The event is where Cupertino will unveil the next Generation of iPhones and shows the final version of the most recent iOS. Following that, new iPhones arrive, while older iPhones (the ones that qualify) get the latest software.
It’s also worth noting that eager users will be able to try out the beta versions of iOS 16 in the summer. Developer Beta is available for download.
