 1409242600 455x400

The wait is (almost) over. Apple has finally issued an official invite to a Sept. 9th press event that will almost certainly show off the next iPhone. 

Thanks to the enterprising rumor mill, we’ve known about this date for weeks now, and the invitation confirms it. Other than the date and registration details, the invite says the event starts at 10 a.m. in Cupertino and contains the words, “Wish we could say more.”

Apple really doesn’t have to say much on its invite. The tech world has been rife with rumors on what to expect from the next generation iPhone, reportedly called the iPhone 6.

In addition to a larger 4.7-inch display (up from the iPhone 5s’ 4-inch one), the iPhone 6 is expected to carry a blazing fast A8 processor, a strong sapphire screen and improved camera features. The Cupertino company is also rumored to be working on a larger 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 that will be available after the smaller model. 

Other than the next-generation iPhone, Apple is also expected to show off its first wearable device. The purported iWatch, or iTime, is rumored to be an iOS-based smartwatch with a strong focus on fitness tracking. We also expect new iPads to be released later this year.

September is shaping up to be an incredibly exciting month. Apple’s main rival Samsung is expected to announce its Galaxy Note 4 phablet on Sept. 3, while Korean company LG is slated to show off an LG G3 with a stylus at IFA 2014 in Berlin. ASUS is joining the party, with plans to announce its ZenWatch wristband on Sept. 3.
