After weeks of intense speculation and rumors, Apple has finally announced that its next special event will take place on Tuesday, September 14 at at 1 PM ET. The event is called California Streaming, and it will be broadcasted from Apple Park, the corporate headquarters of Apple.

The event invitation page shows a glowing Apple logo floating over a lake against a darkening sky. The logo hides a clever Easter egg that you can reveal by tapping it on an ARKit-compatible iOS device. When you do that, the ARKit viewer pops up, rendering an augmented reality version of the logo over your surroundings. You can then zoom into the logo and enter the image on the invitation page. Pretty cool stuff!

iPhone 13 Will Be The Star Of The Show

It’s no secret that Apple will introduce a new iPhone at this year’s fall event. Apple’s ‌iPhone 13‌ models (a 5.4-inch ‌iPhone 13‌ mini, a 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 13‌, a 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro, and a 6.7-inch ‌iPhone 13‌ Pro Max) are expected to be very similar to the iPhone 12 models that were released last year.

The biggest change will likely be the 120Hz ProMotion display, but Apple will almost certainly reserve it for the Pro models. Besides a high refresh rate screen, Apple customers can look forward to a smaller notch, the A15 chip, faster 5G technology, and improved cameras.

More Announcements To Look Forward To

Besides the refresh of the entire iPhone lineup, the California Streaming event is expected to introduce the first redesign of the Apple Watch in years. Thanks to a new lamination technique, the Apple Watch Series 7 will bring the display closer to the cover glass, making it look even more stunning than before.

The AirPods 3 have reportedly been in mass production since August, so the event provides the perfect opportunity for their introduction. Their design is rumored to be much closer to the AirPods Pro, and they may get active noise cancellation to make the redesign feel more justified.

Emirates Airline To Invest $2 Billion On Major Upgrades

Emirates plans a huge retrofit on its fleet and an upgrade to the inflight experience.

Emirates Airline has just announced plans to improve its inflight experience for passengers. The carrier has budgeted $2 billion to refit the interiors of over 120 of its aircraft, aiming for a more modern aesthetic for cabins, along with better food choices, modern inflight entertainment options, and a significant service overhaul.

Emirates is well known for its premium service, so this overhaul is an ambitious decision, as many other airlines are trying their hardest to increase revenues and reduce costs.

“Emirates is flying against the grain and investing to deliver ever better experiences to our customers. Through the pandemic we’ve continued to launch new services and initiatives to ensure our customers travel with the assurance and ease, including digital initiatives to improve customer experiences on the ground. Now we’re rolling out a series of intensive programmes to take Emirates’ signature inflight experiences to the next level,” says Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline.

The investment aims to ensure Emirates stays on top form, with many of the upgrades scheduled to materialize quickly. For the physical refit, aircraft are scheduled to enter the Emirates Engineering Center in November. So what can passengers expect once work is complete? The most significant change will be to aircraft interiors, where flyers of all classes will immediately spot new flooring, paneling, and reupholstered seats.

As well as a physical overhaul, the airline plans to upgrade entertainment systems, adding a “Cinema in the Sky” experience, complete with a bespoke app. In addition, better meal choices will reflect changing dietary preferences, including a new vegan menu and a nod to sustainability — though there will remain a strong luxury vibe to the proceedings, as the company has entered an exclusive agreement to offer Dom Perignon vintage champagne on board, as well as delicacies such as Persian caviar.

Though many of the improvements may seem trivial, Emirates is hoping that along with a huge cabin overhaul, their overall flight experience will continue to make travel a pleasurable experience, elevating their service above the competition.
