Release of the new iPad Air and two Apple Watch models is confirmed by an authoritative source
On the eve of Apple's fall presentation, many insiders began to actively publish leaks indicating the plans of the American company to release at least seven new devices by the end of 2020. Authoritative analyst Mark Gurman said that the corporation will release at least three new items, in addition to the branded line of smartphones, and named both the device models and their key features.
Bloomberg editor and industry analyst Mark Gurman said that in addition to the flagship iPhone 12 line, Apple is preparing to introduce the new iPad Air 4 this fall. Its key feature will be a bezel-less design that matches the Pro-models. According to network sources, the gadget will be equipped with either a Face ID face scanner or a Touch ID scanner integrated into the power key. In addition, for the first time in the history of the line, the manufacturer can abandon its own Lightning port in favor of USB Type-C.
Gurman also noted that the American company will update the smart watch series with two Apple Watch models at once - the successors of Series 5 and Series 3. One of the new products will be positioned as the flagship, and the other will take the segment of more affordable wearable devices of the company. One of the most long-awaited features of the Apple Watch Series 6 may be a sensor that can detect the level of oxygen in the blood.
As for the iPhone 12, according to the analyst, the basic versions of the smartphone will go on sale in October. Their case will be made of aluminum, while premium models will get a stainless steel case. Finally, according to leaks, Apple is working on a new generation of Apple TV set-top box, but its presentation may be delayed until next year.
