Apple's announcement of the new iPhone is rumored to be delayed this year. The company usually launches its iPhones in September, but this year, the September event that it has revealed is called 'Time Flies', which suggests that it could be for the launch of the new Apple Watch.
The event is scheduled for 15 September, which is later than the usual time of September that Apple chooses for its products' launch in fall. The delay is apparently due to the Covid pandemic. Apple had also confirmed that it won't be shipping its new phones in September.
Apple event on Sept 15th! I would very much expect it to be a new Apple Watch ("Time Flies") and possibly a new iPad. From what I'm told and everything Apple has said on earnings calls, the new iPhone is coming a few weeks later. pic.twitter.com/EuKfN8BqHA— nilay patel (@reckless) September 8, 2020
There are, as usual, no details given about the event in terms of the products that will be announced. However, it is rumored that the company has a full lineup of hardware for this year, including four new iPhones, the Apple Watch Series 6, an updated iPad Air, a smaller HomePod, and perhaps even a pair of over-ear headphones. The 'Time Flies' event seems to be focusing on the Apple Watch, though.
The Apple Watch Series 6 is rumored to feature blood oxygen level monitoring and improved sleep tracking and could have a faster processor.
It is also observed that the company listed ''Series 6'' and ''iPad Air'' as keywords for the event on Apple's page on YouTube, so it feels like the event may have an iPad announcement too.
The four new iPhone models that Apple is expected to announce this year are the two cheaper iPhone 12 models with 5.4 inches and 6.1 inches, and two iPhone 12 Pro models with 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens.
Apple also revealed that it will launch the ARM Apple-powered silicon Macs later this year, but hasn't shared any details about it.
