What is the grammatical construct that is used in this sentence?
Apple today announced a third fall 2020 event...
Usually, I see similar phrases written as "Today, Apple announced" or "Apple announced X today". In this case, I interpret the phrase as [pronoun] [adverb] [verb], where today is a verb modifier, but it is unclear if that is the case. The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language offers a different interpretation, according to which today can be interpreted as a pronoun, and then it becomes [pronoun] [pronoun] [verb], which is even more confusing.
What is the correct word order in this case and is there a general rule about it?
