Every year in September, Apple announces its new iPhones, but last year, the big event happened virtually in October — because, you know, the whole global pandemic thing. Things are back on track, and the company just announced that the iPhone 13 launch event will stream live on Sept. 14 at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET.
Apple sent out invites and teased the event with the description "California streaming," likely in reference to the fact that it'll be a virtual event at Apple Park in California once again.
Nothing is set in stone until everything is announced at the big event, but we're expecting to see four iPhone 13 models, as we did with the iPhone 12: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, and iPhone 13 Mini. According to the rumor, the iPhone 13 is likely to have enhanced camera and video features, 120Hz displays on the pro models, a smaller notch, WiFi 6E support, bigger batteries, and maybe even a stronger MagSafe charger.
Along with the new iPhones, Apple is likely going to announce the Apple Watch Series 7 and AirPods 3, as well as the rumored new iPad Mini — of course, all of that depends on the production issues Apple has been facing. And unfortunately, the price of the iPhones might be higher than expected due to the global chip shortage.
But hey, at least it's all happening on time this year.
