It’s been rumoured for weeks, but now we now know exactly when Apple will reveal its all-new iPhone line-up. The Californian technology firm has just sent out invites to the world’s media to its next event, which will be streamed on Tuesday September 14. That’s the date Apple fans need to pop in their diary to find out what the secretive tech giant has been working on.

The invite, which has just dropped into our inbox, reads “California Streaming. Join us for a special event broadcasting from Apple Park.” And in a tweet, Greg “Joz” Joswiak, Apple’s Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing added: “We’re California Streaming on September 14th. See you real soon.”

Of course, just like last year, this won’t be the usual people-packed showcase from the Steve Jobs theatre at Apple Park with Covid restrictions meaning things will be broadcast via a live stream. All will be revealed next week, but ahead of the launch, there has already been plenty of rumours and speculation about what could be coming.

Apple is expected to reveal four new iPhone models, which will supersede the iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max currently available on store shelves. As well as the new smartphones, tipsters claim Apple has a redesigned Apple Watch Series 7 to reveal on-stage. Details about when iPhone owners can download the free iOS 15 upgrade are also likely to be announced during the live stream from the Steve Jobs Theatre.

When it comes to the next iPhone, purportedly dubbed iPhone 13, the biggest upgrade could be the new screen. Apple switched the standard iPhone to OLED technology last year and in 2021 it could be all about faster refresh rates. In fact, most experts believe that the iPhone 13 Pro models will get speedy 120Hz technology included.

This speedy screen has been available on the iPad Pro for a while and it would make sense for the iPhone to follow with a similar technology – something that will also make the entire experience feel faster and less stuttery.

Other changes could include a faster A15 processor which will not only improve the overall performance but also boost the battery life plus faster charging could be arriving via the firm’s MagSafe connector which launched alongside the iPhone 12 last year.

The new iPhone 13 range may not be the only products Apple reveals at its keynote with rumours also suggesting that an updated Apple Watch could also be the star of the show.

This upgraded tech timepiece could get a completely refreshed design along with a bigger screen and more health features.

We could also see the launch of a new MacBook Pro with Apple’s 2nd generation of processor tucked inside and there’s also rumours about a new iPad lineup including a rebooted Mini.

Express.co.uk will bring you all the news live from next week’s keynote so watch this space for full details.
