Apple has confirmed an "invitation only event" in San Francisco on September 9, where it is expected to unveil its next generation iPhone.
Expected to be called the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the handsets are expected to look identical to the current version- but include radically overhauled internals and a new force sensitive screen.
Recent reports also claims the tech giant could be planning to release another handset just months later. Apple suppliers are gearing up for the launch of a smaller 4-inch model dubbed iPhone 6C as soon as November.
A new Apple TV set top box, which can run apps, is also expected to be unveiled (early Thursday September 10 NZ time).
The much anticipated new version of its $69 TV box is also expected to be unveiled in September alongside new iPhones, and will run a version of Apple's iOS. It is also expected to have a new, touchpad remote and boosted performance.
It says the new device will be smaller and slimmer than the current version.
The new remote control will include touch-based input and gesture support, and the TV will use Apple's Siri assistant.
iPhone 6S: What to expect
Although Apple has not confirmed any details, analysts claim the handset will include:
- Updated processor
- New "Force Touch" pressure sensitive screen
- Upgraded camera
- Models will be available in new rose gold colour option, similar to that offered on the Apple Watch
