Update #2: It's been confirmed that audio description will be available for the event when it airs (rather than a described version being made available later, which is what Apple typically does with live stream events).
The event starts at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. UTC.
How to watch
- Watch the official live stream on Apple’s YouTube channel.
- Watch on any device at Apple’s Events website.
- Watch on Apple’s TV app on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple TV, and other supported devices.
Update #1: Bloomberg now reports that the September event will focus on Apple Watch and iPad announcements, and not the iPhone 12 as initially widely reported.
According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who reported ahead of time that Apple would reveal its September event today, Apple will save the iPhone 12 announcement for sometime in October. Instead, the September 15 event will include the new Apple Watch hardware and new iPad hardware.
Apple has today revealed that it will be holding an event on September 15.
Apple has provided no further details at this time, but it is anticipated that the event will see the launch of the iPhone 12 and other products, possibly including Apple Watch Series 6; new or updated iPad models; Apple AirTags; a new or upgraded Apple TV; AirPod branded over-the-ear headphones; and a smaller HomePod.
Rumors are that the iPhone 12 will be available in four models across two tiers. According to AppleInsider, “the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max are thought to have 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch OLED displays, while the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max are anticipated to have 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch screens respectively.”
Speculation regarding the iPad suggests that we should expect either a refresh of the 10.2-inch seventh-generation iPad or a new 10.8-inch iPad Air with slimmer bezels and Touch ID embedded in the power button.
The Apple Watch Series 6 is expected to be a minor refresh, with the addition of blood oxygenation monitoring possibly being the only significant change.
Arguably more interesting are rumors that we might see a new entry-level Apple Watch to replace the Series 3, with there being speculation that it will be available with a plastic casing option.
Apple has previously indicated that it will be releasing its first Mac powered by Apple Silicon some time this year, but it is likely that this will be announced later this fall.
News of this event would also seem to suggest that the releases of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 are imminent, possibly within the next couple weeks.
This should make for a busy September for Apple news and releases. Post a comment below to let us know what you are looking forward to.
