Apple tends to be incredibly secretive with upcoming events. However, the company’s typical esoteric front slipped for moment earlier today when it accidentally scheduled a livestream on its YouTube account for September 10th.
The slip-up was spotted by Twitter user ‘WeiRdCroissant.HODL,’ who shared a screenshot of it with The Verge’s Dieter Bohn. According to the Twitter user, the scheduled live stream showed up on their YouTube subscription page. They managed to grab a couple of screenshots before it was removed.

Currently, Apple’s YouTube channel doesn’t list any scheduled events.
While a slip like this might be par for the course for other companies, it’s proven an attention grabber for Apple followers. The California-based company is expected to launch new iPhones in the fall with support for 5G. Of course, Apple has also confirmed that it expects its 2020 phones to ship a few weeks later than usual. With all the unknowns surrounding the new iPhone lineup, it feels like Apple is keeping even more secrets than usual.
Still, with a September 10th event potentially on the way, it could mean we’ll learn all about the new iPhones in just a few weeks.
