Ahead of Apple’s ‘Time Flies’ event, leaker, Evan Blass has shared some key details about the products that Apple is expected to announce at the event.
The leaker claims that the 4th gen iPad will be powered by Apple’s A14 chip and feature USB-C port. He does not mention anything about the design but other reports indicate the upcoming iPad Air refresh is going to come with an iPad Pro-like design. As for the eighth-generation iPad refresh, Evan says it will come with an A12X chip and Lightning connector. The upgrade to an A12X chip should lead to the new eighth-generation iPad offering a massive performance boost over the sixth and seventh-generation iPad, both of which use the A10X Fusion chip.
For the Apple Watch Series 6, Blass claims it will continue to come with an S4 chip which is a bit surprising. Apple has used the same S4 chip inside the Apple Watch for two years in a row and it would be an odd move for the company to use it for another year without any improvements. The wearable will be available in two sizes with the usual Wi-Fi and GPS variants. The low-cost Apple Watch SE is also going to be available in two sizes and in two different connectivity options.
