All you need to know about the Apple Special Event on Tuesday

Waiting for that new iPhone to upgrade the supercomputer in your pocket? You’ll have to wait no longer. Well, maybe a bit longer as the announcement for Apple’s new phone will be on Tuesday, September 12th in the Steve Jobs Theater. Here’s all you need to know in advance.

Watch the Keynote Live

If you’re in no mood to read all the rumors then there pretty much is only one thing you will need: the live feed. Apple has been good about this in recent years and provided a feed on their own website. You can watch it here at 10:00 PDT, 19:00 GMT or 3:00 AEST.

Be warned though: you’ll need a HLS-supporting browser to watch. So Safari or Edge are going to be your safest bets. Chrome only has partial support so beware.

UPDATE: Here are the highlights from the September event.

Looking back

This obviously isn’t the first time Apple has held one of these events. They have done so every year around this time since 2011.  Back then it was the launch event of the iPhone 4s, right before Steve Jobs passed away.

Last year saw the launch of the Apple iPhone 7, the 7s and the Apple Watch 2.

Here is the complete list of presentations from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. All are available on Youtube. Or just watch this complete playlist:

Before 2011

Before Tim Cook took over as Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs used to do these events. They didn’t have a September event (and 2011’s special event was the 4th of October) back then but they did announce products through the same process.

Steve Jobs would get up on stage and announce whatever revolutionary product Apple had created via the power of a Powerpoint presentation. He did that in such a compelling way that since that day, gurus all over the world started teaching presentation skills ‘Jobs-style’.

Now for 2017

What to expect? Well, the new iPhone 8 obviously. According to Engadget, this new one will be something slightly different and more expensive. This will be the ‘new’ iPhone. However, there are speculations about the ‘updated’ iPhone 7s being a cheaper edition. And there should be an update for the Apple Watch too for wearable fans.

For the real geeks, there are some other rumors like new Airpods, a smart speaker and a new version of the Apple TV which supports 4K and HDR.
