Apple has sent out invites for a virtual event from Apple Park on September 15

  • Apple was expected to launch new iPad and Watch models this week
  • Instead, Apple has announced a launch event for next week
  • There are four iPhone 12 models expected this year

Apple has sent out invites for an event on September 15 titled Time Flies, and the name hints at a Apple Watch and iPad Air launch, models that had been tipped in the recent past to launch this week. September is usually when the company is expected to launch its next iPhone series - though the iPhone 12 series this year is expected to be delayed.

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. An October launch is now expected for the new iPhone series, while recent leaks tipped the September launch of new iPad Air and Apple Watch models, in fact, they were expected to launch sometime today.

The 'Time Flies' Apple event on September 15 is scheduled to be livestreamed from 10am PDT (10:30pm IST). Bloomberg's Apple watcher Mark Gurman on Tuesday indicated next week's launch would see the new models from the iPad Air and Apple Watch series. To recall, models from these lineups were recently spotted certified on the EEC, usually a sign of an imminent launch. Both Apple Watch Series 6 models as the a new model that will replace the more affordable Apple Watch Series 3 lineup are expected.

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.
