Apple announces September 9 event for iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus launch

The unveiling of the new Apple iPhone range is finally upon us, even as a September 9 event for that purpose has been officially announced by the Cupertino-based company. The 6S and 6S Plus smartphones are expected to be the stars of the show, but there are even talks of a small 6c model and a new Apple TV console being prepped by the firm.

The September 9 date was being rumored since quite a long time. Pre-orders for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are expected to commence on September 11, while their actual sales will begin on September 18. This date will apply to the first wave of countries to get the handsets, while the second wave which usually includes India will get them on September 25, reportedly.

The new iPhone 6S models have been seen in a large number of leaks over the past few weeks, which is why we can speculate various features that will form part of their offerings. Apple will apparently be blessing them with Force Touch displays, which are sensitive not only to touch but also to the amount of force you’ll be applying to them.
