iPhone 6s Duo Coming On 9th September; Apple Under No Pressure
Well, well, well. Given the countless iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus leaks and rumors that we've seen so far, it was only a matter of time until someone decided to speak up about the device's launch date as well. Apple's known to launch its devices in September every year, but by the looks of things right now, the Cupertino manufacturer/designer/company might be looking to speed things up a bit. After all, one of its major rivals in the mobile world, Samsung, is launching its Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus this week, rather than the IFA in Berlin which has generally been in the past.
Apple's iPhone 6s Launch To Be Held On Wednesday September 9th
But it wouldn't be like Apple to expedite a device launch just because its rivals are doing so. After all, the company is known for staying doggedly stubborn when it comes to its gadgets, and according to Buzzfeed's John Paczkowski, things won't be changing this year either. John's been known for providing some good details about Apple's events in the past, and we're inclined to believe that he might turn out to be correct after all.
Sources that are familiar with Apple's plans for this year, according to Buzzfeed have spoken up about Apple's next launch event, and the date is given to be Wednesday, September 9th. Apple's iPhone 6 launch event was held on the same date last year, and the manufacturer might be following the same trend this year as well.
The iPhone 6s duo is expected to feature several upgrades from last year's devices, though not any major changes, as has always been the case with S lineup devices. The most anticipated upgrade is Force Touch, which will bring Apple's very own haptic feedback functionality to the iPhone this time around, after the Apple Watch and the MacBook. With Force Touch, a host of new applications will be opened up for the iPhone, and who knows; if its successful, we might see similar upgrades to the iPad as well.
Speaking about the iPad, Apple's also expected to showcase some iPads as well, but Buzzfeed says that you shouldn't be getting your hopes up about an iPad Pro though. Apple's larger screened tablet has been in the news for a long while now, and we're curious as to when the Cupertino manufacturer will get around to showcasing the device officially.
An upgraded Apple TV is also expected to make an appearance, with an upgraded frame, new processor and an upgraded operating system with Siri on board. The Apple TV hasn't seen much love from Apple since 2012, so its high time that it receives an upgrade as well. Does September 9th sound a feasibly launch date for the iPhone?
