Apple’s September 9 event: What to expect

September 7, 2015

Apple has already announced a keynote event that will take place on September 9. Here is a list of things to expect from the event.

iPhone 6S

September is usually the release of the new iPhone, and this year is no different. The iPhone 6S, as it is most likely to be called, will be more of spec upgrade from the current iPhone 6/6 Plus models. Expect it to have the newer A9 processor and *will* probably feature a new 12 megapixel camera that is capable of recording 4K content. There was also a rumor about the new iPhone will be supporting a new Force Touch display that will add different levels of sensitivity for various functions. A haptic feedback engine might also be included to stimulate the force touches.

An iPhone 6C variant was also rumored but is highly unlikely Apple will be releasing this particular version since the iPhone 5C was not really a hit. Also, expect the minimum capacity to be at 16 GB despite calls to eliminate it. Why would Apple still keep it as an option? The main reason would probably be the price. By offering a 16 GB option at the lower end of the pricing spectrum, Apple can somehow capture users that would still want to use an iPhone without having to splurge on models that are more expensive.

iOS 9/El Capitan/WatchOS 2

The keynote will also confirm the release date of iOS 9, WatchOS 2 and OS X El Capitan. iOS 9 will be the company’s newest mobile operating system that powers its smartphone and tablet variants. WatchOS 2 is the newest version of the operating system made for the Apple Watch. This new version will finally enable the Apple Watch to run native apps without the need for an iPhone.

Lastly, is OS X El Capitan that is the latest operating system running on the Mac. While there were minimal design changes featured, it will ultimately be under the hood enhancements that will offer a seamless usage from your iOS devices to your Mac.

The best bit about these? They are all being released as a free upgrade.

Apple TV

The Apple TV last got a major update in 2012 and many are speculating that it is due for an upgrade. Seeing as that there were rumors floating that Apple might introduce a new subscription based TV service, it is also likely that it will be launching a new Apple TV to go with it.
