Tim Cook: Good morning. Welcome to Apple Park. We're so excited you could join us today for some big announcements about two essential products: Apple Watch and iPhone. Like we just saw, nothing's more important than helping save lives, and it's amazing to see all the ways people use Apple Watch and iPhone every day. We're going to talk more about what's coming next to these products. But first, I'd like to provide a couple of updates, starting with the Mac. In June our Mac lineup got even better. We introduced the two most powerful Macs we've ever shipped, the new Mac Studio and Mac Pro. This completed the transition of the Mac to Apple silicon. We also introduced the world's best 15-inch laptop, the new 15-inch MacBook Air. And the reaction has been fantastic. Tom's Guide said the 15-inch MacBook Air is the best 15-inch laptop you can buy. And Marques Brownlee said the 15-inch MacBook Air is going to instantly rocket to the top of the lineup to become the most popular 15-inch laptop. We love the new MacBook Air and the entire Mac lineup. It's the best and most capable lineup in the history of the personal computer. We also unveiled Apple Vision Pro, an entirely new spatial computing platform where your digital content seamlessly blends with your physical space. Everything looks better on Vision Pro, including your favorite TV shows and movies, like the new season of The Morning Show which starts this week. And the response to Apple Vision Pro has been absolutely amazing. We're so pleased that people are as excited about Apple Vision Pro as we are. Apple Vision Pro has also captured the imagination of our remarkable developer community. We're extremely excited about what they're already showing us in our developer labs around the world. They're creating truly amazing experiences that wouldn't be possible on any other platform. Our Apple team is also making great progress with Vision Pro and we're on track to ship early next year. We look forward to sharing Apple Vision Pro and its breakthrough spatial experiences with all of you. Now, let's get to the big news of the day about Apple Watch and iPhone. Their innovative features and industry-leading technologies help improve our lives in so many meaningful and delightful ways. Apple Watch helps us stay healthy, active, and connected, and iPhone impacts just about everything we do. They're with us all the time. And if you left either one at home, I bet you'd go back and get it. So we're excited to talk about how we're taking Apple Watch and iPhone even further. Let's get started with Apple Watch. Here's Jeff to tell you more. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ Jeff Williams: Apple Watch helps millions of people live a better day. It monitors your health, motivates you to be active, connects you to the people and information you care about, and can even contact help if needed. And today I'm excited to introduce the next generation of Apple Watch. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ Jeff: Apple Watch is the world's most popular watch. And Series 9 takes it to the next level, with powerful new Apple silicon, and amazing new features that you'll use every single day. Here's Deidre to tell you all about it. ♪ ♪ Deidre Caldbeck: Apple silicon powers the incredible capabilities built into every Apple Watch. Designing our own chips and tightly integrating them with watchOS unlocks innovative features like advanced workout metrics, sleep stages, and car crash detection. Apple Watch Series 9 has been redesigned on the inside with the all-new S9 SiP, giving it a big boost in performance and capabilities. It's our most powerful watch chip yet. The S9 CPU has 5.6 billion transistors, 60% more than Series 8, and its GPU is 30% faster. The new S9 chip makes the animations and effects in watchOS 10 look super smooth. S9 also has a new 4-core Neural Engine that can process machine learning tasks up to twice as fast. This powerful custom silicon is what allows us to maintain all-day 18-hour battery life while adding new features and system-wide improvements to Series 9. Because it's always on you, Apple Watch is often the easiest and quickest way to use Siri. To check the score, close the garage, or send a message,
just raise your wrist and ask. It's that simple. Thanks to the powerful new Neural Engine, Siri requests are now processed on-device, making them faster and more secure. This means that the most common requests, like "Siri, start an outdoor walk workout," no longer have to go to the cloud, so they can't be slowed down by a poor Wi-Fi or cellular connection. And because the Neural Engine can run a more advanced transformer model, dictation on Series 9 is up to 25% more accurate than on Series 8. Secure on-device processing also enables a brand new feature: the ability to access your health data with Siri. So now you can ask, "How much did I sleep last night?", "What's my average walking heart rate?", or "How does my Move ring look today?" And you can log health data, like your weight or period, or that you've taken your medications, with just your voice. Siri health queries will be available later this year in English and Mandarin with more languages to follow. Apple Watch is perfect for interacting with nearby objects like smart locks, gym equipment, or payment terminals. At home or out in the world, your watch connects to all kinds of devices making so many of the things you do easier. And with watchOS 10, you can use NameDrop to instantly share your contact information with another person's Apple Watch. This year, Apple silicon enhances another one of our users' favorite nearby or faraway features: the ability to ping your iPhone. Series 9 has a new second-generation Ultra Wideband chip that enables Precision Finding for iPhones with the same chip. You'll see both the distance and direction to your iPhone, and once you get close, haptic and audible feedback guide you to its location, even if it's in a different room. Ultra Wideband also brings new integration between Apple Watch and HomePod. When you get close to your HomePod, media suggestions will automatically appear at the top of the Smart Stack, so you can instantly fire up a playlist or podcast. Or if audio is already playing, your watch will launch Now Playing to let you control it. Series 9 features a big edge-to-edge Always-On Retina display that's even easier to read outdoors because it now goes up to 2000 nits, double the brightness of Series 8. The display is also better in very dark situations, like a movie theater or early morning wakeup, because it now goes down to just one nit. These features will be useful every time you put on your watch. But that's not all. The powerful SiP also enables an incredible new capability. Back to Jeff to tell you about it. Jeff: Innovations on Apple Watch like the Digital Crown and Taptic Engine, along with tap, swipe, and double-click, make it simple and intuitive to use. Apple Watch is also controlled by gestures like wrist raise, which brightens the display to let you check the time, read notifications, or see who's calling with a glance. You can even cover the display to silence alerts. Today, we're adding something really cool. Series 9 enables an incredible new gesture that uses just your watch hand. It's especially convenient for those common situations, when your other hand is occupied, like walking the dog or holding a cup of coffee.
