The news: As part of a number of Black History Month initiatives, including highlights across Apple Music, News, TV+ and more, Apple also unveiled the first limited edition Apple Watch variant.
The Black History Month Apple Watch Series 6 appears to be a modified version of the Space Gray Aluminum Case model
Etched into the back of the limited edition watch is “Black Unity” with the accompanying Black Unity Sport Band featuring “Truth. Power. Solidarity.” laser-engraved on the closure
Apple Watch Series 6 Black Unity launches on February 1, and will only be available for purchase until the end of the month
Our take: In a video just a few weeks back, I just mentioned how cool it would be for Apple to acknowledge a social cause meaningful to them via a special edition product in the US. And here it is. To learn more about Apple’s 2021 initiatives for Black History Month, click here.
The rumor: The iPhone 12, Apple Watch Series 6 and AirTags will be unveiled at an online Apple event in October, according to Macotakara (67.4%% accurate).
Macotakara says this info comes from the supply chain
Jon Prosser (77.8% accurate) believes the Apple Watch Series 6 is coming in September
AirTags were reportedly set to debut last March alongside the iPhone SE (2020)
Our take: I think Macotakara is off on this one…at least for the Apple Watch Series 6. Stock is really low on Apple’s website currently, but it is very plausible that Apple waits to unveil AirTags until October (on stage at a proper event).
