When is Apple's September event?

The Apple September launch event is less than two weeks away, and the iPhone-maker is expected to launch its next generation of iPhones, the Apple Watch, iPad and more. The event is expected to be held on September 14, and like recent Apple launches, this one will be virtual-only, too.

Amazon and Best Buy are giving you another chance to grab a 40mm Apple Watch Series 6 for the lowest price it has ever been available on the websites. You can now get the Apple smartwatch in Product Red with GPS for $249, or $150 less than its original retail price. That's also the same price as the 40mm Apple Watch SE and $30 less than the 44mm version of the entry-level smartwatch. If you missed the opportunity to buy the Watch Series 6 at this price point back in April, here's your chance to do so. Take note that it may look like it's listed for $399 on Amazon, but it'll show up as $249 after you add it your cart. 

The Watch Series 6 has a blood oxygen sensor, which shines a combination of LED and infrared light through the skin in your fingertip to detect your blood's oxygen saturation levels. In other words, it can tell how well your lungs are delivering oxygenated blood throughout your body. However, we were more impressed with its under-the-hood upgrades, as we mentioned in our review where we gave it a score of 89.

The model uses Apple's new S6 chip, resulting in a zippier performance compared to its predecessors. Apps launch more quickly and swiping through watchfaces feel faster, as well. It's also more energy efficient, which translates to longer battery life, and charges faster than the previous Watch generation. In addition, the device has all the features that come with watchOS 7, including a handwashing timer and a sleep tracker.

Only the 40mm GPS-only Product Red version is on sale at the moment, and you can't get the other colors for the same price. Product Red versions of Apple's devices are special, though, because the tech giant has been giving proceeds from their sales to the Global Fund's HIV/AIDS programs for over a decade now. The initiative's goal shifted last year due to the pandemic, and Apple announced that it will be donating "100 percent of eligible proceeds" from Product Red purchases to the Global Fund's COVID‑19 response efforts until December 30th, 2021.

Apple Watch Series 7 Rumored to Have First Display Upgrade in Years

Yahoo Lifestyle 04 September, 2021 - 11:50am

Have you been considering an Apple Watch for yourself? Well, Amazon is running a surprising deal on Apple’s latest Watch model. And that includes a huge $150 discount off the most popular SKU among our readers. Believe it or not, that means you can actually pick up an Apple Watch at the lowest price ever!

It should be no surprise that the Apple Watch S6 was the #2 most popular tech gift ahead of the holidays last year. The newest Apple Watch takes everything people love about Apple’s smartwatch and makes it even better. On top of that, the Apple Watch now includes a built-in pulse oximeter feature. That is obviously a very timely addition to Apple’s top wearable. Amazon has been running a big sale for a while, offering great discounts on so many Apple Watch Series 6 SKUs. Now, several additional discounts have been added to the sale with new all-time low prices. But several options have already sold out. That means you’ll need to hurry if you’re hoping to get in on the action.

There are plenty of Apple products on sale right now at Amazon, too. AirPods Pro are down to the best price of 2021 so far. You’ll find great prices on both AirPods 2 models as well, and Amazon currently has the AirPods Max on sale at the lowest price ever! There are also deep discounts on Apple’s new M1 MacBook Pro, which is $150 off right now.

But what you really should check out is the sale that slashes up to $150 off the best-selling Apple Watch Series 6. If you get the red version, you’ll find prices as low as $359 for the cellular model and $249 for the GPS model. That’s insane!

Punk knows who he’d partner with for a Young Bucks match, and it’s kind of a spoiler

Wccftech 04 September, 2021 - 09:30am

We’ve heard versions of Punk’s answers to most of these questions by now, but his comfort talking to Renee makes this one a fun listen anyway. She’s also able to get just a little more out of him amidst the bants.

Take this exchange during the obligatory “who do you want to work with in AEW?” discussion:

Punk: I want to wrestle Jon. I’ve never wrestled Jon Moxley.

Renee: You have not.

Punk: I want to wrestle Young Bucks. I have to find the right tag partner for that.

Renee: Who would you want to tag with?

Punk: I mean, if we’re fantasy booking...

Renee: We’re fantasy booking.

Punk: When’s this come out?

Renee: Saturday.

Punk: Saturday, uh, okay [both laugh, more like cackle actually]

Renee: I mean, are we just giving away spoilers here?

