The company also sent out email invitations to press with slightly more specific copy: "Please join us for a special Apple Event from Apple Park. Watch it online at apple.com." Additionally, it carries the tagline "Time Flies." The event time is 10am PDT on Tuesday, September 15—one week from today.
I’m in the camp who believes there often aren’t any noteworthy clues in the logos or event names for Apple events, but you don’t have be a genius to guess that “Time Flies” implies that Apple Watch is the headliner at next week’s event, which, in turn, means that there will be no iPhones announced.
