Apple introduced four new models in the iPhone 13 lineup, two new iPads and an updated Apple Watch during its 14 September California Streaming event that kicked off at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET. Apple still left some rumored products waiting in the wings. However, it’s for discussion at a future product event rumored to be coming later this fall.

Even now, many Apple product’s launches are not grabbing as much attention as the iPhone 13 series. In addition, there are some rumors that there are plenty of similarities between the iPhone 13 series and the iPhone 12 models. But the fact is that there are still noteworthy enough changes – especially on the iPhone 13 pro models – to entice users to upgrade. In this blog, you will get complete information about the Apple iPhone 13 Launch Event.
