A new report has surfaced on Buzzfeed that suggests Apple will introduce its next line of iPhones on Wednesday, September 9.

September is a familiar month for those following the release of Apple’s next-generation smartphones. The annual refresh cycle has been a familiar focal point in the calendar for a number of years now. However, Apple generally leaves the announcement of the date, or the actual event for that matter, often until just a few days before.

The Buzzfeed report says:

Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell BuzzFeed News the company intends to hold a special event the week of Sept. 7, with Wednesday the 9th being the most likely date. Sept. 9 is the same day on which Apple held this event last year.”

Apple is also believed to be preparing a big refresh in its Apple TV ambitions. An upgrade, revamp, or completely new product has been long-rumored, and this year’s event could well provide the platform for it.

However, for all intents and purposes a new line of iPhones is practically a dead-cert. Information and rumors on what’s expected to be an interstitial upgrade – the now traditional ‘s’ line – have been floating around for awhile now. It’s likely we’ll see a faster processor, and Force Touch displays, as we’ve already seen on the most recent MacBooks, and the Apple Watch.

Further rumors suggest that it could actually be thicker than the iPhone 6, and may feature a screen resolution of 2K.
