September is typically a very busy month for Apple, but this year might be a bit different. Despite everything that’s happened this year, there is a good chance that we might see some exciting new products from Apple very soon.
It’s no secret that September is usually a very busy month as far as Apple is concerned. In fact, it’s usually the month Apple shows off its brand new iPhone to the world, along with some other products too.
2020 has been a year like no other, and a theme across the entire year is that Apple is doing things differently, no big press events, no hands-on at Apple Park, and maybe even no September iPhone. Across most of Apple’s lineup, iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, MacBook, there are likely some big changes coming over the next few months. If you’re in the market for anything new from Apple, it might be prudent to wait a little while longer to see what happens. And even if you aren’t interested in the latest and greatest from Apple, new devices usually means the price of the current ones will drop, saving you some money.
So what exactly is Apple planning to release in September? We can’t know for certain, but several prominent leakers have suggested that Apple has a couple of things in the pipeline. The bigger change this year, however, may be what Apple doesn’t release this month, namely, iPhone 12.
It is almost a certainty that Apple will not release an iPhone this month. Whilst September is usually the go-to month for Apple’s iPhone keynote and subsequent release, it is no secret that the iPhone 12 has been met with delays around prototyping this year. As such, all the latest rumors suggest that the iPhone 12 will be delayed until next month.
iPhone 12 (2020): Rumors, release date, price, features, and more.
The latest report from Jon Prosser suggests we can expect an iPhone 12 event during the week of October 12.
So what is coming?
We do however have information to suggest that Apple will be dropping new products in September, perhaps in just a few day’s time.
Again, Jon Prosser notes that Apple will likely release a new Apple Watch and a new iPad as soon as next week, commencing September 7. In fact, Prosser went so far as to give us the exact date and time, September 8 between 9 am – 12 pm EST. He didn’t say what was coming then, but was likely referring to either the Apple Watch Series 6 or a new iPad.
New iPad you say?
New filings lodged in the Eurasian Economic Commission database show that Apple has seven new models of iPad lined up for imminent release. The new model numbers for the iPads are A2270, A2072, A2316, A2324, A2325, A2428, and A2429. The numerous numbers indicate different configurations of storage and cellular capabilities, as with previous models.
Jon Prosser also went so far as to say that he expects Apple to release a new iPad Air (fourth generation) and a new iPad (2020). We don’t know much about the rumored new iPad, but a recent leaked manual purportedly reveals that the iPad Air 4 will get a total design overhaul to look something like Apple’s latest iPad Pro models. That includes thinner, sleeker bezels, and end to the Home Button, and more. Not only do the leaked images reveal a new design, the manual also reportedly refers to Touch ID embedded in the device’s power button, a Smart Connector on the back for Magic Keyboard, and USB-C instead of a Lightning connector.
As mentioned, we know less about the ‘iPad’ that might be coming, but if Apple does release a new cheaper…
