For months we’ve been tantalised by supposed leaked details and images of the iPhone 6, but finally it would appear that we’re just days away from finding out what Apple really has in store with the latest version, or versions, of its ever popular smartphone.
Yesterday Apple started sending out invitations to a big event on 9 September, and although it was teasingly cryptic with a tagline “wish we could say more”, it’s widely expected to be a launch of the latest iPhone, or iPhones.
According to hearsay, the new iPhone will come in two sizes: a 4.7 inch model and a larger 5.5 inch version. The other major improvement that we’re expecting to see is a sapphire-based display that will be more durable and reduce the risk of scratches and shattering.
Apple’s new software for iPhone and iPad, iOS 8 will also be launched alongside the new handsets.
There’s also much speculation that Apple will also use the 9 September event to launch the long awaited iWatch.
Many had already penciled in 9 September as the launch date for the new iPhone/s as Apple has chosen the same date to launch its new incarnations dating back to the release of the iPhone 4S. Less predictable was the choice of venue. This year’s event is to be held in the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, which is where Apple unveiled the first Mac personal computer in 1984. The significance of this combined with the fact that the Flint Centre is a much larger venue than is used for most launches leads many to believe that this is going to be a big occasion.
I guess we’ll have to wait until 9 September to find out… 11 days and counting!
Are you excited to see what Apple has up its sleeve for the 9 September launch?
