Apple recently announced its next hardware showcase is planned for Wednesday, September 15, so we could be just a few days away from finally seeing the rumoured iPhone 13 and other upcoming Apple products for the first time.
How to watch the September 14 Apple event
Like pretty much any big event these days, the entire presentation will be live-streamed on a variety of platforms. The presentation begins Wednesday, September 15 at 3 am AEST, and you can watch live on the official Apple YouTube page, in YouTube’s mobile or smart TV apps, or from the video embed below. You can click “Set Reminder” on the video ahead of time to receive a push notification when the live stream starts.
You can also watch live on Apple’s official website on the day of the event, or in the Apple TV app.
What to expect from the September 15 Apple event
Apple hasn’t confirmed what we’ll see at the event yet, but there’s plenty of speculation that the iPhone 13 will get its official debut here. Rumours indicate the new iPhone line will see all the expected hardware upgrades — faster chipset, better camera, flashier displays, and plenty of new features — but will maintain the size and design of the iPhone 12 family. Considering that Apple historically announces new smartphones in September, it’s likely we’ll know for sure what those upgrades are in just a few days.
The iPhone 13 is the safest bet, but if it is announced, then the also rumoured AirPods 3 and Apple Watch 7 could also make an appearance, as both devices are expected to ship alongside the iPhone 13. If so, Apple will likely want to show off all the new capabilities the next AirPods and Apple Watches can do specifically when paired with the iPhone 13.
Similarly, it wouldn’t be surprising to see new iPad devices if Apple has any ready to reveal, since both iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 will launch simultaneously in the coming weeks.
Less likely — though certainly not off the table — are new Macs. We’re still waiting to see new 16-inch MacBook Pros running on Apple’s new first-party chipsets, as well as the next wave of Mac computers with Apple silicon, but I’d wager Apple wants to give these as-yet-unannounced computers their own event.
Of course, this is all speculation. We could see all — or none — of these products come Tuesday. Luckily, whatever Apple announces, it’ll be easy to watch along live from pretty much any device you own.
