Apple simply despatched out invitations for the iPhone 13 occasion. The keynote will probably 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 will 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 must always count on to see Apple announce. There’ll, after all, be a brand new iPhone mannequin — doubtless referred to as the iPhone 13 — a pair of latest iPads, new AirPods, Apple Watch Sequence 7, and the official launch of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15. 

Here is the whole lot you could 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 reside stream will begin at 10am PT, 1pm ET. 

How one can 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 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 present 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 at present housed. Earlier this yr 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 beneath the show — just 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. Nonetheless, neither of these appear doubtless this yr. 

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has used his weekly Energy On publication to cowl what he expects to see within the iPhone 13 based mostly on data from his sources, and proper now the gist of the iPhone improve is that this: Smaller notch, 120Hz refresh price for the iPhone 13 Professional and Professional Max, an always-on show just 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 function the place the background is blurred by the digital camera system including depth between the topic and the background. Gurman claims the function will probably be referred to as Cinematic Video. 

There will probably 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. 

Now we 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 yr we count on to see the Apple Watch Sequence 7 introduced. Based on Mark Gurman, the Sequence 7 will function a model new design — a primary for the Apple Watch — with flatter edges on the perimeters and the general measurement will improve by 1mm. Which means as a substitute of 40mm and 44mm sizes as is the case proper now, the Sequence 7 will are available in 41mm and 45mm sizes. 

An apparent facet impact of the bigger footprint will probably be a much bigger show that can enable Apple and app makers to indicate 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 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} within the Sequence 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 deal with 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 facet of the iPad Mini, which can 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 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 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 buying season. 

I count on Apple may convey among the AirPods Professional-level options to the entry-level wi-fi earbuds, corresponding to energetic noise cancelation or spatial audio. No less than, 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 just lately launched Galaxy Buds 2 have all the identical 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 trying ahead to Apple asserting subsequent week? Tell us within the feedback under.