We think you'll use this all the time. Introducing Double Tap. Just tap your index finger and thumb together twice. It's that easy. You can use Double Tap to answer a call. Let me show you. Hi, Deidre. Deidre: Hey, Jeff. Jeff: This same gesture also works to end the call. See you later. Deidre: Okay, bye. Jeff: Double Tap controls the primary button in an app so you can use it to stop a timer, play and pause music, or snooze an alarm. A Double Tap will also launch the Smart Stack from your watch face. Double Tap again to scroll through the widgets, just like turning the Digital Crown. This new gesture is enabled by the powerful neural engine in Series 9, which processes data from the accelerometer, gyroscope, and optical heart sensor in a completely new way. It uses a machine learning algorithm to detect the unique signature of tiny movements and changes in blood flow when your hand and fingers perform a Double Tap, Check out Double Tap in action. [watch chiming] ♪ ♪ [ringtone chiming] Hello? ♪ ♪ Hello? Hello? ♪ ♪ [ringtone chiming] Hey, Mom. ♪ ♪ Whoa. ♪ ♪ Tina: I took a left at Survival, but I don't know what books you're talking about.

Series 9 will be available in a gorgeous new Pink alumincase, plus Starlight, Silver, Midnight, and PRODUCT(RED), and stainless steel cases in Gold, Silver, and Graphite. Across these models we've also been innovating in another important direction: Towards our industry-leading environmental goals. We recently had the chance to share our progress with a special guest. [muttering] ♪ ♪ [sighs] Welcome to Apple. Welcome to Apple. Hi, I'm Tim. - She should be here any minute. How was the weather coming here? Hi, I'm Tim. ♪ ♪ Hey,, I'm gonna do "The office is already carbon neutral," thing, right? - Yeah, all yours. - Okay. ♪ ♪ Okay. ♪ ♪ [thunder rumbling, wind blowing]

Let's cut to the chase. In 2020, you promised to bring Apple's entire carbon footprint to zero by 2030. Henry David Thoreau over here said we have a profound opportunity to build a more sustainable future for the planet we share. I think our 10:00 o'clock said the same thing. They all do. All right, this is my third corporate responsibility gig today,
so who wants to disappoint me first? Well, we've got some updates we are excited to share with you-- Materials? Status. Is there a materials person here? Yes. We are in the process of eliminating all plastic from our packaging by the end-- Let me guess. 50 years from now when someone else is left holding the bag? By the end of next year, actually. And we're also currently using 100% recycled aluminum in the enclosures of all our MacBooks, Apple TVs, Apple Watch. What about iPod Shuffle? The--well-- [indistinct muttering] Mother Nature: It's a joke. Don't you people make Ted Lasso? That's a different group. Um, we're also phasing out leather in our iPhone cases. What about Brando over there? They phasing you out too? Oh. What's next? - Electricity. - Electricity? Status. Uh, we're--we're operating on 100% clean electricity.
What runs on 100% clean electricity? Every Apple office, store, and data center runs on clean electricity, thanks to you and your powerful wind and sun. Mm. And Apple offices are already carbon neutral. This building is carbon neutral? Well, yeah, we do it with a mix of clean energy and eliminating greenhouse emissions. It's kind of like if you were to,-- You're seriously explaining carbon neutrality to Mother Nature? Right. No. Sorry. You want to tell me how photosynthesis works too? - Don't. - Um... also, over 300 suppliers have committed to using 100% clean renewable electricity. What's next? Transportation. I'm…proud to report that we're shipping more products by ocean, rather than air, which reduces transportation emissions by 95%. 95%? Not too bad. I'm also happy to report that we're investing in projects around the world that protect the Earth's soil, plants, and trees. [chuckles] Everyone says they're planting trees. We've planted forests. Oh. Hello. - Where? - Paraguay. Brazil. What, are you trying to save the tropical savannah? ♪ ♪ Yes. And we've also restored mangroves in Colombia. What else? - Grasslands in Kenya. - Why? Our aim is to permanently remove carbon from the atmosphere. ♪ ♪ - What about your water usage? - We've reduced it. - By how much? - 63 billion gallons. - 63 million? - Billion. ♪ ♪ Tim: As you can see, we've innovated and retooled almost every part of our process to reduce our impact on the planet. By 2030, all Apple devices will have a net zero climate impact. All of them? All of them. They better. They will. ♪ ♪ Okay. Good. See you next year. Don't disappoint your mother! ♪ ♪ That was awesome. [excited chatter] ♪ ♪ Jeff: As you can see, we've been working on some really big environmental initiatives and it's making a difference. To share more, here's Lisa. ♪ ♪ Lisa Jackson: At Apple, our mission is to make products customers love and protect the planet at the same time. Three years ago, we made our corporate operations around the world carbon neutral. It was the first step towards our most ambitious environmental commitment to date.
Apple 2030: our plan to be carbon neutral across our entire business by the year 2030. The next step is getting the carbon footprint of all of our products down to net zero. For Apple Watch Series 9, we challenged ourselves to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their three biggest sources: materials, electricity, and transportation. Maximizing recycled and renewable materials in our products is key to Apple 2030 because they have a lower carbon impact than virgin materials. So we use 100% recycled alumin in our watch cases, plus recycled gold, tin, copper, tungsten, and more inside of Series 9. And for the first time, there is 100% recycled cobalt in the battery.
