As was rumored Apple today sent out invitations for September 7th iPhone event. Apple will have an invitation-only event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 7, at 10:00 AM PST. Apple has also announced that the event will be live streamed on Apple TV and online on Apple’s website.

It is rumored that Apple will announce the next generation iPhone 7 and Apple Watch 2 at this event and will start shipping these devices with in 2 weeks. The new iPhone 7 will look almost identical to the current generation iPhone except for the antenna lines. However, the internals of the new iPhone will see major upgrade with faster A10 processor, bigger battery and a new camera system.

Even Apple’s invite for the event hints at the new camera system with the Bokeh Apple shape. Apple will be using a new dual camera system on the bigger iPhone Plus model that will bring better color, better field of depth and sharper images, along with the ability to have optical zoom.

Even though the iPhone may look almost same from the outside, I believe this will be the biggest hardware advancement since Apple brought the first 64-bit A7 chip to the smartphone world in 2013. This will be an interesting event.
