Report: Apple's new iPhone, iPad and Apple TV devices will debut on September 9th
We're approaching that time of year when Apple likes to unveil some of its major new products, and according to reports, September 9th -- not September 11th -- is the date to be marked down in diaries. There's no official confirmation as yet, and we will not know for sure until Cupertino begins sending out the invitations. According to those familiar with the matter, though, Apple could take the unusual step of unveiling new iPads at the very same event as the iPhone, capping proceedings off with a long-awaited Apple TV hardware upgrade. 

We've heard a lot about the so-called iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, both of which will apparently adhere to the design language of the current models. Force Touch will be among the marquee upgrades alongside the customary specs bump, but for the most part, reports point to evolution, rather than revolution. 

The iPad line is a little more interesting, by all accounts. The iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will surely see some improvements, although once again, design alterations -- if any -- are likely to be minor. The real story is the so-called iPad Pro, which has been rumored ad nauseam over the past few years. With the likes of Microsoft and Samsung all now offering tablet computers in the 12-inch-and-up category, the Mac maker could be about to do likewise, and where Apple tends to save iPad announcements for a separate event in the fall, September 9th could instead cover everything. 

Finally, Apple TV is expected to see some upgraded hardware, having been neglected for a number of years. By the time September is upon us, the current third-gen model will be three-and-a-half years old, so set-top fans of an Apple persuasion should expect a decent array of improvements. 

Should the keynote take place on September 9th, we'd anticipate a general release the following week, although reported production delays may throw a spanner in the works. 

Are you looking forward to seeing what's next from Apple? Let us know of your thoughts via the comments.

More powerful, maybe (but I don't think so) higher resolution, better battery! oh yes and new touch feedback function, because how your phone vibrates in response to your touch is the latest new improvement! To which I say......'yay' shake my head and move on, since it is the same kinds of improvements other phones does but this one is likely going to be praised like non other for innovation and such.

Well said mate. It is kind of a disappointment that a company like Apple which has billions in cash just stopped innovating. I loved Apple until Steve jobs and then moved on and I don't regret it whatsoever.

Nobody in the industry is "innovating". Do you call making your phone aluminum and glass innovating? What has HTC and LG done? Samsung tried to act like they were this innovative company and people have figured them out. They found out it was BS and most of their features were gimmicks. This is why people are flocking back to Apple in droves. oh, last I checked, people were saying that Apple wasn't innovating even when Steve was around, so go somewhere with that. It has nothing to do with Steve. Smartphones are just a mature product and at the moment, there is not a whole lot you can do to them. New tech just isn't ready for prime time yet.

The new touch feature isn't a feedback it's a input? Your getting force touch mixed up with tapic engine. Force touch enable users a 3rd away to interact with their devices, while android will be stuck with 2 way to interact with their phones, Apple will be able to get read of more useless buttons, menus and save relastate space on the screen by adding force touch, I have no doubt android, lead hey Samsung will come out with a "force touch" of their own and do it better than Apple, there is no need for hate when it comes to force touch.

Exactly, Ahovking... they think that if Apple trying to reinvent longpress that it isn't available on iOS - guess what chumps, longpress was on iOS before android was sold in stores.. we also had multitouch and natural gestures instead of back buttons before android... Whatch how android phones will implement it once apple does it, same with touch ID (not the atrix type), remote lock, OS level voice assist, even the damn apple store.. Force Touch is how it's done - you'll see after you're done "longpressing"... I dont hate on Android, they have their list of firsts, but ignorant post deserves to be trolled...

'long press' and 'force press' already exists on android and pc, has for quite a while, it was proven too unwieldy, two quick presses are easier with a menu then having to use force, because it is easier to click twice then having to make sure you press something hard enough. http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/MotionEvent.html#getPressure%28%29

38. AlikMalix unregistered

hehe, you mean force press where the whole screen pops in and out (like the game of "Trouble")? the difference between what Android already has and what apple does is what Atrix had and Touch ID on Apple...

uh? no that's not how it works with capacitive screens it simply checks how big a surface area the finger has, big surface area hard press, small light press and varies between that? Apple's works the same way, since making the screen actually move would be bad.

The problem of the past with 'force press' has been solved..i have yet encountered any issues using force touch with my Apple Watch and MacBook. This is why Apple is using it..and why android and pc tried too but couldn't to work it out.

Both are on the way and both are not new, the feedback thing is just another way to make your phone vibrate at touch, which seems pointless. The other measuring force is already done on many other devices in a very similar way, it isn't flexing or anything it is at least to my knowledge, just measuring how much of your finger is touching the input. Tip of finger, small surface area, light touch, whole finger, large surface area, more forceful touch. It isn't anything new at all, android has a similar feature already that works just fine but there is very little reason to use it. And even pc's have had it for quite a while, the _ONLY_ case where it is useful to measure 'force' is for artists drawing and such, but in all other cases I've seen it been used its only been troublesome, what's better, click menu and then click option quickly, or press hard and then click option?

