Apple's iPhone 6 and iWatch could both be announced on September 9

Apple's iPhone 6 and iWatch could both be announced on September 9
Apple is expected to announce two iPhone 6 models (with 4.7-inch, and 5.5-inch screens) on September 9, and it looks like the company is planning to unveil one more new device on that day. 

According to Re/code, this one more device should be Apple’s first wearable - most likely, the long-rumored iWatch. Mind you, this isn’t the first time we’re hearing that the iWatch could be officially presented next month, though we now have a solid date for its announcement.

It’s definitely a good time for Apple to introduce the iWatch, as pretty much every other relevant company is launching (or working on) smartwatches. While the specs of the iWatch are a mystery for now, the device will most probably make use of all the new iOS 8 features that Apple announced back in June, starting with HealthKit and HomeKit. The iWatch will likely be able to run independently from iPhones and iPads - though this remains to be confirmed. Analysts estimate that Apple could sell the iWatch for around $300 a piece, this making it significantly more expensive than most smartwatches that are now available.    

Both the original iPhone and original iPad changed the industry in several ways when they were initially released (in 2007 and 2010, respectively). Will the iWatch do the same? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Yeah, poor Mxyz couldn't walk straight with that on, he'd fall over the side of his bridge too often, good point.

Why the hate? Toward Apple and the PA user? You sure seem to do both a lot :( Need a hug?

15. InspectorGadget80 unregistered

Mxyz is the one that needs a hug. He trolls on everything that's not apple related. He trolls motorola, Samsung n Google

Is it actual trolling though? Or something you call trolling because you and or other people do not like what his opinions are?

Post of the day honors are yours bro? Mxy is no troll, he's steadfast in his opinions.

2 Post of the Days since my return. I like it lol. No but really….too many people on this website hate on people for the silliest reasons. It's almost as if people hate on a product because the person next to them is. This websites community would be a heck of a lot better if people grow up and stop acting like testosterone filled high school virgins.

That same mentality causes bullying jedii, just to let you know. Lets switch the words around, see if it sounds right still Mxyz is the one that needs a hug. He trolls on everything that's not apple related. He trolls motorola, Samsung n Google (Oh thats fine, he just doesnt like those companies) Mxyz is the one that needs a hug. he trolls on everything thats not (insert sports team, ethnicity, looks). He trolls (Opposite faction of previous statement) Sound about right? You dont like something because its not your preference? Yeah, its fine to 'troll' on other things to rile people up as long as they dont know who you are, where you are, and you can face the consquences of pissing off someone who 'cant take a joke' Id like you see you say that to a kid whos been bullied cause he wears glasses in high school or for liking something different than the norm..like comic books (First hand experience). Id love someone like you to say "Meh, they are just steadfast in their opinions of you"

I see your point, but there's a huge difference in Mxy, and being a high school bully bro. Mxy has his opinions, and 99% of the time he's the one being bullied, and trolled by trouble makers. The idiots on the site, and I'm sure you know who they are bother him constantly. He strikes back, so do I.

Striking back and defending yourself is noble, Im not one to deny that. I say stick to your guns and do so strongly. But dont confuse what your doing is any better than them. If you want to do so, then accept that you are no better. Its fine to stand up for your beliefs, but you cant justly say that yours is right and they are wrong. Doing so can create an even bigger problem than what you intentionally started with. Personally, the Iwatch is more of a 'why' than a 'what'. The ideas of making an 'iwatch' seems very counterproductive considering how apple's products and software works. It seems like something that would be more of a jewelery accesorry, something to oooo and ahhhhh about than an actual device to use.

Bs, he is trolling, we all know it. You as well tell others to shut it if you don't like the content of the post, but I'm the only bad guy here as I slam the guy back. Good grief, hypocrisy.

These guys do not have a problem with what Myxz purports, just those that go against their grain. Hypocrites in other words.

This is Apple dude. All it takes is an announcement. It doesn't matter when it comes out. The problem with current smart watches is that the general public could care less. This will change on Sept. 9. Think I'm wrong? Put your money where your mouth is.

I said the same thing about moto 360 its too late they lost a lot of money people got lg and Samsung when they wanted moto, now all the rest are doing round so they won't be different

At the end of the day I wonder do some people shop at Walmart or some at Macys. It just depends on which brand you prefer and how much are you willing to pay.

Better than what? Damn dude, we haven't even seen the iwatch yet. It would help your credibility if you wait to see what it looks like lol!

The iWatch will either be nice in design or ugly like the android wear smart watches but either way a smoother UI

I always felt the iPhone rather lacked a UI altogether. Not in the sense that you couldn't interact with it, of course, but in that it has no homescreen(s) and no "customability"; no shortcuts, no choosing favourites, no tile/widget information... It's just a huge, cluttered, uninformative app list right in your face.

$300 plus worse specs than $100 android wear watches. When will the ifans learn.....

iPhones have the worst specs but they're still smoother than most high end android phones out there

When will Taters learn to shut his mouth? Good post.

We all know when u make ur hardware and software its easier, but a small screen keeps hesitation down /lag I really think apple will realize this on ip6 and fix it on 6s. All I know is this next 2-3weeks are going to be amazing
