iOS 16 release date confirmed iPhones, Apple Watches, and AirPod

iOS 16 arrives on Sept. 12. Apple revealed the iOS 16 and WatchOS 9 delivery date Wednesday as a feature of its fall iPhone event.

Apple presented its new iPhone 14 series, three new Apple Watch models, and an update to its renowned AirPods product offering on Wednesday.

Apple unveiled four new smartphones during an event in Cupertino, California, including a 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus and an iPhone 14 Pro that rethinks the notch.

The iPhone 14 and 14 Plus will price $799 and $899, the same as last year's versions. The iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max start at $999 and $1099, respectively.

For Apple, convincing custmer to update products, notably the iPhone, is crucial. This year's economic uncertainties, including predictions of a recession, might complicate the effort.

The iPhone 14's 12 MP camera has more pixels, a quicker aperture, and enhanced sensors. It employs last year's iPhone 13 Pro processor (the A15), the first time in years.

Apple unveiled its updated AirPods Pro, a blockbuster product in recent years.  Each headphone and case makes a noise to help you locate it
