Apple to Release New iPhone on Sept. 9

Apple is set to release its new iPhone on Sept. 9. Invitations were sent out on Thursday, but Apple did not go into detail, and simply said "wish we could say more."

Apple will likely roll out a smartwatch at the event, given that the firm released smartwatch apps in June and obtained a relevant patent in July.

Samsung Electronics took up 73.6 percent of the growing smartwatch market in the second quarter of this year, according to market researcher Strategy Analytics.