41. AlikMalix unregistered

You're words not mine: "but in all other cases I've seen it been used its only been troublesome". Maybe that's the difference between software version of android and hardware version of iOS. All im saying is that haters already saying "it's bad/horrible/useless" when it wasn't even released to try. You guys said the same thing about fingerprint (probably based on experience from Atrix). But now everyone followed apples version of FP. even after Samsung tried the swipe they still changed their mind and made apple touch version on their latest phones. Who knows, force touch might be useless, but you cannot deny that Apple makes things right and makes them useful and makes it relevant, setting a trend. You guys don't give anything apples does a chance and then find yourself back peddling or taking nonsense after Apple actually made a good feature.

Going. By most Apple watch reviews the force Touch = confusion, so I am up on anything that make iPhone users think that iOS is crap more than they do from the video the other day where Google OS was the clear win when they was thinking it was from apple, I do not think there user base is going to get it

55. AlikMalix unregistered

If you really believe that the parody video of some duche showing some iPhone clone to users that are simple people who don't care about tech like we do is how all iPhone user are, that the videos weren't hand picked and edited, with only one intent - you're more "= confused" than you think, buddy. I met too many people who the mink their android phone IS an iPhone. I had people argue with me that their android phone has SIRI it too. And I have not met one person who uses Google Now - because they simple too afraid to get deeper into the UI of android. There are tech illiterate people and that mass of population is platform agnostic - just like people like you who would believe a parody video and Samsung commercials as facts. Get your head out of your android saviors ass. Android only recently caught up to Ios and it took 3 times the specs to run it smoothly. And don't give that s**t about multitasking - I've seen multitasking run smooth on iPhone 4s. I switch my apps faster on my 2 year old 5s than some one on note 4 or nexus from 2014. I also get my daily tasks done with ease from lockscreen on iOS than doing it on android with all the widgets thanks to Siri and perfectly working Touch ID. You really don't want to go against what I can do on my 5s when it comes to real life tasks instead of that nerdy shot where you change your icons and fonts and debug your whatever calibration or some s**t like that. I don't hate android it is built for those that need it, it's just ignorant haters like you tick me off.

about that input > synaptics already have that technology for years (they create touchpad for notebook) and the funny things is.. galaxy note already use that "force touch" technology for years, they use it, so their s-pen can act like wacom device. note pro, asus vivotab, ms surface pro 3, and other tablet also use pressure sensitive touchscreen

54. AlikMalix unregistered

And you have the means to prove its the same technology and it works the same way. Do you actually have an iPhone 6s with final ios9 running in your hands? (by the way I tried surface pro - no difference of hard press or soft - just long press - so not sure what you talking about).

61. xondk

Posts: 1904; Member since: Mar 25, 2014

I don't know if surface pro supports it, but android does, but they do not use it because it does not make sense in most cases, as far as previously asked if the tech is the same, the tech itself might be different, as in how it measures the pressure, but the result and action are the same, it is just not practical. As for my "in all other cases" it is a reference to the practical applications that have been tried and tested with pressure, and it just does not make sense. I am not saying that it is going to be horrible, though I believe it is, my point is it already exists and yet it is going to be praised to no end when apple releases it, even if it will prove the same thing that happened when others use it, that it just isn't practical. My point is that Apple makes something and it gets praised, even though it already exists from other people, that annoys me to no end, apple isn't improving or innovating or anything just taking something that already exists and hypes it to no end. Its sickening and it is tiring, I don't dislike apple, I think they are great at marketing to get people to buy what is objectively an inferior product, because they can change the subjective experience people get from the product, but it gets tiring to listen to when you are one of those people not easily swayed by marketing.

I really hope they introduce a new iPod with up to date specs. I have a old 80gb clssic iPod that works but the headphone jack is bad. I was looking at the iPod touches but I don't want to spend money on on something that hasn't been updated since 2012.

There's something awful about being in love with an outdated piece of technology. They will lining up to buy 3 yeals old technology. Which Apple is fooling their customers by making them believe its the best. Rotflmfao.

Sad isn't it.. Such a out dated piece of technology that somehow in speed test alway keeps up with 2015 spec phones and somehow absolutely dominated graphical performce (I think the only phone I've seen to match and can beat the iPhone in terms of graphic power performce was the S6, not even the Note 4 had a chance.)

I dont care if they got a hamster running in a wheel inside it - it runs fast, smooth, thru the years... just because android OEMS need tripple the specs to be as smooth as iOS doesnt mean that's the answer...

I'm interested in Force Touch and how Apple will implement it.

Completely agree, force touch introduces a 3rd input method.. Which could open a lot of new doors.
