Apple will launch new products during a streamed event from its Cupertino, California, campus on Tuesday. Apple’s product launch event starts at 1 p.m. ET and CNBC will be providing live updates here as news breaks.
Apple usually releases new products in the fall on an annual schedule ahead of an important holiday sales season. But this year is different. Amid a pandemic that has disrupted manufacturing and affected economies around the world, Apple’s event is virtual, instead of an in-person live showcase with press and guests in attendance.
So far, Apple has announced the Apple Watch Series 6, the Apple Watch SE, the new 8th-generation iPad, Fitness+ workout services and new Apple One service bundles.
Apple is not expected to announce new iPhones on Tuesday. Instead, Apple could save that reveal for a future product launch.
