Noted Apple leaker, Jon Prosser said this week on Twitter that he is expecting Apple to hold a media event tomorrow on Tuesday 8th of September to announce the new Apple Watch Series 6 and the new entry level iPad. He did say that the event date is “not locked in.”
Apple press release is currently scheduled for Tuesday (September 8) at 9:00am EST — though, I should note that it’s not locked in until the press has been briefed, day of.
I’ll tweet early that morning to update you if it changes.

This means that we might have to wait until October for the iPhone 12, according to Prosser on the week commencing 12th October, with preorders that week and shipping the week after. Prosser is also expecting the iPhone 12 Pro preorder and shipping to be delayed until November.
The Apple Watch and iPad event could simply be press releases and then Apple saving a virtual event with presenters for the iPhone 12, but we’ll have to wait and see as to what Apple decides to do.
