Apple’s new iPhone event will take place on September 9


With the recent releases of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, the fall smartphone cycle has officially begun. And now we know when the next big device will be revealed.

Apple is sending invitations for an event that’ll take place at 10:00 am PT on September 9. The invite shows an Apple logo with colorful waves similar to what Siri uses on the Apple Watch and on iOS 9. That’s because the caption for the invite reads “Hey Siri, give us a hint.”

While it’s expected that the iPhone 6s will look similar to the iPhone 6, the device may have a strengthened body to combat another #Bendgate. The new iPhones are also expected to include Force Touch displays and beefier cameras, including a 12-megapixel rear camera with 4K video capture. Along with these new iPhone models, Apple may finally introduce an updated Apple TV set-top box at its September 9 event.

Are you interested in Apple’s new iPhone hardware?

    Yes! Might take the plunge to the 6S+ this time.

  • AntiApple

    Watch, they’re going to announce wireless charging or NFC AppleBeam and the fanboys will be like “OMG THAT’S GENIUS! APPLE IS SO INNOVATIVE!!!!!”

    • Adrayven

      I just figured attention grabbing morons would post about unicorns and fanboys.. well.. one down.. one to go.

      • Mike

        It’s true though

    • Andrew

      literally no one says stuff like that but i guess it’s fun for you anti-apple folks to quote anyways.

  • TheVorlon

    Hopefully band 12 support.

    • randian

      And 2GB RAM with 32GB base storage.

      • Fabian Cortez

        More RAM would be welcomed.

        • Mike

          I own a 6 plus and for Apple to still include only 1gb of ram on a 2014 year released phone was shameful.

        • Fabian Cortez


      • Tim Moore

        2gb ram is rumored to be happening but 16gb is the base model with 64gb being the next tier up. Which is dumb imo with 12mp camera and 4k recording. 32gb should be the starting point.

    • GinaDee

      The SoCal Band 12 rollout has been nothing short of amazing. All of those stores that used to be dead zones now have full LTE coverage.

      The iPhone is the most popular phone in the US. So many people will judge T-Mobile’s network for better or worse because of it. That’s why it’s so important that the next device have access to the T-Mobile’s version of the 700 MHz band.

  • Walt

    I’m only upgrading to the 6s for band 12. I’m happy with my 6 features and specs wise but i want band 12. Way played apple…well played

    • Adrayven

      Not Apples fault they didn’t include bands that were not in wide use at the time a year ago. Talk to Qualcomm ..

      • Rob

        Talk to Qualcomm? My Nexus 6 has Band 12 and just about every other band you can think of. Apple makes their own modems last I checked and they definitely could have engineered Band 12 in. They chose not to.

        • Andrew

          Apple makes their own modems? LOL! How hilariously uninformed.

  • Hey Siri..

    The caption for the invite reads “Hey Siri, give us a hint. LOL..LOL

    • hlshure

      And when you say that exact phrase to Siri, she responds “Why don’t you check a rumors blog? That’s what I do.”

  • Mike Palomba

    Finally, now I have to get ready to sell my 6 before it depreciates.

  • taron19119

    I just want to know when is apple music is being released for android

    • Deihmos

      More than likely never. Why not use Spotify?

      • taron19119

        Apple said that they are releasing apple music for android in the fall

        • Deihmos

          That is surprising. I have never seen them release to any other platform. Still not sure why you would want to use it over Spotify.

        • taron19119

          Spotify suck i don’t give me the music i like and apple hired someone who is a Android specialist to release more then just apple music on android

        • Mike

          Beatz music streaming service was on android and in order for Apple to try and beat out Spotify will require them tapping into the Android users and probably windows phones as well.

        • Bordelais

          IMessages needs to be released on Andoids and Windows phones.

        • Andrew

          You’ve NEVER seen them release to any other platform? You mean like how they never brought iTunes or Safari to Windows?

        • Deihmos

          Ok let me simplify. Apple has never released anything on other mobile platforms. I thought it was obvious that I was referring to mobile platforms. BTW safari was discontinued for windows a couple years ago.

        • Andrew

          To be fair, you said *platforms* and *never*. I get it though. Your point wouldn’t have been as strong if you were more specific.

  • YABD

    I am going to jump the apple wagon this year, my whole entire family(wife, kids, mom, brother, sister, aun, uncle, neighbors, grandma and the dog) have iphone except ME.

    • Deihmos

      I just jumped from android because of the awesome promotion T-Mobile is running. You get 216 off the iPhone for trading any worthless smartphone. I traded in that piece of crap lumina 521. The best part is I can upgrade to the new phone when it launches and still get the same price.

      • dtam

        I wish there was a similar android deal…I have another alcatel one touch evolve that I’ve never opened…

        • bklynman

          Sell on ebay,you be surprised how much you will get for never use smart phone.

  • impasse

    i mean obviously we’re going to get more different-colored iphones

  • Boogie Boogie

    Colored iphones and water resistant. Yep new innovations never seen before.

  • gorilla

    You just have to look at Samsung Galaxy from 2 years ago, that’s what the new iPhone would pretty much be like.

    • Luke R.

      lol seriously the Galaxy S6 is an iPhone 4 knock off glass back and all!!! My bad they did make the display bigger so I guess that original

  • Verizonthunder

    I have zero interest in the iPhone 6s unless apple addresses there cell reception. For a premium device cell coverage should be number one priority.

    • jelp2

      I was wondering about that. My wife 6 has horrible reception. The only way to get more dots(bars) is to turn LTE off.

      • Verizonthunder

        It’s a real problem for apple. My best friends partner has the iphone 6 plus and has been having multiple drop calls compared to my best friend who has my old phone Sony Xperia Z3. I hope apple fixes this major issue otherwise it’s a big paper weight.

  • dtam

    I personally don’t care much for iphones but will be JOD-ing my sister in laws iphone to the 6s

  • 16309

    Good news for the apple fans I suppose. I just don’t understand the appeal, but to each his/her own!

  • Luke R.

    I ready for a 6s on magenta!!!

  • j00py

    Unless Apple does something truly innovative, which I doubt they will, they will not win me back to the herd. I’m not interested in paying for the internals and features of last years Android device at a premium handset price point. Besides, why would I ever buy a device I’d have to temporarily void the warranty to use as I please. Two words: torrent loaders.

  • jelp2

    Nowadays, I think “New iPhone” is an oxymoron ;)

  • atown7475

    When did different color options become innovative

  • JBrowne1012

    So iPhone 7 now?

  • Tim Moore

    Wonder if you will actually be able to pre-order it at 3am unlike last year. They also screwed up the shipping too. I’m hoping for the 6s Plus. Hope they have better stock this year.
