As Jason Snell from Six Colors reports:
(Nerd note: This is the first Apple Event invitation to feature an automated ticket workflow. The invitation email features a click-to-RSVP link that leads to an RSVP page that, in turn, generates an Apple Wallet ticket complete with barcode.)
Apple is expected to release updated iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus models, plus an all-new iPhone 8, said to include face recognition, a new OLED display and lack a Home button. The company is also rumoured to debut Apple Watch models with LTE capabilities, plus a new 4K Apple TV.
Of course, we’ll find out release dates for final versions of iOS 11, watchOS 4, tvOS 11 and macOS 10.13, while probably hear more about HomePod.
