As expected Apple sent out invites for a September 9th event that will likely feature the new iPhone 6 and a smartwatch. Rumors of a new larger iPad will likely come out in a later October event just for the iPad. Apple is expected to pack the iPhone 6 with a larger screen, NFC, an all aluminum design, better Touch ID, and all Saphire screen.
The invitation, which says “wish we could say more,” revealed that the “exclusive event” will be held on Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. PT. It will be held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California, which is Apple’s hometown and just two miles from its headquarters.
We’ll likely see iOS 8 get a release date for everyone who won’t want to upgrade their older iPhone’s to the latest and greatest thing. While many tech experts are expecting iPhone 6 sales to go through the roof, many consumers are still locked into 2 year contracts that won’t expire for another year or year in a half.
I’m unsure if an iWatch will grace the stage on Sept. 9 because there has been a lack of leaks, but then again Apple can be secretive when it wants to. Many believe the iWatch will come because Apple’s Healthkit needs some wearable to take advantage of the app and api’s. We all know in the coming weeks we’ll be handing Apple hundreds of dollars to buy the latest and greatest things they release no matter what happens.
Tell us in the comments below what you think about the iPhone 6 and what else we could see in September.
