If you didn't already know, Apple is likely to introduce its next iPhone models next month. And if you needed confirmation, consider it done: The company is holding a press event on September 9 at 10am PT.

The venue will be new this time around as Apple booked the Bill Graham Auditorium in downtown San Francisco for the event.


New iPads are a possibility here but the more likely device announcement are new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus handsets. The launch of these will coincide with iOS 9, which has been in a public beta for several months and introduces the ability to run two apps at once on certain devices.

Earlier today, reports of 12 megapixel cameras on the new phones surfaced, along with an improved front-facing camera sensor and dedicated front flash. The new handsets may be the first iPhones to support Apple's Force Touch technology, which debuted this April in the Apple Watch.

Since the event invitation has the tagline of "Hey Siri, give us a hint," look for Apple to spend a fair amount of time showing off its new Proactive technology to help find relevant apps and data based on context through Siri.
