We’ve known for quite some time now from previous rumours that Apple is planning to host a press event on the 9th of September. At the event, Apple is expected to introduce its new iPhones – the Apple iPhone 6S and the Apple iPhone 6S Plus. Now the event is official, as Apple has sent out invitations for a press event that will take place on the 9th of September. Although Apple did not mention what device to expect on that particular date, Apple lifted the lid on the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus on that same date last year. So, we’re assuming that we’ll see two new iPhones once again next month.
The invites have been sent
CNET was first to receive the invites from Apple. The invite let the site know that Apple will be hosting an event on the 9th of September. Like what was previously said, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus are expected to make their official debut at the event. We’ve learned from previous reports that the new iPhones will look exactly like their predecessors, but offer improvements and upgrades when it comes to software and hardware.
Past reports have revealed that the two new iPhones will have a new Apple chip under the hood. If you’re wondering if it will remain a dual-core processor or be upgraded to a quad-processor, if reports are to be believed, it will be neither. Reports say that the new A9 chip will be a triple-core processor. Apart from being more powerful, the two are also said to be tougher. The two are said to be constructed out of Series 7000 aluminium, which will prevent users from easily bending the new iPhones. Force Touch (a feature that can easily distinguish a soft tap from a hard tap) is said to be on board. Force Touch is currently only available with the Apple Watch. One of the most anticipated upgrades offered by the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus are their cameras. The two are expected to sport a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The current iPhones only come with 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel camera combos. The two new iPhones are also expected to come with 2 GB of RAM, which is two times more than the 1 GB of RAM on board the current iPhones. Lastly, the two are expected to come with higher-capacity batteries.
