In case our comprehensive rumor roundup for Apple’s big press event later today didn’t spell out everything you should expect on stage at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, a well-connected writer and blog publisher helps add one final piece to the lofty puzzle.

Apparently, “the consensus” among John Gruber’s sources is that Cupertino will stuff the highly anticipated September 9 ceremony full of new hardware gear, and skip the time-honored second batch of fall announcements typically taking place in October.

The logic behind the roadmap change remains up in the air, but for better or worse, “no matter how much or little sense that makes”, both the iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro shall likely go official in a matter of hours rather than weeks or months.

Remember, the protagonists of today’s event are basically confirmed as pretty major upgrades over the oft-hailed iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and a lower-profile but long overdue Apple TV 4 set-top box will also break cover.

Now, if new iPads are coming to San Francisco earlier than usual, it’s possible a rehashed Air will further crowd the September 9 agenda. And then you have a slew of Apple Watch accessories, not to mention incremental software updates for both watchOS and iOS.

All in all, it sounds like too much information for just one day, and leaves rumored revamped Macs, as well as OS X El Capitan, in a delicate position where they’re probably looking at humble, press release-centric introductions next month.
