Apple Far Out September event times, details and how to watch

Apple’s next big event is right around the corner, as on Wednesday, September 7 the company is holding its ‘Far Out’ event, where we’re expecting to see the iPhone 14 line, among numerous other new products.

Yes, it's going to be a smorgasbord of new products, Tim Cook talking up Apple's exploits (almost certainly including how much money it's paid developers over the years) and general updates over where Apple is on things like environmental issues, over the course of approximately 90 minutes.

But what about how to watch the Apple Far Out event for yourself, along with what time it actually kicks off... and what can you actually expect to see there too?

From smartphones to wearables and beyond it’s expected to be a packed show, so read on for all the information you need to ensure you don’t miss out.

What time is Apple’s Far Out event - including UK and Australia?

The Apple Far Out event is set to start at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST on September 7 – that’s 3am on September 8 for those in Australia’s AEST time zone.

So not the most sociable of times for those in Australia, but an ideal time for a post-work tune in if you’re in the UK.

It will likely last between one and two hours (and, given we're expecting to see up to eight new devices, it'll surely be very close to the top end of that estimate).

So make sure you've settled down with some good snacks and a range of hydration options... and spare a thought for those having to live blog the whole experience.

How to watch Apple’s Far Out September event

If you want to watch Apple’s Far Out event that will be easy to do. The simplest way is just to head to YouTube, where Apple will be live streaming the show.

Handily, the YouTube live stream page for this is already up, so you can set a reminder on the page or just bookmark it ready to go.

To make things even easier you can watch the event from the embedded YouTube video below, so you don't even need to leave this page.

You’ll also be able to watch the event on Apple’s website, which also has a page up for the event already, or from the Apple TV app – which doesn’t have a page up yet - or on the Apple Developer app, which we’d say is the most niche way to tune in.

And remember, unlike in years gone by, this isn't an event that's locked to just those on an Apple device with the Safari browser - it's open to everyone now, so there's no reason not to watch it.

What to expect at Apple’s Far Out September event

We’re expecting to see a lot at Apple’s Far Out event, but the iPhone 14 line is sure to be the star of the show. This is thought to include not just the iPhone 14 itself but also an iPhone 14 Pro, an iPhone 14 Pro Max, and – new this year – an iPhone 14 Max or iPhone 14 Plus.

That last model is said to be basically a standard iPhone 14 but with a larger 6.7-inch screen, and is thought to be landing in place of an iPhone 14 mini.

Most of the upgrades will reportedly be limited to the Pro models, with rumors of a new 48MP main camera, a cut-out in the screen rather than a notch, and a more powerful chipset. Either most or all iPhone 14 models might get a larger battery than their predecessors though.

We’re also expecting to see the Apple Watch 8, the Apple Watch SE 2, and an Apple Watch Pro. Leaks suggest the SE 2 might get a new chipset and not much else, while the Apple Watch 8 might additionally get some new features, headlined by a body-temperature sensor.

The Apple Watch 8 Pro might get the same features as the Apple Watch 8, but paired with a bigger screen and battery, along with a more rugged and premium build, including a titanium case.

That’s not all though, as according to some sources, Apple will also be unveiling the AirPods Pro 2, complete with improved active noise cancelation and possibly hi-res audio support, but probably not much change to the design from the original AirPods Pro.

It’s not impossible that other things will be announced as well, such as the HomePod 2 or AirPods 4, but they currently look less far less likely. If anything were to come in the HomePod world, it would likely be a new HomePod mini as that's proved more popular, it seems.

Beyond hardware, we'll probably also see iOS 16 launch in finished form (complete with the always-on display that's going to percolate through the iPhone 14 Pro line-up) - though iPadOS 16 is confirmed to be landing slightly later.

While lots is expected at Apple’s Far Out event, there are also some high-profile devices that we’re not expecting to see.

Chief among these are new iPads, despite the fact that an iPad Pro (2022) and new iPad (2022) are both likely to land soon.

That’s because leaks currently suggest these will land at a separate event in October – which could make sense, since Wednesday’s launch already sounds potentially overstuffed.

These iPads might land alongside a new Mac Mini, new Mac Pro and a new MacBook Pro if Mark Gurman – a journalist and leaker with a great track record for Apple information – is to be believed.

We probably won’t see the launch of the long-rumored Apple VR headset at either event – with 2023 currently looking more likely, though you never know, it might at least get teased this year.

Other devices like the next iPad mini and the iPhone SE 4 probably also won’t land before 2023, or potentially even later in the case of the SE 4.
