[Update] Date of Apple September and October Keynote

Apple's September 2023 event, set to unveil the new iPhone 15 and new Apple Watch Series 9, may be complemented by another keynote in October 2023. New Mac and iPad models will then be shown - the M3 chip could celebrate its debut. The focus will initially be on the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro. Not only should the basic model now also receive the Dynamic Island as a notch replacement. All models in the iPhone 15 series should also have USB-C instead of Lightning as the physical connection. Furthermore, the silent switch should be replaced with an action button. You can find further details, rumors and detailed articles on the topic in this article.

Note: This post has been around for several years and will be updated from time to time before Apple's fall keynotes.

Apple keynote(s) in autumn 2023: Only iPhone event and then press releases?

The iPhone 15 (Pro) certainly deserves a keynote and then a hands-on on site at Apple Park. Because it should bring some exciting innovations compared to its predecessors. DThe event should be – according to the current state of knowledge – take place on September 12, 2023. The event will according to Apple's official announcement take place on September 12, 2023. The following adjustments are expected for the new iPhone 15 (Pro):

  • USB-C instead of Lightning connector for charging and data exchange
  • An action button with selectable functions to replace the mechanical mute switch
  • The standard model and the iPhone 15 Plus should have one Dynamic Islands to get
  • The Pro models will get the new A17 chip, while the standard models will get the A16 chip of last year's Pro models (iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max) should receive
  • The display edges of the Pro models are said to be noticeably thinner than their predecessors
  • The iPhone 15 Pro Max is said to get a periscope camera for 5x to 10x optical zoom
  • The Pro models could also Titan– instead of stainless steel housing and up to 2 TB of storage

The new Apple Watch Series 2023 will also be presented as part of the September 9 keynote, as well as possibly new versions of the Apple Watch SE and the Apple Watch Ultra. However, it is not yet clear whether new Mac models will also be presented in the same context or whether they will be presented with the M3 chip in October. Since the principle of Apple silicon is clear and the new M-chip versions do not represent too great an innovation compared to the predecessors, Apple could also be satisfied with press releases for the presentation of the M3, the Macs equipped with it and the iPad Pro with M3.

Let's see what Apple will decide.

Apple September Keynote 2019

Update: The summary of the iPhone 11 event can be found with this link.

Update end

It now seems almost clear on what date the Apple September Keynote 2019 will take place. The iPhone Keynote 2019 should take place on September 09th or rather on September 10.09.2019th, 11. This is indicated by a suspected leak at the start of sales of the Apple iPhone 20 on September 2019, 13.09.2019. This is a Friday. The pre-sale will start on the previous Friday - if you stick to the reinforced samples at Apple. And since it is September 9th, 11 and the pre-order for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Co. usually starts in the same week in which the keynote takes place, Monday or Tuesday are accepted for the same. Wednesday can be excluded because of the anniversary of XNUMX/XNUMX. This results in the following data:

  • Apple September Keynote: September 09th or 10.09.2019th, XNUMX
  • Pre-order Apple iPhone 11 / XI / Max: from 13.09.2019
  • Buy Apple iPhone XI / 11 / Max: from 20.09.2019/XNUMX/XNUMX
