Apple has officially announced that it will host an event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on September 9.

The Cupertino-based company sent out an invite to press, pictured below, that features the tagline, “Hey Siri, give us a hint.”

It is expected that the company will announce successors to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The new iPhones are reported to feature a stronger exterior shell, a front-facing flash module and the ability to capture 4K video, among other improvements.


The event is set to start at 10 AM PT, and you can expect MobileSyrup to cover the proceedings.

Update: It looks like Apple has finally deemed a Windows-based browser worthy of streaming its events. According to an updated bit of text on the announcement’s homepage, Apple will broadcast the September 9 event to Safari users on iOS and Mac, as well as Microsoft Edge users on Windows 10. Chrome and Firefox users are still out of luck, though. The reason for this omission appears to be the streaming technology, HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) technology, which those two browsers don’t support.
