John Paczkowski, Buzzfeed:
Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell BuzzFeed News the company intends to hold a special event the week of Sept. 7, with Wednesday the 9th being the most likely date. Sept. 9 is the same day on which Apple held this event last year.
Like Apple fall events past, this one too will focus on the company’s next-generation iPhones, which are expected to arrive at market with a pressure-sensitive Force Touch display, an improved camera system, and a significantly faster and power-efficient wireless chip. Sources say Apple executives are likely to show off the company’s latest iPads as well, though that 12.9-inch “iPad Pro” seems to be a wildcard, still.
Makes sense given the number of features in iOS 9 that are iPad-oriented. Apple will surely want to demo the split screen functionality, which — as of today — only works on one iPad model, the Air 2. A full lineup of new iPads that support all the new features looks more impressive, naturally.
