Launch of the new iPhone

New iPhone launch: What we know so far

New iPhone launch: What we know so farWill there be an iPhone 6 upgrade?

In two days time one of the greatest mysteries of the year will be answered.

What the heck are Apple planning to launch on September 9? Will it be an iPhone 6s or could it possibly be an iPhone 7?

The company are keeping pretty tight-lipped but some internet rumours are stronger than others.

Here’s what we know so far.

The invitations are out

Apple has already sent out invites to about 7, 000 people for the launch event in San Francisco.

postmanThe event will be live streamed and you can sign up to watch it on the Apple website.

The downside is that it will be held at 6pm San Fransisco time… which is 2am in the UK.

It will have ‘Force Touch’ technology

(Picture: AP)The strongest and most persistent rumour about the new device is that it will have something called ‘Force Touch’ technology

It will be able to distinguish between a light touch and a firm poke. App developers say it could be used in the same way as right-clicking the mouse on your computer.

Force Touch is already used on the Apple watch so it is seen as a very likely feature.

It will have a better camera

The camera could be in for an upgrade

An employee of Foxconn, the Chinese company which builds Apple iPhones claims that the new models will have a massively improved camera.

It could have a tougher screen

Another of the more persistent rumours is that the screen will be upgraded to a scratch- and shatter-resistant sapphire glass one.

That could spell the end of iPhones with spider-webs of broken bits over the surface.

The new device will be on sale by the end of the month

Previous leaks from Vodafone suggest that the gadget will be on sale, in stores by September 25.

Siri will not help you

We asked her this afternoon, just to be sure Apple were not hiding the answers right under our noses.
