Apple's iPhone 13, Apple Watch Series 7 event is on September 14

Apple has confirmed it will be holding its annual September event as usual, with the September 14 "California Streaming" event expect to feature the launch of the "iPhone 13," among other products.




As Apple has traditionally done each year, the company will be holding a fall event in September. In an announcement on Tuesday, Apple revealed that the event will take place on September 14 at 10 a.m. Pacific.

The event is probably the first of multiple in the last few months of 2021, following Apple's decision to launch multiple products in three events across three months in 2020. Rumors have suggested there will be at least two Apple Events this fall, possibly with both occurring within September. More likely is an October or November follow-on event, however.

AppleInsider will be covering the event live, providing full analysis during and after the event, and will include details of all of Apple's product launches and updates.

What to expect at the event

While Apple is anticipated to launch many products and updates during its fall event, the biggest draw is almost certainly going to be the iPhone 13."

Traditionally shown during the fall, Apple's 2021 iteration is anticipated to consist of four devices, including the "iPhone 13 mini," "iPhone 13 Pro," and "iPhone 13 Pro Max." Though Apple is rumored to be keeping the same general styling as the previous model, various specification bumps have been touted.





The display may use an always-on design, as well as 120Hz ProMotion, while the cameras on the back have been rumored to use larger lenses and introduce ProRes video support. A shift to the "A15" chip, movement from Lightning to USB-C, and a bigger battery have also been proposed.

A ninth-generation iPad is also on the cards, which may have better specifications, though not necessarily a full design overhaul. The iPad mini 6 may get a redesign, using a larger screen with slimmer bezels and a removed Home button, while also retaining Touch ID on the power button.

The "Apple Watch Series 7" may introduce a flat-face design and a redesigned chassis, a faster processor with improved wireless connectivity, and the ever-rumored glucose monitoring.

Updated AirPods are also anticipated, including an AirPods Pro style design but without active noise cancellation functionality.

M1X-equipped 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros may feature, complete with mini LED backlighting and an upgraded camera. For the desktop, a Mac mini could also surface with the M1X, a refreshed chassis design with a plexiglass-like top panel, color options, and more ports.

    The centre of Apple's promotional images seem to be centered on "the sky," which suggests to me that the rumoured satellite communications is being hinted at here.

    This is strange. Apple.com simply has this announced as "Apple Event" on 9/14. The newsroom page has nothing about it. I don't see any official apple source calling this anything but "Apple Event." Even the embedded twitter video doesn't actually name the event, and even uses the odd/generic hashtag #AppleEvent and not an actual title of the event like the purported "California Streaming." 

    Strange.

    Probably posted a placeholder graphic. It will be fixed soon.

    The invitation graphic indicates to me Apple's entire slate of fall products will be translucent.

    I would agree that the world's largest corporation just screwed up announcing a headline event announcing (tens of?) billions of dollars of their flagship products. This is Big News(tm) and they can't get the announcements timed right? 

    Maybe Apple really is having a hard time finding competent staff.

    That glowing Apple logo seems to indicate that  they are going to announce new Macbooks with mini-LED displays. 

    And that transparency in the logo might indicate under glass fingerprint sensor (for mask situations) or maybe even transparent camera or face id module (seems less likely).

    Clearly the translucent image is because Apple is getting in to digital pets and a digital jellyfish is their first entry. 

    I’m just hoping for a Apple Si 16” MBP.

    Or could it be since everyone is working from home, nobody was sure when exactly it was being held and what the name was?

    another idea: transparency may be related to CSAM & co

    Yes, it is strange. This event coincides with the California Gubernatorial Recall Election at the same day. lol

    Is this made with reality composer?. Does anyone know another desktop-based tool to make these AR environments?

    Or it could be like the past, where Apple gleefully trolled all the people trying to read tea-leaves.

    A blank sky could mean "nothing new here, keep moving along" or we don't know what we are going to do that day so no specifics allows anything or nothing to happen....

    And/or the rumored astrophotography capable camera upgrades. Either way, portrait mode video is definitely hinted at, imo.

    There's a little satellite moving across the sky towards the end of the video.
