Apple’s 2022 iPhones landed yesterday; here’s what’s new

|

By now, most people have consumed enough news about the new iPhones to be able to write this article better than I could. September’s Apple Event is like a prologue, as the new iPhones usher us from summer into autumn. It’s a yearly event, and the buzz and hype never seem to die; it’s equally exciting and irritating to watch the clamor and excitement over a singular product.

Most big tech sites have already covered the new iPhones ad nausea, starting with their customary “THE APPLE STORE IS DOWN!” articles in which they inform us to prepare for the big day of iPhones as Apple has brought its site down to update it with the new devices. We’ve been there in the past, hurriedly trying to cover all of the iPhones and news Apple announces and hoping to gain some traffic and eyes to our content. But this year was different. The big Apple Event landed on my daughter’s birthday, and instead of stuffing my eye and ear holes with iPhones, I spent most of the day with family.

So our coverage of the new iPhones is a little behind the rest of the pack, and I am okay with that. This works better for us as we can now consolidate the new information for better consumption. Apple was also kind enough to make an excellent guided tour video of the new iPhones, so if you’re more comfortable watching, check it out below. Otherwise, we’ve provided a bullet list of the highlights you can expect from these iPhones.
