Apple Announces September 9 Product Launch

The leaf on the Apple symbol is tinted green at the Apple flagship store, 5th Avenue, New York, April 22, 2014.

The rumors continue to swirl about Apple's upcoming iPhone6.

The world's third-largest mobile phone maker is hosting a product launch in Cupertino, California, September 9. Apple has teased the buying public in its event invitations by claiming, "Wish we could say more."

Online technology websites are convinced that Apple may reveal a new generation iPhone with a bigger screen. Apple watchers say the existing 10-centimeter display will be widened to nearly 12 centimeters.

The sites also talk about the possibility of an iWatch, a smartwatch that could help monitor people's health and control Internet-connected appliances and electronics in the home. If the technology sites prove true, the release would be the company's first new product launch since the iPad in 2010.

Apple has since redesigned and added features to its iPhones, iPads, iPods and the Mac since the release of the iPad. Those moves have raised concerns among investors that the company has lacked new ideas since the October 2011 death of chief visionary Steve Jobs.
