Apple Event on Tuesday Will Reveal These Long Awaited Products
Apple has now sent out invites to its "California Streaming" special event, set to be take place on Tuesday, September 14, and the event is expected to see the reveal of several long-awaited products.
Rumors from over the past year have indicated that Apple will announce the iPhone 13 lineup, Apple Watch Series 7, and third-generation AirPods at its September special event.
iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro Models
Apple's next-generation of smartphones are believed to include four models in the same sizes as last year's iPhone 12 lineup, with a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, and a 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Although major design changes are not expected this year, all models are expected to feature a smaller notch, a faster "A15" chip, Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, a new 5G chip from Qualcomm, larger batteries, reverse wireless charging, and a large number of camera hardware upgrades.
The iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 are expected to offer a new, diagonal camera layout, while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro max are expected to feature 120Hz-capable ProMotion displays with always-on functionality, ProRes video recording, up to 1TB of storage.

Apple Watch Series 7
The Apple Watch Series 7 is expected to feature a number of upgrades, including a new design with squared-off edges, larger casing sizes with bigger displays, updated display technology, improved Ultra Wideband connectivity, a smaller, faster processor, a bigger battery, new watch faces, and potentially new color options.

Apple's third-generation AirPods are expected to have an updated design that is closer to the AirPods Pro with shorter stems and a wider, shorter charging case, but will continue to be a more affordable option without Active Noise Cancellation. Other new features could include a next-generation wireless chip, force sensor controls, and a pressure relief system. See our guide on the third-generation AirPods for more detailed information.