We also redesigned one of our most popular watch bands, the Sport Loop, to use more recycled material. It is now made with 82% recycled yarn, while maintaining the softness and comfort you love. Electricity is the biggest source of carbon emissions. Since 2015, we've been investing in renewable energy like this solar installation in central California while helping our suppliers do the same. And we're excited to announce that starting this year,
all Apple Watch manufacturing is powered by 100% clean electricity, Charging is another source of emissions. While it's a small amount per person, across millions of watch wearers, it adds up. So we decided to do something about it. For Series 9, Apple will match 100% of your expected electricity use
by investing in renewable energy projects around the world. Finally, we looked at how Apple Watch gets from the factory to you. To cut emissions from transportation, we started by redesigning Series 9 packaging to be 100% fiber-based and more compact. It has a new, smaller shape that lets us ship up to 25% more watches per trip. And more of those trips will be made with low-carbon shipping modes, like ocean-freight, which emits just one-twentieth of shipping by air. Our efforts to reduce emissions from materials, electricity, and transportation
resulted in a whopping 78% decrease in the carbon footprint. The small amount of emissions that remain are offset by high-quality credits from projects like forests and wetlands that actively remove carbon from the atmosphere. This last step brings the net carbon footprint of Apple Watch Series 9 down to zero, making it our first-ever carbon neutral product! Any combination of aluminSeries 9 and new Sport Loop is carbon neutral and has been certified by an independent third party. To help you recognize it, you'll see this new logo on the box. We are so excited about this achievement, and it's how we plan to get all Apple products to carbon neutral, by innovating across design, engineering, and operations to steeply reduce emissions before applying high-quality carbon credits. While Apple 2030 is the destination, the journey is important, too.
So we looked for additional opportunities to make change. Leather is a popular material for accessories, but it has a significant carbon footprint, especially at Apple's scale. To reduce our impact, we will no longer use leather in any new Apple products, including watch bands, and that starts today. Now, back to Jeff to tell you more. Jeff: We've developed a beautiful, luxurious, and durable new textile that we're calling FineWoven. It's made of 68% post-consumer recycled content, which has a significantly lower carbon footprint than leather. FineWoven gives the new Magnetic Link a subtle luster and suede-like feel and it looks great on the Modern Buckle, too. Both bands will be available in new colors and offer a sophisticated look for any special occasion. We also explored more environmentally friendly materials with our partners. This year, we collaborated with Hermès on four new styles that draw on their long history in textiles. There are two elegant woven bands, our first-ever knitted band, and another in sporty molded rubber. And all come in a range of rich colors. Hermès Radial, a modern take on their classic watch face, complements these innovative new styles. We also worked with Nike to design new bands that repurpose excess materials and waste, reducing the use of virgin material. The new Nike Sport Band includes colorful flakes of recycled material. They create a randomized pattern that makes each band unique. For the Nike Sport Loop, we repurposed yarn from previous seasons to make the same soft material with a fun, new space dye look. Both bands come in a range of dynamic colors. And there's a new Nike watch face that shows each passing second on the lines of the globe. And that's the new Apple Watch Series 9. It features a magical new way to control your watch with Double Tap, faster on-device Siri that lets you securely access health data, Precision Finding for iPhone, and a brighter display all enabled by the S9 SiP, our most powerful chip ever in an Apple Watch. And it's Apple's first-ever carbon neutral product.
Now, let's talk about Apple Watch Ultra. ♪ ♪ Ultra is the most advanced Apple Watch, and it's perfect for anyone who wants the biggest display and longest battery life with a stunning design. Over the last year, Ultra has helped people accomplish extraordinary feats,
like summiting the tallest mountains, completing demanding endurance races, and diving the world's oceans. Ultra is a precision tool designed to go farther, higher, and deeper than any Apple Watch has before. And we've made our most rugged and capable Apple Watch even better. Today we're introducing Apple Watch Ultra 2
with incredible new features that elevate any adventure. And here's Daniela to tell you all about it. Daniela Deschamps: Ultra 2 gets the powerful new S9 SiP. That means you can use the new Double Tap gesture anytime your hands are full. Set a Waypoint using just your voice with the new on-device Siri, even when you have no connectivity. And Precision Finding with the second generation Ultra Wideband chip helps you easily find your iPhone when you can't remember where it's stowed. Ultra 2 also has a new advanced display architecture that pushes the brightness to a massive 3000 nits. It's the brightest display Apple has ever created, and makes Ultra 2 more readable in the harshest sunlight. To take advantage of this incredible display, we created an exclusive new watch face called Modular Ultra. It's the first to use the outermost edge of the display to show real-time data like altitude, depth, or the passing seconds. Modular Ultra can be customized to provide the most information at a glance of any digital watch face we have ever made. And now Night Mode uses the ambient light sensor to activate automatically in the dark. Day or night, Ultra has so much to offer. And for runners, it's the perfect choice with advanced metrics, a big, brighter display, a customizable Action button, and precision dual-frequency GPS. And this year, watchOS 10 takes cycling to the next level, allowing you to connect Bluetooth accessories to measure cadence, speed, and power.
