The "iPhone 13" will be announced on September 14 with a global launch on September 24, according to prolific leaker Jon Prosser.

The annual September iPhone event is upon us, and speculation surrounding the announcement, pre-orders, and launch of "iPhone 13" are running wild. After a report suggested September 17 as a launch date, prolific leaker Jon Prosser offered some clarification.

In an article from Front Page Tech, Prosser explained the September 17 date and added more details provided from his sources. He says the dates from the e-commerce website were correct and aligned with expected dates.

According to Prosser's sources, press invites for the September event go out on September 7 for an event held on September 14. The September 17 date is for pre-orders, not the launch, with September 24 being the true launch date.

Prosser also confirmed that all "iPhone 13" models would be available for pre-order at the same time. Previously, the iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max were not available for a full month after being announced.
