Leaker Jon Prosser claims that Apple has a press release scheduled to go live on Tuesday at 09:00 PT. The details of the press release are unclear, but according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, it is definitely not for a new product launch. Instead, he speculates that Apple may announce the iPhone 1
There were rumors that Apple launched the new iPad Air and Apple Watch Series 6 via a press release this month, although reliable leaker @ L0vetodream shot the rumors and said that the watch was not launched this month. Prosser himself had previously claimed that Apple would launch the iPad Air and Apple Watch via a press release, but for the press release on September 8, he does not say what he expects.
Apple’s press release is currently scheduled for Tuesday, September 8 at 9:00 AM EST – though, I should note that it is not locked until the press has been briefed, date.
I will tweet early that morning to update you if that changes.

I will not be too excited about rumors of new Apple products appearing this week. More likely I think: an announcement about the upcoming (of course virtual) iPhone / Apple Watch event in September.

Gurman’s predictions may be right here. Apple was able to hold an iPhone 12 launch event in the third week of September, and then launch the non-Pro iPhone 12 models in the first week of October, followed by the launch of the iPhone 12 Pro variants later this month. Analysts have claimed that the iPhone 12 series will see a delayed launch, with Apple itself saying that the devices will launch a few weeks later than usual.
There is also a possibility that Apple will announce the public release date for iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 via the press release. After all, there are rumors that iOS 14 will see its public release this month itself, and it is unlikely that Apple will release the operating system without any advance notice whatsoever.