Apple Watch also helps you get the most out of your training with Power Zones. And if you start a cycling workout on your watch, it automatically shows up as a Live Activity on your iPhone. Ultra 2 is designed for extremes and has been tested across the largest range of altitudes for any Apple product, from the lowest valleys to the highest peaks. Ultra is also great for your underwater adventures. The Depth app now saves a log of each session, so you can review your dives right on Ultra and in the Fitness app on iPhone. From alpine peaks, to deep water, to the open road, we can't wait to see where you take Ultra 2. Now, back to Jeff. ♪ ♪ Jeff: Even with all these new capabilities, Ultra 2 still gets the same great battery life. Up to 36 hours of typical use on a single charge, and up to 72 hours in Low Power Mode. With Ultra 2, we are also continuing our commitment to the environment. In just one year, we significantly increased the amount of recycled content in the case, going from all virgin titani to 95% recycled. This dramatic improvement in material, along with our work in clean electricity and transportation, allowed us to meet our ambitious carbon reduction targets making any Ultra 2 paired with an Alpine Loop or Trail Loop carbon neutral. And this year, the Trail Loop and Alpine Loop, and the Ocean Band come in a range of beautiful new colors. And that's the new Apple Watch Ultra 2. It comes with all of the features users love about Ultra, plus the powerful S9 SiP, Apple's brightest display ever, an expanded altitude range, on-device Siri, and a brand new gesture for easy control of your watch. These innovations and the advancements in watchOS 10, make our most rugged and capable watch even better. Ultra 2 joins Series 9 in the lineup along with the popular second generation Apple Watch SE. And we're excited to announce that SE is also carbon neutral when paired with a Sport Loop. Which means this fall, customers can buy a carbon neutral model of any new Apple Watch. The Apple Watch SE starts at just $249. The new Series 9 starts at $399. And Apple Watch Ultra 2 is $799. You can order the new Apple Watch models starting today, and they will be available on September 22nd. Now, back to Tim. ♪ ♪ Tim: I love the new Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. With incredible new capabilities, they're the most technically advanced watches we've ever created. And I'm really proud of the Apple Watch team
for delivering our first carbon neutral product seven years ahead of our companywide 2030 goal. Now, let's talk about iPhone. Since the very first iPhone, we've focused on giving our users a device that's incredibly powerful, remarkably easy to use, and beautifully designed. Every year, we've built on this foundation to create experiences that make a real difference in our users' daily lives. Today, we're pushing what users love about iPhone even further. And I'd like to show it to you now. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ Tim: iPhone 15 is absolutely incredible! To tell you all about it, here's Kaiann. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ Kaiann Drance: iPhone 15 has an all-new design that's simply gorgeous. Starting from the front, it has the Dynamic Island, which has been a hit with our Pro users. The Dynamic Island fluidly expands and adapts to your alerts and Live Activities, creating an experience that's so intuitive, it feels magical. Now even more users can easily control their music or see the next direction in Maps. Our amazing community of developers have made the Dynamic Island even more useful by expanding what it can do. Now, you can track a pizza delivery and follow the big game at the same time. When you're catching a flight, you can see which gate you're leaving from, and how long until boarding time. It's more helpful than ever. And the Dynamic Island looks fantastic on the Super Retina XDR display, which uses OLED technology. It provides an exceptional viewing experience, with thinner borders, rich color, and support for Dolby Vision. And now, it's even brighter. Peak HDR brightness reaches 1600 nits, so HDR photos and videos will look better than ever. When it's sunny, peak brightness can now go up to 2000 nits, twice as bright as iPhone 14. It comes in two sizes: 6.1 inches for iPhone 15 and 6.7 inches for iPhone 15 Plus. The larger display of iPhone 15 Plus gives you more space for text when you're reading the latest article, post, or message, and the bigger display is perfect when you choose larger text. Both sizes feel even nicer in your hand due to a new contoured edge on the aerospace-grade aluminenclosure. For the first time ever in a smartphone, iPhone 15 has color embedded throughout a single piece of durable color-infused glass. We use metallic ions to build color into the foundation of the material itself, precisely controlling the saturation to create five stunning colors: Pink, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Black. To provide the durability our users depend on, we optimized our custom dual ion-exchange process for this new material and polished it with nano-crystalline particles. Then, it's etched to create a textured matte finish that feels incredible. iPhone 15 has Ceramic Shield, tougher than any smartphone glass, and water and dust resistance, so it's built to last. And iPhone holds its value longer than any other smartphone. This is good for our users, and good for the environment, since it helps conserve finite natural resources. Another key part of reaching our goal of carbon neutral products by 2030
is maximizing our use of recycled content, as you heard from Lisa earlier. The enclosure uses 75% recycled aluminum. For the first time, we're using 100% recycled cobalt in the battery and 100% recycled copper foil in the main logic board and MagSafe charger. iPhone 15 has an entirely new advanced camera system. It is designed to help our users take fantastic photos of everyday moments in their lives. We're always looking for ways to make it easier for everyone to take gorgeous photos, so we're bringing an amazing 48MP Main camera to iPhone 15. It's built for shooting sharp photos and videos every day, with a quad-pixel sensor and 100% Focus Pixels for fast autofocus. This 48MP camera opens up some exciting capabilities. Say you're outside on a bright, sunny day. You can maximize resolution with a 48MP photo, like this majestic landscape, which captures the fine details of the mountains, the rolling hills, and even the individual shingles on the houses. Of course most of the time, it's best to balance detail and light capture, so we use computational photography to take the Main camera to the next level. The sensor groups every four pixels together into a larger two-micron pixel for fantastic light capture. Then Photonic Engine takes the image that's been optimized for light capture and combines it with a super-high resolution image for rich details. The result is a 24MP photo with incredible image quality and double the resolution. It perfectly balances light and detail, and has a practical file size that's great for storing and sharing. And with all these pixels, we can do more than increase the resolution. Using the middle 12MP of the new sensor, we enabled a new 2x Telephoto option for capturing photos and 4K video with optical quality. It's like having a third camera! It helps you feel closer to the scene, and because it's enabled by the Main camera, it has the same ƒ/1.6 aperture and sensor-shift optical image stabilization, which helps you take fantastic photos even in low light. You can zoom out to capture the whole scene,
or zoom in for the perfect close-up all with optical quality. When you're shooting videos, the 2x Telephoto also has continuous zoom, so you can frame the scene, like here in 4K Cinematic mode. It helps you feel closer to your subject, so it's perfect for portraits, which are getting even better. To tell you more, here's Maryam. ♪ ♪ Maryam Azimi Hashemi: This year, we're introducing the next generation of portraits on iPhone! Now, it's even easier to get stunning portraits of your friends and family. Portraits will get richer color and great low light performance, like this one. It's full of vivid color and detail, and it uses a rich depth map to create a beautiful bokeh effect. In this portrait of a very good dog asking for a treat, iPhone caught the perfect moment with zero shutter lag. A split second later, and it just wouldn't be the same. And it's easier to take a portrait, because now you don't have to remember to switch to Portrait mode. Using machine learning, we can detect when there's a person in the frame and capture rich depth information automatically, so you can turn it into a stunning portrait right away, or later on in the Photos app. It even works with dogs and cats, so you can have more portraits in your pets albin iOS 17 automatically. And with the rich depth map, we're introducing Focus and Depth Control for a whole new level of creative control. Take this super-high resolution portrait. Now you can switch the focus from one subject to another after the photo has been taken. It gives you so many more options with your photos, and less to think about in the moment. When it's dark, Night mode is getting better too, like in this photo which was taken outside. It has sharp details and vibrant colors so it beautifully captures the texture of his skin, individual strands of hair, and even the shadows of leaves on his shirt. When lighting is bright or uneven, the latest Smart HDR captures both the sky and your subject with vivid colors and even more true-to-life rendering of skin tones.
