All the information on this months Apple Press event – iOS 9 and the brand new iPhones.

As the 9th September Apple press event nears, more and more news pieces and rumours are appearing surrounding the upcoming iPhone duo release, almost certainly due to be unveiled this month at the San Francisco show. As seen in previous years, Apple’s product cycles have given a September announcement and following handset and the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are the next developments to the vast Apple range.

Following suit with the release cycle, Apple is thought to be implementing refreshed software, a faster processor and possible Force Touch technology, which can differentiate between a soft tap and a deep press, making the touch screen all the more intuitive. This would align with the alternating cycle of new hardware and software designs each year, and with the new iOS 9 software, the timing is perfect.

After inviting journalists to the September 9th event, through a fun and brand focussed ‘Hey Siri, give us a hint’, Siri kept quiet on the subject, giving coy responses likening the user to a kid at Christmas.

So what can you expect with the new iPhones?

A follow up to the September 2014 iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the new couple to arrive this autumn are the iPhone 6s, and 6s Plus – unofficially known as the iPhone 7.

These new models will undoubtedly feature an enhanced battery life, Force Touch (as seen on the Apple Watch) and a possible 12 mega pixel camera, as well as a suggested 2GB of RAM in the A9 processor. Higher screen resolution is pretty much a given, as well as – unfortunately – a higher price.

The 6s Plus will of course be bigger, and most likely more powerful. The included iOS 9 operating system will bring a more intelligent Siri and redesigned built-in apps, improved stability and Apple Pay Touch ID functionality. Build-wise; reports suggest perhaps either a Liquidmetal body or use of a stronger Series 7000 aluminium alloy to stave off any mishaps similar to 2014’s ‘bend-gate’ saga. The aesthetic design and screen size of the iPhone 6s is likely to remain close to the iPhone 6, with some colour variances and minute change in thickness.

These handsets – or at least the iPhone 6s – should be available around mid-September, with many tech websites stating September 18th. Keep your eyes peeled, as Apple may be releasing a new iPad too!
