When is the Apple Event September 2021?

Based on the 2021 calendar, the Labor Day rule would put the September Apple event (and the unveiling of the iPhone 13) on Sept. 8. CNETiPhone 13 release date: When will we see Apple's new iPhone?

But if you can't wait to get the new watch, you may have to. My colleague Debby Wu and I reported that the new display is causing production headaches. When that happens with a new product, there are typically three outcomes: The announcement is delayed until the issues are fixed, the product launches on time in small quantities, or the device is announced on time but goes on sale later.

I'm led to believe that we'll see an announcement during the usual September event alongside the iPhone, but there will be a mix of the models shipping late or in small quantities.

The Apple Watch Series 7 will feature a much more dramatic design change that will make it clearly distinguishable from prior Apple Watch models. It will come in new 41mm and 45mm size options, up from 40 and 44mm, and feature updated screen technology and a flat-edged design similar to the iPhone 12. New health sensor features aren't expected, but the new model is likely to have a faster processor and possibly improved battery life.

Based on past event dates, the most likely date for the ‌iPhone 13‌ and Apple Watch Series 7 event is Tuesday, September 14. For everything you can expect in the new Apple Watch, check out our dedicated guide.

When Apple released iOS 14.5 in April, it introduced the ability to unlock your iPhone with Face ID while wearing a mask, as long as you are wearing an Apple Watch. Here are some troubleshooting tips.

iPhone 13 release date: Apple's new iPhone is coming soon

CNET 06 September, 2021 - 05:57pm

The iPhone 13, shown in this render, could be arriving soon.

Don't get too excited, but we may have a guess for the iPhone 13 release date. After sorting through all the clues and rumors, we expect Apple's next iPhone, said to be called the iPhone 13, to arrive soon for the tech giant's fall event alongside the Apple Watch 7 and AirPods 3. But, keep in mind that we've haven't heard any official details from Apple yet. 

Similar to last year's announcement of the iPhone 12, the iPhone 13 event could be online-only. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman speculated in his Power On newsletter in July that Apple's next event will be completely virtual because of the tech giant's rumored decision to delay its return to in-person work due to rising COVID-19 cases

Apple originally said that all employees would be required to come into the office three days a week starting in September. Gurman says that if Apple stuck with the September time frame, an in-person iPhone 13 event would have been "plausible." Now, he expects another online-only event. 

Although the event may be all virtual, we're expecting to see four versions of the new phone: the iPhone 13, the iPhone 13 Mini, the iPhone 13 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. 

Apple's first event of 2021 happened in April, where we saw new iPads, colorful iMacs, a purple iPhone 12 and AirTags trackers. Then came WWDC in June, where we caught a first glimpse of iOS 15. And there was no word from Apple on the iPhone 13 at either event.

But no one was expecting the iPhone 13 to be announced that early. So when can we expect Apple to unveil its next flagship phones? Apple has yet to hint at any iPhone 13 event date. Based on Apple's history, however, we can typically predict when the company's iPhone events will happen and make an educated guess on a release date based on that. 

While the pandemic changed the usual course for 2020, marking the first September Apple event in eight years without an iPhone due to production delays, Kuo predicts that 2021 will see a return to the company's typical cadence. A March 24 report based on supply chain information also points to a late September iPhone 13 release date. And an April report from DigiTimes cited industry insiders who said production for the phones' new chips is ahead of schedule, which should put the phone release back on a familiar, pre-COVID timeline.

If all of this is true, we can expect to get a first look at the iPhone 13 at an event at some point in September.

In a note to investors, reported on by MacRumors, Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives revealed that Apple may be planning to release the iPhone 13 in "the third week of September." This would mean some time between Monday, Sept. 13 and Friday, Sept. 20. 

Apple usually holds its events on Tuesdays or Wednesdays, and iPhone release dates typically are set about a week and a half after Apple announces new devices. If this holds true and Ives is correct, the iPhone 13 could launch on Tuesday, Sept. 14 or Wednesday, Sept. 15. 

We won't know if this is true until Apple announces an event and shows off the phones. But if you want to plan ahead and save up for an iPhone 13, we'd bet on the September timeline -- at least for now.

Apple Watch 7 will be hard to find – but it may still accompany iPhone 13 at launch

TechRadar 06 September, 2021 - 03:48pm

It's the fancy new display that may be holding up Apple Watch 7 units

Apple will announce the 'Apple Watch Series 7' in its usual September slot alongside the new iPhone 13 series, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. But some models may ship late or in small quantities:

"I’m led to believe that we’ll see an announcement during the usual September event alongside the iPhone, but there will be a mix of the models shipping late or in small quantities. That shouldn’t be too unfamiliar to those who witnessed the original Apple Watch launch in 2015."

The previously reported production difficulties had sparked speculation about whether Apple may delay the announcement and release. But it looks like the iPhone maker is opting for a constrained rollout instead.

It will reportedly have a bigger screen, moving to 41mm and 45mm from the current 40mm and 44mm. The screen is also expected to sit closer to the watch’s glass surface by using a new lamination technique. Apple Watch 7 would also include flat edges and an updated processor.

Combined with the typical demand for updated Apple products, the new Apple Watch would likely be tough to find initially. During the first-generation Apple Watch launch in 2015, pre-orders sold out quickly, and availability was back-ordered for months before Apple’s supply chain finally caught up with demand.

Apple is allegedly planning at least one virtual event in September, showcasing the iPhone 13 along with the new Apple Watch. Other expected 2021 products include AirPods 3, a new iPad 2021, an updated iPad Air 5, an iPad mini 6 and a refreshed MacBook Pro 14-inch.

Given the historical timing of Apple events, the Cupertino company could send invites for the iPhone event as early as this week.
