Apple Finally Announces ‘California Streaming’ Event for September 14
Apple has announced the “California Streaming” event, which will be broadcast on September 14, 2021, at 10 am PT/1 pm ET.
While Apple has not said what will be shown off at the event, there’s a high probability that this event will unveil the iPhone 13 series. Leaks and analysts suggest the upcoming iPhone 13 series will start at $699 with four models available.
Rumored features for the iPhone 13 include a bigger battery, a camera bump, a smaller notch, and a thicker design compared to the iPhone 12 series. The iPhone 13 series is also expected to come preinstalled with iOS 15, Apple’s next major iPhone update, which introduces a slew of new features, such as a SharePlay feature in Facetime, allowing you to listen or watch content with others. Rumors also suggest that this year’s iPhone lineup will also include a 120Hz refresh display but only on the iPhone 13 Pro models.
Along with the new iPhones, it’s possible Apple may unveil a model refresh for its MacBook lineup. Last year, Apple released the first MacBook Air and Pro laptops powered by its own M1 chip. Other products Apple is reportedly working on include an AR/VR hybrid device, which may require an iPhone or another product made by the tech giant to function fully.
