Apple just sent out invites for its next hardware event. As expected, the company will share what it’s been working on over the past year on September 7 with a live broadcast from Apple Park beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET. The invitation includes the words “Far out,” so check Reddit for what that could possibly mean. We’re expecting new phones and wearables from Apple.
Rumor has it that the iPhone 14 could feature more RAM, longer-lasting batteries, and a better selfie camera. Meanwhile, the Pro models are expected to sport a new design that swaps a display notch for a Samsung-style punch-hole front camera cutout. The Pro phones could also feature a new 48-megapixel main camera and thinner display bezels.

The legislation also targets blind spots in larger vehicles.
