that’s the speculation. But also:
however, and it could just be a random date entered for a livestream test, or the date that was used last year as last year's iPhone event took place on Tuesday, September 10.

Apple does not typically hold events on Thursdays, so September 10 would be an unusual choice.

I am with you on that.

It did seem very odd for Thursday to be an event day. It seems like it's always on a Tuesday.

The other thing we have been hearing is that some of the announcements -- mainly the Apple Watch (and I think) new iPad will be done via Press Release. So, that date could be related to the press announcement.

I am sure all of this will be solidified very shortly as we head into September.

Big updates to the iPad Air and iPad mini?

“Kuo: Apple Glasses to Launch in 2022 at Earliest, New 10.8-Inch iPad and 9-Inch iPad Mini Coming in 2020/2021 - MacRumors”
Are VR glasses usually worn over prescription lenses? I wonder when we’ll get to the point that VR glasses will have prescriptions that can be adjusted to the user?

My understanding is that you would get your prescription fitted for the VR eyewear. I could be wrong about that. However it seems
people would look silly walking around with essentially 3-D looking glasses over their own

This is a remarkable rumor, and I don't believe it. I don't belive that two months from shipping, Apple is still undecided on the hardware components. At this point, that's all locked down and they're in manufacturing, or very close to it.

If this were true I would rather they delay the iPhone 12 Pro launch until they get it right. Otherwise, it's a missing feature that we will have to wait another year for.

high frame rate screens aren’t deciding factor for me. Pretty far down the list of features I’m looking for. I’d much rather a screen that can dim way down while still looking good for night use.

Not about new product rumors, but sort of related: about resale value and upgrade purchase decisions.

I missed this rumor from seemingly well-regarded rumorer, Jon Prosser. If true, I may not be able to buy an iphone until November. I was hoping for a tech-dopamine hit in October on the outside, Waiting until November is going to be hard. :)

w/c is week commencing right? 7th is Labor day so that is out. Rumor is the 10th which is weirdly a Thursday. So either the 8th or 10th if Prosser is right.

Will see but count me in!

Yes, “w/c” is week commencing. Totally not obvious and I forgot to copy that explanation in.

Will be watching for iPad release to see if it interests me.

but I think we want iPhone Pro this year? So maybe waiting for November on that,

If you didn't see it, rumors about an ARM MacBook releasing this Fall. My guess has been that Apple will debut its "Apple Silicon" first in a laptop to demonstrate both its speed and battery life. I was starting to think it might be a MacBook Pro to come first, after WWDC. But maybe it will be the MacBook as I was guessing previously.

Caveat rumors. Might all be wrong and we don't see the laptop until 2021. Don't know until we know. :)

iPhone rumors are converging. Implied is the big iPhone 12 Pro will have a 120Hz screen.

Also this if you're hoping 5G is a "killer-app" for a $1000 pocket computer:
a few testers have found 5G disappointing with the current 5G networks "not improving connection speeds much."

Yeah, I think a lot of people are going to be gravely disappointed in 5G.

I provided the YouTube video of Renee Richie (perhaps in this thread) who basically talks about the technology not being at the point where everyone can get optimal speeds. You really need to be very, very close to one of the phone company's 5G transponders to get those incredible speeds and most people don't have that kind of access.

So, if I am understanding this all correctly, the 5G is going to be no faster than 4G for the near future.
