The wait is finally over. Apple’s iPhone 13 event will go into action on Tuesday, September 14th at 1PM ET, according to the smartphone giant. The event, under the name “California streaming,” will take place as a virtual event for the second year in a row from Apple Park.
Similar to the size of the iPhone 12, Apple enthusiasts should expect to witness four iPhone 13 models: a regular iPhone 13, a 13 Pro, 13 Pro Max, and possibly for the last time ever, an iPhone 13 Mini.
Thanks to the number of rumors and reports circulating, we have a pretty good picture of what to expect from the new iPhone models. High refresh rate screens will be available, offering an advanced tech experience that has been exclusively found with Androids.
The new smartphone will reportedly also boast a smaller display notches and refined camera quality.
Currently, it remains extremely difficult to dissect hints from Apple’s event invite. However, The Verge did analyze multiple elements from the invite that might be featured in the new iPhone models.
“The darkening sky might suggest we’ll see improved night mode photography. And perhaps the glowing Apple logo is hinting toward an always-on lock screen for the iPhone,” according to The Verge.
Apple’s senior vice president (SVP) of worldwide marketing, Greg Joswiak, went further into his analysis. Joswiak posted a video on Twitter suggesting that the new iPhone could showcase an astrophotography mode, similar to what Google provides with some of its Pixel devices. Users also took the video as a hint that Apple will explain during the event, which will be the rumored satellite-connectivity feature.
If everything goes according to plan, and Apple does indeed launch the next iPhone in line, then the company will most probably also reveal a release date for iOS 15.
Yet, this isn’t the only project comping up, the next Apple Watch, reportedly under the name of Apple Watch Series 7, will showcase a new design “with flatter edges and larger 41mm and 45mm screens, a 1mm bump from the Series 6,” as seen by The Verge.
“Apple’s next entry-level Air Pods may have a new design that takes cues from the Air Pods Pro. New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros equipped with the company’s custom-designed chips and an SD card slot are also rumored to be on the way,” The Verge added.
So, for Apple users interested in experiencing the advanced version of their smartphone, you won’t have to wait much longer to pick your favorite Apple hardware to purchase this fall.
