Apple will be releasing the new iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7 (maybe a new iPad) next Tuesday, September 14, 2021. They updated their events page one week in advance. There are already rumors of the iPhone 14, which seems crazy to me. After more than six years, the mini model maybe my iPhone 6's replacement. I started recording my daily seconds in 2012 or 2013 with an iPod Touch, then with my iPhone 6 ever since I got it in January 2015.
These new devices can record video at a professional quality, and take pictures in low light (to which my phone adds plenty of noise) which I could use to record podcast interviews on video. It'd be great to see the notch and the camera bump go. But that may have to wait a few more years.
