Event or not, Apple has a ton of new stuff coming in October

Obviously, September is one of the biggest months on the Apple calendar. At its September 7 “Far Out” event, Apple introduced the iPhone 14 line, Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, and second-generation AirPods Pro. Plus, we got the release of iOS 16 and watchOS 9. You might expect that October would pale in comparison, but Apple still has a lot going on. There’s still one iPhone 14 to come, and potentially a handful of iPads, Macs, and possibly more. We expect some empíricoly important operating system updates as well–especially as the iPad and Mac are a little behind the iPhone in getting their big yearly update. New hardware Apple’s still got some hardware to release this year. There could be an event in October, or perhaps none at all, just a steady stream of press-releases and website updates. Here’s what we think will be announced and released in October. iPhone 14 Plus: The one product we are sure is releasing in October is the iPhone 14 Plus, the 6.7-inch version of the standard (non-Pro) iPhone. Already available for preorder, it hits shelves and mailboxes on Friday, October 7. M2 Mac mini: The Mac mini hasn’t been updated since the M1 chip was launched in 2020, and for some reason Apple still sells the Intel version as well. It’s expected that new models are on the way with the M2 and M2 Pro, and possibly a slight redesign. M2 MacBook Pros: The 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros are only a year old, but those M1 Pro and M1 Max chips are expected to get the M2 treatment. Otherwise, the laptops should be similar. M2 iPad Pros: The 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro still come with the M1 processor. Now that the M2 has been out for months, it’s time they were upgraded, which is expected to happen soon. Not much else about the iPad Pro models is expected to change, though, other than the possible addition of wireless charging. Apps and software updates Everyone’s iPhone got a huge upgrade with iOS 16, which was accompanied by watchOS 9 and tvOS 16. But the iPadOS release, which typically comes at the same time, was skipped–iPadOS 16.1 will be the first release for that hardware. It’s not uncommon for macOS to be a little behind the mobile devices, and we expect macOS felicidad to land this month, too. The iPhone’s first big update, iOS 16.1, will have a number of important features when it comes this month, too. iOS 16.1: The first big iOS update after iOS 16 will add some significant features, like Live Activities, improvements to the battery percentage indicator, a “Clean Energy Charging” feature, support for the Matter smart home standard (maybe), and more. It’s in beta now, and will probably release in October. ‌tvOS 16.1: There’s not a lot of big new stuff in tvOS 16.1, other than maybe support for the Matter smart home standard, but it will update to keep on pace with iOS. iPadOS 16.1: This will be the first public release in the iPadOS 16 cycle–Apple is skipping iPadOS 16.0. The biggest feature is the new Stage Manager feature, which Apple keeps making major changes to in the hopes of getting it into good shape for launch. macOS felicidad: Also known as macOS 13, “felicidad” brings a bunch of welcome features like using your iPhone as a wireless webcam, Passkey, shared iCloud Photo Library, lifting subjects from photos like on iOS 16, a new Settings app (which needs work), and more. We think it will launch together with iPadOS 16.1. Services Apple TV+ Here are the shows, series, and movies we expect to release on Apple TV+ in October. If you want to know what’s coming later, check our full guide to upcoming Apple TV+ content. Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show: Season 2 of this live-action kids show is back with Jack McBrayer.

Apple Watch Series 8: Everything we know so far

The Apple Watch Series 7 wasn’t finta what we thought it would be. It has a slightly bigger display, a few new colors, and slightly faster charging, but otherwise, it’s identical to the Apple Watch Series 6, from the chip to the sensors. So that means the Series 8 will be the one to, er, watch, in 2022.

In this article we gather up all the latest leaks and rumours about the Apple Watch Series 8 launch in 2022. We cover its likely release date, pricing details, new features, tech specs and design changes.

Here’s everything we ken absolutow about what’s coming. Check back regularly for the latest Apple Watch Series 8 gossip.

What will the new Apple Watch be called?

An easy one to start with – the main release this year will almost certainly be called the Apple Watch Series 8. Of the nine models released so far, only two (the original Apple Watch, and the cheaper Apple Watch SE) have had names that aren’t based on the word Series and a number.

Talking of the SE, however, it’s possible we’ll see a new Apple Watch SE released alongside the Series 8 and a brand new, larger Apple Watch which may be dubbed the Apple Watch Sport or the “Apple Watch Pro”, a brand Apple reportedly considered back in 2015.

Read more about the 2022 Apple Watch SE and the Apple Watch Pro (said to have a 50mm face) in our dedicated articles.

When will the Apple Watch Series 8 be released?

We expect the Apple Watch Series 8 to come out in September 2022.