Look at this colorful selfie shot on the TrueDepth front camera. It uses our new Smart HDR to beautifully capture the deep shades of purple in her shirt and the bright red of the chair behind her. When you're looking at HDR photos in the Photos app, they'll have brighter highlights with richer mid-tones, so you can really see the rich shades of her dress and how the light hits her cheek just the way it was in real life. By combining advanced computational photography with the 48MP Main camera, Ultra Wide camera, and TrueDepth front camera, iPhone 15 makes it easy to take great-looking photos and videos every day. And it's all powered by Apple silicon. Back to Kaiann. ♪ ♪ Kaiann: To deliver all of these advanced features, iPhone 15 has an incredible chip: A16 Bionic. It was introduced on iPhone 14 Pro, and it's proven how powerful, fast, and efficient it is. The custom image signal processor enables the advanced camera system so you can capture fantastic high-resolution photos and videos.
The 16-core Neural Engine handles everything from computational photography to Live Voicemail transcriptions on device in order to protect your privacy. The 5-core GPU has 50% more memory bandwidth than A15 Bionic, so it's even better for graphics-intensive games. And the 6-core CPU has two high-performance cores, which are faster and use 20% less power than A15 Bionic. The four high-efficiency cores can handle most daily tasks, so even with all the new features, iPhone 15 still has all-day battery life. And iPhone 15 Plus has a bigger battery that lasts even longer, for those days when you forget to charge or just want to spend more time gaming, browsing the web, or on FaceTime with your friends. Now let's talk about connectivity. iPhone 15 uses powerful wired and wireless technologies. To tell you about the exciting new wireless features coming to iPhone 15, here's Deniz. ♪ ♪ Deniz Teoman: iPhone uses wireless technologies to make everyday activities easier, like streaming videos with AirPlay, or easily sharing contact information with NameDrop using near field communication. iPhone was the first smartphone with Ultra Wideband, which is great for identifying where your keys are hiding in the couch. Ultra Wideband is getting even better this year because just like Apple Watch, iPhone 15, has our cutting-edge second generation Ultra Wideband chip. So iPhone 15 can connect to other devices with this chip from up to three times farther away. This chip also opens up a completely new way to use Precision Finding on iPhone 15: to find your friends. When you're in a crowded place like a train station or a farmer's market, and your friends share their location, you'll be guided right to them, with clear directions and distance. It's built into Find My, so it has all the same privacy protections that users have come to trust. Of course, sometimes a phone call is the best way to reach someone. iPhone already has fantastic 5G performance, and now audio quality on phone calls is getting better too because iPhone 15 uses a more advanced machine learning model that automatically prioritizes your voice. If you prefer to filter out even more distracting background noise, just select Voice Isolation, and you'll come through loud and clear. I'm at the farmer's market. Do you want-- Hang on. It's noisy here. Better? Great. Of course, they have apples here. Deniz: It's a feature you can use every day. ♪ ♪ Sometimes a call can't go through because you're off the grid. When you need help in an emergency, iPhone introduced a breakthrough new service: Emergency SOS via satellite. It's having an extraordinary impact, including helping first responders rescue people after accidents and natural disasters. And users have let their loved ones know that they're safe, by updating their location with Find My via satellite in places from the Shetland Islands in Scotland to Mount Wellington in Tasmania.
Emergency SOS and Find My via satellite have expanded to 14 countries on three continents, and they're coming to Spain and Switzerland this month. Emergency SOS was built for serious emergencies that require a first responder. But say you have car trouble and no cellular or Wi-Fi service. For those times, we're introducing Roadside Assistance via satellite. It's built on the same advanced technology as our existing satellite service, and it's so easy to use. Just text Roadside Assistance and select what kind of help you need. Then the intuitive interface will guide you to connect to a satellite and share that information with a roadside assistance provider. They'll message you directly and dispatch help to your exact location, with the right equipment to get you moving. It's launching in the US with AAA, the country's largest roadside assistance provider. Roadside service is covered by AAA membership and is also available separately for non-members. This is yet another way that iPhone is essential in our lives. Now, back to Kaiann. Kaiann: We're thrilled to include access to these satellite services free for two years with iPhone 15. These best-in-class wireless capabilities keep you connected when you're on the go. Now let's talk about iPhone's wired capabilities.
The connector is used for charging, syncing data, or connecting to accessories. USB-C has become a universally accepted standard, so we're bringing USB-C to iPhone 15. It enables charging, transferring data, playing audio and video, and it's been built into Apple products for years. Now, the same cable can charge Mac, iPad, iPhone, and even AirPods Pro 2nd Generation which is updated with a USB-C connector. If your AirPods are low on power, you can charge them, or even an Apple Watch, right from your iPhone. We're also bringing USB-C to EarPods, so they can work with iPhone 15 seamlessly. And for an easy wireless connection to chargers and other accessories, iPhone 15 has MagSafe, which uses magnets with 100% recycled rare earth elements. These magnets ensure perfect alignment of MagSafe or Qi2 chargers, as well as other accessories, like our beautiful cases and wallets. Millions of people use these MagSafe accessories. And just like our Watch bands, this gives us another opportunity for positive environmental impact
by eliminating leather and introducing stunning new FineWoven accessories that significantly reduce carbon emissions compared to leather. These soft and durable FineWoven Cases also join our Silicone and Clear Case, all designed to perfectly complement iPhone 15. So that's iPhone 15! It has so many innovations that you can use every day, like the Dynamic Island, a 48MP Main camera that provides a 2x Telephoto, and A16 Bionic. And it has capabilities that no other smartphone has, like the ability to get emergency and roadside assistance when you're off the grid, all built into a durable, color-infused design. And with all of these fantastic features, iPhone 15 is ready wherever the day takes you. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ Kaiann: iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are a huge leap forward.

