This is the big day ! The Apple keynote for the presentation of the iPhone 15 – and the other smartphones in the series, iPhone 15 Plus, 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max – will take place today, Tuesday September 12.

Here we explain how to follow the conference live.
The Apple keynote thread
Only one hour left
Prepare for Apple’s “Revelation”. The pun is not ours, it is the official French translation provided by the brand for “Wonderlust”, the name of the keynote in English.
Brief ! Get ready, because the conference starts in one hour sharp.

Only 2 hours left before the keynote
Hello everyone ! I hope you’re doing well. We are two hours away from Apple’s keynote for the start of the 2023 school year. As a reminder, we are waiting for:
- the iPhone 15, 15 Plus, 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max;
- the Apple Watch Series 9 and potentially the Watch Ultra 2;
- possibly an update of the AirPods Pro to also switch them to USB-C.
And several questions remain around the iPhone 15.
- Will the price increase further? And if so, by how much?
- Should we expect 100% eSIM iPhones in France?

How to watch the Apple iPhone 15 keynote live
Apple will launch its keynote on Tuesday, September 12 at 7 p.m. (Paris time)
We recommend two ways to follow it live to watch the presentation of the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
We will be live on our Twitch channel FrandroidLive to comment on the keynote announcements as they happen. On the set, there will be our guest PP Garcia accompanied by Titouan, Cassim, Arnaud and Robin (not all at the same time though).
Our show starts at 6:40 p.m.! Furthermore, do not hesitate to stay here on this article which will be updated live with our hot comments from the Apple keynote.
On Apple’s YouTube channel
Obviously, we also share with you the official method which simply consists of launching the video below on Apple’s YouTube channel. Reminder: the keynote starts at 7 p.m. sharp if you are in mainland France.
Remember that Apple titled its keynote “Wonderlust”, translated into French with a sort of play on words: “Rêvélation”. So understand that the firm promises to make you dream with its revelations.
iPhone 15s expected
The iPhone 15s are particularly anticipated this year for one thing in particular: they should be the first from the brand to be equipped with a USB-C port, thus replacing the proprietary Lightning connection that Apple has long defended tooth and nail. However, the European Union will impose USB-C as the universal standard for wired charging in 2024.
Rather than waiting until the very last moment to comply with the new rule, Apple has decided to already apply it on the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max. Another big news for Europe: the iPhone 15s would be 100% eSIM.
Moreover, we expect some fairly logical technical developments and small modifications on the design side. The big remaining questions are as follows.
What about the supposed iPhone 15 Ultra? According to the latest news, this potential variation mentioned several times will not finally see the light of day.
How much will the iPhone 15 cost? It is currently difficult to answer this question, but there is a good chance that the price of the iPhone 15 will continue to increase compared to previous generations.
Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2
The September conference is dedicated to the iPhone ecosystem at large. It is therefore also at this event that the new Apple Watches are presented. This year, we expect a new version of the Apple Watch Ultra, and the Apple Watch Series 9.
In both cases, a radical design change should not be expected, but rather a technical update. The SoC change would be the first in space since the Apple Watch Series 6 of 2020. In particular to integrate a more efficient Apple U2 chip to locate its watch. The focus would be on a smaller environmental footprint of these new watches through more recycled materials.
AirPods would switch to USB-C
Latest element of the iPhone ecosystem: the 2nd generation True Wireless AirPods Pro earphones would also switch to USB-C. We are obviously talking about the headphone charging box which could abandon the Lightning on the evening of the conference. No other changes are expected, but Apple could touch on a word on the software update planned for this fall for its audio devices.
And the rest
The September conference is usually a time for Apple to discuss the topics most important to the company. In this great moment of marketing, the brand should in particular touch us with a few words on the importance of the environment and the planet for this company which will have just spent 90 minutes encouraging as many people as possible to consume and renew their devices. Among the expected changes, Apple could completely rethink the shells of its iPhones and the straps of its Apple Watch to avoid materials deemed cruel (leather) or too polluting.
We can also expect a few passages on the firm’s services, for example, a few trailers for new Apple TV+ content. Kind one trailer for season 2 of Severance. It’s just an example huh. But it wouldn’t be bad.
