Apple’s rumoured September 9th iPhone launch event has been confirmed through invites sent out to the media. The event will be held at a different venue this time, than the usual one – Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco which has a capacity to hold 7,000 people so you can expect that this even will be huge!
The event will being at 10 a.m. PDT and will be live streamed by Apple. It is expected that Apple will have the following announcements to make on 9th September:
- New iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus launch. The new phones will be much faster, have vastly improved cameras (4K video recording and higher megapixel count), Force Touch, improved graphics amongst other features. New motion wallpapers, inspired from WatchOS 2, are also rumoured to be one of the features of new iPhones.
- New Apple TV with a development SDK, App Store, Siri, new remote and more
- iOS 9 final release
- OS X 10.11 final release
- WatchOS 2 final release
The biggest update has to be that of the Apple TV as it has not been given a major upgrade since many years. It will be interesting to see what tricks Apple has up its sleeve considering the fact that there is a lot of competition and alternatives in the market, ever since Apple TV was first introduced. Apple would have to 1up Smart TVs, Chromecast, Android TVs, Roku, Xbox One and the likes to convince users to upgrade.
We will keep you updated with the latest happenings at Apple’s event.
P.S. ask Siri on your iPhone or iPad: “Hey Siri, give us a hint.” for a bit of fun!
