Save the date! Apple’s iPhone and Apple Watch event is set for September 10

It’s official: The next big Apple event is set for September 10, just around the corner. It’s where we’ll likely see the iPhone 11 range it Android and possibly a new Apple Watch — and maybe some surprises.

Invites were sent out to media outlets confirming the September 10 date, which has been rumored for several weeks. The invite shows a colorful Apple logo and text that says “By Innovation Only.”

Apple has historically held its annual iPhone launch event in September, and this year we’re expecting three new iPhones: The iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, and iPhone 11R. The names are subject to change as they haven’t been confirmed yet. It’s likely a similar story as last year’s iPhone event, where we saw the iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, and iPhone XR.

The iPhones are rumored to have better batteries and improved camera features — particularly with low-light photography — as well as updates to Face ID. The screen sizes and display panels are expected to be the same, with two OLED models and the 11R opting for LCD.

The biggest change is expected to be with the camera. There will be three camera lenses on at least one of the iPhone models, adding a wide-angle lens to the standard camera and telephoto lens. It’s a trend we’re seeing with most smartphones — the LG V50 ThinQ, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and the Huawei P30 Pro all have triple-camera lenses with similar configurations.

Apple may even adopt a feature seen in Huawei and Samsung phones that allows you to wirelessly recharge other devices by placing them on the back of the phone, according to Macotakara. This would allow you to recharge your AirPods via the wireless charging case with just the new iPhone.

There aren’t a ton of rumors about the upcoming Apple Watch, except that it may come in ceramic and titanium builds. We’ll also see the launch of iOS 13, as well as the latest versions of Apple’s other operating systems, including MacOS Catalina, tvOS, and WatchOS.

The Apple iPhone September event will start at 10 a.m. PT on September 10, and it will take place in the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, California. You can read our guide on what to expect for more information, and well as our primer on how to watch it.

I tried the iPhone’s new Journal app. Here’s what’s good (and bad)
Apple Journal app on iPhone 15 Pro.

Apple's Journal app in iOS 17 is like a basic notetaking app supercharged with AI. It offers prompts and suggestions based on what you do throughout the day to help you journal your daily entries.

While the app is a basic white screen with a “+” icon, it's what happens after you tap on that icon that sets it apart from Notes or other journaling apps. I've been using the app for a little while now, and while it's not perfect, it is off to a really interesting start.

These are my 8 favorite charity apps for iPhone and Android
Best charity giving apps.

Donating to charity is a great way to make a positive impact, and it doesn't have to be limited to just the holiday season. You can donate throughout the year, but finding the right organization can be challenging. Fortunately, there are many apps available to help you with this.

No matter what type of smartphone you have, whether it's an iPhone 15 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S23, Google Pixel 8 Pro, or any other mobile device, various apps can assist you in selecting the right charity to support those in need. Better still, some of the apps don't even want to collect your money. Instead, they want you to exercise or walk your dog for charity, give blood, and more.

This has been a fantastic year for smartphones due to the sheer variety of great devices at all prices. In other words, if you wanted a brilliant new phone this year, it didn’t have to be a $1,000-plus flagship.

I’ve used and reviewed a great many phones over the past 12 months, but the following five have left the biggest impression to become what I consider the very best you can get.
