Apple to Debut New iPhones, iPads, and Apple TV on September 9

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. According to sources that spoke to BuzzFeed, the event will be held during the week of September 7, with September 9 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 September 9, pre-orders, if available, are likely to kick off on Friday, September 11. The two devices are then likely to officially launch later in the month, perhaps on September 18. iPads and the Apple TV will probably launch during the same time frame.

I'm not into S models so I'll be waiting for the iPhone 7. Looks like I'll be skipping this keynote.

Why does anyone else need to know this info?

Here's what's gonna happen:

September
iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus information.
HomeKit presentation with additional capabilities & hardware.
Apple Pay supporting more banks, merchants, Canada, Australia, and of course, rewards cards.
Apple Watch 2 preview with release in "early 2016".
iOS 9 review.
Watch OS 2 review.

October
iPad Air & Mini refresh.
MacBook Pro & MacBook refresh.
iMac refresh.
iPad Pro (or similar name).
Mac OS 10.11 review.


Anyone who is expecting something mind blowing will be let down. There isn't enough of a profit & demand aspect for the iTV or whatever Apple would call it. Think about it for a second - if Apple were to make a TV do you think it'd have a crappy display? Absolutely not. The TV would probably have a 4K or 8K resolution, be made out of premium materials, perhaps have a curved screen, and would have Apple's software built into it (perhaps some kind of TV streaming service). A TV with all of those features would cost north of $20,000 to buy. Low demand, and low margin isn't Apple's game.

No one is thinking Apple is making an actual television at this point…
