Afterwards, it more or less takes ten days till the devices are finally made available on the luxury markets, and seeing that the debut day always tends to be Friday one way or another. Thus, 22 Sept, 2023 is the date that needs to be marked for in-store release.
Even though Apple follows a strict fall schedule that has not been changed in ages, we still have to wait for the official notice from the stewards of the franchise to be sure of the launch date, as it is possible that they may slightly change it this time around.
