It’s official: The next big Apple event is set for September 10, just around the corner. It’s where we’ll likely see the iPhone 11 range it Android and possibly a new Apple Watch — and maybe some surprises.

Invites were sent out to media outlets confirming the September 10 date, which has been rumored for several weeks. The invite shows a colorful Apple logo and text that says “By Innovation Only.”

Apple has historically held its annual iPhone launch event in September, and this year we’re expecting three new iPhones: The iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11, and iPhone 11R. The names are subject to change as they haven’t been confirmed yet. It’s likely a similar story as last year’s iPhone event, where we saw the iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, and iPhone XR.

The iPhones are rumored to have better batteries and improved camera features — particularly with low-light photography — as well as updates to Face ID. The screen sizes and display panels are expected to be the same, with two OLED models and the 11R opting for LCD.

The biggest change is expected to be with the camera. There will be three camera lenses on at least one of the iPhone models, adding a wide-angle lens to the standard camera and telephoto lens. It’s a trend we’re seeing with most smartphones — the LG V50 ThinQ, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and the Huawei P30 Pro all have triple-camera lenses with similar configurations.

Apple may even adopt a feature seen in Huawei and Samsung phones that allows you to wirelessly recharge other devices by placing them on the back of the phone, according to Macotakara. This would allow you to recharge your AirPods via the wireless charging case with just the new iPhone.

There aren’t a ton of rumors about the upcoming Apple Watch, except that it may come in ceramic and titanium builds. We’ll also see the launch of iOS 13, as well as the latest versions of Apple’s other operating systems, including MacOS Catalina, tvOS, and WatchOS.

The Apple iPhone September event will start at 10 a.m. PT on September 10, and it will take place in the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, California. You can read our guide on what to expect for more information, and well as our primer on how to watch it.

The feature is finally rolling out to “randomly selected users” as of today, through a prerelease version of Apple Pay Later in the Wallet app. Those who have access to this prerelease version should have received an email to their Apple ID account, and they will need iOS 16.4 and iPadOS 16.4.

This is a prerelease version of Apple Pay Later, and the full service will be rolling out to eligible iPhone users older than 18 in the U.S. in the “coming months.”

Transferring an eSIM from an old iPhone to an iPhone 14.

While there's a lot to love about the iPhone 14, its lack of a SIM card tray in the U.S. variant was controversial, to say the least. Unfortunately, it looks like the iPhone 15 will be following its predecessor's lead and ditching the SIM card tray as well — this time for models across the globe, not just in the U.S.

According to a report by French publication iGeneration, the iPhone 15 and 15 Pro are likely to be released "without a physical SIM card in France." Although France is just one country, if iPhones are losing their SIM card slots in Europe as well as the U.S., then it seems likely that they'll be disappearing entirely for the upcoming generation.
