iPhone 14 Features
Nothing ground breaking here, hopefully saving that for the updated Pro models.

Apple Watch Series 8 overview
Here is everything new with the series 8, a lot of these updates come with watchOS 9 and will be available on earlier watch models too.

Here we go!
Looks like a prerecorded stream but Tim Cook welcomes in-person guests to their seats
This starry montage is giving off big James Webb Telescope image vibes.
Big change to this event from the previous couple of years is the media have been invited to the Steve Jobs Theater in person.
We don't know yet if the whole presentation will be prerecorded or if we'll return to the stage presentations we were used to before the global pandemic hit. Not long left to find out though.

Timmy Cook teases today's event with a tweet from Apple Park
Good morning! Looking forward to a stellar Apple event. pic.twitter.com/8rwWBwX79V— Tim Cook (@tim_cook) September 7, 2022
Interesting announcement from Meta regarding their high-end VR headset
Whilst not related to today's event, Apple is still expected to announce their own VR headset in the near future. Given Apple are known to also hold an October event, it's not improbable they would announce the VR headset as a "One more thing..." at that October event. The date of which is still unknown, but is likely to be October 12th.
Your move Apple...
Apple Special Event invites for September announcements
Here is a reminder of the Apple Event invites over the years for the iPhone announcement. Which was your favourite/remember most? For us it's the "See you on the 7th" event with that bokeh effect that would go onto be the tease for Portrait Mode on the iPhone 7.
