Apple has announced its next ‘Apple Event’ will take place on September 15th (16th in Australia), where it is expected to see the unveiling of several new products. However, the only hint Apple is giving for now is the Tagline “Time Flies”.
Typical Apple announces new iPhone and Apple Watch models within the first week or two of September. However, Apple has already confirmed new iPhone models will be delayed by several weeks. Although that doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t be announced in September.
During Apple’s last event, several new software releases were unveiled, including iOS 14, watchOS 7, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, and more. Therefore, it is likely this event will see several new products (hardware) and potentially services unveiled. These could include: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, Apple Watch Series 6, new iPads, and more. But there is plenty Apple can surprise us with.
Usually, the events are held in Cupertino, at the Steve Jobs Theatre, and streamed live. But given the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the event will be a virtual one – similar to WWDC 2020.
While the event will occur in the US on September 15th, it will actually start in the early hours of September 16th around Australia. In Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne the event will begin at 3 am AEST. While in Perth it will begin at 1 am AWST. Event times for Australian cities are as follows:
Sydney (New South Wales): 3 am AEST
Brisbane (Queensland): 3 am (AEST)
Melbourne (Victoria): 3 am (AEST)
Adelaide (South Australia): 2:30 am (ACST)
Perth (Western Australia): 1 am (AWST)
Where to watch
There will be several locations in which the event will be streamed live online. Including Apple’s website, the Apple TV app, YouTube, and more. Additionally, it will be possible to download and watch the event after it occurs.
