Apple nerds, mark your calendars. Apple’s annual fall iPhone event will be September 15 at Noon Central time. That means in a week, we’ll likely be getting the skinny on the iPhone 12 lineup, the Apple Watch Series 6, the iOS 14 release date, iPads, and maybe even some new headphones and the long-rumored AirTags.
We’re also expecting to see an updated iPad Air, and potentially, a smaller and cheaper HomePod and over-ear headphones. There are even rumors Apple’s AirTags, which help you track lost stuff like your keys, could be announced. There’s also an outside chance that this is when Apple might announce its firstApple Silicon computers and put us all out of our speculative misery.
Speaking of rumors, there have been plenty with regard to the iPhone 12 lineup. There will likely be four models that take design cues from the iPhone 5, namely in the form of squared-off edges. We’re expecting two cheaper models measuring 5.4 and 6.1 inches, and two “Pro” models at 6.1 and 6.7 inches. We’ve also heard some interesting rumors regarding a possible 120Hz screen and some fancy camera modes. All four are also expected to be Apple’s first 5G compatible phones. That said, while the announcement is coming next week, it’s likely there’ll be a slight delay when it comes to shipping due to supply chain issues caused by the pandemic.
As for the Apple Watch Series 6, most rumors thus far have indicated that we should expect to see blood oxygen monitoring in some capacity. More interesting is a recent rumor that Apple will be replacing the Series 3 with a more updated budget model.
We won’t find out until next week, and as usual, Apple’s announcementis cryptic and reveals zero details other than time and date.
