Paczkowski: Apple’s Fall iPhone Event to Be Held Week of September 7

John Paczkowski, reporting for 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.

Also expected to debut at this event is the long-awaited successor to Apple TV.

If it pans out this way, it’ll be a change from the previous three years. Since 2012, Apple has held separate events for the iPhone (September) and iPad (October) each year. Would be simpler to put them all into one event.
