Apple routinely updates its iPhone lineup in September, and like clockwork the company has announced a keynote presentation for September 9 – the exact same date as last year’s event.
Although Apple hasn’t officially released any specifics about the topics on show at the ‘Special Event’, it’s highly likely they will be announcing the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus as upgrades to last years’ models. According to the rumor mill, the new phones will boast improved processors and memory, and include Force Touch capabilities alongside an upgraded camera. There are also rumors of a possible iPhone 6C.
The company is also widely expected to reveal a revamp of the long-neglected Apple TV media streaming box, rumored to include its own App Store and a new touch-capable remote controller.
The splash page for the ‘special event’ is typically cryptic, showing nothing but the the quote “Hey Siri, give us a hint,” implying that new Siri capabilities could take center stage at the keynote. Apple will be talking about the upcoming release of iOS 9, which we already know features a more capable and proactive Siri.
For the first time, it will be possible to stream the keynote from a non-Apple device – those running new operating system Windows 10 will be able watch the event from their PCs.
The keynote will be streamed live from Apple’s website at 10AM PDT (5PM GMT) on Wednesday 9 September. Of course, we’ll keep you up to date on all the key developments right here at TapSmart, and will be covering the event live on Twitter – don’t forget to follow @TapSmart!
