Apple's annual September event, where it introduces its new iPhone lineup, is eagerly anticipated each year by its one billion subscribers.
This time, the exact date for Apple's expected announcement of the new iPhone 15 lineup has been reported by 9to5Mac, citing information obtained from confidential sources.
According to the website, "mobile carriers have been asking employees not to take days off on September 13," hinting at a significant smartphone announcement.
Though not explicitly mentioned, Forbes senior contributor David Phelan separately reinforced the idea that this is likely related to the iPhone launch, stating that "there are no expectations of new models from any other brands at this time of year."
Last year's Apple event took place on September 7, so it is reasonable to consider that this year's event will also happen on September 13, per the report.
However, according to Phelan, "Apple usually likes to announce on a Tuesday," so September 12 hasn't been ruled out either.
Looking at Apple's product launch timeline in recent years, pre-orders for the new iPhones could begin on September 15, with the official release a week later.
Still, potential delays, as experienced with the iPhone 14 in 2022 due to supply issues, may affect these timelines.
As the reported release date comes closer, new leaks are spreading the internet regarding the specs of the new iPhone.
According to a recent report, the iPhone 15 could feature thinner bezels and a switch from the Lightning port to a USB-C port due to regulations imposed by the European Union.
