It’s official. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) fans can now mark Sept. 9 on their calendars.

The Cupertino, California, company has sent out emailed invitations to media outlets regarding an event on Sept. 9. Apple remained fairly cryptic about the purpose of the invite, which said only “Wish we could say more.”

While Apple remains quiet on the subject, several rumors indicate that the tech giant plans to use the event to introduce its next iPhone models, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6L. A new wearable device, expected to be called the iWatch, is also likely to be unveiled at the event.

Details of the devices haven't been confirmed by Apple; however, several leaked schematics, rumors and parts for the iPhone 6 have indicated that Apple plans to introduce a number of new features in the smartphone, including near field communication, or NFC; a sapphire screen cover; a faster 2GHz A8 processor; and 2GB of RAM.

The event comes just over three months after Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, where the company unveiled a number of upcoming software products, including iOS 8, which will include several features such as a health app.

It’s not known if Apple plans to provide a live stream video for the event, which is reportedly being held in Cupertino instead of San Francisco’s Moscone Center, where WWDC was held.

Apple iPhone 6 pricing hasn’t been confirmed, but analysts have speculated that the smartphone may start in the $199-299 range with a two-year contract and $700 without a contract.
