Apple’s annual fall iPhone event will likely be held on Wednesday, 9 September, reports BuzzFeed‘s John Paczkowski, who has provided reliable information on event dates in the past. According to sources that spoke to BuzzFeed, the event will be held during the week of 7 September, with 9 September targeted as the most likely date.
The event’s focus will be on the next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, both of which will feature a Force Touch display, an A9 processor, an improved camera system, and a faster LTE chip, among other features. Apple may also unveil new iPads at the event, but the 12.9-inch iPad Pro “seems to be a wildcard,” says Paczkowski, meaning it could come at the event or at a later date.
In addition to the iPhone and iPad, Apple is also expected to unveil the next-generation Apple TV. The Apple TV will be a huge update over its predecessor, featuring an updated A8 processor, a full App Store, a touch-based remote control, and Siri integration. It will, of course, include an entirely revamped body as well.
With Apple unveiling the new iPhones on 9 September, pre-orders, if available, are likely to kick off on Friday, 11 September. The two devices are then likely to officially launch later in the month, perhaps on 18 September. iPads and the Apple TV will probably launch during the same time frame.
The new iPhone will likely reach South Africa during October 2015
