New iGasm: Apple to unveil not one but TWO iPhone 6 models on 9 Sept

What will you be doing that day? What should we be doing?

Poll Apple will, we're told, hold a "big media event" on Tuesday, September 9, which is expected to be the day the long-awaited iPhone 6 is officially revealed.

El Reg's invite to the bash appears to have been lost in the post; instead we learned word of the launch party from the Wall Street Journal and others. Bloomberg reckons Apple will show off not one but two new models: one with a 4.7in touchscreen, and another with a 5.5in display. Today's iPhone 5 has a 4in fondlescreen.

The new gadget is expected to sport an Apple A8 processor – a 64-bit ARMv8-compatible package. Mid-September is usually when the Cupertino giant pulls the veil back to reveal a thing the internet has been hyping up for months beforehand.

Apple has allegedly ordered as many as 80 million iPhone 6s that'll be packed with super-tough sapphire glass and feature a case that'll light up when you get a message, and OK, you get the idea.

More importantly, if by some miracle the invite to the launch event does show up, how should The Reg respond? We leave it in your hands, dear readers. ®
