Apple event 2020 livestream: How to watch today’s rumored iPad, Apple Watch launch – CNET

This story is part of Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

It’s official: The Apple Store is down, so it must be a launch day. The company is holding a virtual launch event today and while we don’t expect the iPhone 12 to be announced, it’s expected to unveil the Apple Watch Series 6 and new additions to the iPad family of tablets. The event is scheduled for Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. PT (1 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. UK), and Apple will stream the event on its website.

The updated Apple Watch, which will be the successor to the Apple Watch Series 5 and will run WatchOS 7, is rumored to have a longer battery life, updates to its sleep-tracking feature and metrics to measure blood oxygen levels. The iPad Air is likely due for a refresh as well. Improvements could include a larger display, a faster processor (perhaps the A13 Bionic chipset) and maybe a USB Type-C connection instead of Apple’s Lightning port.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is coming soon


As for the iPhone 12, the company still has not released any information about its next phone launch, though we wouldn’t be surprised if during the Sept. 15 event Apple did not show a quick tease. While Apple confirmed that the new iPhone will be available “a few weeks later” than its usual mid-September launch, our best educated guess for the event will be either Oct. 13 or 14.
