Apple announced on Wednesday that it will hold a flagship product launch event at 1:00 am Beijing time on September 8.
The event, called “FarOut,” will showcase the new iPhone 14 lineup, watches, and other products.
It will be an in-person event at Apple’s Cupertino campus in the U.S., the company’s first major event since the pandemic hit two years ago.
Apple will also live stream the launch online.

According to reports, the next iPhone 14 will be produced in India about two months after being produced in China, and there will be four models: the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, the new 6.7-inch iPhone 14, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max.
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 14 base model is rumored to be priced at $799, the same price as the iPhone 13.
The tech giant may stop making the 5.4-inch iPhone mini this year.
While the Pro models will be powered by the A16 Bionic chipset, the non-Pro models will retain the A15 chip.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will combine a round hole punch cutout and a pill-shaped cutout for the camera setup and Face ID feature.
A recent report claims that Samsung Display will apply different grades of material on the OLED panels it manufactures for the upcoming iPhone 14 series, depending on the model tier.
It will use its latest and most advanced material set for high-end iPhone 14 models, and its previous-generation material set for lower-end models. The move is to save costs.
The standard iPhone 14 models are not expected to change much, but the iPhone 14 Pro models will include updated camera technology.
There are currently three Apple Watch models in development, including the new Apple Watch Series 8, an updated Apple Watch SE, and a new Pro version, which is expected to feature a larger body, an updated design, and a sturdy build.
Meanwhile, a recent report said that despite analysts’ forecasts, the tech giant appeared confident and reportedly asked its suppliers to produce at least 90 million new-generation iPhones.
In fact, Apple expects to assemble 220 million iPhones in 2022.
