1. Apple Event: September 15, but no iPhone 12 yet
Apple announced its September schedule yesterday, inviting the press and the public to tune in on September 15, 10am PDT with a program called ‘Time Flies’. Time, you know, like a clock?
And this is the question. In the hours following the announcement, there was some confusion about whether this was an iPhone 12 event, or if it was too early for a new iPhone that Apple suggested.
Then, perhaps the most reliable Apple insider put it to bed:
- Mark Gurman of Bloomberg is confident that we will not see the new iPhone. Instead, it will be Apple Watch and iPad announcements.
- mention. Quote “The announcement of the event on Apple’s website does not have its own specific tag line that prompts it to be announced. But the media invitation states that” Time Flies “, the announcement indicates that Apple is related to the Watch, Not iPhones. Bloomberg News reported that the new iPhones won’t launch until October.
- “Will come later to redesign new iPhones, cases, updated cameras, and 5G capabilities. Apple plans to announce the first Mac to be replaced by Intel Corp. before the end of the year. IPhone and iPad software ‘S next updates are scheduled to be released this month, with Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac software updates coming in the fall. “
- A lot of people are still not sure, given that Apple will generally not hold an event for its smaller product range in the Watch and iPad.
- But with virtual only events, the sky is the limit.
- And for lack of further information, I am with Gurman every time.
