If you’re waiting for the next round of Apple hardware, your wait is almost over. Apple recently confirmed that it will announce its newest products on September 9. What should you expect from the event? Apple plays everything close to the vest, so it didn’t detail the products it would be unveiling, but it is expected to show off the iPhone 6 as well as a smartwatch. The iPhone 6 should be the company’s largest phone yet, with rumors of a 4.7-inch or even 5.5-inch model in the works. The new iPhones will be thinner and more powerful than ever before, and should include an energy-efficient A8 processor. The phones may also include a Sapphire Glass screen, making them more durable and scratch-resistant than ever before. The other major new device will be the iWatch – or whatever Apple decides to name its smartwatch. There haven’t been many concrete leaks about that device, but with LG, Motorola and ASUS all launching new devices in early September, Apple’s version will have some stiff competition.
