Apple sent out invitations overnight to the press for an event 9 September, confirming persistent rumours that the company would continue what has become an annual spring industry rite and setting off a new round of speculation that it will announce the iPhone 6.
The invitation itself provides no hint about possible new products, following another Apple tradition of keeping such news under wraps until the event, which is set for 10 am local time at the Flint Center for Performing Arts at De Anza College in Cupertino, California.
The event will kick off at 3am AEST on 10 September for those in Australia.
“Wish we could say more,” the invitation says.
Rumours have been making the rounds for sometime that Apple will announce an iPhone with a larger 5.5in screen. At an event around the same time last year, Apple launched the iPhone 5S, which made waves as the first iPhone with a 64-bit processor.
In addition to a faster processor, any new iPhone will probably have a stronger screen made of durable material called ‘Sapphire.’
There are also been reports circulating that Apple will launch a wearable device, possibly the long-rumoured iWatch. New iPads may also be part of the event.
