iPhone 6s rose gold concept Martin Hajek 002

German blog Macerkopf.de is reporting that Apple’s upcoming ‘iPhone 6s’ and ‘iPhone 6s Plus’ smartphones will hit store shelves on Friday, September 18, or nine days following the rumored September 9 unveiling that BuzzFeed’s usually-reliable John Paczkowski recently reported on.

Apparently two of Germany’s top three wireless carriers expect to kick off sales of the new handsets on Friday, September 18.

This assumed schedule would match up nicely with past iPhone release patterns.

Carriers would know in advance when the next iPhones are coming, but it doesn’t exactly take a genius to figure out the exact launch date yourself: common sense and conventional wisdom suggest Apple won’t steer away from past launch timelines.

So if there’s a media event scheduled for Wednesday, September 9, Apple should start accepting pre-orders for the new phones on Friday, September 11, before first shipments start hitting customers’ doorsteps and arriving in stores the following Friday, September 18.

If history is an indication, the new devices will first launch in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and a few other key markets in terms of size and revenue. The second wave of iPhone 6s launch could be due on September 26, as reported today by Dutch blog TechTastic.nl (Google Translate).

Make sense?

It’s indicative that Germany’s #1 telecom provider, Deutsche Telekom, recently opened an online reservations system for those looking to buy unreleased iPhones.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are said to offer a stronger, Bendgate-proof aluminum body, more advanced cameras with greater pixel count, a faster A9 processor with system-in-package design and 2GB of RAM, support for the faster 300Mbps LTE networking, force-sensing screen, upgraded NFC hardware, a faster Touch ID and other improvements over the present-generation models.

In addition to the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus (and maybe a rumored iPhone 6c), September 9 should also bring us some new iPads and a refreshed, slimmer and faster Apple TV hardware with Siri voice control, a redesigned remote with touch controls, downloadable apps and games via an Apple TV App Store and more.

In addition to hardware changes, a next-generation Apple TV is also said to be based on iOS 9 software and include a revamped user interface to make the set-top box look and feel more in line with other iOS products.

      • Capirexz

        Wait, whatttttttttttttttttttttttttt?!

  • Freddy Born

    since when does apple cover ipad and iphone (let alone apple tv) at the same event??

    • Chris Tangler

      never, as far as I know…pretty sure ipads are spring, macs are early summer and phones are September

  • n0ahcruz3

    i would definitely get that rose gold+ black screen!

  • AppleTV new interface needs to be a complete one. If it’s anything like the current then epic fail on Apple’s part. The current interface is pretty awful in design. We shall see…

    • James G

      Current one is so bad. And so slow. Using a FireTV makes Apple TV seem like it was made in 2010. Oh wait, it was.

  • Lordrootman

    The best mockup ever Apple take money

    • Joey

      That’s not the 6s

  • Bugs Bunnay

    Dat bronze color

  • Myles Cashwell

    We NEED that Rose Gold/Black colorway

    • Rowan09

      Don’t know this was never an option.

  • Nathan

    If they stick to 16GB base model, I’m done.

    • Jake Platt

      Why? It is some matter of principle? Because there are numerous other storage size options available as well. You are not just stuck with having to get 16GB.

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Apple has confirmed that they’re dropping the 16GB base models.

      • Adrian

        No, they haven’t! Where did you get that idea? Apple never confirm rumours.

  • James G

    The new Apple TV better be 4K compliant otherwise no point in upgrading given how long it’ll be until they make another one.

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      4k isn’t everything, it’s still worth upgrading even if it may not support extreme HD.

      • James G

        There are 4K sources out there now. Netflix and Amazon to name a few. The price of 4K TVs is also reasonable now (under $1k for some sizes). I highly doubt Apple would update the Apple TV in another 18-24 months with it, so they need it now to be future forward.

  • Joey

    Did you even read the article? Nowhere does it state that Apple is officially dropping the 16GB.

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      That’s true, however there is nowhere that it states that it won’t happen. These are reports, not rumours or speculations, plus it makes sense that Apple would drop it.

      • Joey

        Whether or not Apple is officially discontinuing the 16GB model is not the point here. Apple has confirmed nothing regards to the storage they are offering for the new iPhones. All these “reports” are nothing more than baseless speculation with nothing to back them up. The announcement is only less than a month away, so just chill out and wait for the real news.
