Apple has unveiled a host of new products in another of its live streamed virtual events.

The headliner of the 14 September Apple Event was without doubt the new range of iPhones – iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max – which Apple described as its best and most powerful handsets to date.

The new Apple Watch Series 7 was also revealed, featuring a screen that curves around the edge of the watch face, as well as a new iPad.

New updates to Apple Fitness+ and new shows for Apple TV+ were also unveiled, plus details about the new operating systems for the Apple Watch, iPad and iPhone.

Rumours suggested that the company was preparing to launch new AirPods, though these did not materialise.

The online live stream of the event can be viewed right here, as well as covered, as it happened, in our live blog below.

iOS 15 release date announced - sort of

One thing that wasn’t mentioned during the Apple Event today was the release date of iOS 15.

Apple said in a press release for its new iPad that the iPadOS 15 operating system will arrive on Monday, 20 September.

It is usually released alongside the latest iOS for the iPhone, so it’s safe to assume that iOS 15 will also come out on that date.
