Apple will hold its first fall event on Wednesday, September 7, and the event is now featured on Apple's website. As with all Apple events, if you visit the page on an iPhone or iPad, you can see an interactive augmented reality easter egg.


For the September 7 event, which is titled "Far Out," Apple has designed a space-themed Apple logo and a black hole-style experience. Initiating the AR experience puts a black hole in the center of the room, which then shows stars in the shape of an Apple logo as you approach.

The stars continue to coalesce in and out of an Apple logo shape, and you can use pinch gestures to adjust the size of the black hole.

To view the AR experience, open up the Events website on an iPhone or iPad and tap on the Apple logo. From there, you can scan the area around you to see the logo in real time, or view it in "Object" mode to get a clearer picture of what it looks like without having to navigate your physical environment.

Apple's event will begin at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time on Wednesday, September 7. In addition to being streamed on YouTube, the event can be watched through the events webpage and in the Apple TV app. If you're unable to watch, you can tune in to the MacRumors live blog on the site or follow along with our MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

Space Gray, Space Black, Starlight, Moonlight. The space reference must be a new space-themed color coming soon.

Because they can’t mean the literal thing (iPhone zoom) since they don’t have a 10x optical zoom yet, and we’re not getting that until at least next year.

As I mentioned in the other thread, I think the black with white only on it may be a reference to an always on display. And the appearance of stars may be a reference to the much improved camera being even better for astrophotography. The last iPhone could do a pretty decent job with the Milky Way (I tested it in rural Vermont where there were very clear skies and it was beautiful), so I bet they highlight that here as well.

The cameras will be so great it will be like having the Webb telescope in the palm of your hand. You will be able to take pictures of the "Big Bang" in all its glory. BUT ONLY IF YOU ORDER THE 14 Pro MAX!
