Apple sent out its latest press invitation last night, to an event on 9 September in San Francisco that’s expected to herald the next generation of iPhones. “Hey Siri, give us a hint,” teased the invite – anyone asking its Siri software for a hint was given one of a range of jokey replies relating to the event.
But 9 to 5 Mac’s chief Apple sleuth Mark Gurman has been spilling the beans on what’s likely to be announced: iPhone 6s and 6s Plus smartphones, with a big 12-megapixel camera upgrade; the ability to record videos at 4k resolution; and a “rose gold” colour (i.e. pink). He also claims the event will see no smaller iPhone 6c smartphone as has been rumoured. There’s also gossip that the event will see some announcements around Apple TV, the connected set-top box that Apple has described as a “hobby” for the last few years with its 25m+ sales, but which is expected to be a key part of Apple’s push into a subscription TV service IF it can do the necessary deals with television rightsholders.
