Expected Apple Event Announcement
Although Apple has maintained a tendency to remain silent about today’s activities, rumors have hinted at our expectations for Apple’s activities.
Apple Watch Series 6
One of the main announcements at the Apple event today is Apple Watch Series6. Rumor has it that the next-generation smartwatch led by Tim Cook will have a built-in oximeter to measure oxygen levels and provide pulse tracking. And heart rate monitoring. You can also expect faster processors to provide enhanced performance. In addition, the new Apple Watch may retain the 40mm and 44mm sizes that the Series 4 debuted in 2018. It will also be equipped with an always-on display, which first appeared in Series 5 last year.
Apple Watch SE
In addition to Apple Watch Series 6, there are rumors that Apple also plans to launch a reasonably priced model that can be called Apple Watch SE. For companies such as Fitbit, Huawei and Samsung, they have all provided a series of smart watches to counter the Apple Watch series. This new model may make competition more intense. You can look forward to the 40mm and 44mm models in the SE series, as well as GPS support. Apple Watch SE also has a cellular version, although you won’t get the always-on display and ECG features.
iPad Air 4 aka iPad Air (2020)
The third release to be held at today’s Apple event will revolve around the new iPad Air, which may be the successor to the iPad Air 3 that was first released in March last year. The new model may have a similar design to the iPad Pro series and provide a larger screen-to-body ratio. You can also omit the traditional home button with Touch ID. In addition, despite the similar look and feel, with the official launch of the iPad Air (2020), the iPad Air 4 may lack some of the core features of the iPad Pro.
In addition to new products, Apple is likely to be surprised by its unified subscription product (called Apple One). The new product may start with offering the basic tier of Apple Music and Apple TV+, while the higher-priced version will provide additional access to Apple Arcade. It will also add Apple News+ to the next level.In addition, Apple may provide enhanced iCloud storage
In the past, companies including Google and Microsoft have provided service bundles for their subscription-based services. However, Apple may use its strength in the hardware field to expand its unified subscription products.
No iPhone model
Apple is unlikely to launch any new smartphones today.
