Apple yesterday announced a slew of new products, ranging from four new iPhone 14 models, three new Apple Watches, and brand new AirPods Pro. With so many new products, you may be confused over when each product will be available for pre-order and in-store. To help, we've created a guide to make clear all the important dates related to Apple's latest products.

Already Available for Pre-Order

After Apple's "Far out" event yesterday, the following three products were made immediately available for pre-order:

  • Second-Generation Apple Watch SE
  • Apple Watch Series 8
  • Apple Watch Ultra

Priced at $799, the new Apple Watch Ultra is explicitly designed for athletes, hikers, and marathon runners and features advanced health and fitness features. The Series 8, on the other hand, features the same design as the Apple Watch Series 7 but comes with a new body temperature sensor focusing on women's health. The Apple Watch Ultra is already facing 6-7 week delays for customers.

Friday, September 9

On Friday, September 9, the following products will become available for pre-order on Apple's website, the Apple Store app, and through Apple's retail partners worldwide. Ahead of Friday, Apple is already letting customers prepare to pre-order the new products.

  • iPhone 14
  • iPhone 14 Plus
  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Second-Generation AirPods Pro

Friday, September 16

A week later, on Friday, September 16, the following products will be available in Apple's retail stores worldwide and will begin arriving to customers.


  • iPhone 14
  • iPhone 14 Pro
  • iPhone 14 Pro Max
  • Second-Generation Apple Watch SE
  • Apple Watch Series 8

Friday, September 23

Another week later, the following two products will become available through Apple, its retail partners, and begin arriving to customers worldwide.

  • Second-Generation AirPods Pro
  • Apple Watch Ultra

Friday, October 7

Finally, two weeks later, one final product will see its launch:
  • iPhone 14 Plus
Apple has not said why the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Plus will begin shipping to customers three weeks after the rest of the lineup, but earlier reports suggested Apple was facing supply chain issues with the new model, particularly with display production.

Other Imporant Dates to Keep In Mind

Besides launching new products, Apple will also make iOS 16 available to all customers with a compatible iPhone on Monday, September 12. iOS 16 features a redesigned and customizable lock screen, new features in messages, and so much more. Also, on Monday, September 12, Apple will make watchOS 9 available for the Apple Watch Series 4 and later.

New iPhone cases available now for delivery/pick-up from tomorrow (Friday 9th) - mine coming tomorrow, not that I'll have much use for it for another week!

Already ordered a Series 8 45mm, should be a nice upgrade over the S5.

Looking forward to Friday, going for iPhone 14 Pro Max 256GB (unless the ProRes stuff is supported on 128GB?).

And to what country does this apply to? This blog is so USA focused it is rediculous. Hope to read about discounts on the US Amazon store soon, too!

In the EU the Watch 8 is available in september but with cellular in mid october.

Anyone know if I can expect to get my order on the release date in the US if I order as soon as it becomes available tomorrow?
