Apple will hold a new product launch event with the theme “Time Flies” today. According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman tweet, he expects new product launches, especially new models of Apple Watch. Gurman has stated that his general expectation for Tuesday’s event is to focus on the new Apple Watch Series 6 and iPad Air. As for the Apple Watch, Gurman has lowered his expectations for the Apple Watch Series 6. He said that apart from blood oxygen monitoring and a faster processor, there are no major updates.
In addition, Gurman personally believes that Apple will also launch a new low-end Apple Watch model. This model will be called “Apple Watch SE”. Recall that @evleaks had the same prediction before breaking the news.
According to Gurman, Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE is expected to have the same 40mm and 44mm sizes. The SE model is the same as the current Series 5 in design and internal specifications. @evleaks predicts that these two watches will also have LTE and Wi-Fi versions.
As for the expected new iPad Air model, Gurman said that it uses a full-screen design similar to the iPad Pro. However, it will lack a ProMotion display and will not use Apple’s latest A-series processors.
@evleaks estimates that the fourth-generation iPad Air will use the A14 processor and USB-C interface. In addition, he also predicts that Apple will launch the eighth-generation iPad, using the A12X chip and Lightning interface.
Finally, Gurman reiterated that he expects the Apple One service bundle to be released. In addition, there will be a new Apple fitness service. However, the new Apple TV model is still delayed. Gurman did not mention the specific release date of Apple’s rumored AirTags accessory.
