The speculation about whether Apple is really going to unveil the next iPhone at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium is over: Apple just sent out invites to its next keynote, which will take place Wednesday, September 9, at 10 a.m., in the historic San Francisco auditorium where Steve Jobs unveiled the Apple II.

Apple is expected to unveil two new smartphones — the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus — at the event. The new devices are expected to feature a faster processor, 12-megapixel rear camera, improved front camera, Force Touch and a number of other additions.

Along with the iPhone announcements, the Apple TV could see some stage time at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Previous rumors have claimed that an updated set-top box will be revealed, with a new design, third-party app support and a new remote. The long-rumored Apple TV streaming service reportedly will not be ready in time for the event, but could be launched later in the year.

The “Hey Siri, give us a hint” line could be a reference to Siri support coming to Apple TV. Siri is also getting some updates in iOS 9 and could gain some other new skills that would be revealed at the event.

Apple announced on its website today that it will live-stream the September 9 keynote and, for the first time ever, they’re actually supporting Windows. You can also stream the presentation on your iOS device, Mac and Apple TV.
