Apple Watch Series 6 Listed as Keyword in Apple’s YouTube Event Video

Apple this morning announced an upcoming September 15 event, and shared a YouTube placeholder video for the livestream that will be available on that date.

Metadata for the YouTube video includes several keywords as noted by Guilherme Rambo, and one notable inclusion is a mention of the “Series 6,” which is an Apple Watch that does not yet exist.

Bloomberg earlier today said that the September 15 event will not be focused on the iPhone as most September events are, with Apple instead planning to unveil new ‌Apple Watch‌ and iPad models. A separate event for the iPhone 12 is expected later in the fall, likely in October.

The specific mention of the Series 6 ‌Apple Watch‌ lends credibility to Bloomberg‘s claim, and seemingly confirms we can expect to see new ‌Apple Watch‌ models.

The metadata has a whole list of other keywords for existing products, including Apple,

September 15 event is for ‘Apple Watch Series 6,’ not ‘iPhone 12,’ report claims

A new series of reports claim that Apple’s September 15 event is for the “Apple Watch Series 6,” and that the “iPhone 12” won’t be announced until October.

Following Apple’s announcement of a September 15 event, a new claim says that it is to exclusively feature the unveiling of the new “Apple Watch Series 6.” While Apple’s September events usually feature both a new Apple Watch and a new iPhone, the claim is that the “iPhone 12” announcement is delayed to October.

According to Bloomberg, Apple’s “Time Flies” invitation is a direct reference to the new “Apple Watch Series 6.” The report also notes that the event will again be solely an online one.

It was already expected that Apple would move the release of its “iPhone 12” range to October, but not the announcement. Until this report, it had been believed that there would be a launch event

Wait for PS5 and Xbox Series X or buy a gaming PC?

The Razer Kraken Ultimate sits on a desk in front of a PC, monitor, mouse, and keyboard, next to an Xbox One controller in front of a Han Solo doll.

The console wars are about to begin anew with the release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Before the endless chatter comparing every little spec begins, we’ve decided to pit the consoles against their ever-present rival. No, not the Nintendo Switch, we’re talking about the venerable PC.

The hardware and even the design of both Sony and Microsoft’s ninth-generation consoles are becoming more and more PC-like than ever before. It begs the question: should you wait for the new consoles, or is buying a gaming PC now the smarter decision?

For such a heated topic, we thought it best to present two arguments from each side of the PC/console divide. In one corner, we have the MOBA-loving, PC-building enthusiast Suzana. In the other, there’s Ollie — a career console apologist who would take a gamepad over WASD any day of the week.
