One or two new iPhone models; with or without sapphire screens, larger screens, or NFC. But why would Apple introduce new iPhone models at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino? That venue doesn’t get used much by Apple, and when it does it’s a big, big deal. So, what’s up?
iWatch, Therefore, iAm
Most of us are able to see the mixed signals emanating from Apple’s Cupertino, CA headquarters, and the constant barrage of often contradictory and conflicting reports of new products.
Apple watchers even delve into secrets the announcement itself may hold– which depicted the date, 9.9.2014, a zoomed in Apple logo, and the phrase “Wish we could say more.” Really?
What came to my mind immediately was that of a finger and a sine wave. Pulse? Can that simple clue be translated into a wearable health monitoring device? Sure, why not?
Here’s another clue that indicates the iPhone is not the only attraction ready to be unleashed. The Flint Center itself.
Apple used the Flint Center when Steve Jobs introduced the original Mac in 1984, then again in 1998 with the introduction of the highly popular iMac (and seldom since).
That indicates the Flint Center is being used for this announcement because it’s a bigger than normal product introduction for Apple. Also indicative of a Think Different™ device is the giant, nearly three-story, structure Apple is building outside of the Flint Center.
While most of us expect new iPhone models and perhaps the iWatch with some HealthKit health monitoring apps thrown in, maybe Apple has something else in mind. HomeKit, anyone? The large structure could display Apple’s new revolution, a complete and interactive vision of the home of tomorrow where everything is controlled and managed by Apple devices– home, health, entertainment, communication.
Whatever it is, something wicked big this way comes, folks.
