Apple Announces Fall Media Event

As first reported by Rene Ritchie, Apple has announced a media event for September 10, 2019 at 10:00 am Pacific. The event will be held at Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino.

Based on widespread speculation, Apple is expected to introduce three new iPhones based on the iPhone XS design with a new rear-facing, three-camera array that includes a new wide-angle lens and will be able to take better low light photos. Rumors also point to the introduction of new Apple Watch models, and possibly a 10.2-inch iPad to replace the current 9.7-inch model. Apple is said to be working on a 16” MacBook Pro, new water-resistant, noise-cancelling AirPods, and a new HomePod, but it’s likely if those products materialize at least some won’t be shipped until later this year or 2020.

In addition to hardware, Apple is expected to announce release dates for updates to its operating systems, including iOS 13, iPadOS, macOS Catalina, and watchOS 6. As in the past, Apple should release a Gold Master of the OSes shortly after the event with a public release date within approximately 10 days.
