Apple’s California Streaming Event Is Set To Take Place On September 14
The online event will be broadcasted from Apple Park, Apple’s corporate headquarters.
After weeks of intense speculation and rumors, Apple has finally announced that its next special event will take place on Tuesday, September 14 at at 1 PM ET. The event is called California Streaming, and it will be broadcasted from Apple Park, the corporate headquarters of Apple.
The event invitation page shows a glowing Apple logo floating over a lake against a darkening sky. The logo hides a clever Easter egg that you can reveal by tapping it on an ARKit-compatible iOS device. When you do that, the ARKit viewer pops up, rendering an augmented reality version of the logo over your surroundings. You can then zoom into the logo and enter the image on the invitation page. Pretty cool stuff!
iPhone 13 Will Be The Star Of The Show
It’s no secret that Apple will introduce a new iPhone at this year’s fall event. Apple’s iPhone 13 models (a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max) are expected to be very similar to the iPhone 12 models that were released last year.
The biggest change will likely be the 120Hz ProMotion display, but Apple will almost certainly reserve it for the Pro models. Besides a high refresh rate screen, Apple customers can look forward to a smaller notch, the A15 chip, faster 5G technology, and improved cameras.
More Announcements To Look Forward To
Besides the refresh of the entire iPhone lineup, the California Streaming event is expected to introduce the first redesign of the Apple Watch in years. Thanks to a new lamination technique, the Apple Watch Series 7 will bring the display closer to the cover glass, making it look even more stunning than before.
The AirPods 3 have reportedly been in mass production since August, so the event provides the perfect opportunity for their introduction. Their design is rumored to be much closer to the AirPods Pro, and they may get active noise cancellation to make the redesign feel more justified.
