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

Apple's iPhone 6 and iWatch cold 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.
