w/c = week commencing (for context)— Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) August 12, 2020
With the staggered release of iPhone 12 and uncertainty of final dates for Pro models, there's a chance that the dates could slip/change
I'll let you know if anything gets changed! But for now, this is the info in the system 😏
Announcing the new Apple Watch and iPad in a press release instead of including it as part of the fall event would be a departure from previous years for Apple. Normally, the new Apple Watch is always part of the same event as the new iPhone.
Apple confirmed that the launch of the iPhone 12 would be delayed in its recent earnings call with investors, but did specificy the exact new launch dates.
