Gurman: This Year’s iPhone/Apple Watch Event to Be Held Wednesday, September 7

Mark Gurman, reporting for Bloomberg:

As I reported last week, the company is planning to announce the iPhone 14 at an event on Sept. 7. It would be the earliest iPhone launch since 2016 and be followed by the new device going on sale Sept. 16 — about a week ahead of last year’s schedule.

The event will be on the Wednesday after Labor Day, an atypical day for Apple product launches. It signals that the company wanted to leave that Tuesday free. Why? Perhaps because press and other guests will need a travel day after the Monday holiday.

While Apple generally prefers Tuesdays for product introduction events, I don’t think Apple has ever held an event on the Tuesday after Labor Day.
