It's been expected that Google would hold an event in early October, possibly around Oct. 4, to announce new products that include the third-generation Pixel phones, a Pixel smartwatch, and a new Pixelbook.

On Monday, Bloomberg detailed what its sources have said will be announced by Apple next month. Three iPhones, revamped iPad Pros, and a redesigned Apple Watch (amongst other things) are expected, per the report.
