According to the rule of the past years, apple generally chooses to launch a new iPhone and a new Apple watch at its annual conference in September. However, the launch in October (if any) mostly focuses on MAC and iPad. But in view of the special circumstances of this year, the autumn conference to be held at 1 a.m. tomorrow may break the tradition.
There is no doubt that this autumn conference will continue to be recorded and broadcast,AppleThe feasibility of this mode has been fully proved in wwdc20 activities, and its viewing and viewing experience is even better than the previous live broadcast to some extent.
Two apple watches, one of which is the "Se"
No surprise, the apple watch series 6 will be launched in the fall launch on the 16th to continue to focus on health monitoring, and the appearance is likely to change, such as narrower borders, thinner fuselages, and even more color schemes.
According to multiple sources, Apple will introduce a colorful body in the apple watch series 6, which is likely to include the blue color of this year's invitation letter, and the optional materials of the watch strap may be more abundant.
The concept map of rice making
At present, the color matching of different material shells of Apple watch series 6 is relatively single. The color matching of aluminum metal shell includes silver, deep space gray and gold; the color matching of stainless steel shell includes stainless steel primary color, deep space black color and gold color; the color matching of titanium metal shell is titanium metal primary color and deep space black color; the color matching of precision ceramics is only white.
If Apple watch series 6 really introduces new color matching, it is worth looking forward to. After all, Apple's accomplishments in materials and color matching are obvious to all.
Interestingly, since the apple watch series 3, Apple has built-in altimeter for the apple watch, which will automatically turn on when the wearer is doing physical training such as walking, running, cycling, etc., and can track the altitude data by measuring the air pressure difference,
If Apple watch series 6 upgrades the altimeter this time, maybe Apple will create a new app for it like the compass of Apple watch series 5 before. Users can check the altitude data at any time through this app, and of course, they may alsoiPhoneSimilarly, put the altitude data in the compass app.
Although the battery capacity of the apple watch series 6 has not improved much, apple is likely to choose a faster charging speed to ease the user's anxiety about battery life.
According to the source, this year's apple watch series 6 will add fast charging, which will bring about faster charging speed. The data shows that it takes about 1.5 hours for Apple watch series 5 to charge from 0% to 80%, and 2.5 hours to fully fill up, which belongs to the slow speed level. If the charging speed can be increased to 30-40% from 80% Minutes, perhaps to a certain extent, to alleviate the user's anxiety.
▎ Apple watch series 6 rumors are summarized as follows:
1. If the appearance changes, the black edge of the screen may become narrower, and the fuselage will become thinner, and new color matching will be added;
2. Performance upgrading or carrying new S6 chip;

In addition to the apple watch series 6, Apple may also launch an "Apple watch se.".
According to the source, the apple watch se will adopt a full screen design similar to the apple watch series 4, and will cut some functions to lower the price. At the same time, it will distinguish from the apple watch series 6, such as the electrode type heart rate sensor supporting ECG function, and the screen is always on, which will not appear on the apple watch se.
After five years of development, apple watch, which debuted in 2015, has proved to be another successful project launched by apple after the iPhone. According to the May financial report, wearable devices including apple watch and airpods have become Apple's third largest revenue source.
The launch of Apple watch se will help Apple further seize market share of mid range smart watches and, together with the iPhone se, broaden the moat of Apple's ecology.

2. Some functions were castrated, such as the screen is always on, ECG, etc;
3. Equipped with S5 chip, it has the same performance as apple watch series 5
Two iPads, one of which may be a full screen iPad air
In addition to the two apple watches, we are likely to have two iPads, the eighth generation iPad and the fourth generation iPad air, at the autumn launch in the early morning of the 16th.
The former will be the iterative model of the seventh generation iPad released in 2019. According to the source of information, the main upgrade point of this model will be in the chip aspect, from A10 fusion to A12, and the performance shortcomings of entry-level iPad may be supplemented.
On the other hand, the eighth generation iPad will continue to use the 10.2-inch non full screen design, other specifications may remain unchanged, and continue to maintain a low price to attract more new users.
The iPad air 4 is likely to get a new "iPad Pro full screen" design, which has been disclosed in previously exposed manuals.
The full screen iPad air 4 may be equipped with a 10.9-inch screen, which is expected to be close to the size of the 11 inch iPad pro, but will not use faceid face recognition, but will use touchid fingerprint identification integrated into the power button.
