Next Tuesday, Apple is organizing a Special Event with “Time flies” as its theme. During this event – which is good for a lot of spectacles every year – Apple makes product revelations. This year our Apple Event expectations include an Apple Watch 6, iPad Air 4 and… maybe an iPhone 12, right?
Apple Watch Series 6
The Apple Watch Series 6 seems a certainty for Tuesday. With “Time Flies” on the invitation, Apple already gave away that we can expect a new clock. In addition, a tag with “Series 6” was found in the YouTube stream of the Apple event. Can’t miss, right?
We don’t think the Watch will change drastically. The appearance is probably the same as with the Series 5. The Watch does seem to get an Sp02 sensor, which measures the oxygen level in the blood. You can read more expected innovations of the Watch in our dossier about the Apple Watch Series 6.
iPad Air 4
All Apple insiders agree: a new iPad will arrive on Tuesday. It is still uncertain which iPad model it is, but the iPad Air seems to be the biggest contender. It is probably a spectacular improvement, with the Air more like the more advanced Pro model.
For example, the iPad Air 4 is expected to have a borderless design, without a home button. But you can still unlock it with Touch ID. The fingerprint scanner is said to be incorporated in the on / off button on the top of the iPad Air. Furthermore, the screen has grown a bit (10.8-inch) and the iPad has usb-c instead of Lightning.
It is almost certain that Apple will come with over-ear headphones in 2020. The only question is when and that could be next week. The headphones are said to be called the AirPods Studio. There may be two versions of this: a high-end model with a leather cover and a fitness version with lighter materials.
Release date iOS 14 and macOS Big Sur
In June, Apple announced its new operating systems: iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, watchOS 7 and tvOS 14. Traditionally during the September event we will hear when we can download the software, but there is a chance that we will not be able to download the software until October. hear more. So no certainty.
Still an iPhone 12?
The chance seems nil, because all Apple insiders are unanimous: the announcement of the iPhone 12 will only come in October. The insiders are reliable, but they have all been wrong at one point or another. So why not about this? We’re just adding it to our Apple Event expectations. And keep hoping.
