The rumor was right on the money -- Apple has sent out invitations for a media event on September 7th. The teaser is characteristically cryptic between its out-of-focus lights (which, naturally, form an Apple logo) and "see you on the 7th" slogan. However, you don't have to read the tea leaves to have an idea of what to expect when Tim Cook and company take the stage. It's very likely that you'll see the next iPhone, which may ditch the conventional headphone jack, tout improved cameras and carry extra storage. There's also a chance that you'll see a new Apple Watch with GPS, a bigger battery and better water resistance.
Apple will release the new iPhone, and plenty more, at an event next month. The company has finally unveiled the time and location of its next launch: 12 September, at its headquarters in California. Then, Apple is almost certain to show off the new iPhones – not one, but three, all of them borrowing the design of the iPhone X but packing in new features and sizes. For now it is still difficult to know what those new models will be called.

I've built a spreadsheet based on event data posted by AAPL Investors. Some of you have seen me use this to predict spring Apple events, but this time we're going to use it to predict when the fall iPhone event will take place. We have ten years of fall Apple event data.
Rumors of a second-gen Watch have been going around for a while, along with reports of possible features, such as built-in GPS and cellular connection. If the new wearable is indeed making an appearance on September 7th, it could be launched alongside the new iPhone. But you can head over to Apple's website and click around on your own to find that even those marked as "New" aren't available anymore. You'll also see that each category -- Sports, Stainless Steel, Hermes and Edition -- has several Sold Out listings. If you've been thinking of finally getting an Apple Watch, it'll definitely be wise to wait until the event is over.
