Apple confirms September 9 launch event for new iPhones
Apple has confirmed it will be holding a launch event on September 9 to launch the new iPhone and possibly a new wearable device.
Invitations were sent out to media and have a close up of the top of the Apple logo with 9.9.2014 and the words: “Wish we could say more”.
The event will be held at 10am at the Flint Centre for the Performing Arts on the campus of the De Anza College in Cupertino – not far from Apple headquarters.
The site is actually where Apple unveiled the original Mac 30 years ago so that indicates this year’s event promises to be a major one.
We’re expecting to see two new iPhones –4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions – that will be thinner and with an all-new design.
There are also reports the devices will have NFC (near field communication) onboard to allow easy pairing and content sharing.
But there is also a real possibility Apple will be unveiling the highly anticipated iWatch which has been the subject of rumours for more than a year.
Apple is yet to announce if there will be a live stream of the September 9 event (September 10 at 3am Sydney time) over the web or on Apple TV.
Tech Guide will be in Cupertino for the Apple event and will be providing complete coverage of all the announcements.
