As all know by now, Apple's Event will be held on September 15 next Tuesday at 10:00 AM PDT. From the rumors, we expect to hear about the upcoming iPad, HomePod mini, AirTags, AirPods Studio, and possibly two new versions of the Apple Watch.

Apple prepared the link to the YouTube video that will be used to stream the online event next week. Here is the video if you missed it:

YouTube Video Metadata Doesn't Mention iPhone 12

While there isn't much to look for in the video until September 15, Apple hid some hints for us to search for in the metadata. If you check the metadata for the video, we see the keywords for the new Apple Watch "Series 6."

Guilherme Rambo's tweet reveals a screenshot of the "Series 6" keywords used for Apple's YouTube link for the virtual launch.

The keyword that is surprisingly not included in the "iPhone 12." Does this mean Apple doesn't intend to talk about the iPhone 12 models at all?

The Approximate Release Date for iPhone 12

Hope for the new iPhone series is restored when well-known leaker Evan Blass shared a tweet today revealing the confirmation that the iPhone 12 will get 5G connectivity.

Evan Blass' tweet could also mean that the iPhone 12 will be shipped later than we expected.

Traditionally, Apple iPhone pre-orders usually fall on a Friday, ending on Thursday the following week.

Some predictions are eyeing October 20 as mentioned by the carrier in Evan Blass' tweet. Though this could be true, the dates could alter throughout that week.

Since Jon Prosser's predictions have been correct so far, we could expect an iPhone 12 event during the week of October 12 and shipments the week after starting on October 19.

Nobody talks about the iPhone 12 Pro

While we continue to keep a close eye on iPhone 12 updates, most Apple leakers and rumors only focus on the iPhone 12 device and not the iPhone 12 Pro.

Prosser's predictions see the iPhone 12 Pro models being released and shipped in November, but there are no exact dates nor 'week of' dates we can keep in mind, unlike the iPhone 12.

If the iPhone 12 Pro is delayed, it could be mainly due to production issues, resulting from the effects of the pandemic.

This could also explain why the iPhone 12 will not be announced until after the Apple Watch Series, iPad, AirTags, AirPods Studio, and HomePod mini are shared first. The supply to produce the new iPhone may not be ready for all of us to see and pre-order yet.

Until the details are confirmed, make sure to save Apple's YouTube link and get ready for next week's virtual event.
