It's time to circle Tuesday, Sept. 9 on your calendar. According to a new report from Re/code, Apple will announce the next-generation iPhone on that date. Here's more from the site:
Onstage at our inaugural Code conference earlier this summer, Apple SVP Eddy Cue described the company's fall product pipeline as the best he'd seen in his 25 years at Apple. A few weeks from now we'll get our first look at what he was talking about. Apple has scheduled a big media event for Tuesday, Sept. 9 — a date to which Apple numerologists will strain to attribute significance. As with September events past, the focal point of this one is to be Apple's next-generation iPhones, which are expected to feature larger displays of 4.7 and 5.5 inches and run speedy new A8 processors. Apple declined comment.Re/code has a great track record with Apple rumors, so I'd say this is almost a certainty. Current reports say Apple will introduce an 'iPhone 6' with both a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen. The handsets are expected to also feature a number of camera improvements and other goodies. We'll definitely let you know if we hear anything more.
