Putting an end to multiple rumours and speculations, Apple has finally revealed the iPhone 13 announcement date. As reported by several American publications, the Cupertino-based tech giant has started sending out invites for its special event. Considering the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic situation, the company will settle for an online-only ‘California Streaming’ event scheduled for September 14, 10:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time (10.30 PM Indian Standard Time).

The invite features a glowing Apple logo in front of a scenic background from the Apple Park office situated in Cupertino, California in the US. It probably doesn’t mean anything, but tech publications across the globe have taken it upon themselves to overanalyse this simple image. According to some, the glowing image hints at an always-on display while others believe the night sky in the background points at astrophotography mode.

Along with the media invite, Apple’s SVP (Senior Vice President) of Marketing, Greg Joswiak, posted an animated teaser for the event on Twitter.

What To Expect From Apple’s California Streaming 2021 Launch Event?

Nothing is confirmed at this point, but along with the iPhone 13 launch, Apple is likely to reveal iOS 15’s release date. If you would like to learn more about iOS 15, head over to our in-depth article related to iOS 15 features. In terms of hardware, the American brand may introduce the Apple Watch Series 7 or add another member to its iPad lineup. After the widespread reports of undesired blooming effect on the latest iPad Pro, Apple is likely to make a switch over to OLED panels in the near future. However, it will be interesting to see if the Cupertino-based company manages to pull that off this year.

For those excited about the upcoming iPhones, you can read everything we know about iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max in our detailed article. Apple will play the catch-up game with Android flagships by introducing OLED screens with a 120Hz refresh rate. It may even bother to shrink down that unsightly notch on the forehead of its iPhones. The new Apple A15 processing chipset may also be on the cards.

If you have seen previous online events from Apple, you would know that the proceedings won’t unfold live. The entire show will be shot in advance and streamed like a coordinated performance on September 14, 2021.
