IFA 2014 may be a great place to go if you’re into Android or Windows Phone, but iOS? The best we might hope for are some interesting third-party accessories, and even the launch of the coolest Bluetooth keyboard or wireless speaker won’t be able to make us forget that we have a real Apple event just days away, where news of next-gen hardware is essentially guaranteed to arrive. Sure, there have been (and will continue to be) plenty of last-minute stabs at just what hardware will debut (and when), but the details of the event are a done deal: come September 9, we’ll have some answers. Today, Apple starts counting-down to next Tuesday and shares word of a pending livestream.
In just a bit under five days, the new counter Apple’s put up on its special events page will reach zero, and Apple fans all around the world will be able to tune-in and watch live from Cupertino as months and months of rumors, leaks, and speculation crystallize into the formal launches of the company’s latest products.
In fact, the latest rumors seem to suggest that this could be a particularly packed event, with Apple delivering news of phones, tablets, and its new wearables all on the same day. That sounds like it could be a lot to take in, so if the idea of sitting through a long, drawn-out announcement doesn’t appeal to you, be sure to check by Pocketnow for our reports on all the highlights: what’s confirmed, when’s it arriving, and what do we still have to keep waiting for? All that and more, coming next Tuesday, September 9.
