iPhone 6S to Launch on September 9, According to New Report
Apple will unveil the next iPhone at an event “likely” scheduled for September 9, according to a new report from Buzzfeed. Additionally, the report claims Apple may launch an iPad Pro with a 12.9″ display, and a new Apple TV product at the iPhone event.
The next iPhone, presumed to be called iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, is said to include a faster processor, more RAM, an improved camera, and a Force Touch display. The device will likely be offered in the same screen sizes as the existing models, available in 4.7″ and 5.5″.
The same Buzzfeed report also mentions that Apple may debut a new Apple TV product with Siri voice control on the new iPhone launch day, though it should be noted that Buzzfeed had previously claimed the new Apple TV would launch in June earlier this year, which came and went without the products unveiling.
Earlier in the year, a report from reputable Wall Street Journal and New York Times suggested that a subscription service with Apple TV would arrive in September of this year, which would better align with the new reporting from Buzzfeed. Nonetheless, these are mostly rumors, so it may be wise to take the iPad Pro and new Apple TV claim with somewhat of a grain of salt, though the likelihood of a early to mid September unveiling for the next iPhone is very high, as it follows the precedent Apple long ago set for new iPhone releases in the early fall.
As Apple usually unveils the final version of new system software along with new iPhone hardware, this also suggests that iOS 9, OS X El Capitan 10.11, and WatchOS 2 will also be launched to the public on or around September 9. Previously, Apple has stated new trio of new OS releases would be available in fall of 2015. Each of those operating systems will be available as free downloads for compatible hardware.
