Apple’s annual fall iPhone event will likely be held on Wednesday, September 9, reports BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowski, who has provided reliable information on event dates in the past. It is expected that Apple may unleash its latest iPad, rumored to be called iPad Pro, which will feature a 12.9-inch display.
It is not exactly clear why Apple would want to delay iPhone 6S manufacturing when the release date is fast approaching. Reuters quoted Apple saying it’s not in talks to launch a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) service in the United States and in Europe.
Sources told Buzzfeed News that Apple is thinking of hosting an event for the second week of September. However, earlier reports seemed to suggest that Apple had already started producing the new iPhone.
And, they added, Apple will debut the long-awaited successor to Apple TV.
Alongside the iPhone and iPad, we may finally see an update to the Apple TV. We’re expecting an incremental increase to a 6S which is the way Apple has been updating its previous generations for some time now. It’s expected to feature the same design, although some rumours claim that there will be a “rose gold” model (below), and looks set to launch in the same 4.7in and 5.5in versions.
Although the press release from Toshiba indicated that the new flash memory will be used on mobile devices, it did not mention if it will come with the iPhone 7. While it continues to sell millions of phones, the overall mobile market has slowed, raising worries that not even Apple is immune to the lackluster demand.
Apple’s streaming-video box has gone three years without a refresh to a new generation, all while Internet-delivered TV has grown bigger and more accessible than ever. In addition, the expectation is that the exceptional features that Apple provides with its iPhone’s Camera like backside illumination sensor, improved aperture, 1080p HD video recording, etc. can also be upgraded for the good.
