Apple is looking to hold a media event on September 9.

According to Re/code, the iPhone and iPad maker may be holding its annual new iPhone event in San Francisco, California. Media invites have yet to be sent out, and Apple declined to comment.

We are expecting to see at least one new iPhone announced — perhaps even two.

Rumors have Apple finally launching a larger display iPhone with 4.7 inches believed to be the standard. A possible 5.5-inch iPhone may also be announced with a later release date. While Apple has long been an advocate of the one-handed experience, consumers are buying up large screen Android devices and asking for larger displays.

September 9 also happens to be the first day of the new combined CTIA Super Mobility Week event in Las Vegas. Apple has a way of stealing the thunder from shows, such as a few CES shows in the past, and it looks like the company may be doing it once again this year.
