Apple goes official with September 9 event

It’s been about three weeks now since the usual nebulous rumors of a late-summer Apple launch event started taking form, zeroing in on one date: September 9. And while that initial report sounded a wee bit unsure of itself, subsequent rumors have circled back around on, if not that precise date, at least a narrow timeframe bordering it. But even with this feeling like a sure thing, all the speculation in the world can’t replace some good old fashioned confirmation. That’s just what we have this afternoon, as Apple goes official with its plans for a September 9 announcement.

Obviously, we’re expecting some new iPhones, with the 6S and 6S Plus likely to represent slightly tweaked versions of last year’s designs, adding features like Force Touch while not stepping too outside the box.

Rumors have been a little less certain about whether or not we’ll see new iPads as well, though an Apple tablet announcement remains a possibility. It could also finally be time for a hardware refresh to come to the Apple TV, and the rumored Siri support the set-top box may be picking up could be part of what Apple’s alluding to here with its Siri call-out.

We’ve got just under two weeks to go until Wednesday, September 9. Check back with Pocketnow between now and then for all the last-minute Apple leaks, and be sure to swing back around on September 9 itself for full coverage of Apple’s announcements.
