While we’ve seen Apple host three events in as many months this fall, it appears the Cupertino firm may have one more announcement to come in 2020.
An internal Apple memo, shared by MacRumors, who says it’s from a reliable source, shows Apple telling service providers that it has AppleCare-related changes planned for Tuesday, December 8 at approximately 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time. Specifically, the memo tells providers to prepare for new product SKUs, new/updated product descriptions, and new/updated product pricing.
Apple has issues memos like the one above ahead of several previous product announcements. A similar memo went out this fall, shortly after Apple unveiled the iPhone 12, when Apple advised technicians to prepare for the same AppleCare-related changes on October 13 at approximately 10 a.m. Pacific Time, which is when the event began.
True, Apple is unlikely to hold an event at 5:30 a.m. Pacific, the time is a common time for Apple’s press releases when introducing new products that debut without an accompanying event. Early morning releases have announced the new 13-inch MacBook Pro in May 2020, the 16-inch MacBook Pro in November 2019, and second-generation AirPods in March 2019.
We’ve seen rumors about Apple’s AirTags, AirPods-branded over-ear headphones, and a new Apple TV with a gaming controller, but no one knows if any of these are ready to launch.
Anyway, we’ll be keeping an eye out for a potential announcement next Tuesday at 5:30 a.m. Pacific Time. You’ll know when we know.