And now, back to Tim. ♪ ♪ Tim: iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are truly incredible, with new capabilities that will make a real difference in our users' lives. Their unique combination of powerful technology, ease of use, and thoughtful design make them indispensable. And we're not done yet. Our Pro models represent the very best of Apple innovations, advancing features across design, camera, performance, and more. The next-generation Pro pushes each of these further in ways only Apple can, and I'd like to introduce it to you now. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ For a closer look at iPhone 15 Pro, the most pro iPhone we've ever created, here's Joz. ♪ ♪ Greg "Joz" Joswiak: iPhone 15 Pro is packed with industry-first innovations and features our users are going to love. Powered by our most advanced Apple silicon yet, it delivers the most incredible photos and videos. And we are thrilled to introduce our astonishing new Titanidesign. This is the most premimaterial we've ever used in an iPhone enclosure. Titaniis incredibly strong and durable. Yet, at the same time, it is much lighter, making these our lightest Pro models ever. You'll feel it as soon as you pick it up. Titaniis just beautiful. It feels fantastic with the new contoured edges, and we are also introducing the thinnest borders ever on an iPhone. This enabled us to reduce iPhone dimensions without affecting the display size. So together with the lighter weight and new edges, iPhone 15 Pro is a delight to hold in your hand. In addition to the strength of titanium, iPhone 15 Pro has the toughest glass-based materials in the industry, including the Ceramic Shield front, which is only available on iPhone. And there are two great display sizes to choose from: 6.1 inches for iPhone 15 Pro, and 6.7 inches for iPhone 15 Pro Max. Now, to tell you more about this incredible titanidesign, here's Isabel. Isabel Yang: Every material we choose for iPhone is meticulously considered. For iPhone 15 Pro we re-evaluated every structural component, inside and out, optimizing our alloy selection and creating a breakthrough innovation in manufacturing and materials design. The new enclosure uses Grade 5 titanium, an alloy that has even higher tensile strength than pure titanium. It's typically reserved for applications where the balance of strength, formability, as well as weight, are especially critical. In fact, this is the same alloy used on the Mars rover. Titanihas one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any metal, providing incredible durability for iPhone, while enabling a much lighter design in comparison to stainless steel. The titaniencases a new aluminsub-structure that is bonded using solid-state diffusion. This is an industry-first innovation, using a new thermo-mechanical process that joins these two metals with incredible high strength. Using aluminon the inside creates synergistic properties with the titanienclosure,
helping with thermal dissipation and further weight reduction. Titanialso introduces a new refined brush texture, enabled by a unique, multi-step process that includes precision machining, sanding, brushing, and blasting. And while anodizing is commonly used on titanium, we chose to use a PVD coating as added protection while introducing color. These Apple-designed coatings are engineered with nanometer precision, and take up to 14 hours to complete, resulting in four gorgeous finishes: Black Titaniand White Titani beautifully harmonize with the back glass, Blue Titanihighlights the material's elegance, and Natural Titanicelebrates its raw metallic nature. There is also a new internal chassis architecture that makes iPhone more repairable, thanks to a new structural frame that allows the back glass to be easily replaced. The entire aluminsub-structure is made with 100% recycled aluminum, a first for iPhone, contributing to the overall increase in recycled materials as we work toward our 2030 goals. Now, back to Joz. Joz: There is another design change for iPhone 15 Pro that we're really excited about. From the very first iPhone, we've had the Ring/Silent switch, a quick and easy way to mute iPhone sounds. We wanted to make this even better. So with iPhone 15 Pro, we are reinventing the experience with a customizable Action button. By default, it's still a simple Ring/Silent switch. To toggle between ring and silent, you simply press and hold the button to confirm your intent. You also feel a distinctive haptic feedback for each state. And you can choose a set of actions and easily switch between them. For example, with a simple press, you can start voice memos to quickly record a new idea, or launch Camera to capture that important moment, activate a favorite accessibility feature, like Live Speech, or you can use Shortcuts to open up an even wider set of options, from simply launching your favorite app to running your own custom shortcuts. The Action button delivers even more convenience and versatility to the iPhone experience. And every interaction gives you visual feedback with the Dynamic Island on the advanced pro display of iPhone 15 Pro. In addition to the innovative Dynamic Island, the Super Retina XDR display also provides the smooth performance of ProMotion, the brightness and color of Extreme Dynamic Range, and the convenience of the Always-On display. And with iOS 17 we're introducing StandBy, a new full-screen experience activated by turning your iPhone on its side while it's charging. With the Always-On display of iPhone 15 Pro, StandBy stays on persistently to show you useful information, perfect on a nightstand, kitchen counter, or desk. You can choose a simple digital clock, or customize your view with multiple widgets. iPhone 15 Pro also includes a huge advancement in performance. We are excited to introduce next-level performance and more pro capabilities than ever with the A17 Pro. For more on how this marks the beginning of a new chapter in iPhone performance, here's Sri. ♪ ♪ Sribalan Santhanam: The A-series chip powers every experience on iPhone. For iPhone 15 Pro, we developed a new generation of Apple silicon that is a major step forward, with changes throughout the entire chip including a breakthrough new GPU. At the foundation of this new chip is the transistor technology, and this is the industry's first 3-nanometer chip. These 3-nanometer transistors are patterned using state-of-the-art extreme ultraviolet lithography.
