Apple is hosting a major product event on September 15, at which the company is expected to showcase a host of new devices, including a new Apple Watch and iPad, as well as a pair of over-the-ear headphones – a first for the tech giant.
It’s going to be quite a show, but it won’t be the last of the season for Apple (AAPL), a second event later this fall is expected to focus solely on the new iPhone range. Apple usually hosts its iPhone event in early September, but the slowdown in production associated with the coronavirus has forced the company to hold back its flagship devices from launch. “Data-reactid =” 18 “> It’s going to be quite a show. For Apple (AAPL), however, it won’t be the last time this season. A second event this fall is expected to focus exclusively on the new iPhone product line Apple usually hosts its iPhone event in early September, but due to the coronavirus, the related production slowdowns had to hold the company back from launching its flagship devices.
But that doesn’t mean you should skip the September 15th show. On the contrary.
Typically, Apple’s events take place at the massive Cupertino headquarters in the Steve Jobs Theater, where executives, stakeholders, celebrities, influencers, and journalists gather to watch CEO Tim Cook and Apple’s upper echelons showcase their latest merchandise.
But in the era of COVID-19, like apparently any other large gathering, the event becomes virtual. However, for the average person, this is a blessing as you can join in at home with no restrictions.

The September 15th event is expected to feature the debut of two new Apple Watches. The company currently offers two versions of its best-selling wearable, the Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple Watch Series 3. The $ 399 Series 5 is the top of the range and features Apple’s dual-core S5, international fall detection emergency call, an EKG -App and more. The Series 5 has two screen sizes of 40 mm and 44 mm
The Series 3 has many of the core features of the Series 5, including fitness tracking, heart rate tracking, water resistance, and cellular capabilities. However, it lacks the EKG app, the compass and the fall detection that your more expensive stable mate offers. It also has an older S3 chip, which means that certain new features like the upcoming hand washing detection cannot be handled in the soon to be released watchOS 7, the Apple Watch’s operating system.
The Series 3 is also smaller than the Series 5 and its screen takes up less face. But that’s also why the Series 3 starts at just $ 199.
According to BloombergApple will replace the Series 3 with a new low-cost Apple Watch designed for devices like Fitbit that are in the process of being acquired by Google. “Data-reactid =” 49 “> So what can we expect from the upcoming versions of Apple? According to Bloomberg, Apple will replace the Series 3 with a new low-cost Apple Watch that will take over devices like Fitbit that Google has just taken over become.
The Series 3 is already a good competitor to Fitbit’s offerings thanks to its design and capabilities, but it’s getting longer – it was released in 2017 – and needs to be updated.
According to 9to5MacThe watch also has a blood oxygen sensor, which records the amount of oxygen carried by your red blood cells. Such a feature could prove useful for those with chronic conditions who need to better understand their blood oxygen levels on a daily basis. “Data-reactid =” 51 “> Series 5 will be replaced by Series 6 According to 9to5Mac, the watch also has a blood oxygen sensor that can be used to record the amount of oxygen transferred by your red blood cells. Such a function could be useful for people with chronic Conditions in need of improvement prove helpful in understanding their blood oxygen levels on a daily basis.
Apple may also be able to squeeze additional juice out of the Series 6 for better sleep tracking, which is included in watchOS 7. Currently, the Apple Watch lasts a little longer than a day, telling you if you need to charge it before bed or if it needs to be charged when you wake up. However, with a larger battery, you may not be able to recharge as often when using sleep tracking.
Outside of the new Apple Watches, rumors suggest that Apple will announce a new, smaller HomePod at its September 15 event alongside the company’s own over-the-ear headphones.
The HomePod, which launched in 2018, was supposed to be a competitor to Amazon Echo or Google Home, but its $ 350 price point, which has since been cut to $ 299, was far higher than other smart speakers. This, along with the inability to use apps like Spotify, made the HomePod a tough sell-off despite its fantastic audio quality.
With a smaller version and the announcement that the HomePod team is working on supporting third-party apps, Apple could finally have its own smart speaker suitable for the mass market.
Call it the AirPods StudioAccording to Bloomberg, they have their own interchangeable ear and head pads so you can style them however you want. “data-reactid =” 81 “> When it comes to headphones, Apple should call them the AirPods Studio, and according to Bloomberg, they have their own interchangeable ear and head pads so you can style them to your liking.
Apple’s AirPods were a monster hit for the company and became a cultural icon. So, it only makes sense for the tech company to try to break into the over-the-ear headphone market.
And if you’re not done with Apple just yet, we expect the company to host a second event later this fall where the company will showcase its highly anticipated iPhone 12 with 5G cellular connectivity. But that’s a story for another time.
