While this kind of charging port has a proven track record for fast-charging phones, it might mean some of your old cables are no longer useful. That’s unless you buy Apple’s £29 adapter dongle.

Still some other Apple devices, such as its MacBook line-up, already use USB-C, and the standard is common for smartphones including most Android devices.

Apple also announced a new version of its wireless earphones AirPods Pro that uses the USB-C standard. The second generation of AirPods Pro includes better active noise cancellation and transparency modes, plus an extended range of ear tips for comfort.

The AirPods Pro (second generation) go on sale Friday 22 September. 

Apple Watch Series 9

The Apple Watch Series 9 is the latest addition to Apple’s line of smartwatches and introduces brand new features, which are powered by an all-new S9 microchip. 

This includes a new hands-free gesture: double tap. If a user taps their thumb and forefinger together twice, they can use it to answer calls, turn off alarms, and play music without touching the watch.

The device does this by using an algorithm that detects tiny wrist movements and changes to blood flow when users double tap their thumb and forefinger together.

Apple chief operating officer Jeff Williams says: “Double tap makes interacting with your apple watch faster, easier and more convenient. It will become one of those magical experiences you rely on every day”.

Users can also enjoy an enhanced version of Apple’s Siri assistant, which can access and log health and fitness data. Siri will be able to process certain requests on the device, without being connected to WiFi or mobile networks. 

The smartwatch includes an updated version of Apple’s ultrawide wideband chip, which provides more precise directions when searching for a misplaced iPhone 15.

The latest generation of Apple Watch comes with an 18-hour battery life.
