There are few things you can count on in this mixed-up world. Thankfully, a new iPhone each fall is a part of that glancingly short list. You can’t set your watch to it exactly — the date generally move around within a couple of weeks. And this year’s is — surprise — a rare Wednesday event, owing to the Labor Day holiday here in the U.S. This time out, the Apple Event is set to go down 10 a.m. PDT/ 1 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 7.

Last month, the company sent out invites bearing the words “Far Out” and a galaxy in the form of the Apple logo. These things often carry some deeper meaning/offer hints into what to expect. We recently pulled together some of the most credible rumors to help you (and us) prep for the big event.
The top-level expectations to come out of the Apple Event are:
- The iPhone 14, in four different configurations.
- A slightly redesigned Apple Watch Series 8 with more health data.
- New M2 Macs.
- Release dates for iOS 16, macOS 13 Ventura, watchOS 9 and tvOS 16 (iPadOS 16.1 will have to wait a bit).
- There are a slew of other rumors of varying likelihood, including new iPads, a HomePod with a display, AirPods Pro 2 and that long, longaawaited AR/VR headset.
