If recent reports are to be believed, then Apple Watch Series 6 will be one of the main “stars” in Apple’s upcoming event. Compared to the previous generation, this smart watch possesses a design that has not changed much, and is focused on improving features by Apple to provide a better user experience.
Specifically, the Apple Watch Series 6 is rumored to support a host of new features such as measuring oxygen levels in the blood, monitoring users’ sleep and mental health. Besides, although there are some rumors that Apple will change OLED screen technology to microLED on its Apple Watch line to save power, but this may not happen in 2020. Such a transition will come, one source asserts, but it will be in 2023.
Interestingly, some recent rumors suggest that Apple will launch an additional “low-cost” Apple Watch version alongside the Series 6 to replace the current Apple Watch Series 3. Information about this affordable smartwatch is quite scarce at the moment, but some rumors suggest it may have a plastic frame as well as a few features like a Always On Display or ECG screen. to reduce the cost.
New iPad or iPad Air
Along with the Apple Watch Series 6, Apple is also rumored to launch a new iPad at the upcoming event, and this could be either the 8th generation iPad 10.8 or the iPad Air 4.
According to rumors, some of the changes of the upcoming iPad are that it inherits the design language from the iPad Pro line such as the flat bezel, the screen is thin at the edges and uses Liquid Retina technology. .
One major change on the upcoming iPad will be the removal of the Home button on the front, but it remains to be seen how it will be replaced. While Apple could use a similar TrueDepth camera system on the iPad Pro to activate Face ID, some rumors suggest that Touch ID will still be maintained and embedded in the power button.
And yet, some rumors have spread about Apple replacing Lightning port with USB-C on the new generation iPad models. This change opens up more advanced connectivity possibilities for the iPad, as well as direct compatibility with hardware that works with the iPad Pro.
With the removal of the Lightning port, this iPad will also support the 2nd generation Apple Pencil instead of the 1st generation as before and use wireless charging.
Design changes to the iPad Pro style could affect the selling price, with rumors suggesting that the starting price of the new generation iPad could be around $ 649. Meanwhile, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggests that the iPad will still be reasonably priced as part of Apple’s cost-reduction strategy.
This is Tile’s long-rumored rival, “AirTags” is Apple’s location tracking accessory. Designed to attach to items such as keys, purses or a bag, AirTags will help users find lost items using the existing Find My app.
There have been some rumors that the Find My app will offer some augmented reality view for accessory tracking, showing its location in real world view on iPhone or iPad.
Unlike other navigation-style trackers, AirTags is expected to take advantage of both Bluetooth and Ultra Wideband technology to help determine its location. If lost in a public place, other iPhones pass through will receive an encrypted “ping” from the accessory and can be reported back to the owner via iCloud.
In theory, this would allow an item with an AirTags attached to be found anywhere in the world, even though it lacks GPS technology.
According to previous leaks, Apple AirTags will be round but no information about its size or other design details. For its intended use, it will probably be a very small accessory, the equivalent of a key.
So far, there is no information to suggest the selling price. However, with Tile trackers selling for around $ 25 – $ 35, chances are, Apple’s version may be a bit more expensive.
iPhone 12 series (probably)
Traditionally every year, Apple will launch a new series of iPhones at the September event. However, a recent report states that due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic around the world, Apple may leave jobs. launch iPhone series to October.
However, there are still some users who are expecting Apple to launch the iPhone 12 series at the September 15 event. Most of the previous rumors have suggested that Apple will launch up to four new iPhone models by the end of this year.

All four new iPhones are equipped with high-end OLED displays, using a powerful 5nm Apple A14 chipset, supporting 5G connectivity and a flat bezel like the iPad Pro series.
The differences for these phones only come from the camera cluster after the affordable duo of the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 has only two lenses on the back like the current iPhone 11. Meanwhile, the iPhone 12 Pro line is rumored to have a triple camera system and the 6.7-inch model also comes with a LiDAR scanner.
Yet, the camera lens can be changed from 6 elements on previous iPhone models to 7 plastic elements. This can improve the optical properties of the camera. Apple will also further improve in the field of computer photography.
