Apple simply despatched out invitations for the iPhone 13 occasion. The keynote shall 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 attempt 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 — doubtless known as the iPhone 13 — a pair of latest iPads, new AirPods, Apple Watch Collection 7, and the official launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. 

This is every little thing you could know concerning 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 stay stream will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. 

The right 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 at present 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 screen the place the Face ID sensor array is at present housed. Earlier this 12 months there have been some rumors and hypothesis that Apple would carry again a Contact ID fingerprint sensor, however as an alternative of placing it within the sleep/wake button, it would be underneath the show — much like what Android telephones have had for the previous few years. There have been additionally early studies that Apple may ditch any type of charging port altogether. Nonetheless, neither of these appear doubtless 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 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 much like the Apple Watch is a powerful possibly, and upgraded digicam options. 

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

There shall be 4 fashions of the iPhone 13, prone 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 line with 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 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 41mm and 45mm sizes. 

An apparent aspect impact of the bigger footprint shall 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 take a position 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 anticipate any new health-related {hardware} within the Collection 7, based on 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 modifications. As an alternative, the updates will deal with 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 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 way in which, 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 present 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 purpose, 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 buying season. 

I anticipate Apple may carry among 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 dealing with extra competitors with regards to utterly wi-fi earbuds on the low finish. Samsung’s lately 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 wanting ahead to Apple saying subsequent week? Tell us within the feedback beneath.