Elements of these transistors are just over 12 silicon atoms wide. A17 Pro features 19 billion of these transistors. And we use all of them to improve the performance, efficiency, and features of our new chip. The new CPU features micro-architectural and design improvements for both our performance cores and efficiency cores. Our performance cores are now up to 10% faster, continuing to deliver the fastest single-threaded performance in any smartphone, challenging even high-end desktop PCs. Our efficiency cores are also faster and remain unmatched in the industry, delivering three times the performance per watt of the competition. These are critical to iPhone as your most typical tasks run on these cores. The Neural Engine is now up to twice as fast for machine learning models, allowing it to process up to 35 trillion operations per second! The Neural Engine uses machine learning on device without sending your personal data to the cloud, powering features like typing more accurately with Autocorrect, lifting a subject from a photo background, or creating a Personal Voice for users at risk of speech loss. A17 Pro has dedicated engines that enable pro features. Those include the ProRes codec, and a display engine that powers ProMotion and the Always-On display. We also included a dedicated AV1 decoder, enabling more efficient and high-quality video experiences for streaming services. iPhone 15 Pro also has the new USB-C connector, but for our Pro models, we included a new USB controller in A17 Pro that enables new workflows not possible before. This is the first iPhone with USB 3 speeds, up to 10 gigabits per second. Using an optional USB 3 cable, that's up to 20 times faster than USB 2, enabling much higher transfer speeds. The groundbreaking innovation of A17 Pro is a brand new GPU, with a new Apple-designed shader architecture, our biggest redesign in the history of Apple GPUs. This is a Pro-class GPU that expands what's possible on iPhone even more. We focused on three things: improving performance and efficiency, running complex applications, and adding new rendering features. The new GPU is now a 6-core design, which is up to 20% faster for peak performance. And we also focused on energy efficiency that helps with sustained performance for games.
We've added brand new features to the GPU, like mesh shading, which lets games create detailed environments while drawing less power. And for the first time, we have hardware-accelerated ray tracing, featuring the fastest ray-tracing performance in any smartphone. Here's a scene without ray tracing that instead uses cube maps to approximate the reflections on surfaces. The light reflecting in the scene is less accurate and thus less realistic. Now here's a scene with ray-traced reflections, more accurately representing the behavior of light and reflections of the environment. With hardware-accelerated ray tracing, A17 Pro can run these graphics smoothly at much higher frame rates than with software-based ray tracing. It's a more immersive experience for games and AR applications. A17 Pro is more energy efficient and can run up to four times faster when compared with software-based ray tracing on A16 Bionic. Gaming is further improved with new software features, including MetalFX Upscaling, which combines the performance of the GPU and Neural Engine to enable high-quality graphics, while using much less power. With the fastest chip ever on any smartphone, we are excited for iPhone 15 Pro to change mobile gaming. Back to Joz to tell you more. Joz: iPhone is the best mobile gaming platform in the world. iPhone is powered by high-performance and power-efficient Apple silicon, features advanced HDR displays, supports variable refresh rates, and is compatible with the most advanced game controllers. The App Store and Apple Arcade have revolutionized game distribution. And iPhone and iOS have a fantastic game developer community. A17 Pro takes this incredible platform even further, laying the foundation for a new generation of mobile gaming. Some of the world's best developers are taking advantage of this new level of performance. Here's a taste of what's possible on iPhone 15 Pro. Fabrice Navrez: Welcome to New York City in The Division Resurgence. ♪ ♪ The A17 Pro allows us to push the quality of the game with improved resolution, more dynamic lighting, and even more fire and weather effects, making the game more real. ♪ ♪ Fish Ling: Thanks to the chip updates, we have been able to develop high-quality water features. That means more realistic waves and reflections. On the new iPhone 15 Pro, Honkai: Star Rail has never looked better. Tsuyoshi Kanda: But that's not all. Games like Resident Evil Village, and Resident Evil 4, once only available on consoles, can now be played on iPhone, thanks to A17 Pro. ♪ ♪ This is the future of mobile gaming, all thanks to the power of iPhone 15 Pro. ♪ ♪ Joz: Wow! It's amazing to think those games are running on a device that fits in your pocket. We're excited that The Division Resurgence is launching on iPhone in early 2024. And this new level of performance will enable new games for iPhone 15 Pro that were previously only available on game consoles, PCs, or the Mac. Like CAPCOM's Resident Evil Village and the remake of Resident Evil 4, both launching later this year. And Ubisoft will bring Mirage, the latest installment of the Assassin's Creed franchise, to iPhone 15 Pro in early 2024. This is the first time the console version of Assassin's Creed will be natively available on a smartphone. Now let's talk about the camera. The Pro camera system is a big reason why users choose our Pro models. Built on a powerful foundation of hardware and software, it captures the most amazing photos and videos, with the incredible versatility of multiple lenses. iPhone 15 Pro has our best camera system yet. Users will get even better photos and videos, powerful new features, and the equivalent of seven camera lenses in their pocket. To tell you how we achieve this, here's Misha. ♪ ♪
♪ ♪ Misha Scepanovic: Last year we introduced our innovative 48MP camera, which users loved for their beautiful high resolution photos. iPhone 15 Pro features a more advanced 48MP Main camera, with an even larger sensor than iPhone 15. The camera includes a new nanoscale coating to reduce lens flare, brings high resolution to everyday photos, enables more focal lengths, and has better low-light performance for portraits and Night mode. When using all pixels of the quad-pixel sensor, the Main camera can capture unbelievable detail,
