Apple Will Host a Virtual Event for iPhone 13 Launch Due to Ongoing Health Crises
Apple is expected to host an iPhone event later this year, potentially in September. According to the latest report, the iPhone 13 event will be a virtual one instead of a physical launch. The ongoing health crises have left individuals and companies in a state of no return for now and despite efforts being made, it seems the trend would continue this year as well.
Apple Will Host Its iPhone 13 Launch Event Virtually, No Physical Attendees
Apple hosted a virtual event last year as well when it launched the current latest iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models. This time around, Apple is going to follow the same trend with a virtual launch of the iPhone 13 series. Apple must have taken the decision of a virtual launch due to the ongoing health crises and the number of cases emerging in the United States. The news comes from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman who shared in his latest Power On newsletter that the iPhone 13 launch will be a virtual event.
Other than this, Apple also delayed calling its employees to work from offices. Initially, Apple asked its employees to work from offices starting September for three days a week. However, the plan was delayed to at least October. Given the number of cases showing up, it makes sense for Apple to host a virtual launch event for the iPhone 13 series. This way the company's employees and the attendees would be safe from catching a virus.
Last year, the iPhone 12 launch was delayed due to the pandemic. This time around, Apple has prepared beforehand for any complications in the supply chain. Apple's September launch is the usual timeframe for the company to launch its next-in-line smartphone. Apple is expected to announce the new redesigned MacBook Pro models as well along with a new iPad mini sixth-gen with a boxier design and bigger display.
