Folks love to look at Apple’s occasion invitations searching for hints of what is going to be unveiled. The starry invitation to the September 7 Far Out occasion that went out Wednesday would possibly drop a clue to a number of long-rumored options lastly coming to the iPhone 14.
And, in fact, we’ve seen some intentionally foolish solutions for what the picture and theme are hinting at.
Or the Apple emblem made out of stars may very well be merely a cool-looking picture. (There are new wallpapers for many who assume so.)
Is that this a touch? Possibly.
Apple actually doesn’t have to make use of its occasion invitations to drop hints. There have been loads of occasions the iPhone-maker didn’t do any such factor.
However that’s not all the time the case. The iPhone 12 was the primary iOS machine with super-fast 5G wi-fi and it’s no coincidence it was unveiled at an occasion with a “Hello, Pace” theme. And the multicolored emblem used for the April 2021 occasion pointed to the numerous iMac colours introduced that day. The theme for the March 2022 occasion was “peek efficiency,” and it introduced the M1 Extremely, the quickest Apple processor ever.
Studying the celebs?
The iPhone 14 is sort of actually on the agenda for the September occasion, and it doesn’t take a giant leap to guess an Apple emblem manufactured from stars is a clue that the upcoming handset’s digital camera may have an astrophotography mode.
There’ve been rumors and hypothesis for years of iPhone getting a devoted mode for taking footage of the moon and stars. Particularly as Google Pixel fashions already profit from this function.
Photographing celestial objects with an iPhone is feasible, but it surely’s not for amateurs. An astrophotography mode within the iPhone 14 (or iPhone 14 Professional) digital camera would doubtless make this one thing anybody may do.
Speaking to satellites?
The theme of Apple’s September 7 occasion is “far out.” Add within the starry emblem, and a few guessed that it is a trace that the iPhone 14 will supply direct satellite tv for pc communication.
Dependable sources mentioned in 2021 that future Apple handsets will be capable to change texts and presumably telephone calls with satellites. This might enable customers to succeed in out for emergency assist in locations with no mobile service.
Much less-serious solutions
From the not-meant-to-be-taken-seriously pile, we’ve got a suggestion from Cult of Mac‘s personal Leander Kahney that the emblem “exhibits an Apple-shaped black gap for all of your cash!” Our author D. Griffin Jones then couldn’t resist displaying what an precise Apple-shaped black gap would appear like. (See above.)
Twitter made its personal model, too. Tag a tweet with #AppleEvent and a small Apple emblem stuffed with stars might be mechanically appended.
Mark Gurman from Bloomberg steered a doable purpose for the “far out” theme through Twitter: “That is the *farthest out* Apple has introduced an occasion that I can recall.” Apple introduced the September 7 occasion a full two weeks earlier than it’s scheduled to start out.
Daring Fireball‘s John Gruber was undoubtedly reaching together with his guess about what the occasion invite would possibly imply,
“One doable studying of the ‘Far Out’ theme is that they’ll be previewing a product — the AR/VR headset — that isn’t coming till subsequent yr, like once they pre-announced Apple Watch in September 2014,” he wrote.
