Mark Gurman from Bloomberg claims that Apple will hold two events this Fall to announce new products. He says that the ‘California streaming’ event on September 14, will announce the new iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7, and AirPods 3. The next-generation MacBook Pro and iPad models will be announced later.
Previously, it was reported that unlike 2020, Apple will hold a series of events in September to unveil new products. Last year, the company launched iPad Air in September, iPhone 12 and Apple Watch Series 6 in October, and M1 Mac models in November: 13-inc M1 MacBook Air, 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, iPhone 12’s launch was pushed ahead by a month but this year, it will follow the usual launch time.
This year, Apple could launch M1X MacBook Pro and iPad models in October – November time frame
Over the weekend, Gurman published his exclusive newsletter in which he stated that Apple will hold a second event after ‘several weeks’ of the September 14 event. Following up on that info, a Twitter user asked if when MacBook Pro will be launched in September or October. Without mentioning a specific month, @Mark Gurman replied that the MacBook and iPad will likely be launched in the second event and the upcoming event will introduce the next-generation iPhone and smartwatch.
There will be two events, and I’d expect the latter to be Mac + iPad. iPhone/Watch Tuesday. https://t.co/xfAjhUkigC

The launch of 14-inch and 16-inch M1X MacBook Pro models has been pushed ahead yet again. Rumor mills expected the laptops to be announced at WWDC 21 event, but reports claimed that production challenges related to the new mini-LED display of the MacBook Pro models caused the delay.
The new Pro models are expected to feature a new flat edge-to-edge design language without a Touch Bar, mini-LED technology Face ID, MagSafe support for faster charging, SD card slot, HDMI port, and more. 9th generation iPad and 6th generation iPad mini models will reportedly launch later this year with new laptops.
