The Apple Special Media event is so close! What to expect?




The decorations are going up at The Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco, and with only 2 days left, it’s the calm before the Apple Special Media Event storm.



Come 10:00 AM PST on the 9th, Tim Cook will present us with what Apple’s been working on. Not all of it, of course, we shouldn’t expect any self driving cars or line of sight teleportation (yet), but what can we expect?



*The tagline on the press invitations and the posters for the event is ‘Siri Give me a hint’. Unsurprisingly, Siri has not been forthcoming.



*The iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. Some are saying that the whole iPhone 6S Plus name is a little too mouthy, and suggest that Apple will either jump to the name iPhone 7 instead, or  -rather more drastically – switch the naming sequence to something new altogether.



* There are reports that we will also see a smaller 4 inch iPhone in the style of the iPhone 5C, however this is sounding less and less likely, at least at this point. If the iPhone 5C isn’t replaced, we’re looking at it’s mid-term extinction.



*The new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus models will be made of less bendy 7000 Series aluminum, which features on the Apple Watch Sport ( and competition bicycles, so there you have that). This has reportedly made both the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus 0.2mm thicker, but 2 grams lighter. Apparently the change in thickness will not be something you can notice, so current cases will still fit.



*Also seen on the Apple watch and presumed to be carried over to the new models of iPhone is the Force Touch feature, where you can access and use different features dependent on the pressure of your touch.



*Both iPhones will see significant upgrades to the camera, with 12 Megapixels instead of 8 on the rear camera, and the front camera getting a 5-megapixel sensor with an accompanying flash. Also rumored is the ability to shoot 4k video.



*Both iPhones will get a new A9 Processor and 2GB of ram.



*A new color of Rose Gold is expected, as is improved Touch ID.



*Pre-orders, if accepted, should start September 11th, with the official launch on September 18. Probably (It is Apple after all!)



*A significant update to Apple TV is set to be announced. After almost 3 years of no updates, now we’re looking at getting a slimmer more powerful device with a new more intuitive software design, Siri, an App store, and -long overdue – better search functionality, more than likely using Siri.



*Also using Siri and/or a touchpad feature will be a new Apple TV Remote.



*There are rumors of an iPad Pro – an iPad targeted at professionals with a bigger screen (12.9 inch display), an A9 processor and 2GB of RAM, and – maaaaybe possibly – a stylus.



*There are rumors of new Apple Watch wristbands, and an iPad Mini 4, but not much has been said about either.



* It all starts at 10:00 AM PST. Apple will be streaming it live here.  If you’re looking to upgrade to the new iPhone models, consider selling your old iPhone here for cashmoney!
