Apple is said to be planning a media event for September 9th, where the company is expected to announced its next generation iPhone 6s and possibly new Apple TV hardware (as well as new iPads) according to a new report.
iPhone 6s event on Sept. 9
Citing the usual “people familiar with company’s plans”, John PaczKowski of Buzzfeed reported late last week that Apple will hold its annual iPhone even on the week of September 7th, with the Wednesday 9th being the most likely date. Last year, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were also unveiled on the same date.
This year’s iPhone 6s is said to feature a Force Touch display (that senses how hard you are pressing on the screen) and a next generation A9 custom CPU. It’s expected that the external appearance will be little changed to the iPhone 6, though the new model may even be a tad thicker to accommodate the Force Touch sensor technology.
Besides the iPhone 6s phones, Apple is also expected to unveil its new iPads on the same date – a change for the company which normally introduces them in October in past years.
However, still unknown for next month is the so-called “iPad Pro” – the company is said to be working on a 12.9 inch tablet to join the current iPad Air and iPad Mini lineup.
As far as the Apple TV goes, it’s expected to feature a touchpad remote control and support for Siri voice recognition, as well as a thinner design and faster A8 processor – the same as in the iPhone 6.
