Apple Announces Sept. 9 Event; iPhone 6, iWatch Coming?

(Los Angeles Times/MCT ) -

Apple has made it official: On Thursday, the company issued media invitations to a Sept. 9 event in Cupertino, Calif., where it is expected to unveil the latest iPhone 6, and possibly more.

Rumors, consistent in detail but not officially verified, suggest Apple will announce a 4.7-inch screen iPhone and a 5.5-inch model. At those sizes, they’d be larger than any of their predecessors, and on par with Android smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S5.

Rumors also suggest Apple will introduce an “iWatch,” a wrist-worn computer capable of connecting to the iPhone via Bluetooth.

One thing is for sure: Apple plans to announce something on Sept. 9.
