When is Apple's September event?

The Apple September launch event is less than two weeks away, and the iPhone-maker is expected to launch its next generation of iPhones, the Apple Watch, iPad and more. The event is expected to be held on September 14, and like recent Apple launches, this one will be virtual-only, too. Business Insider IndiaApple September launch event: iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7, iPad mini and everything else we know so far

Apple is planning to do something that it's not done before.

We're going to get an x.8 release for iOS, in the form of iOS 14.8.

Kick off the new year with some of the very best productivity apps available for the iPhone and iPad. Deleting a built-in app is the same as deleting any other app, just press and hold on the icon on the Home screen until they jiggle, and then tap the X. Press the Home button when you're done. (Updated Jan 2, 2017)

There's never been an x.8 release of iOS before.

It's no secret that each major iOS release seems to spin off more and more update versions downstream in the form of patches and new features. But iOS 14 is also different in that Apple has said that it will allow users to stay on this release and still get patches after iOS 15 has been released.

We're currently on iOS 14.7.1, but for weeks now we've been hearing about an iOS 14.8. What's weird is that there's no beta and only speculation about what the update might contain.

The name is buried in the Xcode development environment, telltale traces of its existence have been uncovered in the logs of websites, and I've had independent confirmation from two sources at Apple that it both exists and it's landing.

And it could be landing as soon as this week.

A contact at Apple says that it's likely to be a bugfix that also contains the framework to allow iPhone users to stick with iOS 14 once iOS 15 is released later this month.

But what about Apple's child sexual abuse material (CSAM) detection system? Is Apple planning to roll this out to iPhones running iOS 14?

According to what I've been told, that's unlikely at this stage. However, given that iOS 14 will carry on getting updates beyond September of this year, its inclusion in a future update can't be ruled out.

So, we're entering uncharted territory. Both in the form of an x.8 release, and Apple making it easier for users to stick with an older iOS release.

We're only a few weeks away from a formal announcement, and that means even more frequent leaks and rumors. Here's what we know.

Apple has announced the acquisition of classical music streaming service Primephonic.

Apple's 2021 iPhone refresh is on deck and so are a lot of business-friendly software updates.

Apple's huge September: Here's everything that's coming

Macworld 02 September, 2021 - 05:10am

September may hold some other surprises, too. We’re expecting new MacBook Pros this year, perhaps new AirPods, and maybe even new iPads. Any of those could be announced in September. Beyond that, there are lots of big Apple TV+ shows and Apple Arcade games on the way.

September is usually the month in which Apple announces new iPhones and Apple Watches during an event on Tuesday or Wednesday of the second full week of September. That’s the 14th or 15th, this year. We haven’t seen an invitation or “save the date” type announcement yet, but with the events being virtual instead of in person at the Steve Jobs Theater, such marketing materials can go out only a week before. Last year, the COVID pandemic delayed the iPhone announcements until October, but we think it will probably be back on track for September this year.

iPhone 13: Rumors say the major new features of the iPhone 13 will be 120Hz ProMotion support, greatly improved cameras, and the A15 processor. For more, check out our iPhone 13 rumor roundup.

Apple Watch Series 7: The next Apple Watch is expected to change the design for the first time in a long time. There will be flat edges and larger displays with smaller bezels, and possibly multiple colors to choose from. Catch up on all the rumors in our Apple Watch Series 7 rumor roundup.

AirPods 3: Among the many products rumored to be released through the end of the year, the next-generation AirPods (colloquially called AirPods 3) seems most likely to make a debut sometime in September. They should feature a new design with a different buds shape and shorter stems, similar to AirPods Pro. Our next-generation AirPods rumor roundup has all the details.

MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch: There are apparently new MacBook Pro models on the way, with more powerful Apple Silicon chips and huge design and feature changes. We don’t expect Apple to announce them in September, but you never know!

iPad and iPad mini: The base model iPad is due for an update, and we’ve heard rumors of a new iPad mini (with a flat-edge design and Touch ID side button similar to the iPad Air) for quite a while. Apple could announce these in September or later in the year.

Apple always releases most of its new yearly operating system updates in September, and we don’t think this year will be any different.

With iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, Apple’s adding a heap of new features that will arrive alongside the new iPhone. There are changes to Safari, Focus modes, Live Text, several new sharing features, improvements to Wallet, Messages, and more. Our iOS 15 superguide has all of our coverage so far.

The initial release of macOS 12 Monterey will probably come at nearly the same time as iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, but it’s not unusual for the Mac operating system update to follow a week or two behind. That might potentially push the release into October or even November, but there’s really no way to know until Apple makes an announcement.

