iPhone 6s rumor season is in full swing, but we won’t have to wait much longer until Apple reveals the real deal.

A fall iPhone 6s launch event is being planned for September 9, according to a new report that also reveals other products that will share the stage with Apple’s new smartphone.

“Sources say Apple executives are likely to show off the company’s latest iPads as well, though that 12.9-inch ‘iPad Pro’ seems to be a wildcard,” reports from Buzzfeed.

Apple hosted a separate October event to announce its new iPad lineup last fall, so it’s interesting that the new tablets will get stage time in September. Perhaps Apple is hoping some iPhone 6s hype will rub off on the iPad, which has had less-than-stellar sales the last year.

A radically upgraded Apple TV, with new features like an A8 processor, expanded memory, new remote and support for third-party apps, is also expected to make an appearance at the September 9 event.

New features expected to be added to the iPhone 6s include Force Touch, improved camera and faster wireless speeds.
