It’s official: Apple’s next special event is set for 10 a.m. PT Sept. 7. At that time, a new iPhone generation is expected to be unveiled.
Apple has created a webpage for the event, which will be streamed live. Various tech-oriented media outlets report that press invitations went out Monday morning.
The event venue is San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, an arena that seats 7,000.
Apple-centric news website 9to5Mac reports that, in addition to the “widely expected” unveiling of new iPhones, the event could involve unveilings of new MacBook Pros and a new Apple Watch generation.
The Verge reports that this will be the fifth straight year Apple has had a special event in early September to announce new products. Last September, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus took center stage.
Any new models unveiled this September, however, are not expected to be that different from the current generation. According to The Verge, such “minor visual differences” might include:
- Fewer antenna lines
- The removal of the headphone jack
- Increased water resistance
- A dual camera system for the larger-model phone
- Doing away with the 16GB entry model
You can watch Apple’s next special event live via the Apple website or on Apple TV.
