If there is always the right event, it’s what happens in September, and only last year it “turned” its back to normal and happened in October, with the presentation of the new iPhone, and this happens today, at 6 pm in Portugal and 13h in Brasília. The presentation event that Apple has scheduled for today will continue to be exclusively online, due to the Corona virus pandemic, but that will not be any less exciting.
The event is entitled California Streaming and in addition to returning to normal, there are several news that we should know today. In addition to the much talked about iPhone 13, it is very likely that the new watch, the Apple Watch 7 will also be presented. In addition to these two products, the new iPad Mini 6 and a new AirPods 3 headset can also be presented.
Once again, being an event broadcast entirely online, we will be able to follow it here on our website, through Apple’s Youtube channel, as well as through the company’s website or the Apple TV application. Still not sure what will be presented? We leave more details below.
iPhone 13 in four versions
Apple has already got us used to launching several iPhone models, but this year it will launch them all at the same event. We should know the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Yes, that should be the name.
According to specifications that have been released so far, the iPhone 13 mini should have a 5.4-inch screen at 90Hz and the new A15 Bionic processor, while the battery should have 2406 mAh. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will feature the same 6.1 inch screen as well as the same A15 processor and the same 3095 mAh battery.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max should be the best version, with a 6.7-inch screen at 120Hz, the same processor, but with a 4352 mAh battery. Fortunately, all models should support 25W fast charging and the new MagSafe charger, and like its predecessors, the iPhone 13 should not have a charger in the box.
One of the news may be that, for the first time, there will no longer be a configuration with 64GB of storage, with the possibility of 1TB being added.
Apple Watch 7
This new generation of watches can be distinguished in design, as they undergo a substantial change compared to previous generations. Everything points to the Apple Watch 7 having flat sides for the first time.
In terms of screen, they should be a little bigger, as well as sizes will also be, 41mm and 45mm. They will also have an improved processor, as well as there will be a sensor to measure body temperature, and there will be news regarding health monitoring, which is one of the main focuses of the watch.
AirPods 3 and iPad mini 6
For some time now, there has been talk of a new Apple headset, but it was more recently that it gained momentum for today’s presentation through the well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, when he stated that there would also be a 1TB version. Most talked about has been the iPad Mini 6.
The iPad mini 6, which even had some images released, should have a 8.4-inch screen, which is a significant increase over the previous 7.9-inch. Also in terms of design it should distinguish itself from its predecessor, meeting last year’s iPad Air, without the Home button.
In terms of hardware, it should equal the iPad Air, with an A14 processor, support for 5G and Apple Pencil, but in a smaller format to be homogeneous. One possibility that would be innovative at Apple would be a TouchID on the iPad’s power button, which would offer the possibility of fingerprint unlocking without the Home button.
iOS 15, iPadOS 15, WatchOS 8 and MacOS Monterey
What also happens at this September event is the release of new versions of the operating systems, which were already presented during the WWDC.
Therefore, iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 should arrive on the same release date as the iPhone and also the iPad mini 6. Obviously the same will happen with WatchOS 8, while MacOs Monterey could also be released on the same date, but without necessarily bringing news in terms of hardware.
In the limit, a later date for mobile operating systems may be indicated and some hardware update will be announced later to join the arrival of the update.
