    The first day of spring, that can only mean footy finals are in the air and an Apple event just over a week away. Needless to say much of the news is focused on what we are likely to see at the 9 September keynote.

    The new iPhones are pretty much locked in for next week, though we are still getting pictures of parts. This time 9to5mac has shots of the alleged logic board ...

    Yes it is now official, overnight Apple has issued the press with invites to an event on September 9. The tag line “Wish we could say more”. What does that mean, who knows but you can speculate away in the thread started by Oldmacs.

    The event will be held at the Flint Center, which has been used before, and it seems Apple is adding its own touch to the site. The Loop has posted photo’s showing Apple is constructing ...

    It is no surprise I am sure that we are dominated by iPhone 6 leaks and rumours this morning.
