Target is apparently working on promoting sales of Apple’s “iPhone 12” and “Apple Watch Series 6,” with an incomplete image of a circular showing the retailer is seemingly prepared for Tuesday’s launch event.
In an image sent to AppleInsider that allegedly depicts a flyer for Target, the retailer has included a combination of elements that it knows about, as well as for products yet to be announced. It is claimed the image was left unaltered in Target’s latest circular distribution by mistake.
The main thrust of the promotion is for the iPhone 11, which will include a $100 gift card with qualified activations, though it is possible that it may have been intended to be replaced by the “iPhone 12”
At the bottom left of the section is a pair of images depicting the Apple Watch Series 5, but they are placeholder images for what is said to be the “Apple Watch Series 6.” While pricing isn’t listed properly, aside from the $99.99 suffix for each, it is assumed in the marketing page that it will be offered in GPS and GPS + Cellular varieties.
In the opposing bottom corner are a collection of OtterBox smartphone cases, again with an incomplete price tag. A covering text box mentions how the images are placeholder and are awaiting new images post-launch to be inserted into the document, including OtterBox cases and screen protectors.
Presumably, this is intended for accessories meant for the “iPhone 12.”
The imagery may have been published earlier than intended. Text mentions the “final page” was provided on September 9, the Wednesday after Apple announced its “Time Flies” event was taking place on September 15. It is likely that whomever created the page anticipated product launches, rather than an announcement, on September 8.
