Apple has sent out invites for a virtual event on September 15, and the company is expected to launch its iPhone 12 series – though the release date is anticipated to be delayed compared to previous years. At the launch event from Apple Park, the company is also expected to unveil the Apple Watch Series 6 and a new iPad Air model, a launch that was initially tipped for this week.
To recall, Apple had at its last earnings results announced there would be a few weeks delay to the release of its new iPhone models this year, thanks to supply chain issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Apple typically launches new iPhone models in September, and releases them later the same month. The Apple event on September 15 is scheduled to be livestreamed from 10am PDT (10:30pm IST).
As with all iPhone launches, the iPhone 12 launch has had its fair share of rumours leading up to it, with four expected iPhone models, including the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max, with only the last expected to support faster millimetre-wave 5G connectivity, and the other iPhone 12 models expected to offer sub-6GHz 5G connectivity.
Recent leaks tipped a launch of new iPad Air and Apple Watch models, in fact, they were expected to launch sometime today. New models from the iPad Air and Apple Watch series were spotted certified on the EEC recently, usually a sign of an imminent launch.
