Here’s everything we know about the Apple September launch event:
iPhone 13 series
The primary attraction of the Apple September launch event will undoubtedly be the iPhone 13 series. It’s time for Apple’s annual iPhone refresh and this year, there could be some design changes apart from the usual hardware upgrades.
Rumours suggest that Apple could go with a smaller notch this time around for the iPhone 13, which should be welcome news for those who dislike the giant notches that iPhones still have.
Reports suggest that the iPhone 13 series could support satellite connectivity, allowing users to make voice calls with cell signal. This could potentially allow users to connect to Starlink or OneWeb satellites to use the internet, make calls or send messages. However, it’s not clear exactly what will be supported by iPhone 13, so we will have to wait for the official launch to take place.
Other reports hint at bigger batteries and improved 5G support, with the A15 chipset powering the upcoming iPhones.
Apple Watch Series 7

According to reports, the Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to sport a flat-edged chassis this time, drawing inspiration from the iPhone 12 series.
However, there are rumours that Apple could delay the Watch Series 7’s launch due to production issues with the new design. The company could still launch the watch at the event but delay the sales as it irons out the production issues.
Fans of the small iPad might have a reason to rejoice, as Apple is said to launch a 2021 version with updated hardware. According to reports, the iPad mini could be powered by the A15 chipset, which is also expected to power the iPhone 13 series.
In addition to this, there could be an entry-level iPad as well, powered by the A13 chipset. At the moment, though, it’s not clear if Apple will indeed announce these new iPads at the September event, or a couple of months later. We should know more in this regard in the coming days.
iOS 15, watchOS 8 and more
Apple is expected to announce the general availability of iOS 15, watchOS 8 and tvOS 15 at the September event. It had announced these updates back at the WWDC 2021 event in June, and since then, several beta versions have been released for developers and enthusiast users.
