Apple simply despatched out invitations for the iPhone 13 occasion. The keynote can be fully 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 and decipher the invite for hints and an underlying theme. I am going to go away any sleuthing of the invite to others. 

Whereas others strive to determine the invite’s that means, I’ve a good suggestion of what we should always anticipate to see Apple announce. There’ll, after all, be a brand new iPhone mannequin — probably known as the iPhone 13 — a pair of recent iPads, new AirPods, Apple Watch Collection 7, and the official launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. 

Here is all the things it is advisable know in regards to the newest iPhone announcement, together with when to tune in, the place to stream it, and the entire {hardware} we anticipate 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 right way to watch

Apple will stream the occasion on its web site or by way of the Apple Occasions app on Apple TV. Up to now, Apple has additionally streamed the occasion on YouTube. We are going to embed the reside stream right here as soon as Apple publishes it. 

iPhone 13

The star of the present would be the new iPhone, which is at the moment anticipated to 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 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 would be beneath the show — much like what Android telephones have had for the previous couple of years. There have been additionally early reviews that Apple might ditch any kind of charging port altogether. Nonetheless, neither of these appear probably this 12 months. 

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has used his weekly Energy On publication to cowl what he expects to see within the iPhone 13 primarily based on data from his sources, and proper now the gist of the iPhone improve is that this: Smaller notch, 120Hz refresh fee for the iPhone 13 Professional and Professional Max, an always-on show much like the Apple Watch is a robust perhaps, 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 can be known as Cinematic Video. 

There can 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 a extra thorough roundup of all of the iPhone 13 rumors and anticipated options for you studying pleasure. 

Apple Watch Collection 7

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

An apparent aspect impact of the bigger footprint can be an even bigger show that can enable Apple and app makers to point out extra data 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 appropriate or if customers should 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 anticipate any new health-related {hardware} within the Collection 7, in accordance with Gurman. 

iPad and iPad Mini

The bottom mannequin iPad is due for its yearly refresh, and former reviews 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 modifications. 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 nearly all of the entrance of the pill. With slimmer bezels, there may be some hypothesis that the scale of the show — at the moment 7.9-inches — might improve 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 is no 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 anticipate Apple might deliver among the AirPods Professional-level options to the entry-level wi-fi earbuds, equivalent to lively noise cancelation or spatial audio. At the very least, that is what I hope Apple does now that the corporate is going through extra competitors with regards to utterly wi-fi earbuds on the low finish. Samsung’s not too long ago launched Galaxy Buds 2 have the entire similar options because the AirPods Professional, however value $100 much less.

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.
