What Apple Didn’t Announce at Its “Wonderlust” Event

Apple recently held its special event, “Wonderlust,” where it unveiled new products such as the iPhone 15, Apple Watch Series 9, and Apple Watch Ultra. However, there were several rumored products and features that did not make an appearance at the event.

One of the rumored products was a black version of the Apple Watch Ultra. While the titanium iPhone 15 Pro is available in multiple colors, the second-generation Apple Watch Ultra is only available in one color option and it’s not black.

Another rumor suggested that Apple would introduce an iPhone 15 Ultra. This larger iPhone with a 6.7-inch screen was rumored to be the only one to feature a periscope lens for better optical zoom. However, this did not happen at the event, and only the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max were introduced.

Apple’s shift to using USB-C ports instead of Lightning across the entire iPhone 15 lineup led to rumors of new USB-C accessories. It was speculated that Apple would release updated versions of accessories such as the AirPods Pro, EarPods, MagSafe Duo, and MagSafe Battery Pack with USB-C compatibility. However, Apple chose to discontinue the MagSafe Duo and MagSafe Battery Pack instead of updating them. The Magic Mouse and Magic Keyboard also remain unchanged in terms of charging port.

There were also rumors of color-matching braided USB-C cables for the iPhone 15. However, all iPhone 15 models come with the same white cable, and there are no separate color options available.

Reports had suggested that the new iPhone 15 models would support Thunderbolt for faster data transfer. However, this feature was not announced at the event. Similarly, rumors of faster charging speeds of up to 35W for the iPhone 15 were not confirmed during the event.

Additionally, no new Macs or iPads were introduced at the event, although Apple is expected to announce updated versions of the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and Mac mini with the M3 chip, as well as a new iPad Air, in the near future.

While these rumored products and features did not make an appearance at the “Wonderlust” event, it is possible that Apple was working on them but ultimately chose to prioritize other announcements.
