“Apple Inc. is holding a Sept. 9 event, where the company is said to be preparing to debut new iPhones and a wearable device,” Adam Satariano reports for Bloomberg. “The unveiling will be held at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts near Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.”
“Apple is set to introduce two new iPhone models: one with a 4.7-inch screen, and another with a 5.5-inch display, as well as a new wearable device, which would be the company’s first new product category since the iPad debuted in 2010, according to people familiar with the plans,” Satariano reports. “The Flint Center, which seats 2,300, has been used before for major Apple events, such as co-founder Steve Jobs’s introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Jobs also unveiled the iMac at the theater in 1998. The venue also hosted an event earlier this year celebrating the Mac’s 30th anniversary.”
“Last year’s iPhone 5s and 5c also debuted on the second Tuesday of September,” Satariano reports. “Anticipation for this event has given Apple’s shares a boost. Already the world’s largest company by market value, Apple shares reached an intraday record today of $102.78, and are up 28 percent this year.”
