    A blank sky could mean "nothing new here, keep moving along" or we don't know what we are going to do that day so no specifics allows anything or nothing to happen....
    Lol.

    I genuinely love everyone trying to read the tea leaves of the announcements. There are so many creative ideas, and they're almost always wrong lol, and it turns out to be just a vague reference to product colors or something. However, this one actually seems like a more specific reference, and probably referencing the rumored emergency satellite service. I wonder if they'll include the watch in this.

    The centre of Apple's promotional images seem to be centered on "the sky," which suggests to me that the rumoured satellite communications is being hinted at here.
    And/or the rumored astrophotography capable camera upgrades. Either way, portrait mode video is definitely hinted at, imo. 
    There were astrophotography camera rumors? Cool. I really hope Apple creates their own minimalist, mirrorless camera, or teams up with a camera company to do it; the combination of a large sensor with Apple's processing power would be amazing.

    I cannot believe I am the first one to type that it is about the Apple Car.  

    The image is clearly headlights from a car projecting out into a winters backdrop, as in the California Dreaming song alludes.

    Whether that’s the case or not, all cylinders are firing at Apple.  Should be an interesting autumn to watch the company drive even farther ahead of its competition.

    Hmm, I wonder if is Apple going to re-release Maps as an AR virtual world where you can 'stream' yourself walking around in California (or the other major areas that Apple has mapped out). It'd be cool to 'walk up' to Big Ben in London virtually and see the clock turn in real time, or 'walk around' the acropolis in Athens fully reconstructed, or 'walk around' San Francisco and see people crapping on the street!

    I’d be auto-ly delighted if this were really the case.

    Yup. There are lots of rumors about this one out there. One or more Android phones already support it, so Apple will be playing catch up, if true. It will be done computationally on the new model using whatever new camera lenses they upgrade to, though. It won’t be a separate, minimalist camera.

    What national park is in the background?

    Is this made with reality composer?. Does anyone know another desktop-based tool to make these AR environments?
    It’s a video, not an AR environment. You can create this in any number of 2D or 3D apps or combinations thereof. 

    EDIT: If you mean the iPhone AR feature on Apple.com, that’s probably Reality Composer. Adobe Aero is another but I’d think they’d use their own stuff. I hadn’t seen it until just now, for some reason it doesn’t work on iPad, just iPhone.

    There's a little satellite moving across the sky towards the end of the video.
    I see stars moving… no satellite.

    The official invite artwork is for the Apple AR and VR headset. The animation is like putting on the headset and entering a new world. Developers get early, public by Christmas.

    Honestly this is a good take but I feel like it’s too soon for an HMD. I’d love to be pleasantly surprised though!

    The AR feature on Apple’s page is kinda cool; you can I’ve into the Apple with your iPhone to reveal the date. It does remind me a little of going into VR.

    You're all on the wrong track. The clear indication is that Apple are announcing their new Space based initiative. The mothership is finally going to fly.

    That's why they want everyone to return to the office. So they're all on board at lift-off.

    I am hoping for a M1 27” iMac.

    The translucent Apple logo and the animation inside the AR object that you get (via the official announcement on the Apple homepage) could indicate dedicated AR announcements. Very curious.

    I was just watching Wong Kar Wai's Chunking Express the other day. California Dreamin' by The Mammas and Pappas is an integral part of that film.

    :D just a dumb idea

    if it's not about iPhone/iPad (camera, AR/VR, satcom), what else can it be (assuming there's a hint) on an iOS event? also why is it too soon for an HMD? Apple Glasses (AR/VR headset) is rumored since like forever now (and I'm sure there were at least 10 articles about this coming in '21). there are some (meh) attempts that are available for the consumers since a while. they could destroy the market at this point like the first iPhone did (taking in-house chips into account, maybe even more). it's true though they could also come up with these next year or the year after with the same result :D

    It's very much possible the the teaser thingy means nothing specific at all regarding products. That's usually the case.

    I was saying too soon because the most credible rumors have pointed to next year at the earliest for an HMD, and we haven't had any solid (IMHO) rumors to the contrary, nor have we seen any parts leaks or anything else. It's entirely possible they somehow avoided all that and secretly got this product fully developed, or enough to announce the tech and dev kit etc, but that sounds way more like a WWDC thing to me. Whereas everything else we're expecting in the next couple months has been solidly rumored to be coming for a while now (iPads, Macs, AirPods) if it wasn't a no brainer (iPhone, Watch). 

    Jon Prosser has some kind of reveal coming this morning, and the giant 8 graphic which he says was intentional ... could it be that rotated it looks like glasses? Who knows. 


    I'd be happy to be proven wrong!
