“It’s officially iPhone season again now that Apple Inc. has set the date for its annual September launch event,” Andrea Chang reports for The Los Angeles Times. “The launch event will be held at 10 a.m. at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, Calif., where the company is headquartered. It’s a departure from Apple’s recent product debuts, which have been held on its own campus or at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.”
“Every year Apple hints that it has groundbreaking products on the way, but this time around, the anticipation is heightened,” Chang reports. “Already, tech watchers have pointed to Apple’s decision to use the Flint Center — where Steve Jobs debuted the original Mac three decades ago — as a sign that Apple is planning to announce something major. (A massive white structure is currently being built on the campus of De Anza College, where the Flint Center is located.) ”
“Analysts, too, say they’re expecting a blockbuster fall for Apple,” Chang reports. “Two new iPhones seem like a sure thing, both of which are widely rumored to boast larger screens: one 4.7-inch version, one 5.5-inch version… There are also strong indications that Apple will debut a wearable device, possibly a smartwatch called the iWatch. Such a device would almost certainly be a big seller during the upcoming holiday season and would probably be a companion product that would easily sync to the iPhone and other Apple devices.”
