It's official! Next-generation Apple iPhones to be unveiled September 9th

It's official! Next-generation Apple iPhones to be unveiled September 9th
Perhaps after weeks of hearing speculation that Apple will unveil its next-generation iPhones on September 9th, today's news is anti-climatic. Still,  Apple has just made the September 9th date official by sending out invitations to the event, which will be held in San Francisco. The new iPhone models, presumably named the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus, will be unveiled to the public exactly one year to the day that the current models were introduced.

The new iPhones are expected to be constructed with Series 7000 aluminum. This material, used on aircraft, is being employed by Apple to prevent the bending that marred the release of the iPhone 6 Plus last year. We also should see the new handsets offer Force Touch. This feature, already found on the Apple Watch, allows the display to differentiate between a regular tap and a harder tap. Apple also is expected to double the amount of RAM to 2GB, bump the rear camera to 12MP from the current 8MP, and include a larger capacity battery on the two new "6s" models.

We also could see the company unveil a 4-inch plastic-clad Apple iPhone 6c (which would be released in November), and there is talk that Apple will also unveil its new line of iPads, including the long-rumored 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro.

In the days ahead, we could see more leaks, news and rumors related to the devices that Apple will unwrap on September 9th. Feel free to check in often. We love to have you.

No intelligent person cares about Apple and whatever they have to say on 9/9. 9/3 is the date that matters.

That was Apple "Spring Forward" event. He probably cares about MacBook the most... But that also means he is not intelligent.

That's the day Samsuck figures out how to remove all its jammed pens.

Me too, cannot wait to see A9 in action, most likely to set the new benchmark in performance, especially single core and graphics.

You said all the best for them and in your inside wish them to die.. Please, make your comments constructive without trolling

Hi, JohnMicrosoftMobiles. You should work on your comments yourself - such as this very one I'm replying to - before criticising other peoples' comments.

What is wrong with my comments? I am not a troll like many of you. You just started your comment with a troll action.

"in your inside wish them to die.." He did not insinuate anything like that. Try working on understanding what pEople are trying to say, and less on being vain and posting selfies.

I watched him and he was trolling many times. Secondly, you first called me Johnmicrosoftmobile, and now you are hating on me. Posting selfies happened on my account. I did not do that on your mom profile. Stop being a s**tty person and get a life. Most of Sony fans are mature, but unfortunately not you

Everybody including the phone arena authors wouldn't want to say anything negative about apple either. 7000 Series aluminium was already used right from Samsung galaxy S6 and nobody says apple has copied from Samsung because apple always does innovations(like these) right!!!!

You mean like the Samsuck S1,2,3,4,5,6? That all copy last year's iPhone?

.... Wait, didn't you already get the Note 5?

Yes, and?

LOL, why!?!? It sounds like you're still on the fence about what phone you want. Could you have not waited for Apple to announce their device before you spend your money? What if Apple shows of something you like more than your Note? Buyer's resource sucks.

Well let me clarify: 1. I didn't buy my N5, cause I'm thru with the iPhone. I bought it, cause I wanted it as an android user. 2. I still have a 6 plus now, that I'll either keep, or sell to get the new one. 3. I love android and iOS, but I'm very disgruntled with Apple/iOS, and want to see a better product, in order to keep buying new ones. 4. I make a good living, and can easily afford to buy two flagship per year. 5. My account with AT&T has 2 lines on it. 6. I'm not a fanboy, I'm a techie and I buy what I want. 7. The Note is a different experience than the iPhone, and serves a different purposes for me. 8. No need to wait for the iPhone, cause my Notes not a replacement for it. I hope that clarifies it for you. Grown man, loves tech, buys what tech he wants. And buyers remorse doesn't suck, when you have the cash to spend.

... You suck, I can't afford two devices. lol, I get you though, I was under the assumption that you use a single device. You earn your money, spend it how you like.

No disrespect intended, just wanted to be clear. I love both platforms, and appreciate what they bring to the table. Right now, Android is my daily driver, but that could change. The next iphone must have 7 things, for me to buy it. 1. A9 tri core 2. 2 gigs of ram 3. 12 mp rear camera 4. 3-5 mp front camera 5. Multi window 6. Pic n pic 7 slide over. Force touch would be a nice bonus. I don't get these, I keep my 6 plus, which works like crap BTW.
