Well, it's official. Apple has sent out invites for its September 9 event, confirming the recent spate of rumors.
As AppleInsider reports, the invites don't say much. They read simply, "Wish we could say more." However, the rumor mill seems pretty certain that we'll see two new iPhones—a 4.7" and a 5.5" model—and the hotly anticipated iWatch at the event. Word is that the iWatch was supposed to debut in October, but Apple pulled the launch forward at the eleventh hour.
If things go as they did last year, AppleInsider reckons the new iPhones will hit Apple Stores on September 19. And iOS 8, which Apple unveiled in June, should roll out across compatible iDevices a couple of days prior. As for the iWatch, it's anyone's guess when the wearable gizmo will start sprouting up on hipsters' wrists.
