The Far Out event is, well … out. And Apple has made all the stops and more! A new iPhone version, a next-gen upgrade for the Airpods Pro, and new Apple watch variants. Is it Christmas already?
The event was an hour and a half long, so we know many of you may not have followed it through to the end. Don’t worry. We got you!
iPhone 14 Pro: A Heroic Entry
The anticipated iPhone 14 Pro variant takes the phrase “the bigger, the better” to heart, with a big screen standing at 6.1″ (and even bigger with the Max version). But the 48mp camera with 4x resolution and advanced quad-pixel sensor definitely take the cake. As they said in the event, simply jaw-dropping!
To take multitasking further, iPhone 14 Pro features something called ‘Dynamic Island’. It’s basically a glorified notification bar. But what’s special about it is that it hides away after alerting you of a call or message, so you have more room to play with on the big screen.
How much will you have to cough up for this dynamically dazzlingly desirable model? The Pro version hits for Rs 129,900 and the Pro Max for Rs 139,900. Both will be available from September 16.

Apple Watch Series 8 & SE: Watch Me Go!
Next up, the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE. The new series comes with extreme resistance to natural elements like dust and water and is also crack resistant. So if you want to go for a swim, trek up a hill, or just run for a bit, take your watch with you. It can handle it. If you get in an accident while out, the watch’s crash detection feature calls emergency services for your help. Neat, huh?
Let’s talk about health features now. With multiple trackers collecting metrics of every activity, be it cycling, running, or dancing, you can measure every step, every beat. It doesn’t end with activity tracking, though. With its innovative temperature check, you can analyze the changes to your cycle while you sleep, helping you plan your day accordingly.
The Series 8 sits comfy at Rs 45,900 and the SE version at Rs 29,900 both available from September 16.

Apple Watch Ultra: Pro Mode
One of the biggest reveals in the Far Out event is the Apple watch Ultra, which is said to be “the most rugged and capable Apple Watch ever.” The specs do back up the claim, but only testing will tell the truth.
The watch sports a titanium case, which sounds pretty strong. And with its IP6X dust resistance, the “rugged” part seems covered. But what about “capable”? Well, the Rs 89,900 watch uses a Wayfinder watch face to give the user enhanced navigation capability. And what’s cool is that you can transition to night mode in low-light scenarios with a flick of the switch.
The watch will be available from September 23. Got quite a way to go before you get your hands on them.
With the Far Out event now live, what’s next? Well, there is the October event to look forward to and enjoy the latest gadgets we talked about. So, as we journey into the Macbook hype, let us know what you think about the new stuff Apple just released in the comments below.
