Apple's event is slated to start at 10 am Pacific Time on Tuesday, September 15.

There is no official source to confirm this rumour; however, Apple has launched a short video that is titled "Time Flies" which may indicate that the launch event is near. The event is being billed as "Time Flies", which would seem to point to the Apple Watch being the focus.

Like its past few events, Apple will also live stream the event on its YouTube channel. The next-generation smartwatch comes with a host of new features, including a sensor to measure blood oxygen levels and an always-on altimeter.

But there are several ways you can support the site directly even if you're using an ad blocker and hate online shopping. The sensor also captures periodic background measurements when you're sleeping and inactive. Reports suggest that the upcoming watch may have the same chip as the Watch Series 6 but could have a cheaper build quality. Offered in 64GB and 256GB configurations in silver, space gray, rose gold, green, and sky blue colors, the models will start from $599 for the Wi-Fi version, $729 with cellular.

The services division also includes Apple's app store, which is under regulatory scrutiny for charging a commission of up to 30% for products sold through other companies who have no other option but to use the store to reach the mostly affluent consumers who buy iPhone products. The watch will have a more powerful processing chip. The watch will come in two sizes and both sizes will be available in Bluetooth and LTE variants.

This week's announcement included a new service by Apple called Apple One, and will be available this fall.

A new JPMorgan note forecasts Apple's product line-up with some striking features in the second half of the year. New videos will be added each week, and will sync with Apple Music. The Wall Street Journal reported in April that Apple had pushed back production by a month as the pandemic disrupted manufacturing and supply chains. Family plans are $19.95 a month and a Premier plan is $29.95 a month. That being said, there are always compromises when it comes to entry-level products - it just depends on what's more important to you, price or design. It has the same design as the previous model but now features the advanced A12 Bionic chipset.

While you can already do most of these activities, including estimating the number of calories burned, etc., with each of your workouts (and certainly without owning an Apple Watch), Fitness+ is a really neat service that will try to make physical exercising as fun and as informative as possible.
