iPhone to be Launched On 14 September, Apple Confirms
Apple has sent out invitations to its next special event, which is widely expected to be the unveiling of the new iPhone, iPad mini, and Apple Watch Series 7.
The event, simply titled California streaming - perhaps a play on California Dreamin'? - appears to follow the format of recent Apple launches, offering an online stream rather than an in-person event.
The broadcast will take place on September 14th at 10 a.m. Pacific time, giving us an event to pin all of the latest rumors to.
The iPhone's next generation is on the way. It's unclear whether it'll be called the iPhone 12S (as it should be) or the iPhone 13. Pundits are split on whether Apple will use the S moniker or use 13 at all, given that it is considered unlucky for some.
The new iPhone is expected to improve screen technology by offering a faster 120Hz ProMotion display with an adaptive refresh rate, while rumors also suggest that the notch will be reduced in size.
The camera could be redesigned, and the introduction of a new generation of hardware powering the phone will set the tone for Apple's devices in the coming year.
The Apple Watch Series 7 could have a more squared design, similar to the current generation of iPhone models, and more enhanced sensors packed into it for a new range of functionality.
The iPad mini hasn't been updated in a long time, so an update to Apple's smaller model would be welcome.
There will almost certainly be a lot more packed into the event, including an expansion of services, more talk about connectivity between home devices, confirmation of the iOS 15 roll-out, and much more.
We're expecting a second Apple event focused on Mac later in September, so it'll be a busy few weeks in Cupertino.
