Rumours are abuzz with news about Apple’s 9 September Media Event. The event hasn’t been confirmed by Apple but they should send out invitations to media on 2 September where we might get some clues about what will happen during the media event. Here is an update on the rumours about what Apple will be revealing at the Media Event on the 9 September.
There is no doubt that Apple will unveil two models of iPhone 6, a 4.7 inch and a 5.5 inch model. We are still unsure when the 5.5 inch model will be available . The 4.7 inch is likely to go on sale on the 19 September in the US, UK, Australia and some other countries. It is expected to get to South Africa in November.
We have already seen mock up of the iPhone 6 and most likely won’t be surprised at the physical look of the iPhone 6. Apple are most likely to reveal some new software advancements in iOS 8 that they haven’t already revealed.
Recent rumours suggest that Apple might include NFC into the iPhone 6 and reveal their mobile payment solution. There is very little information about the inclusion of NFC but it has been rumoured for a number of years.
A recent rumour that started with Re/code, who have a perfect track record, suggest that Apple will unveil their long awaited iWatch however it won’t be available until next year.
According to Re/code, the device will “make good use” of both HealthKit and HomeKit, two sets of APIs that were introduced during WWDC. HealthKit, which ties into Apple’s iOS 8 Health app, focuses on health and fitness, while HomeKit is a home automation platform designed to allow users to control a variety connected devices.
