Immersive Apple Maps AR directions have launched in Japan's Tokyo, the latest city where the iPhone maker's augmented reality (AR) walking directions are available.

In addition to the upcoming iPhone keynote next Tuesday, Apple in a surprise announcement confirmed it will be holding a standalone press conference the following day, September 11, in Beijing, China. The development prompted speculation that the Beijing event could serve as a launchpad for a landmark deal with China Mobile.
