Lining up with our earlier report, Apple has reportedly scheduled a media event for Tuesday, September 9, which we can only assume will be the unveiling of its new iPhone lineup expected this fall. ReCode reports:
Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9 — a date to which Apple numerologists will strain to attribute significance. As with September events past, the focal point of this one is to be Apple’s next-generation iPhones, which are expected to feature larger displays of 4.7 and 5.5 inches and run speedy new A8 processors. Apple declined comment.
While an event in the second week of September would line up nicely with past iPhone unveilings, there is still no confirmation on what exactly we’ll be seeing at the event. It looks like Apple has put the wheels in motion for scheduling the event, but it doesn’t appear that press has received invites or any confirmation from Apple.
There has been lots of speculation about how Apple will introduce the rumoured 4.7 and 5.5-inch models of the next-generation iPhone. Recent reports claimed that the 5.5-inch model could be delayed until after October, or possibly into 2015, but it’s unclear what that might mean for the device getting stage time alongside a smaller 4.7-inch model in September.
ReCode, which has a solid track record when it comes to Apple event dates, also recently reported along with others that Apple was planning to introduce its much rumored iWatch device in October.
