With Apple's “Far Out” Event scheduled just two days from now, the rumours and leaks are at an all-time high. Apple has not released any information about the iPhone 14 except one thing – the “Far Out” Event which will see the Cupertino-based tech giant launch its next flagship series along with the new Apple Watch 8. Here's what we know so far.

Apple “Far Out” Event

Apple has scheduled the “Far Out” Event on September 7 where Apple will unveil its latest iPhone 14 series and the Apple Watch 8. The tech giant could also spring some surprise announcements such as the Airpods Pro 2. The event will be hosted at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park in Cupertino, California. The livestream for the event will begin at 10:30 pm IST on September 7.

iPhone 14 Pro Max to get faster charging battery

According to a recent tweet by Apple tipster and Twitter user @duanrui1205, Apple could introduce a faster charging speed for the battery in the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple currently provides 20W fast charging support for its iPhones. However, as batteries get larger, so does the need for faster charging. The company is reportedly set to offer 30W fast charging support in its upcoming flagship series.

Not sure which
mobile to buy?

Although it may seem enough, 30W is nowhere near as fast when compared to the Android smartphones where most of them are now offering 120W fast charging support. A handful of Android devices also offer extreme 240W fast charging support.

Apple to kill off lightning connector?

As per the reports, Apple could kill off its proprietary lightning connector which will see it shift its devices to USB-C technology. Apple's lightning cable technology came into effect with the launch of the iPhone 5 way back in 2012, moving away from the 30-pin connectors used by the previous iterations of iPhones and iPods.

And now, it seems the lightning connectors may be going away. This move will force the users' hand to buy all new cables for their Apple devices.
