For those unable to watch, MacRumors will be providing full event coverage both on MacRumors.com and the MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

Major design changes are not expected for the ‌iPhone 13‌, but rumors suggest that we can count on 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.

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.

New MacBook Pros and iPads are also on the horizon, but Apple is expected to hold multiple fall events this year so it is unlikely that the company will reveal everything in September.
