Leaker claims no Apple Watch announcement this month

According to a prominent Apple leaker, who goes by the Twitter handle “L0vetodream,” Apple will not launch nor announce its sixth-generation Apple Watch in September. Rather, fans of the wearable device should expect an official Apple Watch Series 6 announcement in October.

“There is no Watch this month,” reads the leaker’s cryptic tweet.

However, you should take this claim with a grain of salt. With the exception of the original Apple Watch, other models were unveiled during iPhone presentations rather at separate events. In addition, another prominent leaker, Jon Prosser, recently predicted that Apple would unveil the new watch alongside new iPhones and iPads in September.

Specifically, Prosser claimed in a tweet last month that Apple would debut the new Apple Watch Series 6 model quietly via a press release, which he claims will be issued in the week starting September 7.

According to Bloomberg, Apple’s fall product blitz includes multiple product releases. In addition to update the iPhone and Apple Watch lineups, Apple should also release the iPad Air 4 with some iPad Pro features, like the Smart Connector and USBC, plus a smaller and more affordable HomePod and a low-cost replacement for the Apple Watch Series 3.

Bloomberg in the same report mentioned AirTags, Apple’s rumored item-tracking accessory, but without mentioning release timeframe. As for the next Apple TV, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman believes it won’t arrive before 2021. The device is expected to sport faster chips optimized for gaming and a redesigned remote with Find My-like features.