like every little scale on this lizard. In addition to 48MP ProRAW, users can now shoot in 48MP HEIF, with four times more resolution than before. And with the power of our computational photography, we have the new super-high resolution default for the Main camera. 24MP photos merge the best of low light and detail together, as you can see here in the beautiful color of her eyes, the sharpness on the edges of her clothes, and the artistic reflection on the table. Since the new Photonic Engine now uses a 48MP image, iPhone can shoot higher resolution photos in 24-, 28- and 35-millimeter focal length, a very important range for pro photographers. They can now quickly switch between these new options, and even choose a new default lens, customizing their camera experience to their creative needs. iPhone 15 Pro also gets next-generation portraits with Focus and Depth Control, with two times better low light performance, as you can see here in this beautiful shot. The smallest details of her expression are incredibly clear and contrasted with the dimly lit, yet detailed background. You can really feel her emotion. In this photo, Night mode is unbelievable. Now powered by the Photonic Engine, we can capture more color and details than ever, from the warmth of her lipstick to the creases of her white dress. Enabled by the LiDAR Scanner, Night mode portraits also look stunning on iPhone 15 Pro. In this shot we captured the intricate fabric his sweater together with the beautiful bokeh of the lights in the background. And our latest Smart HDR delivers even more true-to-life photos, with greater dynamic range. As you can see here with the beautiful lighting on her face and the sun reflecting on her hair, all while preserving the blue of the sky. Now let's talk about our zoom range. iPhone 15 Pro features a great 3x Telephoto camera at 77-millimeter focal length, ideal for classic portraiture. For iPhone 15 Pro Max, we are using the extra size of the larger iPhone to introduce something unique, our longest optical zoom yet, 5x optical zoom at 120-millimeter focal length! We designed a state-of-the-art Telephoto camera. Compared to iPhone 14 Pro Max, it has a 25% larger sensor, 100% Focus Pixels, and an ƒ/2.8 aperture, the largest of any smartphone at this optical range. 120 millimeter is a very useful focal length, great for close-ups, wildlife photos, and getting closer to the sports action. 120-millimeter lenses are typically long, so instead we created an innovative tetra-prism design, built right into iPhone. The light rays are reflected four times through the glass structure, allowing the light to travel for longer in a much smaller design. This creates enough separation between the lens and the sensor to enable the longer focal length. And we have our most advanced stabilization yet: a combined OIS and autofocus 3D sensor-shift module that moves in all three directions, a first for any smartphone. This was critical to support the tetra-prism design. It provides even better stabilization, with up to 10,000 micro-adjustments per second! That's twice as many as iPhone 14 Pro. This longer focal length gives Pro users a brand new creative option, and we can't wait to see the incredible photos they will take. The Ultra Wide camera is also improved with a new anti-reflective coating, better Night mode, and the latest Smart HDR, in addition to enabling one of our users' favorite features on the Pro models: macro photography. Macro is one of the seven lenses of the new Pro camera system,
with a 10x optical zoom range going from 13- to 120-millimeter focal length, making iPhone 15 Pro Max more powerful and more versatile than ever. Now, back to Joz. Joz: iPhone 15 Pro will enable great workflows for photographers and filmmakers that previously weren't possible. Using a USB 3 cable with iPhone 15 Pro enables incredibly fast transfer speeds. So it's much faster to transfer your large ProRAW photos or ProRes videos to your Mac. And now you can use your iPhone with Capture One to shoot and instantly transfer 48MP ProRAW directly to a Mac, easily creating a pro studio suited for today's fast-paced needs. iPhone 15 Pro also supports recording ProRes video directly to an external storage drive. Video productions can quickly swap drives and keep iPhone as the main camera on set.
Recording to an external drive enables even higher quality recording options, pushing ProRes 4K up to 60 frames per second for the first time, a great option for filmmakers to create cinematic slow motion. We are also introducing Log encoding to make ProRes even more powerful for our pro users, enabling more range and flexibility for visual effects and color grading in post-production. With Log encoding, iPhone 15 Pro will be the first smartphone in the world to support the Academy Color Encoding System, or ACES, a global standard for color workflows, making it easier for filmmakers to use iPhone in their production. The iPhone 15 Pro camera system pushes the limits of what you can capture with a smartphone. The precious memories you capture on iPhone look incredible when viewing with Apple Vision Pro. Photos and videos look lifelike, and panoramas expand to create an immersive experience that wraps around you. And there's one more unique feature we've created just for the world of spatial computing. With iPhone 15 Pro, you can now capture spatial videos. We use the Ultra Wide and Main cameras together to create a three dimensional video. You can then relive these memories in a magical way on Apple Vision Pro. This is really important as your iPhone is with you all the time, so you won't ever miss capturing a special moment using spatial video, like your family's beach vacation. Spatial video lets you feel like you're right back to that moment in time. [laughs] You can also share these spatial videos with anyone
with an Apple Vision Pro so they can feel like they were there too. Capturing spatial video will be available later this year. So this is the iPhone 15 Pro, our best and most pro iPhone ever. With a new, beautiful, strong, and lighter titanidesign, as well as next-level performance from the A17 Pro, a convenient and customizable Action button, and our most pro camera system for our best photos and videos ever, including next-generation portraits and our longest optical zoom on iPhone 15 Pro Max. All while still providing great all-day battery life. The iPhone 15 Pro will start at the same price as last year, $999. And iPhone 15 Pro Max, featuring the new 5x Telephoto camera, will start at $1199 with 256GB of storage, which also matches last year's price with this level of storage. We also have incredible offers from Apple and our carrier partners, including up to $1000 off in the US when you trade in an iPhone 11 Pro or newer. All new iPhone models will be available for pre-order this Friday, September 15th, and they'll be available in stores next week on September 22nd. And starting next week, iCloud+ is adding two new plans: 6 and 12 terabytes, for even more room to keep your photos and videos safe. iCloud+ also has great features that allow you to easily share your photos, automatically back up your iPhone, and so much more. And of course, with Family Sharing, everyone in your household can get all the benefits of iCloud+.
