As expected, Apple will be unveiling a new iPhone in September. The company just announced that an iPhone event will take place in San Francisco at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on September 9. Press invites started to arrive on Thursday, confirming the event:
As noted by Mashable, this will mark the first time Apple has held the event at the Bill Graham Auditorium. iPhone launches usually take place at the Cupertino campus or Moscone West. This year's event, of course, will mark the debut of the predictably anticipated iPhone 6s. As usual, no official confirmations of the device's name or specific features have been released by Apple. However, many speculate that the new iPhone will take full advantage of the Force Touch feature that's currently available on the Apple Watch and the most recent MacBooks. 4K video capabilities have also been rumored to arrive with the so-called 6s, alongside a faster A9 processor. In fact, 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman reports that the back camera will feature a 12MP resolution, likely in a move that makes the new iPhone capable of shooting with 4K. Animated wallpapers, like the ones found on the Watch, are also rumored to be a new addition to the phone.
Anyway, smash your iPhone 6 now so you'll have a good excuse to replace it in a few weeks.
