Apple officially announced its “California Streaming” launch event.
Apple officially announced its online-only “California Streaming” launch event which will be streamed from Apple Park.
Apple’s online-only event will be held on September 14 at 10:00 am PT (September 15 at 1:00 am PHT). This marked the 2nd year in a row that the company has held its annual September event completely virtually because of the pandemic.
The said event will be live-streamed across Apple’s website, on Apple’s YouTube channel, and through the Apple TV application on Mac, iPhone, Apple TV, and iPad.
What to expect?
At this year’s online-only event, Apple was expected to officially take the wraps off of the most awaited iPhone 13 series. Apple’s new iPhone was expected to bring a handful of new features.
Also, the Apple Watch Series 7 was likely to be announced during the said event. With a larger display and an all-new design, the Apple Watch Series 7 was shaping up to be a notable update.
The company was also planning new AirPods that could be announced at the said event. 9to5Mac reported that Apple’s AirPods 3 were rumored to feature a design similar to AirPods Pro but without replaceable eartips.
Other possible hardware announcements include a new entry-level iPad and a new iPad mini. However, the public should not expect new Macs to be announced at the said event, with Apple likely saving those for a separate online-only event in October or November this year.
Finally, Apple was also expected to announce the official release dates for its next round of software updates during the said event — including watchOS 8, iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and tvOS 15.
On the other hand, macOS Monterey was likely not coming until sometime later this fall.
