Now, another blaster is skeptical of the upcoming hardware release, according tomedia reports, and expects only details of the fall release of the iPhone 12 in Tuesday’s press release. There are many rumors that Apple will hold some form of launch in September, with at least one source saying the launch will take place in the week of September 7. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg wrote on Twitter that Apple’s latest announcement may not necessarily be about a product.
On Sunday, Gurman posted on Twitter that he advised people “not to get too excited about the rumors that Apple will launch a new product this week.” Instead, he thinks it’s more likely to be a statement about the upcoming iPhone 12 and Apple Watch Series 6 launch, which will almost certainly be “virtual.”
Earlier, the source, Jon Prosser, tweeted that Apple was preparing to issue a press release at 9 a.m. EST on September 8. Prosser did not discuss what he expected at Sunday’s news conference, but said time could change and that the media would be asked to brief him “one day in advance” before the release.
In addition, Apple is widely expected to release four new iPhones at the launch, including two iPhone 12s and two iPhone 12 Pros. In addition to the camera differences, the Pro series is also thought to reuse the iPad Pro’s lidar sensors for depth mapping, and 5G connectivity is considered a major addition to this generation.
The event could also be the launch of the Apple Watch Series 5, and this year there could be a plastic version of LCP to improve wireless performance and blood oxygen monitoring.
A new iPad may be coming soon, possibly in the form of the iPad Air 4, which will draw on the design of the iPad Pro and the second-generation Apple Pencil.
And the rumored AirTags will appear. AirTags, which consists of Bluetooth and a UWB tag, may work with Apple’s existing Find Me…” app to help users find their attached missing items.
