Apple event 2020 unveiled interesting products but turned into a meme on social media because of iPhone 12's absence

Apple held an online event recently at the company’s headquarter in Cupertino, California, and launched several new products, including iPads, smartwatches, and subscription services. However, there was no mention of the much-awaited and highly anticipated iPhone 12, and that disappointed Apple customers all over the world. But people quickly turned their disappointment into humor as Tweets about the absence of the latest iPhone started rolling out one after another.

The tweets were full of funny Gifs and memes, targeting everyone who was waiting for the launch of the iPhone 12 through this event and ended up seeing everything else but the much-coveted iPhone.

However, it is not so surprising or difficult to understand why the iPhones were missing from the launch event. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Apple's supply chain faced massive disruptions and that is the main reason behind the delay in the launch of the iPhone 12.

The other interesting products that were launched in this online event include the new Watch Series 6, which will run the latest operating system, watchOS7. The series comes with improved tools for customization and brings an array of health and fitness features.

This new smartwatch can measure oxygen levels in the blood within 15 seconds, and Apple is very excited to use this technology to conduct three health studies with other researchers. They are aiming to find ways to use blood-oxygen levels for monitoring the health of individuals in a new Health App. Apple is also collaborating with the government of Singapore for its personalized health program, LumiHealth. The company aims to use this program to encourage a healthy lifestyle using Apple Smartwatch.

This new smartwatch also allows sleep tracking, better parental controls, an automatic hand-wash detection technology, and an improved battery life

The star of this event was the eighth generation iPad which features an A12 Bionic chip processor. It uses advanced machine learning technology and incorporates Artificial Intelligence.

According to Apple, the A12 Bionic chip delivers a 40% faster processor with twice the graphics capability. So, this new iPad is twice faster than the latest Windows laptop, thrice faster than the latest Android tablet, and almost six times faster than the latest Chromebook.

For premium customers, Apple launched a new iPad Air also, which comes with an A14 bionic chip and an integrated touch ID sensor.

In this event, Apple also launched the Fitness+ service, which is a fitness experience built for Apple Watch and incorporates metrics from Apple Watch that can be viewed on users’ Apple products like iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. This feature will allow health enthusiasts to access gym-like workouts with the help of excellent and renowned trainers.

Apple also launched an easy subscription plan called Apple One, through which all other Apple subscription services can be collected in a single, simple plan including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, iCloud, and Apple Arcade.

It is still not known when the iPhones will be launched though, meanwhile, enjoy how users are reacting on social media:
