New 5G iPhone expected at Apple online event on September 15
Apple will live stream the presentation from its Silcon Valley HQ.
Apple on Tuesday fired off invitations to a September 15 online event expected to introduce a new-generation iPhone tailored for superfast 5G telecom networks.
The typically tight-lipped technology titan revealed only that the presentation would be streamed starting at 1700 GMT (9pm UAE) from its headquarters in Silicon Valley.
Copies of the emailed invitation spread quickly on social media, featuring a video-snippet version of the Apple logo in blue that unravelled into the event date.
The invitation was also posted at the Apple website, where the event will be streamed.
Apple has routinely held events this time of year to unveil new iPhones, and expectations are that this time around the spotlight will shine on a 5G model, with other new handsets possible as well.
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives said in a note to investors that a check of Apple's supply chain in Asian has strengthened his confidence in a iPhone 12 "supercycle" kicked off by the release of several new models in October.
While Apple uses its September events to showcase its most important products, new versions of iPhone handsets might still take time as the company in July had flagged a delay by few weeks from the usual timeline.
Other products usually unveiled in September include new versions of Apple Watch and iPad.
Apple's typically cryptic invitation for media read: "Time flies."
