Apple will hold an event on Sept. 9, likely for its new iPhone(s), and maybe even for the company’s rumored wearable, the iWatch.
The company sent out invites on Thursday with a sly headline: “Wish we could say more.” What does that mean? Apple is obviously excited about what’s in store, which could be a lot if the rumors are to be believed. Not only are we expecting a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6, but a recent report claimed we’d also see Apple’s long-awaited wearable, which is expected to focus mainly on health.
Regarding the iPhone 6, there’s definitely a lot to expect in addition to the larger display; we might see NFC, an all aluminum design, better Touch ID, synthetic sapphire and more sensors than ever before.
The iWatch, meanwhile, is expected to take advantage of Apple’s HealthKit platform, which was announced alongside iOS 8. We have seen zero leaks regarding what Apple’s wearable will actually look like, and the pressure will definitely be on for the company to deliver a worthy experience. With LG, Motorola, Samsung and others already in the wearable market, many people are counting on Apple to make the first real must-have wearable.
We’ll find out everything we need to know on Sept. 9.
