iPhone 13 lauch event 2021: After several leaks and lots of speculation, one of Apple's biggest hardware launch events of the year is set to take place on Tuesday, when the company is expected to launch the iPhone 13 series, a new Apple Watch 7 and the AirPods 3 wireless earbuds. The company is expected to launch the latest version of its iOS 15 operating system ahead of the new iPhone models that could be available for sale in the coming weeks too.

If you're waiting to see what Apple launches at its 'California Streaming' live event on September 14, here's a list of devices that Apple could be launching, according to Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who highlighted these changes in his weekly Power On newsletter:

iPhone 13 series

At this year's Apple launch event, the company is likely to announce the iPhone 13 series, with a slightly redesigned notch, but an otherwise similar design compared to its predecessor, Gurman notes. The new iPhone 13 series is expected to sport new camera features, LTPO screens for higher refresh rates, and feature a faster A15 chipset. The iPhone is also expected to feature satellite connectivity for emergency purposes only which could arrive by next year, according to Gurman. However, it appears that the company's iPhone models could come in the same sizes - 5.4 inches, 6.1 inches and 6.7 inches for the iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max, according to Gurman.


Apple Watch Series 7

The Apple Watch Series 7 could get a little larger this year, with the company expected to switch the 40mm model with a 41mm one and the 44mm model with a 45mm model. Apart from the size, it looks like the new Apple Watch could come with a new S7 processor, smaller bezels, 16 percent more pixels and a new flatter screen and edges -- the new watch might feature design elements from the company's recent iPad and iPhone models, according to Gurman. The Apple Watch 7 is not likely to sport big health tracking upgrades, and a temperature sensor could arrive sometime next year, with a blood pressure sensor and blood sugar monitor to follow suit.


AirPods 3

The successor to the company's AirPods 2 could be arriving tomorrow, and the company might have a few tricks up its sleeve this time around. While the AirPods and AirPods 2 had a specific design, the new AirPods 3 could actually resemble Apple's AirPods Pro earbuds, according to Gurman. It looks like Apple has been working on redesigning the AirPods 3 case as well, and could be the company's biggest change to the series so far.


iOS 15

Aside from the hardware expected to launch tomorrow, Apple might also launch its newest iOS 15 operating system update tomorrow, for eligible iPhone models starting with the iPhone 6s / iPhone 6s Plus and the iPhone SE, all the way up to the iPhone 12 series. Users can expect to see features like Live Text, SharePlay, improves notifications and DND modes, Spatial Audio on FaceTime, Portrait Mode on FaceTime, interactive globe on Apple Maps that show you 3D details, immersive walking directions on Apple Maps, etc
