It looks like the Apple Watch 8 is joining the rumored iPhone 14 launch event on September 7.
According to Bloomberg (opens in new tab)’s Mark Gurman, Apple will be holding a virtual launch event on September 7 to unveil its next lineup of iPhones and Apple Watch devices. Apple’s Series 8 smartwatch lineup is expected to include a standard Apple Watch 8, an Apple Watch 8 Pro and the Apple Watch SE 2.
Based on Gurman’s reporting we may not wait long after the September Apple event to buy the latest Apple Watch models in stores. He said that some Apple Store retail employees have been told to prepare for a major new product release on September 16. It is unclear at this time if this refers specifically to the Apple Watch, though most signs point to the Apple Watch Series 8 being part of the company’s upcoming product release.
