We’ve learned from previous reports that Apple plans to lift the lid on its new iPhones next month in September. Now it’s official. The invitations are out and Apple will be hosting a press event on the 9th of September.

Mark your calendars
The news comes to us courtesy of CNET. It has received an invitation from Apple, letting it know that it will be hosting an event on the 9th of September. Like we mentioned before, we’re expecting two new iPhones to make their official debut at the event. The two new iPhones are the 4.7-inch iPhone 6S and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus. The two are expected to look exactly the same as their predecessors, but offer upgraded hardware and new features. The 9th of September is exactly one year after Apple officially unveiled the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.
According to past reports, the Apple iPhone 6S and the Apple iPhone 6S Plus will come with the new Apple A9 chip under the hood. The processor is said to be triple-core processor. The upcoming iPhones are said to be much tougher, thanks to the Series 7000 aluminium said to used in their construction. This will prevent the bendgate fiasco from ever happening again. It is also said to come with Force Touch, a feature that made its debut on the Apple Watch. It allows the screen to know the difference between a regular tap and a hard tap. Another major upgrade are the iPhones’ camera combos. The two are said to sport 12-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras, which is big leap from the 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel camera combo on board the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Lastly, Apple is said to outfit its new iPhones with a generous amount of RAM (2 GB) and larger capacity batteries.
Reports also claim that Apple could lift the lid on a 4-inch iPhone clad in plastic, which has been dubbed the iPhone 6C. This more affordable iPhone is rumoured to hit shops in November.
Since the 9th of September is fast approaching, we’re sure to come across more iPhone leaks in the days to come.
