Apple has just sent out media invitations for its September 10 media event where the company is expected to introduce its next-generation iPhone hardware, reports The Loop. The event will begin at 10:00 AM Pacific Time and will be held at the company’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. The tagline on the invitation reads “This should brighten everyone’s day.”
The event is expected to include the introduction of two new iPhone models: an iPhone 5S successor to the current iPhone 5 and a lower-cost iPhone 5C that will reportedly have internal components very similar to the iPhone 5 but wrapped in colorful new plastic shells. The event will undoubtedly also see a final preview of iOS 7 before it released to the public.
Apple has also been reported to be launching new iPad and iPad mini models later this year, but they will not be making an appearance at this event. A number of Mac updates are also expected in the coming months, but they too are likely to held for a later date in order to give full focus for this event to the iPhone.
The iPad Pocket Projector is the latest find from Hammacher Schlemmer, which specializes in pretty much anything awesome. This device is great for those of you who have jobs that take you in directions where you’ve got to give a lot of presentations on the go.
Operation couldn’t be any simpler. Just plug in to your iPad’s 30-pin charging port, and create a 35 lumen LED projector that is capable of 640 x 480 resolution for diagonal images from six inches to 60. (Recommended distance at eight to 78 inches away.)
While you may not be as excited about this particular version as we are, it’s a milestone of what phones and projectors will be capable of as technology continues to improve. This is only the beginning, friends.
The company had previously confirmed that the next version of the iOS operating system would be unveiled at WWDC. The extremely simple banner features a svelte number 7 against a minimalist background.
Some of the banners already up at the Moscone Center include the tagline ‘Where a whole new world’s developing’.
WWDC begins Monday with the conference opening with Apple’s annual keynote presentation. The company is expected to unveil iOS 7, OS X 10.9, the iRadio streaming music service and new Mac notebook models.
Apple said the keynote address for its annual Worldwide Developers Conference will occur at 10 AM PT Monday, June 10, at Moscone Center in San Francisco. Not a big surprise, as that is the day the event kicks off. Speakers for the keynote have not been announced — nor are they likely to be. But expect to see CEO Tim Cook presiding over the standard cast of characters as they demonstrate the latest in Apple tech, including the next major releases of both iOS and OS X
