Apple was set to launch its first 5G iPhone as the company will host its September 15 event.
Apple on Tuesday (US time) invited the public to its September 15 online event which expected to feature new Apple products.
This, as Apple revealed only that the said presentation will be streamed from its headquarters in Silicon Valley starting at 10 a.m. PDT (1:00 a.m. of September 16 in the Philippines).
Starring a video-snippet version of the Apple logo in blue that was unraveled into the event date, the copies of the e-mailed invitation rapidly spread on social media.
The said invitation was also posted at Apple’s website wherein the event would be streamed virtually.
Apple had routinely held events annually in order for the company to reveal new iPhones, and expectations were that the spotlight would shine on a 5G model of its iPhone, with other new handsets possible as well.
In a note to investors, Daniel Ives – an analyst at Wedbush – said that a check of the supply chain of Apple in Asian strengthened his confidence in Apple’s iPhone 12 “supercycle” kicked off by the release of some new models in October.
Ives also saw the China market as a “key ingredient” in Apple’s “recipe for success”, expecting it to account for nearly 20% of iPhone upgrades in the coming year.
You can watch Apple’s September 15 event on Apple’s website or through Apple’s YouTube channel.
Meanwhile, a lot of people were curious after inspecting the code of Apple’s scheduled YouTube stream – and found out that the Apple Watch “Series 6” was included as one of the keywords of the said video.
It was last June when Apple unveiled its software updates on its products – iOS 14 for iPhone, iPadOS 14 for iPad, watchOS 7 for Apple Watch, tvOS 14 for Apple TV, and macOS Big Sur (macOS 11) for Mac.
