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

Whereas others attempt to determine the invite’s which 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 — possible referred to 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. 

This is every little thing it’s worthwhile to 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 stay stream will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. 

Methods to watch

Apple will stream the occasion on its web site or by the Apple Occasions app on Apple TV. Prior to now, Apple has additionally streamed the occasion on YouTube. We are going to 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 at the moment anticipated to be referred to 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 high of the display screen 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 convey again a Contact ID fingerprint sensor, however as a substitute of placing it within the sleep/wake button, it might be below the show — much like what Android telephones have had for the previous couple of years. There have been additionally early stories that Apple may ditch any form of charging port altogether. Nevertheless, neither of these appear possible 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 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 powerful 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 shall be referred to as Cinematic Video. 

There shall 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 have now 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 count on to see the Apple Watch Collection 7 introduced. In response to Mark Gurman, the Collection 7 will characteristic a model new design — a primary for the Apple Watch — with flatter edges on the edges and the general measurement will improve by 1mm. Meaning as a substitute 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 shall be a much 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 signifies that present watch bands, one thing Apple Watch customers have a tendency to speculate closely in, will stay appropriate or if customers must purchase new bands. The final time Apple elevated the dimensions 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} within the Collection 7, in response to Gurman. 

iPad and iPad Mini

The bottom mannequin iPad is due for its yearly refresh, and former stories 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 a substitute, the updates will concentrate on 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 a substitute utilizing a Contact ID fingerprint reader within the sleep/wake button on the aspect of the iPad Mini, which can 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 dimensions of the show — at the moment 7.9-inches — may 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 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 may convey among the AirPods Professional-level options to the entry-level wi-fi earbuds, reminiscent of lively noise cancelation or spatial audio. At the least, that is what I hope Apple does now that the corporate is dealing with extra competitors in the case of fully wi-fi earbuds on the low finish. Samsung’s lately launched Galaxy Buds 2 have the entire 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 asserting subsequent week? Tell us within the feedback beneath.
