Apple 2022 launches and their prices, including iPhone 14, Airpods Pro 2 and Apple Watch Series 8

The Apple Event 2022 was held at the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino, California, the US, on 7 September. This was the third live Apple event of the year after the March event and June’s WWDC 2022. The event had the tagline ‘Far Out,’ with the company’s famous logo designed in the form of stars set against a night sky.

As expected, Apple launched the iPhone 14, Apple Watch Series 8 and AirPods Pro 2 at the at the ‘Far Out’ event. But there was no appearance of the mixed-reality headset. The iPhone 14 was certainly the scene stealer, with two Pro models and two normal models. Most remarkable were the camera upgrades, especially in the Pro models and the introduction of the dynamic island.

The event was livestreamed at Apple.com, the Apple TV app and Apple’s official YouTube channel. This was Apple’s second in-person event in 2022. Presenters from the company, including CEO Tim Cook, simply announced the product launches.
