Invite for Apple's September 2023 event.

It’s official. After months upon months of speculation, we now know when Apple will announce its latest batch of iPhones, Apple Watches, and more. On August 29, Apple sent out press invites for its latest event, which is set to take place on September 12, 2023.

The event invite shows the Apple logo at the top, stylized with what looks like grains of sand in gray, blue, and silvery colors. This is almost certainly a nod to the iPhone 15 Pro, which is heavily rumored to come in black, silver, gray, and blue colors this year. Below the Apple logo is similarly-colored text that reads “Wonderlust.”

The Apple Watch Ultra's side and Digital Crown,

Replacing the Apple Watch Ultra will be a tough task. At launch, it was marketed as an outdoor adventure smartwatch with all the right features and materials. It’s a fantastic device, but the high price and large size make it unsuitable for some people. Nevertheless, it earned a 5/5 score in our review and has continued to impress.

What can Apple do to enhance the second version of the Apple Watch Ultra? Rumors suggest there won’t be too many changes compared to the current model. And yet, we still have our expectations, which you can read more about below.

The Dynamic Island was the biggest iPhone mistake in years

In 2017, just in time for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple revealed the iPhone X alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. While the iPhone 8 series retained the Home button, the iPhone X was the first iPhone to get rid of the classic button altogether and introduce Face ID to replace Touch ID.

But along with it came the notch at the top of the display, which housed the selfie camera and Face ID sensor. My initial thought upon seeing the notch for the first time was, “Wow, that’s ugly.” I didn’t even buy the iPhone X at the time, instead opting for the iPhone 8.
