Apple has just sent out the press invitations for the special iPhone 6 event, and as has been suspected for a number of weeks now, it will fall on September 9th. Of course, we don’t yet know precisely what the tech giant has up its sleeve, but with the showcasing having now been confirmed, we won’t have to wait too much longer for the big reveal.
If you’ve been following our coverage for the last couple of months here at Redmond Pie, then you’ll have a pretty good idea of what we’re expecting. Apple has apparently been working on not one, but two new handsets, both of which will be decidedly larger than the current flagship iPhone 5s.
Alongside the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 model, we anticipate that Apple will announce a 5.5-inch variant, rumored to be called the iPhone Air or iPhone 6L. The naming is fairly irrelevant though, for the Mac maker will finally be taking the plunge and offering displays that compete with every other top-end smartphone out there, and while the sheer size of the iPhone 6 line-up will likely be the main talking point, there’s plenty more for us geeks to get excited about besides.
From the introduction of NFC to the dual-core A8 processor apparently clocked at over 2.0 GHz per core, Apple has apparently been putting in a lot of work under the hood as well as aesthetically, and given the touted iPod touch / iPad Air-like exterior, the iPhone 6 should appease those on both sides of the fence.
Apart from the iPhone 6 and 6L, we’re also expecting Apple to announce the iWatch.
We’ve been waiting on the iPhone 6′s announcement for what seems like forever, but on September 9th, Tim Cook, Eddy Cue et al will take to the stage at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino and reveal to the world what the company has in store.
On the day, we’ll be closely monitoring the keynote, providing regular reports on the announcements made and helping you to digest what will likely be a very, very busy sequence of events. Given the sheer number of leaks and reports hitherto, we’ve a general idea of what to expect, but nevertheless, there’s a good chance that surprises will also be abundant.
On an ending note, can someone decipher what the ‘Wish we could say more.’ tagline means? Let’s discuss!
