Apple Next Event is a countdown notification Widget for the Mac’s Notification Center. All it does is everything you need to know. It counts down to the upcoming September 9th event in San Francisco, a standard venue for Apple keynotes and new product presentations.
In most such events Apple issues a formal invitation to the media powers that be so they can book last minute flights to San Francisco to see what’s going on. What’s going on? Siri won’t say. That’s right. The teaser is ‘Hey Siri, give us a hint.’
So, I asked Siri on my iPhone to give me a hint. Here’s what she said.
The only hint I can give you right now is a hint of lime. And that there’s a big announcement on September 9.
What’s coming from Apple on September 9? New iPhones. New iPads? Nope. Those will show up later this fall. New Apple TV? New Apple streaming television subscription service? Both are possible, but I would expect the former and not the latter.
Also on tap will be a quick look at both iOS 9 and OS X El Capitan, with more information about when both will be released to the public later this fall. Will the new iPhone be called iPhone 6s? Only if Apple keeps to habits of the recent past, but that would leave an opening for Samsung to race ahead of Apple with the Samsung Galaxy S7 six months later. Seven is greater than six.
Alright, back to Apple Next Event. Install it and let the countdown begin.
