Apple's next hardware launch event happens on September 12. The venue is Apple Park, but for the non-lucky mortals out there without a media pass, it streams globally starting at 10:30 p.m. on Apple's website and YouTube channel.

You can expect four new iPhones in the iPhone 15 series, all with a brand new USB Type-C port at the bottom, just like you'd see on the Androids out there. We are expecting the Apple Watch Series 9 and a second-gen Ultra model, but the changes are minor and the design stays identical.

But let's talk about the elephant in the room here. So, here's the scoop on the upcoming iPhone 15 and its Plus version. Rumor has it that Apple is finally ditching that boat-shaped notch and going for a sleek pill-shaped Dynamic Island look for all four models. Good move, Apple!

Now, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems like the screen refresh rate will still be stuck at 60Hz for the non-Pro trims. But hey, there's some good news too! The camera upgrades are looking pretty promising, and so is the chatter about larger batteries.

The real game-changers are the Pro models. Apple is stepping up its game with some major changes. First off, they're swapping out stainless steel for Titanium. Lighter and sturdier? Count me in! And those slimmer bezels? Gotta love that clean look.

The mute switch might be replaced with a single button. Plus, charging speeds are getting a much-needed upgrade. About time, Apple!

The primary and telephoto camera hardware is getting some major refinements. And brace yourselves, folks, because we might just see some new colors too. Grey, sand pink, and deep blue? Yep, that’s what the rumors say.

Now, let's talk performance. The A17 chip, based on the 3nm process, is expected to deliver a big leap in performance and battery efficiency. But here's the real kicker.

Apple is finally saying goodbye to the proprietary Lightning port and embracing USB Type-C ports. It's about time, Apple! And get this, they're even color-matching the charging cables. Just like the colorful new Macs.

There's a catch. The non-Pro iPhones will be limited to USB 2.0 standards. Not the fastest, but hey, it'll do the job. Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 Pro duo might just get the Thunderbolt port perk.

So, there you have it, folks. The lowdown on the upcoming iPhone 15. Apple is making some bold moves, and I'm here for it. Just prep your wallets for a price shocker!