Typically, the new tvOS release comes at the same time as iOS and iPadOS. The tvOS 15 release has some new sharing and HomeKit features, and Spatial Audio with AirPods, but it’s a smaller update than in years past.

Just like tvOS, the new watchOS is usually timed to coincide with iOS updates. So we expect watchOS 8 to release right with iOS 15 (give or take a day). It’s a relatively minor release, with Mindfulness features added to Health, Focus modes, and a handful of small changes. But we expect more new features to be a part of the Apple Watch Series 7 release.

A new service from Apple, iCloud+ is part of all paid iCloud plans—as long as you spend at least $0.99 a month for 50GB of iCloud storage, you’ll have iCloud+. In essence, it’s a way to re-brand paying for iCloud storage space, as it comes with a set of other features.

iCloud+ will let you create aliases to hide your email, store HomeKit Secure Video in your iCloud account (it doesn’t count against your paid storage), use a custom email domain for your iCloud mail accounts, and use iCloud Private Relay in Safari.

Some of the iCloud+ features may come in an update later this year, but the service as a whole launches together with iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS 12 Monterey.

September is a big month for Apple TV+. Season 2 of See just started up and continues throughout the month, but it’s the launch of several new big programs in September that has us most excited. Check our list of upcoming AppleTV+ shows, series, and movies for everything on the horizon.

9/11: Inside the President’s War Room: A documentary film produced by the BBC, this film takes an inside look at the first 12 hours of the Bush White House 20 years ago during the 9/11 attacks. It was released on September 1.

Come From Away: A stage production of the hit broadway musical lands on September 10.

The Morning Show (Season 2): It took longer than expected for Apple’s biggest launch show to get its second season, thanks in part to disrupted production from the COVID-19 pandemic. Jennifer Anniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon, and Billy Crudup return on September 17.

Foundation: Apple’s big high-budget epic science fiction adaptation of the Isaac Asimov novels. Lee Pace and Jared Harris star when this series debuts on September 24.

The Problem with Jon Stewart: Jon Stewart stepping back in front of the camera for a new regular show is a huge deal. This one-hour show will tackle a single current-affairs issue in each episode, with a focus on the people impacted and those responsible. New episodes will stream every other week. The show premieres on September 30.

Apple releases new games to Apple Arcade on Fridays, but not every Friday is marked by a new game or significant update. Check our Apple Arcade FAQ for a full list of Apple Arcade games and more details on the service. Many games are released with no forewarning, but you’ll often see a couple of projects listed in the Coming Soon section. Some have release dates, but most seem to launch by surprise.

It looks like Apple Arcade releases are finally starting to pick up the pace a little, thanks in part to Apple’s new policy change, whereby existing App Store games can find their way to Arcade with a “+” on the end (and maybe a few tweaks). Here are the titles in the Coming Soon section, many of which should launch in September:

Layton’s Mystery Journey+: This entry in the popular Professor Layton series first landed in the App Store four years ago.

MasterChef: Let’s Cook: A cooking competition game where you get matched with other players from around the world.

Zen Pinball Party: A dozen pinball tables, some featuring Dreamworks and Hasbro brands, with more on the way.

Zookeeper World: Match-3 puzzles combined with zoo building.

Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls: A full-scale Castlevania game first released only in Canada in 2019 as a soft launch, then pulled from the App Store. Now it’s back.

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure: The theme of the popular endless runner provides the template for this match-3 game.

LEGO Star Wars Battles: Real-time PvP battles featuring characters from throughout the Star Wars franchise, all in LEGO form.

Crossy Road+: Sort of an homage to Frogger, Crossy Road was a huge hit when it landed in the app store in 2014.

Apple releases iOS 15 beta 8 to developers as refinement continues

Apple issues eighth developer betas for iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, watchOS 8

AppleInsider 02 September, 2021 - 05:10am

Apple has reached its eighth round of betas, with more builds of iOS 15, iPadOS 15, tvOS 15, and watchOS 8 now available for testing.

The latest builds can be downloaded by developers in the beta-testing scheme via the Apple Developer Center, or as an over-the-air update for hardware already using earlier beta builds. A public beta version of the releases is expected to start arriving soon, and will be available through the Apple Beta Software Program website.

The eighth round takes over from the event, which arrived on August 25. The sixth round was on August 17, the fifth on August 10, August 11 for watchOS 8, and round four was on July 27.

