Apple’s iPhone 12 launch delayed to October 2020, Apple will launch Apple Watch Series 6 tomorrow virtually says serial leaker
It is September and Apple fanbois are eagerly awaiting the mega iPhone 12 launch event. But all things are not going as per Apple’s plan and it seems that iPhone 12 will come in late September or early October. But that has not stopped Apple from launching its new smartwatch. According to the serial leaker, Jon Prosser, Apple will launch its latest version of the smartwatch, the Apple Watch Series 6 tomorrow through a press release.
Apple press release is currently scheduled for Tuesday (September 8) at 9:00am EST — though, I should note that it’s not locked in until the press has been briefed, day of.
I’ll tweet early that morning to update you if it changes.

Apple will have to make do with the virtual launch event for both its smartwatch and iPhone 12 launch as launching new products in front of a live audience is obviously pretty much impossible right now. But one had hoped for a proper virtual launch, instead Apple will actually release the Apple Watch Series 6 through a detailed press release published on the official apple.com website.
It is likely that once the press release is issued, Apple will start taking pre-orders on its website. In all likelihood, you can pre-order Apple Watch Series 6 from Friday, while the shipping will start a week later.
Apple’s 2020 iPhone 12 launch date
Unlike the press release launch of Apple Watch Series 6, it is hoped that Apple would give a proper virtual introduction to its iPhone 12 later in the month or early October.
The launch of the iPhone 12 has been pushed by a month as the Cupertino-based tech giant has struggled with supply-chain delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
