Apple 'Time Flies' event: When, where to watch the show
In a few hours from now, Apple will be holding an event to showcase its latest product line-up. The show, titled Time Flies, is different from all September events the company has hosted in recent years, as it will not see the iPhones launch this time around. Here's all you need to know about the event, along with the live-stream details.
If not iPhones, what Apple is planning to launch?
The iPhone 12 series is coming this year, but the devices will be debuting next month due to delays in production. At today's event, instead of the flagships, the Cupertino giant is expected to reveal the new Apple Watch Series 6, and its more affordable SE variant, a new iPad Air, possibly a more affordable HomePod and subscription bundles for various services.
When the event will begin?
Like the WWDC 2020, the Time Flies event will also be held virtually. The keynote, presumably headed by CEO Tim Cook, will begin at 10 am PDT, which is 10:30 pm here in India, and could be live-streamed either from the dedicated Apple events website or the company's channel on YouTube.
What we know about the Watches
As for the products, the Apple Watch Series 6 is likely to be one of the key highlights. It is rumored to pack a faster processor with a blood oxygen meter as well as pulse tracking and heart rate monitoring. Meanwhile, Watch SE is said to offer a similar look and feel but with a few higher-end functions, like ECG and always-on display, missing.
iPad Air 2020 and Apple One
Separately, the iPad Air will reportedly come with thinner bezels, much like the iPad Pro, but will miss out on the high-end features the Pro models have on offer. Apple One, on the other hand, could be the long-rumored subscription bundle that might offer various Apple services (Apple Music, TV+, et al) as a discounted all-in-one package.
Not much on HomePod
As for the HomePod, there is not much information to go by. Also, it must be noted that there is a chance that Apple could throw in a little something extra to make up for the delay of the much-awaited iPhone 12.
