Apple Inc. said it will hold an online event Sept. 15, where the company is expected to unveil its latest Apple Watch. The event will be streamed from the company’s website starting at 10 a.m. Pacific Time.
The technology giant usually organizes a slick hardware-focused show every fall from its Cupertino, California-based headquarters or another location in Silicon Valley. This event will be only online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. That follows Apple’s developers conference in June, which worked well as a virtual event.


The event announcement on Apple’s website doesn’t have its typical tag line that hints at what is to be announced. But the invitation to media says “Time Flies,” indicating the announcement is related to the Apple Watch, not iPhones. The new iPhones won’t launch until October, Bloomberg News has reported.

The company is preparing new high-end and low-end Apple Watches as well as a redesigned iPad Air with an edge-to-edge screen. It’s also working on a smaller HomePod and the first pair of Apple-branded over ear headphones for release as early as later this year.

The new iPhones, coming later, will have redesigned cases, updated cameras, and 5G capabilities. Apple also plans to announce the first Mac running its own processors, replacing Intel Corp., before the end of the year. The next updates to iPhone and iPad software are due to be released this month, with Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac software updates coming in the fall.

The company’s shares have surged this year on rising demand of iPhones, iPads and other tech gear needed to work and study from home during the pandemic.

It’s also facing increased antitrust scrutiny and complaints from App Store developers including Epic Games.

A large number of users had raised issues with iOS 13 because the apps were apparently refreshing on their own which lead to users losing data. iPhones were automatically refreshing the apps which were previously accessed, a problem which users didn’t face with the previous versions of iOS.

“I was watching a video on YouTube [sic] on my iPhone 11 Pro I pause the video to respond to a text message. I was in iMessage for less than one minute. When I returned to YouTube it reloaded the app and I lost the video I was watching,” stated one of the forum members called Rogifan

After iOS 13.3 release, one of the beta testers took to Twitter to share that Apple had reportedly fixed the issue. He said that he had 32 apps open on his iPhone 11 Pro Max and none of them refreshed.

iOS 13.3 comes with a new feature called ‘Communication Limits’. The iPhone will now have an app called Screen Time which allows users to limit texting, calling and FaceTime for their children.

iOS 13.3 also comes with another minor update. It allows users to control when they want to see Memojis and Animojis.

In Settings > General > Keyboard, you can now turn off Animoji and Memoji Stickers from being displayed on the emoji keyboard.

For the uninitiated, Animojis are 3D, animated emojis that transform familiar emojis to animated messages. Memojis, on the other hand, are personalised Animojis, akin to Snapchat’s Bitomji, that look exactly like the user.
