Apple could announce the date for its iPhone 12 event as soon as this week, as suggested by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman on Twitter. At the event, Apple is expected to announce new Apple Watch hardware and offer details on the release schedule for iOS 14 and watchOS 7 alongside the new iPhone.
Gurman’s tweet follows a post from Jon Prosser, who claims that that Apple has a press release scheduled for Tuesday, September 8, at 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT. Today’s tweet from Prosser does not make any specific claims about what Apple could announce in this press release, but he has previously asserted that a new iPad and the Apple Watch would be released the week of September 7.
Gurman’s tweet refutes the notion that Apple hardware is coming this week and instead suggests that an announcement of the iPhone 12 and Apple Watch online event is more likely.
