September has started, and that means Apple can announce the date of its flagship iPhone event every day. While this year’s event will be virtual due to the coronavirus pandemic, we now have an idea of what the company can announce this year: four iPhones, two watches, a new iPad Air and a smaller HomePod.
A report from Bloomberg suggests that the company is already preparing for a blockbuster quarter by forecasting the delivery of 80 million new iPhones this year ̵
In particular, the report suggests that Apple will release two basic iPhones with a 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch screen size, and two pro models with a 6.1-inch or 6.7-inch screens. All phones have iPad Pro-like square edges, the latest Apple chipset and OLED screens.

The Cupertino-based company also aims to release two new watches. One was supposed to be the Apple Watch 6, and the other would be a cheaper version that replaces the Apple Watch 3 and competes with other training bands such as FitBit.
As we saw in the leaked forms earlier this week, the iPad Air will also get a design update in an iPad Pro-esque chassis. Bloomberg’s report also notes that Apple may also unveil a smaller HomePod.
All in all, it looks like the technology giant is prepared to launch many budget options in each segment. Given that the new $ 399 iPhone SE has done significantly well in the market, Apple will hope that these new gadgets will see much more traction and will be able to compete with their affordable rivals.
