The next Apple Event is happening on September 15th 2020, at 6pm BST/10am PDT/1pm EDT, and you'll be able to watch live as Apple reveals… whatever Apple reveals!

You'll be able to watch online at apple.com, and we assume it will be broadcast live on YouTube as well, since recent other events have been, but that's not confirmed yet. If it is, we'll embed the video on this page.

The latest rumours say that Apple is likely to reveal Apple Watch Series 6 and a new iPad Air (maybe with an updated design to match the new-style iPad Pro) at this event, and normally we'd expect a September Apple event to be all about the iPhone 12 too.

But some noted Apple leakers are saying they think this event will be only about the new Apple Watch and iPad, with the iPhone not being announced until October in a separate event.

In some ways, this fits with Apple having already said to expect a later iPhone launch than usual this year, but that doesn't rule out the iPhone 12 appearing at this event in itself: Apple never releases phones until weeks after their announcement, and with this even not happening until mid-September, an announcement here for an October launch still fits with Apple's history.

Apple often seems to drop little hints/references into its event invitation designs, and the one for this event is notable in two ways: first, the design of the Apple logo looks drawn, perhaps referencing the iPad Air and Apple Pencil; but the more interesting theory comes from the tagline "Time flies" and a hidden easter egg on Apple's event page. If you're on an iPhone or iPad and you tap the logo, it switches to an augmented reality view, with the logo twisting and turning to form the date of the event.

It's possible that these actually point to an iPhone announcement in this event, because one of the most big (and likely to be true) rumours about the iPhone 12 is that it will have a 3D depth sensor in the camera array, matching the one on the 2020 iPad Pro. This depth sensor really helps to make augmented reality more stable and realistic, and one of the most common names for this type of sensor is a 'time of flight' sensor. "Time flies", indeed.

There's also a remote, minute, teeny-weeny chance that "Time flies" refers to the Apple Watch. Possibly.

There's a big chance that new AirPods are coming this year too, and just before Christmas seems like the time Apple would want to launch them, so perhaps we'll hear about these at the event.

And we know that Apple is planning to launch its first Macs made with Apple processors before the end of the year, but we would expect to see those a little later, again with their own event: we have no idea how many Apple will launch, or exactly what form they'll take, or even exactly what the processors inside will be like, so we suspect Apple will really want to give them their own spotlight.

However, the latest rumours suggest that a 14-inch MacBook Pro will be launched next week. We're a little skeptical, since the 13-inch MacBook Pro was just refreshed, but perhaps Apple plans to offer both Intel and Apple-chip versions initially.

Whatever happens on the 15th, we'll bring you all the news!
