Only a couple of days leading up to the September 15 Apple Event, we start to hear more possibly predictions about the products launching next week.

One of these products includes the lower-priced Apple Watch SE. Other rumors about Apple's current and future projects extend to its Apple Card service. Rumor has it that Apple Card could go international.

Here are the details we know so far about the Apple Watch SE and International Apple Card service.

The Newer and Cheaper Apple Watch Model

A replacement for the Apple Watch Series 3 was no surprise as Bloomberg's Debby Wu and Mark Gurman hinted at a newer and cheaper model to add to the Apple Watch collection.

The possible reason for the creation of the Apple Watch SE is to give consumers another option compared to the highly-anticipated Apple Watch Series 6 that is expected to be launched during the event on September 15.

Well-known Apple leaker and tech analyst Jon Prosser tweeted earlier today his estimated specifications for the Apple Watch SE.

Although not every tweet Prosser shares is accurate, his predictions are usually quite reliable to make a calculated estimate time of arrival for Apple's products.

In his tweet, Prosser reveals two sizes, 40 mm and 44 mm, both with GPS function. He also lists below that the Apple Watch SE has the "Series 4 design, No always-on display, no ECG and the M9 chip."

If the Apple Watch SE is indeed real and the lower model of the Apple Watch Series 6, it is not surprising that some enhanced features are excluded.

Prosser also shares that the Apple Watch SE may be nicknamed as "Apple Watch" or "Apple Watch Pro." We will have to wait till September 15 to confirm these details.

Apple Card could be expanding beyond the US

If you've been eyeing the Apple Card and wondered when Apple will give non-Americans access to the big tech company's exclusive card service, your wish could be answered soon.

Just over a year from its initial launch, the Apple Card may be extending its service outside of the United States.

The clue that hinted Apple may be extending Apple Card to international countries is in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) references seen in the iOS 14 beta 8 code.

The GDPR follows the European Union (EU) law with regards to data protection and privacy for consumers.

To refer to EU in the iOS 14 beta 8 code could mean iPhones using the upcoming iOS 14 update could have access to link their Apple Card to it.

At the same time, the GDPR could mean something else in the code. Nothing is certain as the code is also seen in previous iOS updates.

Designed to "help customers lead a healthier financial life," you will need to keep your eyes out for updates later this year to see if Apple will confirm this rumor.
