Apple just announced its next special event for September 15, and invited people to tune in practically via Apple’s website. While the assumption was that the event would include the iPhone 12 announcement, Bloomberg now reports that the September event will instead focus on the Apple Watch and iPad announcements.
According to Bloombergs Mark Gurman, who accurately reported that Apple would unveil its September event today, will save the iPhone 12 announcement sometime in October. Instead, the September 15 event will include the new Apple Watch hardware and the new iPad hardware.

The report also adds that iOS 14 is still coming this month, along with watchOS 7 for Apple Watch users.
The new iPhones, which will come later, will have redesigned cases, updated cameras and 5G features. Apple also plans to announce the first Mac to run its own processors, replacing Intel Corp., before the end of the year. The next updates to the iPhone and iPad software will be released this month, with Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac software updates coming this fall.
According to reports, Apple is planning an updated version of the iPad Air with an edge-to-edge screen and design similar to the latest iPad Pro. For the Apple Watch, Apple is reportedly preparing an advanced Apple Watch Series 6 with features such as blood oxygen detection, as well as a replacement at the lower end of the aging Apple Watch Series 3.
Finally, today’s report from Bloomberg also notes that Apple has other hardware in store this year, including a smaller HomePod and pairs of Apple-branded over-earphones, both of which could be released “as early as this year.”
