Apple made it official. Something is coming on September 9th. But what? iPhone? iWatch? Apple’s message and invitation to the media:
The only clue is ‘Wish we could say more.’ Or, is there more? Yes. At least, a few clues.
First on my list is the venue; the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California. That’s where Steve Jobs unveiled the first Mac in 1984, and the iMac in 1998, so one could expect this to be a big announcement.
Second on my list is Apple’s acknowledgement that OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 would be available “in the fall.” It’s still summer.
Third, why would Apple announce both iPhones and iWatch devices on the same day? Why not spread it out a few weeks or a month and double the amount of free hype and hysteria that Apple gets with every new product?
