Apple just sent out press invitations to its annual iPhone event, to no one’s surprise. The date: Sept. 9. Time: 10 a.m. Pacific. Location (Thursday, 10 September 2015 at 3:00:00 AM EST): The spacious Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

Cupertino continues its tradition of teasing what’s to come in its event invites, this time with the tagline, “Hey Siri, give us a hint.”

As usual, the phrasing is coy and vague, but based on Apple events of yore, we know a few things: There will be new iPhones, and we will see final updates to iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, which will be released in the spring.

What else is on deck? There are rumors that the Apple TV will finally, at long last, get an overhaul, both in looks and software. The set-top box may run a version of iOS 9 that supports TV apps and Siri, which would be a game-changer. The device may also get a new touchpad remote control. We expected Apple TV news at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June, but the hold-up, or so we hear, is a streaming TV bundle that Cupertino would love to launch alongside new hardware. There’s a mess of details still to be worked out, but Apple just might for it anyway.

We tried asking Siri about the event, but she’s in rare form today.

Try asking Siri for a hint, and see what she tells you.

 

Macworld will be front row (or as close to the front as we can get) to live-blog the event and give you the Apple scoop on the ground, so be here Sept. 9 at 10 a.m. Pacific. You won’t want to miss it. You can also follow along with Apple’s live-stream of the event here.

    If Siri could reliably understand what I say then I could test this, but in order to test it I have to put on a bad American accent.

    Come on Apple, Google’s voice recognition is almost flawless for me – why isn’t yours? How about you spend some of those billions of dollars actually improving a service and fixing it rather than continually releasing mediocre products. My iPhone 6 is the worst phone I’ve ever owned, the touch screen is laughably inaccurate and lets not even start on the poor finger print recognition and instability of iOS.

    Siri mentioned a hint of lime. I would love a lime coloured iPhone. Or a rose gold and black phone.

    If I get this right do I get a prize? Siri says look deep within yourself…. So I think it’s access to your health data (eg pulse etc) via Siri. So you’re out for a run and just click your Apple watch, asking “Hey Siri, what’s my pulse?” I just tried it on my iPhone and got an intriguing answer – better than the ones in the screenshots here. Give it a try!

    “Hey Siri what’s my pulse?”
    “Rob, I can’t tell you your heart rate. At least not yet…”
