Apple has sent out invites for a 9 September event, with speculation high it will announce the iWatch, new iPhones and a larger iPad.

As usual with Apple, the invite gives little away: it states the date, and says "Wish we could say more".

Apple iWatch and iPhone announcement

Also as usual with Apple, the rumour mill has been busy. Apple is widely expected to have a host of products in the pipeline, but it's pure speculation regarding what it will announce at the event.

It's likely to release the final version of iOS 8, and has been sharing betas of the software over the summer.

We also expect Apple to announce an update to the iPhone. Rumours suggest it's working on larger versions of its smartphone, including a so-called iPhablet.

CEO Tim Cook will also be looking to boost iPad sales, and Apple is thought to be working on a 12.9in version of its tablet - though that isn't thought likely to arrive until next year.

Last but not least, Apple is widely expected to enter the smartwatch market with the iWatch.

The event falls after the IFA tech show in Berlin, where Apple's competitors are expected to show off their existing smartwatches, and release new models.

However, the smartwatch market remains nascent, and many analysts are waiting for the iWatch in the hopes Apple kickstarts the wearables market into the mainstream.

Feel free to bookmark this story and come back to it after the event on 9 September to see what all the many rumours got wrong.

Do I really give a s**t?

I can barely contain my indifference

More material for click-bait headlines about non-existent Apple products.

Maybe Tim Cook should look to price the iPad based on cost instead of [licks finger] "how much can we get away with?" to sell more.

Does the launch of a new phone really warrant such headlines and number of articles anymore?

I mean, I kind of got it when smartphones were new and the iPhone was ahead of the pack. But it's years since that was the case.

I can't help feel this is the press desperately trying to keep that 'fever' alive and the public really couldn't care less.

Apple hype is so 2007....

The only thing that Apple could do on the 9th of September to justify the hype, is to launch a product that nobody else has thought of. But when did they last do that? OR perhaps announce massive price drops!
