Apple will announce the iPhone 13 on September 14

Apple just set the date for its event next week. We're also expecting the Apple Watch Series 7 and AirPods 3.

Labor Day is behind us, which only means one thing: new iPhones are coming.


Apple sent out the following media invitation for a special event set for Tuesday, September 14. The event will once again be virtual.

Apple SVP of marketing Greg Joswiak shared this animated version...

iPhone 13

The headlining announcement will be this year’s iPhones, currently dubbed the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, and iPhone 13 Pro.


Already leaked out

The iPhone 13 has leaked liked crazy this year despite Apple’s best efforts to clamp down on leakers. You can read all about the leaks here and see a boatload of dummy models here.

Sonny Dickson

The TL;DR:

• Same straight edge design

• Improved ultra-wide lens, possibly with OIS

• Smaller notch

• Larger camera bump (with sensor-shift stabilization)

• 120Hz refresh rate

• A15 Bionic chip


Apple Watch Series 7

New Apple Watches usually go hand in hand with new iPhones. No major health sensors are expected to be added to the Apple Watch Series 7, but a new design and larger displays could help drive demand.

Thanks to reputable leaks, we’re confident the Apple Watch Series 7 will sport a design with flat edges and larger displays, available in new 41mm and 45mm models. The screens should display 16 percent more pixels. New watch faces and bands are practically a given.

AirPods 3

The AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro came out in 2019. It’s time Apple updated at least one of its wireless earbuds. The honor will reportedly go to the regular non-Pro AirPods in the form of AirPods 3.


If the leaks are accurate, the AirPods 3 will sport a design cribbed from the AirPods Pro, minus the in-ear tips. That means shorter stems, maybe spatial audio support, and — fingers crossed — active noise cancellation.


New 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros and a redesigned iPad mini 6 with the same design and features as the iPad Air 4 are not expected to make appearances at the September 14 event. Apple will likely host a separate event for them later.
