Apple September 2022 Event

What's the Apple news? What did Apple release at their event? When are the new products available? Where are the latest products available?


Apple live streamed a product release and press event titled "Far Out" on September 7, 2022, at 12 pm CDT. The event included the release of the 2nd generation of AirPods Pro, iPhone 14 and 14 Pro Series, and an entire Apple Watch lineup update. Apple also released updates to AppleCare+ and Apple Fitness+ alongside the Main Event.

 

AirPods Pro Updates:

The 2nd generation of AirPods Pro has a similar design as the previous model while sporting significant improvements under the hood. Active Noise cancellation quality is doubled with the new H2 chip in AirPods Pro and a new three-microphone array. Transparency mode has also been updated to Adaptive Transparency, which boosts sounds you need to hear and reduces other loud sounds that may drown out conversation. With the New H2 Chip--and help from iPhone--Spacial audio can be personalized using Face ID to create a custom Spacial Audio experience.

The Case for AirPods also received some upgrades. You will find a lanyard loop on the side of the case; therefore, you could attach the case to any lanyard for easier portability. If you are prone to losing your AirPods case and didn't attach a lanyard, the case now offers precision finding with compatabile iPhones via the Find My app. Moreover, there is a built-in speaker for easy discovery--similar to AirTag--and audible notifications when AirPods battery is getting low.

Apple now includes an XS ear tip for AirPods, which joins the S, M and L sizes already available. Lastly, the Feature we are most excited about is touch controls on AirPods! A capacitive touch sensor for swipe volume control is built into the Force Sensor. With the 2nd Generation of AirPods Pro, you can start, stop, skip, control volume, and use Siri, all without using your iPhone.

AirPods Pro 2nd Generation joins the Existing AirPods lineup of AirPods 2, AirPods 3, and AirPods Max. Any Purchase of New AirPods will also come with 6 months of Apple Music for free for New Apple Music subscribers.

AirPods Pros Gen 2 will be available from Apple Authorized Resellers--such as MacMan--orders start September 9 and will be available on September 23. AirPods Pro will retail for the same $249 price as the previous generation.
