Apple sends out invites for September 9 event, iWatch and iPhones expected

The wait is almost over. Following weeks - months, in fact - of intense speculation about its next wave of devices, Apple today sent out invitations to a press event scheduled for September 9, at which it is expected to launch its new wearable device and iPhones.

Of course, Apple isn't revealing everything just yet - its invites feature nothing but a close-up crop of the company's logo, the date and a teasing statement: "Wish we could say more." 

Apple is expected to unveil at least one new iPhone with a larger display than the current 4-inch models. There have been hints that the new devices will finally include NFC support, and that Apple may be planning to launch its own payment platform to 'revolutionize' mobile payments and purchases.

Recent reports have also suggested that the company will show off its new iWatch at the event too.

OMG! What could "Wish we could say more." say about the iWatch!

I really don't care, but Apple's events are always fun to watch.

Have they not been streaming all events for the last couple of years? Usually one can watch them on any Apple device. I know I watched the last one.

This is how it probably going to happen by the time all announcement is over. The stock price reduce a little bit due to disappearance of iWatch and 5.5 inch iPhone.

MacRumors posted something about a large building being built on the Apple campus, on the site of an old building which apparently has historical significance for Apple as they've not unveiled products there for a long time. Think they announced the original Macintosh there?

Anyway apparently it's three stories tall, and someone suggested it's most likely a "show home" presumably to demonstrate home automation features of the iWatch or similar. Sounds pretty plausible to me.

It is the Flint Center for the Performing Arts at De Anza College. The last time Apple used it for an event was the introduction of the iMac in 1998.

I am looking forward to this event and by next week should have the Apple tv so I can watch the event as I love Apple products

Apple normally hides clues in their invitations, and the leaf in their logo looks suspiciously like a sundial with that drop shadow.

It's going to be a fitness band/shuffle rather than a watch at a decent price, not anything like Samsung's and Motorola's dead in the water high priced wearables.

That's what I'm guessing too. A wearable iPod nano, so they could squeeze a bit more money out of the line before they sunset it. I just don't see them going all out on an iWatch line when the 5S can already do what the Fuelband or Fitbit can and then some.
