It’s been confirmed; Apple’s fall event will take place on Wednesday, September 9, at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. As usual, the invitation only event will be taking place in San Francisco and will be streamed live from Apple’s website at 10 a.m. PDT.
While most of the press invitation is standard affair, the invitation does do something different this year. It reads “Hey Siri, give us a hint.” This led us to believe it was simply an indication that Siri will be receiving upgrades in iOS 9. This was until we remembered that Apple is much more clever than that. We then decided to actually ask Siri to give us a hint.
Contrary to the digital assistant’s usual tendencies, Siri isn’t very helpful in the matter. However, she does come back with some interesting responses.
Siri continues to suggest that she won’t be revealing any secrets. Instead we will have to find out for ourselves what’s going to happen on September 9.
While the invitation could be hinting new Siri upgrades in iOS 9, there is another more exciting possibility. There have been rumors circulating on the web, speculating that a newly revamped Apple TV will include major improvements, one of the most important ones being the onboarding of Siri. Siri could be capable of finding your favorite TV shows or setting up recordings all without the use of pesky hard-to-see-in-the-dark buttons.

Other enhancements we are likely to see in the new Apple TV include
…an improved processor, new remote, greater abundance of memory, and slimmer design may draw in tech fans looking for the newest, hottest gadget. However, the TV will likely add features that cater to a larger audience. An app store with support for third-party apps could open up endless possibilities for new viewer content, and support for Apple’s much-rumored and highly-anticipated streaming television service could draw in the large mass of viewers that are fed up with the inflated prices of cable and satellite services.”
Expect to see the announcement of the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, as well as the possibility of a new iPad.
