Apple iPhone 6S release date 2015 live stream: price, features, on

Apple's newest iPhone will be unveiled today, as the company is expected to introduce the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus at its event in San Francisco.

Apple is also expected to reveal several other products, including a new iPad Pro and a new Apple TV.

Apple's keynote event begins in San Francisco at 10 a.m. Pacific time today (Wednesday, September 9, 2015), or noon central/1 p.m. eastern.

Apple will live stream the release event. You can watch it here. AL.com will provide live updates throughout the day.

While the company has been coy, here's what analysts and others expect at Apple's event Wednesday in San Francisco:

NEW IPHONES (ikely named the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus)

Apple sold a record 183 million iPhones in the nine months since releasing the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, which have bigger screens than earlier models. That has allowed the company to remain highly profitable, even as Samsung and other phone makers struggle.

Based on the iPhone's usual two-year product cycle, industry experts expect this year's models will be the same size with more subtle refinements, such as a faster processor, higher-resolution cameras and new exterior colors.

One likely addition is "Force Touch, " which uses screen sensors to discern between a light tap and extended finger pressure to trigger different functions. This arrived on Apple's smartwatch and some laptops this spring.

Some analysts question whether these features will inspire the same type of consumer demand that propelled last year's iPhone success story. But research firm Kantar Worldpanel says a substantial number of iPhone owners are still using older, smaller models, which makes them likely candidates to upgrade.

APPLE TV

Apple is expected to unveil a redesigned Apple TV set-top box with new capabilities for apps and games, plus recognition of Siri voice commands to search for shows and retrieve weather forecasts and sports scores. The current model is a few years old and does little beyond playing video and music.

Analysts say the new TV box is part of Apple's broader strategy to carve out a bigger role in the home. For instance, the new Apple TV could serve as a hub for Siri to control lamps, thermostats and other "smart" appliances, using Apple's HomeKit technology.

It could also set the stage for Apple to later introduce a streaming video service aimed at competing with Netflix and other Internet entertainment services.

SMARTER SIRI

Even without an Apple TV, new iPhone software will make it easier to set up automated homes, including having lights turn on and window shades go up when you tell Siri on the phone, "Time to wake up."

With the new software for iPhones and iPads, Siri can also offer recommendations, such as nearby restaurants, before you even ask. It might even launch apps for you, based on your past habits, when you attach headphones or connect to a Bluetooth speaker in a car. Siri will also offer to add calendar and contact entries based on your incoming email — something Google already does with its competing services.

New iPhones will come with this new software, known as iOS 9. Apple also plans to release it as a free update for existing iPhones and iPads, likely next week.

WHAT ELSE?

After major software updates over the past two years, the new software for iPhones and iPads is mostly about refinements, including a different font, a new way to scroll through photos and behind-the-scenes tweaks to improve battery life.

But there will be a few new features beyond a smarter Siri. For instance, major cities will get transit directions, addressing a major shortcoming with Apple Maps. In some cities, including New York and London, Apple sent teams to map out subway exits and entrances. That way, users getting to the subway are guided to the closest entrance, while those getting off are told which exit signs to look for.

Apple is also expected to unveil a larger iPad for business users, but probably not until at least October. Existing iPads can get the software update when it comes out for the iPhone. With it, iPad users will also be able to run two apps side by side, or have video running in a small window within the main screen. It's a feature Samsung phones and tablets already have.