Punk: I don’t think it’s necessarily giving away spoilers. It’s me putting my booker hat on, of all the possibilities, I would do CM Punk & The American Dragon [Bryan Danielson] vs. The Young Bucks. [Renee makes an extended croaking sound] How do you not? It’s so obvious that’s what you do.

Later on, Paquette asks if he got in any trouble for his YES chant tease on the Aug. 25 Dynamite. Punk says no one said anything to him about it all.

Rumor has it the former Daniel Bryan will debut at All Out tomorrow night (Sept. 5) in Chicagoland, and the “when does this come out” part sure sounds like confirmation to me. Does it mean Tony Khan will greenlight Punk & Danielson vs. The Bucks at some point in the future?

If he does, I’m gonna make that same croaking sound Renee does.

Apple Watch 7: Every rumor about release date, price and new health features

CNET 03 September, 2021 - 12:18pm

Renders of the rumored Apple Watch 7.

Are you looking for a smartwatch with a larger flat-edge design, an improved battery life and new health features? If so, you may want to wait for the Apple Watch 7. We hope to see the tech giant's new smartwatch at a rumored September event alongside the iPhone 13 and AirPods 3, but it could be delayed due to manufacturing difficulties. Until then, buzz about the Apple Watch 7 continues to fly. The latest gossip says the new Apple Watch won't be compatible with current watch bands

The new smartwatch will come with Apple's WatchOS 8 software, announced at WWDC this past June. If rumors pan out, the new Watch could be a worthwhile upgrade from last year's Apple Watch Series 6, which Apple unveiled at a virtual event in September 2020. Apple also released a more affordable midrange smartwatch last year, the Apple Watch SE, which could itself be getting a successor in 2022.

Here's everything we've heard so far about the Apple Watch 7, including rumors, leaks, speculation and dreams. We'll update this story as we hear more. And if you're thirsty for more Apple rumors, check out our iPhone 13 rumor roundup, our best guesses for the iPhone 13 release date, how the iPhone 13 might compare to the iPhone 12 and what the iPhone 13's camera specs might be. Plus, is it worth it to buy an iPhone 12 right now? What about an iPhone 11 or an iPhone SE?

We speculate that the iPhone 13 event will take place on Sept. 8, but this is an educated guess and not based on rumors or leaks. You can read more about our Apple event date predictions, including our patented (not really) "Labor Day hypothesis," in our iPhone 13 release date story. If both assumptions are correct, we'd expect to see the Apple Watch 7 on Sept. 8 as well.

Although we don't have an official release date, rumors by French blog Consomac and later reported on by 9to5Mac suggest that Apple has already registered its new smartwatch with the Eurasian Economic Commission under A2473, A2474, A2475, A2476, A2477 and A2478.

But an August report by Nikkei Asia suggests that Apple's new smartwatch could be delayed due to manufacturing difficulties. Small-scale production of the Apple Watch 7 reportedly began last week, but confronted multiple difficulties fitting all the new components of the watch's complex design together. This prevented it from being moved to full-scale manufacturing, according to the report. 

Regardless of rumors, Apple has a pretty consistent history of unveiling its new smartwatch models annually in mid-September. Even in 2020, when the pandemic made product announcement events go virtual and caused disruptions in the supply chain, (delaying the unveiling of Apple's iPhone 12 line for a month), the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE both made their appearance on Sept. 15, 2020, at an online event. They were released three days later on Sept. 18.

The biggest buzz around the Apple Watch Series 7 is whether or not it will include a blood glucose monitor.

Apple's previous three Watch models launched with a $399 price tag, going up for the larger size and for cellular connectivity. (The Apple Watch SE deviated from the $399 price tradition, launching at $279. But the SE model is Apple's "affordable" smartwatch, meaning it sacrificed some bells and whistles for cost savings.) 

While we haven't heard any credible rumors about the cost of the Apple Watch 7, we would expect Apple to stick with its usual structure and launch its next-gen model at around the same $399 price. Of course, it's always possible that Apple raises the price in 2021, but because we don't see any major hardware upgrades or new features on the horizon that would warrant a bump in price, this seems unlikely.

Stay up-to-date on the latest news, reviews and advice on iPhones, iPads, Macs, services and software.

