APPLE HAS SENT out invitations to the press for a product launch event on 9 September.
The event will be held at the Flint Center in Cupertino, California at 10am local-time.
The famously secretive company offered scant clues in emailed invites that showed the date in large numbers over the words: “Wish we could say more.”
It doesn’t take a genius to guess that it’ll be for the new iPhone. But Apple might surprise us by debuting its new wearable computer, the so-called iWatch, as Re/code’s John Paczkowski reported yesterday.
What can you expect from the new iPhone? By now,the reports and rumors are too numerous and consistent to consider them to be anything but the truth. Apple will very likely introduce two new iPhones — one with a 12cm screen and one with a 14cm screen.
These are both larger than the current iPhone 5S which has screen just larger than 10cm. A new iOS8 system is also expected to be debuted along with the new phones.
The new design has leaked out several times. It’ll probably look something like this:
Last year, Apple also unveiled the iPhone 5S and the lower-priced iPhone 5C in a September launch, setting sales records in the process.
