[SAN FRANCISCO] Apple on Monday sent out invitations to a "special event" on Sept 7 in San Francisco, where it is expected to unveil a new iPhone model.
In the company's usual enigmatic style, it provided little more than the date, time and place to the invitation-only gathering set for the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium near San Francisco City Hall.
Apple has maintained a rhythm of introducing updated iPhone models on an annual basis, timing introductions to coincide with the year-end holiday shopping season.
Rumours include talk of an iPhone 7 that will boast improvements to software, cameras and processing speed along with doing away with jacks for plugging in wired headphones.
California-based Apple could also use the event to showcase updates to other products, such as its smartwatch and laptop computers.