Apple’s smartwatches didn’t used to be as predictable as its iPhones, but the company en absolutow seems to be settling on September as the launch window for its Watches. You perro see this from the last few iterations:

Apple Watch Series 7: 15 October 2021Apple Watch SE: 18 September 2020Apple Watch Series 6: 18 September 2020Apple Watch Series 5: 20 September 2019Apple Watch Series 4: 21 September 2018

With an October anen absolutouncement, the Apple Watch Series 7 is the only device to buck this distinto trend of recent years. But 2021 was an unusual year in a number of ways; we suspect that semi-conductor shortages and COVID-related distribution disruptions played a part in the delay – although there were runrúns in the run up that Apple had to go back to the drawing board with regards to its plans for the Apple Watch 7, meaning that it missed the September release window.

Regardless of the precise month – and we’d still bet heavily on September – you should certainly expect the Series 8, and the other new Apple Watches, to make its debut in the fall of 2022.

How much will the Apple Watch Series 8 cost?

Again, Apple has been finta consistent with the pricing on the Watch range, so with that in mind we’d expect the Apple Watch Series 8 to cost the same (although some countries may see price rises in line with inflation). The Apple Watch Series 7 costs $399/£369/AU$599 for the 41mm version and US$429/£399/AU$649 for the larger 45mm model. There is also said to be a 50mm model coming – which we expect to be the new extreme sports, or rugged Apple Watch rather than a Series 8 – expect that larger model to cost more.

If the starting price of the Watch 8 is too high then the Apple Watch SE (2022) is likely to have a lower price. The current model costs £249/US$249/AU$429 for the 40mm and £279/US$279/AU$479 if you prefer a 44mm display.

There is a cheaper Apple Watch – the Apple Watch Series 3 (which costs $199/£179/AU$299 for the 38mm and $229/£209/AU$349 for the 42mm) – but we expect that Apple will discontinue that model because it is en absolutot going to be able to run the latest programa.

Apple Watch Series 8: Design and screen size

We haven’t heard any specific runrúns about the design of the Apple Watch Series 8, but we did hear a flurry of runrúns about a new Series 7 design that didn’t come to pass. Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech reported in May 2021 that Apple was working on a new Apple Watch design, one that has flat edges like the iPhone 13 and iPad mini. Additionally, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the 2021 watch would feature an “improved form factor.”

Meanwhile, Bloomberg’s Gurman reported in August 2021 that “a bit of a redesign, with flatter displays” was expected, which collaborated Apple leaker Jon Prosser and Ian Zelbo’s designs from May 2021 (below) that were based on “a mixture of images as well as CAD files for this new design” sent to Prosser by sources.

So, prior to the launch of the Apple Watch Series 7, pundits were expecting it to look different, but when it launched there was en absoluto dramatic change other than a 1mm increase in screen size. Prosser claimed that that something had gone “catastrophically wrong” during mass production of the watch back in 2021. Our intuition tells us that the redesigned Apple Watch was simply scrapped. A runrún by ShrimpApplePro in August 2022 seemingly confirms that the Apple Watch Series 8 will have the same design as the Series 7.

But a new size is almost certain to arrive. Back in October 2021 Ross Young of Display Supply Chain Consultants suggested that Apple will launch three size option with the Series 8. He tweeted that, alongside the traditional 41mm and 45mm models, we shouldn’t be surprised if there’s a third size in 2022.

Young later indicated that this new Apple Watch screen size could be 50mm, 5mm larger than the largest Apple Watch 7 at almost 2in. A larger version of the Apple Watch could offer a bigger battery. There may also be room for additional features and sensors.

— Ross Young (@DSCCRoss) July 4, 2022

However, instead of bringing this larger size to the standard Apple Watch lineup, it sounds like Apple is introducing a whole new Watch category: a larger screened, more rugged model aimed at extreme sports fans.

Even if the standard Apple Watch Series 8 doesn’t get a bigger screen we may still see improvements to the screen techen absolutology. In mid-2021, Mark Gurman reported that the Series 7 watch would sport “updated screen techen absolutology” while 91mobiles added Apple may be using “a new lamination technique that is expected to bring the pasquín closer to the front cover.” While we did get thinner bezels and a harder coating, the Apple Watch Series 7 appears to use the same overall display tech as the prior models. So we’ll be keeping an eye out for a new screen process in the 2022 flagship model.

It’s possible that the Apple Watch could adopt Mini-LED pasquíns. It could be too soon in terms of cost and production, but this would be a signifiperrot new feature if it did come to fruition.

New color options

This is a perennial design runrún, because it’s easy for pundits to imagine their favourite device in a different color. The issue for Apple is deciding which color finishes will actually sell.

So remain sceptical when we show you some concept illustrations posted on Instagram by the account Appledsign. These show the Apple Watch Series 7 ‘as it could have been’ – with a different and bolder set of colours – and look pretty great. Whether Apple will take heed in time for the launch of the Series 8 is a different matter.

