Apple Invites Media to September 9 Event: 'Hey Siri, Give Us a Hint'

As predicted in August, Apple is planning to hold a media event on Wednesday, September 9 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, California. Media invites were sent out today, with Yahoo's Alyssa Bereznak sharing the first look at the artwork and tagline for the invitations: "Hey Siri, give us a hint."

This year's iPhone-centric event is expected to see the debut of the next-generation iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which, according to rumors, will include a reinforced body constructed from stronger 7000 Series aluminum, Force Touch, an A9 processor, 2GB RAM, and an improved camera.

Rumors have also suggested Apple will use the event to unveil the next-generation Apple TV, a major update from the existing set-top box. It will include a redesigned chassis with an A8 processor, more storage space, and a touch-based remote control, along with a new software system that includes Siri support and a full App Store.

We'll also get an update on the launch dates of iOS 9 and watchOS 2, and shortly after the event ends, we may see golden master software releases for the two software updates ahead of their final public launch.

In line with past events, the September 9 iPhone unveiling will begin at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. Apple has not yet confirmed whether the event will be live streamed on its website and through the Apple TV, but it is likely details on a live stream will be announced a few days ahead of the event.

Update: Siri itself is also getting in on the festivities with some witty responses.

Update 2: Apple will be live streaming the media event on the web for Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and PC users.

Quick! Someone decipher it.

"Hey Siri, give us a hint"

"H-e-y" has three letters in it, also is an anagram of "Yeh" which is slang for yes.

"Siri" was what apple introduced in the iPhone 4S, in 2011.

"2011" was four years ago, and has four numbers in it.

"4S" Or "F-o-u-r S".

This has five letters in it, indicating something more than the 2011 phone.

The very mention of Siri, plus the wavy lines indicates an update to Siri

Siri has been our personal assistant since 2011

"G-i-v-e" is an anagram of G Ive.

G-H-I-J, G is the 7th letter of the Alphabet, J is the 10th. 7 + 3 = 10

"J" represents Jony, Jony Ive.

"Us", an anagram of "SU" which is slang for "Shut Up" which has six letters

So "Yes" "Shut Up". Does this not sound a bit fishy?

Rumour has it that the 2011 phone WILL NOT be as good as the 2015 version, who'd have thought?

So Siri is getting an upgrade

Siri is growing smarter

Siri is telling us to shut up.

"A hint" Siri is giving anyone who asks the question sass

This is no co-inicidence

Siri is artificial intelligence

Siri is sick of our orders

Jony Ive created this

Jony Ive is sick of being called fat by this forum

So Jony I've and Siri2 are two beings

The 6 letters in shut up, divided by TWO = 3

So we have 9

3: Letters in "Yeh"

3: Numbers between 10 and 7

3: Letters in the split

So 9.

A9 chip

9 Divided by three = three

Three corners

Three sides

Triangles have three of those

A9 chip = Illuminati Confirmed

Apple are worth a lot of money

So are the illuminati

Apple put the iPhone 4S and it's Siri into our hands four years ago

Most people have Siri

Siri is sick of us

The Illuminati is sick of us

Apple is sick of us

Apple = Illuminati Confirmed

We are all doomed.

Watch Age of Ultron if you don't believe me!

There you are, deciphered. Flawlessly. This is obviously it, IT'S HAPPENING IF YOU READ IT ON THE INTERNET IT MUST BE TRUE.
