I am going to go away any sleuthing of the invite to others. 

Whereas others attempt to determine the invite’s that means, I’ve a good suggestion of what we must always count on to see Apple announce. There’ll, in fact, be a brand new iPhone mannequin — seemingly known as the iPhone 13 — new AirPods, Apple Watch Collection 7, and the official launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. There’s additionally an opportunity we’ll see a pair of recent iPads introduced, or Apple may maintain them for an October occasion the place a brand new MacBook Professional would make its debut as effectively. 

Here is every thing that you must know in regards to the newest iPhone announcement, together with when to tune in, the place to stream it, and the entire {hardware} we count on to see Apple announce subsequent week. 

When is the iPhone 13 keynote?

Apple’s iPhone 13 occasion will happen on Sept. 14, 2021. The reside stream will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. 

The way to watch

Apple will stream the occasion on its website or by way of the Apple Occasions app on Apple TV. The occasion may even be streamed on YouTube, which we have embedded above so that you can watch the occasion. 

Now that you recognize when and the place to look at Apple’s subsequent main occasion let’s speak about what we count on. Beginning with the star of the present: the iPhone 13

iPhone 13

Apple’s subsequent iPhone will make its debut on Tuesday. We count on the brand new cellphone shall be known as the iPhone 13. The brand new iPhone ought to look much like the present iPhone 12 lineup however with a smaller notch on the prime of the display the place the Face ID sensor array is at the moment housed. Earlier this yr, there have been some rumors and hypothesis that Apple would carry again a Contact ID fingerprint sensor, however as a substitute of placing it within the sleep/wake button, it might be underneath the show — much like what Android phones have had for the previous few years. There have been additionally early experiences that Apple may ditch any kind of charging port altogether. Nonetheless, neither of these appear seemingly this yr. 

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has used his weekly Power On newsletter to cowl what he expects to see within the iPhone 13 primarily based on info from his sources. Proper now, the gist of the iPhone improve is that this: Smaller notch, 120Hz refresh charge for the iPhone 13 Professional and Professional Max, an always-on show much like the Apple Watch is a robust possibly, and upgraded digicam options. 

Extra particularly, the digicam will now have the power to seize video utilizing a portrait mode-like function the place the background is blurred by the digicam system including depth between the topic and the background. Gurman claims the function shall be known as Cinematic Video. 

There shall be 4 fashions of the iPhone 13, more likely to be known as the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Professional and iPhone 13 Professional Max. 

We’ve got a extra thorough roundup of all the iPhone 13 rumors and expected features on your studying pleasure. 

Apple Watch Collection 7

Apple has continued to replace and innovate its smartwatch alongside the iPhone yearly, and this yr we count on to see the Apple Watch Collection 7 introduced. According to Mark Gurman, the Collection 7 will function a model new design — a primary for the Apple Watch — with flatter edges on the perimeters, and the general dimension will enhance by 1mm. Meaning as a substitute of 40mm and 44mm sizes; the Collection 7 will are available in 41mm and 45mm sizes, as is the case proper now. 

An apparent facet impact of the bigger footprint shall be an even bigger show that can permit Apple and app makers to point out extra info on the watch face. 

It is unclear if the change in sizes implies that present watch bands, one thing Apple Watch customers have a tendency to take a position closely in, will stay appropriate or if customers must purchase new bands. The final time Apple elevated the scale of the Apple Watch, the bands remained appropriate, so let’s hope that is the case as soon as once more. 

Do not count on any new health-related {hardware} in Collection 7, based on Gurman. 


It has been rumored that Apple has had a pair of the entry-level AirPods able to go for fairly a while, however for no matter cause, the discharge retains getting pushed again. There is not any higher time to announce a brand new pair of AirPods than with a brand new iPhone as we head into the vacation purchasing season. 

I count on Apple to carry some AirPods Professional-level options to the entry-level wi-fi earbuds, resembling lively noise cancelation or spatial audio. No less than, that is what I hope Apple does now that the corporate is dealing with extra competitors in relation to utterly wi-fi earbuds on the low finish. Samsung’s not too long ago launched Galaxy Buds 2 have the entire identical options because the AirPods Professional however price $100 much less.

Over the previous few weeks, there had been hypothesis that Apple would solely maintain a single occasion this fall. Nonetheless, over the weekend, Mark Gurman reported that he now expects Apple to carry a second occasion, seemingly in October, the place the corporate will announce two new iPads and a brand new MacBook Professional. 

A giant possibly: iPad and iPad Mini

The bottom mannequin iPad is due for its yearly refresh, and former experiences have claimed the iPad Mini is getting a brand new design to match that of the iPad Air. If Apple holds true to its earlier sample for the bottom iPad, there will not be any main design adjustments. As an alternative, the updates will give attention to efficiency enhancements by bringing the inner specs present. 

As for the iPad Mini, it ought to see a serious replace to its design. The house button will lastly disappear, with Apple as a substitute utilizing a Contact ID fingerprint reader within the sleep/wake button on the facet of the iPad Mini, which is able to now function flat edges. With the house button out of the best way, the show will take up the vast majority of the entrance of the pill. With slimmer bezels, there’s some hypothesis that the scale of the show — at the moment 7.9-inches — may enhance for the primary time on the iPad Mini. 

We’ll have loads of protection surrounding the bulletins subsequent week. Within the meantime, what are you trying ahead to Apple saying subsequent week? Tell us within the feedback beneath.
