September 9 Event Scheduled by Apple, ‘Hey Siri, give us a hint’
Apple has sent invitations to selected media outlets for a September 9 event at the Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco, California. Presumably this event will be where the iPhone 6S is unveiled, perhaps alongside the rumored new Apple TV.
A teasing headline sits prominently at the top of the invite (via CNBC, we didn’t get one), saying “Hey Siri, give us a hint.” perhaps suggesting that Siri will play a prominent role in the upcoming keynote. Rumors have long suggested that a revised Apple TV would gain Siri support.
Amusingly, if you actually ask Siri the question on the invite to give you a hint, you get a variety of playful responses that pertain to the September 9 event, all of which skirt around any details (image via @INaFried on Twitter, you should follow us there too).
The iPhone 6S is expected to look the same as existing 6 devices, but be faster with an improved camera and a Force Touch display. You can read more about the rumored specs of iPhone 6s here.
A revised Apple TV has apparently been in the works for a while now, and is said to include Siri, a new controller, and an App Store, amongst other new features.
In terms of software, iOS 9 is likely to get a final release date at the September 9 event, and it’s also quite likely that OS X El Capitan will gain a final version for Mac developers with a release date for the general public.
The September 9 event begins at 10 am PST and will be available here as a livestream on Apple.com to everyone with an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch with iOS 7 or later, Macs with Safari, or Windows 10 PC with the Edge browser.
