Many wondered if Apple's press release would actually include details on the new line of iPhone 12 devices, as well as information on the next version of the Apple Watch.
But just hours later, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman – a trusted source of inside information from the tech giant – suggested that fans take a few deep breaths before raising their hopes.
"I wouldn't be too happy about rumors that new Apple products are showing up this week," Gurman wrote. "More likely, I think: An announcement of the upcoming (of course virtual) iPhone / Apple Watch event in September."
