Apple simply despatched out invitations for the iPhone 13 occasion. The keynote might be completely digital and live-streamed on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 10 am PT. The invitations, seen above, have the tagline “California streaming.” As is at all times the case, Apple followers and media try to decipher the invite for hints and an underlying theme. I will go away any sleuthing of the invite to others. 

Whereas others strive to determine the invite’s which means, I’ve a good suggestion of what we should always count on to see Apple announce. There’ll, in fact, be a brand new iPhone mannequin — doubtless referred to as the iPhone 13 — a pair of recent iPads, new AirPods, Apple Watch Sequence 7, and the official launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. 

This is every little thing it’s essential to know concerning the newest iPhone announcement, together with when to tune in, the place to stream it, and all the {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 stay stream will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. 

The way to watch

Apple will stream the occasion on its web site or by means of the Apple Occasions app on Apple TV. Previously, Apple has additionally streamed the occasion on YouTube. We’ll embed the stay stream right here as soon as Apple publishes it. 

iPhone 13

The star of the present would be the new iPhone, which is presently anticipated to be referred to as the iPhone 13. The brand new iPhone ought to look just 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 presently housed. Earlier this 12 months there have been some rumors and hypothesis that Apple would deliver again a Contact ID fingerprint sensor, however as an alternative of placing it within the sleep/wake button, it might be underneath the show — just like what Android telephones have had for the previous few years. There have been additionally early studies that Apple may ditch any kind of charging port altogether. Nonetheless, neither of these appear doubtless this 12 months. 

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has used his weekly Energy On e-newsletter to cowl what he expects to see within the iPhone 13 based mostly on info from his sources, and 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 just like the Apple Watch is a powerful possibly, and upgraded digital camera options. 

Extra particularly, the digital camera will now have the power to seize video utilizing a portrait mode-like characteristic the place the background is blurred by the digital camera system including depth between the topic and the background. Gurman claims the characteristic might be referred to as Cinematic Video. 

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

We now have a extra thorough roundup of all of the iPhone 13 rumors and anticipated options for you studying pleasure. 

Apple Watch Sequence 7

Apple has continued to replace and innovate its smartwatch alongside the iPhone yearly, and this 12 months we count on to see the Apple Watch Sequence 7 introduced. In line with Mark Gurman, the Sequence 7 will characteristic a model new design — a primary for the Apple Watch — with flatter edges on the edges and the general dimension will enhance by 1mm. Which means as an alternative of 40mm and 44mm sizes as is the case proper now, the Sequence 7 will are available 41mm and 45mm sizes. 

An apparent aspect impact of the bigger footprint might be an even bigger show that can permit Apple and app makers to indicate 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 speculate closely in, will stay suitable or if customers should purchase new bands. The final time Apple elevated the scale of the Apple Watch the bands remained suitable, so let’s hope that is the case as soon as once more. 

Do not count on any new health-related {hardware} within the Sequence 7, in accordance with Gurman. 

iPad and iPad Mini

The bottom mannequin iPad is due for its yearly refresh, and former studies 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 interior specs present. 

As for the iPad Mini, it ought to see a significant replace to its design. The house button will lastly disappear, with Apple as an alternative utilizing a Contact ID fingerprint reader within the sleep/wake button on the aspect of the iPad Mini, which is able to now characteristic 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 may be some hypothesis that the scale of the show — presently 7.9-inches — may enhance for the primary time on the iPad Mini. 


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 motive, the discharge retains getting pushed again. There isn’t 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 may deliver a few of the AirPods Professional-level options to the entry-level wi-fi earbuds, corresponding to energetic noise cancelation or spatial audio. A minimum of, that is what I hope Apple does now that the corporate is going through extra competitors relating to utterly wi-fi earbuds on the low finish. Samsung’s lately launched Galaxy Buds 2 have all the similar options because the AirPods Professional, however price $100 much less.

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