Finally, as expected, Apple has sent out invitations to media outlets for its September 9th iPhone event which was speculated last month. The event will be held at 10 am PST (10.30pm IST) at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California which was already rumored before it became official. The tagline which is Apple’s way of giving hint about every event, this year reads ‘Hey Siri, give us a hint’.
It is expected that apart from unveiling new iPhones which are most likely to called ‘iPhone 6s’ and ‘iPhone 6s Plus’, Apple might also update its Apple TV hardware. On the software side, iOS 9 is also widely expected to get some stage with its launch date, along with some update on El Capitan Operating System.
So here what we did, we tried to ask Siri to give us a hint, and this was the reply we got:
Seems like Apple told Siri not to reveal any information, but September 9 is not much far and we will surely get to know what Apple has for us in stores. Besides, we already know with the new iPhones coming, we can expect the Apple Watch’s Force Touch technology integrated in this year’s iPhones. The camera module is expected to get a big upgrade to 12-megapixel which may be capable of 4k video. On the body side, Apple is expected to make iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bendgate proof with a stronger chassis. 2GB of RAM with Apple’s in-house A9 processor is expected to improve the upcoming iPhones performance dramatically.
On the software end, iOS 9 which was released in June at WWDC and is still in beta state is also expected to get a launch date. As we reported earlier, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are rumored to launch on September 18th a week prior to when pre-order starts.
In regards to the event, Apple has also updated its homepage and made sure to live stream its event for those not invited. The streaming as expected will require an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch with Safari on iOS 7 or above. Apple TV owners of 2nd or a 3rd Gen with software 6.2 or above can also stream the event on their TVs. To be mentioned, for the first time Apple will also stream the event for PC users but only for people on Windows 10 running Edge browser.
