Apple "Far Out" Event Prediction/Wish List Results
Yesterday Apple held their "Far Out" event and I had made some predictions and here are the results.
Four new iPhones, with no iPhone mini
There were four new iPhones, the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. You can still purchase an iPhone 13 mini for $599.
Always On Screen for some, if not all, iPhone 14 models
This one was correct, the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max both have an Always-On display. The display will be able to be reduced down to 1Hz to save battery.
No new iPads and no new Macs
Both of these were correct, because there were no iPads nor any Macs at this event.
New Apple Watch Series 8
There is an Apple Watch Series 8, which is very similar to the Series 7, but does include Crash Detection and a new thermometer designed for recording differences in temperature.
New Apple Watch SE
This is also correct, with the introduction of the 2nd Generation Apple Watch SE. The 2nd Generation Apple Watch SE is available to order and will begin arriving September 16th.
Possible Apple Watch Pro
This was half-right, because there is the Apple Watch Ultra, not the "pro". It is the Apple Watch Ultra. You can order it today and it will be available beginning September 23rd.
Second generation AirPods Pro
There is a pair of second generation AirPods Pro. You can order them starting September 9th and they will begin arriving September 23rd.
I think I got every single one of them correct, which is not likely to happen again in the future. You can read my recap of all of the announcements at the "Far Out" event.
