues between Apple and Google right now is Apple’s refusal to support RCS messaging. Despite Google’s public call for Apple to adopt RCS, Apple continues to limit itself to the SMS standard and iMessage, just as it has for years with Type-C. According to Report Tim Cook previously responded, “This is not what Apple users ask the company to do.”
At last night’s Google event, it pressured Apple again to change course. “RCS is the modern industry standard for messaging and it has been adopted by most industries. We want every device manufacturer to understand this and adopt RCS to make texting better for every smartphone user.”

Report: iPhone 14 parts price is 20% higher than the iPhone 13
A dismantling report from Japan, according to Juheng.com, shows that the total price of parts for Apple’s iPhone 14 series flagship models is about 20% higher than that of the iPhone 13.
According to Fomalhaut, the total cost of parts for the iPhone 14 Pro Max is approximately $501 (approximately 41,495 INR), which is more than $60 (approximately 4970 INR) higher than the previous generation iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Since the launch of the iPhone “Max” flagship model in 2018, the cost price has fallen between US$400 (about 33,130 INR) and US$450 (about 37, 271INR). This time it has directly raised more than US$60, and the cost of parts and Parts totals both saw their biggest gains since 2018.
In terms of model pricing, the iPhone 14 Pro Max with the smallest capacity is priced at the same US market price as the same model in 2018 and remains at $1,099 (about 91,024INR). The rise in component prices was not directly passed on and became the main reason for squeezing profits.
According to the report, the cost increase of the iPhone 14 Pro series is primarily due to the A16 Bionic chip. The chip costs $110 (approximately 9,110INR), which is more than 2.4 times the price of the A15 chip found in last year’s iPhone 13 Pro Max. The A16 Bionic employs the most advanced 4nm process, which is currently only available from TSMC and Samsung Electronics.

We learned that Fomalhaut said that this highlights Apple’s product strategy that “it cannot be separated by new features, but has to use high-performance configuration to make a distinction”.
In terms of other parts, the CMOS used in the iPhone 14 comes from Sony. Among the three cameras on the rear of the iPhone 14 Pro, the size of the CMOS used in the main camera is 30% larger than before, and the price is also about 50% higher at $15 (about 1242INR). Due to the adoption of the new CMOS, the main camera of the iPhone 14 Pro series has increased to 48 million pixels.
The OLED panel of the dismantled model adopts Samsung electronic products; the baseband chip is from Qualcomm, and the power management chip (PMIC) is Apple’s own product. In 2018, Apple acquired the power management chip business of British chip maker Dialog for $600 million.
Furthermore, the report stated that the United States accounted for 32.4% of the total parts of the iPhone 14 Pro Max, South Korea accounted for 24.8%, Japan accounted for 10.9%, Taiwan accounted for 7.2%, mainland China accounted for 3.8%, and others (unknown) accounted for 20.9%.
Last year, the United States accounted for 22.6% of the total parts of the iPhone 13 Pro Max, South Korea accounted for 30.4%, Japan accounted for 14.5%, Taiwan accounted for 8.4%, mainland China accounted for 4.5%, and others (unknown) accounted for 19.6%.
