Apple has sent out press invitations to an event on September 9, 2014. The invite, shown above courtesy of Wall Street Journal, is simple and cryptic, stating simply “Wish we could say more” and displaying the date “9.9.2014”.
The iPhone 6 is expected to be the star of the show, being offered in two sizes with 4.7″ and 5.5″ displays. A recent report suggested that Apple will unveil the wearable device commonly called iWatch at the 9/9 event as well. Both devices are said to make use of several new iOS 8 features, including HomeKit, a home automation suite, and HealthKit, a series of health tracking orientated features.
September 9 coincides with what Re/Code, Wall Street Journal, and Bloomberg reported several weeks ago as the launch date of iPhone 6. It’s probable that iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite will have public shipping dates announced at the event as well.
There are plenty of rumors surrounding the iPhone 6, but what’s most likely to be included with the new device is a new thinner redesigned enclosure, larger and more durable screens, an improved camera, and a faster A8 processor. Rumors surrounding the iWatch suggest it will monitor the wearers health and fitness activity, and perhaps augment other Apple services.
The September 9 event will be held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts, a large venue located at De Anza Community College, not far from the Cupertino campus of Apple Inc. The company has history at the venue, as the Flint Center is where Steve Jobs debuted the original Mac in 1984.
