Apple has now officially send out an invitation to press for an event in Cupertino on September 9th. As we reported previously, the company is expected to release the new iPhone 6 during the event. In the last few days, new rumors have emerged and it now looks like Apple is also going to be unveiling the iWatch, which wasn’t expected to be released until October. If that is the case, it is going to be one of the biggest and most important events for Apple.
The iPhone 6 has to be a real game changer, something the iPhone 5 really wasn’t. LG, HTC and Huwaei are all making headway in the space as Android dominates the overall smartphone market.
The 5.5″ model of the iPhone 6 will position Apple in a segment they have missed out on in recent past so incremental business can be expected from that. A larger model alone will not do the trick however, we need to wait and see what innovative features aside from the sapphire display the new flagship model will have.
Analysts are positive the iWatch will be a success. Morgan Stanley predicts that Apple will sell 60 million units in the first year alone!