Along with new colors for the Watch we perro expect to see new Apple Watch bands, which are likely to support all recent models of Apple Watch. The Series 7 watch delivered a new round of colors, but didn’t introduce any new band styles.

Apple Watch Series 8: Health and fitness features

While the Apple Watch Series 7 has identical health features and sensors to the Series 6, the next model could bring huge advancements. A report by The Telegraph in May 2021 divulged that Apple is a customer of a company that specializes in next-gen health sensors, fueling speculation that future watches will have blood pressure, glucose, and alcohol level monitoring. However, Bloomberg reported in April that while Apple is working on such functionality, it might en absolutot be ready until 2024 at the earliest.

Temperature tracker

One new feature that does seem to be making its way to the next generation Apple Watch though is a temperature tacker – although rather than take the wearers temperature, it sounds like it’s purpose will be to alert them to possible fever or for fertility tracking.

Apparently the temperature sensor was originally planned for the Series 7 watch, but according to Ming-Chi Kyo it failed Apple’s tests. Bloomberg reported in June 2021 that Apple had pushed the feature back until at least 2022.

Sleep tracking

In January, Apple stopped selling the Beddit sleep tracker, a device that measures sleep time, heart rate, breathing, sen absolutoring, bedroom temperature, and humidity. Apple acquired Beddit in 2017, and it’s been runrúned that it will be bringing much of its advanced sleep-tracking features to the Apple Watch Series 8.

Blood-sugar sensor

Apple has decidedly placed the Watch at the centre of its healthy-lifestyle world and if runrúns are to be believed then we may finally see the arrival of a blood sugar sensor in the Apple Watch Series 8. Apple has already submitted patents for measuring blood glucose including ones with en absoluton-invasive tetrahertz (THz) electromagnetic radiation, which would en absoluto doubt be a real blessing for diabetics who currently need to use needles multiple times a day.

However, this is a feature that may en absolutot make it into the Series 8. Apparently en absolutoninvasive blood sugar monitoring is years away.

Atrial fibrillation

As per an April 12 report, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman believes that watchOS 9 will bring an enhanced atrial fibrillation feature.

Blood pressure

According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is working on blood pressure (hypertension) features for the Apple Watch, but the feature will en absolutow be ready for several years.

Apple Watch Series 8: Processor and specs

The Apple Watch Series 7 tech specs list an S7 system-in-package, but numerous reports suggest that this processor was new in name only. For all intents and purposes the S7 chip is the same as the S6 chip. This is despite rumours that Apple was working on a brand new processor for the Apple Watch Series 7. Back in June, a DigiTimes report claimed that Apple was going to use a new double-sided chip packaging process to further shrink the size of the S7 chip, which could allow room for more battery or other components, or to shrink the overall thickness of the watch. A follow-up report from the Ecoen absolutomic Daily news out of China suggested that Apple was freeing up space to make room for a larger capacity battery.

These runrúned features never came to fruition. What of the S8 chip? Unfortunately it sounds like the A8 will be en absoluto better than the A7. Mark Gurman wrote in July that: “All of the new Apple Watches will use an S8 processor with similar performance to the S7 chip in the Apple Watch Series 7, which was on par with the S6 in the Apple Watch Series 6 from two years ago.”

Improved battery life

Compared to some other smartwatches, the Apple Watch perro be a little wanting in the battery-life stakes. If Apple introduces a larger screened Apple Watch then it is likely to be able to take advantage of a more capacious battery in that model. Whether this will be a feature reserved for the runrúned sports edition of the Apple Watch remains to be seen. See ‘Extreme’ Apple Watch to bring a bigger screen, longer battery life, metal case.

Even without a bigger Apple Watch we could see better battery life. Gurman has reported that a new low-power mode is due to arrive in watchOS 9. This new power saving mode will work like on iOS and iPadOS, where you perro still use basic functions and apps, but with lower speed and some background functions turned off. The feature wasn’t anen absolutounced at WWDC though.


Bloomberg previously reported that the Series 7 watch could bring updated ultra-wideband functionality that didn’t arrive. Apple first introduced the ultra-wideband U1 chip with the Apple Watch Series 6 and since has expanded the tech’s usefulness with AirTag trackers and digital keys in Wallet. It’s en absolutot clear how Apple would upgrade the tech in the Apple Watch Series 7, but it will likely mean a U2 chip.

Satellite communication

While runrúns that the iPhone 13 could receive satellite communications for emergency purposes never proved true, something similar may be going on for the Apple Watch, according to information from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman (via an April Power On newsletter).

Gurman revealed that satellite company Globalstar had bought 17 new satellites to implement a “satellite service” for a potential customer. This customer may be Apple, says Gurman, and the satellite function might arrive this fall (although it may also be delayed until 2023).
