Products to Expect at the ‘Time Flies’ Event

According to what sources have told Bloomberg, the Cupertino tech giant will not be launching the “iPhone 12 at this event but instead will concentrate on the Apple Watch Series 6 and the fourth-generation iPad Air.

For the Apple Watch, the report claims it will include a faster processor and a blood oxygen meter. It will ship in the same 40mm and 44mm sizes as current-generation models, but Apple will also bring out a new low-end version that will be at a lower price point.

Other things that could appear during the event for the Apple Watch include a rumored “Kid Mode” for pairing a second watch to an iPhone, mental health tracking functions, and a new app to walk users through home workouts.

For the iPad Air, Bloomberg claims it will lose the Home button for an all-screen look, similar to the iPad Pro. However, it will use a slower processor and still lack some of the features found in the high-end models, such as the ProMotion display.

Earlier rumors pointed to the device being equipped with a 10.8-inch display, thin iPad Pro-style bezels, a possible Touch ID sensor in the power button instead of Face ID, and switching out the Lightning port for USB-C.

The idea of an October launch for the iPhone has been raised many times in several leaks and rumor reports for the past few months. There has also been the suggestion of a staggered release, with two models arriving in the first stage followed by the other two in a second.

The Cupertino tech giant itself has even alluded to unexpected release timings, confirming in a July earnings conference call that the launch would take place “a few weeks later” than usual.
