Target is apparently working on promoting sales of Apple’s “iPhone 12” and “Apple Watch Series 6”, with an incomplete image of a circular showing the retailer is seemingly prepared for Tuesday’s launch event. The ad notably omits the long-rumored Apple Watch SE that is suspected to appear at Apple’s Special Event on September 15th.
Regarding the Apple Watch Series 6, rumours point to the addition of new health features rather than a design overhaul. Improvements could include a larger display, a faster processor (perhaps the A13 Bionic chipset) and maybe a USB Type-C connection instead of Apple’s Lightning port. A covering text box mentions how the images are placeholder and are awaiting new images post-launch to be inserted into the document, including OtterBox cases and screen protectors. While Apple confirmed that the new iPhone will be available “a few weeks later” than its usual mid-September launch, our best educated guess for the event will be either October 13 or 14. Although the leaker does not say what new color is coming to the Apple Watch, it seems likely that it will be blue to match the new iPhone 12 models. References made to new Apple products are accompanied by placeholder images of existing hardware including iPhone 11 and Apple Watch Series 5. Whatever the exact devices the tweet is referring to may be, the leaker alleges that they will be available to order on Tuesday. This approximate price range probably corresponds to the upcoming iPad Air 4, which is also expected to be announced next week.
