Apple looks set to launch two new products this week according to two separate leaks. Both Jon Prosser and @LeaksApplePro have locked in September 8 for the launch of Apple’s latest products. Both tipsters expect the Apple Watch Series 6 and the redesigned iPad Air 4 to land this week ahead of next month’s iPhone 12 launch.

The Apple Watch Series 6 is expected to continue with the same design as last year’s Apple Watch Series 5 which debuted around this time last year. The biggest feature upgrade in terms of sensors is new support for blood-oxygen tracking while it will also ship with Apple's upgraded watchOS 7. It is thought that the Watch Series 6 could also debut alongside a new cheaper Apple Watch dubbed the Apple Watch SE that should offer solid performance at a more affordable price point.

The new iPad Air 4 is set to debut a long overdue redesign with a design language more in line with the premium iPad Pro line. Expect much thinner bezels and a squared off chassis that as pictured in the renders below. It is expected to offer an IPS LCD panel at around 10.8- to 11-inches. Although an A14 Bionic has been touted as a possible chipset, it seems more likely to pick up an A13 Bionic SoC. RAM is also expected to be capped at 4 GB leaving a clear choice for customers who want more performance and RAM to opt for the more expensive iPad Pro line.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
