On August 28, Apple confirmed that they would be holding their special event on September 9. While it’s already expected that this would be an important time for Apple, with the launch of the iPhone 6 and rumored unveiling of the iWatch, but now a bigger indication is pointing to an even bigger event.
A report published by MacRumors shows that Apple is gearing up for the media event in a big way, and doing so at the Flint Center for Performing Arts at De Anza College, located in Cupertino, California. The Flint Center holds a special place for Apple, as it was the location that Steve Jobs introduced the original Mac 30 years ago. While that would be enough to mark this event as something noteworthy, Apple is reportedly aiming higher.
Three stories higher, according to an image published by MacRumors. Leading up to the event, Apple has reportedly been busy building a large building at the Flint Center leading up to the September 9 event. The structure has been blocked by a large white barricade to date, and has quite a few security individual walking the area. Administrators at the site had reportedly refused to divulge any information about the site, stating only that, “We are not at liberty to discuss that due to client wishes.”
The Flint Center being used for the new event is certainly noteworthy, and it has many people speculating that this could be the biggest Apple event since the original iPhone. Indeed, the seating capacity at the Flint Center is quite a bit higher than it is at locations Apple routinely uses for their events.
It’s expected that Apple will unveil the iPhone 6 at the event, but also rumored that they will unveil the new iWatch alongside the flagship smartphone as well.
Are you getting excited for the event?
