We are a week away from Apple announcing new products, and the company confirms a special date for September 15th.
Now, thanks to some metadata extraction, we can probably know at least one of the new products that will debut later this month. Thanks to Guilherme Rambo from 9to5Mac, reveals the metadata for the September 15 event on the YouTube page quite a bit. This includes a reference to the Apple Watch “Series 6”. Apple released the YouTube placeholder for the event earlier today. The metadata reveals the keywords Apple is targeting.
The metadata also includes several other tags, including “iPhone”, “iOS” and “iPhone”. But these are just general terms, references that will lead to Apple in general. “Series 5” is also referenced in the metadata, suggesting the current iteration of Apple’s smartwatch. But the inclusion of “Series 6” is a direct hint of a brand new product, instead of what is already out there.

This is an interesting discovery because an earlier report suggested that we see the new smartwatch next week. In fact, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg said next week’s event does not include the iPhone 12 series at all. Instead, we should expect to see a new iPad model (at least) and Apple Watch Series 6. We may see more, but these two products seem to be the expectation right now.
As far as one can expect, it is said that the Apple Watch Series 6 looks like Series 5. However, the new smartwatch will have an improved ECG function, along with the detection of oxygen levels in the blood.
We do not have long to wait before all this becomes official. Are you looking forward to upgrading your Apple Watch this year?