As Apple is anticipated to release the final public versions to accompany its fall product releases, there is a strong possibility there will be at least one more round of betas to go.

In iOS 15, Apple has added Focus modes, along with Live Text OCR, Wallet gains digital ID support, FaceTime and Messages are enhanced, and the Weather and Maps apps are given some improvements. In the fourth beta, it was discovered the Camera app could remove unwanted lens flares from images.

In iPadOS 15, Apple updated multitasking to make it more usable, along with adding home screen widget support, system-wide Quick Note, and the Translate app. Swift Playgrounds also enables app development on the iPad, complete with submissions of apps to the App Store.

For watchOS 8, Apple introduces Tai Chi and Pilates workouts in the Fitness app, respiratory rates for the Sleep app, new mosaic layouts and memories in Photos, and cursor control with the Digital Crown and GIF search to Messages.

AppleInsider, and Apple itself, strongly recommend users don't install the betas on primary devices or hardware they deem as "mission-critical" at all, as there is the highly remote possibility of data loss or other issues. Testers should instead install betas onto secondary or non-essential devices as a safer alternative, and to always make sure there are sufficient backups of important data before updating.

tvOS 15 Public Beta is available for download. 

That was fast. I just upgraded my iPad. No major problems so far. But then, it’s only been a minute.

The Public Beta (8) is out now.

Apple on Wednesday announced that it will soon allow developers of so-called "reader" apps to include an in-app link to set up or manage accounts, a major shift in App Store policy that should alleviate antitrust concerns over anti-steering strategies.

Twitter on Wednesday officially launched its Super Follows feature, which allows creators on the platform to provide exclusive premium content to subscribers.

Spotify is rolling out Blend, a feature of the music streaming service that will create a custom playlist that combines the user's musical tastes with those of a friend.

Klipsch refreshed its T5 II True Wireless earphones to include active noise cancellation, bringing it into the same market as Apple's AirPods Pro. Here's where the newcomer stands against Apple's personal audio offering.

Apple may have market dominance with its AirPods Pro, but neither AirPods Pro nor the new Beats Studio Buds can match the luxurious build quality of Master & Dynamic's new MW08 Sport true wireless earbuds.

With the launch of the Beats Studio Buds, Apple now has a total of four wireless earbuds it sells to consumers. Here's how the newcomers face against AirPods, AirPods Pro, and Beats Powerbeats Pro.

Sony launched the WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds in June, its noise-cancelling rival to the Apple AirPods Pro. Here's how Sony's latest stacks up against Apple's heavy hitter.

In April, Amazon upgraded its Echo Buds to make it a better value-oriented rival to Apple's AirPods. Here's how Amazon's offerings stack up to Apple's AirPods and AirPods Pro.

Apple on Wednesday announced that it will soon allow developers of so-called "reader" apps to include an in-app link to set up or manage accounts, a major shift in App Store policy that should alleviate antitrust concerns over anti-steering strategies.

Twitter on Wednesday officially launched its Super Follows feature, which allows creators on the platform to provide exclusive premium content to subscribers.

Spotify is rolling out Blend, a feature of the music streaming service that will create a custom playlist that combines the user's musical tastes with those of a friend.

On the latest "This Week in Apple," we talk through the likely release dates for "iPhone 13", Apple Watch Series 7, and AirPods 3, explain a possible iPhone price increase, and more.

For mobile creators, storage was always a bottleneck. But thanks to a few recent updates between iPad, iPadOS, and some popular apps, creating an entire video production workflow on external storage is now possible. Here's how to pull it off without needing any internal storage on your iPad.

Apple has begun showing how iCloud+ users will be able to use custom email domains, utilizing other email addresses within the one inbox.

This time on "This Week in Apple," we explain the likelihood of multiple Apple events in September, why 1Password users are rebelling, and what's going on with Apple's latest betas.

Apple Watch Series 6 is getting ready to ring the bell on its one-year birthday. To celebrate, we want to re-review Apple's flagship wearable ahead of the Apple Watch Series 7 release.

One of Apple's most touted features on iPhone 12 — MagSafe — finally makes its way to iPhone 11 thanks to Moment's new premium cases.

Nomad's tempered glass screen protector is designed for the iPhone 12 with minimal bells and whistles, but nails the core functionality.

If you prioritize your iPhone's look and feel above all else but are looking for a way to elevate it further, consider Nomad's latest iPhone 12 accessory, its Leather Skin.

Though its price tag certainly puts it out of the reach of many, Labodet's MagSafe Mask for iPhone 12 is an incredibly unique and smart way to outfit your device.
