Apple may also release an update to Apple TV, which serves as a gateway for streaming online video content from iTunes, Netflix, HBO and other providers.
The Cupertino-based company sent out an invite to press, pictured below, that features the tagline, “Hey Siri, give us a hint”.
Questions about the event arose after passersby spotted intense security outside the Civic Center building – but found little details about its host.
The company even started sending invitations to some media where it is expected to launch the new iPhones along with a new iteration of Apple TV set-top box.
Users have tried milking Siri of information about the event.
Further additions set to be bestowed on the expected Samsung Galaxy S6 andLG G4 rival include an Apple Watch-echoing Force Touch display and a new, pink color scheme. Just say, “Hey Siri, give us a hint!”.
Additionally, 9to5Mac said – again citing sources – that the iPhone 5C, a cheaper and less popular version of Apple’s blockbuster smartphone, will be discontinued. Also, judging by the inclusion of Siri in the invite, expect some fresh upgrades to the digital assistant. It is expected that the new iPhones will come with Force Touch technology. The interesting thing is that it’s a much larger venue than normally used for the annual iPhone events – the Yerba Buena Centre holds nearly 1,500 people while the Flint Centre can hold 2,400 visitors.
The news of the launch of new version of iPhone 6 has fascinated the journalists.
On the Apple Events page, the company reveals the steam will be available on PCs with the Microsoft Edge browser as well as the usual array of Apple devices.