Leaker Jon Prosser (whose rumor track record is fairly spotty) in May released Apple Watch 7 renders that allege a "major redesign" of the wearable. Kuo also predicted a "significant form factor design change" for the 2021 Apple Watch almost a year ago. 

The Apple Watch 7 could come in a new sage green color.

Prosser's renders, which he claims are based on a combination of real images and CAD files leaked to him by "sources," reveal thinner bezels and flat edges on the Apple Watch 7. Apple also flattened the edges of the iPhone 12 lineup last fall, giving its flagship phone a modern profile that CNET's Patrick Holland called a "slabular beauty."

Speculation from 91mobiles in August aligned with Prosser's renders. According to the report, the new Apple Watch will ditch the rounded edges and opt for a box-like, flat-edged design. The new look would match Apple's recent aesthetic choices for the iPad Pro and iPhone 12

A Bloomberg report in June also predicted thinner bezels for the Apple Watch 7, as well as a "new lamination technique that brings the display closer to the front cover."

The new Apple Watch could also be a little larger than its predecessor. The Apple Watch Series 7 could come in 41mm and 45mm case sizes, according to a leaker on Chinese social media platform Weibo, reported on by MacRumors. The rumor was later supported by Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. Since the Apple Watch Series 4 in 2017, the case sizes for the tech giant's smartwatch have come in 40mm and 44mm options. 

Due to the increased size, the Apple Watch 7 may not be compatible with current Apple Watch bands. Leaker Max Weinbach, citing unnamed Apple store employees, says that the tech giant's stores are not getting anymore shipments of 40mm and 44mm bands. Weinbach adds that he expects the upcoming Apple Watch to use different bands that won't fit older smartwatch models.

Rumored colors for the Apple Watch 7 include a new sage green color, which Prosser compares to the green option for the AirPods Max, Apple's over-ear headphones. The Series 6 comes in silver, gray, gold, blue and red (aluminum); silver, graphite and gold (steel); and titanium and black (titanium) colors. Prosser's renders of the Apple Watch 7 include red, blue, black and silver, in addition to sage green, though we don't know yet whether these are the actual colors Apple will release.

In terms of material, Apple could get rid of the titanium Edition model for the Series 7. In his PowerOn newsletter, Gurman says wouldn't be surprised if the pricier titanium version, which starts at $799 for the Apple Watch 6, was dropped. Apple has previously offered both ceramic and real gold models.

Apple Watch 7 could be a game-changer for Apple if its battery life were to improve dramatically. The past three models have all offered about an 18-hour battery life, with the Series 6 housing a 265.9-mAh battery. We haven't heard any rumors about the Series 7's battery specs in particular, but we have heard that it could boast a smaller, double-sided S7 chip, which would free up space for -- what else? -- a bigger battery. 

The next Apple Watch could feature a big redesign, including flattened edges like the iPhone 12.

Blood glucose monitoring would be an amazing addition to the Apple Watch, but don't hold your breath because rumors are mixed. Interest in the new sensor was stoked by Apple itself in a survey to Apple Watch users to gauge interest in new features -- one of which was blood sugar tracking. But a subsequent Bloomberg report all but killed those dreams. While the new sensor will likely be included in a future iteration of Apple's smartwatch, it is unlikely to arrive in the Series 7 and maybe not in Apple's 2022 Watch model either.

Samsung announced a new noninvasive blood glucose monitoring technology last year and though it didn't specify where or when we might see this technology implemented in the near future. Apple has a history of letting rivals release buzzy new features first, so an Apple Watch blood glucose sensor in 2022 or even 2023 wouldn't be a huge surprise, but a blow nevertheless to iOS users with diabetes.

Other rumors from Nikkei Asia suggest the Apple Watch 7 could feature blood pressure measurement. Addressing manufacturing issues due to the watch's complex design, Nikkei's report says that one of the difficulties comes from the watch's blood pressure measurement system, which requires manufacturers to fit more components into the watch's body. Gurman, however, said that there is "no chance" the Apple Watch 7 would house the new health feature. 

That's all we know so far about the Apple Watch Series 7, but we'll update this story as new rumors come to light. In the meantime, here's everything we know about the iPhone 13, all the best new features coming in WatchOS 8, how to decide between the Apple Watch Series 6, Series 3 and SE, settings to change on any new Apple Watch and the best Apple Watch apps.
