Apple has recently posted the date for its next event, and we keep on getting rumors that tell us what to expect. We expect Apple to launch the new Apple Watch Series 6, along with a new Apple Watch SE, and a couple of new iPads. However, Jon Prosser has recently posted on Twitter that the new iPhone 12 will not be ready in time for the event that will happen next week.
My sources are saying that it likely won’t be announced at the event on the 15th.— Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) September 11, 2020
I think it’s reasonable to think that @markgurman has this one right, too.
We finally have an official date for the next Apple event. It will take place on September 15, and we have been getting tons of rumors concerning the devices that may or may not launch. We can start by mentioning that we could very well see the presentation of new AirTags, a new iPad and iPad Air, the arrival of the Apple Watch, and according to recent rumors, a new Apple Watch SE in two sizes. However, the iPhone 12 would be the left for another event.
According to recent tweets from Jon Prosser, the iPhone 12 won’t be launched next Tuesday. The reason for this is because the new iPhone has just started mass production this week, and iOS 14.1 won’t be complete until October 9. Now, Apple also has to install the new iOS version to every iPhone 12 unit, so it would be impossible for Cupertino to ship the phones until mid-late October. He then mentions that his sources are also saying that the new iPhone lineup may not be announced during the next event.
For the “Time Flies” event on the 15th, what I’ve been told is coming for sure is:— Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) September 11, 2020
Apple Watch SE
Apple Watch Series 6
(or Apple Watch & Watch Pro)
iPad Air 4
I’m sure there might be more, but that’s the main focus of the event.
No iPhone or AirPods Studio
He later talked about the products that would be launched in the “Time Flies” event, where he mentions the Apple Watch SE and the new Apple Watch Series 6, or the Apple Watch and the Apple Watch Pro. The Apple Watch SE is supposed to arrive without ECG, but it will arrive with a design similar to the one on the Series 4, with a 40mm and a 44mm version. We have also seen rumors that mention an iPad refresh and a new iPad Air 4, but we will have to wait for further information on these matters.
