We will have 3 Apple keynotes before the end of the year
After a week of rumors, Apple finally revealed the date of its September keynote yesterday. A month that has always been reserved for the iPhone, but it seems that this year it won’t be like that according to the latest information.
September’s keynote seems to be dedicated to Apple Watch and iPad Air. Many speculate that it may seem small for an event that usually lasts two hours, so perhaps Apple has some more surprises up its sleeve. Something like the AirPods Studio or the AirTags.
Therefore, it is clear that at least one other keynote is missing before the end of the year to reveal the iPhone 12. But it will not be the last, according to Mark Gurman, we will have a third keynote later.
Given no travel to Cupertino due to Covid, it makes sense for Apple to break up the events more than they normally would since it essentially just slicing up video. Perhaps we will see an Apple event Three-Peat: Sept (Watch / iPad), October (iPhone), November (Mac).

Three events before the end of the year
As we can see, what Gurman comments makes a lot of sense. By not having to schedule trips or send the press to Apple Park, Apple may hold more events relatively closely. Instead of programming a single long keynote, you can make three shorter ones.
Therefore, this is how the 3 keynotes that Apple will celebrate before the end of 2020 could be:
- September Keynote. Apple Watch and iPad. This keynote will be mainly focused on these two devices. We will almost certainly see the Apple Watch Series 6 and a new iPad Air 4 with the design of the iPad Pro. But we could also see other iPad models or the rumored Apple Watch SE. In addition to other accessories such as AirTags and AirPods Studio or with iOS 14.
- October Keynote. iPhone 12. This keynote will probably be held in early or mid-October and will focus exclusively on the 4 iPhone 12 models. Although it is true that Apple could complete this event with an accessory, such as AirTags and AirPods Studio if these have not been presented.
- November Keynote. Mac. This is an important keynote as Apple will introduce the first Macs with self-made Apple Silicon processors. It is an event that can be more technical than usual to explain all the news, and that can also be complemented with other news such as macOS Big Sur and an Apple TV.

There are still many surprises to be revealed, 2020 is being a very different year than usual and Apple has had to schedule its events very well due to the huge change in strategy. At least we will have more keynotes than ever.
