“Apple should introduce new iPads, iPhones and (potentially) the long-awaited Apple TV at a special event in the week beginning September 7 (currently predicted to be September 9, but this may change),” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.
“The new model iPhones take things several steps further. Don’t expect it to look too different, but expect a new A9 processor, better battery life, double the on-board RAM and a radically different user interface (with Force Touch). Network reception will potentially boast double LTE speeds and incoming Wi-Fi improvements. The 12-megapixel camera will be capable of creating DSLR quality pictures,” Evans writes. “Apple is deadly serious about photography.”
“Apple has no intention of ceding the tablet market it continues to dominate and the new iPad refresh will aim to build the momentum,” Evans writes. “There’s speculation Apple might introduce the long-awaited 12.9-inch iPad Pro capable of fully exploiting the many iPad-focused enhancements we already know are on the way in iOS 9, but what we do know is that processor, display, and Force Touch will feature across the range. The iPad mini and iPad Air will be significantly improved, with the smaller device being an iPad Air 2 equivalent.”
